Yay and Yahoo For Yanni and Her Class Of 2020 Senior Pictures!!!

Yay doesn’t begin to cut it – we needed to add “yahoo” (we almost added a “yippee”) for Yanni and her senior pictures!  Yanni’s mom Inger and I (Doug) go back to college days at Michigan where we hung out in some of the same circles and I was always a fan of Inger with her fun signature “Heyyy mannn!!!” greeting.  We reconnected a few years back through Facebook and we’ve been in regular touch again since.  Love when that happens!  Meanwhile Inger was living most recently in Texas, so when she called to say she had moved back to Michigan with her hubby and that her daughter Yanni needed senior pictures I was thrilled!  Ally & Inger had never met before and I knew they would love each other.  I was right!

Yay and yahoo for Yanni

As for Yanni, I had followed her high school career through Inger’s posts which is one of those great things about Facebook – to see your old friends kid’s accomplishments is something that just didn’t happen as easily before social media.  Like the rest of the class of 2020 Yanni’s year was upended by the pandemic, so for the seniors we are photographing now who had planned on getting them done in the spring we feel a great honor and responsibility maybe more than usual to make this chapter of the senior year as normal and special as possible.  Nothing can dull our shine on our senior sessions, especially with a remarkable young lady like this one!  A talented artist, athletic, smart, beautiful inside and out and off to Columbia University In The City Of New York in the fall to study political science – this girl is going to change the world!

So let’s get to some highlights!

Yanni

Okay how adorable is she?  Love this idea with her books and the Columbia gear – one benefit of these senior sessions later in the year is our seniors know where they are going so we can have a little fun with some school spirit!

Yanni also brought her would-be-prom dress for a really cool idea to combine it with the graduation cap and stole!  Love it – we have some behind the scenes fun from this on our Facebook livestream!

And here is the cap toss!
 
Yanni
 At this point we headed out to Birmingham to get some photos on location and we had a perfect evening for it!
 
Yanni
Beautiful!  And that backlight….
 
Here’s another from Quarton Lake:
 
Yanni
Before we wrap it up we went into downtown Birmingham for a couple urban looks and here is the behind the scenes from that from Instagram…

What a perfect day for #seniorpictures with Yanni! 💕🙂 Love this girl!!! #ClassOf2020 #MetroDetroit #Photography #SeniorPortraits

And the result!
 
 
And there you have it!  Yay and yahoo for Yanni indeed!  What a joy to spend that time with them really.  A memorable day and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!

JuJu brought the GOOD Juju For Her Class of 2021 Spokesmodel Pics!

With another entry in the surreal moments category we present to you our last and FAR from least spokesmodel for the rising Class of 2021 seniors – JuJu!!!  Giulianna was last here with her siblings in December of 2010!  Here’s a photo from that session from a studio sample book we still have!
 
She was so adorable!  And now she’s back a full decade later as a beautiful and kind senior!  Wow… time sure flies and it’s so special for us to have the people who were with us in the early days of the studio here at the Orchard Mall back to represent us for senior pictures!  We’ve always been admirers of JuJu’s mom Barb – she is just good.  Such a sweetheart.   So when they agreed to spokesmodeling for us we were over the moon.  We knew JuJu would bring the juju!  The GOOD kind!!!
 

JuJu brings the juju…to Detroit!

We were also excited to get back down to Detroit for some photos.  We hadn’t been down there for a session since before the stay at home orders and we love being there.  Detroit sessions have been really popular the last several years (there’s a slight additional charge of $75 for the time and travel required for a Detroit session).  

We started on Belle Isle and even though the fountain wasn’t on we thought it made for a nice backdrop!

JuJu

LOVE!  We had a perfect day too…

Here’s another on Belle Isle:

JuJu

At this point we headed over to Eastern Market and we have some fun behind the scenes for you here from Facebook!

And the result:
 
JuJu
The next photo was a first for us at Scott Sprague’s studio in Detroit which we have access to as an option going forward for a fee – it’s unique, spacious and has some fantastic lighting!  Scott was really nice and invited us up to play around a little so we took him up on it.  Here are a couple from his studio:
 
JuJu
 
 
@frameablefaces@juju.somero slayed the game…💕 ##seniorpictures ##foryourpage ##metrodetroit ##classof2021 ##Fyp ##Detroit ##BloomfieldHillsHighSchool ##Photographer♬ original sound – frameablefaces

You can see in the TikTok above the natural lighting that comes through the windows that we used for this next one we’ll leave you with:

JuJu

And there you have it – JuJu with the good juju!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her and all the photos of our wonderful class of 2021 spokesmodel crew!  So excited to photograph this rising senior class!

We Were Juiced For Jaden and His Class of 2020 Senior Pictures!

