A Frameable Fun Fall Session With A Family Of Three!

We have been buried in seniors from the class of 2015 lately which we love, but a frameable fun fall session with a family of three was a nice change of pace especially at the height of fall colors!  What a fun couple with what Ally would refer to as a squishy yummy little boy named Josh.  Josh gave us great smiles and we had much fun!

We went to one of our go-to spots in a neighborhood close by and the conditions were just right!  There are trees and bridges and just a lot to work with there.  We started with the bridge:

How cute is the little man?  Cute enough that we moved on to working on some solo shots to give him the spotlight and Ally captured this sweet photo of Josh just being a happy little boy sitting in the leaves…

Next we looked to get a few more family shots under a tree filled with and surrounded by pretty yellow and orange leaves – it was a great spot which gave us some great results!

Love the interaction here of the three of them just being a family.  And we have a little of this on our fun behind the scenes vine of the morning!  You’ll see here that when we went back to the house afterwards to try to get a few more with the dogs that Ally got a little surprise…  haha!

As mentioned in the vine this part of the session with the dogs was a bit more challenging but we did get one last family shot on the deck that we’ll share here!

And there you have it!  Highlights from a Frameable fun fall session with a family of three that we hope you enjoyed!

Photographic Greatness With Garrett!

Photographic greatness with Garrett was the deal on this perfect sunny fall day.  This senior knows how to pose, how to dress and how to have a good time, and the results are just awesome.  We’ve known Garrett for a couple years ever since he ended up hanging out with us at our Team Frameable Faces tent at the West Bloomfield Relay For Life a couple years ago.  We have been talking a lot over the last several posts about the exploring we have done on quite a few sessions lately, and Garrett led us to an “unauthorized” trail in the park to a stream deep in the woods that we didn’t know existed.  So cool!

We’ll get to that spot in a minute, but first let’s start like we did with Garrett – in the studio for a formal shot against our metallic silver background.  This one turned out really really cool – like right out of a magazine…

Greatness With Garrett

Now we’ll turn our attention to our location photos!  As with many of the recent seniors the fall colors were in full effect for Garrett and we’ll have more sessions to show you yet with the colors going forward.  Take a look at this one…!

Greatness With Garrett

Fantastic.  Let’s take a quick look at our fun behind the scenes vine of the day, including Ally commanding Garrett to “be mean”, as well as Garrett sitting on a log over the hidden stream – he walked across on that log which made both Ally and I pretty darn nervous…!

This next photo just seemed to scream black and white so here it is… Very dramatic looking of Garrett here.

Greatness With Garrett

Last but not least Ally loves this next one because she loves when guys wear pink!

Greatness With Garrett

So there it is – this was a top notch session – photographic greatness with Garrett indeed. We hope you enjoyed these photos from our day with him!

Leah Returns With Plenty Of Looks And Laughs!

For this post we are pleased to present photos from one of our class of 2015 seniors who has been featured on our blog before as a spokesmodel.  We’ve had a great time with Leah and one of the reasons is she “gets” it when it comes to our studio.  She has from the first minute she started bopping in here to hang out with us a couple years ago, and she’s been known to just be here hanging out on any given day, even helping us by adding her two cents in client meetings about our approach and her experiences with us.  She is always flowing with ideas, and she’s also been known to crack up at the drop of a dime.  So when Leah returns for a photo session of her own we know there will be plenty of looks and plenty of laughs!

We already knew Leah would rock her session because she killed it on her spokesmodel shoot in a snowstorm which was one of our more memorable days.  This time around she wanted to wait for the fall colors, but before we head out on location let’s start with a studio photo:

Leah Returns

Leah had been talking about the red couch for a while so we spent some time on that set up – even getting her dogs into the mix, but here we focused on this close crop of just her.  Beautiful!  We would also like to give a little shout out to Shifra Raskin down the hall from our studio for such a great job on Leah’s makeup!

Now let’s get to the location photos…  first we started with the fountain in Birmingham which makes for a very pretty backdrop with a wall of white water…

Leah Returns

Here is our hilarious behind the scenes vine where the various “wildlife” had their say…  You can see a glimpse of the laughs I referred to earlier…

Now let’s focus on the nature shots.  First with a close up and some green…

And last but not least the beautiful fall colors!

So pretty!!!  Leah delivered again as we knew she would, and we hope you enjoyed these photos, looks and laughs from her session!

 

Melissa’s Senior Session Just Makes Us Smile!

Melissa’s senior session just makes us smile because she is such a sweetie, and when you have a senior who is just nice and fun to be around it’s particularly satisfying when the photos turn out so well!  We also grabbed a spot that we hadn’t thought about before – just a brick archway that we pass by all the time but on this day the red leaves of the tree next to it caught Ally’s eye – I think photographing Melissa just had Ally inspired.  Ha!  We’ll get to that in a bit…

Meanwhile we started out in the studio with the brown background which is an underrated studio color for seniors.  It works particularly well with Melissa’s skin tone – just a beautiful photo wouldn’t you say?

Makes Us Smile

She is so darn cute.  Her mom also came along for the shoot and she was great – we enjoyed our time together with both of them!  We headed out on location and started with a different view of our recently discovered meadow that we love.

Makes Us Smile

Just loving the sea of fall colors in that shot….  Michigan in the fall is so incredible!

Now here is our fun behind the scenes vine of the day…

…which leads us to the brick archway I mentioned before.  Sometimes you just have to open your eyes to see your world around you in a different way…

Makes Us Smile

Last but not least we relocated to a spot where this wrought iron fence has been good to us lately for this closely cropped photo of our beautiful senior.  It’s hard not to gush about this girl!

Makes Us Smile

So now you see why indeed Melissa’s senior session just makes us smile.  We hope it made you smile too!
