A Fiery, Fall and Soccer Senior Session Jam With Josh!

Soccer senior sessions and Fall sessions are cool, and with Josh we got both!  Josh is a legacy and soccer runs strong in his family as we found out when his brother Jake came in a few years ago, and we love this family so we knew Josh would be a good dude – he was the only one we hadn’t met yet!

Soccer Senior

We started in the studio where Josh’s mom Shari joined us for the fun!  We broke out the fire for this first pic – check it out:

Soccer SeniorSo dope. 

We also have some fun behind the scenes action from that image from the Instagram Live broadcast we did:

At this point we headed out for some fall colors as they are really cool here in Michigan when the leaves start to turn… It was a pretty chilly day but as we (or at least I) say it’s ALL mental!  Lol…

Soccer Senior

Pure Michigan!  Josh looks great!

We have some more behind the scenes from that photo as well – this time from Facebook Live:

Let’s leave you with a couple more – first in a relaxed pose:

Soccer Senior

And one last photo… don’t try this one at home…hehe.

Soccer Senior

Awesome – fire, fall and a soccer senior – what could be better?  Josh is a great kid who is going to go far, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with him!

Alena Attains Autumn Awesomeness On Her Senior Session!

You may remember Alena from the beginning of the year in her spokesmodel session when she began to represent those North Farmington Raiders for our studio?  Well we upped the ante attaining Autumn Awesomeness for her senior session!  You remember back when it was Autumn right?  As of this zero-degree writing it seems so loooooong ago….  but I digress.  Let’s reminisce and revisit our day with Alena!

Alena Attains Autumn Awesomeness…

Alena’s mom Mindy is also a North Farmington Raider alum just like us and we’ve known her for many years so we love being with them and this day was no exception.  Since Alena’s spokesmodel session was all indoors during the winter we spent most of our energy this time on location in Birmingham and that’s where we’ll pick up the action.

Autumn Awesomeness

Yes!  Could her hair be any more perfect for a fall shoot?  We also need to give a shout out to Mandy Rose Studio for the always fantastic job on Alena’s hair and makeup (Michelle on hair and Mandy on makeup)!  Actually let’s even kick it up another notch with this one:

Autumn Awesomeness

Wow.  So pretty!  And let’s take a look at some of our fun behind the scenes action from the shoot, first with the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

Okay now let’s get to the fun urban stuff – industrial walls, streets and the like!  We headed over to another location for these and did another wardrobe change.

Autumn Awesomeness

Love it!  This has been one of our favorite walls for a long time and guess what – we’re not telling where it is!!!  Haha – we don’t own the wall so if you figure it out we won’t be mad lol…

Meanwhile we have some more behind the scenes fun with our YouTube Live replay – check it out and please hit the “subscribe” button to our channel while you’re there!

We will leave you with this last photo for now of Alena stopping traffic!  Haha!

Autumn Awesomeness

Wow right?  Alena slayed on this session and we attained Autumn Awesomeness indeed!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Photographing Jordyn On Her Senior Session Had Us Jumping For Joy!

Photographing Jordyn was a pure delight – you might even say being with Jordyn had us jumping for joy!  Well maybe not literally jumping but certainly figuratively because she is just such a sweetie and a pleasure to be around!  Her mom Rebecca joined us on a fine fall Michigan day and she’s a lot of fun too!  The results speak for themselves so let’s take a look:

Photographing Jordyn…

We started out in the studio on the white backdrop and we love Jordyn in the powder blue with the white chair!  Great one to start with…
 
Photographing JordynNext we moved to the black backdrop and we fired up the Facebook Live for some behind the scenes fun!  Take a look:
 

And here’s a shot on the black in a new outfit!

Photographing Jordyn

Love that!!!

At this point it was time to get outside on location and we made a stop over behind the West Bloomfield Library for a little pop of fall!  Photographing JordynShe looks so pretty!

At this point we headed over to our last stop over at Orchard Lake where we fired up the YouTube Live this time for a little more behind the scenes fun!  Take a look!

And we’ll leave you with one more photo of Jordyn chillin’ out on the dock:

Photographing Jordyn

And there you have it!  Photographing Jordyn had us jumping for joy and now you know why!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Lots Of Fun And Laughter On Lexi’s Lively Fall Senior Session!

Lexi had a lively fall senior session indeed – there was lots of fun and laughter because she’s just so funny!  She’s gorgeous, smart, nice and all that but she definitely made us laugh a lot.  You’ll see how much fun she is in the behind the scenes videos below.  Meanwhile she’s a legacy here since we photographed her older sister Helene several years back (before we were writing blog posts for each senior) and we were happy to have her parents Robyn & David back to the studio!

