Starting To Think That All Ali / Ally / Aly’s Are Adorable – We LOVE This Ali!

Ali and Ally as it turns out seem to be kindred spirits, and we both fell in love with this adorable Ali – seems it’s an Ali / Ally thing and you might not understand.  Although it’s easy to explain when you meet someone who is smart, funny, and bursting with personality like this Ali whom we photographed in Detroit for senior pictures!  Her mom Amy joined us for this wonderful day downtown and we even wrapped it up with some yummy eats at Laika Dog!  But it’s the pictures we’re here for, so let’s get to the highlights!

We LOVE This Ali

Ali

That smile!!!!

Ali

Okay…. so she’s ADORABLE, and that backlight with the flowers?  A hall of fame pic.  We have some behind the scenes too first from Instagram:

She just makes us grin from ear to ear.

From there we headed to Belle Isle and the sun was setting… check this out:

Ali

Pretty cool…

From there we finished up at Eastern Market and we have some more behind the scenes this time from Facebook:

…and here’s the result with some more off-camera flash:

Ali

LOVE!  Yassss it’s something about those Ally / Aly / Ali’s right?  Our Ally loved photographing this Ali and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her in Detroit!

Good Karma With Kamari On Her Senior Session In Detroit!

Kamari is literally an anagram of karma with a fun “i” on the end, and if karma is the sum of your energy from your actions then yes, Kamari has good karma judging by the result of this awesome session in Detroit!  We actually knew this already because it’s not the first or even the second time Kamari has been in front of Ally’s camera!  The first time was when she was little for some family pics, and the second time was as a spokesmodel for us for the class of 2022!  She comes from a great family, her dad Jahmal joined us in Detroit for this session & mom Kimberly made an appearance at the studio as well!  We love these guys.  So let’s get to the highlights!

Good Karma With Kamari

We started at the Detroit Institute Of Arts which is a great spot:

Good Karma

She looks amazing!

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

Next we headed over to Eastern Market which is where we spent the rest of the session really – and we got great stuff…
Good Karma
That magenta / pink – what a great background for her!
 
This is where part of that karma kicks in – anytime we find a new spot at a location we’ve been to many times that’s a big deal for us, and we never really noticed this one dead end as an option.  Jahmal gets most of the credit – we think he was the one who pointed it out (?).
 
Good Karma
So cool!
 
Lots of little nooks and crannies in this area and we have a little more behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram:

Garth Was Stylin’ For His Headshots…and His Cars!

Garth is the man.  We love this guy – he came to the studio for some new headshots and we combined it with a couple of location pics for him with his cars!  We were a little nervous about the weather forecast but we lucked out and it was a perfect day!  Let’s start on location with Garth’s sweet Dodge Challenger!

Garth Was Stylin’

Garth

DETROIT MUSCLE!!!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from Facebook with Garth and his Wrangler:

At this point we headed back to the studio for a couple professional headshots!

Garth

Dapper Dude.

A couple of wardrobe changes here – a little more casual….

Garth

And one more!

Garth

And there you have it!  We had a blast with Garth and we’re glad to know him!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with him!

Jumping Into The Class Of 2022 With Jordyn In Detroit!

The official senior sessions of the class of 2022 have begun and we are quite excited to be jumping into it with Jordyn!  We’ve known Jordyn and her fam for many years and she is awesome.  Adorable and sharp as a knife – we could hang out with her and her mom Jodi all day,  and that’s what we did!  We also LUCKED OUT because the weather was perfect during our session, followed by a deluge that even flooded much of the mall that evening (everything’s fine and the water didn’t make it to our door) so this sesh was meant to be!

Let’s get to the highlights…

Jumping Into the Class of 2022 with Jordyn

Let’s also give a shout out to Mandy Rose Studio for Jordyn’s makeup (done by Yasmine) which looked fantastic.  We started out at Belle Isle and actually spent the majority of our time there…

Jordyn

LOVE HER

One more from this spot up close!

Jordyn

We even have some fun behind the scenes from the day with a “Jodi Takeover” – it’s been a bit since we had a mom do that – may have to bring more of those back!  Ha!

One more from the island…

Jordyn

How adorable is she?  At this point we headed over to Eastern Market to get a couple with some murals – this could be our fave of those:

Jordyn

Pretty in pink!

We’ll also leave you with a little more behind the scenes with a TikTok recap!

@frameablefacesWhat a day in #Detroit with @jordyn.tepper for #SeniorPictures! ❤️🏙Love her! #ClassOf2022 #photoshoot #FrameableFaces #photography #SeniorYear #2022♬ original sound – Frameable Faces

So there you have it!  We had so much fun with Jordyn!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Sammy Cooks Up Some Killer Pics For His Spokesmodel Session!

Obvi with that title amirite?  Yep – Sammy is a talented dude – he tore it up on Master Chef Junior a few years back and it’s pretty nice to have a great chef in the family – we know because he’s our nephew!  Obviously he’s been on our blog before like this post of the highlights of his bar mitzvah, and of course we are delighted to have him representing our studio for Berkley High School for the class of 2022 and this is one of those surreal sessions for us to see him as a rising high school senior!

