A Dazzling Day In Detroit With Dani For Her Senior Pictures!

We gushed about Dani plenty when we blogged about her spokesmodel session and after knowing her for about 6 months as she’s represented the studio for the class of 2018 we can say with certainty it was all justified.  We LOVE this girl and we definitely had a dazzling day with her in Detroit!  Her mom Diana came along for the fun and as you’ll see it was a session to remember.

Dazzling Day With Dani

Many of the highlights of this session ended up being in The Belt which we’ll get to, but we started out on Belle Isle and captured this stunner:

Dazzling Day

Wow – dazzling right?  I also have to say that I’ve been playing around with the new Snapchat filters on my iPhone for some of the behind the scenes stuff we put on our Snapchat stories and I think this one of Ally capturing the photo of Dani above is worth including here – like a cool little painting…

Meanwhile we have the YouTube live broadcast replay from Belle Isle as well for you here:

Now let’s head over to The Belt in downtown Detroit where we captured some real winners!

Dazzling Day

Love it – and here is the behind the scenes Facebook Live broadcast replay that goes with that shot:

Her outfit seemed to be just perfect for the colors there too….

Dazzling Day

We also went to an art gallery there that rotates installations of different mediums and we’ve been lucky enough to be there when they invited us in to take photos.  That’s where this last one was captured:

Dazzling Day

So cool!  And there you have it – a dazzling day in Detroit with Dani indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights!

A Perfect Day In Detroit Photographing Jordyn Is Our Jam!

We’ve had a ball photographing Jordyn while she’s been representing our studio as a spokesmodel for the class of 2018, and a perfect day in Detroit photographing Jordyn is definitely our jam.  As was the case with Jordyn’s spokesmodel session this was a family affair with mom Stacy, dad Eric, and even older sister Sydney met up with us for part of the day!  The game plan here other than the yearbook headshot at the studio was to explore Detroit and explore Detroit we did!

In Detroit Photographing Jordyn…

We started out at Belle Isle which is where we spent a good deal of time.  The more we shoot there the more great spots we find.  The first photo we’ll highlight is of Jordyn at the James Scott Memorial Fountain:

Detroit Photographing Jordyn

Great spot, great backlight, great senior!  As I said we roamed around the island and even stopped at the beach for a few yoga poses as you’ll see in this fun behind the scenes replay of our Facebook Live video we did!

Here’s another photo with the unique aesthetic of looking through a natural window at our girl…

Detroit Photographing Jordyn

So cool and Jordyn looks amazing!

To Eastern Market…

At this point we headed over to the Eastern Market area for some murals to play with and some grit and we found plenty of both!  First the mural:

Detroit Photographing Jordyn

Knowing where your light is and how to use it is key…. love the backlight on Jordyn’s hair once again!

We also have some more fun behind the scenes here as we headed into one of our fave empty buildings – this time from the replay of our YouTube Live video:


And the result with the grit:  

Detroit Photographing JordynAwesome shot to finish with!  Yes being in Detroit photographing Jordyn is definitely our jam and you can see why!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Rolling Into The Class of 2018 Senior Sessions With Ruby!

When you Google the meaning of a Ruby the first thing you see is that it’s a “high energy stone” which makes sense for this Ruby because she is comfortable on a stage.  And we’re comfortable with this Ruby because for starters she’s a legacy Frameable senior here – we met her a couple years ago when her sister Zoe was here.  Besides, she’s got that hint of snark that we love, and we had fun with her on her senior session as we officially kicked off the new class of 2018 sessions!

Rolling With Ruby…

We rolled down to Heritage Park with Ruby on a very muggy and warm day – but it was dry which was all that mattered since there was a brief downpour overhead at the studio right before we headed out.  Ruby’s mom Elyse joined us as well and we love her too – actually you’ll see her doing a little “guest hosting” of the behind the scenes livestreams a bit further down this post – a reprise since she did that two years ago too!  So now let’s focus on Ruby who looked great and did a fantastic job for these photos!

