Going For The Gold With Grace and Hurdling To Senior Session Greatness!

This was probably the easiest blog post title I’ve ever had to write!  Going for the gold was easy with Grace because she’s a sweetheart, she’s an accomplished track and field student-athlete, she’s friends with another of our all time fave seniors Jojo, and she’s a gold medal hurdler herself!  Like – for real!

Going For The Gold With Grace…

This was a session of firsts for us – we found a new spot that we photographed for the first time in Pontiac, and we set a hurdle on fire – we’ve set plenty of stuff on fire before but never a hurdle!  Before we get to the hurdle we’ll start with the location photos in Pontiac where we noticed a little marble structure that we never used before that framed Grace nicely:

Gold

Gorgeous!

We also have some fun behind the scenes for you first from the replay of the Instagram LIVE:

We were all a little hungry at this point too, so we stopped for a snack and discovered that while Grace likes guacamole she has zero interest in avocado toast.  We’re not totally sure why.  Hehe…

So an outfit change later we did a little more exploring in Pontiac and captured these next couple images…

Gold

We are always fans of the fire escapes…

Gold

Grace looks amazing!

At this point it was time to get back to the studio where the session got REALLY LIT!!!  Grace brought a hurdle to the studio and we lit it on fire – kinda like the fire Grace leaves in her wake as she hurdles to greatness!  Check out the behind the scenes broadcast of this from Facebook – it’s sooooo cool!

And here’s the fiery result!

Gold

LOVE IT!!!

We’re going to leave you with one more video….  We don’t usually post these types of things here but we can’t help it – we’re just SO excited for Grace!  Not long after our session Grace was off to Argentina to compete in the Summer Youth Olympic Games where she took the GOLD in the women’s 100 meter hurdles!  Here she is going for gold!

And there you have it – now you see what we meant when we said we were going for the gold and hurdling towards senior session greatness!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with Grace!

Ally Photographs Alli – The Sequel! A Stunner Of A Senior Session!

When Ally photographs Alli it’s a good time – we know because it’s happened a couple times before – once when Alli was just a wee lass, once earlier this year for her senior spokesmodel session, and now we bring you highlights of the senior sequel!

Ally Photographs Alli – The Sequel…

We spent most of our time on location for some beautiful summer themed images and we definitely got what we set out for…

Ally Photographs Alli

So pretty!!!  One of our favorite meadows and Alli looks amazing.

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the session and we also hear from proud mom Risa who joined us!  First from the meadow on Instagram!

 

Now let’s get up close and personal with our model…

Ally Photographs Alli

LOVE. IT.

At this point we switched locations to get a few photos by the water at Orchard Lake.  It was a perfect day too…

Ally Photographs Alli

Beautiful!

We have more behind the scenes fun here as well this time from Facebook Live:

A Stunning Breakaway Senior Session In Hockeytown With Morgan!

A breakaway in hockey is when a player has the puck and an open skating lane to the net with no one in front of her.  That’s how we felt with Morgan on her senior session – nothing stopping us and nothing stopping this girl!  Morgan is one of our spokesmodels for the class of 2019 and we were looking forward to this session – especially since Little Caesars Arena is her team’s home ice and we were able to get on the ice for a few photos!  But more on that later…

A Stunning Breakaway Senior Session…

Morgan’s mom Jodi joined us for an overall epic day in Detroit which started on Belle Isle.  We really thought we might be in trouble with the weather but that day was pretty much do or die scheduling wise and it started to pour on the way down.  Uh oh….  BUT – lo and behold it stopped when we got to Belle Isle and there wasn’t another drop from the time we started photographing Morgan!  Let’s start with this amazing new angle of the D as the backdrop for this stunning image of our girl!

Breakaway Senior

WOWWWWWWW.  Such a cool image and Morgan looks fantastic!

Here’s one up close and personal:

Breakaway Senior

At this point we headed over to Eastern Market to get some murals and we fired up the Instagram LIVE for some behind the scenes fun:

And here’s a cool mural shot with Morgan’s reflection in the water from the day’s rains…

Breakaway Senior

Just love that one…

Now it was time to head over to Little Caesar’s Arena and with a little assist from Red Wings Zamboni legend and building manager Al Sobotka we headed on down to the practice ice where Morgan’s team the Little Caesar’s 19U Girls AAA plays.  Here’s the fun behind the scenes from Facebook Live!

And we’ll leave you with this fun photo from the ice!

