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!

Oh DEER! We Made Incredible Senior Session Memories With Meg!

Oh deer…. hehe.  I think we’ll just leave that here and we’ll come back to it later.

Meanwhile we had a delightful day with Detroit Country Day senior and future Central Michigan Chippewas field hockey player Meg and her mom Jennifer on a memorable senior session first here at the studio and then on location!  We’ll start in the studio:

Senior Session Memories With Meg!

The white backdrop is just a nice simple and contemporary look and Meg rocked it…

Oh Deer

She is adorable.

Fire up Chips!  No Really – FIRE UP!

We’ve had a run on accomplished athletes for the class of 2019 which has us thinking about making college sports updates for former Frameables a thing going forward, and Meg is going to be continuing her career in field hockey at CMU as we mentioned before.  So let’s FIRE up Chips!  Like, for real…

First a little behind the scenes of what we mean from the Facebook Live broadcast:

And the result!

Oh Deer

Don’t mess with Meg…

At this point we headed out on location to get some photos in a natural setting and we had a great day for it:

Oh Deer

Wow!!!  And that backlight….

We have some more behind the scenes this time from Instagram

And the photo in the leaves…

Oh Deer

Oh DEER….

Meanwhile here’s the oh DEER part.  We have never seen a more friendly wild deer than this one who just came over and chilled with us.  Licking Meg’s hand and just hanging out for a few pics.  We were blown away – Meg said it was the coolest thing she thinks she’s ever done.  It’s a bonus photo and here it is…

Oh Deer

Meg the deer whisperer!  We’re including the Snapchat story that has a little of this captured on video – so fun!

Oh DEER!  And there you have it – an experience we’ll never forget and a senior we won’t forget either!  We expect big things from this girl and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Zinging Around The Woods With Zach For His Senior Session!

Zinging around the woods with Zach on an unseasonably warm late fall day is our idea of a good time!  Zach is a fun dude – he’s a buddy of our son Tony too so he passes the test for full approval – haha…  We are also actually distant cousins with Zach so we’ve known his mom Liz forever too so we knew this would be a fun day. 

Zinging around the woods with Zach

We headed over to the woods behind the West Bloomfield library and found a pathway that we had never taken before, and wow what a cool spot!  The forest floor was coated with fall leaves and we got some great stuff, so let’s get to it shall we?

Zinging

Zach chilling among the tall trees!

We also have some fun behind the scenes action as we usually do.  Snapchat is being weird but we have our Facebook Live broadcast which is a lot of fun!  Take a look:

And now let’s get to the rest of the highlighted photos:

Zinging

Just relaxing on a log – we were having a pretty chill time.

Zinging

And we’ll leave you with one more!

Zinging

Good stuff – Zach looking good up close and personal!

And there you have it – we zinged around the woods with Zach and got some fantastic shots!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Alena Attains Autumn Awesomeness On Her Senior Session!

You may remember Alena from the beginning of the year in her spokesmodel session when she began to represent those North Farmington Raiders for our studio?  Well we upped the ante attaining Autumn Awesomeness for her senior session!  You remember back when it was Autumn right?  As of this zero-degree writing it seems so loooooong ago….  but I digress.  Let’s reminisce and revisit our day with Alena!

Alena Attains Autumn Awesomeness…

Alena’s mom Mindy is also a North Farmington Raider alum just like us and we’ve known her for many years so we love being with them and this day was no exception.  Since Alena’s spokesmodel session was all indoors during the winter we spent most of our energy this time on location in Birmingham and that’s where we’ll pick up the action.

Autumn Awesomeness

Yes!  Could her hair be any more perfect for a fall shoot?  We also need to give a shout out to Mandy Rose Studio for the always fantastic job on Alena’s hair and makeup (Michelle on hair and Mandy on makeup)!  Actually let’s even kick it up another notch with this one:

Autumn Awesomeness

Wow.  So pretty!  And let’s take a look at some of our fun behind the scenes action from the shoot, first with the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

Okay now let’s get to the fun urban stuff – industrial walls, streets and the like!  We headed over to another location for these and did another wardrobe change.

