Taking Over Detroit For Senior Pictures With The Jack Attack!

It’s time for the Jack Attack!!! As in Jack’s senior pics in Detroit where we had an epic day!  Jack is a legacy here which is always fun since we photographed his big sis Kylie too a couple years ago!  With Jack we hit a bunch of spots including some Pie-Sci Pizza which is becoming our go to – we love hanging in Detroit!  Jack’s mom Kelly joined as well, so let’s get to the highlights shall we?

Jack Attack in the D

We started out at Belle Isle and we used the fountain with a new angle that we haven’t used before for a really cool photo of Jack with the fountain way in the distance…

Jack Attack

Love this – pretty sure we’ll be doing this again – it will be known as “The Jack” shot.

We also have some behind the scenes first from the replay of our Instagram Live broadcast:

We also grabbed a photo of Jack on the red bridge that we really like there before moving on to get some murals…

Jack Attack

At this point we headed over to the Eastern Market to get some photos of Jack with some murals and we discovered this huge one of some of Jack’s favorite hip hop artists – we’re including it here as an extra for fun – Jack is small in the photo but the whole thing is pretty sweet – check it out:

Jack Attack

And here we have some behind the scenes this time from Facebook Live before we get to a couple more photos:

Fun right?  Okay two more photos:

Jack Attack

Lots of great spots to photograph in the D…

Jack Attack

And there you have it – the Detroit takeover with the Jack Attack!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

This Kid Kyle Is A Keeper and So Is His Senior Session in Detroit!

So yeah this kid Kyle here….. he’s a keeper and so is his senior session!  What a great kid!  We had a great day in Detroit with his parents Dawn and Mark and Mark even guest hosted a livestream which you’ll see below!  Kyle is a Bloomfield Hills Blackhawk and we’re excited to show you a few highlights from our day!

Kid Kyle Is A Keeper

We started out at Belle Isle to get a bunch of photos including the Detroit skyline shot.  We fired up the Facebook Live and Kyle’s dad Mark guest hosted the broadcast!  He did a fine job…

Fun!  And more importantly we got this killer photo of Kyle with Detroit in the background:

Kid Kyle

So cool!

We also used a few structures on the island including this new angle…

Kid Kyle

Very cool.  Kid Kyle was killin’ it!

At this point we headed back downtown to The Belt Alleyway to get a few more and we fired up the Instagram livestream:

…and here are a couple results:

Kid Kyle

Definitely one of our faves from the session and pretty sure it’s another new spot with this pose for us!

One more up close:

Kid Kyle

Awesome – good lookin’ dude!

And there you have it – Kid Kyle killed it – he’s a keeper for sure and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!

Maksim To The Maximum On A Mega Senior Session In Detroit!

Maksim has been in front of Ally’s camera before along with the whole fam, and we personally go back with his dad Mike a long way – for Doug about 42 years!  So we were excited for the opportunity to photograph Maks for his senior pictures and we had a mega gameplan to takeover Detroit to do it!  The whole fam came along – mom Sue and little bro Viktor!

Maksim To The Maximum

We spent the whole day on location in Detroit – first stop Belle Isle!

Maksim

Max is looking good with Detroit as the backdrop!  That’s the GM Headquarters AKA the Renaissance Center in the distance!

After some time on Belle Isle we headed over to Eastern Market to find a couple of murals and we also fired up some behind the scenes on Facebook Live – take a look!

And here’s one of the results:

Maksim

So cool!

Next stop back downtown to the Belt alleyway for a pic of Maksim and “MOM” hehe…

Maksim

At this point we had one more stop to make and that was West Riverfront Park where we had the Ambassador Bridge as a backdrop and here is the behind the scenes action from there that we streamed on Instagram:

Such a cool spot, BUT – we’re going to sign off with a photo from there of Maksim to the Maximum – up close and personal:

Maksim

Nailed it!

And there you have it – it was Maksim to the Maximum indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day which actually ended with pizza at Pie Sci – YUM!  What an awesome time we had all around and the results prove it!

Olivia’s Epic Detroit Senior Session Makes Us Want To Shout OliviYEAH!

Olivia’s senior session was indeed a special one – an epic day in the D – so much so it makes us want to shout OliviYEAH!!!!!  We had a blast with her and her mom Amy.  We’ve actually known them for years and so these sessions can get very surreal when we’ve known our senior for so long – in this case with a senior Ally actually photographed when Olivia was only 18 months old!  We covered a lot of ground and we hope you enjoy these highlights!  They’re pretty dope (right Olivia?).

OliviYEAH!!!