RubyLove that photo!  Great one to start with…

As mentioned we also have plenty of behind the scenes fun – starting with a YouTube Live broadcast getting ready to shoot at Heritage Park…  You can SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel here!

Here is one more in the black dress close up – LOVE:

RubyJust gorgeous…

We went with a couple outfit changes on location and we have more behind the scenes for you this time from Facebook Live:

Let’s take a look at one more by the barn door (Ruby’s choice on location) before we head back to the studio for a studio shot…

Ruby

Fabulous!

At this point we were happy to get in the car, blast some A/C and get back to the studio where we got a few shots on the black background like this one here:

Ruby

And there you have it!  The Class of 2018 is officially underway!  Ruby led us off in style and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!

It’s Time For The Class of 2018 Spokesmodel Panorama…..RAMA!!!

It’s time for the Class of 2018 Spokesmodel Panorama…..RAMA!  Haha – so when we were photographing our high school senior spokesmodels throughout the winter and spring of junior year I was playing with my iPhone to grab some behind the scenes panorama photos.  These are not “professional” photos by any stretch since I’m not the photographer here for starters…. Ally is.  But they are kind of cool and fun so let’s stack them all together and see what we come up with shall we?

2018 Spokesmodel Panorama

It’s a fun way to recap these photo sessions with this awesome crew – in the studio, in the snow, in old crumbling buildings, in a park, two at a time, with moms in the background, with wardrobes sprawled all over….  we’ve had so much fun!  Panoramas sometimes give you a distorted view along with the scope of the whole scene, and sometimes it looks like Ally is shooting in a completely different direction (but I can assure you she’s not)!!!

The Class of 2018 Spokesmodel Panorama RAMA!

Dwelling On Dani Since She’s The Last But Not Least Class of 2018 Spokesmodel!

We’re dwelling on Dani here, and we may just have saved the best for last here with our 2018 spokesmodel crew…  Okay well maybe that’s not totally the case because we love this whole crew so much, but Dani is awesome and we had already hung out with her for dinner at Chipotle before we photographed her so that just proves already how special this girl is to us!

Dani is another one of these superseniors who is sweet, smart and seriously focused on all the right things.  She’s a well-rounded student athlete and such a sweetheart – and she comes with a great mom too!  Diana is really great and she came on Dani’s session with us.  Needless to say we had a blast!

Dwelling On Dani…

We spent a brief time in the studio first on the black background with this super cute outfit:

Dwelling On Dani

Love it!

After just a few shots in the studio we headed out on location to the West Bloomfield trail network and a couple of different nature preserves since the conditions were really nice and we fired up some live video for some behind the scenes fun – first on Periscope and if you want to download the app and follow us there at @FrameableFaces you can do it at this link.  If you want to just follow our broadcasts from Twitter you can do that too here.

Here’s a full length photo outside – Dani was killin’ it!

Dwelling on DaniWe also need to give a shout out to Jordyn Popour from Detroit Glam for the fantastic job on Dani’s makeup, and we will be offering Jordyn’s services on sessions this year so ask us about it when you book your session!

Dwelling on DaniLet’s take a look at one more behind the scenes broadcast from Dani’s session shall we?  This time from Facebook Live
 

Here’s one more sneak peek from the session for y’all….

Dwelling on Dani

So there you have it – dwelling on Dani was well worth it, and we can’t wait to get her back in front of Ally’s camera for her senior pictures along with the rest of the class of 2018!  We’ll leave you with the fun Snapchat story from the day!

Join Us With Jordyn For A Springtime Spokesmodel Session!

Join us with Jordyn won’t you?  This was a fun springtime spokesmodel session to be sure – we usually start with the new crew of spokesmodels in the studio because it’s winter, and don’t get me wrong we love those!  But it’s also nice once the weather starts to break to get out to some of our fave locations and shoot outside and this was our first time back to Quarton Lake in Birmingham in a while.

