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!

Twin Seniors Part 2! This Time It’s Shoshie Fo Sho!

As promised we present Part 2 of yesterday’s Twin Senior highlights!!!  Yesterday the focus was on Hallie, and today it’s Shoshie FO SHO!!!  Haha!  Loving the results from the day we spent with these two and their mom Caryn – we laughed a lot that day and the girls were rock stars!

Shoshie Fo Sho!

The focus for both girls was the summer style portraits on location in a natural setting so today will be more of the same awesomeness, and we’ll start with this one on the edge of the Quarton Lake dock in Birmingham:

Shoshie Fo Sho

She looks great!  A little backlight and great conditions that day too!

The next pose shows a playful side of Shoshie – much fun!

Shoshie Fo Sho

Love it!

We also have the behind the scenes live stream from Facebook for you – the YouTube Live broadcast is in Hallie’s post.

With twins we have plenty of time to roam around and hit different spots and here’s one of Shoshie in the stream…Shoshie Fo Sho

Love her reflection in the water too!

One more of Shoshie close up….

Shoshie Fo Sho

So pretty – and one of the girls together in the water….!

Shoshie Fo Sho

So adorable!!!

So there you have it!  Twin seniors, twin blog posts, twin highlights – double the fun, and we hoped you enjoyed the photos!

Twin Seniors! First Up Let’s Say Hello To Hallie, Shall We?

Twin seniors are a delight to photograph for lots of reasons.  One example off the top is for starters there is usually no problem with getting comfortable being in front of the camera because they have each other to laugh with and take the edge off.  Now to be clear it’s not that there’s usually a problem with that – we have a consultation ahead of time to meet our seniors, get to know them, and design the session around them and their style, but with twins there’s that added connection between them which usually makes for much fun.  Now, throw in the fact that we already know Hallie and Shoshie (they are friends of our Lacey) and that they’re smart, hilarious and adorable and we’ve got a winner of a day!  We’ll call this part 1 and focus on Hallie first, and then we’ll give Shoshie her own blog post – in alphabetical order (plus Hallie is older) – ha!  But we’ll be sure to sneak in a twin shot too…

Hello To Hallie

We focused exclusively on location for the girls in Birmingham, and their mom Caryn came along.  We had lots of laughs, good conditions outside and the girls did a fine job!  Let’s take a look at Hallie who was game to jump right in if you see what I mean…  lol! Hallie

Love the in-the-water shot!

Next we have this fantastic close up:

Hallie

One nice aspect of summer sessions at Quarton Lake is that there’s plenty of wild flowers to be found and they make for a gorgeous shot like this one of Hallie:

Hallie

Beautiful!!!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from our live broadcasts – we’ll show one of those here from YouTube Live and you’ll just have to check back for Shoshie’s highlights to see the video from Facebook Live (although it’s not hard to scroll and find on our page).

And we’ll leave you with one more of Hallie…..

Hallie

….and one of the twins together!

Hallie

So there you have it!  An awesome day with these girls and Hallie rocked her photos!  So did Shoshie – stay tuned…..!

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!
