I have had the privilege of watching her grow up and I am also her godmother. I knew shooting her senior portraits would be a lot of fun. The class of 2021 is facing some unique circumstances being in a pandemic and all. I wanted her photos to be extra special and hopefully bring some normalcy to her. When she suggested we shoot the photos in Detroit, I knew it would be a great time.

We began her session on the Detroit Riverfront at Cullen Plaza and Milliken State Park. Next we headed over to the Belt Alley in downtown Detroit. We finished the session on the grounds of one of my favorite places, the Detroit Institute of Arts. It turned out to be a beautiful afternoon and a session I will never forget.

Angie, I wish you and the rest of the class of 2021 nothing but the best!

Below are some of my favorite photos from the session.

XOXO

Día de los Muertos Ofrenda | Detroit River Walk https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2020/11/d-a-de-los-muertos-ofrenda-detroit-river-walk Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a very special time for my family and I. It is a time to celebrate and honor our loved ones, who have passed away. We always build a family ofrenda in our house and have a special meal that consists of tamales and pan dulce to celebrate. My husband and I are raising our son to celebrate this holiday and hopefully pass this tradition on to his own family one day.

This year, I had the very special opportunity to help build an ofrenda for the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy on the Detroit River Walk. 2020 has been a difficult year for many people and for many reasons. It was built to remember and celebrate the lives of all those, who have passed on, that people could visit to keep their memory alive. 

It was very special for me to see the community interact with the ofrenda. When I was building it with the help from others, several people stopped to talk about their own loved ones who had recently passed away. Others stopped to learn more about Day of the Dead. 

The ofrenda allowed the community to interact with it by leaving the names of their loved ones, who had passed, or special messages for them. It was beautiful to see the amount of messages and the appreciation they had for the ofrenda. I will always treasure this opportunity.

Below are some of my favorite photographs I took.

Catherine & Rose | New Baltimore, MI https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2020/8/catherine-rose-new-baltimore-mi I had a fun summer photo session with beautiful Catherine and her adorable dog, Rose. This location took place in New Baltimore, Michigan surrounded by flowers and a swimming pool.

Catherine is a very resilient woman with a tenacious spirit. Rose is a chocolate Labrador Retriever with a heart of gold. She is such a sweetie and was great for the camera. Catherine's parents even jumped in some photos towards the end of the session.

Catherine, it was great working with you and I wish you all the best!

XOXO

Susan Birthday Session | Grosse Pointe Park, MI https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2020/6/susan-birthday-session-grosse-pointe-park-mi I recently had the chance to do a 40th Birthday portrait session with Susan and her family while social distancing in Grosse Pointe Park, MI.  While staying home due to orders for COVID-19, her husband was looking for creative ways to celebrate his wife's birthday. He ordered a couple dozen penguins and other signs to blanket their front yard in Susan's honor. This birthday session was a lot of fun.

I am so happy to be doing photography with clients once again. I have missed working with people so much! This birthday session was a lot of fun. 

Susan, I wish you a year full of much love and joy. You are FABULOUS!

Calming Your Mind During COVID-19 Part II https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2020/5/calming-your-mind-during-covid-19-part-ii My next installment of the Calming Your Mind During COVID-19 series is made up of beautiful mountain vistas and forest images. It has been scientifically proven that being in nature calms the mind, body and spirit. Connecting with nature allows you to unplug (if you let it), take in beautiful scenery and breathe in fresh air.

I know right now we can't all go stand on a mountain top or hike through the forest. In lieu of a hike or walk, I have put together some of my travel photos taken over the years. 

As you look at these photos, try to take in a deep breath, hold it for 4-5 seconds and then slowly exhale. Heck, even put on some relaxing music if you can. I hope you will feel calmness start to spread. This process can be simple.

Right now, we are living in very uncertain times. My hope is that, by viewing these photos, you will be able to relax your mind for a few moments.

Stay tuned for more to come.

As always, I wish you all good health, the ability to calm your mind, and continued happiness.

Renee

Calming Your Mind During COVID-19 Part I https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2020/4/calming-your-mind-during-covid-19-part-i As we go through this COVID-19 pandemic, it can often be hard to calm your mind. It is scary to watch this virus tear through our lives not knowing what life will look like on the other side of this. One thing that helps calm my anxiety is being by the water. It could be a lake, river, pond or my personal favorite, the ocean. Being by the water is food for my soul.

Since we can't all be by the water right now, I thought I would put together some of my favorite photos of water that I have taken over the years. It is my hope that, by just looking at pictures of the water, I can help at least one person calm their mind.

I have decided to start a series of blogs that contain images that make you feel good, induce calmness and maybe even put a smile on your face.

Stay tuned for more to come.

I wish you all good health, the ability to calm your mind, and continued happiness.

