A-lovin’ Havin’ Alivia Represent Frameable Faces As A Spokesmodel!

Ahhh Spring is finally (kinda) in the air here in Michigan and we were able to get outside for a class of 2020 spokesmodel session!  Couldn’t be more pleased to do that with Alivia who is adorable, an athlete, and a Bloomfield Hills Blackhawk!!!  We’ve gotten to know some of this fam over the last couple years at BHHS as our son Tony has been a football teammate of both of her brothers, and her parents are great – her mom Rhonda joined us on the session and she is a delight.  We did a little bit in the studio as well as on location for this session so let’s get to a few highlights shall we?

A’Lovin’ Alivia

 We started out in the studio on the black background to get some blowy 🌬 and some fiery 🔥 and well, wow.  Alivia just crushed it.  Here’s the setup with the fun behind the scenes livestream on Facebook Live – click on this and get a little chuckle… and be sure to give our page a “like”!

Here’s the awesome fiery result:

Alivia

Okay that is bad ass.

At this point we headed on location and this is quite typical of our seniors where we’ll spend some time on a session in the studio AND on location – both options are included in our session fee at no additional charge with the exception of longer distances such as Detroit or Ann Arbor (also very popular).

As for Alivia, we love this closeup of her – a natural beauty!

Alivia

Whoa!  Beautiful.

Alivia changed outfits too – how about some pretty in pink?

Alivia

 

We also have some fun behind the scenes from our livestream on Instagram which you can click and see below – Alivia is just such a natural on camera!

 

And we’ll leave you with this one with the brick.  Sometimes the breeze gives you a perfect lift!

Alivia

And there you have it!  A’lovin’ Alivia indeed – we are thrilled to have her as part of our crew!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Katie Krushed Her Spokesmodel Studio Session for the Class of 2020!

Katie Krushed it!  Yes she indeedy did, and we were so excited to have her here – we’ve known Katie as we said during the livestream since she was “pre-Katie”!!!  In the womb LOL….  Katie’s parents Kelly and Tim are dear friends of ours so the surrealness continues and this time was a pretty cool first because Katie is leading the way as our very first Clarkston Wolf spokesmodel!  The weather hadn’t quite warmed up yet and we still had a new studio backdrop to play with so we stayed indoors for this one.  Let’s get to the highlights:

Katie Krushed It

We started out on the grey fabric which we’ve actually had for a while but it seems to have been a while since we’ve used it so…

Katie Krushed

Love the fun full length with the ripped jeans!

We also have some fun behind the scenes action first from the Instagram Live broadcast as we went with the new green polka dot backdrop which we really like!

And here is the result:

Katie Krushed

Gorgeous!!!  And just love the colors.

Next we broke out the red Victorian couch and the damask backdrop to go with a dress that actually kind of matched and it looks so cool!

Katie Krushed

Here’s more behind the scenes from this setup this time from the Facebook Live broadcast!

The last one we’ll leave you with is the black with just a little blowy… one of our classic moves:

Katie Krushed

Love the color and those eyes on that girl!

And there you have it – Katie Krushed it indeed and we hope you liked the highlights – an awesome first for the Clarkston Wolves!

Anika Serves Up An Ace Of A Senior Session – Wow!

We love our seniors as you know, and we’re always really impressed with seniors who take the initiative to call the studio themselves and set up their own session!  This is not a knock on the seniors whose parents make the call, but we love when we can hear the confidence and eloquence of a young person who can handle themselves so well right off the bat!  This was the case with Anika, and that first impression was just the tip of the iceberg.  She is such a sweetheart!  Anika is also the number 1 ranked tennis player in the state of Michigan and is leaving this month to embark on her journey to play tennis at the University of North Carolina!  Doug’s Godfather played football at UNC back in the 50’s so we’ve always had a slight affinity for the Carolina Blue and White and now we’ll have a personal connection there with someone whose career we are excited to follow!

Anika Serves Up An Ace

As for her senior session it was one to remember – both her parents Pat and Sushma joined us for her day and they are both delightful – we had a lot of fun – and the photos?  Just awesome – an ACE of a session for sure and you could say we “LOVE” this girl – see what we did there?  Let’s get to the highlights!

We’ll start in the studio on the black…

Ace

Beautiful!

We played around with the white background too – so many options and it has been hard to narrow these down for this blog post…  In the meantime we have some fun behind the scenes first from the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast in the studio:

At this point we headed out to the tennis courts for some location photos and we had some really cool Michigan fall colors in the background for a tennis setting which was pretty neat as Anika donned some UNC gear:

Ace

Servin’ and slayin’….

We also have some behind the scenes fun from the tennis court at West Bloomfield High School from our Instagram livestream – take a look:

From there we headed over to Birmingham and these next two are both closeups but they’re just too good – so instead of choosing we’re leaving you with these two… one on the dock at Quarton Lake:

Ace

And one with a change of wardrobe and a natural background – awesome!!!

Ace

Anika served up an ACE of a session indeed, she’s got the ADVANTAGE for life, and we LOVE her for sure!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with her!

Holy Moly It’s Magnificence With Maddy On Her Senior Session!

