Conner Crushes It On His Spokesmodel Sesh for the Class of ’25!

Conner crushes it in front of Ally’s camera – he’s done it before….  And we’re happy to have him wrap up the high school senior spokesmodel sessions for the class of 2025 representing the Novi Wildcats!!!  Conner’s mom Karan joined us for some time at the studio and on location so let’s get to a few highlights!
 

Conner Crushes It

We started indoors with a little FIRE for this football stud – we love sports portraits of all sorts:

At this point we headed outside on this beautiful day and it’s pretty typical for our seniors to do some portraits both in the studio and on location.

Spokesmodel Pics With Grown Up Gabe From Our Window!

Spokesmodel season rolls on now with the dudes – starting with grown up Gabe!!!  Gabe is the famous crying baby in the window of our studio that makes everyone smile when they walk by, and now he’s going to be a rising high school senior!  Gabe is our nephew so we’re pretty biased towards this kid, and yes, we like him.  So let’s get to a few spokesmodel pics for the class of 2025 representing the Berkley Bears!
 

Grown Up Gabe!

Looking good Gabey!  With a new lighting setup for us no less…

Baila Is BAE-LA! Spokesmodeling In The Studio for 2025!

We are so happy to have Baila on our team!!!  She just fit right in – personality to burn.  And she’s just nice.  And fun. And athletic, and smart and all around adorable, and we had a lot of fun with some new setups in the studio for the upcoming senior class of 2025!  We’ve known Baila’s dad Steve for some time and once we sat down with them to strategize we knew this was going to be a blast.  Let’s get to some highlights shall we?

Baila is BAE

 And by the way we don’t care if BAE is so 2018 – we couldn’t resist lol…

Baila is BAE

Love that full length with the black and white split background – that’s a new one here!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from Facebook where we find out what Baila’s favorite ice cream flavor is (that’s a pretty important topic we usually cover in these).  Haha!

Next we went with the black backdrop – these always look great and Baila crushed it.

Baila is BAE

Gorgeous!  Baila is very comfortable in front of the camera but no senior should ever feel intimidated by the camera – Ally can help – that’s what we’re great at!

Time for another outfit change and that’s also a must – our seniors can change outfits for different looks during their 3 hour sessions as often as they like!

Baila is BAE

Pretty in pink!  Let’s see some more behind the scenes from that one on Instagram:

And here’s one more with a new trick we learned at Imaging USA in Louisville…

Baila is BAE

So cool!  A great one to end on…

We can’t wait to get Baila in front of Ally’s camera again for her full senior session and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with her!  Baila is BAE indeed!

Spokesmodeling With Sophie in The Sity (Okay fine the City)!

If you’ve followed this blog long enough you know we are very alliterative around here…  The “triple s” title for this one was too hard to pass up with our Raider Representative Sophie!!!  North Farmington Raiders that is which WE are as well, and we are heads over heels for this adorable ball of energy and aspiring tattoo artist from the upcoming senior class of 2025!  We’ve actually known Sophie for most of her life so her mom Carrie gave her to us for the day and what a day!  We hung out, laughed a ton, ate, and oh – we took some photos too.  Some AMAZING photos.  We’ve got a lot to look forward to for this upcoming class if our spokesmodel crew is any indicator so far.  Let’s get to the pics!

Sophie In The Sity

We started out at Eastern Market which was definitely bustling on this Saturday morning…

Sophie In The Sity

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!!!!!

And we have some fun behind the scenes as well from the session which is all part of the fun – this one is from Instagram:

Here’s another one close by:

Sophie In The Sity

And more behind the scenes this time from Facebook!

To be clear we go into every senior session with a strategy – we have a consultation with our seniors before every session, and while our spokesmodel sessions tend to be our time to experiment with new locations and techniques we don’t always know when we’ll come across an open suitcase in a vintage store that our fun-sized senior will fit in so perfectly!  Hehe…. this photo is everything. 

Sophie In The Sity

How awesome is that?

And we’ll leave you with this one – a gorgeous dress at a gorgeous spot.  As you can see it’s typical for our seniors to change outfits multiple times for different looks in our sessions.  They can change as many times as they like!

Sophie In The Sity

Wow.  Breathtaking!!!

We cannot WAIT to get this girl in front of Ally’s camera again along with the rest of the class of 2025 Frameable SENIORS, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with Sophie in the Sity!

Teresa’s Triumphant Trio: Senior Portraits in Studio, at the Library, and Outdoors!

Teresa’s Senior Session was a “triumphant trio” of studio, outdoors and at the library!  We’ve photographed a few seniors at the library now and they are so much fun – partly because if a senior is into books then we have a lot to talk about because so are we!  Teresa was no exception – what a delight – smart, funny, adorable – all the things!  And this girl loves history which is Doug’s language.  A class of 2024 senior from Canton Prep, Teresa and her mom Ugochi joined us for quite the enjoyable day – let’s get to the highlights!
 

Teresa’s Triumphant Trio

We’ll start in the studio and on the grey background where Teresa wowed us with a beautiful outfit of traditional Nigerian dress…
 
Triumphant Trio
LOVE!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes from this setup from Facebook Live!
 

An outfit change and a new backdrop later we captured Teresa on the red couch for this one:

Triumphant Trio

Gorgeous.

Okay now let’s get to the second and third parts of the trio!  First outside…

Triumphant Trio

Big fan of that one outside, and then we went into the library where we went live again, this time on Instagram.  But shhhhhhhh – you have to be quiet in the library!  Hehe…

Allie Leads The Way For The Class Of 2025 Spokesmodels!