XOXO

Renee

The Best of 2019 https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2019/12/the-best-of-2019 I had so much fun in 2019.

I had the pleasure of taking senior photos, photographing newborn triplets, taking pictures at one of the hottest Latin dance nights in Detroit, weddings, professional head shots, family photo sessions, photos for future use by local businesses, maternity sessions, local events, and more.

My clients took me all around Detroit and the tri-county (Wayne, Oakland and Macomb) area to places like the Detroit Riverfront, Belle Isle, Garden Theater, various neighborhoods, rooftops, alleyways, and more. Also, I was able to take some photos on a recent trip to Puerto Rico.

I am honored that my clients trusted me to capture their special moments. My favorite part of being a photographer is having the ability to capture special moments as photographs to last a lifetime for my clients. My deepest wish is for them to be able to look back on their photos one day and relive those moments. 

I want to thank everyone that I had the good fortune to work with in 2019. I look forward to 2020 and all that is to come.

Below are some of my favorite photos and memories of this past year.

I wish you all a year full of much love and happiness. Happy New Year!

XOXO

Danielle & David | Infinity & Ovation Yacht Wedding on Detroit River https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2019/12/danielle-david-infinity-ovation-yacht-wedding-on-detroit-river A wedding on Lake St. Clair followed by a reception down the Detroit River is how this couple celebrated their love for one another.

The day began early with the bride and groom getting ready at two separate hotels-taking care not to see each other before the wedding. The bride was surrounded by her mother and bridesmaids, as she stepped into her beautiful gown from Bombshell Bridal Boutique.

After getting ready, the bride and groom were both swept away by limousine and taken to the docks of the Infinity and Ovation Yacht Charters. It is here on the edge of Lake St. Clair where the couple exchanged their wedding vows. It was special to see the look in David's eyes, as he first laid eyes on Danielle, who began her walk down the aisle. 

After the wedding ceremony, Danielle, David and all of their guests headed to the Infinity yacht to celebrate at their reception. The yacht left the dock and began its trek through Lake St. Clair and onto the Detroit River. The scenery was absolutely stunning, as guests celebrated this lovely couple. David and Danielle shared their first dance, as a married couple on the deck of the yacht in between the beautiful skylines of Windsor and Detroit. We finished the day with beautiful photos taken at Belle Isle.

It was a pleasure to work with Danielle and David. I am honored that they chose me to document their special day. I wish them much love and happiness as they begin this new chapter of their life together.

Christmas Time | Detroit https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2019/12/christmas-time-detroit Christmas has always been a favorite time of year for me.

It is always so heartwarming to see holiday cards containing images that I was able to take for my clients.

This beautiful mama to be had some great ideas of her own and was open to some of my suggestions as well. We had a beautiful morning to take photographs.

I wish Fatima and Matthew much love and happiness as they prepare for their little one to come.

Thank you for choosing me to be your photographer!

Human Trafficking Awareness 5K | Grosse Pointe, MI https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2019/10/stop-traffic-human-trafficking-awareness-5k-grosse-pointe-mi Awesome is how I would describe the day! Last month I had the opportunity to be a sponsor for Soroptimist International of Grosse Pointe's Human Trafficking Awareness 5K. I was able to combine my love of photography with a cause that is important to me. It was a great day for a 5K run/walk that went through the neighborhoods of Grosse Pointe Woods and St. Clair Shores. I was happy to support this event with my photography. All of the money raised from the event is going to organizations in the Detroit area to help fight human trafficking in the area.

The French Cow | Eastern Market, Detroit https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2019/9/the-french-cow-eastern-market-detroit I absolutely love The French Cow crepe shop.

Every time I shop at Eastern Market, on a Saturday morning, I have to stop at this wonderful stand of deliciousness. The owner, Marie, is from France and we are fortunate enough to have her in Detroit making her savory and sweet crepes for all who order them. A little bit of something for everyone!

Marie not only sets up at Eastern Market, but she, sometimes, pops up around other parts of town.

To see where she is going to be, follow her on Facebook

Below are some recent photos I caught of her and her mom making crepes:

This photo session had several locations in Detroit that included the Detroit Riverfront and Eastern Market. Denzel was very open to ideas and locations, which made the session that much more fun.

I wish him much success, as he begins his new career.

The art fair was held in the city park nestled along Lake St. Clair in downtown New Baltimore. You could not ask for a more beautiful setting to hold an art fair. It was a beautiful weekend that brought out thousands of people to check out the art and craft tents. There were great pieces at affordable prices.

The art fair is held every Labor Day weekend. Be sure to check it out next year!

She wanted to use it to capture photos of her family, which included three children.

We decided to hold the photo session at Pier Park in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan. We had a beautiful evening, complete with sailboats sailing on Lake St. Clair that provided a peaceful background.

