A Little Art, A Little Greek & A Lot Of Go Blue For These M Grads!

We’ve been making the rounds to the college campuses around the state for grad pictures and this time we bring you highlights from a couple of Wolverines in Ann Arbor!  These two M grads were both delightful and we enjoyed our time with each!  Let’s start with Dave!

A Little Greek with Dave

Dave is a sweetheart of a dude.  We really enjoyed our time with him and he was a trooper because it was not warm…. but he’s going to be a teacher and he’s the perfect guy for it.  You would love to have this guy teaching your kid.  We hit the law quad first for this fantastic pic:

M Grads

Next stop we went by Dave’s fraternity house for this one in front before we parted ways!

M Grads

Love it!

Alexandra’s Art

Alexandra is an incredible artist.  Like really incredible – and her work was on display at the Stamps School of Art and Design – what a delight she is!  Take a look at this photo of her in front of this amazing piece!

M Grads

We were treated to Alexandra taking us through her art in a livestream and you HAVE to check out her website at www.alexandracollinsart.com

Jen and Alaina Handle Their Business Graduating From MSU!

We had such a blast with these two besties in East Lansing – both grads of the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State!  Jen and Alaina are both delights – smart, beautiful, nice, fun – a power duo for sure!  We bounced around campus on a PERFECT day to get some pics so let’s get to a couple highlights!

Jen and Alaina Handle Their Business!

Let’s start on the bridge by the stadium…

Grand Valley Grads Go For It In Grand Rapids!

We’re really making the rounds this year to college campuses around the state for graduation photos and having an absolute blast doing it!  We love this time of year and this was our first trip to Grand Valley specifically for grad pics!  We have highlights from a couple sessions – a pair of besties as well as another individual!

 

 

 

 

Grand Valley Grads – Kirah & Amalia!

As for the girls it was unseasonably cold for their session but you wouldn’t know it from their photos – they were total troopers.  Kirah we met last year when we photographed her sis Kailee at MSU and this time it was her turn with her pal Amalia!  Let’s take a look at a couple:

Grand Valley Grads

Ha – beneath the Blue Bridge these two are peas in a pod… 

We like this one at the main campus entrance:

Grand Valley Grads

 

Grand Valley Grad Matthew!

Matthew went solo (okay his mom and sis got in a few too but this post is about the grads lol) the next morning and it was slightly warmer….just slightly.  But once again we got great results!  We hit one of the spots he resided while in school up there in Allendale!
 
Grand Valley Grads
Here’s a little behind the scenes with Matthew…
 

And then from there it was back to the Blue Bridge and this is a great one to finish on for now!

Grand Valley Grads
Love that blue on blue!!!
 
And there you have it!  A great weekend on the west side of the state for us and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of these Grand Valley grads!!!

Kicking Off The Class Of 2024 College Grad Pics With Spartans!

Ah yes, Spring is in the air and so is college graduation!  This has become such a fun time of year for us and if this first crew of the 2024 college grad season in East Lansing is any indication it’s going to be a fantastic one!!!  We also lucked out with the weather – it was a beautiful sunny morning on campus!

2024 College Grad Pics with Spartans!

Let’s get to some highlights – how adorable is this group?

2024 college grad

There are plenty of spots around campus to use – some of them iconic and some of them spur of the moment!  The Sparty statue is obviously pretty iconic…

2024 college grad

Here’s a little behind the scenes from the bridge by the stadium…

Next is one of those spur of the moment pics – when you see a prime spot for this fantastic five to sit and the sun is hitting just right?  Spectacular!!!

2024 college grad

Now it was time to change into casual clothes and have some fun…

2024 college grad

This crew of besties loves each other!

Ha!  Congrats girls!!!
 
We had a blast with these Spartans and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our morning with them!

It’s The Thrill Of (Photographing) The Chase(s)!!!

