Alexandra Made Her Debut
First we just captured a few of this angel asleep…
And then the big teddy bear came out that they brought with…
How great is that photo???
Now for a closeup…
And we’ll leave you with one family portrait of the three of them!
And there you have it! It was a wonderful day the day Alexandra made her debut, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!
One of our favorite all time Frameable Families has grown and they returned this year to let us help them capture the next chapter in their family story! We love Parmesh, Nalini and Neil and this post includes highlights of both their maternity session and the newborn photos of Niko!!!
Nalini wasn’t all too comfortable when she was here for the maternity session but you wouldn’t know it by the results and she was a total trooper! Let’s take a look at a few of those first:
Preparing For Niko
Niko hadn’t arrived when the family three came to the studio for these maternity photos and Neil was excited with the anticipation of getting a brand new little brother!
We also have some fun behind the scenes from Facebook Live:
And here’s a few more:
Told you Neil was excited! Hehe…
And one more in traditional dress:
Love the vibrant colors!
Niko Arrives On The Scene!
Flash forward to Niko’s arrival!!! Okay how cute is this little guy???
More behind the scenes fun here…
Such a great time with them! Here’s a few more of Niko…
Love the naked baby pics!
Sleep little Niko…
And there you have it – the return of one of our favorite Frameable Families, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of these two sessions!
Brian and Maeghan have such a great Frameable family in every respect! Their son goes to our awesome next door neighbor Tru Martial Arts, so they’ve walked by our studio a bunch of times. They said it had been way too long since they had professional family portraits so they came in and even brought their pup Denny!
Brian & Maeghan’s Frameable Family
So let’s get to some highlights! We’ll start with the perfect family portrait – smiles all the way around – even Denny!
Love it – and here’s some fun behind the scenes with the crew from Facebook!
Now the sweetest sibling pic….
Love the black and white of these two…
And now the kids get their own moments – ladies first! Ava is so adorable! Loving those glasses!
And we’ll leave you with this one of Nick – Ally loves when guys wear pink!
We thoroughly enjoyed this crew – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with them!
Love was in the air and dogs were in the studio!!! Okay a few cats too… and what a day! We partnered up with our neighbors Premier Pet Supply down the hall who provided awesome goody bags and we donated a portion of the proceeds to iHeart Dogs Rescue and Animal Haven and Detroit Dog Rescue for pet portraits on the red couch and a couple of heart balloons for a very furry and fun Valentine’s Day!
Frameable Faces Goes To The Dogs…
So without further adieu, let’s take a look at the fur babies!
How awesome right? And here’s a little TikTok of highlights from the day…

We’re looking at a repeat for St. Patrick’s Day so stay tuned for announcements if you want to bring in your furry family member! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day, and check out all of our links below to our Podcast and other places to find us on the Web!
We have a PODCAST!!! I guess you could say this story began almost 5 years ago really… We have been livestreaming on Periscope since March 31st, 2015 – 5 days after the app launched in the app store. Since then we’ve met people virtually through Periscope all over the world, spoken at the Periscope Community Summit (Summit Live) in San Francisco, visited and/or photographed people we’ve met in Biloxi, Pensacola, Orlando, Mobile, New York, and Harbor Springs, restored photos for people around the globe and had visitors from Periscope at the studio from Chicago, Delaware, Washington D.C., Kansas, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, England, and Australia! Doug got one of his digital marketing clients from Periscope too!
It’s been one amazing ride.
Our show is on in the mornings generally Tuesday – Friday (and once in a while Saturday) sometime between 9:30 and 11:30EST and usually goes for about an hour. There’s lots of fun banter and a crew who is known as the “Octosquad” – plenty of shenanigans and inside jokes, not to mention telemarketing pranks.
We even have a hilarious logo designed by the amazing Rich Nairn and you can see the “history” of the Doug & Ally Morning Show in the form of his doodles at our Pinterest board… should give you a chuckle.
Enter The Doug & Ally Morning Show Podcast!
Meanwhile, over time our peeps started suggesting that we start a podcast. Podcasting is becoming a popular medium – people love to be able to listen to them on demand while they’re commuting, making dinner – in their car, on their headphones, with Alexa…. So after a brief series of episodes exclusively on our Patreon page which was subscription only, we decided to reboot it and open it up to the masses! We have three episodes live already and you can listen to them at the following embedded players and/or links. We’re still adding new platforms and we’re already almost everywhere you likely get your podcasts.
One last thing. The podcast is free. IF you are inclined to support the podcast, we would like to treat this separately in terms of the time it takes to line up guests, record, and invest in the podcast. We’d like to start upgrading to some proper equipment to upgrade the quality as well. So if you want to visit the Patreon page and subscribe we will give a shout out on the show when we get supporters, we’ll send you a Doug & Ally Morning Show bookmark and we’ll keep growing it – maybe with behind the scenes goodies and who knows what else? Like I said – it’s not required, but it’s worth it for some people to get involved and help grow this thing, and then we’ll get sponsors and maybe we can make a few dollars! We’ll be grateful if you do!
The current episode is the one that shows on the embedded players below, but you can click on the links and binge ALL of them from the beginning! Subscribe on your platform of choice and reviews (on Apple podcasts / iTunes for example) help too!
So enjoy, and there will be more to come – we’re just getting started!!!
Our host site is Anchor.fm and here is the podcast player for it.
You can also get us on Spotify:
Castbox – you can see all 3 episodes in their embedded player (kinda cool):
TuneIn (which is the one Alexa uses – you should be able to just ask Alexa to play The Doug & Ally Morning Show Podcast!
Here are ALL the links (so far….)
On the Bimah
Brennan did a great job leading the service and was totally prepared!
A proud dad moment – father and son!
Photographing kids can be so much fun, and when three siblings come to the studio who are so fun, smart and well behaved like these three? Well that just makes it even better. Definitely three of the cutest sibs we’ve had at the studio, so let’s take a look!
Three Cutest Sibs…
We’ll start with the three of them together…
And then we’ll give each one of them their own turn in the spotlight! First big sis:
LOVE THE BERET!!!
Next the big man:
And now baby sis!!!
We LOVED our time with these three – they were a delight! We hope you enjoyed these portraits!
Ashley and Dana are stunning sibs indeed and they are roommates too! We photographed them at home in their first house recently and we had so much fun with them – new friends! They are delightful and we had a lot of laughs. They included their kitty Chris in a couple of the pics and we did a little casual as well as a little formal – excited to show these off!
We started off with the casual in the living room with Chris!
They are adorable! Oh and Chris says meow.
One more playful one in the living room:
One more casual by the front door…
At this point the girls changed into something a little more formal and we have some fun behind the scenes from Facebook LIVE:
Fun right? And here’s one of the STUNNING results!
Just beautiful girls….
And there you have it – stunning sibs indeed! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with them!
