We recently had the amazing opportunity to work with "The Best Dressed Senior" of Bradford Academy in Southfield, MI! It's not every photographer that gets to claim that sort of privileged status - just us cool cats!
Donovin Hendrix was referred to us by my cousin (thanks, Wayne!), who happens to be a teacher at Bradford Academy. We were really excited about Donovin's multiple portrait ideas and couldn't wait to put our creative spin on them when we met in Downtown Detroit. We had recently read an article about the revival of the waterfront warehouse district along the Detroit River, so we had Donovin and his family meet us near the Riverwalk, at the edge of the warehouses. There were so many locations to choose from among the decaying buildings and graffiti, and the new construction and renovations. New life and revival were mixed in with exhausted and aging architecture - the perfect backdrop for Donovin's portraits!
Enjoy this glimpse into Donovin's session and stay tuned for teasers from session number 2 in late July. Don't forget to leave a comment or two!
