Our Own Senior Tony Takes on the Big Apple and The Brooklyn Bridge!

Time to share some photos from our very own senior who makes us so proud! It’s Tony Time! We’re actually not even done with Tony yet – as with Lacey we’re kinda taking advantage of being the photographers for our own kids senior pics.  We’ve already done a spokesmodel session with him and there will probably be one more session for Tony.  But in the meantime we decided that New York City could be a cool location for Tony’s session, and more specifically the Brooklyn Bridge! We’d never actually walked across it before so we thought we would give it a shot. It was certainly a little tricky – lots of people to navigate but we got it done. We also hit a couple spots in Westchester County on the Hudson River and in a forest. We’re pretty pumped to share these so let’s get to it:

Tony On The Brooklyn Bridge!

We actually parked in Brooklyn so we could photograph towards Manhattan and it was a little busy and a little chilly but our lighting was great (a great sundown orange sky and off camera flash) and we got some great photos!

Brooklyn Bridge

Looking good with Lady Liberty against the orange sky…

We also have plenty of fun behind the scenes and you’ll see how hectic it was for us!  First from Facebook:

Here’s a cool one where you really get a nice view of the bridge with our guy:

Brooklyn Bridge

Here’s some more behind the scenes from the Instagram broadcast…

We were staying with friends in Westchester County on this trip and the next day we headed up to a couple scenic spots in the woods and on the Hudson River.  First at Dobbs Ferry…

Brooklyn Bridge

We also have a few Snapchat highlights where you can get a sense of the scenic spot on the Hudson River!

We’ll leave you with one more close up in another natural setting:

Brooklyn BridgeSo there you have it!  A very cool experience for us to be able to get these awesome shots of our own in New York!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time in the Big Apple!

Calling Audibles With Andrew For Awesome Senior Picture Results!

Andrew knows how to call audibles – he was the quarterback at Bloomfield Hills High School and a teammate of our Tony, and we watched him grow and develop into a fine player through hard work.  He’s a great kid, and an audible if you didn’t know is basically the decision to adapt and change your plan depending on the circumstances – such as what the defense is presenting before the play during a game, or the weather and timing on a photo session perhaps.  In our case we improvised for some textures instead of going into a city setting and we were able to get into the locker room at BHHS for a couple cool photos and to warm up since it was freezing outside.  BUT we still got the nighttime bleacher photo that we wanted so it all worked out to be a winning session!
 

Audibles With Andrew

 

Let’s start in the studio with a dapper formal picture:

Audible

Stylin’!

We also have some behind the scenes – first with Instagram Live from the studio in uniform:

We switched up from formal to uniform and back again for both in studio and on location – audibles remember?  Let’s head over to the school at this point but first with another stylish up close pic before we get into game gear!

Audible
Looking great!
 
At this point we headed into the locker room and we’ve got more behind the scenes from Facebook Live this time:
 

…and the result:
Audible
Andrew totally looks ready to go out and do battle….and we’ll stay with the football look for one of our faves to do – we’ve only done this a few times ever and each time it’s killer…
 
Audible
 
And there you have it!  We enjoyed watching Andrew on the field this past season with the rest of the Blackhawks – they all made us proud, and we had a great time creating these images and calling audibles with Andrew!  We hoped you enjoyed the highlights!

Just A Solid Senior Session With A Solid Guy – Say Hello To Eric!

We’ve known Eric for a while – not that long, but long enough to know he’s a solid guy.   That’s the best word really – just solid you know?  He’s been a Bloomfield Hills Blackhawk football teammate of our Tony for 4 seasons but we really started to get to know Eric best over the last year or so, so we were really pleased to have him here at the studio with his parents Kimberly and Vince for some straightforward, low key and yeah, just solid pics for his senior session.  He’s got a great head on his shoulders, knows he wants to be in law enforcement and just the kind of guy you would want your kid hanging with.

Solid Guy Eric

This session took place completely in the studio and we started on the grey paper backdrop:

Solid Guy

Dapper – digging that business casual look!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the broadcast on Facebook Live:

A couple more on the grey – including this super cool classic shot in black and white:

Solid Guy

Looks great.

And another close up in color…

Solid Guy

At this point we switched to the black background and we’ll leave you with this full length image:

Solid Guy

Just solid as we said!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time in the studio with Eric!

Ben Is A Baller – On The Pitch, In The City and On His Senior Session!

Yes Ben plays soccer and he’s a baller – but we think that applies to more than just how he plays on the pitch.  We’ve known Ben and his family for a long time and he’s a good dude – you could say being a baller is just an overall description of this guy.  Good kid, involved in the community, athlete, student – he’s got it all, and we had a lot of fun with him and his mom Leigh on his senior session!

Ben Is A Baller

We started on location and headed over to Bloomfield Hills High School first to get a few photos of Ben in his gear – this is a great one!

Baller

Bad ass…

As usual we have some fun behind the scenes from the day starting with the replay of our broadcast on Facebook Live:

Time now for a change in location over to downtown Birmingham first with this cool close up:

Baller

And how about this one with the city lights and the Birmingham Theater marquee!

Baller

At this point we headed back to the studio to finish up once we ran out of daylight and we’ll leave you with this portrait of our guy:

Baller

Awesome!  We also have the behind the scenes Snapchat story for you – the filters are missing for some weird reason but it’s still plenty fun!