Magnificence is defined as “the state of being strikingly beautiful or impressive”.  So, yeah sure we’ll go with that since it’s uh……SPOT ON with this girl!!!  Maddy is indeed an impressive young lady!  We’ve known her for a long time and this is actually the second time she’s appeared on our blog going back to the time of her Bat Mitzvah!  She’s also a legacy as a senior since her older sis Haley was also a Frameable senior so we were looking forward to this one.

Magnificence With Maddy

We were ultimately joined by the whole fam – proud parents Donna and Stuart joined, Haley cruised home from Ann Arbor, and the pup and grandpa all showed up – we love a fun family outing!  We mainly photographed around the West Bloomfield City Hall where there is a ton of spots to use including this awesome burning bush you’ve seen here before.  Maddy rocked it!

Magnificence

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the day – first with the replay of the Instagram Live:

Even Missy the pup got in on the action – a girl and her dog!

Magnificence

Okay how CUTE is that?

Here we have a stunningly magnificent image of Maddy just up close and personal:

Magnificence

Gorgeous!

We also have a little more behind the scenes from Facebook Live for you:

And we’ll leave you with one more with some beautiful backlight:

Magnificence

Wow! 

And there you have it – magnificence with Maddy indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with her!

It’s Madi Madness! A Super Fun Senior Session That We “Crushed”!

So how about some Madi Madness?  Madness in a good way – as in madly great photos of a madly great girl…  What a sweetheart and her mom Teresa is a delight as well!  We actually met Madi months ago here at the studio when she popped in with our son’s buddy and current spokesmodel (and current Madi boyfriend) Josh, and we liked her instantly – she’s hard not to like.

Madi Madness

We had a game plan that focused mainly on outdoor location photos in Birmingham and we even had the pup join!  But first let’s start with just Madi with this beautiful closeup:

Madi Madness

 
Gorgeous!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes first from the replay of our Instagram Livestream:
 

And here’s where the session temporarily went to the dogs – say hi to Ollie!

Madi Madness

Love a smiling pup!

At this point we headed over to downtown Birmingham where we took this classic pose by Madi’s request – and she rocked it!

Madi Madness

We fired up the live video one more time too – this time on Facebook Live:

And we’ll leave you with one more cute pose with the lamppost:

Madi Madness

Love it!  And we love Madi Madness!  We hope you loved the highlights of our day with her!

Oh wait….  our friend Aaron Norvell has a hashtag he’s promoting on Instagram called #IJustCrushed – we got in on that as a little bonus for you… hehe…

Dov Takes Over Detroit With An Epic Senior Session and a Day Of Firsts!

What a day… when Dov takes over Detroit epic stuff happens – at least it did this time.  Lots of firsts and new things for us – a new mural, a new bridge, a new photographer friend, a new restaurant for lunch…. a very memorable day overall.  Dov is also a buddy of our Tony so we knew this would be a good time.

Dov Takes Over Detroit

Dov’s mom Lauren joined us for some exploring down in Detroit – we figured we’d get our usual spots – Belle Isle, a few murals over by Eastern Market etc.  But we were approached by a photographer named Jen on Belle Isle who took us to a secret place (lol) and we took a few amazing photos on this really cool bridge!Dov Takes Over

So cool – and the photo above of our guy doesn’t do it justice – just take a look first at our fun behind the scenes video from Instagram Live!

And the result:

Dov Takes Over

Dope!

At this point we headed over to Eastern Market for some murals and got a few really cool photos – first with the mosaic wall which is becoming one of our faves:

Dov Takes Over

Here’s the behind the scenes from that one with the replay from the Facebook LIVE broadcast:

Last but not least we explored a little further down a street we hadn’t been down and discovered a new mural we hadn’t seen before – so cool!

Dov Takes

 

And there you have it!  After a well-earned stop at the first vegan coney in Detroit – Chili Mustard Onions (fantastic by the way) we headed home.  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with Dov!

Ally Photographing Ally! Does It Get Any Better For A Senior Session?

Ally photographing Ally is about as good as it gets.  Especially this Ally since her mom Teri was inspired by our Ally to use the name Ally for her daughter!  So with this senior session the circle of life is complete!!!  Haha…  Ally is also a legacy here since we photographed her sister Julia, so a fun day was definitely in store and a fun day we had.  Let’s take a look at some of the highlights!

Ally Photographing Ally

We had a great game plan simply because summertime in West Bloomfield is beautiful and we had a great day for it.  We focused on location photos, starting out bouncing around a couple of natural settings like this one:

Ally Photographing Ally

Love it and Ally looks beautiful!

Of course we have some fun behind the scenes first from Facebook Live (the video might be choppy – we’re not sure why):

There’s a bog we like as well that during a certain window of time is covered with algae and it looks really cool as a backdrop:

Ally Photographing Ally

Pretty nice huh?

At this point we headed to a lake to finish up and the session went to the dogs…

Ally Photographing Ally

Love when the pets jump in!  That’s Black and White Baby Joe!!!

We also have the Snapchat story from the day for some more behind the scenes action:

We’ll leave you with this final photo of Ally getting in the water!

