Izzy Is In The Hizzy With A Detroit Takeover Senior Session!

Izabela – aka Izzy to her friends – is in the hizzy, and on our blog!!!  What an adorable young lady, but we’re not surprised since we kinda watched her grow up and her parents are great people.  But this summer has been the first time we’ve really had the chance to hang out with her and we’ve loved every minute of it!  Her mom Nadica joined us for a wonderful day in Detroit – we laughed a lot and got some incredible photos, so let’s get to the highlights!
 

Izzy In The Hizzy

 
It was an afternoon session so we started first in the Eastern Market area, figuring our lighting for the Belle Isle photos would be better as the sun got a little lower in the sky for what we wanted.  We went to one of our favorite walls first:
 
Izzy
Okay how cute is she???  We also have some fun behind the scenes for you first from Facebook Live:
 

Next we hit up a spot that we’ve never used before – these painted cement barrel type things…. lol!  We LOVE this one:

Izzy

So cool!!!

In staying with the color texture theme we have this next one, where there is something about the wind blown look that we think is really appealing.  Just a moment captured where Izzy looks so beautiful.

Izzy

At this point we headed to Belle Isle and listen, these were really hard to choose to share for this post… We actually went to the graffiti bridge for some fun and we livestreamed there, but we’ve posted photos on the blog from there before and the last photo we’ll share is undeniable with the purple dress and purple flowers…  First the Instagram LIVE at the bridge:

…and then the purple to leave you with:
 
Izzy
WOW.
 
Okay so there it is – you can see why we were thrilled that Izzy was in the hizzy, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Josie is a Josie – We’ll Explain Below With Her Senior Session Highlights!

Josie is an outgoing smiley cool chick.  She lights up a room and we were looking forward to her session, which rocked!  So sometimes when I write these I search for various stuff online for inspiration – things that match the senior or catch the vibe of the day.  In this case I started by simply Googling “Josie” – just curious what I’d find.  The first result was an (apparently bad) thriller movie that I hadn’t heard of.  BUT – the second result was PERFECT.  It was the definition of a “Josie” in the Urban Dictionary.  I didn’t know a “Josie” was a thing but check this out:
 

UrbanDictionary.com

Holy moly – Josie IS a Josie!!!!!  That is literally perfect.  Josie’s mom Gayle was out of town so she brought an entourage with her – fellow Frameable seniors Carli and Izzy and we had a blast.  We focused on location photos exclusively and we headed to Birmingham to get them…
 

Josie is a Josie…

Josie

Beautiful!!!  And a shout out here to Natalie on hair and Farah on makeup at Mandy Rose Studio for the outstanding job!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from our day first from the Facebook LIVE:

And here’s a stunning image with that outfit…

Josie

 

Love it!

One more from Quarton Lake before we headed on into downtown Birmingham, and how cool is a senior who wears a Ramones shirt to her session???

Josie

 

Hey, ho, let’s go……to downtown Birmingham…. lol!

Here’s a little more behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram:

And we’ll leave you with this one in the city….

Josie

 

So pretty!

And there you have it!  There’s no doubt Josie is indeed a Josie, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Elisha is an Eyeful Of Adorable on her Senior Picture Session!

Elisha is an eyeful of adorable indeed – just a sweetheart and she and her mom Tammy joined us on a perfect day in Birmingham for her senior pictures!  This was not their first time in the studio since we did some family portraits for them some time back, so it was a pleasure to have them back to Frameable Faces!  A great way for Ally to spend part of her birthday – doing what she loves with good people!  Quarton Lake was the gameplan for Elisha and we made it happen, but we’ll start in the studio…

Eyeful Of Adorable

For the studio pictures we kept it pretty simple and we’ll highlight this photo on the white backdrop:

Eyeful

See?  Adorable!

We also have a little fun behind the scenes first from Facebook LIVE:

At this point it was time to head out on location to Birmingham where a ton of flowers were in bloom and the conditions were perfect!

Eyeful

Gorgeous.

We also have more behind the scenes fun from Birmingham from our Instagram livestream:

And here come the flowers…

Eyeful

Love the purple top with the purple flower!

And we’ll leave you this relaxed pose:

Eyeful

So pretty!

And there you have it – Elisha definitely gave us an eyeful of adorable on this day, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!

Emma Elevates The Senior Picture Game In Detroit!

We love Emma.  She is just a burst of personality and total adorable-ness, and on top of that she’s clearly my spirit animal – we totally bonded over American history and that’s pretty much what we talked about while her mom Tara and Ally sat and watched during her consultation.  We decided we’re going to go for coffee and talk about history one day lol!  To that end, Emma had a plan for her love of books to be a part of her senior session and she had scoped out the venerable John K King Bookstore in Detroit as an essential locale in our plan – she even contacted the store where they were more than accommodating in letting us photograph there!  This turned out to be the beginning of an EPIC day that ended up at our fave Chili Mustard Onions for dinner!  So let’s get to what happened at the bookstore and more highlights in between as Emma Elevates the senior picture game!

