Alexandria Adorable – A Smushy Little Cutie at Two Months!

Alexandria Adorable just sums it up.  What a cute little smushy baby with a TON of personality at such a young age!  We don’t usually expect to get smiles like we did at 2 months but Alexandria is already ahead of her time, and her parents La Shawn and Aaron are just delightful.  We had a great time with them and Alexandria couldn’t have been easier to work with.  No crying, no meltdowns – a total pro at 2 months!

Alexandria Adorable

So let’s get to some highlights shall we?  We’ll start on the orange chair:

Alexandria Adorable

She’s SO CUTE!!!

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

At one point Alexandria decided to take a little snooze – like an angel….

Alexandria Adorable

La Shawn and Aaron got into the act a little as well for a few family portraits and we have some more behind the scenes of that with the raw video replay from the Instagram Live:

And here is a really nice one of the three of them…

Alexandria Adorable

Lots of love in that photo!

We’ll leave you with one more of Miss Alexandria being all pretty in pink:

And there you have it!  Alexandria Adorable indeed.  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with them!

Noah, His Grandmas and More Cowbell – What a Fun and Special Session!

It’s a blessing to have both of your grandmas and Noah brought them both to the studio for his 3 year old portraits!  Noah is a ball of energy and we had a lot of fun!  Noah’s mom Jen was here and she’s been here a bunch since one of her older daughters Emily has represented our studio this year for the high school senior class of 2018 – so we love these peeps!

Noah and the grandmas

So let’s get to a few of the highlights!  First with the grandmas!!!

Noah

So CUTE!

Noah

Awesome.

We also have some super fun behind the scenes action from Facebook Live – we got cut off in the middle but it’s still pretty great.

Now how about a couple of the big man himself…

Noah

Love this in black and white.

Oh – and almost forgot – like the title says, Noah decided that this photo session needed MORE COWBELL!!!  Don’t all sessions need a little cowbell?  Hehe…

Noah

Yes!!!  A fun and special session indeed!  We hope you enjoyed our time with Noah and his grandmas!

Enzo Is Back, He’s One, and He’s Pretty Awesome!

Man do we love one year olds.  They are so fun at that stage as their little personalities are developing and this dude – Enzo – has personality to burn!  Plus he’s a hunka chunka and we had a blast with him and his mommy Ashley for his one year photos!  He was here last with his sibs when he was 6 months old and this time around he had an awesome multi layered birthday cake with him.  So the stage was set….

Enzo is back

First Ashley had Enzo stylin’ before we got to the cake and we broke out the blue/grey backdrop for a few portraits – we’ll start with those!

Enzo

Okay how yummy is he?

We also have some fun behind the scenes with the fun Facebook Live we did – here’s the replay:

And one more on the blue in the basket… 

Enzo

Haha!  So cute!!!  How great is that bowtie?

Let him eat cake!

Now it was time to get to the cake!  And what a cake – check it out… you can feel the anticipation!  Lol…

Enzo

We’ll leave you with one more as Enzo was getting his feast on!

Enzo

Now that’s a happy kid.

And there you have it!  To be one and awesome – that’s Enzo!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with him!

Ellory Was Ready For Good Vibes And Her Modeling Closeup!

Ellory came to the studio this week with her mom Jodi for some good vibes, her modeling closeup and some fun!  We definitely got all three.  What a sharp and adorable girl she is and we really had a blast so let’s take a look at some highlights!

Ellory Was Ready For Good Vibes

We photographed the whole session on the black backdrop but with a few different styles and we’ll start with some Good Vibes right off the bat!

Ellory

The laughing photo is a fun one to set the stage – this girl couldn’t keep the SERIOUS pose for too long without just a little giggling. 

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


And now let’s change up a couple of styles!  We broke out the fan for some of that “black and blowy” glam!

Ellory

Ellory is such a rock star!

We also have some fun behind the scenes on this too but for whatever reason I’ve been struggling with the audio and covering the mic when we go live on Instagram.  No idea why….  we’ve been livestreaming on Periscope and other platforms for 3 years with no problem but for some reason we’re a little snake bitten on Instagram.  BUT – in this case it’s kind of funny…. if you watch at the 48 second mark I ask Ellory what she wants to do with her life and her reaction is priceless.  First I played around with her acting shocked that she didn’t know, and then I let her off the hook telling her I didn’t know until less than 10 years ago.  It’s pretty cute.

