Gettin’ All Municipal With Michael In Pontiac For Senior Pictures!

Gotta take a second to pat myself on the back for my alliterative title here for the day we got municipal with Michael! We dig the urban shots in Pontiac and we had a good time getting edgy with this dude. Michael is another senior we’ve known for a while since he and our Tony have been going to school together for years so we were looking forward to this one!

Gettin’ Municipal With Michael

We headed to Pontiac which is what Michael chose for the fun edgy city images.  We had a great time, talked some football and we got some great stuff, starting with one of our fave looks – the fire escape…

 Municipal

Lookin’ good!

We also played around with some graffiti and murals and some live streaming for the behind the scenes fun – first with Facebook Live:

We did a little exploring and this photo is pretty cool with the reflection in the glass of our guy:

Here’s another outfit change with a little ASU style in the black and white…

Municipal

So COOL.

We also have another behind the scenes replay for you this time from the Instagram LIVE:

And we’ll leave you with one more:

Municipal

Good stuff!

Rock on – we got municipal with Michael and the results are killer.  We hope you enjoy the results of our day with him!

In Pontiac and In The Zone With Zaire For Senior Pictures!

I’ve always said when a senior calls the studio themselves and sets up the appointment for their own senior pictures that it’s impressive.  Not a HUGE thing per se, but it’s usually an indication that they can take some initiative and get things done and we were impressed with Zaire from the start.  What a great kid – even called ahead on the day of the session to let us know he might be a few minutes late, and when I said don’t sweat it he said it was important to him to apologize.  That says a lot!  As for his mom April she’s great too – she has just a little going on with Zaire’s graduation coming up AND Zaire’s sister graduating from college out of state – she’s stressed!  But there’s NO stress here at Frameable Faces!  Especially when we’ve got such a great senior to photograph and a great day in Pontiac to do it!

In The Zone With Zaire…

Now we will say that we started briefly in the studio to get a few photos on the grey in Zaire’s suit, and while these turned out just fine we’re only going to show you the fun behind the scenes replay of the Instagram live from our YouTube channel because we just love the location photos so much!

Good times and the dude was looking dapper!

To Pontiac

To Pontiac we went and Zaire kept the nice clothes on for the first set of photos where we got this result:

Zaire

One of our faves from the session for sure…

At this point we went more casual:

Zaire

We like the reflection in the glass on that one…

Zaire

Same outfit, different sidewalk!

We also have more behind the scenes fun with the replay of our Facebook Live video at another cool spot…  take a look!

And here is the cool result!

Zaire

Love that one!

So as you can see we were indeed in the zone with Zaire and had a fantastic time with him – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!

A Vic-TORI-ous Senior Spokesmodel Session For The Ages With Tori!!!

What can we say about Tori and the hands of fate that were all over this story from how and when we found her all the way to the epic spokesmodel session with her and her mom Lora in the YAK!  The “yak” would be Pontiac which is where Tori was born hehe…  Let’s just say we already have multiple inside jokes and stories from our short time knowing each other – we just seemed to fit from the first minute.

It all started with Tori’s mom Lora walking into the studio and asking about senior pictures really early in the game for the class of 2019 at the urging of another senior mom we love while we were (and kinda still are) in recruiting mode for our new crew.  When she told us her daughter went to West Bloomfield Ally and I looked at each other right away and both our wheels were turning…  Next thing you know we had Lora and Tori come for a little pow wow and we knew immediately we wanted her on our team!  The rest is his-TORI!!!  See what I did there?  Let’s see how many ways I can work Tori’s name into this blog post lol… 

A Vic-TORI-ous Session

We decided on Pontiac as I mentioned earlier on a fairly chilly day and even with some technical difficulties with Ally’s new off camera flash we still pulled off a handful of outstanding photos!  Let’s get to a few…

Tori

How adorable is she?  Let’s also give a shout out here to Yasmeen at The Beauty Lounge for Tori’s makeup and Natalie at Mandy Rose Studio for Tori’s hair!

Let’s also take a look at the hilarious behind the scenes Facebook Live – we LOVE this girl…. haha!

One more photo outdoors before we move to the next phase…

Tori

Love.  Great style on Tori here and we are pretty pleased with the lighting (when it worked)!  That’s the nice thing about spokesmodel sessions – they are a great opportunity to try out new spots, new equipment and new techniques, and while Ally was a little frustrated fighting with the equipment we do love the results!

At this point we headed over to the Flagstar Strand Theatre which you should check out for a show if you get a chance – what a gem of a venue in downtown Pontiac and special thanks goes to them for the access.  They set us up in the dressing room where we decided on a whim to get a few really fun shots of the star backstage like this one!

Tori

We played around in the theatre and got some cool stuff but the lighting and the angles we tried were a bit challenging.  We’ll go back and try again at some point – you can get a sense of what we were doing in this fun Instagram Live we did from inside…

A couple of behind the scenes shots like the pano I grabbed and the shot Lora took below are pretty cool too – they give you an idea of what we were trying to do even if the finished images weren’t quite ready for prime time…

Tori

Tori

Now we’ll head outside for one more photo which could be our fave of the day with Tori in a cute winter hat…

Tori

Just love that one!!!  Gorgeous girl.

And that’s a great way to end it for now – we are thrilled to have Tori representing our studio and we cannot wait to get her in front of Ally’s camera again!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!
