Paige is turning the page – from high school to college out in Boulder as a Colorado Buffalo and what’s crazy about that is that makes TWO of our spokesmodels for the class of 2019 who are attending Colorado in the fall, as Kaitlyn is as well! Hmmm…. Ally and I may have to include Boulder on a new Frameable Faces campus tour to visit these awesome young ladies! Ha! But I digress….
The point here is that we’ve loved our time with Paige and her mom Maxine – we had a great spokesmodel session a year ago now, and we picked up right where we left off this time around.
Paige Turns The Page
We started on location at Quarton Lake in the morning while the sun was low although we had a little cloud cover which can always work to your advantage as well:
This was a hard session to narrow down the results from – it was pretty perfect… we did have some fun with the behind the scenes as usual – first with Facebook Live:
And here’s a couple more from outside…
Pretty Paige In Pink!
And one more just flat-out gorgeous photo…
At this time we headed back to the studio to close it out with a few on the white background and we have a little more fun behind the scenes this time from Instagram:
And one of the results:
Paige looks confident, in control and well – ready to turn the page!!! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our session with her!
Telling a good story is important. It makes life fun and interesting! You might say we tell stories here through our photos and Ally is quite talented at doing so. That was certainly the case when Ian visited the studio and we weren’t surprised since we’ve known this kid for many years. He’s a funny dude and the whole family is great – they are friends of ours and we’ve photographed all of them before at one time or another. The thing is, on this day we took the whole storytelling notion a step further. Ian’s spirit animal got involved and we kicked it up a notch. Ian’s senior session tells a story indeed! But more on that later…. For now we’ll just start with a few photos:
Ian’s Session Tells A Story Indeed…
This was an all-studio session which is typically nice and chill. Let’s get a look at our guy…
Looking good! Ally loves when guys are in a pink tone…
We also have some fun behind the scenes action first from Facebook Live:
Here’s another one this time in black and white:
Ally got him – looks like he’s got a giggle coming on…
Here’s a cool one on the black backdrop…
And now here is where the story really takes a turn…. hehe.
We have a big stuffed Garfield here at the studio – we’re not even really sure why, but Ian’s mom Emma spotted it and said she thinks Garfield is Ian’s “spirit animal” so we all decided that Garfield should be in on the action. As a matter of fact we pulled up a settee for Garfield to sit on while Ian read a very inappropriate comic book created by the man responsible for the Doug & Ally Morning Show logo – the Artful Doodler himself from the U.K. – Rich Nairn! Ian read Dr. Ripper’s Sinister Shipmates to Garfield in a setting with story time piano music and, well…. you just have to see it for yourself. Here is the replay from our Periscope broadcast… LOL!

And here is the memorable result:
A wonderful story indeed!
And there you have it! A fun time was had by all and we got some fantastic photos out of it too! We hope you enjoyed the highlights!
Time to share some photos from our very own senior who makes us so proud! It’s Tony Time! We’re actually not even done with Tony yet – as with Lacey we’re kinda taking advantage of being the photographers for our own kids senior pics. We’ve already done a spokesmodel session with him and there will probably be one more session for Tony. But in the meantime we decided that New York City could be a cool location for Tony’s session, and more specifically the Brooklyn Bridge! We’d never actually walked across it before so we thought we would give it a shot. It was certainly a little tricky – lots of people to navigate but we got it done. We also hit a couple spots in Westchester County on the Hudson River and in a forest. We’re pretty pumped to share these so let’s get to it:
Tony On The Brooklyn Bridge!
We actually parked in Brooklyn so we could photograph towards Manhattan and it was a little busy and a little chilly but our lighting was great (a great sundown orange sky and off camera flash) and we got some great photos!
Looking good with Lady Liberty against the orange sky…
We also have plenty of fun behind the scenes and you’ll see how hectic it was for us! First from Facebook:
Here’s a cool one where you really get a nice view of the bridge with our guy:
Here’s some more behind the scenes from the Instagram broadcast…
We were staying with friends in Westchester County on this trip and the next day we headed up to a couple scenic spots in the woods and on the Hudson River. First at Dobbs Ferry…
We also have a few Snapchat highlights where you can get a sense of the scenic spot on the Hudson River!
We’ll leave you with one more close up in another natural setting:
So there you have it! A very cool experience for us to be able to get these awesome shots of our own in New York! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time in the Big Apple!
What a year (so far) it’s been for our Class of 2019 seniors! We decided to go back for the first time and create an EPIC recap video of the best of the Class of 2019 Senior Snapchat Stories for you! We know not everyone has Snapchat, and even if they do they may not have caught all of our stories throughout the senior season so here we go…
The Class of 2019 Senior Snapchat Stories
This video makes us smile the whole way through – it’s about 15 minutes long and includes everyone we shared highlights of publicly throughout – from Detroit to Ann Arbor, Pontiac to New York, summer, fall and winter, with plenty of wildlife, laughs, squad selfies and other shenanigans – but most of all our SENIORS!!! We love these young people and there are still more of them to come so there will likely be a part 2…
Audibles With Andrew
Let’s start in the studio with a dapper formal picture:
We also have some behind the scenes – first with Instagram Live from the studio in uniform:
We switched up from formal to uniform and back again for both in studio and on location – audibles remember? Let’s head over to the school at this point but first with another stylish up close pic before we get into game gear!