Sammy Cooks Up Some Killer Pics

We went with Sammy to Detroit and of course his mom Stacy joined us – we went to Eastern Market where you can get all the ingredients you need!

Sammy Cooks

Plenty of great murals down there!

We also have some behind the scenes for you first from Facebook Live:

Let’s take a look at one more of the man on a mural… 

Sammy Cooks

At this point Sam’s future was getting so bright he had to wear shades.

Sammy Cooks

From there we headed over to Belle Isle and as it turned out we were pretty limited because they were setting up for the Grand Prix, but when you’re forced to explore a little you find a new spot like this one – here’s the behind the scenes from Instagram this time:

Rikki In The City – Splendid Spokesmodeling For The Class Of 2022!

Rikki in the city doesn’t rhyme, but it has a ring to it, and this session should ring out across Frameable Faces nation!!!  Hehe….  it really was fabulous.  We’re off to a darn good start with our class of 2022 crew and this was a session of firsts for us.  A couple new spots for us in particular that we really love!

As for this senior-to-be we really love her too – she’s a Bloomfield Hills Blackhawk like our kids were, and her mom Lauren is North Farmington Raider just like me and Ally were!  Rikki is a delight and she slayed the game as we say on this session in Detroit, so let’s get to the highlights!

Rikki In The City

We started at the DIA – people were out taking photos and everyone was happy and friendly!  Here’s a highlight:

Rikki

As always we have some fun behind the scenes action from the session – first from Facebook Live:

Shortly after and an outfit change later we found new spot #1 – we took a different route than usual and noticed this amazing wall – LOVE it!

Rikki

Okay Rikki is adorable.  This girl is going to change the world… and we have more behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram Live

Next we headed to a grungy alley and by this time you could say we were smokin’….

Rikki

Last but not least it’s another new spot for us – a random friendly dude pointed us to a bench down a path by the water and voila!

Rikki

Beautiful!!!  That’s a good one to end on for now, although the TikTok is pretty cool too…..okay we’ll add it:

@frameablefacesWhat. A. Day. w/@rikkiaronoff for her spokesmodel sesh!🥰🏙 ##FrameableFaces ##ClassOf2022 ##Detroit ##photoshoot ##MetroDetroit ##Photography ##SeniorPics♬ original sound – Frameable Faces

A Maddie Takeover in Detroit for Senior Pictures!

We had a Maddie takeover in the D!  You’ve seen Maddie on this blog before as a spokesmodel representing Mercy High School for the senior class of 2021 and her return was epic!  Yes it was a little cold but we literally had downtown Detroit to ourselves early on this particular Saturday morning and we made the most of it! 

Maddie Takeover In The D

We started over by the Fox Theater which is appropriate since Maddie is into theater herself!  Check it out:

Maddie Takeover

Cool huh?  She’s a box office star to be…

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

Next we headed over to The Belt which was also empty and got this photo:

Maddie Takeover

Okay she’s adorable.

Next stop: the DIA!

Maddie Takeover

Love it!

We have more behind the scenes too – this time from Instagram:

Jackie Paige Stops By For Some Headshots and Some Fun!

We had the pleasure this past week of photographing the talented and wonderful voice of WWJ Newsradio 950’s PM Drive Anchor Jackie Paige!  Her story is well known here in Metro Detroit and she has plenty of fans for good reason – she’s a real pro and you should tune in in the afternoons on AM 950.  We’ve known Jackie for a bit since our sons played lacrosse and football together in high school, but this was the first time we had a real extended hangout and we really connected.  She’s fun and nice and she looked fantastic – she needed a few new headshots and while we were at it we went with some fun glam as well!  Let’s take a look at a few highlights!

Headshots with Jackie Paige

We started with the professional pics and Jackie had the red power suit going – she looked great!

Jackie Paige

We have some behind the scenes fun as well – first from Facebook – the end is hilarious but don’t worry we added that to the TikTok as well if you scroll further…

Here’s one more from the professional side…

Jackie Paige

Now let’s get to the GLAM!

Jackie Paige

Channeling her inner supermodel!  And that dress!  Gorgeous.

And one more with the blowy look!

Jackie Paige

WOW right?  She’s a beauty.

Here’s the TikTok with the epic sign off….hehe!

Bree In The D! Detroit Vibes With This Beauty for Senior Pictures!

Bree gave us a day to remember in Detroit with a spectacular session in the city!  We’ve known Bree’s mom Heather for many years and we had a blast with the two of them!  Bree is a class of 2021 senior at Walled Lake Western and she’s a multitalented girl – smart, nice, athletic and beautiful!  The whole package.  Let’s check out some highlights of our day with her!

Bree In The D!

So actually we’re going to start in the studio where we began the session before we headed downtown with this photo against the black backdrop:

Bree

Love it!

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

At this point it was time to head to Detroit!  We spent some time on Belle Isle where we got this next one – we just love the willows there:
 
Bree
Gorgeous!
 
Next stop, the Riverfront…  and we have more behind the scenes this time from Instagram:

Last stop, Eastern Market where this nighttime photo with one of our favorite murals is just the bomb diggity…
 
Bree
So cool, and Bree really rocked it!