Autumn Awesomeness

Love it!  This has been one of our favorite walls for a long time and guess what – we’re not telling where it is!!!  Haha – we don’t own the wall so if you figure it out we won’t be mad lol…

Meanwhile we have some more behind the scenes fun with our YouTube Live replay – check it out and please hit the “subscribe” button to our channel while you’re there!

We will leave you with this last photo for now of Alena stopping traffic!  Haha!

Autumn Awesomeness

Wow right?  Alena slayed on this session and we attained Autumn Awesomeness indeed!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Photographing Jordyn On Her Senior Session Had Us Jumping For Joy!

Photographing Jordyn was a pure delight – you might even say being with Jordyn had us jumping for joy!  Well maybe not literally jumping but certainly figuratively because she is just such a sweetie and a pleasure to be around!  Her mom Rebecca joined us on a fine fall Michigan day and she’s a lot of fun too!  The results speak for themselves so let’s take a look:

Photographing Jordyn…

We started out in the studio on the white backdrop and we love Jordyn in the powder blue with the white chair!  Great one to start with…
 
Photographing JordynNext we moved to the black backdrop and we fired up the Facebook Live for some behind the scenes fun!  Take a look:
 

And here’s a shot on the black in a new outfit!

Photographing Jordyn

Love that!!!

At this point it was time to get outside on location and we made a stop over behind the West Bloomfield Library for a little pop of fall!  Photographing JordynShe looks so pretty!

At this point we headed over to our last stop over at Orchard Lake where we fired up the YouTube Live this time for a little more behind the scenes fun!  Take a look!

And we’ll leave you with one more photo of Jordyn chillin’ out on the dock:

Photographing Jordyn

And there you have it!  Photographing Jordyn had us jumping for joy and now you know why!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Lots Of Fun And Laughter On Lexi’s Lively Fall Senior Session!

Lexi had a lively fall senior session indeed – there was lots of fun and laughter because she’s just so funny!  She’s gorgeous, smart, nice and all that but she definitely made us laugh a lot.  You’ll see how much fun she is in the behind the scenes videos below.  Meanwhile she’s a legacy here since we photographed her older sister Helene several years back (before we were writing blog posts for each senior) and we were happy to have her parents Robyn & David back to the studio!

Lexi’s Lively Fall Senior Session!

Like her sister, Lexi waited until we had the pretty Pure Michigan fall colors and since we scheduled a morning session we went out on location to do those first – we’ll pick up the action there:

Lively Fall Senior

How amazing is that shot….?  She looks awesome surrounded by all the Pure Michigan fall leaves!

We also love this close up with the brick:

Lively Fall Senior

At this point we went over to nearby woods behind the West Bloomfield library and here is the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast behind the scenes – it would actually be great to have Lexi back to the studio to co-host some other livestreams – she’s hilarious!

….and here is the result:

Lively Fall Senior

Fantastic!

At this point we headed back to the studio for some photos where we went live again this time for some fun on YouTube:

…and one more from that red paper backdrop:

Lively Fall Senior

Gorgeous!

And there you have it!  A lively fall senior session with Lexi indeed – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Getting To Know Nadia On A Nice Fall Day In Michigan!

We love getting to know our seniors and on a nice fall day with those Pure Michigan colors outside we got to know Nadia a little better on her senior session!  She’s a total sweetheart – and what better day to photograph her than on her birthday!!!  Nadia’s mom Cherish joined us as well and we had a lot of fun with her too as you’ll see in a sec.  Meanwhile it was a little chilly that day (although that’s all mental as we like to remind our seniors – ha) but the conditions were still just fine for photos and we focused on location shots so let’s get to ’em:

Getting To Know Nadia

Know Nadia

Love that shot with the steps as the backdrop!

