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!!!

Kristen Is Our First Falcon And She Represented In Style!

It’s pretty hard to believe that after basically 9 years of photographing seniors that we never photographed a Farmington Falcon!  So finally……enter Kristen!  Kristen came to us as a cousin of some former seniors of ours and we were pretty excited to keep the chain going and get some Falcon love on our blog!  Kristen was a perfect first Falcon too, so let’s get to it!

First Falcon…

Kristen had a little entourage for her session here at the studio and her lovely mom Jordon met us downtown for the location shoot at Eastern Market as well – much fun!  After a quick few shots in the studio we stopped at a park in Farmington before we headed downtown and that’s where we’ll pick up the action:

First Falcon

Nice!!!

We also have some behind the scenes fun as usual from there in a Facebook Live replay:

At this point we headed downtown and we were actually a little nervous because it rained on the way down – it was NOT supposed to!  But we lucked out – the weather held once we got down there and we were able to get some great shots.  Not to mention an overcast sky can really work to your advantage anyway because the light is nice and diffused.

First Falcon

Love that…

Here’s another:

First FalconThe color is so vibrant and with the flowers on Kristen’s shirt it ties in nicely!

Time for a little more behind the scenes fun this time from our YouTube Live broadcast replay!

And we’ll leave you with one more photo…

First Falcon

And there you have it!  Our First Falcon was a winner and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

A Dazzling Day In Detroit With Dani For Her Senior Pictures!

We gushed about Dani plenty when we blogged about her spokesmodel session and after knowing her for about 6 months as she’s represented the studio for the class of 2018 we can say with certainty it was all justified.  We LOVE this girl and we definitely had a dazzling day with her in Detroit!  Her mom Diana came along for the fun and as you’ll see it was a session to remember.

Dazzling Day With Dani

Many of the highlights of this session ended up being in The Belt which we’ll get to, but we started out on Belle Isle and captured this stunner:

Dazzling Day

Wow – dazzling right?  I also have to say that I’ve been playing around with the new Snapchat filters on my iPhone for some of the behind the scenes stuff we put on our Snapchat stories and I think this one of Ally capturing the photo of Dani above is worth including here – like a cool little painting…

Meanwhile we have the YouTube live broadcast replay from Belle Isle as well for you here:

Now let’s head over to The Belt in downtown Detroit where we captured some real winners!

Dazzling Day

Love it – and here is the behind the scenes Facebook Live broadcast replay that goes with that shot:

Her outfit seemed to be just perfect for the colors there too….

Dazzling Day

We also went to an art gallery there that rotates installations of different mediums and we’ve been lucky enough to be there when they invited us in to take photos.  That’s where this last one was captured:

Dazzling Day

So cool!  And there you have it – a dazzling day in Detroit with Dani indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights!

Loving Lauren’s Likeness In Detroit On Her Spokesmodel Session!

We are loving Lauren’s likeness in Detroit!  Actually I think we’re just loving it on our blog period – Lauren continues to prove why we are so excited about our class of 2018 spokesmodel crew!  She came highly recommended and we could tell why the moment she and her mom Gabrielle walked into the studio.  We just totally connected with them right away and that’s really how it’s been so far with this group.  We were giddy about getting her in front of Ally’s camera and this session was scheduled to take place a couple days after we discovered the Michigan Building downtown with one of our current seniors.  There was much more we wanted to explore down there as well as getting over to the Eastern Market for some murals so we had a great plan since Detroit has become more and more popular for senior sessions with the city’s much heralded comeback.

Loving Lauren’s Likeness…

As I mentioned our first stop was at the Michigan Building where we got a pretty cool angle of the amazing and decaying ceiling as a backdrop to our girl – check it out:

Loving Lauren's Likeness

So cool!

As always we have some behind the scenes fun for you to show a little bit of the session and how we captured some of these photos.  First we have the Periscope replay – if you want to join in the fun at @FrameableFaces on the app you can do that here or if you simply want to check out the broadcasts from Twitter you can do that too.

We also wanted to get over to Eastern Market and do a little mural exploring – these have also become very popular for our seniors in Detroit.  We just love being down there – Detroit is so cool…

Loving Lauren's LikenessLauren is looking great – ripped jeans are a cool look in the city too!

Let’s look at a little more behind the scenes fun, this time from Facebook Live:

Here is a look at a couple more photos…  First we’ll show one more from a mural at Eastern Market:

Loving Lauren's Likeness

And lastly here’s a closer photo with this half crop…  also a very popular shot with various walls for us:

Loving Lauren's Likeness

So yeah… we were loving Lauren’s likeness in Detroit and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!  We can’t wait to get her back into the studio for her senior portraits soon!  We’ll leave you with the fun Snapchat story from the day!