We started off in the studio for a few photos before heading downtown and we did a little of our “black and blowy” – the black backdrop with the fan blowing on Olivia’s hair:

OliviYEAHQuite awesome with the heightened dramatic look of the black and white!  Timeless…

At this point we headed downtown for some adventure – and we lucked out because the forecast hadn’t been looking so great for our day as recent as 24-48 hours prior.  But we ended up with a fab day…  First stop, Belle Isle

OliviYEAH

Love that photo at the fountain!!!  Olivia looks adorable and we have some fun behind the scenes as well, first with the raw footage from the Instagram Live replay:

Next we headed over to the Belt alleyway downtown for a few photos including this one:

OliviYEAH

Just love it!!!  And here’s a little more behind the scenes fun this time from Facebook Live:

We made a few more stops around town including Eastern Market where we got this awesome close up of Olivia just being Olivia with a big beautiful smile!

OliviYEAH

 

And there you have it!  Actually since this session was so epic we had to include the Snapchat story which has a few fun moments – enjoy!

We hope you liked these highlights and now you see why they have us saying “OliviYEAH”!!!!

A Spectacular Detroit Spokesmodel Session Takeover With Kaitlyn!

When we asked our son Tony who is a junior at Bloomfield Hills High School who did he think would be a perfect spokesmodel at his school – a girl who is nice, social, well liked, smart and fun with a little extra online influence perhaps, the first name he spoke was Kaitlyn.  He was spot on!  This girl is amazing.  Sharp, sweet and with an infectious laugh like no one’s business, she is perfect!  And her spokesmodel session was perfect too!  It wasn’t easy – while the light was great the wind was not.  It was windy as all get out down in the D which can pose a challenge for a girl with long hair, and it wasn’t exactly warm either, but Kaitlyn still rocked it and produced some of the images that we know will prove to live on as Frameable iconic photos.  So let’s get to it!

Detroit Takeover With Kaitlyn

Kaitlyn’s mom Sara is a delight as well and she came with us down to Detroit where we started off on Belle Isle as we frequently do when we head down there.  The first photo we’re sharing here is the best Detroit Skyline photo we’ve taken and all it took was recognizing that we needed a different vantage point than we’ve used in the past!  We couldn’t be happier with how this looks…

Kaitlyn

Gorgeous Girl!

Now we did a livestream on Instagram but were unable to record it – however we think Kaitlyn’s Snapchat story was just as good so this time we’ll start with that for some of our fun behind the scenes…

An outfit change and here we are with another closer up with our girl…

Kaitlyn

At this point we headed into downtown to the Belt Alley and got this awesome photo with these vibrant colors!

Kaitlyn

Here we have some more behind the scenes fun with our Facebook Live Video replay from the Belt – as you can see Tony actually came along with us on Kaitlyn’s session and they took a few photos together which will surface soon…..  🙂

At this point we made one more location change, heading over to some of the more ratchet areas of the Eastern Market for a little urban decay which makes for great photos!  We’ll leave you with this one…

Kaitlyn

Love.

And there you have it – a spectacular spokesmodel Detroit takeover with Kaitlyn!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with her and we cannot wait to do it again for her senior pictures soon!!!

Sarah’s Stunning Senior Session In And Around Detroit!

Senior sessions in and around Detroit always get us excited – there’s just such a buzz around the city and so much to photograph!  It’s even better when we have a senior who is down for some fun with personality, style, and the whole fam!  Yep Sarah’s parents and older sister came along and we all had a great time!  Sarah is a sweetheart and we are pleased to present the highlights of our day with her!

Sarah Around Detroit!

We started on Belle Isle which is how we typically roll – it’s a great location with all kinds of spots to discover – we’ll pick up the action there:

Around Detroit

Love that, and love the aesthetically pleasing match of Sarah’s top to the brick around her!

We also have some fun behind the scenes for you as we usually do – first with the replay of the YouTube Live broadcast at Belle Isle:

Here’s a photo now of Sarah over by the conservatory where we found plenty of flowers to play with – and why not with Sarah’s flowery dress!

Around Detroit

At this point we left the island to head over to The Belt where there are fun murals to play with, and we captured this fun photo:

Around Detroit

So cool with all the colors, and here is the behind the scenes this time from the Facebook Live broadcast replay!

Back to the studio…

At this point it was time to get back to the studio for our signature “black and blowy” setup and we’ll leave you with one of those:

Around Detroit

Um……stunning!!!

And there you have it!  A stunning session with Sarah in and around Detroit and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!

Kristen Is Our First Falcon And She Represented In Style!

It’s pretty hard to believe that after basically 9 years of photographing seniors that we never photographed a Farmington Falcon!  So finally……enter Kristen!  Kristen came to us as a cousin of some former seniors of ours and we were pretty excited to keep the chain going and get some Falcon love on our blog!  Kristen was a perfect first Falcon too, so let’s get to it!

First Falcon…

Kristen had a little entourage for her session here at the studio and her lovely mom Jordon met us downtown for the location shoot at Eastern Market as well – much fun!  After a quick few shots in the studio we stopped at a park in Farmington before we headed downtown and that’s where we’ll pick up the action:

First Falcon

Nice!!!

