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!

Highly awesome – yes indeed.  A fitting description of this fab senior session with our latest senior Holly – a session that makes us wanna holla!  Holly is a West Bloomfield Laker, a soccer player and an all around great girl – we really enjoyed her and her mom Nicole’s company for the perfect day we spent in Birmingham!

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!

The Third Time Was A Charm With Ian For His Senior Pictures!

Ian is the man – he’s definitely one of the last if not THE last senior for the class of 2019 for us and he took the fact that he got rained out twice totally in stride.  What a great kid.  We really enjoyed our day with him and the wait was worth it – we had a perfect day for the third try even while the forecast was threatening to ruin it again!

Third Time’s The Charm With Ian

We started in the studio for a bit before we headed out and worked with the grey backdrop:

Ian

What a stud!  Love the look.

One more up close with just the collared shirt:

Ian

We also grabbed a few cap and gown photos and here’s a little behind the scenes of that from Facebook Live:

At this point we headed outside to Birmingham to get some location photos on a beautiful day!

Ian

We love the shades – we think more seniors should use them just like this!

We also have some more fun behind the scenes from Birmingham from when we went live on Instagram!


 

And we’ll leave you with this last one up close:

Ian

Good times, great smile!
 
And there you have it – the third time was a charm with Ian indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Josh Makes A Triumphant Return To The Studio For Senior Pics!

Josh made his triumphant return to the studio!!!  We love this dude – he and our Tony are the best of buddies and we’re going to miss him seeing him as often when he heads off to Western Michigan to be a Bronco!  In the meantime after representing our studio as a spokesmodel for the class of 2019 he came back in with his mom Amy to get a few more studio pics so let’s get to a few highlights!

Triumpant Return…!

Gotta love the ivy cap he started off with – it belonged to his grandpa – SO COOL.

Triumphant Return

We also have some hilarious behind the scenes action first from Facebook Live!

Next we changed it up with a couple different looks on the white background – first with the full length chillin’ on the stool:

Triumphant Return

Josh changed shirts one more time for these next couple:

Triumphant Return

A Fun And Casual Day For Senior Pictures With Elle!

Elle continues the exciting run on high school athletes that we’ve had here at the studio – she’s going to play hockey at Yale which she comes by honestly since the whole family including dad played hockey – okay maybe with the exception of mom Nicole who was a tennis player!  An athletic family to be sure!  Meanwhile Elle is bright and fun too and we had a blast with her, Nicole and her sister Sasha who joined us!
 

Fun With Elle…

 
We did this all on location in Birmingham and we had a great day for it!  Elle started out in this cute dress:
 
Elle
Love it!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes action and I have to say this is literally one of my all time fave senior livestreams just because of the burst of laughter from Sasha when I start out with my “Yo Yo Yo Instafam!”  Haha!
 

Now for a few more pics:
 
Elle
Just being fun and playful with the Yale gear on!
 
Elle
We have a little more behind the scenes fun as well this time from Facebook Live playing around with Elle’s USA Hockey gear:

And we’ll leave you with this one as Elle says “Peace Out!”
 
Elle
And there you have it!  Fun times with Elle!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Kendall Kills It On Her Senior Spokesmodel Session For The Class Of ’20!

Kendall kills it – in more ways than one!  For starters she’s an accomplished volleyball player, so kills in volleyball are important – a kill is an attack that results in an immediate point or side out, and so we attacked this spokesmodel session with gusto!  And yes, she killed it.  Kendall will be playing volleyball at Michigan and Michigan is our shared connection.  You see, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree as Kendall’s dad Vada (may he rest in peace) was my friend and teammate on the football team at Michigan so having Kendall in the fold representing our studio as the first spokesmodel we’ve ever had at Ann Arbor Skyline High School is really special for us.

Kendall Kills It

We met Kendall and her mom Sarah (who Ally knew from a previous life in finance before Ally and I and Sarah and Vada got together which is pretty cool) up in Ann Arbor on a perfect Saturday for the session but actually two nights before that they came to the studio for our spokesmodel party where we did a few studio pics so let’s start with one of those:

Kendall Kills

Love the simple white backdrop with the simple white tank… Kendall looks fantastic!

To Ann Arbor…

Now let’s visit a few of the Ann Arbor images a couple days later where as I said before we had a perfect day!  As a side note this is very typical for our senior sessions where we take some photos in the studio as well as on location.  We started in the Arb where the peonies were in full bloom so it was actually pretty crowded.  So we took a few photos by the flowers but shortly after we found a great spot on one of the trails:

Kendall Kills

I’m guessing we’ll be using that spot again…

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the day – first from the replay of the livestream we did on Instagram:

We also headed over to the law quad on campus which is really a beautiful setting and we used a couple different spots – here’s Kendall under one of the archway entrances to the courtyard:

Kendall Kills

And here’s the behind the scenes action on that photo from Facebook Live!

At this point we left the campus to get some photos at a couple of parks and while we usually include 4 photos in these posts we’re including an extra here since Kendall’s session is the last of our Class of 2020 spokesmodels, our first from Ann Arbor Skyline, and – well…..there were just too many good ones not to share an extra!

Kendall KillsLove that bridge and how Kendall’s tank top pops right off of it while still almost matching it…

And we’ll leave you with this one, which might very well be our favorite of the day:

Kendall KillsWhat a classic photo!!!!  Classic beauty!

And there you have it – Kendall kills it indeed!  We loved our day with them and we can’t wait to get Kendall in front of Ally’s camera again.  For those of you who have been following along we hope you’ve enjoyed our class of 2020 crew and we can’t wait to start photographing the sessions for the upcoming seniors!!!
