Bringing home the class of 2024 senior spokesmodel crew with the dudes! Anthony crushed it – you might even say he was on FIRE!!! We weren’t surprised – Anthony is a great kid and we go wayyyyyy back with his parents. His dad John and Doug were football teammates at Michigan so we’re talking 35 years… pretty surreal to have Anthony here representing the Catholic Central Shamrocks for our spokesmodel team! His mom Lynne joined us at the studio for these epic photos – let’s get to them…
Fiery Antics With Anthony
Anthony is a student athlete and he works hard at his craft whether on the gridiron or in the shot put and discus circles (and especially in the weight room) and we wanted to capture that grit and badassery so….
Like we said…..dude was on FIRE!!!
Here’s some fun behind the scenes as well first from Facebook:
After the flames died down we got to the business of capturing more angles of our guy’s personality of which he has plenty!
We also changed backdrops to get a few on the white – our seniors typically try out plenty of different looks, backdrops, and locations too! Here’s some more behind the scenes from Instagram:
Aiden came to us by way of his mom Kelly whom we’ve known for many years – I (Doug) worked with Kelly and we were in the M.B.A. program at Wayne State together! We’ve been friends a long time and it was really cool to hang with her and her son for his senior pics! Aiden is a Catholic Central Shamrock – a football player and shot put / discus thrower for the track team – just a great kid (not that I’m surprised)!!! We had a pretty neat game plan for him including some studio work, some FIRE, and some location photos at the CC campus, so let’s get to some highlights!
We started in the studio for a formal look on the black background:
That’s a good looking dude!
Next we decided to get some track and field action and some FIRE!!! This was the first time we photographed discus fire!
We also have some behind the scenes fun from this photo on Instagram!
This had to be one of our favorite sessions of all time, and I’m not just saying that. We did some stuff we haven’t done which was really fun (more on that later), and of course the people help make a session so when you put it all together it was an epic journey with Jimmy for sure! Jimmy’s parents Dar and Jimmy are awesome – we laughed a lot on this session and Ally has known Dar for several years, but we hadn’t hung out with her hubby before and we all just clicked. As for Jimmy the CC Shamrock class of 2021 senior, what a nice kid. A student athlete and a pleasure to hang out with. We started in the studio and then headed down to Detroit – check out these highlights:
Journey With Jimmy In Detroit
As I said we started in the studio so let’s do that before we head downtown…
Digging the long crop on that with the CC jersey and the flaming stick! So cool – now as you probably know that’s not the stuff we hadn’t done before…
We also have some behind the scenes fun from Facebook:
At this point we headed to Detroit…..and we broke out the smoke grenades!!!!!
Okay how cool is the blue smoke with the blue letterjacket? Even the street itself is cool… and of course the SENIOR is cool!
We hit a few more spots including Eastern Market:
And here are more behind the scenes this time from Instagram:
VIKTORIOUS!!! That’s how we all felt after our day – Viktor, his parents & Ally and me! Such a cool class of 2020 senior session with plenty of stuff we did on a whim and it all worked out! From boutiques and restaurants around Birmingham who were more than happy to let us come in and take pics like Churchill’s and Teacups & Toys, a Pet Boutique, to great weather and just generally exploring, it was a flawless outing! Viktor is a cool dude too which we knew – we’ve photographed him with the whole family and he hung out on big brother Maksim’s session too – so we were looking forward to this one with mom Susie and dad Mike whom I go back with over 40 years!
VIKTORIOUS WITH VIKTOR…
We focused on location photos for Viktor in Birmingham so let’s get to the highlights:
This one looks so cool in black and white – Viktor is the man!
We also have some fun behind the scenes on this one first from the Instagram Livestream – check it out!
Let’s get to a few more:
Such a cool spot with the ivy covered building!!!
The marquee of the Birmingham Theater is a pretty cool backdrop too. Viktor crushed it.
Last but not least, we asked the folks at Churchill’s if we could come in and shoot and they were more than accommodating! It was around 11 AM so it was well before the lunch crowd and we were in and out pretty fast. We have photographed in the West Bloomfield location as well just across the street from our studio and they are really nice there. Great big humidor and selection of spirits and a wonderful menu in Birmingham – highly recommended. Here’s the behind the scenes from Facebook Live:
…..and the result:
SO cool right?
Yes a VIKTORIOUS day was had indeed, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!