 

And there you have it – Ben is a baller and he delivered on an awesome senior session!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Ever Loving Emma In An Epic and Sprawling Senior Session!

We are ever loving Emma for sure in this senior session! It was one like very few others… across multiple locations, inclement weather that we ultimately worked to our great advantage, outfits, styles, settings – it was epic and sprawling and we loved all of it!  We also love Emma’s mom Lija – we had so much fun with the two of them!  The funny thing is we actually snapped a photo of Emma at prom with her date and our Lacey and her date over a year ago and hadn’t even realized it when they called to book her senior pics!  Like it was meant to be!

Ever Loving Emma

So let’s start with the first day in the studio on the red couch…

Ever Loving Emma

Love that!  Gorgeous and a fun playful photo of Emma!

We also have some behind the scenes fun first from a Facebook Live broadcast from the studio…

Next we headed to the ice to get this fabulous photo… these are always a fun challenge – usually with me walking out on to the ice with the off camera flash trying not to wipeout lol!

Ever Loving Emma

So graceful!

Day 2

After a rainout we rescheduled at a private location that we DO have available for future photo sessions if our clients request it and what a spot!  AND we had a perfect day with big beautiful snowflakes falling and no wind…  we started in the hayloft – check out the behind the scenes:

And here’s the result!

Ever Loving Emma

SO COOL!!!

Emma spotted a swing on the property and we jumped on it so to speak… we’ll finish with that photo!

Ever Loving Emma

How cute is she?

Lastly we’re going to leave you with the snapchat story with highlights from both days!

And there it is – ever loving Emma indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day(s) with her!!!

Could Mackenzie’s Senior Session Be More Marvelous? We Say No!

Mackenzie is definitely marvelous.  She’s marvelous looking, and more importantly she’s a marvelous person!  We love this girl – and it’s not surprising, she’s friends with some of our faves at Bloomfield Hills High and came highly recommended!  Ha!  Mackenzie and her mom Meghan came to the studio for her session and just like the girl, the results from this session are marvelous!

Getting Marvelous With Mackenzie

We started in the studio for just a few photos and we’ll share one to kick it off here on the black background:

Marvelous

Um, wow. 

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

 

At this point we headed outside to get the bulk of the photos on location.  We’ll start with this wall surface that we like a lot for a nice chill image:

Marvelous

How adorable is she?

Next we trekked to a little footbridge that we like in a more natural setting:

Marvelous

Love it!!!

We changed locations one more time and we have a little more fun behind the scenes from Instagram before we leave you with one more marvelous stunner of our girl:

Marvelous

Perfection!  Marvelous!

Yes as we said in the title, this session with Mackenzie couldn’t be more marvelous, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

We Had A Double Eagle Of A Senior Session With Sheldon!

A double eagle is rare in golf and it’s a truly excellent result, so we’re going to score our senior session with Sheldon this way!  It was EPIC.  Besides, we’ve known Sheldon since kindergarten when he and our Tony were in class together so this was another surreal session for us.

Double Eagle With Sheldon…

Sheldon’s dad Eric joined us and we had much fun and a great game plan.  We started in the studio with some fire with Sheldon’s clubs and his shoes!  We’ll highlight one of those to start with:

Double Eagle

Sweeeeeet….

We also have some fun behind the scenes action for you first from the Facebook Live broadcast we did in the studio:

At this point we headed out – first for a stop at the house to get a photo with the pups!

Double Eagle

Haha!!!  That’s a fun one.

We then headed over to Franklin Hills for a few photos on the golf course – what a great setting!  Sheldon is on the golf team at Roeper High and you can just see the focus in his swing here!

Double Eagle

Fore!!!

We have some more behind the scenes too from the Instagram Live for the last outfit change we’ll show here:

And the result….
Double Eagle
Great one to finish with!  A double eagle session with Sheldon indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

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:

Municipal

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!

Holy Moly It’s Magnificence With Maddy On Her Senior Session!

Magnificence is defined as “the state of being strikingly beautiful or impressive”.  So, yeah sure we’ll go with that since it’s uh……SPOT ON with this girl!!!  Maddy is indeed an impressive young lady!  We’ve known her for a long time and this is actually the second time she’s appeared on our blog going back to the time of her Bat Mitzvah!  She’s also a legacy as a senior since her older sis Haley was also a Frameable senior so we were looking forward to this one.

Magnificence With Maddy

We were ultimately joined by the whole fam – proud parents Donna and Stuart joined, Haley cruised home from Ann Arbor, and the pup and grandpa all showed up – we love a fun family outing!  We mainly photographed around the West Bloomfield City Hall where there is a ton of spots to use including this awesome burning bush you’ve seen here before.  Maddy rocked it!

Magnificence

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the day – first with the replay of the Instagram Live:

Even Missy the pup got in on the action – a girl and her dog!

Magnificence

Okay how CUTE is that?

Here we have a stunningly magnificent image of Maddy just up close and personal:

Magnificence

Gorgeous!

We also have a little more behind the scenes from Facebook Live for you:

And we’ll leave you with one more with some beautiful backlight:

Magnificence

Wow! 

And there you have it – magnificence with Maddy indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time 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!
