Our Last Detroit Senior Session Of The Fall Season – A Stellar One With Seth!

We still have some seniors to photograph but we’ll call this one with Seth the last one of the fall season in Detroit and it’s a STELLAR one to end on!  Granted it was a cold windy day, but it was dry and we were able to get fantastic results.  Seth is very go with the flow and he was a trooper with the weather!  He’s got a good head on his shoulders and we had a great day with him and his mom Bridget!

Stellar Seth

We started in the studio with a few quick formal photos on the grey – here’s one:

Stellar

GQ!!!!

Then it was time to head downtown and we started on Belle Isle – here’s one with the skyline in the distance!

Next we found a bridge that we’ve never used before – it’s SO cool and it will henceforth be known as Seth’s bridge because that’s how we roll!  Here’s the behind the scenes on that from Instagram:

And one of the results…

Stellar

Love that shot!!!

We also headed over to Eastern Market to grab some pics with the murals and here’s the behind the scenes from that on Facebook LIVE:

And we’ll leave you with this one:

Stud!

And there you have it!  A stellar session with Seth in the D and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!  A great one to end on…….for now!

We’re Seriously Smitten With Sedona’s Senior Pictures!

We have known Sedona since she was a baby and this is at least the third time she’s been on our blog!  She’s beautiful, smart, funny, snarky, and we are smitten with her senior session!!!  She was a spokesmodel for us this year for Walled Lake Northern and we were excited to get her in front of Ally’s camera once again!  Her mom Rachel who is one of our dear friends joined us for a fun day in Detroit, so let’s get to some highlights!

Smitten With Sedona

We actually spent the entire session on Belle Isle which has so many amazing spots to photograph, and this was the first time we headed to Sunset Point for this awesome shot of Sedona against the Detroit skyline!

Smitten

Just beautiful!

We also have some fun behind the scenes first from Facebook LIVE:

Next we headed over to the red bridge for this stunner…

Smitten

Love it.

Moving around the island we stopped in at the conservatory and here’s a little video from Instagram

And at that point we headed over to the covered bridge for a few:

Smitten

We love that spot, but this next one was almost an afterthought – one of those “hang on – go stand by that tree” photos that we hadn’t planned on.  It turned out to be the last photo of the day and it’s outstanding…

Smitten

Do you see?  Do you see why we’re smitten with Sedona’s session?  We’re just smitten with Sedona period – love this girl, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Twinning and Winning – Part 2 – We Are On The Shane Train!

In yesterday’s post Twinning and Winning – Part 1 – And We Ain’t Lyin’ About Ryann! we went all Ladies First with Ryann’s highlights with a twin pic of Ryann and Shane together mixed in.  Today we reverse it and get on the Shane Train!!!  Shane is a good dude and he was a trooper on these two days in Detroit taking all these pics with his sis!  We had a great time with these two and here are more of the highlights!

On The Shane Train

We’ll start with one of our favorite mosaic murals in Eastern Market:

Shane Train

Looking good!!!

Here’s one from Belle Isle with a pretty cool composition – an angle we hadn’t used before:

Shane Train

We posted a photo from the cool ivy wall we found in Detroit yesterday of Ryann, and here’s some behind the scenes of that spot from Facebook Live:

And a result with Shane:

Shane Train

Pretty cool huh?

We grabbed this black and white on the Wayne State campus – big fans of how this one turned out:

Shane Train

Our last spot was by a very cool sculpture – also a somewhat random find…  and here’s the behind the scenes from Instagram:

And we’ll leave you with one of those of the twins together!

Shane Train

Love them!

You can see why we weren’t lyin’ about Ryann yesterday and why we are on the Shane Train today!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with these two!!!

Twinning and Winning – Part 1 – And We Ain’t Lyin’ About Ryann!

What an epic senior session(s) odyssey we embarked on with twins Ryann and Shane!!!  In this post we’ll go ladies first – we love this girl and we ain’t lyin….about Ryann!!!  What a sweetheart and the two of them are pretty hilarious together we have to say.  Definitely a twin bond that you can feel.  We’re going to focus on some individual photos of Ryann here and some individuals of Shane tomorrow but with one together in each post.  These two are legacies too since we photographed older brother Ian from the class of 2019!

Twinning & Winning & ain’t lyin’ about Ryann…

We went to Detroit with these two – twice!  The plan with their parents Faith and John was to make sure we had plenty of opportunities to get as many pics as we needed in as many spots as necessary with some of them individually and some together.  We all felt that we didn’t want to be rushed, and this allowed us to break it up without going on a marathon day long shoot.  So you’ll see some photos mixed in here from both days!

Here’s a little behind the scenes to give you a taste of the first day in Eastern Market before we get to a few higlights from Facebook Live:

Now some highlights of Ryann’s pics!

Ryann

Just stunning!!!  We had a decent amount of wind at that point but it works to nice effect on Ryann’s hair above!  Lots of color in and around Eastern Market as well and Ryann Rocked it.  Here’s another one…

Ryann

Love the black on the black wall…

Here’s one from day two on a random ivy covered wall I just spotted as we were driving by…

Ryann

Love it.  That wall won’t be so random for us anymore!