Wendi's family was a joy to work with. The kids were adorably charming and helped to contribute ideas on how they wanted to be photographed.

Peresky Triplets | Detroit, MI https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2019/6/peresky-triplets-detroit-mi That's right - Triplets! Two girls and a boy! Sometimes the best things in life come in threes. I recently had the pleasure of photographing Detroit's own triplets along with their parents Jeanette Pierce and Richard Peresky. I have known Jeanette for a long time and was honored she chose me to photograph her growing family. These sweetie pies are the cutest and you can already see their individual personalities starting to emerge at this age of two months old.

It was a challenge trying to photograph all three babies without any crying going on, but there was no better way than to capture them in their natural element. I wish much love and happiness for these three siblings. Now, I need to work on scheduling my next visit so I can cuddle with these cutie pies!

She is very artistic, so at her suggestion we held her session on the grounds of the Detroit Institute of Arts and The Belt Alley in downtown Detroit. Both of these locations are very inspiring and overflowing with great photo opportunities.

We started at the Belt Alley and after we finished there, we headed to the Detroit Institute of Arts.

Maya was a natural in front of the lens. I wish her much success and happiness, as she closes out her final weeks of high school.

Jessica & Jonathan Maternity Session | Detroit Riverfront https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2019/3/jessica-jonathan-maternity-session-detroit-riverfront Jessica and Jonathan are due to have their baby in March. We decided to take a chance and hold their winter maternity portrait session outside along the Detroit riverfront at Cullen Plaza and Milliken State Park in Detroit, Michigan.

Jessica and Jonathan were a fun couple to work with. They came with some of their own ideas of poses and were open to the suggestions I had. The day we held their session ended up being really cold, but they were troopers. This couple never stopped smiling and had a fun time from start to finish.

I wish this couple much love and happiness, as they turn their family of two into three!

Are you expecting a baby or know someone who is? If so, I would love to work with you and create some special memories that will last a lifetime.

Contact me for details.

Salsa at the Garden | Detroit, Michigan https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2019/2/salsa-at-the-garden-detroit-michigan When I was contacted to photograph Salsa at the Garden, I jumped at the chance, since it combined several things that I love: photography, a live salsa band and dancing!

It was a fun evening that also included a Cabresto Tequila tasting, fashion show by Londons Alley, and dance lessons. Live entertainment was performed by la 313 Orquesta. They did a wonderful job of getting everyone on their feet.

If you are looking for a fun night, I strongly encourage you to attend one of the Salsa at the Garden events at the Garden Theater in Detroit, Michigan. There is a little bit of something for everyone and you will not be disappointed.

This annual fundraiser invited guests to put on a mask and enjoy delicious food and beverage from various food trucks, as well as participate in different activities including animal bike rides, tarot card readings, music and more.

A highlight of the event was the completion of the newest mural by Detroit artist, Sydney James, on the Dequindre Cut. I am absolutely in love with this gorgeous mural. 

Here are some of my favorite images from the evening.

Mary & Rob Wedding | Ann Arbor, Michigan https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2018/10/mary-rob-wedding-ann-arbor-mi It was a magical day photographing Mary and Rob's wedding at the University of Michigan Matthaei Botanical Gardens in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

I must say the conservatory and gardens were absolutely gorgeous. It made for a fun day of photographing this terrific couple, on their special day. Mary was stunning, as she walked down the conservatory aisle, and Rob was glowing with happiness, as he waited to take Mary to be his wife.

I wish this newly married couple much love and happiness, as they begin this new chapter in their life.

Jonny Snow & Family | Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2018/9/jonny-snow-family-grosse-pointe-woods-mi I recently had the fine pleasure of photographing the "famous" Jonny Snow the dog and his family in Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan. Working with Jonny and his chihuahua siblings was a blast. Oh, and working with his parents was pretty good too. If you haven't heard of Jonny Snow be sure to follow him on Facebook at: Jonny Snow and on Instagram at: jonnysnowthedog. Jonny is quite the character and will have you laughing in no time. It also did not hurt that his parents were fun to work with and are big Detroit Red Wing fans!

Vanessa Senior Portraits | Detroit Riverfront https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2018/9/vanessa-senior-portrait-session-detroit-riverfront I was happy when Vanessa and her family told me they wanted me to photograph them for their portrait session on the Detroit Riverfront. I always enjoy holding photo sessions along the Detroit Riverwalk. Vanessa is a college senior at Central Michigan University and will be graduating this fall. Graduating from college is a HUGE deal and I think it deserves to be documented in photographs just like high school senior portraits. Working with Vanessa and her family was a great time.

Vanessa, I wish you much success as you get ready to open up a brand new chapter of your life!

There was a lot of heart and soul in this session. I feel honored to have had the opportunity to capture these special moments for them.