The last time we photographed Jaden he was just a little kid here with his family (check out this old school blog post going back almost a decade), and now he’s grown up to be an awesome young man on his way to pursue his education at Florida A&M – he’s going to be a Rattler!  We are big fans of this family and we planned Jaden’s session for before the pandemic started, but we didn’t get it in before the stay at home orders went into effect.  So we were happy to be back together taking these pictures since we all had obviously been through a lot since then – these Class of 2020 seniors deserve the best and Jaden brought it!  We love this dude.  This was actually our first session back in the studio since early March so yeah – we were juiced for Jaden!

Juiced For Jaden

This session was all in studio and we’ll start with this black and white photo with the suit and snappy Burberry shirt.

Juiced

We also have some fun behind the scenes from Instagram first where Jaden broke out the Birmingham Groves Falcon letterjacket:

So excited to be back in the studio with this guy. We’re proud of him and the #ClassOf2020 as he heads to the next chapter at FAMU! 🐍☺️ #seniorpictures #MetroDetroit

A post shared by Doug & Ally Cohen (@frameablefaces) on

Here’s another with the Burberry look:

Juiced

We played around with some casual shots as well which you can see in the Facebook Live:

Jaden made it a little more formal as well with the tie for these next couple including this sweet closeup with the Florida A&M hat!

Juiced

What a stud!

Here’s another:

 Juiced

We’re going to throw in one more preview with the cap and gown to close this one out!

Now you see why we were juiced for Jaden!  Jaden’s parents Jahmal and Kimberly have plenty to be proud of with this guy, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Loving Lira As A Class Of 2021 Spokesmodel – A Long Time Coming!

Loving Lira is something we’ve been doing for a solid decade!  She was one of our favorites when we used to do dance photos for the dance studio across the hall and we’ve pretty much planned on having her be a spokesmodel someday all this time.  She’s a character this one – in the very best way – she runs track, plays in the band AND she’s a power lifter!!!  All with a larger than life personality and we are so happy to be photographing her now as a rising senior!

Loving Lira!

Let’s get to some highlights shall we?  First we went to one of our favorite spots in West Bloomfield where we found some pretty patches of purple!

Loving Lira

Love it – this pic is SO Lira!

Of course we have some behind the scenes fun as well – first from the Facebook Livestream:

And here’s one more with that outfit with a more thoughtful pose in a classic black and white:

Loving Lira

Time to change outfits and location – our seniors typically go with between 4-6 outfits in a session… and for these we headed to Birmingham and Quarton Lake which is a popular spot with our seniors!

Loving Lira

A little water, a little backlight – a lot of beauty…

One more behind the scenes video this time from Instagram!   

And we’ll leave you with this last one with the waterfall as the backdrop:

Loving Lira

And there you go! Loving Lira indeed for the class of 2021!  The new senior season has begun so get on our calendar ASAP!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with Lira!

Leah Leads Us Back To Action…and Pontiac For Spokesmodel Pics!

Just being able to write “Leah Leads Us Back To Action” is a joy for so many reasons!  For starters this was our first photo session in months after being home to flatten the curve of the pandemic, so just getting out and being back at it doing what we love was exhilarating.  But to be with Leah and her mom Emma made it even better because we’re friends and have been for many years.  So to have that interaction for the first time and to do it with people we already know and care about was sustenance for the soul!  Leah is representing the Bloomfield Hills Blackhawks for the class of 2021 and when you add in the fact that she brought her “A game” and SLAYED – well that’s just the icing on the cake….  Let’s get to some highlights!

Leah Leads Us Back To Action

We decided to go edgy and head to Pontiac, masks and all!  We like to photograph in Pontiac from time to time for a little urban vibe.

Leah Leads

Love. The. Shoes.  And the gorgeous girl wearing them.

We also have some fun behind the scenes action for you first from our Facebook Livestream:

Leah had a few outfit changes so next up we have a lyrical costume with pointe shoes – this next setup is amazing: 

Leah Leads

Just so cool – the costume matching the rail, Leah on pointe – just the whole thing…. wow.

Moving around downtown Pontiac we discovered a little spot we either hadn’t noticed before or was newly painted since last fall:

Leah Leads

Such a fun wall and Leah has that little smize going!  Here’s some more behind the scenes this time embedded straight from Instagram TV!

The final shots just happened impromptu as Leah jumped up on a barrel and flashed the peace sign – with the shades on – just a great way to sum up how we were feeling that day!  Love this girl.

Leah Leads

And there you have it!  Yep – Leah led us back to action which felt so good and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Ellie Elicits Extreme Enjoyment on Her Spokesmodel Session!

We had a wonderful time – extreme enjoyment you might say a few weeks ago with Ellie for her spokesmodel session for the class of 2021!  We are pleased to share these highlights during times of stress as we continue to prepare for the upcoming senior class, and Ellie is representing our studio for North Farmington High School – our alma mater! 
 