As for Jordyn, we are pretty darn excited to have her in the new class of 2018 spokesmodel crew.  She’s a friend of our daughter Lacey’s and Lacey has good taste.  Jordyn is great and her parents are really cool too – it’s fun when both parents are available to come on the session with us!  So let’s get to a few of the sneak peeks from our day…

We started in the studio on the black backdrop:

Springtime Spokesmodel

ADORABLE!

We also have plenty of behind the scenes fun for you as usual and here is the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast – be sure to like us on Facebook and you can tune in to future broadcasts there!

 Here is one of our well known black and blowy shots – Jordyn rocked it!

Springtime Spokesmodel

This would also be a good time to give a shout out to Jordyn Popour of Detroit Glam for the hair and makeup which she did here in the studio – remember that, because we will be collaborating with Jordyn in the future to offer her services for our senior sessions!

Springtime Spokesmodel…

At this point it was time to head out to Quarton Lake in Birmingham which is a popular spot for our seniors!

We started at the spot we call…..”the spot”!

Springtime Spokesmodel

I mean….. so great right?

Here’s some more behind the scenes this time from the Periscope broadcast.  If you want to join in the fun on Periscope you can do it by following us at @FrameableFaces here or you can also just watch from Twitter here.

And here’s a fun last photo for now – Jordyn is clearly having fun here!

Springtime SpokesmodelAnd there you have it!  We’re glad you joined us with Jordyn for a Springtime Spokesmodel session!  We are looking forward to photographing her and the rest of the class of 2018 starting next month!  We’ll leave you with the fun Snapchat story from the day!

Hair Jordan! As In Her Hair Is Amazing And So Is She!

This blog title wrote itself – it’s impossible to look at a photo of Jordan and not be struck by her amazing hair so I had to do it.  You’ve heard of Air Jordan I’m sure – the brand is supposed to represent excellence right?  So “Hair Jordan” is certainly a good thing!  And the rest of her is pretty awesome too – we were impressed with this girl from the first time she came to the studio for her consultation with her mom Julia.  Just a cool confident teen and we look forward to the heights she’ll scale in the future.

Hair Jordan!  🙂

Meanwhile we are excited to present these photos from the studio and our urban excursion into downtown Pontiac.  This session was killer and Jordan’s mom and little bro both came with!  We started out in the studio so let’s take a look at a couple of those:

Hair Jordan

Okay – loving it all – Jordan’s skin tone and hair with the red couch against the red background?  Amazing!

We also have some fun behind the scenes of the session for you starting with the replay of our live Periscope broadcast from the studio where we were making the above photo.  If you don’t have the app yet you can download it and follow us at @FrameableFaces at this link or if you just want to watch from Twitter you can do that here.

Okay one more from the studio with a wardrobe and background change to the black fabric…

Hair Jordan

Fantastic…

At this point we headed to Pontiac to get some city photos – half painted walls, underneath parking garages – we love this stuff….  

Hair Jordan

Here is a little more behind the scenes action – this time from Pontiac on Facebook Live!

And one more from the city!  I actually spotted this wall.  We’ve really closed this fall out strong with our seniors from the standpoint of finding bunches of new spots!  We had never seen this wall before and it will now be “Jordan’s Wall” because that’s how we roll.

Hair Jordan

Wow – in love with Jordan’s session!!!!  “Hair Jordan” indeed!  That’s all we have for now – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Oh My Maya! Yasss This Senior Session Was Quite Memorable!

Oh my Maya!  That’s what these photos will make you want to say out loud since Maya killed it on her senior session!  You may remember Maya’s spokesmodel session in Detroit from earlier this year since she represented our studio for the class of 2017, and we love when our spokesmodels return for their senior session!  You see, the spokesmodel session is kind of “our session” to try out new spots, backdrops, styles and trends, while the senior session is “their session” to do whatever they want!  In Maya’s case the plan was to get more of a fall session so we headed outside in October to do just that.

Oh My Maya!

Maya’s mom Julie joined us and we had a great time, but before we head out on location let’s take a look at a studio photo on the black background with Maya sporting her figure skating gear!  Very nice!