Yep it’s the thrill of the Chase (s)!!!!!  We are big fans of this fam and Jordan was a spokesmodel for us a few years back so it was a thrill indeed to get them back to the studio for some delightful family portraits and they brought Gizmo the pup!  Gizmo is awesome.  Let’s get to some highlights!

The Thrill of the Chase(s)

Let’s start with the group:

The Chase

Love it!

We also have some fun behind the scenes first with a JORDAN TAKEOVER of the Instagram… check it out!

Jeremy & Chella…..and One On The Way!

This is starting to happen more and more but it will NEVER get “old.”  We’re talking about former seniors having babies!!!  Jeremy has always been one of our favorites and it’s no surprise that now his wifey Chella is too.  They are a joy to be around and they are expecting – so we were honored to photograph their maternity session here at the studio and had a blast doing it.  We’re thrilled to bring you the highlights!
 

(Soon to not only be) Jeremy & Chella

Chella
Chella looks so radiant!  Ally thinks it’s a boy because Chella looks so beautiful (a girl would “steal” the beauty” lol)!
 
Time for Jeremy to jump in…
 
Chella
So much love!
 
And now for a smile from the happy parents-to-be:
 
Chella
Awesome.
 
And we’ll leave you with this silhouette:
 
Chella
 
These two will be amazing parents and we can’t wait to meet the baby!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with them!

Baila Is BAE-LA! Spokesmodeling In The Studio for 2025!

We are so happy to have Baila on our team!!!  She just fit right in – personality to burn.  And she’s just nice.  And fun. And athletic, and smart and all around adorable, and we had a lot of fun with some new setups in the studio for the upcoming senior class of 2025!  We’ve known Baila’s dad Steve for some time and once we sat down with them to strategize we knew this was going to be a blast.  Let’s get to some highlights shall we?

Baila is BAE

 And by the way we don’t care if BAE is so 2018 – we couldn’t resist lol…

Baila is BAE

Love that full length with the black and white split background – that’s a new one here!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from Facebook where we find out what Baila’s favorite ice cream flavor is (that’s a pretty important topic we usually cover in these).  Haha!

Next we went with the black backdrop – these always look great and Baila crushed it.

Baila is BAE

Gorgeous!  Baila is very comfortable in front of the camera but no senior should ever feel intimidated by the camera – Ally can help – that’s what we’re great at!

Time for another outfit change and that’s also a must – our seniors can change outfits for different looks during their 3 hour sessions as often as they like!

Baila is BAE

Pretty in pink!  Let’s see some more behind the scenes from that one on Instagram:

And here’s one more with a new trick we learned at Imaging USA in Louisville…

Baila is BAE

So cool!  A great one to end on…

We can’t wait to get Baila in front of Ally’s camera again for her full senior session and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with her!  Baila is BAE indeed!

Spokesmodeling With Sophie in The Sity (Okay fine the City)!

If you’ve followed this blog long enough you know we are very alliterative around here…  The “triple s” title for this one was too hard to pass up with our Raider Representative Sophie!!!  North Farmington Raiders that is which WE are as well, and we are heads over heels for this adorable ball of energy and aspiring tattoo artist from the upcoming senior class of 2025!  We’ve actually known Sophie for most of her life so her mom Carrie gave her to us for the day and what a day!  We hung out, laughed a ton, ate, and oh – we took some photos too.  Some AMAZING photos.  We’ve got a lot to look forward to for this upcoming class if our spokesmodel crew is any indicator so far.  Let’s get to the pics!

Sophie In The Sity

We started out at Eastern Market which was definitely bustling on this Saturday morning…

Sophie In The Sity

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!!!!!

And we have some fun behind the scenes as well from the session which is all part of the fun – this one is from Instagram:

Here’s another one close by:

Sophie In The Sity

And more behind the scenes this time from Facebook!

To be clear we go into every senior session with a strategy – we have a consultation with our seniors before every session, and while our spokesmodel sessions tend to be our time to experiment with new locations and techniques we don’t always know when we’ll come across an open suitcase in a vintage store that our fun-sized senior will fit in so perfectly!  Hehe…. this photo is everything. 