And one more in this outfit on the Wayne State Campus which is really nice…

Ryann

Now let’s bring Shane into the picture (pun intended) for this fun twin pic:

Ryann

 

Awesome!!!  Twinning and winning indeed and you can see we weren’t lyin’ about Ryann!  We had so much fun with these two and we hope you enjoyed part 1 of the highlights!  Part two is the next post!

Emma Elevates The Senior Picture Game In Detroit!

We love Emma.  She is just a burst of personality and total adorable-ness, and on top of that she’s clearly my spirit animal – we totally bonded over American history and that’s pretty much what we talked about while her mom Tara and Ally sat and watched during her consultation.  We decided we’re going to go for coffee and talk about history one day lol!  To that end, Emma had a plan for her love of books to be a part of her senior session and she had scoped out the venerable John K King Bookstore in Detroit as an essential locale in our plan – she even contacted the store where they were more than accommodating in letting us photograph there!  This turned out to be the beginning of an EPIC day that ended up at our fave Chili Mustard Onions for dinner!  So let’s get to what happened at the bookstore and more highlights in between as Emma Elevates the senior picture game!

Emma Elevates

John K King is a massive bookstore of used books that you MUST visit if you haven’t before.  Here’s the behind the scenes Facebook LIVE broadcast where you can tell how giddy we were about photographing there!

And one of the results…

Emma Elevates

How beautiful!  Emma looks amazing and it’s just such a cool photo that really captures a big part of who she is.

From there we headed over to Belle Isle where Emma and Tara had another great prop in store….

Emma Elevates

How fun is the bicycle and the flowers in the basket?  The sky opened up right after this photo with a blast of rain as we scurried back to the car to wait it out.  We just lucked out on that… it didn’t last long and it left behind a gorgeous rainbow in the sky.

We headed over to the edge of the island to get a skyline photo of Detroit and this one with the off-camera flash is awesome – it’s just more of Emma elevating…

Emma Elevates

Last but not least we headed over to Eastern Market for the murals and there’s a funny fruit mural Emma likes a lot so we used that one.  Here’s the behind the scenes from Instagram LIVE (including a “Tara takeover” where Tara took over the broadcast)!

And here is the fun result!
 
Emma Elevates
Adorable!!!
 
And there you have it! Emma Elevates indeed – she slayed on this day!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Adin (and Detroit) Versus Everybody On An Awesome Senior Session!

Adin is a great dude and he has totally fit right in – we love hanging with this guy and we have been honored to have him representing our studio for the class of 2020 from Frankel Jewish Academy!  When we photographed him for his spokesmodel session back in May he was solo, but this time for our trip to Detroit he had his mom Nancy join us and she’s a lot of fun!  “Detroit Versus Everybody” is symbolic of how Detroit came back after many assumed the city was all but dead and now it’s thriving!  We celebrate that when seniors say they want to head downtown for photos and we had a great day down there with Adin and Nancy so let’s get to some highlights!

Adin Versus Everybody!

We headed first to Belle Isle where we got one of the Detroit skyline poses that we love…

Versus Everybody

So cool!

We spent quite a bit of time on Belle Isle where there is much to see, including one of our favorite bridges:

Versus Everybody

What a pic – Adin looks GREAT.

We also headed to a cool bridge that we’ve used a few times and we have some behind the scenes action – first on Facebook:

…and the result:

Versus Everybody

We hit a couple more spots as well including this one along the Riverwalk – here’s some more behind the scenes this time from Instagram:

From there we headed over to the Belt alley to get a couple more to wrap it up and here’s a cool one with a mural as a backdrop:

Versus Everybody

Love it!

What a cool day – Adin versus everybody ladies and gentlemen!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Latoiya Looks Lovely In Boudoir Photos Featured On Fox 2 Detroit!

By now if you follow us on social media or subscribe to our newsletter there’s a pretty good chance you have caught the feature on Fox 2 Detroit that they did on us and boudoir photography.  We have posted photos from the other two sessions highlighted in that piece here on the blog, and here is the third!  Latoiya did a fantastic job in her interview and she looks lovely indeed in these photos!  Boudoir photos are often done on location for privacy, but we did some in the studio for this feature and as you’ll see below the crew from Fox 2 was actually here while we photographed one.  As a side note they ran this feature three times – the first time they misspelled Latoiya’s name which you’ll see here, but they actually corrected it when they ran it the next two times!  Here is the feature before we get to the photos:

Latoiya Looks Lovely…

Meanwhile Latoiya mentioned in the piece about wondering if you’ve “lost it” after you’ve had kids and how boudoir can give you the confidence that you haven’t lost it at all – which she most certainly has not!!!  She looks fabulous!

Latoiya Looks Lovely

Beautiful!

Here’s a few more:

Latoiya Looks Lovely

Latoiya Looks Lovely

Latoiya Looks Lovely

Latoiya looks lovely indeed – boudoir is fun, sexy and empowering!  We love what Latoiya said at the end that “hopefully all women can see that it’s nothing to be ashamed of or looked down upon – that it’s to build us up!”
