Old Mission Lighthouse Family Portraits

Take a thirty minute drive up Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City and you will end up at Old Mission Lighthouse. The blues of the water, the sound of the splashing waves, and the lush walking trails make this place a great stop for anyone to enjoy. We met up with Shannon and Peter at Old Mission Lighthouse for their family portraits. The last time we saw them was years ago when we photographed their wedding in Munising in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Now they have a beautiful daughter and recently moved to Traverse City.

When we arrived we found their family along the shores of Lake Michigan enjoying the summer weather. We joined up with them at headed to the nearby hiking trails to start their family pictures. Their daughter quickly warmed up to being in front of the camera and her smile was contagious! She loved when Peter & Shannon would walk with her, swing her, and tickle her. They are absolutely wonderful parents.

Afterwards it was off to the lake to get their feet in the water. It was easy to see that this was their favorite part of the session. Their daughter splashed around and giggled with glee. She is like a fish in the water. Before she got to soaked we brought the family to the playground nearby. It was a great way to end this amazing family portrait session. We loved catching up with Shannon & Peter as well as meeting their daughter. Thanks again for all the fun! Enjoy!

She is quite the adventurer already! She couldn’t get enough of hanging from the bar. She kept asking to go up and had the biggest smile on her face when she was there.
