A Happy Hannah Happening – Spectacular Senior Pics in the D!

A happy Hannah happening was what we had in downtown Detroit on this senior session!  We go back to high school with Hannah’s mom Robyn so this was one of those surreal sessions for us and it was certainly one to remember!  Hannah’s dad Glenn came along as well and we had a blast.  As for Hannah we just have to say that she has this fun and infectious personality that totally draws you in – just a cool and nice girl who isn’t afraid to have a good laugh!  We loved working with her and she had an amazing session, so let’s get to the pics!

Happy Hannah Happening in the D

Hannah decided on Detroit so we spent all of our time there, and we started on Belle Isle where we got the cool skyline photo that we love!

Okay she’s adorable.

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

We grabbed a few more photos on Belle Isle too – first on the red bridge up close and personal with our girl:

That backlight is kickin’!

And we also went back to the graffiti bridge – here’s some more behind the scenes from Instagram:

….and the result:

Love it!!!

We made a location change to Eastern Market to finish up the day and found a few awesome murals – here’s one of them to leave you with:

A happy Hannah happening indeed!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Taking Over Detroit For Senior Pictures With The Jack Attack!

It’s time for the Jack Attack!!! As in Jack’s senior pics in Detroit where we had an epic day!  Jack is a legacy here which is always fun since we photographed his big sis Kylie too a couple years ago!  With Jack we hit a bunch of spots including some Pie-Sci Pizza which is becoming our go to – we love hanging in Detroit!  Jack’s mom Kelly joined as well, so let’s get to the highlights shall we?

Jack Attack in the D

We started out at Belle Isle and we used the fountain with a new angle that we haven’t used before for a really cool photo of Jack with the fountain way in the distance…

Jack Attack

Love this – pretty sure we’ll be doing this again – it will be known as “The Jack” shot.

We also have some behind the scenes first from the replay of our Instagram Live broadcast:

We also grabbed a photo of Jack on the red bridge that we really like there before moving on to get some murals…

Jack Attack

At this point we headed over to the Eastern Market to get some photos of Jack with some murals and we discovered this huge one of some of Jack’s favorite hip hop artists – we’re including it here as an extra for fun – Jack is small in the photo but the whole thing is pretty sweet – check it out:

Jack Attack

And here we have some behind the scenes this time from Facebook Live before we get to a couple more photos:

Fun right?  Okay two more photos:

Jack Attack

Lots of great spots to photograph in the D…

Jack Attack

And there you have it – the Detroit takeover with the Jack Attack!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

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!

Capturing Cara With Some Completely Cool Shots In Detroit!

Capturing Cara has become plenty fun for us here – she is a current spokesmodel for the class of 2018 so you may have seen her here before on her spokesmodel session, and she rocked her return!  Cara’s brother Ben was a Frameable senior as well and parents Gina and Kenny round out a great family!  Gina came on the session with us and we knew we’d be in for a fun time as long as the weather held up – for a while there the forecast wasn’t looking good but we lucked out!  We headed down to the D and started out on Belle Isle…

Capturing Cara!

Here’s a spectacular shot of Cara with the Detroit River and the Renaissance Center in the background!

Capturing Cara

 

There are so many amazing spots on Belle Isle – here’s a little behind the scenes fun from our YouTube Live broadcast there!

…and one more shot before we focus on the Eastern Market area….

Capturing Cara

LOVE this with the yellow and black with Cara being framed by some yellow too!

At this point we headed over to the Eastern Market and Dequindre Cut to take advantage of the many murals and locations to work with there.  Let’s start with Cara with a mural backdrop:

Capturing Cara

Loving it…

Let’s also see some more behind the scenes fun from our Facebook Live broadcast while we were down there!

And one more from this doorway we found – Cara was in the zone at this point – capturing Cara was a breeze!

Capturing Cara

A great day to be sure and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day capturing Cara!

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!