We also have some fun behind the scenes for you starting with the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

And let’s take a look at a couple more…

Know Nadia

Looking super cute in the hooded vest and you can see some hints of fall in the background as well as in this close up below…

Know Nadia

A nice pop of color with the scarf too!  We also have a little more behind the scenes this time from the Snapchat story from the day:

Fun with those snap filters!   Now we’ll leave you with one more:

Know Nadia

She looks amazing and nicely framed with some Pure Michigan fall leaves!

And there you have it – getting to know Nadia was wonderful and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Lo and Behold It’s Logan and His Killer Senior Session!

Lo and behold it’s Logan!  One of those surreal sessions for us since we’ve known this dude since he was a baby… he’s also a legacy here since his big sis Aria was one of our seniors last year (not to mention little sis Sedona had a Frameable bat mitzvah too) and this fam is one we’re very close with so this made for a fun one!

Lo and behold it’s Logan!

Meanwhile we were rained out twice for the location part of his session which was really the majority of what we had planned so we broke it up into two different days.  Logan’s mom Rachel came along and she and Ally did plenty of giggling getting Logan to laugh and smile…hehe…  So let’s start with a studio shot on day one:

Logan

Bad dude.

We also have some fun behind the scenes action starting with the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast from the studio:

Now let’s pick up the action on day 2 on location with some “Pure Michigan” colors!

Logan

Looking good!

For the behind the scenes on the location shoot we go to the snap story from Snapchat since there were some funny moments there…. lol!

And a couple more results:

Logan

How about that awesome Pure Michigan Color as a backdrop!!!

And we’ll leave you with one more…

Logan

And there you have it – lo and behold we made it happen with Logan even if we had to split up the session!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights!

Zak Is Back And In The Zone On His Senior Picture Session!

Zak is back and in the zone for senior pictures!  We say he’s back because he’s been here a couple times before – most recently on his spokesmodel session representing the class of 2018!  This time around with his mom Dena we went exclusively with on location photos and we got some great stuff…. 

Zak is back…

We started on Zak’s home golf course – home course for the Orchard Lake St. Mary’s golf team that is and with the fall colors coming in in the background we started with this one…

Zak Is Back

Fore!  Looking good!

We also have some behind the scenes for you here – this time we’re going to start with the Snap story from Snapchat which is a lot of fun!

While we were at the golf course Ally spied some steps she wanted to use and we got Zak in mid giggle here – he’s a good kid and Ally loves to mess with him.

Zak Is Back

Next we switched locations and brought out the 1970 Cuda!  So cool!

Zak Is Back

And here is some more behind the scenes from that shot from the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

And we’ll leave you with one more shot:

Zak Is Back

Zak is the man!

And there you have it!  Zak is back and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

In The Eden Of Orchard Lake For Senior Pictures….With Eden!

One of the definitions of an Eden is a place of pristine or abundant natural beauty, and Orchard Lake fits that description with beautiful Apple Island in the center.  It’s right up the road from the studio and a great backdrop for senior pictures!  So when an actual Eden came our way it seemed to make perfect sense to shoot there – by an “actual Eden” we mean our latest senior to highlight here on the blog – Eden!  Eden’s mom Lisa joined us and we had a great day starting in the studio so let’s begin there:

Eden

Love that – just simple on the white background!

We also have some fun behind the scenes as we usually do – first from the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:


 At this point we headed over to Orchard Lake and we also have some Pure Michigan fall color going on!

In the Eden Of Orchard Lake…

Eden

Beautiful – love Eden’s smile here and that’s Apple Island in the background with the pretty fall colors!  We also like the way the branch in the foreground frames her nicely…

Here’s another with more fall color:

Eden

So pretty!

Let’s take a look at some more behind the scenes action this time from the replay of our YouTube Live broadcast:

And one more from our day…

Eden

Love it – great one to finish with at our Eden with our Eden!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!