My sister-in-law and brother-in-law recently asked me to photograph their maternity session. Of course, I said yes, as I welcomed the opportunity to work with family once again! We chose to do their session at a park in Troy, Michigan that was the perfect fall location. The park was full of trees with beautiful colors that complemented the session and this beautiful mama. My niece joined us for the photo shoot as well. She will make an excellent big sister!

I cannot wait to meet this little one and become an aunt once again!

She has the cutest little toes and fingers.  It was so fun getting to meet her, as I did her parents maternity session a couple of months earlier.

Rayya slept for most of the session, but I was able to capture a few photographs with her eyes open. She is such a sweet little angel.

I wish many blessings to baby Rayya and her wonderful parents.

This was one of the sweetest couples I have worked with. I wish them much love and happiness, as they prepare to welcome their new bundle of joy.

We had a great time taking photographs on the beautiful Detroit RiverWalk, Milliken State Park, Dequindre Cut and Detroit Institute of Arts. Shayna was fun to work with as she posed and danced around to Bruno Mars in the background.

I wish her the the best of luck as she goes off to college in the fall.

Dee's Birthday: 85 Years Young https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2017/6/dees-birthday-85-years-young This past month I had the opportunity to photograph Dee's 85th Birthday Celebration in Bloomfield Hills, MI.

Her daughters held a celebration filled with her closest friends and family. It was easy to see just how loved Dee is. Not a detail of this party was left out: from the table decor to the musicians and food. From the few hours I got to know Dee, I could tell she is incredibly vibrant, fun loving and a woman who loves to dance.

Happy Birthday Dee! I wish you many more.

Rochester Engagement Session - Sarah & Jeremy https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2017/5/rochester-engagement-session---sarah-jeremy It was the perfect spring day to be out shooting an engagement portrait session.

Sarah and Jeremy were a great couple to work with. They are both football fans. Sarah roots for her alma mater of Michigan State, while Jeremy roots for the University of Michigan. Rest assured they don't let this rivalry get between them though! This couple wanted to take their love of football, universities and each other to their engagement photos.

We had fun taking photographs at a local Rochester high school football field. We also took photographs at the local Rochester Municipal Park.

Sarah and Jeremy are a terrific couple. I wish them all the best, as they count down to their wedding date.

Why We Love Our Fur Babies https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2017/4/we-love-our-fur-babies Pets are such a special part of anyone's family. They provide fun, laughter, friendship and a whole lot of unconditional love. You have to love those wet, slobbery kisses they give! I should know, as my family and I have our very own fur baby who is our second child. She has quite the personality and brings so much happiness. We love her to pieces.

Pet photography has really taken off the last few years, as family pets are playing an increasingly more important role. It is only natural to include them in family photos or to hold a special photo session of their own. Who doesn't want photographs of their pet hanging on the wall or in a frame on their desk at work? They are our furry children after all. 

Below are photographs from some of my favorite pet photography sessions to date.

Pan Dulce: The Sweetest Bread in Southwest Detroit https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2017/3/pan-dulce-the-sweetest-bread-in-southwest-detroit This past weekend, I was really craving some pan dulce (Mexican sweet bread), so I decided to go to one of my favorite bakeries in Southwest Detroit. Every once in awhile, I just have to have some. I grew up eating pan dulce, so there is something about eating it that is very comforting for me. Nothing screams delicious on a cold, dreary day like a concha or empanada with a cup of Mexican hot chocolate.

Enjoy some of the photographs I took while searching for the perfect piece of sweet bread.

Remembering Those California Beaches https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2017/3/remembering-those-california-beaches I have always been attracted to the water: perhaps because I grew up on Lake St Clair or maybe because I am a water sign. I, especially, love the ocean. When I lived in California, I tried to spend as much time as possible there. I love the smell of the salt water, the feel of it on my feet and the food that it provides my soul. It is a great source of inspiration in my life.

Below are some photos I took while driving the 17 Mile Drive on the Monterey Peninsula in California.

Tulips on Mackinac Island https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2017/3/tulips-on-mackinac-island Spring is right around the corner. I can't wait for all of the flowers to start blooming and put some color back into the landscape. Tulips are always a sure sign that spring has arrived.  I took the tulip photographs you see below during a springtime trip to Mackinac Island, a few years ago, on the grounds of the Grand Hotel. In honor of the tulip I will leave you with this great quote I found about them.

"A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn’t have to. It is different. And there’s room in the garden for every flower.” – Marianne Williamson

Feeling Warm in Detroit https://www.renee-rodriguez.com/blog/2017/2/feeling-warm-in-detroit Today it was unseasonably warm with a high in the upper 60's. I can't believe it is February in Michigan! As I was out and about around the city, I couldn't help but take some photos. The city was so alive with people everywhere. I just love photographing Detroit. There is so much beauty around every corner.
