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.

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!

A Fabulous Family Of Three – And They Are Soon To Be Four!

It’s a joy to see a family in the process of growing right before your eyes when they are expecting and this fabulous family of three is about to become FOUR!  So we met them in a park to get some awesome location portraits of this version of the crew and we had a blast.

Fabulous Family of Three

Corey and Alexis have actually been to the studio before as part of a larger group family portrait session, but this time we got to hang with just them and their cool little man Avery and the results are pretty great.  Let’s start with the family portrait of the three of them:

Fabulous Family

Love that fun look on Avery’s face!

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

So fun!

Let’s get to a few more shots – let’s take a look at Avery just being Avery!

Fabulous Family

And how about a father / son shot in black and white!

So this was a pretty straightforward approach with the kids on the brown backdrop and their outfits were amazing…  Let’s start with the three together:

There’s nothing like one of those special and memorable family events – milestones by which we mark the stages of our lives and celebrate together like a Bar Mitzvah!  We have been honored to be a part of many of these since we brought our event photographer Angela on board, and Evrett’s Bar Mitzvah is no exception!  We have some highlights to share from this awesome celebration!

This Was A Fun and Fabulous Frameable Family of 6!

Sometimes life happens – things get crazy, you’re raising kids and it’s the glorious chaos of life, right?  Heba is a perfect example of this with the story of this session – first let’s just say at the end of the day she has 4 amazing kids and just an overall fabulous Frameable family!  4 kids ranging from 15 to 3 – which we know ain’t always easy, but judging by the results we have to give it up to her and Vinny – they are pulling it off in style.  Meanwhile Heba stopped in here a year ago to plan a family session and then it didn’t happen – like the first sentence I typed above life happened!  We had almost forgotten about her – almost.  But when she popped back in with a huge friendly smile asking “remember me?” I absolutely did and we were thrilled that she came back!  Her little man was turning 3 and the timing was good for them to get this scheduled.  So without further adieu let’s take a look – we’re going to present these a little differently than we usually would because we LOVE the 4 close ups of the children which Heba will be displaying in her home along with the family portrait!

Fabulous Frameable Family!

Let’s start with the traditional family portrait – what a gorgeous crew.  The little guy and I bonded – we were giving each other “two thumbs up” to get ready for each shot and he was a total pro – and I gotta tell you, not all 3 year olds are the easiest to photograph, but we usually can get it done and with this little one there was no problem.

So here is the Fabulous Frameable Family:

Fabulous Frameable

….and here are the children in order from oldest to youngest with matching close crop black and white portraits!  Love these.

Fabulous Frameable

Fabulous Frameable

Stunning right?  We really enjoyed having this crew in the studio, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with them!

Sammy The Future Chef Had A Scrumptious Soirée For His Bar Mitzvah!

Sammy is a future chef in the making – the dude can create some serious culinary concoctions and he knows quality when he tastes it so you know if he has any say at all in the menu at his bar mitzvah that it’s gonna be gooooooood – a scrumptious soirée!  And in this case the food didn’t disappoint!  We know because we were there – as guests, because Sammy is our nephew!  Ally did indeed take a few photos at the weekday service at Adat Shalom Synagogue which we’ll share here, but the bulk of these highlights come from the event and is the work of our fantastic event photographer Angela!  Let’s start with a few photos from the small chapel earlier in the week at shul.
 

What a legacy…

Sammy’s great grandfather was the cantor at Adat Shalom for many years so it was very special for Sammy to carry on that tradition as the first of his generation within that family to become a Bar Mitzvah.  Here are a few highlights as Sammy leads the service and does the name proud:
 
Scrumptious soirée

Sammy reads from the Torah

Scrumptious soirée

Sammy with his dad and maternal grandfather putting on tefillin

Scrumptious soirée

Sammy and his parents receive a blessing from the Rabbi

Let’s get to the Scrumptious Soirée!

The party was held at the Royal Oak Farmer’s Market – a great wide open space for a bash!  The food was off the charts with Asian, Mexican, and Israeli stations for food and everyone had a blast – I know we did!  Sammy had a ton of fun on his big day for sure.
Scrumptious soirée

The Whole Scene!

Scrumptious soirée

Sammy gets a lift during the traditional Hora Dance!

Haha – think he was enjoying this?

The Bar Mitzvah Stud

That’s a great shot by Angela of Sammy!

“Then and Now” Sammy!

What is hilarious about that shot is Sammy is recreating the big photo that was taken by Ally when Sammy was only 2!

Scrumptious soirée

Stacy & Jason get to relax and enjoy the celebration!

We love that last shot – the way Angela framed Stacy and Jason with all the celebratory raised glasses is perfect!  All in all it was a day and a night to remember at Sammy’s Scrumptious Soirée!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights!

Shaista Brings Back The Whole Crew and They’re Growing UP!!!

