We Were Jacked For Jesse and His Senior Picture Session!

We get excited – jacked if you will – for senior sessions.  They are so much fun for us, and for Jesse we knew we’d have a good time because we’ve known this kid since before he was born!  We have a long history of friendship with his parents that goes back about 27 years for Doug before there was even a “Doug & Ally”.  We were the very first ones to see Noah & Ellen in Ann Arbor after Noah popped the question and Jesse and our Tony have been buddies just about since birth.  While we’re at it Noah and Ellen designed this very website you’re reading this blog post on – check out EPK Design!  Meanwhile Jesse has appeared on this blog before for family pics and for his bar mitzvah too!  Jesse is just a great kid – always has been, and he had his distinctive curly red hair grown out nice and long for his session!
 

Jacked For Jesse

We started outside and we lucked out – there were storms throughout the night but by morning they passed!
 
Jacked
What a great pic!  Good looking dude.
 
We went for texture too with a couple of walls…..and a couple of laughs:
 
Jacked
 
Good times!  We also have some fun behind the scenes action first from Facebook Live:
 

And one more from on location:

Jacked
 
At this point we headed back to the studio for his yearbook photo and a few additional formal pics, and we have some behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram LIVE:
 

And we’ll leave you with this one:
 
Jacked
What a stud!
 
You can see why we were jacked for Jesse – we knew it would be a great time and it was!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our morning with him!

Rachel Represents Raiders In Style On Her Senior Picture Session!

Rachel is a Raider – a North Farmington Raider like us, so Rachel Represents Raiders seemed to just write itself.  But – it’s about more than that, because she embodies what we would hope a senior would represent from our alma mater!  She is adorable – outgoing, smart and sweet – a talented dancer to boot and we had a blast with her and her mom Susan on her senior session!
 

Rachel Represents Raiders

With Rachel we had a solid plan of both studio and location work and we’ll start indoors on the white backdrop:
 
Rachel Represents Raiders
LOVE!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes from Facebook Live when we were doing the black and blowy setup:
 

And one more from the studio on the metal!

Rachel Represents Raiders

So cool – every time we use the metal we think “we should use the metal more”!

At this point we headed to Birmingham where we had a perfect day!

Rachel Represents Raiders

Definitely one of our faves from the session…

We also have more behind the scenes including the “Susan Takeover” when Rachel’s mom guest hosted the livestream on Instagram!  She killed it!!!  Take a look:

And we’ll leave you with this last one:
Rachel Represents Raiders
Adorable!
 
And there you have it!  Rachel represented Raiders in style indeed – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Sydney In The City! An Awesome Detroit Senior Session!

Sydney slayed in the city!  What a fabulous senior session in Detroit and the whole fam joined us down there – we had a lot of fun!  Her parents and her little sis – David, Risa and Gabrielle are a riot!  Sydney is a beautiful North Farmington Raider senior – inside and out from the class of 2020 and we are thrilled to present a few sneak peeks from our day with her!

Sydney In The City!

We started on Belle Isle in the morning and we had great weather conditions – let’s start at the fountain:

Sydney

Such a cool pic and Sydney looks gorgeous!

We also played around with the skyline shot down by the Detroit River and here’s a little behind the scenes fun with the fam from Facebook Live:

And here are a couple other spots we love like the red bridge:

Sydney

Photographing Jordan Is Our Jam – Her Senior Session Shows Why!

Photographing Jordan is our jam.  We’ve gotten to do it a couple times now starting with her spokesmodel session back in April and it’s been a blast!  She’s a total sweetheart and her parents are great too – Jessica and Doug both joined us for a perfect day in Birmingham for her senior session and we have highlights for you – they weren’t easy to pick….

Photographing Jordan is our Jam

This first photo is a new spot at Quarton Lake we hadn’t used before, so this pose on this rock will henceforth be known as “The Jordan”:  

Jam

She ROCKED it.

We also have some behind the scenes fun from the day starting with the replay from Facebook Live:

Here’s one more from Quarton Lake – just a beautiful close up of Jordan!

Jam

…and one more livestream – this time it’s the replay of the Instagram LIVE:

At this point we headed over to downtown Birmingham to get a few urban looks and these are just fantastic:

Jam

Adorable – catching her in a bit of a mid-giggle!

And we’ll leave you with this one which is one of our favorite looks:

Jam

Yeah….everything about this session was just wonderful!  Awesome results.

And there you have it – photographing Jordan is our jam indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Carli Conquers and Captivates With Cool Senior Pictures!

Carli is cool, and yes she conquered and captivated on this wonderful senior picture session!!!  Cool because she’s just adorable, smart and nice.  Conquers because she stepped out of her comfort zone taking pics amongst the wildlife (including a couple of muskrats lol), and captivates because she totally crushed it!  She looks great in these photos!  We had so much fun with her and her mom Jenny – a perfect day with lots of laughs!  Aside from the yearbook headshot we went completely on location and we are excited to share a few of these with you! 

Carli Conquers

Going in chronological order we started with a bench by the water and this one just looks so good to us in black and white so we’ll start there:

Carli Conquers

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the day first with the replay from Facebook Live!

We had a couple of outfit changes, a few furry friends who visited and startled Carli’s mom Jenny a little – we love her by the way – and a little waiting for the sun to hit a meadow just the way we wanted it!  Here’s a beautiful full length photo:

Carli Conquers

Love it!

Here’s more behind the scenes fun this time from our Instagram livestream:

We LOVE this one on the bridge…

Carli Conquers

Okay, she is stunning!

We’ll leave you with one more!

