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!

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!

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!

All About Ava And Her Amazing Senior Spokesmodel Session!

Ava is a character and we are huge fans.  We had so much fun with her, and her photos?  OMG.  She’s a pro – tons of style and sass and the day we spent with her and her mom Stacie whom we went to high school with was one we won’t soon forget!  A great time in Detroit and we can’t wait to do it again on her senior session.  We are pleased to have her representing our studio at Bloomfield Hills High School for the class of 2020!  Let’s get to the photos…

All About Ava

Our plan was to go to Belle Isle first and this was where the adventure started… the ramp to get onto I-75 south from I-94 was closed so we ended up heading in the opposite direction which put us right by an industrial center where we have taken some images before so we figured while we were there we would get a few….

Ava

And wow.  Right off the bat Ava was in the zone – what a gorgeous image.

After a little time there we headed back down to our original destination and…..they were setting up for the Grand Prix.  Ugh!  No worries – we still got our skyline image that has become popular for Detroit sessions and we have a little fun behind the scenes from our livestream on Facebook:

And here is the result:
 
Ava
Detroit and Ava vs. Everybody!
 
Next we headed over to Eastern Market to get a few photos on a particular wall that we love (after a lunch break at Chili Mustard Onions – YUM).
 
Ava
As you can imagine we had a really tough time narrowing down photos from this session… Ava looked fantastic!
 

We also have more behind the scenes this time from the livestream we did on Instagram!

Last but not least after bouncing around the D a little more we made it back to the studio for a few photos on the black backdrop (most of our seniors do a combination of studio and location for their sessions) and we’ll leave you with this stunner
 
Ava
 
 
Great one to end on!  We were all about Ava that day indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

A Legendary Day With Loren In Detroit For Senior Pictures!

Wow what a day with Loren!  Loren was so adorable the first time she came to the studio – she had been following along with some of our sessions on Instagram and elsewhere on social media as many do and she was totally fired up for her turn!  She and her mom Lili had some great ideas for the session and it led us to some things we had never tried before!  We’ll get to that in a little bit, but suffice it to say (as you’re about to see) this was a legendary day with Loren for sure!  Dad Eugen and little bro David even hung out and jumped in for a couple photos at one point so it was a family affair and we had a lot of fun, but this blog post is about Loren, so let’s get to a few pics!

Legendary Day

We started on Belle Isle as we often do and got this image of our girl with the skyline in the background:

Legendary Day

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the day starting with the replay from the livestream on Instagram!

We stayed on Belle Isle for a bit and also got this pretty photo of Loren in the willow!

Legendary DayLove that one!

At this point we switched locations and headed over to the Belt where we captured a cool pic of Loren looking off to her future!  Hehe…

Legendary Day

The overalls with the Hamilton socks rock!

And now for the coup d’état!  It was getting towards evening and it was a little chilly – not quite carnival weather, and yet we had plans for the carousel on the riverwalk – add a perfect dress to match and a legendary photo is created!  We even made this one into a metal sample for the studio!  Truly a fairy tale photo – and first here’s the behind the scenes on Facebook Live!

And the result!

Legendary Day

Amazing!

Yes it was a legendary day that we won’t forget with Loren, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!

A Happy Hannah Happening – Spectacular Senior Pics in the D!

A happy Hannah happening was what we had in downtown Detroit on this senior session!  We go back to high school with Hannah’s mom Robyn so this was one of those surreal sessions for us and it was certainly one to remember!  Hannah’s dad Glenn came along as well and we had a blast.  As for Hannah we just have to say that she has this fun and infectious personality that totally draws you in – just a cool and nice girl who isn’t afraid to have a good laugh!  We loved working with her and she had an amazing session, so let’s get to the pics!

Happy Hannah Happening in the D

Hannah decided on Detroit so we spent all of our time there, and we started on Belle Isle where we got the cool skyline photo that we love!

Happy Hannah Happening

Okay she’s adorable.

We also have some fun behind the scenes for you first from the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast:

We grabbed a few more photos on Belle Isle too – first on the red bridge up close and personal with our girl:

Happy Hannah Happening

That backlight is kickin’!

And we also went back to the graffiti bridge – here’s some more behind the scenes from Instagram:

….and the result:

Happy Hannah Happening

Love it!!!

We made a location change to Eastern Market to finish up the day and found a few awesome murals – here’s one of them to leave you with:

Happy Hannah Happening

A happy Hannah happening indeed!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

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!

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!

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!

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!