Oh My Maya

We also have some behind the scenes action for you from the day, first with a broadcast replay from the studio on Periscope – if you want to be a part of our shows there you can download the app and follow us at @FrameableFaces at this link, or if you just want to watch from Twitter you can do that as well here.

Now let’s head out to see the location shots, starting with this secluded bridge at Heritage Park where we spent our time… 

Oh My Maya

Gorgeous – the colors, the backlight, the senior!  🙂

Here’s another one at a different spot:

Oh My Maya

Conditions were just perfect and Maya looks fabulous!  Let’s take a look at some more behind the scenes this time from Facebook Live!

We’ll leave you with one more…

Oh My Maya

So cute!  And there you have it – oh my Maya!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights from our day with her!

Caitlin (and Patrick) On A Perfect October Day For Senior Photos!

So this is indeed the story of Caitlin’s senior session which took place on a perfect October day in Birmingham, Michigan!  But Patrick was a welcome addition and companion and he helped make the session even more fun!  Patrick is a girl’s best friend – a young Collie with plenty of energy, and he posed quite nicely for a couple of shots!

Meanwhile we enjoy Caitlin a lot and her mom Deborah is a delight too!  We had plenty of fun and laughs on this bright sunny and warm day!  Actually the warm weather lasted much longer than usual this year and that made for more days like this deeper into senior season than you can usually expect…  Besides, Caitlin’s session was almost all on location so we got to enjoy a beautiful day.

Caitlin (and Patrick)…

Let’s start with the girl and her pup:

Perfect October Day

So fun!!!

Here’s the replay of the live Periscope broadcast from this part of the session.  If you want to be a part of our broadcasts in the future you can download the app and follow us at @FrameableFaces here, or you can just watch from Twitter!

Next we moved over to a couple of our fave spots to focus on the girl with the awesome red hair for the rest of the session…

Perfect October Day

Perfect October Day

Ooooh that backlight though!

We went live for another Periscope broadcast while we were at it too…

….and time for another outfit change!

Perfect October Day

We took to Facebook Live as well for some more behind the scenes fun as we moved into downtown Birmingham – check it out!

We’ll leave you with this last photo from the city…  love the lamp post shot!

Perfect October Day

And there you have it – a perfect October day with a fantastic girl!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Move Over Kerri Walsh Jennings – Here Comes Kayla and She’s On Fire!

Okay so maybe Kerri Walsh Jennings doesn’t have to “move over” per se….  After all she may be the greatest beach volleyball player of all time, but we don’t know Kerri Walsh Jennings personally and Kayla is a volleyball player we do know!  So with all due respect to Kerri, here comes Kayla and we are choosing to focus on her!  We spent a morning with her and her mom Dawn recently for senior pictures and it was a truly memorable experience!  And yes, this girl was “on fire” – but we’ll get to that in a little bit…  haha!

Here Comes Kayla…

With Kayla we had a game plan that included some studio work and some on location shooting in Birmingham.  We started on location as we tend to do for morning sessions when the sun is lower in the sky, and the conditions were perfect!

Here comes Kayla

Love it!

Let’s break for a little behind the scenes fun from the shoot shall we?  Let’s switch it up from the usual and start with a replay from the live Periscope broadcast from Quarton Lake!  If you want to be a part of our live broadcasts by joining and chatting live follow us at @frameablefaces here, or just watch us on twitter here.

Here’s one more photo on location for you before we head back to the studio:

Here comes Kayla

How about that backlight on her hair?  Gorgeous!

Now here’s our looping Vine that sums up the day in 6 seconds….

Next we’ll focus on the studio photos which you saw a glimpse of in the vine…

We focused mostly on the black background – love this one….

Here comes Kayla

And now here is the studio Periscope replay…

And as an added bonus we even did a little live video on Facebook!

Now it’s time to get to the coup de grace!  Remember when we said Kayla was “on fire”?  Remember when we told Kerri Walsh Jennings to move over?  This is the shot we were talking about….  Kayla rocking the Falcon gear with a fiery volleyball!

Here comes Kayla

Love that!  And there you have it!  Kayla had a fabulous session and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our morning with her!!!
