Grace planned her senior photos for a “destination Door County session”. For she and her family, Door County is a little place they like to escape to, and she knew it would be the perfect location to document her final year of high school.
For Grace’s first location, she knew she wanted Whitefish Dunes, a Wisconsin state park that has lots of good family memories for her. We never get to shoot here for two reasons, the first that it’s on the lake side (so no sunset opportunities) and the second that it’s just a short walk from Cave Point County Park which is one of the most popular locations in Door County because of the escarpment. That means this beachy, woodsy gem always gets overlooked. We were so happy to take a little hike with Grace and her mom down to the beach and capture that soft, flattering, lakefront light. We did a few photos cozied up in the sand, then made our way down to the white stones and briefly into the water.
After Whitefish Dunes, we crossed the peninsula to Anderson Dock in Ephraim. Anderson Dock has some family history for me and also happens to be an epic sunset spot in Door County! The building is iconic and the view is unbeatable…what more could we want? We got there just at the start of golden hour for warm light around the building and docks, then waded out to the end of the slippery pier for the perfect Door County sunset. What a dream session! Congratulations, Grace!