Breakaway Senior

Okay actually we’ll leave you with the Snapchat story from the day because it’s just too good…. including the fiery setup in the studio after a stop at Chili Mustard Onions for lunch!  So much to cover – too much to cram all of it into a blog post!!! Lol…  

And there you have it – a stunning breakaway senior session with Morgan in Hockeytown indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

It’s Madi Madness! A Super Fun Senior Session That We “Crushed”!

So how about some Madi Madness?  Madness in a good way – as in madly great photos of a madly great girl…  What a sweetheart and her mom Teresa is a delight as well!  We actually met Madi months ago here at the studio when she popped in with our son’s buddy and current spokesmodel (and current Madi boyfriend) Josh, and we liked her instantly – she’s hard not to like.

Madi Madness

We had a game plan that focused mainly on outdoor location photos in Birmingham and we even had the pup join!  But first let’s start with just Madi with this beautiful closeup:

Madi Madness

 
Gorgeous!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes first from the replay of our Instagram Livestream:
 

And here’s where the session temporarily went to the dogs – say hi to Ollie!

Madi Madness

Love a smiling pup!

At this point we headed over to downtown Birmingham where we took this classic pose by Madi’s request – and she rocked it!

Madi Madness

We fired up the live video one more time too – this time on Facebook Live:

And we’ll leave you with one more cute pose with the lamppost:

Madi Madness

Love it!  And we love Madi Madness!  We hope you loved the highlights of our day with her!

Oh wait….  our friend Aaron Norvell has a hashtag he’s promoting on Instagram called #IJustCrushed – we got in on that as a little bonus for you… hehe…

Dov Takes Over Detroit With An Epic Senior Session and a Day Of Firsts!

What a day… when Dov takes over Detroit epic stuff happens – at least it did this time.  Lots of firsts and new things for us – a new mural, a new bridge, a new photographer friend, a new restaurant for lunch…. a very memorable day overall.  Dov is also a buddy of our Tony so we knew this would be a good time.

Dov Takes Over Detroit

Dov’s mom Lauren joined us for some exploring down in Detroit – we figured we’d get our usual spots – Belle Isle, a few murals over by Eastern Market etc.  But we were approached by a photographer named Jen on Belle Isle who took us to a secret place (lol) and we took a few amazing photos on this really cool bridge!Dov Takes Over

So cool – and the photo above of our guy doesn’t do it justice – just take a look first at our fun behind the scenes video from Instagram Live!

And the result:

Dov Takes Over

Dope!

At this point we headed over to Eastern Market for some murals and got a few really cool photos – first with the mosaic wall which is becoming one of our faves:

Dov Takes Over

Here’s the behind the scenes from that one with the replay from the Facebook LIVE broadcast:

Last but not least we explored a little further down a street we hadn’t been down and discovered a new mural we hadn’t seen before – so cool!

Dov Takes

 

And there you have it!  After a well-earned stop at the first vegan coney in Detroit – Chili Mustard Onions (fantastic by the way) we headed home.  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with Dov!

Chloe Makes Another Cameo Here With Senior Pictures From Birmingham!

We’re excited to bring you another cameo from Chloe here on our blog!  Chloe is representing our studio as a spokesmodel for the class of 2019 at Birmingham Groves and she’s the third and final Frameable Faces senior of three sisters in this family!  Chloe is closing a chapter you might say…and while she might be last she’s certainly not least!

Chloe Makes Another Cameo

For Chloe’s session her mom Krista accompanied us to Birmingham where we got some natural settings and some city settings – we’ll start with the natural first…

Another Cameo

So pretty!!!

We also have some behind the scenes fun from the session – first with the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast:

At this point we headed over to downtown Birmingham where we got some great stuff!  Like this…

Another Cameo

And this….

Another Cameo

We also have some behind the scenes from the Instagram Live we did as well:

And we’ll leave you with one more photo:

Another Cameo

A little patriotic flair on that one – she was born on the 4th of July after all…!  And there you have it – another cameo from Chloe and it’s a fine one!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our morning with her!

A Fiery Studio Senior Session Full of Jump Shots With Jada!

Okay so there’s no such thing really as a “jump shot” in photography terminology.  We technically don’t even use the word “shots” often, preferring to call them “photos”.  However in this case we’ll make an exception because a “jump shot” IS a basketball term, Jada is a hoopster, and she makes us want to jump (for joy of course) when we have her in the studio, so “jump shots with Jada” it is!  Jada’s mom Glenda is a delight as well and we were really happy they picked us!