Emma Elevates

John K King is a massive bookstore of used books that you MUST visit if you haven’t before.  Here’s the behind the scenes Facebook LIVE broadcast where you can tell how giddy we were about photographing there!

And one of the results…

Emma Elevates

How beautiful!  Emma looks amazing and it’s just such a cool photo that really captures a big part of who she is.

From there we headed over to Belle Isle where Emma and Tara had another great prop in store….

Emma Elevates

How fun is the bicycle and the flowers in the basket?  The sky opened up right after this photo with a blast of rain as we scurried back to the car to wait it out.  We just lucked out on that… it didn’t last long and it left behind a gorgeous rainbow in the sky.

We headed over to the edge of the island to get a skyline photo of Detroit and this one with the off-camera flash is awesome – it’s just more of Emma elevating…

Emma Elevates

Last but not least we headed over to Eastern Market for the murals and there’s a funny fruit mural Emma likes a lot so we used that one.  Here’s the behind the scenes from Instagram LIVE (including a “Tara takeover” where Tara took over the broadcast)!

And here is the fun result!
 
Emma Elevates
Adorable!!!
 
And there you have it! Emma Elevates indeed – she slayed on this day!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Dana Dazzles on a Dynamite Senior Picture Session!

Dana dazzles indeed in these highlights from her senior session but we’re not surprised – she’s a spokesmodel for us this year for the Walled Lake Northern Knights, we’ve known her for a couple years now and we had great fun with her for her spokesmodel session!  When we photographed her in March we were in the studio the whole time so this time we got to go on location and we had a perfect day!  Her mom Paola joined us and we LOVE Paola so it made for a great outing – a dynamite session!

Dana Dazzles…

Birmingham was the spot – Quarton Lake specifically, so let’s get to some pics:

Dana Dazzles

She’s adorable!  Let’s give a shout out to Farah at Mandy Rose Studio for the makeup and Lida at Pannos Salon for Dana’s hair too!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the day starting with Instagram LIVE:

Moving right along with an outfit change:

Dana Dazzles

Gorgeous.  Like we said this was just a dynamite session….

Dana Dazzles

Wow….

Let’s see a little more behind the scenes fun this time from Facebook:

And we’ll leave you with this last one…

Dana Dazzles

So yeah…..Dana dazzles – no doubt about that, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Adin (and Detroit) Versus Everybody On An Awesome Senior Session!

Adin is a great dude and he has totally fit right in – we love hanging with this guy and we have been honored to have him representing our studio for the class of 2020 from Frankel Jewish Academy!  When we photographed him for his spokesmodel session back in May he was solo, but this time for our trip to Detroit he had his mom Nancy join us and she’s a lot of fun!  “Detroit Versus Everybody” is symbolic of how Detroit came back after many assumed the city was all but dead and now it’s thriving!  We celebrate that when seniors say they want to head downtown for photos and we had a great day down there with Adin and Nancy so let’s get to some highlights!

Adin Versus Everybody!

We headed first to Belle Isle where we got one of the Detroit skyline poses that we love…

Versus Everybody

So cool!

We spent quite a bit of time on Belle Isle where there is much to see, including one of our favorite bridges:

Versus Everybody

What a pic – Adin looks GREAT.

We also headed to a cool bridge that we’ve used a few times and we have some behind the scenes action – first on Facebook:

…and the result:

Versus Everybody

We hit a couple more spots as well including this one along the Riverwalk – here’s some more behind the scenes this time from Instagram:

From there we headed over to the Belt alley to get a couple more to wrap it up and here’s a cool one with a mural as a backdrop:

Versus Everybody

Love it!

What a cool day – Adin versus everybody ladies and gentlemen!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Ava Ahead Of Her Time On An Unequaled Senior Session!

This post features Ava ahead of her time – there’s no doubt she is.  She suggested an idea we had never done before on a whim and it turned out to be one of the coolest ideas we’ve done with unique results that we’ll definitely return to with other seniors!  We’ll save those for last.  Ava is a spokesmodel for us representing the Bloomfield Hills Blackhawks for the class of 2020, and privately Ally was worried about trying to top her spokesmodel session this time since the Detroit session in April was SO great.  Well…..we think we may have done it.

Ava Ahead Of Her Time

The plan this time was to head to Karner Blue Stables where Ava’s horse Oscar stays – what a beauty he is, and the spots for photos were aplenty.  Ava’s mom Stacie whom we’ve known since high school was there to join us and we had much fun as we always do now with them.  We started with just a few natural pics and we’ll also give a shout out to Adria at The Beauty Lounge for the great job on Ava’s hair!

Ava Ahead

Gorgeous.