Lexi’s Lively Fall Senior Session!

Like her sister, Lexi waited until we had the pretty Pure Michigan fall colors and since we scheduled a morning session we went out on location to do those first – we’ll pick up the action there:

Lively Fall Senior

How amazing is that shot….?  She looks awesome surrounded by all the Pure Michigan fall leaves!

We also love this close up with the brick:

Lively Fall Senior

At this point we went over to nearby woods behind the West Bloomfield library and here is the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast behind the scenes – it would actually be great to have Lexi back to the studio to co-host some other livestreams – she’s hilarious!

….and here is the result:

Lively Fall Senior

Fantastic!

At this point we headed back to the studio for some photos where we went live again this time for some fun on YouTube:

…and one more from that red paper backdrop:

Lively Fall Senior

Gorgeous!

And there you have it!  A lively fall senior session with Lexi indeed – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Getting To Know Nadia On A Nice Fall Day In Michigan!

We love getting to know our seniors and on a nice fall day with those Pure Michigan colors outside we got to know Nadia a little better on her senior session!  She’s a total sweetheart – and what better day to photograph her than on her birthday!!!  Nadia’s mom Cherish joined us as well and we had a lot of fun with her too as you’ll see in a sec.  Meanwhile it was a little chilly that day (although that’s all mental as we like to remind our seniors – ha) but the conditions were still just fine for photos and we focused on location shots so let’s get to ’em:

Getting To Know Nadia

Know Nadia

Love that shot with the steps as the backdrop!

We also have some fun behind the scenes for you starting with the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

And let’s take a look at a couple more…

Know Nadia

Looking super cute in the hooded vest and you can see some hints of fall in the background as well as in this close up below…

Know Nadia

A nice pop of color with the scarf too!  We also have a little more behind the scenes this time from the Snapchat story from the day:

Fun with those snap filters!   Now we’ll leave you with one more:

Know Nadia

She looks amazing and nicely framed with some Pure Michigan fall leaves!

And there you have it – getting to know Nadia was wonderful and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Zak Is Back And In The Zone On His Senior Picture Session!

Zak is back and in the zone for senior pictures!  We say he’s back because he’s been here a couple times before – most recently on his spokesmodel session representing the class of 2018!  This time around with his mom Dena we went exclusively with on location photos and we got some great stuff…. 

Zak is back…

We started on Zak’s home golf course – home course for the Orchard Lake St. Mary’s golf team that is and with the fall colors coming in in the background we started with this one…

Zak Is Back

Fore!  Looking good!

We also have some behind the scenes for you here – this time we’re going to start with the Snap story from Snapchat which is a lot of fun!

While we were at the golf course Ally spied some steps she wanted to use and we got Zak in mid giggle here – he’s a good kid and Ally loves to mess with him.

Zak Is Back

Next we switched locations and brought out the 1970 Cuda!  So cool!

Zak Is Back

And here is some more behind the scenes from that shot from the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

And we’ll leave you with one more shot:

Zak Is Back

Zak is the man!

And there you have it!  Zak is back and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

In The Eden Of Orchard Lake For Senior Pictures….With Eden!

One of the definitions of an Eden is a place of pristine or abundant natural beauty, and Orchard Lake fits that description with beautiful Apple Island in the center.  It’s right up the road from the studio and a great backdrop for senior pictures!  So when an actual Eden came our way it seemed to make perfect sense to shoot there – by an “actual Eden” we mean our latest senior to highlight here on the blog – Eden!  Eden’s mom Lisa joined us and we had a great day starting in the studio so let’s begin there:

Eden

Love that – just simple on the white background!

We also have some fun behind the scenes as we usually do – first from the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:


 At this point we headed over to Orchard Lake and we also have some Pure Michigan fall color going on!

In the Eden Of Orchard Lake…

Eden

Beautiful – love Eden’s smile here and that’s Apple Island in the background with the pretty fall colors!  We also like the way the branch in the foreground frames her nicely…

Here’s another with more fall color:

Eden

So pretty!

Let’s take a look at some more behind the scenes action this time from the replay of our YouTube Live broadcast:

And one more from our day…

Eden

Love it – great one to finish with at our Eden with our Eden!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

We Are Loving Lacey And We Couldn’t Be More Proud!

This isn’t the first time I’ve written about our daughter Lacey on this blog.  She represented our studio this year as a senior spokesmodel and we already did one epic session with her in downtown Detroit.  This time around it’s her senior session and it’s a good thing I’m writing this post because if Ally tried she’d probably be an emotional mess.  It goes fast – really fast, and here we are – it’s been 17 and a half years that we’ve been loving Lacey and we couldn’t be more proud!

