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!

One Of Our Favorite Frameable Families Has Grown By One More!

One of our favorite all time Frameable Families has grown and they returned this year to let us help them capture the next chapter in their family story!  We love Parmesh, Nalini and Neil and this post includes highlights of both their maternity session and the newborn photos of Niko!!!

Nalini wasn’t all too comfortable when she was here for the maternity session but you wouldn’t know it by the results and she was a total trooper!  Let’s take a look at a few of those first:

Preparing For Niko

Niko hadn’t arrived when the family three came to the studio for these maternity photos and Neil was excited with the anticipation of getting a brand new little brother!

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!

The Doug & Ally Morning Show PODCAST is here!

 

Morning Show Podcast

We have a PODCAST!!!  I guess you could say this story began almost 5 years ago really… We have been livestreaming on Periscope since March 31st, 2015 – 5 days after the app launched in the app store.  Since then we’ve met people virtually through Periscope all over the world, spoken at the Periscope Community Summit (Summit Live) in San Francisco, visited and/or photographed people we’ve met in Biloxi, Pensacola, Orlando, Mobile, New York, and Harbor Springs, restored photos for people around the globe and had visitors from Periscope at the studio from Chicago, Delaware, Washington D.C., Kansas, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, England, and Australia!  Doug got one of his digital marketing clients from Periscope too!

It’s been one amazing ride.

Our show is on in the mornings generally Tuesday – Friday (and once in a while Saturday) sometime between 9:30 and 11:30EST and usually goes for about an hour.  There’s lots of fun banter and a crew who is known as the “Octosquad” – plenty of shenanigans and inside jokes, not to mention telemarketing pranks.

We even have a hilarious logo designed by the amazing Rich Nairn and you can see the “history” of the Doug & Ally Morning Show in the form of his doodles at our Pinterest board… should give you a chuckle.

Morning Show Podcast

Enter The Doug & Ally Morning Show Podcast!

Meanwhile, over time our peeps started suggesting that we start a podcast.  Podcasting is becoming a popular medium – people love to be able to listen to them on demand while they’re commuting, making dinner – in their car, on their headphones, with Alexa….  So after a brief series of episodes exclusively on our Patreon page which was subscription only, we decided to reboot it and open it up to the masses!  We have three episodes live already and you can listen to them at the following embedded players and/or links.  We’re still adding new platforms and we’re already almost everywhere you likely get your podcasts. 

One last thing.  The podcast is free.  IF you are inclined to support the podcast, we would like to treat this separately in terms of the time it takes to line up guests, record, and invest in the podcast.  We’d like to start upgrading to some proper equipment to upgrade the quality as well.  So if you want to visit the Patreon page and subscribe we will give a shout out on the show when we get supporters, we’ll send you a Doug & Ally Morning Show bookmark and we’ll keep growing it – maybe with behind the scenes goodies and who knows what else?  Like I said – it’s not required, but it’s worth it for some people to get involved and help grow this thing, and then we’ll get sponsors and maybe we can make a few dollars!  We’ll be grateful if you do!

The current episode is the one that shows on the embedded players below, but you can click on the links and binge ALL of them from the beginning!  Subscribe on your platform of choice and reviews (on Apple podcasts / iTunes for example) help too!

So enjoy, and there will be more to come – we’re just getting started!!!

Our host site is Anchor.fm and here is the podcast player for it.

You can also get us on Spotify:

RadioPublic:

Castbox – you can see all 3 episodes in their embedded player (kinda cool):

TuneIn (which is the one Alexa uses – you should be able to just ask Alexa to play The Doug & Ally Morning Show Podcast!

Here are ALL the links (so far….)

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.
 
Brennan
Looking sharp!
 
Brennan
Surrounded by family and ready to celebrate this awesome rite of passage!
 

On the Bimah

Brennan

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!
 
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:
Brennan
 
 
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!!!