Wow…. we’re coming up on a quarter of the way into the 21st century and this new crew of spokesmodels WILL be one we are honored to have on our team – starting with Allie representing Frankel Jewish Academy!  Ally babysat Allie’s mom so things continue to come full circle here at Frameable Faces!

We love our spokesmodels and Allie is awesome – adorable, smart, funny, outgoing – we love her!  And her parents Jenny & Ron are pretty okay too – Jenny joined us at the studio for Allie’s spokesmodel session where we brought out a few brand new setups along with a couple of our tried and true favorites!  Let’s take a look!

Allie Leads The Way

Allie

Love the green on green!  The on location photos typically have the overall edge in terms of the percentage that we take of our seniors, but our studio work is so much fun and we’ve been experimenting with some lighting techniques and some new equipment!  We picked up a few tricks in Louisville at Imaging USA last month that we’re darn excited for, and our seniors get to choose studio AND location photos so it’s very common for us to do a little of both even if it’s 1/3rd studio and 2/3rds location.  Any mix is up to the senior and we plan that out in a consultation ahead of time!

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

And here’s the result:

Allie

Love it!  Also want to give a shout out to Lisa North of NorthStar Luxe for the wonderful job on Allie’s hair and makeup!  Lisa will be one of our choices for makeup this year – she’s awesome.

Here’s the black and blowy which is an old fave, but we have a new backdrop and lighting setup for it…

Allie

GORGEOUS.

Oh and we have more behind the scenes on that too from Instagram:

We’ll leave you with one more outfit change – outfit changes are a must!  We actually allow as many as you like in our three hour sessions!  The sweet spot is usually around 4-5 give or take.

Allie

Oh yeah, and there’s a red gel involved on that one…. SO COOL.

So there you have it!  We are HYPED.  Allie was the perfect spokesmodel to kick it off and we can’t wait to photograph her for her senior pics – we’ve always loved photographing Allie – here’s proof (she’s the older sis):

Cuteness overload.  And now she’s all grown up and a total delight.  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of her session and we can’t wait to share pics with you of the rest of our crew as we gear up for the Class of 2025!!!

An Artistic Approach To Senior Pictures With Amara!

An artistic approach is indeed what we took with Amara for her senior pictures and it turned into a really special session!  Amara is a soft-spoken sweetheart, she’s a North Farmington Raider just like us and she looked adorable among the art at Danielle Peleg Art Gallery!  We’ve known the Pelegs for a long long time and they have done an amazing job with their gallery in Keego Harbor on Orchard Lake Road.  We are so thankful to them for the use of their gallery for Amara’s session and we love when seniors have ideas like this for their session!  We were joined by her dad Michael and her mom Yarisha for these incredible portraits – let’s get to them!

An Artistic Approach With Amara

Amara

LOVE the photo through the sculpture….!!!

Here’s one up close and personal with the pretty colors behind our girl of the hour.

Amara

At this point it was time for an outfit change:

Amara

There was no shortage of pieces on display for Amara to connect with…

And we’ll leave you with one more:

Amara

Beautiful!!!

And there you have it – an artistic approach that yielded fantastic results!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with Amara!

Shamrock Rugby, A Pure Michigan Fall Day and OWEN!

If this session looks familiar to you it’s because Owen’s big bro Aiden was on this blog a couple years ago and Owen is also a Detroit Catholic Central Shamrock – except this time the sport is RUGBY!  Owen and his mom (and our longtime friend) Kelly joined us for a great time at CC as well as a little time at the studio and we got some fantastic stuff….  Let’s take a look!

Owen Crushes It

We started on location at CC:

Owen

Home field advantage!

There’s really so much to work with for our Shamrocks on that beautiful campus… and we also have some fun behind the scenes first from Instagram:

Anthony Is Awesome. Here’s The Highlights From Round Two!

Anthony is awesome.  We love this dude – not a shy young man by any stretch let’s say.  This CC Shamrock has represented the studio as a spokesmodel for the class of 2024 and he’s done it in style so we were pumped for another go round over at the CC campus this time for his senior pics!  His parents Lynne and John joined us for a day of fun so let’s get to some highlights! 

Anthony Is Awesome

Anthony Is Awesome

YES!!!  And those fall colors man…. perfection.

We have some fun behind the scenes too first from Facebook:

The Catholic Central campus is beautiful and there is plenty to work with whether it’s a natural setting or some CC landmarks…

Here’s one at the grotto…

Jonah Makes His Return To The Blog For Senior Pictures!

Jonah makes his return to the blog and we’re pretty pleased to present these highlights of this dude.  Jonah has been a fine representative of the class of 2024 for our studio as a spokesmodel and we were excited to get this West Bloomfield Laker in front of Ally’s camera again.  This time we photographed at a private location and it was soooooo cool.  We don’t have livestream behind the scenes for that reason, but we ain’t mad about it.  Not even a little – we had a great time with Jonah and his parents Wendy and Howard and the results rock!  Let’s get to it.

Jonah Makes His Return

Jonah Makes His Return

Looking good Jonah!

The grounds at this place are spectacular – perfect to frame our guy…

Jonah Makes His Return

As usual Jonah’s wardrobe was right on point as well…

Jonah Makes His Return

Love the more formal look!

And we’ll leave you with one more:

Awesome.  See what we mean?  What a day, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with Jonah!