Ally Photographing Ally

Love it.  And love Ally photographing Ally!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

A Million Kilowatts of Awesomeness With Kaitlyn On Her Senior Session!

Kilowatts are units of energy and it’s an appropriate word to describe the awesomeness that is Kaitlyn.  She’s a bundle of infectious personality and energy and we just LOVE her.  We’ve said this before but we’ll say it again – she’s one of our all time favorite people and we couldn’t think of anyone better to photograph on Ally’s birthday!  Kaitlyn and her mom Sara even brought us Yummy Cupcakes to celebrate!

Kilowatts

What’s funny is the timing of this has me (Doug) writing this on MY birthday which has me smiling too!  Kaitlyn is representing our studio this year as a spokesmodel at Bloomfield Hills High School at our son Tony’s suggestion and he was spot on with that recommendation.  We had an epic spokesmodel session with Kaitlyn in Detroit and we couldn’t wait to get her in front of Ally’s camera again!  But could we top it???  A million kilowatts of awesomeness with Kaitlyn would suggest a resounding YES!!!

A Million Kilowatts Of Awesomeness With Kaitlyn

The last time Katilyn was here we got some studio stuff along with the Detroit pics and this time we decided to spend all of our quality time outside for some natural scenery – of course we upped the ante a bit which we’ll get to but we’ll start in the meadow:

KilowattsSo beautiful with the pop of color!

We also have some behind the scenes fun starting with the Instagram Live replay where you can see I had a little fun with Sara – and who by the way is totally delightful which comes as no surprise as Kaitlyn’s mom.


 

As a little bonus here is a bit of twitter trolling from the video above… hehe….

Kilowatts

LOL.

At this point it was time to add some KILOWATTS OF AWESOMENESS to the session.

Kilowatts

Wow.

And if that weren’t enough, we finished with Kaitlyn IN the water!!!  First here is the behind the scenes replay of the Facebook Live broadcast:

And now….. well we’ll let these speak for themselves.

Kilowatts

Just stunning!

Kilowatts

One of our favorite sessions ever.  We’re going to include the Snapchat Story here too while we’re at it:

So there you go…  such a wonderful day and fantastic session.  A million kilowatts of awesomeness with Kaitlyn!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Alexandria Adorable – A Smushy Little Cutie at Two Months!

Alexandria Adorable just sums it up.  What a cute little smushy baby with a TON of personality at such a young age!  We don’t usually expect to get smiles like we did at 2 months but Alexandria is already ahead of her time, and her parents La Shawn and Aaron are just delightful.  We had a great time with them and Alexandria couldn’t have been easier to work with.  No crying, no meltdowns – a total pro at 2 months!

Alexandria Adorable

So let’s get to some highlights shall we?  We’ll start on the orange chair:

Alexandria Adorable

She’s SO CUTE!!!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the session – first with the replay of the Facebook Live livestream:

At one point Alexandria decided to take a little snooze – like an angel….

Alexandria Adorable

La Shawn and Aaron got into the act a little as well for a few family portraits and we have some more behind the scenes of that with the raw video replay from the Instagram Live:

And here is a really nice one of the three of them…

Alexandria Adorable

Lots of love in that photo!

We’ll leave you with one more of Miss Alexandria being all pretty in pink:

Alexandria Adorable

And there you have it!  Alexandria Adorable indeed.  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with them!

A Classic Frameable Family and a Mother’s Day Surprise!

The Stones are legends here – a classic Frameable family!  For starters Cheyenne and Sierra were both seniors here, with a stunning plexiglass of Cheyenne still hanging in the studio and Sierra having represented us as a spokesmodel for the class of 2013 (she’s the first one in this post from back then).  Through working with them we’ve become friends and while Cheyenne and Sierra have graduated college and moved to different states we’ve remained close with their parents Beth and Sheldon back here in Michigan.  So this year we conspired with the girls along with Sheldon to have them both fly home and surprise Beth for a family session for Mother’s Day here at the studio!  It was kind of funny because we had been out with Beth and Sheldon the week before and Sierra called while we were with them and everyone was saying “one of these days” they’ll have to get in to do a family session.  Beth had no clue – it was awesome….

A Mother’s Day Surprise

We were so excited – plus we miss the girls – we love them!  They came to the studio with Wrigley the pup they rescued here at the mall from one of the Detroit Dog Rescue events we have from time to time.  What a blast we had!  Let’s take a look at a few highlights:

Classic Frameable Family

They’re awesome.

We also have plenty of fun behind the scenes action – first with the livestream replay from Facebook Live:

A Classic Frameable Family

Once we got a few of those photos finished we started to switch it up a little – all the different combos – and we love the ones with Beth and the girls and Sheldon with the girls:

Classic Frameable Family

BEAUTIES!!!  #Swoon

And how fun is this one of Sheldon with the daddy’s girls…

Classic Frameable Family

Love it.

We also have the Snapchat story from the session for you from our YouTube channel which is a lot of fun!

We’ll leave you with this a-MAIZE-ing family portrait….

Classic Frameable Family

GO BLUE!!!

And there you have it – a classic Frameable family indeed and such a fun time for us to be with them again!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of their session!