Jump Shots With Jada

Jada plays guard for the West Bloomfield Lakers and we love photographing athletes so we planned a few photos in her uniform, but before we get to those we played around with multiple colors and outfits all in the studio which is a lot of fun – it gives us a chance to kind of stretch out and experiment a little without having to get going outside at some point:

Jump shots

Okay, she’s adorable…

We also have plenty of fun behind the scenes action – first with the replay of the Facebook LIVE video:

Love that gold…  next we moved to the red background with the red couch for this “BOSS” photo…

Jump shots

Just slaying the camera there… OWNING it!!!

Next we brought out the black backdrop and this combo just worked!

Jump shots

Gorgeous.

Now it was time to get out the Laker gear and get some FIRE going…  We have some behind the scenes of the hoops photos with the flaming ball too that we streamed on Instagram – don’t try this at home you crazy kids….

And the fiery result:

Jump shots

So cool!!!  We loved our jump shots with Jada and we hope you liked the highlights of our day with her!

Classifying Claudia’s Closeups as Clearly The Cat’s Pajamas!

Alliteration runs wild as we’re classifying Claudia’s Closeups as Clearly The Cat’s Pajamas!!!  They are indeed and we’re not surprised.  Claudia has represented our studio as a spokesmodel this year at our beloved alma mater North Farmington High School and we couldn’t be prouder.  She’s really “put her best foot forward” – more on that in a sec.  The truth is we do love this girl and we’ve been so happy to get to know her and her delightful momma Sandy.  We have a ball when we’re hanging out with these girls.

Best Foot Forward

Meanwhile Claudia achieved a little fame this year – well part of her did.  You see, our school now has a tradition that has become well known and even covered in the online media such as Mashable which involves dressing up as hilarious characters for their student IDs and these shenanigans tend to go viral.  Here’s the screen shot from the Mashable article which saved Claudia’s as the best for last…..

What an ID!!!!   LOL….so hilarious.  Nice work Claudia!

Meanwhile we wanted to get some photos of not just Claudia’s foot, so we headed out on location to a few natural settings on a nice sunny day armed with a few wardrobe changes and here are the highlights!

Claudia’s Closeups

Closeups

Wow!  Claudia looks amazing in the meadow!  We have some fun behind the scenes action for you as well, 

And another result from the preserve:

CloseupsStunning…

At this point we moved to another location where we saw (and avoided) a bee’s nest about the size of a large watermelon…. whoa.  But we got more great photos – all of Claudia’s closeups from this day as we stated in the title were the cat’s pajamas…

Closeups

We also have more behind the scenes fun this time from Facebook:

 

And one last photo from our day:

Closeups

Just beautiful!!!

So there you have it – classfying Claudia’s closeups as the cat’s pajamas was clearly on point – wouldn’t you agree?  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Jeremy’s Jam – A Killer Senior Session With A Kick!

Wow – Jeremy’s senior session was the jam – an epic day that took us from their home on the lake all the way down to Detroit for some Eastern Market Mustang Mural Madness and back to the studio for some pics with a KICK!  What a day…  and what a family!  Love these guys and they joined us too!

Jeremy’s Jam

After a brief start at the homestead with a few extended family photos we headed to downtown Detroit and the Eastern Market neighborhood for a couple murals, but this was no ordinary senior-with-a-mural shot – okay none of them are “ordinary”, but this was a mural Jeremy and his parents had their eye on – a huge Ford Mustang, and a perfect spot to park Jeremy’s Mustang in front of!  SO COOL – here’s a little video of us getting the shot and it took a little trial and error to get the lighting right but Ally finally found the spot for the off camera flash which you can see on the ground in this video…

…and here’s is the killer result!

Kick

Love that photo!  A first for us of its kind…

We also grabbed another mural photo up close with Jeremy here – also a first with a mosaic wall we had been wanting to use for a while (we’ve already been back since):

Kick

Love it!

Session With A Kick

After a stop at Pie-Sci for the best Pizza in Detroit we headed back to the studio to finish things up and we started with the yearbook photo and then a few more formal pics…

Kick

Looking sharp!

Next we got some soccer gear going – we love sports photos especially when they’re on FIRE!  Here’s some more behind the scenes fun this time from the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

And one of the fiery results (which almost burned down the studio…lol):

Kick

Another first – with the flaming ball on the foot!  Jeremy’s Jam was a session of firsts and we got a real KICK out of it indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!
