Elan Epitomizes Character On His Senior Session – He Has It and He IS It!

We love this kid – he’s been a buddy of our Tony for years and he’s a great kid – and he’s a character in a good way.  Thinking about him can make us smile – Elan epitomizes character, as in he has it and he IS it!  We’ve spent plenty of time with his mom Julie over the years too – in the bleachers at swim meets, football games and even in her chair at her office (she’s our dentist)!  These guys were the first to call us for the class of 2019 so we had this on our radar and our calendar for a long time and we had fun…!!!

Elan Epitomizes Character…

We did a combo of studio and location work with Elan and we’ll start in the studio:

Elan Epitomizes

Now that’s a dapper dude…

We also have some fun behind the scenes action – first with the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

At this point we headed out on location for a few – first with a cool textured wall that we like, and some photos just look good in black and white like this one!

Elan Epitomizes

Next we wanted some natural settings so we’ll finish with these:

Elan Epitomizes

Digging the flannel!

We also have the behind the scenes Snapchat story for you here with a few fun filters too…

And we’ll leave you with one more up close and personal!

Elan Epitomizes

And there you have it!  Elan epitomizes character and it comes through in the photos!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Advantage Donovan As He Dominates During His Senior Session!

It was advantage Donovan for sure as he totally dominated the game on his senior session on a perfect August day!  We’ve known “Big D” as we’ve always called him since he and our Tony were kindergartners at Doherty about a dozen years ago, and Donovan and his little sis Camie were actually in the window of our studio here when we first opened!  Love this family and Donovan’s mom whom I’ve always called “Downtown Julie Brown” and Camie both joined us on Donovan’s session!  His dad Steve was home sleeping (that’s a little inside joke).  As a matter of fact we did a CAMIE TAKEOVER on all the behind the scenes which is pretty much the cutest thing ever, so yes this was one to remember.

Advantage Donovan

We started on the tennis courts at Bloomfield Hills High School where Donovan plays on the team, and his serve is like a cannon shot…  We also started the Camie takeover here BUT *****CAUTION***** this is the only behind the scenes that you may not be able to really get through because Facebook Creator was really glitchy this time and we didn’t know until afterward.  The audio is okay but you may want to skip further down to the Snapchat story and the Instagram Live.  Our apologies on that – so let’s get it out of the way….

Now here is the tennis result:

Advantage Donovan

Looking good!

Next we moved on to some natural settings and got some great stuff…

Advantage Donovan

And now for the best of the Camie takeover – the Snapchat Story!  This is so fun!

Here’s one more from one of our locations:

Advantage Donovan

What a stud!

At this point it was time to head back to the studio and we fired up the Instagram Live:

And here’s dapper Donovan with the suit and tie look!

Advantage Donovan

And there you have it!  Advantage Donovan indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights from our day with him!

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!

A Million Kilowatts of Awesomeness With Kaitlyn On Her Senior Session!

Kilowatts are units of energy and it’s an appropriate word to describe the awesomeness that is Kaitlyn.  She’s a bundle of infectious personality and energy and we just LOVE her.  We’ve said this before but we’ll say it again – she’s one of our all time favorite people and we couldn’t think of anyone better to photograph on Ally’s birthday!  Kaitlyn and her mom Sara even brought us Yummy Cupcakes to celebrate!

Kilowatts

What’s funny is the timing of this has me (Doug) writing this on MY birthday which has me smiling too!  Kaitlyn is representing our studio this year as a spokesmodel at Bloomfield Hills High School at our son Tony’s suggestion and he was spot on with that recommendation.  We had an epic spokesmodel session with Kaitlyn in Detroit and we couldn’t wait to get her in front of Ally’s camera again!  But could we top it???  A million kilowatts of awesomeness with Kaitlyn would suggest a resounding YES!!!

A Million Kilowatts Of Awesomeness With Kaitlyn

The last time Katilyn was here we got some studio stuff along with the Detroit pics and this time we decided to spend all of our quality time outside for some natural scenery – of course we upped the ante a bit which we’ll get to but we’ll start in the meadow:

KilowattsSo beautiful with the pop of color!

