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!

Well Hello Hakims! A Fave Frameable Family Of Ours!

We’ve had a couple of Hakims here in the studio before – Nadia and Aliya both had their senior portraits done here, and what a delight it was to have the whole fam back in the studio together for a family session!  Everyone looked great and we had a lot of fun!  So with these highlights we say hello Hakims!!!

Hello Hakims!

They were nicely coordinated with the maroon colors which look fabulous on the brown fabric background and we’ll start with the group portrait…

Hello HakimsWhat a crew.

Sarah’s Stunning Senior Session In And Around Detroit!

Senior sessions in and around Detroit always get us excited – there’s just such a buzz around the city and so much to photograph!  It’s even better when we have a senior who is down for some fun with personality, style, and the whole fam!  Yep Sarah’s parents and older sister came along and we all had a great time!  Sarah is a sweetheart and we are pleased to present the highlights of our day with her!

Sarah Around Detroit!

We started on Belle Isle which is how we typically roll – it’s a great location with all kinds of spots to discover – we’ll pick up the action there:

Around Detroit

Love that, and love the aesthetically pleasing match of Sarah’s top to the brick around her!

We also have some fun behind the scenes for you as we usually do – first with the replay of the YouTube Live broadcast at Belle Isle:

Here’s a photo now of Sarah over by the conservatory where we found plenty of flowers to play with – and why not with Sarah’s flowery dress!

Around Detroit

At this point we left the island to head over to The Belt where there are fun murals to play with, and we captured this fun photo:

Around Detroit

So cool with all the colors, and here is the behind the scenes this time from the Facebook Live broadcast replay!

Back to the studio…

At this point it was time to get back to the studio for our signature “black and blowy” setup and we’ll leave you with one of those:

Around Detroit

Um……stunning!!!

And there you have it!  A stunning session with Sarah in and around Detroit and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!

An Honor To Have Chase Here For His Senior Pictures!

Yes it was fun to have Chase here for his senior pictures, but it was also an honor since Chase will be joining the Army after high school!  What a great kid and we know he’ll have a great career in the armed forces.  But for now let’s enjoy the fun pics where everyone got involved from the fam to Diva the pup, and this session was broken up into two days because of weather…  that seems to be a bit of a theme this Fall!

An Honor To Have Chase…

So we started in the studio on our scheduled day even with the bad weather outside and mom Krysten and nana Denise both joined us!  Great ladies!  Here is Chase on the white backdrop for the clean basic contemporary look – always a winner.

Honor

 

We also have some behind the scenes with the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast where Chase donned a little Army gear (a t-shirt, ballcap, and camo shorts)!

And the result:

Honor

Very cool!  We support our military!

Day 2

The day we had scheduled for the location session was a perfect day and everyone got into the act here…  so fun!  Let’s start with Chase and Diva the German Shepherd!

Honor

Diva even smiled for the picture!  Awesome.

We have more behind the scenes here too this time from the replay of the YouTube Live broadcast:

We’ll leave you with the family shot complete with the little bros!

Honor

And there you have it – an honor to be with these folks and Chase especially.  A fine young man to be sure!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with all of them!
