To brandish is “to wave or flourish (a weapon) in a triumphant, threatening, or ostentatious way” and in this case we are brandishing Brandon – his senior photos that is, because Ally’s “weapon” is a Canon 5D Mark III, the photos are awesome, and so that does make this indeed a “triumph”! At least we think so… Haha!
We photographed Brandon’s sister Lindsey for her senior session a couple years ago (not to mention for years before that for her dance photos) and we’ve known Brandon for a few years so we were happy to get the call from his mom Michelle that they were returning! Brandon is a great kid – soft spoken but driven and we enjoyed being with him a lot! So let’s get to the photos…!
We started out in the studio on the black background and this first photo is great in black and white!
We also have some behind the scenes action for you – here is the replay of our studio broadcast on Periscope – if you want to be a part of our live broadcasts there you can download the app and follow us at @frameablefaces at this link, and if you prefer to just watch from twitter you can do that here.

Now let’s continue to our location photos in Birmingham where we got some natural photos and some city photos – we’ll start with the natural setting…
There was a little chill in the air on this day but overall the conditions were fine and the lighting was great… We broadcasted a little more at this spot, this time on Facebook Live, and it was around this time that Michelle had to run back to the van to get something – she had a little trouble with the car alarm and she caused a bit of a ruckus… haha!!!
One more by the stream…
At this point we headed over to downtown Birmingham to get some brick and textures where we captured this close up:
And there it is – brandishing Brandon – triumphantly as the definition suggests! We think his session rocked and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!
