A Happy Hannah Happening – Spectacular Senior Pics in the D!

A happy Hannah happening was what we had in downtown Detroit on this senior session!  We go back to high school with Hannah’s mom Robyn so this was one of those surreal sessions for us and it was certainly one to remember!  Hannah’s dad Glenn came along as well and we had a blast.  As for Hannah we just have to say that she has this fun and infectious personality that totally draws you in – just a cool and nice girl who isn’t afraid to have a good laugh!  We loved working with her and she had an amazing session, so let’s get to the pics!

Happy Hannah Happening in the D

Hannah decided on Detroit so we spent all of our time there, and we started on Belle Isle where we got the cool skyline photo that we love!

Happy Hannah Happening

Okay she’s adorable.

We also have some fun behind the scenes for you first from the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast:

We grabbed a few more photos on Belle Isle too – first on the red bridge up close and personal with our girl:

That backlight is kickin’!

And we also went back to the graffiti bridge – here’s some more behind the scenes from Instagram:

….and the result:

We made a location change to Eastern Market to finish up the day and found a few awesome murals – here’s one of them to leave you with:

A Stunning Breakaway Senior Session In Hockeytown With Morgan!

A breakaway in hockey is when a player has the puck and an open skating lane to the net with no one in front of her.  That’s how we felt with Morgan on her senior session – nothing stopping us and nothing stopping this girl!  Morgan is one of our spokesmodels for the class of 2019 and we were looking forward to this session – especially since Little Caesars Arena is her team’s home ice and we were able to get on the ice for a few photos!  But more on that later…

A Stunning Breakaway Senior Session…

Morgan’s mom Jodi joined us for an overall epic day in Detroit which started on Belle Isle.  We really thought we might be in trouble with the weather but that day was pretty much do or die scheduling wise and it started to pour on the way down.  Uh oh….  BUT – lo and behold it stopped when we got to Belle Isle and there wasn’t another drop from the time we started photographing Morgan!  Let’s start with this amazing new angle of the D as the backdrop for this stunning image of our girl!

Breakaway Senior

WOWWWWWWW.  Such a cool image and Morgan looks fantastic!

Here’s one up close and personal:

Breakaway Senior

At this point we headed over to Eastern Market to get some murals and we fired up the Instagram LIVE for some behind the scenes fun:

And here’s a cool mural shot with Morgan’s reflection in the water from the day’s rains…

Breakaway Senior

Just love that one…

Now it was time to head over to Little Caesar’s Arena and with a little assist from Red Wings Zamboni legend and building manager Al Sobotka we headed on down to the practice ice where Morgan’s team the Little Caesar’s 19U Girls AAA plays.  Here’s the fun behind the scenes from Facebook Live!

And we’ll leave you with this fun photo from the ice!

Breakaway Senior

Okay actually we’ll leave you with the Snapchat story from the day because it’s just too good…. including the fiery setup in the studio after a stop at Chili Mustard Onions for lunch!  So much to cover – too much to cram all of it into a blog post!!! Lol…  

And there you have it – a stunning breakaway senior session with Morgan in Hockeytown indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Dov Takes Over Detroit With An Epic Senior Session and a Day Of Firsts!

What a day… when Dov takes over Detroit epic stuff happens – at least it did this time.  Lots of firsts and new things for us – a new mural, a new bridge, a new photographer friend, a new restaurant for lunch…. a very memorable day overall.  Dov is also a buddy of our Tony so we knew this would be a good time.

Dov Takes Over Detroit

Dov’s mom Lauren joined us for some exploring down in Detroit – we figured we’d get our usual spots – Belle Isle, a few murals over by Eastern Market etc.  But we were approached by a photographer named Jen on Belle Isle who took us to a secret place (lol) and we took a few amazing photos on this really cool bridge!Dov Takes Over

So cool – and the photo above of our guy doesn’t do it justice – just take a look first at our fun behind the scenes video from Instagram Live!

And the result:

Dov Takes Over

Dope!

At this point we headed over to Eastern Market for some murals and got a few really cool photos – first with the mosaic wall which is becoming one of our faves:

Dov Takes Over

Here’s the behind the scenes from that one with the replay from the Facebook LIVE broadcast:

Last but not least we explored a little further down a street we hadn’t been down and discovered a new mural we hadn’t seen before – so cool!

Dov Takes

 

And there you have it!  After a well-earned stop at the first vegan coney in Detroit – Chili Mustard Onions (fantastic by the way) we headed home.  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with Dov!

Taking Over Detroit For Senior Pictures With The Jack Attack!

It’s time for the Jack Attack!!! As in Jack’s senior pics in Detroit where we had an epic day!  Jack is a legacy here which is always fun since we photographed his big sis Kylie too a couple years ago!  With Jack we hit a bunch of spots including some Pie-Sci Pizza which is becoming our go to – we love hanging in Detroit!  Jack’s mom Kelly joined as well, so let’s get to the highlights shall we?

