Lake Michigan Senior Photos

One of the best things about growing up in West Michigan is our easy access to the natural beauty of Lake Michigan.  It’s a favorite place to photograph families, nature, and of course high school seniors.  When you’re doing senior photography at the beach, it’s important to plan accordingly for great results.

Senior Photos at Kirk ParkMatt needed his Senior Photos for Allendale High School and was the 3rd Allendale senior we’ve photographed in the last year.  We will be doing more senior photos in Grand Rapids for Matt soon but enjoy what we have here.

High School Girl SeniorLindsey is a senior near Portage and Kalamazoo Michigan who loves all things progressive and artistic.  She grew up loving the beach and the city so we made her senior photo shoot feel natural and fun with different elements that Lindsey loves!
Girls Senior PhotosOur approach to senior photos is comfortable, natural, and fun.  Although we can airbrush or edit your photos, our goal is to show of the best of who you are, naturally!  Lindsey looks great in the Arts District of Benton Harbor, sister city to Saint Joseph Michigan.  St Joseph Michigan Senior PhotographyWe also went off to the docks at the Golf Club at Harbor Shores for some relaxed photos.Girl Senior Photography St Joe MichiganAnd as always, we try to get beautiful shots as well as some fun ones.High School Senior Photos GirlsI’m not sure if you want a boring session but we certainly don’t!  Mom, Dad, Grandma, Brother, and Uncle Rick all loved that we had to get down in the water to make this shot happen and the result is just a little different and fun! Beach Senior PhotosToward the end of the session, we all went down to the beach at Tiscornia Beach / Tiscornia Park for the rest of Lindsey’s High School Senior Photos.

You may’ve seen Kollen and Lindsey’s senior photos on here but did you realize we did them together?  Twins have a special bond the rest of us can’t claim to understand so we tried to capture a little of that in between their individual High School Senior Photo Shoots.

Senior PhotosIt’s pretty obvious how well the brick and urban look works for senior photos but it’s especially good with the seniors together!Senior Photos with Twins Of course I was going for a particular look for Lindsey but putting the two together gave us some more fun ideas 😉Sibling Senior PhotographyTwins?  Yeah!High School TwinsBeach Senior Photos We ended the night at the pier at Tiscornia Park on Lake Michigan!

Senior Photos Grand RapidsGuys can AND love to do the deluxe sessions just as much as girls when they’re doing their Senior Photos — they just need to be comfortable knowing they’ll get to do what they like and look comfortable doing it!  If it’s your skateboard, football, guitar, or something else that helps you stand out, bring it along to make your photos YOU!

Country Girl with HorseNot every High School Senior wants to do their senior photos on a beach or downtown.  Every senior has their interests and we want to capture what makes them look their best which sometimes means going to places like the barn where Rileigh works with horses.Themed Senior Photo

Rileigh is a fun girl so we knew it was necessary to capture her, not only in her favorite element with horses, but also with her personality shining through.  She’s no “one dimensional girl” so these photos were our way of capturing who she is naturally on many levels!

High School Senior Girl

One thing about Terpstra Photography shooting your High School Senior Pictures is we often make you laugh at the wrong time (like when you’re balancing on an odd rock against the bard door).  Not to worry, it’ll still be a great photo 🙂

Whether it’s attitude, grace, elegance, style, or goofiness, we’re always going to get the most out of you in your photos and without rushing you so it’ll truly be an EXPERIENCE you’ll always remember in photos!Girl

For the polar opposite type of photos, how about we go from the fields north of Grand Rapids with a high school girl to the streets downtown with a guy for Mattson’s Senior Photo Shoot!