Meanwhile we go way back with Ellie’s family – Doug went to Michigan with Ellie’s mom Kari and she joined us for the session which we did mostly in the studio, but we did manage to get outside for a bit even though it was just slightly chilly…  hehe.  So let’s get to some highlights!
 

Extreme Enjoyment With Ellie

 
You’ll see for yourself how delightful Ellie is in the behind the scenes stuff, and we’ll get to the photo highlights in a bit, but first we have an added element to this session that we are playing with to start offering this summer…
 
Susan Adams is a fantastic local photographer whom we have admired for a few years now.  She specializes in sports and she has captured some great images of our son Tony as the photographer for Bloomfield Hills Schools.  We are looking to bring Susan and her talents on board for yes – sports (more on that in the future), but also for an idea we had for professional behind-the-scenes storytelling through photos of the day with our seniors!  As you know Doug documents plenty of behind the scenes fun during our sessions with livestreaming and more on Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and TikTok with his iPhone.  But senior photos are really an event for our peeps and this could be a great option for those who want to include it in their experience.  With Ellie, Susan met up with her while she was having her makeup done by Class of 2011 Frameable Faces Senior Gabby Zilberberg!  We love when things like this happen!  She also came over to the studio to grab a few photos as well, so we’ll start with Susan’s pics:
 

Getting started…

Great stuff right? 

Now let’s get to the sneak peeks from the session!

We started off with a little pink on pink.  Love this sweater on this background – just adorable!
 
Extreme Enjoyment
And here is some fun behind the scenes from Facebook – should bring you a smile or two!
 

From there we moved to a wooden backdrop that we love:
 
Extreme Enjoyment
Love that with the cute denim – perfect combo.
 
Next we got into our go-to black fabric…
 
Extreme Enjoyment
Gorgeous – her hair is awesome.
 
Oh and here’s a little TikTok silliness…
 
@frameablefacesBehind the scenes ##seniorpictures ##classof2021 ##metrodetroit @d1ellie Photographer, Director, SPOKESMODEL! Everybody Vogue! 😛♬ Vogue – Madonna

At this point it was time to get a few pics outdoors.  And actually it was toasty warm!  Okay maybe not, but we told Ellie to pretend it was…  hehe…
 
Here’s some behind the scenes from outside that we streamed on Instagram:
 

And we’ll leave you with this one photo from on location.  So pretty!!!
 
Extreme Enjoyment
And there you have it!  Extreme enjoyment with Ellie indeed!  We are looking forward to bringing you more photos of these awesome young peeps and we look towards the summer for senior pictures!
 
Meanwhile, looking for some fun?  A diversion?  Check out our podcast – all the links are below and we actually talked about Ellie’s session a bit on episode 8!

Adrianna Leads The Way For The Senior Class of 2021 Spokesmodels!

Adrianna has been a part of the Frameable Faces studio since it opened in the Orchard Mall over 11 years ago!  You may recognize her as the adorable little girl in the big frame by our theater in the back of the studio…

…and now she’s a beautiful young lady and the first of our class of 2021 senior spokesmodels!  She even gave us a little side by side in the Facebook livestream you’ll see below which was so much fun!  So this is an exciting moment for us to kickoff the new class and a surreal one for us since it’s Adrianna!  She’s a West Bloomfield Laker and we’re so happy to have her back!  We did a little reminiscing with her mom Lillian when we sat down to plan, and she had a fantastic spokesmodel session!  These give us a chance to try out some new lighting techniques (as well as backdrops and locations as we move through the rest of our crew over the next few months) and Ally is still playing with her new camera.  Plus we use these images in all of our upcoming marketing for the next senior class which will be coming through the studio in just 4 short months from now!

Adrianna Leads The Way

So let’s get to it:

We started out on the white paper backdrop and sometimes the white on white looks very cool – especially with the ripped jeans! 

White on White

 

Adrianna was on her game!!!

Next we moved to the black backdrop and here we went black on black.  People sometimes are surprised when we tell them they can wear the white on the white or the black on the black assuming they’ll blend in, but if your lighting is great it looks fantastic.  We also want to give a shoutout to Caroline at Mandy Rose Studio for Adrianna’s makeup!  They do an awesome job over there.

AdriannaWe also have our first behind the scenes clip here from Facebook Live and this is the one where Adrianna gives us the “double take flashback”!   So much fun…

Next we moved to the fire red fabric backdrop which we love:

Adrianna

We have a little more behind the scenes fun here this time from Instagram Live:

We’ll leave you with one more on the red:

Adrianna

Wow – we’d say we’re off to an amazing start with Adrianna leading the way.  More to come with the rest of the crew so keep on the lookout, and make sure you are subscribed to our newsletter and podcast!  All the links are below!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with Adrianna!