Jack Attack in the D

We started out at Belle Isle and we used the fountain with a new angle that we haven’t used before for a really cool photo of Jack with the fountain way in the distance…

Jack Attack

Love this – pretty sure we’ll be doing this again – it will be known as “The Jack” shot.

We also have some behind the scenes first from the replay of our Instagram Live broadcast:

We also grabbed a photo of Jack on the red bridge that we really like there before moving on to get some murals…

Jack Attack

At this point we headed over to the Eastern Market to get some photos of Jack with some murals and we discovered this huge one of some of Jack’s favorite hip hop artists – we’re including it here as an extra for fun – Jack is small in the photo but the whole thing is pretty sweet – check it out:

Jack Attack

And here we have some behind the scenes this time from Facebook Live before we get to a couple more photos:

Fun right?  Okay two more photos:

Jack Attack

Lots of great spots to photograph in the D…

Jack Attack

And there you have it – the Detroit takeover with the Jack Attack!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

So yeah this kid Kyle here….. he’s a keeper and so is his senior session!  What a great kid!  We had a great day in Detroit with his parents Dawn and Mark and Mark even guest hosted a livestream which you’ll see below!  Kyle is a Bloomfield Hills Blackhawk and we’re excited to show you a few highlights from our day!

Kid Kyle Is A Keeper

We started out at Belle Isle to get a bunch of photos including the Detroit skyline shot.  We fired up the Facebook Live and Kyle’s dad Mark guest hosted the broadcast!  He did a fine job…

Fun!  And more importantly we got this killer photo of Kyle with Detroit in the background:

Kid Kyle

So cool!

We also used a few structures on the island including this new angle…

Kid Kyle

Very cool.  Kid Kyle was killin’ it!

At this point we headed back downtown to The Belt Alleyway to get a few more and we fired up the Instagram livestream:

…and here are a couple results:

Kid Kyle

Definitely one of our faves from the session and pretty sure it’s another new spot with this pose for us!

One more up close:

Kid Kyle

Maksim To The Maximum On A Mega Senior Session In Detroit!

Maksim has been in front of Ally’s camera before along with the whole fam, and we personally go back with his dad Mike a long way – for Doug about 42 years!  So we were excited for the opportunity to photograph Maks for his senior pictures and we had a mega gameplan to takeover Detroit to do it!  The whole fam came along – mom Sue and little bro Viktor!

Maksim To The Maximum

We spent the whole day on location in Detroit – first stop Belle Isle!

Maksim

Max is looking good with Detroit as the backdrop!  That’s the GM Headquarters AKA the Renaissance Center in the distance!

After some time on Belle Isle we headed over to Eastern Market to find a couple of murals and we also fired up some behind the scenes on Facebook Live – take a look!

And here’s one of the results:

Maksim

So cool!

Next stop back downtown to the Belt alleyway for a pic of Maksim and “MOM” hehe…

Maksim

At this point we had one more stop to make and that was West Riverfront Park where we had the Ambassador Bridge as a backdrop and here is the behind the scenes action from there that we streamed on Instagram:

Such a cool spot, BUT – we’re going to sign off with a photo from there of Maksim to the Maximum – up close and personal:

Maksim

Nailed it!

And there you have it – it was Maksim to the Maximum indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day which actually ended with pizza at Pie Sci – YUM!  What an awesome time we had all around and the results prove it!

Olivia’s Epic Detroit Senior Session Makes Us Want To Shout OliviYEAH!

Olivia’s senior session was indeed a special one – an epic day in the D – so much so it makes us want to shout OliviYEAH!!!!!  We had a blast with her and her mom Amy.  We’ve actually known them for years and so these sessions can get very surreal when we’ve known our senior for so long – in this case with a senior Ally actually photographed when Olivia was only 18 months old!  We covered a lot of ground and we hope you enjoy these highlights!  They’re pretty dope (right Olivia?).

OliviYEAH!!!

We started off in the studio for a few photos before heading downtown and we did a little of our “black and blowy” – the black backdrop with the fan blowing on Olivia’s hair:

OliviYEAHQuite awesome with the heightened dramatic look of the black and white!  Timeless…

At this point we headed downtown for some adventure – and we lucked out because the forecast hadn’t been looking so great for our day as recent as 24-48 hours prior.  But we ended up with a fab day…  First stop, Belle Isle

OliviYEAH

Love that photo at the fountain!!!  Olivia looks adorable and we have some fun behind the scenes as well, first with the raw footage from the Instagram Live replay:

Next we headed over to the Belt alleyway downtown for a few photos including this one:

OliviYEAH

Just love it!!!  And here’s a little more behind the scenes fun this time from Facebook Live:

We made a few more stops around town including Eastern Market where we got this awesome close up of Olivia just being Olivia with a big beautiful smile!

