Hanging With Jonah (and Jack) For Senior Pictures Is Our Jam!

Jonah is a cool kid – outgoing and sharp, and we love a senior who brings the pup!  It was funny because his older sis Eden was swooning over their dog Jack on Snapchat while we were photographing since she didn’t have Jack on her session!  Haha…. gotta love a little sibling rivalry!  Jonah’s mom Lisa joined us on the session and even his dad Ethan came by since he was responsible for getting Jack home, so it was a family affair and we had a great time!
 

Hanging with Jonah and Jack!

 
We started in the studio so let’s take a look at those first, starting with a formal look on the grey background:
 
Jonah
That’s a stylin’ man right there.
 
Now let’s bring JACK into the picture!!!
 
Jonah
How awesome is Jack?  Such a great smile!!! Lol…
 
At this point we headed out on location to get some photos at Quarton Lake and in downtown Birmingham and we have some behind the scenes at Quarton Lake from Facebook Live!
 
 

Jonah

 

Great shot on a PERFECT weather day for us, and at this point we headed over to downtown to get more – here’s the behind the scenes on that from Instagram:

And the result:

Jonah

So there you have it!  Photographing Jonah (and Jack) was our jam indeed – we had a great day and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!

We Were VIKTORIOUS With Viktor On His Senior Session!

VIKTORIOUS!!!  That’s how we all felt after our day – Viktor, his parents & Ally and me!  Such a cool class of 2020 senior session with plenty of stuff we did on a whim and it all worked out!  From boutiques and restaurants around Birmingham who were more than happy to let us come in and take pics like Churchill’s and Teacups & Toys, a Pet Boutique, to great weather and just generally exploring, it was a flawless outing!  Viktor is a cool dude too which we knew – we’ve photographed him with the whole family and he hung out on big brother Maksim’s session too – so we were looking forward to this one with mom Susie and dad Mike whom I go back with over 40 years!
 

VIKTORIOUS WITH VIKTOR…

 
We focused on location photos for Viktor in Birmingham so let’s get to the highlights:
 
Viktor
 
This one looks so cool in black and white – Viktor is the man!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes on this one first from the Instagram Livestream – check it out!
 

Let’s get to a few more:
 
Viktor
Such a cool spot with the ivy covered building!!!
 
Viktor
The marquee of the Birmingham Theater is a pretty cool backdrop too.  Viktor crushed it.
 
Last but not least, we asked the folks at Churchill’s if we could come in and shoot and they were more than accommodating!  It was around 11 AM so it was well before the lunch crowd and we were in and out pretty fast.  We have photographed in the West Bloomfield location as well just across the street from our studio and they are really nice there.  Great big humidor and selection of spirits and a wonderful menu in Birmingham – highly recommended.  Here’s the behind the scenes from Facebook Live:
 

…..and the result:
 
Viktor
SO cool right?
 
Yes a VIKTORIOUS day was had indeed, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!

Dean Was Dynamite On His Senior Picture Session!

Dean has been Dynamite a couple times in the last month or so….  He’s a North Farmington Raider so you may know that North is nationally famous for their fun wacky student ID cards and Dean was Napoleon Dynamite on his – it was perfection!  Meanwhile these were entirely different kinds of pics – senior pics!  Dean’s mom Joy came along to provide the crying – LOL.  We love Joy and we rib her a lot about how cute she is when she gets all emotional about her babies being all grown up!  Dean meanwhile is a great kid just like his older brother Mitchell who was here two years ago! 
 

Dean was Dynamite

We started out in the studio for a more dressy look – fantastic monochromatic get up for this dude:

Dynamite
Awesome – good looking dude!
 
We also headed out on location to get a few…
 
Dynamite
Looking good – and we have to say there’s no doubt that this guy had more fun than he expected.  You can see it in his smile – good times and lots of laughs!
 
Dynamite
Nice with the lake in the background!
 
We’ll leave you with one more:
 
Dynamite
 
Good times indeed – Dean was dynamite and we had a great time on this day.  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of his session!

We Were All In With Ari In Birmingham For Senior Pictures!

