Well here’s one of those blog posts where the title writes itself! Qué Bella indeed! Bella is a beauty and we had a lot of fun on this session with her, her mom Ammi and grandma Marcia (like for real – we were cracking up on the Instagram you’ll see below)! Detroit always makes for a fun session and Bella killed it. So let’s get to some highlights shall we?
Qué Bella Indeed
We started out at The Belt which is a very cool spot.
We also have our first behind the scenes livestream replay from Facebook:
From there we moved on to Belle Isle but not before a pit stop at Eastern Market for a few and here’s some more video of the fun from Instagram:
Nick is our pick for being an all around good kid. Nick had a good time on his senior pics – he just has an easygoing and overall positive attitude that makes him enjoyable to be around and we had a great day in Detroit with him and his mom Jennifer (the rest of the fam met us towards the end as well)! Nick is a senior in the class of 2022 at the Eton Academy and it’s time to check out a few highlights!
Nick Is Our Pick
We started out with some murals in Eastern Market – how cool is the suit and tie look with the mural? A little juxtaposition of style perhaps?
We also have some fun behind the scenes – first from Instagram:
Yes Jenna generated some magic on her senior session – that’s for sure… We’ve known Jenna for a long time and she’s a legacy here at Frameable Faces since we photographed her brother Noah a couple years ago! We had a great day for it and we went for a combo of studio and nature and the results are, well, magical!
Jenna Generated Some Magic
Jenna’s mom Susan came along and we had a blast. We started on location to make sure we beat some possible rain in the forecast and the weather actually worked out totally in our favor. Let’s start on location:
So pretty!!! We mainly stayed on the West Bloomfield side of town in some natural settings and we have a little fun behind the scenes from Facebook Live for you:
Here’s another from outside…
At this point we headed back to the studio to get a few indoor photos and the magic didn’t stop:
We also have the Snapchat story with some highlights from the whole session before we leave you with one more pic!
And we’ll end with this black and white closeup:
You’ll agree that Jenna generated some magic right? Indeed. We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Sara slayed. Yes she did. That’s a good thing for those of you who aren’t down with the lingo. Think of it as Sara being a warrior – an underdog warrior going up against a big and deadly snow dragon (session), slaying it and emerging victorious with all of her beauty intact! That’s what happened. Just like that. That’s not to say there weren’t a couple moments of chilly adversity and windy cold to conquer – there were. But all metaphors aside, this girl was a lot of fun to be out in the cold with and we got some fantastic results!
Snowy sessions can be a bit of a scramble and that can be part of the fun… You see it’s hard to schedule a snow session in advance since we don’t know when there will be snow. It’s been especially tough this year since there has basically been no winter after two of the most brutal winters on record in 2014 and 2015. So when I happened to notice that some snow was in the forecast I called Sara and her mom to see if Sara could be ready in, like… a day! No problem was the answer! So we started on location – which is where we’ll start here:
Love it. She is really a beauty (and she barely knows it)!
One more in the snow…
Now before we come in from the cold let’s take a look at our fun behind the scenes action from our day. First with our 6 second vine for your looping enjoyment – you may even notice that Sara was just a tad chilly out there – hehe:
Next we have the Katch.me replays of the indoor and outdoor Periscope live broadcasts we did of the session. If you still haven’t downloaded the 2015 app of the year you can do so and follow us at @frameablefaces here. First the outdoor broadcast:
Now the indoor broadcast as we move to the studio:
We love these next two photos from the studio after we warmed up a little… the first one is just so darn cute:
And we’ll leave you with this last one you can just see how Sara owns it with the “black and blowy” setup!
And there you have it! You can see now that Sara slayed indeed on her senior session and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!
A junket is defined as “an extravagant trip or celebration, in particular one enjoyed by a government official at public expense”. Well, our urban junket with Jon was a celebration for sure – even if it wasn’t official government business! Birmingham has some of our favorite spots and even though we sometimes contrast Pontiac and Birmingham as “grungy vs. cosmopolitan” we can still find some gritty locales in Birmingham too.
Meanwhile Jon is a great kid – the weather was a little windy and chilly but he handled it like a pro. We’ve known Jon’s family for a few years now but we hadn’t really spent much time with him before his session, and we found him to be a really nice guy! So let’s get to some photos shall we?
A Senior Photo Junket With Jon…
We met up together in Birmingham and started shooting, and the first photo we are sharing is with a background that we often present in black and white – it just works…
Now let’s switch to full color as we explore some alleyways…
Now let’s take a fun behind the scenes look at the day with this vine that we posted:
Fun right? Now let’s take another view of the alleyway segment of the session before we switch it up again with this full length photo of the whole scene…
At this point we made a location switch and headed to a secluded area where we knew we could get this photo through a fence. We do this once in a while and it always makes for a dramatic image. What do you think?
Love that one, and it’s a good one to finish on for now! We hope you enjoyed our urban senior photo junket with Jon! We certainly had fun on location with him!