We get excited when Shaista brings back the whole crew!  We started photographing her kids shortly after we opened our studio space here in the Orchard Mall and they are just an awesome family – great kids and much fun to have around.  The wrinkle this time was that Shaista brought her husband Shabbir to get the whole family in the photos!  There’s a little story here – we’ve known Shaista and the kids for years but we never met Shabbir before so the running joke was that he wasn’t real – that we didn’t believe he existed.  Haha!  Well we can now say he does indeed exist and he’s as delightful as we would have expected.  I joked with him that we thought he was a phantom and he replied “Hey I was out working hard for these guys!”  Now that’s a good guy.  So without further adieu let’s take a look at some sneak peeks of this fabulous session!

Shaista Brings Back The Whole Crew…

Let’s start with the whole fam in a portrait with traditional dress which is always a joy – such vibrant colors against the brown earth tones…  love this:

Shaista brings

What an awesome group!

We also have some video replays from the live broadcasts we did during the session for a little behind the scenes fun – first on YouTube Live which we just started doing some of – you can subscribe to our channel here!


  

Next let’s focus in on a photo of just the happy couple!

Shaista brings

They look fantastic!

We also have a little more behind the scenes fun this time from the Facebook Live broadcast we did:


They’re Growing UP!!!

Now let’s focus on the kids!  We have a couple of photos of the 4 of them being, well…..the 4 of them!  Haha!

First in the traditional clothing…

Shaista brings

And next in some casual gear…. love it!

Shaista brings

So fun!!!  You can tell they were having a blast – being kids but still really well behaved – love them!

And there you have it – when Shaista brings back the whole crew we have a ton of fun.  We hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks from their session!

Nelma and Her Fabulous Fam Represents Frameable Nation In Pensacola!

NELLLLLLLLLMAAAAAA!!!  Okay we need to explain.  We met Nelma through Periscope and we’ve known her for quite some time now.  We both used to host game shows on a network called “Play For Stuff”, were hanging out in the same circles in the Periscope community and we have consequently spent plenty of time in each other’s broadcasts.  Nelma actually named our living room in the studio “the parlor” and one of our couches is named for her too………..and she’s never actually set foot in our studio.  She lives in Pensacola, Florida with her husband Alfie and their adorable daughter Lydia.  That just speaks to the amazing madness that is Periscope, and we have no idea how this piece started but anytime Nelma jumps into one of our broadcasts she’s greeted with “NELLLLLLMAAAAA!!!” by the two of us in unison.

So eventually as we’ve documented here we got the idea to plan a road trip for Spring Break that would include photo sessions since we are asked quite often if we would travel to do them.  The Frameable Faces Spring Tour started to take shape and when we said we were coming south to Florida, Nelma said “sign me up”!  We were so excited to finally meet her and to photograph her family!  We met in downtown Pensacola on the back end of a drive all the way up the state from Del Ray just in time for great light and really nice conditions at Plaza Ferdinand VII in the center of town!

Nelma and Her Fabulous Fam…

Let’s start with a fun pic of the three of them…

Nelma

And how about one of just Nelma and Alfie?

NelmaThey’re awesome.  As delightful in person as we expected!

As usual we have some behind the scenes fun for you – we did a Periscope broadcast and here is the replay!  You can follow us and join in the fun at this link or you can just check it out from Twitter here.

Now let’s talk about sweet little Lydia!  She is 4 and she is such a cutie!

Nelma

So adorable!  And such a little character – we had a lot of fun with her.

Nelma

Love that one!

And that’s the one we’ll leave you with!  Let’s also give a little shout out to check out her online store Beach Baby Couture with custom letter blankets and all sorts of other custom bedding, quilts, clothing – you name it!  We saw her home shop where she makes all of these items – we were really impressed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with Nelma and thanks for reading!

Pamela, Michael and GEORGE! A Doggone Great Session!

Pamela had been here in our studio before for some headshots and she is a delightful gal!  So when she called us to come back to the studio we were excited – even more so when she informed us that she would be bringing her hubby Michael and their French Bulldog George!!!  You have to love French Bulldogs, and George is a character – we knew this would make for a doggone great session!

Doggone Great…

This session was done totally in the studio and we started out with a Detroit Tiger theme which really works with our orange chair!  George was totally coordinated with Pamela and Michael and ready to roll – here’s a full length family portrait to start with…

Neil Is Back, He’s Two, And He’s Still Pretty Darn Cute!

Neil was pretty darn cute when he was here as a little bitty baby, and – no surprise – he’s still pretty darn cute as a two year old!  He came back to the studio with his minions even though it was him who was dressed as one!  Haha…  Parmesh and Nalini are great – we laugh quite a bit when we’re together here in the studio and we had another winning session this time around with different outfits, plenty of toys and plenty of food too!

Neil Is Pretty Darn Cute…

So let’s start right in with the minion outfit to get right into the cuteness…