Let’s also give a shout out to Valoria at The Beauty Lounge for Ellory’s hair – that’s Valoria making an appearance in the livestream too.

Now let’s wrap it up with a couple more photos!  This next one is really nice – Ellory is wearing her mom’s dress here!

Ellory

And one more – a fun close up from above:

Ellory

Totes Adorbs!!!

And there you have it – you can see we had so much fun with this little whirlwind of cuteness and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!

We Love When Three Generations Get Together For Family Portraits!

Tricia and her hubby came in from Texas and brought in the whole crew for this session and it was a blast – a whole gaggle of little cousins running around and lots of laughter in the studio!  Gotta love when three generations get together for family portraits and we certainly love these results.  Let’s take a look:

Three Generations

It’s all about family and we’ll start with the whole family portrait on the blue / grey background…

Three Generations

Great crew!!!

We also had a little fun with some behind the scenes in the form of a Facebook Live broadcast – take a look!

And here we start to break it down into each of the families for more intimate portraits of each!

Three Generations

How cute are they?

Three Generations

Haha – awesome – hands full with little ones!

And now here is the coup de grace!  Love this collage that Ally put together of the cousins:

Three Generations

So precious!  A great one to end it on and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of the three generations that Tricia brought to the studio on this day!

Aubrey Is Back, She’s One and She Is Super Delicious!

Yes Aubrey is back!  She’s our event photographer Angela (AKA “Nikon Girl”)’s baby, she’s one and she is super delicious!!!  You may remember her newborn session from last year and the video birth story Ally created at the hospital when Aubrey was born.  Meanwhile she’s growing up and while at first we thought she was all Cam (her daddy), now we’re starting to see a lot of Angela in her too!

Aubrey Is Back

We had a lot planned for this session including the flower pot baby setup and a cake smash!  So let’s get to it:

Super Delicious

Yes!!!  We love flower pot babies!!!  SO cute.

Here is some behind the scenes of the flower pot scene from the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast!  So much fun…  

And while we’re working with the wooden floor and the pink background let’s look at one more this time out of the pot and into a tutu!

Super Delicious

How adorable is she?

Super Delicious

So which is more delicious – Aubrey or a cake?  We’re thinking Aubrey…

Super Delicious

Starting the smash…

Super Delicious

Loving the smash!!!

And there you have it!  Yep Aubrey is super delicious and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of her return to the studio!

Just About The Sweetest Sibling Session You Will See!

We had just about the sweetest sibling session here at the studio on the occasion of the youngest’s 6 month milestone and these three were so fun!!!  Mom Ashley has been here with hubby Chris and the kids before but this was Enzo’s first appearance with older sibs Lucca & Sylla together and there was definitely more magic this time around…

Sweetest Sibling Session

So this was a pretty straightforward approach with the kids on the brown backdrop and their outfits were amazing…  Let’s start with the three together:

Sweetest Sibling Session

How great are they?

We also have a little behind the scenes fun for you here with our Snapchat story from the session!  You’ll even see that Ashley jumped in for a couple shots!  Follow us on Snapchat for frequent snaps and stories from sessions and various other goings on!

Now let’s take a look at individual portraits of all three kids shall we?  First big brother…

Sweetest Sibling Session

This Was A Fun and Fabulous Frameable Family of 6!

Sometimes life happens – things get crazy, you’re raising kids and it’s the glorious chaos of life, right?  Heba is a perfect example of this with the story of this session – first let’s just say at the end of the day she has 4 amazing kids and just an overall fabulous Frameable family!  4 kids ranging from 15 to 3 – which we know ain’t always easy, but judging by the results we have to give it up to her and Vinny – they are pulling it off in style.  Meanwhile Heba stopped in here a year ago to plan a family session and then it didn’t happen – like the first sentence I typed above life happened!  We had almost forgotten about her – almost.  But when she popped back in with a huge friendly smile asking “remember me?” I absolutely did and we were thrilled that she came back!  Her little man was turning 3 and the timing was good for them to get this scheduled.  So without further adieu let’s take a look – we’re going to present these a little differently than we usually would because we LOVE the 4 close ups of the children which Heba will be displaying in her home along with the family portrait!

Fabulous Frameable Family!