Chase charmed us alright – we really like this guy. Just a nice dude and really personable, and we have to give him credit because his day for his senior session was a cold one – it ain’t easy being outside with no coat and smiling through it for photos! Chase’s mom Courtney came along and eventually the entire extended fam showed up for a few family portraits on location while we were at it! This blog post however is about our guy Chase so let’s get to the highlights from Birmingham!
We set up at Quarton Lake which is where we got all of our images and Chase had a few outfits ready to roll. The man has style. He started out in a suit:
Chase is the man.
Here we have some behind the scenes fun from the day from Facebook Live!
Quick outfit change and we bounced over to the dock for this relaxed pose…
Next we went with a half length and made sure to have that belt buckle in the shot!!!
We have more behind the scenes fun this time from the Instagram replay:
And we’ll leave you with this closeup – Chase still getting it done – like a champ!
And there you have it! Chase charmed us indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!
Wow what a day with Loren! Loren was so adorable the first time she came to the studio – she had been following along with some of our sessions on Instagram and elsewhere on social media as many do and she was totally fired up for her turn! She and her mom Lili had some great ideas for the session and it led us to some things we had never tried before! We’ll get to that in a little bit, but suffice it to say (as you’re about to see) this was a legendary day with Loren for sure! Dad Eugen and little bro David even hung out and jumped in for a couple photos at one point so it was a family affair and we had a lot of fun, but this blog post is about Loren, so let’s get to a few pics!
We started on Belle Isle as we often do and got this image of our girl with the skyline in the background:
We also have some fun behind the scenes from the day starting with the replay from the livestream on Instagram!
We stayed on Belle Isle for a bit and also got this pretty photo of Loren in the willow!
Love that one!
At this point we switched locations and headed over to the Belt where we captured a cool pic of Loren looking off to her future! Hehe…
The overalls with the Hamilton socks rock!
And now for the coup d’état! It was getting towards evening and it was a little chilly – not quite carnival weather, and yet we had plans for the carousel on the riverwalk – add a perfect dress to match and a legendary photo is created! We even made this one into a metal sample for the studio! Truly a fairy tale photo – and first here’s the behind the scenes on Facebook Live!
And the result!
Yes it was a legendary day that we won’t forget with Loren, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!
We’ve known Eric for a while – not that long, but long enough to know he’s a solid guy. That’s the best word really – just solid you know? He’s been a Bloomfield Hills Blackhawk football teammate of our Tony for 4 seasons but we really started to get to know Eric best over the last year or so, so we were really pleased to have him here at the studio with his parents Kimberly and Vince for some straightforward, low key and yeah, just solid pics for his senior session. He’s got a great head on his shoulders, knows he wants to be in law enforcement and just the kind of guy you would want your kid hanging with.
Solid Guy Eric
This session took place completely in the studio and we started on the grey paper backdrop:
Dapper – digging that business casual look!
We also have some fun behind the scenes from the broadcast on Facebook Live:
A couple more on the grey – including this super cool classic shot in black and white:
And another close up in color…
At this point we switched to the black background and we’ll leave you with this full length image:
Just solid as we said! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time in the studio with Eric!
We love our seniors as you know, and we’re always really impressed with seniors who take the initiative to call the studio themselves and set up their own session! This is not a knock on the seniors whose parents make the call, but we love when we can hear the confidence and eloquence of a young person who can handle themselves so well right off the bat! This was the case with Anika, and that first impression was just the tip of the iceberg. She is such a sweetheart! Anika is also the number 1 ranked tennis player in the state of Michigan and is leaving this month to embark on her journey to play tennis at the University of North Carolina! Doug’s Godfather played football at UNC back in the 50’s so we’ve always had a slight affinity for the Carolina Blue and White and now we’ll have a personal connection there with someone whose career we are excited to follow!
Anika Serves Up An Ace
As for her senior session it was one to remember – both her parents Pat and Sushma joined us for her day and they are both delightful – we had a lot of fun – and the photos? Just awesome – an ACE of a session for sure and you could say we “LOVE” this girl – see what we did there? Let’s get to the highlights!
We’ll start in the studio on the black…
We played around with the white background too – so many options and it has been hard to narrow these down for this blog post… In the meantime we have some fun behind the scenes first from the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast in the studio:
At this point we headed out to the tennis courts for some location photos and we had some really cool Michigan fall colors in the background for a tennis setting which was pretty neat as Anika donned some UNC gear:
Servin’ and slayin’….
We also have some behind the scenes fun from the tennis court at West Bloomfield High School from our Instagram livestream – take a look:
From there we headed over to Birmingham and these next two are both closeups but they’re just too good – so instead of choosing we’re leaving you with these two… one on the dock at Quarton Lake:
And one with a change of wardrobe and a natural background – awesome!!!
Anika served up an ACE of a session indeed, she’s got the ADVANTAGE for life, and we LOVE her for sure! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with her!