We also have some behind the scenes fun starting with the Instagram Live replay where you can see I had a little fun with Sara – and who by the way is totally delightful which comes as no surprise as Kaitlyn’s mom.


 

As a little bonus here is a bit of twitter trolling from the video above… hehe….

Kilowatts

LOL.

At this point it was time to add some KILOWATTS OF AWESOMENESS to the session.

Kilowatts

Wow.

And if that weren’t enough, we finished with Kaitlyn IN the water!!!  First here is the behind the scenes replay of the Facebook Live broadcast:

And now….. well we’ll let these speak for themselves.

Kilowatts

Just stunning!

Kilowatts

One of our favorite sessions ever.  We’re going to include the Snapchat Story here too while we’re at it:

So there you go…  such a wonderful day and fantastic session.  A million kilowatts of awesomeness with Kaitlyn!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

This Kid Kyle Is A Keeper and So Is His Senior Session in Detroit!

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

Awesome – good lookin’ dude!

And there you have it – Kid Kyle killed it – he’s a keeper for sure and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!

It’s Time For The Class of 2019 Spokesmodel Panorama…..RAMA!!!

Here we go with the Class of 2019 Spokesmodel Panorama…..RAMA!!!  We did this last year and this is just our fun way of stacking these behind the scenes iPhone panoramic photos that Doug took during our spokesmodel sessions.  There’s something cool about the way the scope of a panoramic photo can capture and distort a scene in a weird and wonderful way!  These are not “professional” photos by any stretch and are not meant to be taken too seriously, but they are a fun way to recap our last few months with our Class of 2019 crew as we head into senior season!

2019 Spokesmodel Panorama

This year’s sessions took us to the usual haunts as well as a new one or two… burned out buildings, majestic theaters, trails and parks, and of course the Frameable Faces studio!  We have such an outstanding team representing us this year for the class of 2019 and so in no particular order, here is your panorama…..RAMA!

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!!!

Zinging Around The Woods With Zach For His Senior Session!

Zinging around the woods with Zach on an unseasonably warm late fall day is our idea of a good time!  Zach is a fun dude – he’s a buddy of our son Tony too so he passes the test for full approval – haha…  We are also actually distant cousins with Zach so we’ve known his mom Liz forever too so we knew this would be a fun day. 

Zinging around the woods with Zach

We headed over to the woods behind the West Bloomfield library and found a pathway that we had never taken before, and wow what a cool spot!  The forest floor was coated with fall leaves and we got some great stuff, so let’s get to it shall we?

Zinging

Zach chilling among the tall trees!

We also have some fun behind the scenes action as we usually do.  Snapchat is being weird but we have our Facebook Live broadcast which is a lot of fun!  Take a look:

And now let’s get to the rest of the highlighted photos:

Zinging

Just relaxing on a log – we were having a pretty chill time.

Zinging

And we’ll leave you with one more!

Zinging

Good stuff – Zach looking good up close and personal!

And there you have it – we zinged around the woods with Zach and got some fantastic shots!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

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!

Oh Olivia We Love Ya And Your Senior Pictures Are Fantastic!

Oh Olivia we love ya!!!  We have loved this senior pretty much since we met her – she’s cool, smart, athletic, nice, pretty on the inside and out – the whole package!  You may remember that she kicked off the spokesmodel sessions for the class of 2018 with some shots that have already solidified themselves as iconic shots in Frameable Faces lore!

Oh Olivia!

So needless to say we were excited to get her in front of Ally’s camera again this time outside in a gorgeous setting and the results are stunning as we knew they would be!  Since we were exclusively in the studio the first time around we went totally on location this time joined by Olivia’s awesome mom Liz, and……wow!  

Oh Olivia

Love it – the blue shirt and the blue eyes! 

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

At this point we focused on some of the pretty colors we found – plenty of purple, green and yellow goldenrod like this one:

Oh Olivia

Love that – and that lighting is perfect!  Olivia looks amazing.

We also have more behind the scenes from our replay of our YouTube Live broadcast – such a cool spot on the bridge…

And the sublime result…

Oh Olivia

What a session…  and we’ll leave you with this one last photo:

Oh Olivia

Amazing!!! Oh Olivia we love ya for sure!!!  And we hope you all enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!