We also have some behind the scenes fun as usual from there in a Facebook Live replay:

At this point we headed downtown and we were actually a little nervous because it rained on the way down – it was NOT supposed to!  But we lucked out – the weather held once we got down there and we were able to get some great shots.  Not to mention an overcast sky can really work to your advantage anyway because the light is nice and diffused.

First Falcon

Love that…

Here’s another:

First FalconThe color is so vibrant and with the flowers on Kristen’s shirt it ties in nicely!

Time for a little more behind the scenes fun this time from our YouTube Live broadcast replay!

And we’ll leave you with one more photo…

First Falcon

And there you have it!  Our First Falcon was a winner and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

A Dazzling Day In Detroit With Dani For Her Senior Pictures!

We gushed about Dani plenty when we blogged about her spokesmodel session and after knowing her for about 6 months as she’s represented the studio for the class of 2018 we can say with certainty it was all justified.  We LOVE this girl and we definitely had a dazzling day with her in Detroit!  Her mom Diana came along for the fun and as you’ll see it was a session to remember.

Dazzling Day With Dani

Many of the highlights of this session ended up being in The Belt which we’ll get to, but we started out on Belle Isle and captured this stunner:

Dazzling Day

Wow – dazzling right?  I also have to say that I’ve been playing around with the new Snapchat filters on my iPhone for some of the behind the scenes stuff we put on our Snapchat stories and I think this one of Ally capturing the photo of Dani above is worth including here – like a cool little painting…

Meanwhile we have the YouTube live broadcast replay from Belle Isle as well for you here:

Now let’s head over to The Belt in downtown Detroit where we captured some real winners!

Dazzling Day

Love it – and here is the behind the scenes Facebook Live broadcast replay that goes with that shot:

Her outfit seemed to be just perfect for the colors there too….

Dazzling Day

We also went to an art gallery there that rotates installations of different mediums and we’ve been lucky enough to be there when they invited us in to take photos.  That’s where this last one was captured:

Dazzling Day

So cool!  And there you have it – a dazzling day in Detroit with Dani indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights!

A Perfect Day In Detroit Photographing Jordyn Is Our Jam!

We’ve had a ball photographing Jordyn while she’s been representing our studio as a spokesmodel for the class of 2018, and a perfect day in Detroit photographing Jordyn is definitely our jam.  As was the case with Jordyn’s spokesmodel session this was a family affair with mom Stacy, dad Eric, and even older sister Sydney met up with us for part of the day!  The game plan here other than the yearbook headshot at the studio was to explore Detroit and explore Detroit we did!

In Detroit Photographing Jordyn…

We started out at Belle Isle which is where we spent a good deal of time.  The more we shoot there the more great spots we find.  The first photo we’ll highlight is of Jordyn at the James Scott Memorial Fountain:

Detroit Photographing Jordyn

Great spot, great backlight, great senior!  As I said we roamed around the island and even stopped at the beach for a few yoga poses as you’ll see in this fun behind the scenes replay of our Facebook Live video we did!

Here’s another photo with the unique aesthetic of looking through a natural window at our girl…

Detroit Photographing Jordyn

So cool and Jordyn looks amazing!

To Eastern Market…

At this point we headed over to the Eastern Market area for some murals to play with and some grit and we found plenty of both!  First the mural:

Detroit Photographing Jordyn

Knowing where your light is and how to use it is key…. love the backlight on Jordyn’s hair once again!

We also have some more fun behind the scenes here as we headed into one of our fave empty buildings – this time from the replay of our YouTube Live video:


And the result with the grit:  

Detroit Photographing JordynAwesome shot to finish with!  Yes being in Detroit photographing Jordyn is definitely our jam and you can see why!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Capturing Cara With Some Completely Cool Shots In Detroit!

Capturing Cara has become plenty fun for us here – she is a current spokesmodel for the class of 2018 so you may have seen her here before on her spokesmodel session, and she rocked her return!  Cara’s brother Ben was a Frameable senior as well and parents Gina and Kenny round out a great family!  Gina came on the session with us and we knew we’d be in for a fun time as long as the weather held up – for a while there the forecast wasn’t looking good but we lucked out!  We headed down to the D and started out on Belle Isle…

Capturing Cara!

Here’s a spectacular shot of Cara with the Detroit River and the Renaissance Center in the background!

Capturing Cara

 

There are so many amazing spots on Belle Isle – here’s a little behind the scenes fun from our YouTube Live broadcast there!

…and one more shot before we focus on the Eastern Market area….

Capturing Cara

LOVE this with the yellow and black with Cara being framed by some yellow too!

At this point we headed over to the Eastern Market and Dequindre Cut to take advantage of the many murals and locations to work with there.  Let’s start with Cara with a mural backdrop:

Capturing Cara

Loving it…

Let’s also see some more behind the scenes fun from our Facebook Live broadcast while we were down there!

And one more from this doorway we found – Cara was in the zone at this point – capturing Cara was a breeze!

Capturing Cara

A great day to be sure and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day capturing Cara!