Let’s start with the traditional family portrait – what a gorgeous crew.  The little guy and I bonded – we were giving each other “two thumbs up” to get ready for each shot and he was a total pro – and I gotta tell you, not all 3 year olds are the easiest to photograph, but we usually can get it done and with this little one there was no problem.

So here is the Fabulous Frameable Family:

Fabulous Frameable

….and here are the children in order from oldest to youngest with matching close crop black and white portraits!  Love these.

Fabulous Frameable

Fabulous Frameable

Fabulous Frameable

Fabulous Frameable

Stunning right?  We really enjoyed having this crew in the studio, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with them!

Shaista Brings Back The Whole Crew and They’re Growing UP!!!

We get excited when Shaista brings back the whole crew!  We started photographing her kids shortly after we opened our studio space here in the Orchard Mall and they are just an awesome family – great kids and much fun to have around.  The wrinkle this time was that Shaista brought her husband Shabbir to get the whole family in the photos!  There’s a little story here – we’ve known Shaista and the kids for years but we never met Shabbir before so the running joke was that he wasn’t real – that we didn’t believe he existed.  Haha!  Well we can now say he does indeed exist and he’s as delightful as we would have expected.  I joked with him that we thought he was a phantom and he replied “Hey I was out working hard for these guys!”  Now that’s a good guy.  So without further adieu let’s take a look at some sneak peeks of this fabulous session!

Shaista Brings Back The Whole Crew…

Let’s start with the whole fam in a portrait with traditional dress which is always a joy – such vibrant colors against the brown earth tones…  love this:

Shaista brings

What an awesome group!

We also have some video replays from the live broadcasts we did during the session for a little behind the scenes fun – first on YouTube Live which we just started doing some of – you can subscribe to our channel here!


  

Next let’s focus in on a photo of just the happy couple!

Shaista brings

They look fantastic!

We also have a little more behind the scenes fun this time from the Facebook Live broadcast we did:


They’re Growing UP!!!

Now let’s focus on the kids!  We have a couple of photos of the 4 of them being, well…..the 4 of them!  Haha!

First in the traditional clothing…

Shaista brings

And next in some casual gear…. love it!

Shaista brings

So fun!!!  You can tell they were having a blast – being kids but still really well behaved – love them!

And there you have it – when Shaista brings back the whole crew we have a ton of fun.  We hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks from their session!

Nelma and Her Fabulous Fam Represents Frameable Nation In Pensacola!

NELLLLLLLLLMAAAAAA!!!  Okay we need to explain.  We met Nelma through Periscope and we’ve known her for quite some time now.  We both used to host game shows on a network called “Play For Stuff”, were hanging out in the same circles in the Periscope community and we have consequently spent plenty of time in each other’s broadcasts.  Nelma actually named our living room in the studio “the parlor” and one of our couches is named for her too………..and she’s never actually set foot in our studio.  She lives in Pensacola, Florida with her husband Alfie and their adorable daughter Lydia.  That just speaks to the amazing madness that is Periscope, and we have no idea how this piece started but anytime Nelma jumps into one of our broadcasts she’s greeted with “NELLLLLLMAAAAA!!!” by the two of us in unison.

So eventually as we’ve documented here we got the idea to plan a road trip for Spring Break that would include photo sessions since we are asked quite often if we would travel to do them.  The Frameable Faces Spring Tour started to take shape and when we said we were coming south to Florida, Nelma said “sign me up”!  We were so excited to finally meet her and to photograph her family!  We met in downtown Pensacola on the back end of a drive all the way up the state from Del Ray just in time for great light and really nice conditions at Plaza Ferdinand VII in the center of town!

Nelma and Her Fabulous Fam…

Let’s start with a fun pic of the three of them…

Nelma

And how about one of just Nelma and Alfie?

NelmaThey’re awesome.  As delightful in person as we expected!

As usual we have some behind the scenes fun for you – we did a Periscope broadcast and here is the replay!  You can follow us and join in the fun at this link or you can just check it out from Twitter here.

Now let’s talk about sweet little Lydia!  She is 4 and she is such a cutie!

Nelma

So adorable!  And such a little character – we had a lot of fun with her.

Nelma

Love that one!

And that’s the one we’ll leave you with!  Let’s also give a little shout out to check out her online store Beach Baby Couture with custom letter blankets and all sorts of other custom bedding, quilts, clothing – you name it!  We saw her home shop where she makes all of these items – we were really impressed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with Nelma and thanks for reading!