Next it was time to meet OSCAR!!!  He was very chill – here’s the behind the scenes from Facebook LIVE as we got set up for some of those shots!

And here’s our girl with her guy!!!

Ava Ahead

STUNNING.  LIKE…..STUNNING.

Here’s a little more of the behind the scenes fun as we switched up some outfits and explored the grounds this time from Instagram LIVE:

So another thing we love about Ava is her “rocker chick” vibe when she breaks out Doors or Stones gear like she did this day… combine that with a nearby horse trailer and you’ve got super cool…

Ava Ahead

Now for the coup de grace!  Ally shooting up towards the sky, a little off-camera flash with Ava leaning over her…. and, well – look:

Ava Ahead

There are a couple of these we just simply couldn’t choose between for the blog so here’s one more…

Ava Ahead

WOW.  We are SO in love with these!

So now you know.  Ava is ahead of her time indeed – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Eliza Supplies A Whole Bunch Of Adorable On Her Senior Session!

The title of this post makes us smile as does this senior!  Eliza supplies a whole bunch of adorable and fun too!  Any senior who brings a bunch of balloons to her session has the right attitude in our book!  This also wasn’t the first time Eliza had been in front of Ally’s camera since she joined us for older sis Anabel’s senior sesh a few years ago and time has definitely flown!  Anabel actually met us on site for a few pics to return the favor this time around and overall we had another great day with them and their delightful mom Cindy!
 

Eliza Supplies-A!

We started in the studio and Eliza is a fan of the color purple so we started with the purple backdrop and the black couch – a pretty cool combo!
 
Eliza supplies
So cute – and the dress works great with a bit of black and purple in it!
 
We have some fun behind the scenes from this part of the session first on the replay from Facebook Live:
 

At this point we headed out on location in Birmingham where we wanted to get some natural pics and some city textures, and we had a perfect day:
 
Eliza supplies
Adorable!
 
The balloons could have used a little more helium (which we all had some good laughs about) but that didn’t stop us – we still got our photo!
 
Eliza supplies
 

Next we headed to downtown Birmingham where we have some more behind the scenes from the Instagram LIVE:

And we’ll leave you with this cute one of Eliza with a bandana in her hair on the brick – love this!
 
Eliza supplies
As you can see, Eliza supplies a whole lot of adorable…
 
And there you have it!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

We Were Jacked For Jesse and His Senior Picture Session!

We get excited – jacked if you will – for senior sessions.  They are so much fun for us, and for Jesse we knew we’d have a good time because we’ve known this kid since before he was born!  We have a long history of friendship with his parents that goes back about 27 years for Doug before there was even a “Doug & Ally”.  We were the very first ones to see Noah & Ellen in Ann Arbor after Noah popped the question and Jesse and our Tony have been buddies just about since birth.  While we’re at it Noah and Ellen designed this very website you’re reading this blog post on – check out EPK Design!  Meanwhile Jesse has appeared on this blog before for family pics and for his bar mitzvah too!  Jesse is just a great kid – always has been, and he had his distinctive curly red hair grown out nice and long for his session!
 

Jacked For Jesse

We started outside and we lucked out – there were storms throughout the night but by morning they passed!
 
Jacked
What a great pic!  Good looking dude.
 
We went for texture too with a couple of walls…..and a couple of laughs:
 
Jacked
 
Good times!  We also have some fun behind the scenes action first from Facebook Live:
 

And one more from on location:

Jacked
 
At this point we headed back to the studio for his yearbook photo and a few additional formal pics, and we have some behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram LIVE:
 

And we’ll leave you with this one:
 
Jacked
What a stud!
 
You can see why we were jacked for Jesse – we knew it would be a great time and it was!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our morning with him!

Rachel Represents Raiders In Style On Her Senior Picture Session!

Rachel is a Raider – a North Farmington Raider like us, so Rachel Represents Raiders seemed to just write itself.  But – it’s about more than that, because she embodies what we would hope a senior would represent from our alma mater!  She is adorable – outgoing, smart and sweet – a talented dancer to boot and we had a blast with her and her mom Susan on her senior session!
 

Rachel Represents Raiders

With Rachel we had a solid plan of both studio and location work and we’ll start indoors on the white backdrop:
 
Rachel Represents Raiders
LOVE!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes from Facebook Live when we were doing the black and blowy setup:
 

And one more from the studio on the metal!

Rachel Represents Raiders

So cool – every time we use the metal we think “we should use the metal more”!

At this point we headed to Birmingham where we had a perfect day!

Rachel Represents Raiders

Definitely one of our faves from the session…

We also have more behind the scenes including the “Susan Takeover” when Rachel’s mom guest hosted the livestream on Instagram!  She killed it!!!  Take a look:

And we’ll leave you with this last one:
Rachel Represents Raiders
Adorable!
 
And there you have it!  Rachel represented Raiders in style indeed – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!