Loving Lacey…

So for this session we had a connection that gave us a green light to photograph at Cranbrook where we are not typically allowed to photograph so we took advantage of it.  It was a great day!  We even had our would-be-intern Brittney with us even though she’s leaving us to move to Colorado… (we’re so bummed) but not before she documented our day with Lacey in a unique way which we hope to share soon, so stay tuned…

Meanwhile we started in the studio to do a few shots so let’s look at those first on the grey paper background:

Loving Lacey

That’s our girl!

Of course we have some fun behind the scenes for you first from the replay of the Periscope live stream broadcast.  If you want to be a part of future broadcasts and haven’t downloaded the app yet you can do so and follow us at @FrameableFaces at this link, or if you prefer to just watch from twitter you can do that here.

Here’s one more from the studio of Lacey with a cute red hat!

Loving Lacey

At this point it was time to head out and get some fall colors on this nice crisp November day of which there were some great ones!

This is one of our faves…

Loving Lacey

Here’s another broadcast replay from the location – this time on Facebook Live!

And here we have one more from outside:

Loving Lacey

I’m biased but I do love that smile…  So yes we are loving Lacey and always will be.  Don’t be surprised if there is yet another session (or two) of this girl before her senior year is done.  Ha!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with our girl!

Pure Hannah, Pure Michigan Fall Colors, Pure Awesome!

Yes this was a purely great session – some Pure Michigan Fall colors, plenty of pure awesome and pure Hannah – the latest Frameable Class of 2017 senior!  Now we actually did a combination of photos in the studio which are great for any season as well as some on location and we found one perfect brilliant red and orange fall tree that we’ll get to in a bit…

Pure Hannah

Meanwhile Hannah is a sweetheart and a friend of our daughter Lacey so we knew this would be a great session and it certainly was!  Hannah’s mom Shari joined us and she and Ally have known each other forever so we had plenty of fun!  Let’s start in the studio on the black background…

Pure Hannah

Beautiful!

We also have some behind the scenes fun here – first with the replay of our live Periscope broadcast from the studio and you can join us and be a part of future broadcasts by downloading the app and following us at @FrameableFaces at this link, or you can just watch from Twitter here.

Moving on to our next studio setup for one more before we head outside:

Pure Hannah

Love that background with the ripped jeans!

Now it’s time to head outside!  First on the West Bloomfield Trail Network where we were able to find a really pretty red and orange tree – here’s the broadcast from this portion of the session this time from Facebook Live:

And here’s the result!

Pure Hannah

How great is that?  Love the maroon to go with the reds and oranges too!  We explored a little and went over to a nearby nature preserve as well where we did one more broadcast on Periscope:

And here is the final sneak peek for now – fittingly a photo of just pure Hannah!

Pure Hannah

And there you have it!  Pure Michigan, Pure Hannah, Pure Awesome!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!

Bruw-ing A Stellar Senior Session With Max-imum Results!

So of course this title is a play on words right?  Well it’s because this stellar senior session features Max and he’s been here in the studio before….with his coffee beans and his cold BRUW filter which is his very own company!  This enterprising young entrepreneur is getting it done and you can check out his website along with a few photos by US at www.bruw.net!

Stellar Senior Session…

But here we need to get to the task at hand and that’s the highlights from Max’s stellar senior session!  Max’s mom Susan accompanied us and even his dad Dave came by for a bit on location!  We started out in the studio so let’s begin there with a formal shot of our guy on the grey paper background:

Stellar Senior Session

Niiiiice!

We also have some behind the scenes fun for you first with the replay of our live Periscope broadcast in the studio.  If you want to be a part of our shows there you can download the app and tune in at @FrameableFaces at this link, and if you just want to watch from twitter you can do that here.

Now it’s time to head outside where…

Fall colors were a-BRUW-in’

Yes they were!  Plenty of great spots to shoot right in and around West Bloomfield and that’s just where we stayed!  The first shot features more brick than oranges or reds but it’s cool!  Just Max chillin’

Stellar Senior Session

The next photo is a bit unique in that we don’t think we’ve used this chair on location before – it’s a neat photo with some of that “Pure Michigan” color in the background!  Here’s the behind the scenes of the shot from Facebook Live

…and the result!

Stellar Senior Session

Pretty nice!

One more Periscope replay for good measure (we were having a lot of fun)….  lol!

And one last photo of Max – and just as the rain started to fall too…. good timing!

Stellar Senior Session

And there it is!  We BRUWed a stellar senior session with Max for sure, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!