OliviYEAH

 

And there you have it!  Actually since this session was so epic we had to include the Snapchat story which has a few fun moments – enjoy!

We hope you liked these highlights and now you see why they have us saying “OliviYEAH”!!!!

A Spectacular Detroit Spokesmodel Session Takeover With Kaitlyn!

When we asked our son Tony who is a junior at Bloomfield Hills High School who did he think would be a perfect spokesmodel at his school – a girl who is nice, social, well liked, smart and fun with a little extra online influence perhaps, the first name he spoke was Kaitlyn.  He was spot on!  This girl is amazing.  Sharp, sweet and with an infectious laugh like no one’s business, she is perfect!  And her spokesmodel session was perfect too!  It wasn’t easy – while the light was great the wind was not.  It was windy as all get out down in the D which can pose a challenge for a girl with long hair, and it wasn’t exactly warm either, but Kaitlyn still rocked it and produced some of the images that we know will prove to live on as Frameable iconic photos.  So let’s get to it!

Detroit Takeover With Kaitlyn

Kaitlyn’s mom Sara is a delight as well and she came with us down to Detroit where we started off on Belle Isle as we frequently do when we head down there.  The first photo we’re sharing here is the best Detroit Skyline photo we’ve taken and all it took was recognizing that we needed a different vantage point than we’ve used in the past!  We couldn’t be happier with how this looks…

Kaitlyn

Gorgeous Girl!

Now we did a livestream on Instagram but were unable to record it – however we think Kaitlyn’s Snapchat story was just as good so this time we’ll start with that for some of our fun behind the scenes…

An outfit change and here we are with another closer up with our girl…

Kaitlyn

At this point we headed into downtown to the Belt Alley and got this awesome photo with these vibrant colors!

Kaitlyn

Here we have some more behind the scenes fun with our Facebook Live Video replay from the Belt – as you can see Tony actually came along with us on Kaitlyn’s session and they took a few photos together which will surface soon…..  🙂

At this point we made one more location change, heading over to some of the more ratchet areas of the Eastern Market for a little urban decay which makes for great photos!  We’ll leave you with this one…

Kaitlyn

Love.

And there you have it – a spectacular spokesmodel Detroit takeover with Kaitlyn!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with her and we cannot wait to do it again for her senior pictures soon!!!

Sarah’s Stunning Senior Session In And Around Detroit!

Senior sessions in and around Detroit always get us excited – there’s just such a buzz around the city and so much to photograph!  It’s even better when we have a senior who is down for some fun with personality, style, and the whole fam!  Yep Sarah’s parents and older sister came along and we all had a great time!  Sarah is a sweetheart and we are pleased to present the highlights of our day with her!

Sarah Around Detroit!

We started on Belle Isle which is how we typically roll – it’s a great location with all kinds of spots to discover – we’ll pick up the action there:

Around Detroit

Love that, and love the aesthetically pleasing match of Sarah’s top to the brick around her!

We also have some fun behind the scenes for you as we usually do – first with the replay of the YouTube Live broadcast at Belle Isle:

Here’s a photo now of Sarah over by the conservatory where we found plenty of flowers to play with – and why not with Sarah’s flowery dress!

Around Detroit

At this point we left the island to head over to The Belt where there are fun murals to play with, and we captured this fun photo:

Around Detroit

So cool with all the colors, and here is the behind the scenes this time from the Facebook Live broadcast replay!

Back to the studio…

At this point it was time to get back to the studio for our signature “black and blowy” setup and we’ll leave you with one of those:

Around Detroit

Um……stunning!!!

And there you have it!  A stunning session with Sarah in and around Detroit and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!

Ben’s Senior Session In The Big D Was Totally Bomb!

Ben’s senior session in the big D was totally bomb indeed.  We are photographing seniors in Detroit more and more these days and Ben is a buddy of both of our kids – it’s kinda cool this year for us with some of our seniors because this is the class in between our 2 and Ben we’ve known for a while so it was a ton of fun.  Ben’s mom Erin is great too – she came along and we laughed a lot on this session!

Senior Session In The Big D…

We started on Belle Isle which is pretty typical for us when we head down to Detroit and we’ll pick up the action there with the fountain in the background:

Totally Bomb

At this point we headed over to The Belt alley to get a few more shots and we have some behind the scenes fun from the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast: 

…and here is one of the resulting photos:

Totally Bomb

We then made another stop over by the Eastern Market to one of our favorite empty buildings for a little urban decay vibe (even though Detroit is very much “un-decaying” and coming back strong these days).

Totally Bomb

Ben – totally Bomb!

We headed back to the studio at this point for a fiery finish to the session – totally bomb!  Here’s the fun behind the scenes action from the YouTube Live replay:

And the killer result!

Totally Bomb

Bad dude right there….

And there you have it – Ben’s session was totally bomb indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!
