Mashana is 50 and FABULOUS – and So Is Her Crew!

Mashana is a dynamo.  An extrovert with a huge infectious personality, she came to us with some ideas for her 50th birthday and what a time we had with her and her crew!  Or should we say her crews!  She brought the fam and she brought her girls for some BFF pics – oh and she had a massive “50” delivered to the studio for the session too which we highly recommend YOU do.  So much fun!

Mashana is 50 and Fabulous!

We started with a few of the fam so we’ll share one of those first:

GREAT looking family!

Next up here’s one with Mashana and hubby Chris!

Mashana

These two don’t lack for style…. power couple!

Here’s a fun TikTok from the session – make sure you’re following us there!  Check out the masked mademoiselles and little man’s smile (the arrow points it out)!!!

The Crying Baby In The Window Grows Up And Has His Bar Mitzvah!

Time sure flies… 
 
So if you’ve been in the Orchard Mall you’ve undoubtedly noticed the crying baby in the window of our studio – it’s impossible not to and that photo has provided many a smile and a laugh to a passerby over the past decade-plus…
 
Crying Baby
Well that little crying baby is our nephew Gabe, and Gabe hit the milestone of his Bar Mitzvah this past Fall!  Like many events that were scheduled for 2020 there were many adjustments that had to be made on the fly – in Gabe’s case a postponement and then a scaling back that may have bummed out and even broken a “lesser man”, but Gabe took it in stride and didn’t let a crappy year dim his shine!  With a little creativity and a lot of hard work it was still an event to remember.  I know we always will!
 

The Crying Baby Grows Up

 
Just look at this dude:
 
That pic sums it up, but we have plenty more highlights to share, taken by our awesome event photographer Angela!
 
Gabe’s service was immediate family only.  BUT…. everyone was still “there” not only on zoom but in the form of cutouts like you see at sporting events!!!  They filled the sanctuary and I (Doug) grabbed this panorama with my iPhone of the scene!
 
How cool is that?  This was a surprise for Gabe – just one of many ways his parents Stacy and Jason made it special for him (cutouts by Winning Imprints)!
 
Here is the man at the bimah with the Torah!
 
After a small outdoor “tailgate” in the parking lot with a few masked and distanced family members we headed back to the house for a very small get together, with all of Gabe’s favorite foods!
 
Gotta love the special edition Gabriel gear!  Hoodies by MyLocker.net in Detroit!  We even had Gabriel masks!
 
Yum!  Cookies by Sweet Hart’s Cookie Co.!
 
Here’s Gabe with his fam!
 
….and here is one below with his cousins!  That’s our Lacey & Tony with Gabe, Lindsay and Sam!
 
And we’ll leave you with this one of the man of the day and his pup Hazel!
 
And there you have it – a fabulous day full of nachas for Gabe’s Bar Mitzvah!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of that amazing day!

Ty Didn’t Let 2020 Spoil The Celebration Of His Bar Mitzvah!

Ty is a great kid and like many youngsters he had to adapt a celebration to the times that we’re in.  2020 was a challenging year for everybody but you wouldn’t know it spending time with this dude for his bar mitzvah which took place several months ago!  This was the second time around with a mitzvah for us with this family so let’s goooo!

Bar Mitzvah Celebration 2020 Style

First let’s take a couple peaks at the session that Ally did with Ty ahead of time for some cutouts to put in the backyard for the scaled back outdoor gathering they had planned.  Ty is a multi-sport athlete so we covered all the bases (pun intended) on a great day with his mom Angela!  Let’s start with football…

Celebration

Stud!

Now from gridiron to pitch…. soccer!

Celebration

Pretty cool huh?  Next we got him “throwing that speedball by ya” as Springsteen would say…

Celebration

And last but not least Ty just being Ty…

Celebration

Good lookin’ kid.

Fast forward to the big day and our event photographer Angela who captured these next few…

Celebration

Gorgeous family!

They had the service outside at the temple:

Celebration

Love that pic with proud parents Angela and Danny looking on…!

And we’ll leave you with this one from the backyard with the dunk tank!  No pandemic was going to steal ALL the fun!

Celebration

HAHAHAHA!!!  How great is that?

And there you have it – highlights of what STILL was a great celebration!  We hope you enjoyed these!

Let These Recent Seniors With Family Members Make You Smile!

Through it all – through this challenging school year we still had a fantastic “part 1” of the Class of 2021 senior pictures!  We say “part 1” because there are always a few spring seniors and we figure there may be a few more than usual this year (fingers crossed) because 2020 was……..2020. 

Generally when we post highlights of our sessions we focus on the senior but we do have family add-ons available and sometimes family members – maybe just a sib or a parent or a pet jumps in, so we thought we’d gather a handful of these and give them their own blog post!  Lots of love in these images!!!

Seniors have Frameable Family Members!

No commentary – just family!  We LOVE these peeps!

Family Members Family Members Family Members

And there you have it!  Wonderful families we’ve enjoyed spending time with over the past year!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights!

Checking In With Alexandra For An Adorable 6 Month Session!

Alexandra made her debut at the studio as a newborn back in March, and we couldn’t wait to get her back for what was an adorable 6 month session!  Something to make you smile – it certainly made us smile!  Kim and Adam are very cool – we enjoy them, and cousin Cameron even came along to help.  Let’s get to some smushy highlights of this cutie!!!

Alexandra’s Adorable 6 Month Session!

Adorable 6 month

OMG.  Right?

Next it was panda time… hehe…  

Adorable 6 month

Such a cute panda!  We have some fun behind the scenes from this part of the session from Facebook:

 

And one more panda pic!

Adorable 6 month

One of the reasons we love Kim and Adam is they have Alexandra started early on good music – this little one loves Bowie and Depeche Mode so we brought them into the mix so to speak!

Adorable 6 month

Love it!  And there you have it – an adorable 6 month session with Alexandra indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her, and as one of our baby planners she’ll be back for her first birthday!  We can’t wait…

Our Angela and Cam Are Growing The Family Again!

We love our Angela.  She’s been with us as our event photographer for close to a decade at this point so many of you know her and she and hubby Cam just had another baby!  We are so thrilled for them, and even though we were not able to photograph their newborn session for little Autumn this time, we did get a maternity session (the last one was epic too) in in the first week of March at the studio and we have some of the wonderful highlights to show you here!

Alexandra Made Her Debut To The World At The Studio!

We have had a little run on newborns this year already, and we are looking forward to seeing them again safely for their 6 month sessions!  We fell in love with Kim the first time we met her at the studio and her hubby Adam whom we met when Kim returned with him and new addition Alexandra is a great guy too!  We really enjoyed having them at the studio for these wonderful newborn portraits!  We hope the highlights of the day Alexandra made her debut bring a smile to your face like they do ours!

Brian and Maeghan’s Frameable Family Is Really What It’s All About!

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!

Frameable Family

Love it – and here’s some fun behind the scenes with the crew from Facebook!


 Now the sweetest sibling pic….

Frameable FamilyLove the black and white of these two…

And now the kids get their own moments – ladies first!  Ava is so adorable!  Loving those glasses!

Frameable Family

And we’ll leave you with this one of Nick – Ally loves when guys wear pink!

Frameable Family

We thoroughly enjoyed this crew – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with them!