Sophie In The Sity

How awesome is that?

And we’ll leave you with this one – a gorgeous dress at a gorgeous spot.  As you can see it’s typical for our seniors to change outfits multiple times for different looks in our sessions.  They can change as many times as they like!

Sophie In The Sity

Wow.  Breathtaking!!!

We cannot WAIT to get this girl in front of Ally’s camera again along with the rest of the class of 2025 Frameable SENIORS, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with Sophie in the Sity!

Teresa’s Triumphant Trio: Senior Portraits in Studio, at the Library, and Outdoors!

Teresa’s Senior Session was a “triumphant trio” of studio, outdoors and at the library!  We’ve photographed a few seniors at the library now and they are so much fun – partly because if a senior is into books then we have a lot to talk about because so are we!  Teresa was no exception – what a delight – smart, funny, adorable – all the things!  And this girl loves history which is Doug’s language.  A class of 2024 senior from Canton Prep, Teresa and her mom Ugochi joined us for quite the enjoyable day – let’s get to the highlights!
 

Teresa’s Triumphant Trio

We’ll start in the studio and on the grey background where Teresa wowed us with a beautiful outfit of traditional Nigerian dress…
 
Triumphant Trio
LOVE!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes from this setup from Facebook Live!
 

An outfit change and a new backdrop later we captured Teresa on the red couch for this one:

Triumphant Trio

Gorgeous.

Okay now let’s get to the second and third parts of the trio!  First outside…

Triumphant Trio

Big fan of that one outside, and then we went into the library where we went live again, this time on Instagram.  But shhhhhhhh – you have to be quiet in the library!  Hehe…

Allie Leads The Way For The Class Of 2025 Spokesmodels!

Wow…. we’re coming up on a quarter of the way into the 21st century and this new crew of spokesmodels WILL be one we are honored to have on our team – starting with Allie representing Frankel Jewish Academy!  Ally babysat Allie’s mom so things continue to come full circle here at Frameable Faces!

We love our spokesmodels and Allie is awesome – adorable, smart, funny, outgoing – we love her!  And her parents Jenny & Ron are pretty okay too – Jenny joined us at the studio for Allie’s spokesmodel session where we brought out a few brand new setups along with a couple of our tried and true favorites!  Let’s take a look!

Allie Leads The Way

Allie

Love the green on green!  The on location photos typically have the overall edge in terms of the percentage that we take of our seniors, but our studio work is so much fun and we’ve been experimenting with some lighting techniques and some new equipment!  We picked up a few tricks in Louisville at Imaging USA last month that we’re darn excited for, and our seniors get to choose studio AND location photos so it’s very common for us to do a little of both even if it’s 1/3rd studio and 2/3rds location.  Any mix is up to the senior and we plan that out in a consultation ahead of time!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the session first from Facebook:

And here’s the result:

Allie

Love it!  Also want to give a shout out to Lisa North of NorthStar Luxe for the wonderful job on Allie’s hair and makeup!  Lisa will be one of our choices for makeup this year – she’s awesome.

Here’s the black and blowy which is an old fave, but we have a new backdrop and lighting setup for it…

Allie

GORGEOUS.

Oh and we have more behind the scenes on that too from Instagram:

A post shared by Doug & Ally Cohen (@frameablefaces)

We’ll leave you with one more outfit change – outfit changes are a must!  We actually allow as many as you like in our three hour sessions!  The sweet spot is usually around 4-5 give or take.

Allie

Oh yeah, and there’s a red gel involved on that one…. SO COOL.

So there you have it!  We are HYPED.  Allie was the perfect spokesmodel to kick it off and we can’t wait to photograph her for her senior pics – we’ve always loved photographing Allie – here’s proof (she’s the older sis):

Cuteness overload.  And now she’s all grown up and a total delight.  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of her session and we can’t wait to share pics with you of the rest of our crew as we gear up for the Class of 2025!!!