We’ve known Ari since he was in nursery school and he was our Tony’s “first friend” so it was pretty surreal to have him here at the studio as a grown up senior for his senior pictures!  We photographed his older brother and we love his mom Donna so we were excited for this one, and even his dad Gary came along on location to hang out!
 

All In With Ari

We focused on location photos so let’s start in downtown Birmingham:
 
Ari
Good lookin’ dude!
 
Of course we have some fun behind the scenes first from Facebook LIVE:
 

Let’s see a couple more…
 
Ari
Dope.
 
Ari
 
We also headed over to Quarton Lake to get a couple of pics in a natural setting and here’s some more behind the scenes this time with a nice vehicle they brought along on Instagram:
 

And we’ll leave you with just a nice simple natural pic of our guy!

Ari
 
And there you have it!  We were all in with Ari and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Jessica Justifies Admiration With Sib4Sib and Senior Pictures!

Jessica justifies admiration for sure – we’ve been aware of Jessica for a quite a while, highlighting her group Sib4Sib on our newsletter a while back.  Now in doing her senior pictures we’ve gotten to know her more, and she’s a really special kid with a mission.  Sib4Sib is described this way in the about section at Sib4Sib.org:

  • Sib4Sib was founded in November, 2016 by a teen named Jessica Goldberg.  Jessica’s brother struggles with mental health.  For over ten years, she had dealt with the anger, frustration, and resentment that accompanies living with someone who struggles with mental health.  After searching for an outlet for her frustrations to no avail, Jessica decided to take matters into her own hands.  As a teen, Jessica made it a point to create a group that would make other teens feel safe and comfortable to share their stories. 

Wow right?  This girl is making a difference in the world.  Meanwhile she is a North Farmington Raider like us, and she is a lot of fun – she had an epic take on Mona Lisa for her student ID which cracked us up and we were looking forward to her senior session, so let’s get to a few highlights!

Jessica Justifies Admiration…

A shout out here goes to Lisa North for Jessica’s makeup – Jessica brought her to the studio early to do the makeup here and so we made another connection – Lisa is a sweetheart and did a fantastic job on Jessica!

Let’s start in the studio with the black and blowy setup:

Jessica Justifies

Stunning!

We also have a little behind the scenes with Jessica talking about Sib4Sib a little bit from Facebook – take a look:

At this point we headed out on location to Birmingham and here are a few highlights:

Jessica Justifies

Adorable.

Jessica Justifies

….and we’ll leave you with this last one up close and personal!

Jessica Justifies

Love it!!! 

You can get an idea of why Jessica justifies admiration indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Kickin’ It With Kendall In Ann Arbor Gave Us A Kaleidoscope Of Feels!

Kendall gives us a kaleidoscope of feels which pretty much means that we really like her.  Okay it goes beyond that – we have history with her family going back over 30 years now and we detailed some of that in the blog post for her spokesmodel session back in June!  Kendall has been our first spokesmodel representing Ann Arbor Skyline High School and we really enjoy having her in front of Ally’s camera!!!  We actually broke this one up into two different days to fit it into our schedules – Kendall and Sarah wanted some studio pics but we also love any excuse to head up to Ann Arbor so we did both!  Let’s get to the highlights:

Kickin’ It With Kendall

The first day we were in the studio and here we have Kendall on the red Victorian couch on the black backdrop!

Kendall

Here’s the fun behind the scenes from that photo from our Facebook Livestream!

For the second day as mentioned before we made the trek up to Ann Arbor to hang with Kendall, her mom Sarah, and her little sis Harper!  We had a perfect day:

Kendall

Gorgeous – back at the law quad at U of M where Kendall will be attending and playing volleyball next year!

Meanwhile there was a wall that caught our eye on a recent trip to Ann Arbor and we decided to use it for a few photos – it looks GREAT and here’s the fun behind the scenes from Instagram:

And the result:

Kendall

Love that red!

We’ll leave you with one more from a park we never knew existed – so cool:

Kendall

And there you have it – Kendall gave us all the feels – a kaleidoscope of them if you will!  Ha!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day(s) with her!

