A Fun and Frameable Family of Three (Four including Lulu)!

Okay what a fun family we have here…  Just so delightful.  Say hello to Giacomo, Stephanie, Lorelai……..and Lulu.  Lol – Lulu the pup is hilarious – she did NOT like Doug.  Like at all, but she still posed for Ally and that was the important thing and we all had a good laugh about it too!  We had a lot of fun with these peeps.

Giacomo, Stephanie, Lorelai, and Lulu!

We spent part of a Saturday here at the studio with these folks and let’s get to a few highlights.  We started off with some fun family photos on the white background and this first one is hilarious – everyone is smiling / laughing because Lulu was barking at Doug while he was trying to help Ally and get Lulu’s attention.  So funny!

Lulu

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

After that series we moved to the black backdrop for some individual / couple images.

Here’s a fabulous one of Lorelai by herself:

Lulu

She’s adorable!

And here’s one of Lorelai together with Lulu!

Lulu

How great is that one?

We’ll leave you with this really nice one of Giacomo and Stephanie together…

Lulu

Such a happy couple and a happy day!

We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with this fabulous and Frameable Fam!

Family Portraits With Some Familiar (and completely Frameable) Faces!

We love when our peeps have growing families and they bring them in for updated photos – we love to be a part of these special moments and to catch up!  Jen has 5 children now including two “newer additions” and 2 of the five have been on our blog before – Emily for senior pictures and Noah for pictures with his grandmas!  So getting them all here together was really fun.  They actually came to the mall for breakfast with Santa (a mall event where we took pictures for everyone with Santa and Mrs. Claus) and then back to the studio for their own session, ultimately including all of it on their custom holiday cards!

Familiar and Frameable

Let’s start with Santa:

Familiar

Breakfast with Santa here at the mall is always so much fun!  Samuel and Noah had a blast and we hope they got what they asked for!

Now back at the studio we have pictures first of the girls and then of the boys…

Familiar

Sarah and Emily are such beauties inside and out!

Next it’s the dudes:

Familiar

Adam looks pretty happy to be with his two little brothers!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from Facebook Live!

And we’ll finish with the whole family with Jen and Andrew getting into the picture!

Familiar

And there you go – what a crew!  Familiar faces make us happy and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!

A Last Hurrah Session For A Family Starting A New Chapter!

Jaime was here years ago with her first born when she was a baby and then again with her middle child, and she called us to say she wanted to bring everything full circle with a family session of her, her hubby, and her THREE kids before they move across the state!  We love reconnecting with our Frameable families and seeing how they’ve grown, and this was a nice poignant moment to capture with a last hurrah session in Northville before they start their new chapter!

Last Hurrah Session In Northville!

We went to a park the kids have played in many many times and we started with them pushing this big spinning rock – just having fun!

Last Hurrah Session

Of course we have a little bit of fun behind the scenes from the Snapchat story from the day…

Now let’s take a look at a few more of the whole fam…

Last Hurrah Session

What a crew!

We like the composition of this next scene framing the family…

Last Hurrah Session

Such a lovely scene!

And there you have it!  A really nice last hurrah session before the move and we wish them the very best in their new ‘hood!!!

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!

Krista Brought Joe & Cutest Parents Jim & Jean By For A Special Session!

Krista and Joe have been to the studio a couple times before for various family photos – some with the kids, but never with just them and Krista’s parents Jim and Jean.  We are so happy they did this because it was much fun and just really so special!  You could just tell this meant a lot to all of them and the behind the scenes from Facebook and Snapchat will give you a sense of that.  Besides Jim and Jean were both a delight to have a little fun banter with – they were great on camera!  We nominate them in the category of Cutest Parents Ever.

Cutest Parents Ever!

These photos were all done in the studio with a couple of outfit changes for Krista and Joe so they could get a few photos together just the two of them.  But first we’re going to focus on the photos that include Jim and Jean, starting with a group photo:

Cutest Parents

Next we have this wonderful photo of Jim and Jean together…

Cutest Parents

So much love in that photo!  And here you can see just how much fun we were having in the behind the scenes livestream from Facebook Live!  Just click on the arrow in the middle of the image below.

 

We’ll share one of Krista and her mommy before we conclude with one of Krista and Joe…

Cutest Parents

LOVE.

Now we have one of Krista and Joe a bit more dressed up and looking GREAT!

Cutest Parents

Last but not least we decided to upload the Snapchat story to our YouTube channel so we could include it here just because there were a few more great moments there….

So there you have it!  Krista, Joe, and Krista’s cutest parents!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with them!

Noah, His Grandmas and More Cowbell – What a Fun and Special Session!

It’s a blessing to have both of your grandmas and Noah brought them both to the studio for his 3 year old portraits!  Noah is a ball of energy and we had a lot of fun!  Noah’s mom Jen was here and she’s been here a bunch since one of her older daughters Emily has represented our studio this year for the high school senior class of 2018 – so we love these peeps!

Noah and the grandmas

So let’s get to a few of the highlights!  First with the grandmas!!!

Noah

So CUTE!

Noah

Awesome.

We also have some super fun behind the scenes action from Facebook Live – we got cut off in the middle but it’s still pretty great.

Now how about a couple of the big man himself…

Noah

Love this in black and white.

Oh – and almost forgot – like the title says, Noah decided that this photo session needed MORE COWBELL!!!  Don’t all sessions need a little cowbell?  Hehe…

Noah

Yes!!!  A fun and special session indeed!  We hope you enjoyed our time with Noah and his grandmas!

Enzo Is Back, He’s One, and He’s Pretty Awesome!

Man do we love one year olds.  They are so fun at that stage as their little personalities are developing and this dude – Enzo – has personality to burn!  Plus he’s a hunka chunka and we had a blast with him and his mommy Ashley for his one year photos!  He was here last with his sibs when he was 6 months old and this time around he had an awesome multi layered birthday cake with him.  So the stage was set….

Enzo is back

First Ashley had Enzo stylin’ before we got to the cake and we broke out the blue/grey backdrop for a few portraits – we’ll start with those!

Enzo

Okay how yummy is he?

We also have some fun behind the scenes with the fun Facebook Live we did – here’s the replay:

And one more on the blue in the basket… 

Enzo

Haha!  So cute!!!  How great is that bowtie?

Let him eat cake!

Now it was time to get to the cake!  And what a cake – check it out… you can feel the anticipation!  Lol…

Enzo

We’ll leave you with one more as Enzo was getting his feast on!

Enzo

Now that’s a happy kid.

And there you have it!  To be one and awesome – that’s Enzo!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with him!

We Love When Three Generations Get Together For Family Portraits!

Tricia and her hubby came in from Texas and brought in the whole crew for this session and it was a blast – a whole gaggle of little cousins running around and lots of laughter in the studio!  Gotta love when three generations get together for family portraits and we certainly love these results.  Let’s take a look:

Three Generations

It’s all about family and we’ll start with the whole family portrait on the blue / grey background…

Three Generations

Great crew!!!

We also had a little fun with some behind the scenes in the form of a Facebook Live broadcast – take a look!

And here we start to break it down into each of the families for more intimate portraits of each!

Three Generations

How cute are they?

Three Generations

Haha – awesome – hands full with little ones!

And now here is the coup de grace!  Love this collage that Ally put together of the cousins:

Three Generations

So precious!  A great one to end it on and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of the three generations that Tricia brought to the studio on this day!
