Senior Portrait Portfolio - Lansing Photobooth - McNeilly Photography Studio

We are announcing our new Inside Out Series. We still go out to the Ledges or other places but this great session addition blends variety and our unique style for almost limitless possibilities. We want to be different from the rest and still offer you the best value and quality. Why just have to put up with a run of the mill blue or grey background when there is so much more that can be done? We have unique backgrounds only available through our studio.

During our Sessions we try to create photographs considering many factors such as the clothing, activity or style that brings out the best in you. Most Studios only have a few backgrounds to do this while we have Hundreds of possibilities waiting for you. Just look at the results.  We don't have to worry about the weather.  In many instances we are doing things that they can't even replicate on demand.  Our Outside Inside session is a creative session that looks like it was done on location, but was done in the studio.

Remember that we still go outside when we can but there is a lot we can do even when the weather is bad. And many of these looks you can't even get locally or even outside because of how they were created.

For years the amateur has avoided the studio because they don't know lighting. They scoffed at the "stuffy" studio stuff (you know, stuff like knowing lighting and posing to make you look good) and tried to get you to go to a park usually because they didn't have a studio anyway. The result was snapshots that were just like vacation snapshots.

By now you are realizing that lack of training does show up in the photographs. It is not just the canvas you are buying but the artist that uses his tools and techniques to render his work. In other words, even if you have a nice paintbrush it still won't get it on paper without the artist.   The tools we use are very difficult to work with as everything has to be done right, to look right.  A loose uneducated style is not the approach needed to consistently produce these kind of photos with great results.

Just so you know, we don't think we are perfect, we are not. It just takes a lot of skill to do this and we firmly believe that saying you "love" or "have a passion" is not  the required skill needed for professional results.  We knew there was no shortcut around training and we went to Photography School and invested in education to have the knowledge and skill to create images of high quality.  We not only love what we do but it is what we trained for.  Here are some of the images we have produced.
