Ben met me outside of the Central Library on Rose Street last week for his senior portraits and we spent the next hour exploring the downtown area together. Even though Ben is more used to being behind the camera, he was a natural in front of it. He's got a bright future and big plans ahead of him and I was honored to capture senior pictures for him!
We wandered down the Kalamazoo Mall and found a dozen beautiful little spots. If you haven't been downtown Kalamazoo this fall yet, I recommend checking it out. Right now the Metro Toyota SkeleTour is going on – a month-long celebration where downtown streets are adorned with skeletons representing local businesses. Was it hard to avoid all the skeletons in these photos? Yes. Did we make it work? Yes. Do I regret not asking Ben to pose with one of these creepy skeletons? Yes.