With Sam We Definitely Scored A Senior Hat Trick!

To be clear – the goal is not to score a hat trick ON Sam because he’s a goalie, but to use a hockey phrase that’s what Sam IS.  Smart, personable and athletic – we love this kid.  And why wouldn’t we?  We’ve known his parents for a longggggg time.  Ally and I were at North Farmington with both of them and Sam’s mom Missy and I go all the way back to kindergarten.  Sam’s dad Mike was like an older brother to me when we were teammates in 1985 when I was a sophomore on the varsity and Mike was a senior.  Missy and Mike did a great job with this young man and we had a great time with his senior pictures which we actually broke up into two different days.  So let’s get to the highlights!

Senior Hat Trick

Our first day was just a studio day and we went with the FIRE!!!

Senior Hat Trick

We have some fun behind the scenes from that pic from Facebook – take a look!

One week and a hairstyle later we headed to Birmingham for round 2…

It was a little chilly but that’s all mental anyway I always say (the seniors don’t always buy it hehe…).

Senior Hat Trick

For whatever reason our Instagram Live didn’t save, but we do have a little TikTok from Birmingham which we think is kind of cool!

Here’s a couple more to finish with:

Senior Hat Trick

Pretty cool fire escape shot – not a fire escape we usually use….

We’ll leave you with this one of our guy chillin’

And there you have it!  A senior hat trick with this guy indeed – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with him!

Some Thoughts On Senior Pictures And Why They Are So Special

We were sitting and talking with one of our high school seniors and her mom yesterday and it was a conversation I really enjoyed – one that got me thinking about our seniors and why their sessions are so special.

Special

We have had parents thank us before for “making it such a great experience” for their senior and “really capturing them” or “making them feel so special”.  Yes – we are really good at what we do.  Ally is an awesome photographer and she connects with people really well.

But here’s the thing, and I said this yesterday in what was a similar conversation to many we’ve had with comments like the ones above:

Special

Often the case is that we made someone’s daughter or son feel good NOT just because we said lots of things, complimented them and focused on them, but because the senior kicked butt.  At the end of the day the senior gets credit too.  It’s the senior who has to prep, dress, smile, pose – for hours!  It’s the senior who projects the confidence and the personality. 

Special

Sure Our Approach is Key…

Take the girl who was here yesterday with her mom to place their order.  Did we have something to do with her having such an amazing session?  Well sure we did.  We meet with each senior ahead of time to get to know them.  We want to get a sense of what their style is, their personality – and we empower them to be involved in planning their session.  We know what questions to ask, we know tons of great locations, we have a great studio with perfect lighting, fantastic backdrops and really cool vintage furniture.  We’ve been at this a long time and it’s our livelihood, but we want them to know this is about them.  So yes this approach breaks down barriers and paves the way for a better session.  It’s really important, and once we’ve done it the senior can own their part.

Special

…But it’s a Team Effort & The Seniors Make It Special

It’s truly a collaboration.  No different than a coach and an athlete, a conductor and a classical musician.  The girl who was here yesterday really rose to the occasion.  SHE was what made it special.  She looked great!  You could see the fun she was having and the confidence on her face in the photos.  Ally laughs at how I always say the senior is “killing it” or “slaying the game” haha…  But that’s not B.S. – it’s true!  And with yesterday’s senior everyone brought their A game, everyone feels like we really accomplished something great together, and now we’re friends.  We can’t imagine the tedium of doing it any other way for something that can and should be so special and our clients come here because that’s what they want. 

Special

So yes, we love what we do and we’re good at it, but it’s the team – us, the parents and the SENIORS that make senior pictures at Frameable Faces so special!

Easy Going With Eric Yields A Winning Fall Senior Session!

Easy going is definitely how we would describe Eric – just a low key and really nice guy.  Soft spoken but personable with a great mom Tamura, and even lil’ sis joined for his session on a bit of a chilly fall day in Birmingham for his class of 2020 senior pictures!  Eric already has some ideas for a career path mapped out and we enjoyed our day with him!

Easy Going Eric

We started in the studio for the yearbook photos and a couple other pics, like this one on one of our wood backdrops!

Easy Going

A fine young gentleman!

And here is the behind the scenes fun we have from the Facebook Live during the studio part of the session!

At this point we headed to Birmingham to get some photos outdoors!

Easy Going

That West Bloomfield Laker green is lookin’ good!

Easy Going

A very cool view of the waterfall as the backdrop for our guy which is usually obstructed earlier in the season.

We’ll leave you with one more on the bridge…

Easy Going

And there you have it!  Easy going with Eric indeed and some great highlights with this young man!  We hope you enjoyed them!