Carli Conquers

Beautiful!!!  Carli conquers and captivates is an appropriate way to describe these photos indeed, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Mad About Maddie – A Fab Class Of 2020 Senior Session!

Mad about Maddie is what we are!  We actually have been at least since her spokesmodel session back in April and so we were excited to get her in front of Ally’s camera again for her senior pictures!  We had great weather and we focused mainly on location for this day so we headed out with Maddie and her mom Lisa to make it happen!

Mad About Maddie

First we went to a private beach that they had access to:

Mad About Maddie

Okay she’s adorable.

From there we headed to a fave dock of ours for a few and we have some fun behind the scenes on this from Facebook Live!

…and one of the results!

Mad About Maddie

Love it.  And we’ll also give a shout out to Francie Fruitman on the fantastic makeup!

We bounced around West Bloomfield a little where we got this image with Maddie surrounded by natural beauty!

Mad About Maddie

Oh, and Maddie LOVES bumblebees…. ok not really.  Haha!  Some more behind the scenes on that…. from Instagram LIVE:

We’ll leave you with one more of Maddie just being super cute.

Mad About Maddie

And there you have it – we’re mad about Maddie – again!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

We Will Reach (No) Goals On This Senior Session With Jeremy.

No goals here.  Not on this session.  None.  Shutout of all goals.  Why?  Because Jeremy is a GOALIE!!!  You don’t score on Jeremy on this blog post – HE will do the scoring thank you very much.

Jeremy is a legacy here since we photographed his older bro Seth a couple years back and we were excited to have him and his awesome mom Tammy here for another round from this fam.  Jeremy definitely delivered and we did a couple of really unique things on this session!  We love the results and we have a few highlights for you here…

(No) Goals With Jeremy!

We started in the studio with the “GQ Goalie” look on the black background!  We’ve done similar photos with a basketball but not the suit with the equipment and the skates – how cool is this?

Goal

We’re big fans of the pink dress shirts on guys too – it’s a great look!

We actually played around with some fire too – here is the video of that with Jeremy in his Bloomfield Hills Blackhawks jersey from Instagram:

At this point we headed outdoors for some location photos:

Goals

Looking good – and we had a great day for it too!

Here’s a close up of our guy:

Goals

And the final set up was Jeremy with his 2016 Dodge Charger – nice ride!  Here’s the behind the scenes vid from that on Facebook:

And the result!

Goals

Sweeeeeeet.

And there you have it – Jeremy’s session was goals – but NONE that got past him… ha!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

What We Have With This Senior Session Is A Case Of Pure Kiana Nirvana!

Kiana Nirvana – it’s a state of being that you reach when you are having a blast with a certain St Johns, Michigan volleyball playing senior and her delightful mom Sonya, and we reached it!  They discovered us on Facebook when they saw a couple highlights from another volleyball player’s pics – Alivia – and they gave us a call!  St. Johns isn’t close, but Sonya actually spends some time down this way for business so they are familiar with the terrain so to speak… 

To minimize the extra trips we met over Facetime to plan out the session which was a lot of fun and we went with some studio volleyball fire and Quarton Lake for the location in Birmingham.  We were pleased to get perfect weather and the day was a memorable one!

Kiana Nirvana

We started indoors for the volleyball photos and here’s a highlight:

Kiana Nirvana

FIERCE!!!  Kiana has come a long way in her relatively short volleyball career and she is already committed to continue it at the college level at Northwood!

Here’s some fun behind the scenes action from Facebook – check it out!

At this point we headed outside to Quarton Lake in Birmingham…

Kiana Nirvana

Beautiful!!!

Kiana Nirvana

We have more behind the scenes from the location too – this time from when we went live on Instagram:

And we’ll leave you with one more image:

Kiana Nirvana

The dress, the bridge, the girl – just a gorgeous photo!

And there you have it – Kiana Nirvana indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Camryn Was In Command On Her Senior Picture Session!

Camryn was definitely in command on this very first senior session of the Class of 2020 season!  But let’s back up a sec… 

Camryn’s mom Rochelle has been my Facebook friend for a couple of years but we had never met in person!  We met through mutual connections and I did not realize her daughter was an upcoming senior at our alma mater – North Farmington!  So when she reached out to discuss senior pictures we were excited!  When you are as active as we are on Facebook sometimes you can make a connection online that becomes a connection offline!  I knew we would like Rochelle and by extension it was no shock that we liked Camryn!  Camryn is adorable and smart and nice, and she wants to be a pediatrician!  She’s got it together, and yes she was in command on her senior session!

Camryn In Command

We started in the studio and focused mainly on the red fabric backdrop and the black.  Starting with the black:

CamrynWow!  Okay she looks amazing, and now would be a good time to give a shout out to her makeup artist Tina Jones who did a fantastic job on Camryn!

We also have some fun behind the scenes first from the studio on Facebook:

Next we switched to the fiery red fabric backdrop for this full length photo:

Camryn

Camryn is so photogenic and so comfortable in front of the camera!  A delight for Ally to work with!

At this point it was time to head out on location.  It was brutally hot out – over 95 degrees but we were not going to be deterred!  Not to mention there were supposed to be thunderstorms but those held off as well as we were glued to the hourly forecast for the previous 24 hours and watched it shift thankfully in our favor!

We headed to Quarton Lake and got this gorgeous image:

Camryn

And of course we have a little more behind the scenes fun from the Instagram Live – the replay resides on our YouTube channel (make sure you’re subscribed)!

We’ll leave you with one more full length photo of our girl:

Camryn

What a great session!!!  Camryn was in command indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!
