Brennan’s Bar Mitzvah Was A Bash – A Real Hat Trick!

Brennan’s Bar Mitzvah was a bash!  It was a hockey themed party at High Velocity Sports in Canton and Star Trax was there with the music and the hype!  It all came together for a great event and our event photographer Angela was there to capture it while we partied as guests with Brennan and his family – some of our oldest friends!
 

Tradition

Let’s highlight a few photos from Temple Israel which is what a bar mitzvah celebration starts with and is really the core of the proceedings – when a young man reads from the Torah and becomes an adult member of the community!
 
Brennan
He’s ready to roll.

Looking sharp!

Surrounded by family and ready to celebrate this awesome rite of passage!
 

On the Bimah

Brennan did a great job leading the service and was totally prepared!

Brennan

A proud dad moment – father and son!

Brennan’s Party!

Everyone enjoyed themselves in a casual setting with plenty of games, sport activities and dancing at High Velocity Sports.  Angela likes to get there early to get some photos of the room and the set up – here’s the sign in board with the table assignments – as you can see the score was “13-0” in favor of Brennan!

The Decorations

Brennan is a hockey player as you might guess and that was an emphasis with his theme!  As a matter of fact he came to the studio ahead of time for a session with Ally for the decorations – here’s the behind the scenes fun from that day!
 

And one of the results that were blown up large and on display at the party:

Now let’s get back to the fun and a proud mom moment with Brennan and his mom Monique!
 
Brennan
Here’s one with Brennan’s crew!  You can see they were having fun!
 
Brennan
It’s a fun tradition to dance the Hora and lift up the bar or bat mitzvah on a chair!
 
Brennan
You can see a great time was had by all and especially for the man of the hour:
 
Brennan
And there you have it!  An event to remember and we’re glad we were able to be a part of it!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights!

Sister Act – A Session With Stunning Sibs Ashley and Dana!

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!

Stunning Sibs

We started off with the casual in the living room with Chris!

Stunning Sibs

They are adorable!  Oh and Chris says meow.

One more playful one in the living room:

Stunning Sibs

Haha!

One more casual by the front door…

Stunning Sibs

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!

Stunning Sibs

Just beautiful girls….

And there you have it – stunning sibs indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with them!

Twinning and Winning – Part 2 – We Are On The Shane Train!

In yesterday’s post Twinning and Winning – Part 1 – And We Ain’t Lyin’ About Ryann! we went all Ladies First with Ryann’s highlights with a twin pic of Ryann and Shane together mixed in.  Today we reverse it and get on the Shane Train!!!  Shane is a good dude and he was a trooper on these two days in Detroit taking all these pics with his sis!  We had a great time with these two and here are more of the highlights!

On The Shane Train

We’ll start with one of our favorite mosaic murals in Eastern Market:

Shane Train

Looking good!!!

Here’s one from Belle Isle with a pretty cool composition – an angle we hadn’t used before:

Shane Train

We posted a photo from the cool ivy wall we found in Detroit yesterday of Ryann, and here’s some behind the scenes of that spot from Facebook Live:

And a result with Shane:

Shane Train

Pretty cool huh?

We grabbed this black and white on the Wayne State campus – big fans of how this one turned out:

Shane Train

Our last spot was by a very cool sculpture – also a somewhat random find…  and here’s the behind the scenes from Instagram:

And we’ll leave you with one of those of the twins together!

Shane Train

Love them!

You can see why we weren’t lyin’ about Ryann yesterday and why we are on the Shane Train today!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with these two!!!

Bensson and Magdalena Have A Fantastic Crew Full Of Cuteness!

Okay this is a fantastic crew.  Bensson just popped in one day and said he wants to get some family photos and we are so glad he did!  His in-laws were in town so we were able to get the kids but with three total generations which is always really special.  Everyone looked great and did a fantastic job and the kids were SO CUTE!  Let’s get to the pics:

Fantastic Crew…

In a session like this you generally start with the most important photo because you never quite know exactly how long the little ones might last, so we started with the entire group and we used our blue / grey mottled backdrop:

Fantastic Crew

Beautiful family!

Next we just did the unit of 6…

Fantastic Crew

We also have a little bit of behind the scenes fun from Snapchat…

And now let’s highlight each of the kids!  First the dudes….

Fantastic Crew

How awesome is he with the bowtie?

Jayden and Jaxon Are Back, Getting Big, and They Are Total Characters!

Jayden and Jaxon are total characters and they came back to the studio for some pics with their mommy Marla!  It had been a while since they had been here so we were excited to have them back and boy are they growing up! 

Total Characters!

We kept this session pretty simple with white shirts and jeans on these dudes with the white backdrop and we’ll start with a little brotherly love!

Total Characters

We also had some fun with some behind the scenes first on Facebook Live:

Now let’s give each of these guys their own turn in the spotlight:

First big brother Jayden:

Miss Cheryl Brings The Fam To Frameable Faces For Family Pictures!

Miss Cheryl is one of our faves and she’s known by that name to many in the community from nursery school days when she taught so many children including ours!  So when Cheryl called to say she wanted to bring her crew in we were so excited!  Everybody did a great job and we were able to capture some fantastic photos – memories that will last them a lifetime!

We kept this pretty simple with the white backdrop – a nice clean and contemporary look…

Miss Cheryl

Such great expressions – a happy crew!

Miss Cheryl

Just the grandparents with the grandkids… such a classic photo!

And now a couple with the family units…

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!