A Livin’ The Dream With Alivia On An Awesome Senior Session!

Having opportunities to repeatedly photograph our faves makes for great days “on the job” so to speak.  It certainly doesn’t feel like work when you’ve got a sweetheart like Alivia back for another round with her delightful mom Rhonda!  Alivia is a spokesmodel for the class of 2020 representing Bloomfield Hills High School and her spokesmodel session rocked back in April, so we were excited for her senior session!
 

A Livin’ The Dream With Alivia…

We focused most of our energy on location starting with a lake backdrop…
 
A Livin
Gorgeous!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes action first from the livestream we did on Instagram!
 

And one of the results…

A Livin

At this point we did a little relocation for a few more scenes and the awesomeness continued – Alivia killed it!

A Livin
Here’s another behind the scenes vid this time from Facebook LIVE:
 

And we’ll leave you with one more with a little off camera flash – love this one…
 
A Livin
Fantastic.
 
And there you have it – you can see that we were a livin’ the dream on this day with Alivia and we hope you enjoyed the highlights from her session!

Matilda Waltzes In For Her Newborn – okay PUPPY – Photos!!!

I guess you could say Matilda waltzed into the studio.  Or pranced.  Or trotted.  Whatever she did she’s cute, and she was here with her mommy Krista for her newborn pictures!  With newborns it’s good if you can get them to sleep a little and Matilda was pretty chill – she did indeed nap a little and we got the shots we wanted in the basket with the pink tutu!  So let’s get to the highlights shall we?

Matilda Waltzes

Okay so she’s not actually waltzing in these photos but it’s still a fun title for the blog post, and here she is just chillin’… Clearly not having a “ruff” time while we “paws” to look at this fun photo…

Matilda Waltzes

She’s SO cute!!!

By the way on a somewhat related note when it comes to dogs we will be participating in the WDVD Radiothon to benefit the Detroit Dog Rescue here at the mall – come by and support the first no-kill shelter in Detroit!  More on that in the coming weeks:

Here’s a closeup of our girl:

Matilda Waltzes

At this point it was time for Matilda to close her eyes for a bit and we have some fun behind the scenes from Facebook Live:

And the results – sleeping beauty!

Matilda Waltzes

Pretty in pink!  And we’ll leave you with one more:

Matilda Waltzes

And there you have it!  Matilda waltzed into the studio and Krista waltzed out with some puppy lovable pics!  We hope you enjoy the highlights of our morning with them!

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!

Josie is a Josie – We’ll Explain Below With Her Senior Session Highlights!

Josie is an outgoing smiley cool chick.  She lights up a room and we were looking forward to her session, which rocked!  So sometimes when I write these I search for various stuff online for inspiration – things that match the senior or catch the vibe of the day.  In this case I started by simply Googling “Josie” – just curious what I’d find.  The first result was an (apparently bad) thriller movie that I hadn’t heard of.  BUT – the second result was PERFECT.  It was the definition of a “Josie” in the Urban Dictionary.  I didn’t know a “Josie” was a thing but check this out:
 

UrbanDictionary.com

Holy moly – Josie IS a Josie!!!!!  That is literally perfect.  Josie’s mom Gayle was out of town so she brought an entourage with her – fellow Frameable seniors Carli and Izzy and we had a blast.  We focused on location photos exclusively and we headed to Birmingham to get them…
 

Josie is a Josie…

Josie

Beautiful!!!  And a shout out here to Natalie on hair and Farah on makeup at Mandy Rose Studio for the outstanding job!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from our day first from the Facebook LIVE:

And here’s a stunning image with that outfit…

Josie

 

Love it!

One more from Quarton Lake before we headed on into downtown Birmingham, and how cool is a senior who wears a Ramones shirt to her session???

Josie

 

Hey, ho, let’s go……to downtown Birmingham…. lol!

Here’s a little more behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram:

And we’ll leave you with this one in the city….

Josie

 

So pretty!

And there you have it!  There’s no doubt Josie is indeed a Josie, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!
