Traverse City Senior Portraits that feel like you

Why Senior Portraits?

Our goal is just one thing: creation of unique senior pictures that feel true and authentic. We are not into cheesy poses or props. We are into learning about you, finding unique locations, and bringing out your personality. The best compliment we get is “wow, that was a lot more fun than I had expected”. We want to have fun, create beautiful things, and get to know your spirit.

We have been traverse city senior photographers for over 12 years, and our style has certainly developed, but the goal will always be that same goal.

Packages start at $500 and are completely custom

“YOU truly made senior pics such a fun part of my last year in TC!! Thank you so much, you both truly deserve all the shine+joy+Buzz that your company radiates :))!! 🤩”

Meet your traverse city senior photographer

Michael Stewart Patrick Kent

Photo geek, Hype man, and traverse city senior photographer with "camp counselor energy". I will always be there to help make sure your images are their best. Our sessions are completely about fun, creative play, and just letting go so that your real energy came show through.

No matter where we shoot, your images are going to turn out amazing!
Ok, so how does this work?

Our Process


We get a sense of your style, your personality, your vibe

We will send over a simple questionnaire that helps us get to know you.

We create a concept

We propose a date, time, and location concept based on your unique self.

We meet up and make beautiful images together

At the time of your shoot we will meet, make a plan together, and create something completely unique to who YOU are.

We edit them into even more beautiful images

We edit every single image you will ever see from us.

Editing your images takes some time, but we promise the end result is completely worth the wait!

By default we will remove basic blemishes without you even asking. Anything beyond the standard blemish removal we would have to have a chat about. For example, we can not remove braces from every image without charging way too much for it, its a TON of work.


You get images

Our delivery timeline is unique. We create a teaser for you that you should get within 2 weeks of your shoot, then our full delivery is due to you 90 days after our shoot together.

We work SUPER hard to get your full set to you faster, but in our busy season that is a good estimate.
If we are getting close to your yearbook deadline, we have plans for that also. Don't worry!


Posts, Prints, Praise

You can post these images anywhere you want, just please do tag us if it makes sense.

Then we can take those photos and make them into unique products for graduation, the home, and gifts for family.

And finally, everyone loves them and we all get excited to see how people react!

This process is completely custom, as we really want your images to speak to you personally.

Ok, let's do this.
