It’s Time For The Class of 2020 Spokesmodel Panorama…..RAMA!!!

YES it’s time for the Class of 2020 Spokesmodel Panorama…..RAMA!!!  This is our third annual post like this, and while these are NOT professional photos, they are a fun behind the scenes way of representing what we’ve been up to with our new crew over the last few months in panoramic style!  I took these (Doug – not Ally) with my iPhone XR and we love to stack ’em up and give them their own blog post!  Now that we’ve completed all of our 10 spokesmodel sessions we can start rolling these things out – so fun!  And what a great crew we have this year….

2020 Spokesmodel Panorama

Yes we went to some of the usual spots including studio sessions early when the weather was still freezing, but we also went to a few new ones including a couple locations in Ann Arbor and we also have spokesmodels from Clarkston High School and Ann Arbor Skyline this year!  A first for us!  So in no particular order, here is your class of 2020 panorama…..RAMA!!!

Taking Aim At Adin for a Class of 2020 Senior Spokesmodel Session!

Adin is a really good kid – we enjoyed hanging with him a lot on our spokesmodel session for him as he represents the class of 2020 for Frameable Faces at Frankel Jewish Academy!  Easygoing, personable and really smart, we are really happy to have him on our crew!  We photographed him in the studio as well as on location which is pretty typical for our seniors and we have a few highlights for you, so let’s get to ’em!
 

Taking Aim At Adin

We started off in the studio with a somewhat dressy look on the black background and these came out quite nicely:
 
Adin
Good lookin’ dude!
 
We also have some behind the scenes fun first from the studio from the Instagram livestream we did:
 

At this point we headed outside to get some location photos… first on the steps:
 
Adin
 
And we have more behind the scenes from that set up on Facebook Live – take a look!
 

And we’ll leave you with a couple more outdoor photos of our guy!
 
Adin
You just know a genuine smile when you see one – this kid has it and we also like that pop of color in the background!
 
And one more…
 
Adin
Love that wood background – textures are a lot of fun to work with!
 
So there you have it!  We took aim at Adin indeed and we’re looking forward to his return for his senior session along with the rest of the class of 2020 which is starting SOON!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Boudoir And Bold: Kathryn Katches Fire!

Boudoir photography is fun, sexy and empowering and we love presenting a few peeks from sessions like these!  Kathryn was a blast to work with and she oozes confidence in these photos…  Confidence is indeed sexy and boudoir sessions can be great for couples and for significant others, but they start with the subject – they have to be for you first, and you’ll feel great doing it.  Kathryn is proof.  Let’s take a look at a few highlights from her session which were captured on location…

Boudoir and Bold: Kathryn Katches Fire

Love love love these – she looks amazing.  Hope you enjoyed these and maybe they’ve given you an idea or two….?  Treat yourself (and maybe your significant other too if you have one) to a session like this – you will not regret it.

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!

Ally Photographs Alli – The Sequel! A Stunner Of A Senior Session!

When Ally photographs Alli it’s a good time – we know because it’s happened a couple times before – once when Alli was just a wee lass, once earlier this year for her senior spokesmodel session, and now we bring you highlights of the senior sequel!

Ally Photographs Alli – The Sequel…

We spent most of our time on location for some beautiful summer themed images and we definitely got what we set out for…

Ally Photographs Alli

So pretty!!!  One of our favorite meadows and Alli looks amazing.

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the session and we also hear from proud mom Risa who joined us!  First from the meadow on Instagram!

 

Now let’s get up close and personal with our model…

Ally Photographs Alli

LOVE. IT.

At this point we switched locations to get a few photos by the water at Orchard Lake.  It was a perfect day too…

Ally Photographs Alli

Beautiful!

We have more behind the scenes fun here as well this time from Facebook Live:

And we’ll leave you with one more:

Ally Photographs Alli

Ally photographing Alli – the Sequel was absolutely worth the wait!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

A Stunning Breakaway Senior Session In Hockeytown With Morgan!

A breakaway in hockey is when a player has the puck and an open skating lane to the net with no one in front of her.  That’s how we felt with Morgan on her senior session – nothing stopping us and nothing stopping this girl!  Morgan is one of our spokesmodels for the class of 2019 and we were looking forward to this session – especially since Little Caesars Arena is her team’s home ice and we were able to get on the ice for a few photos!  But more on that later…

A Stunning Breakaway Senior Session…

Morgan’s mom Jodi joined us for an overall epic day in Detroit which started on Belle Isle.  We really thought we might be in trouble with the weather but that day was pretty much do or die scheduling wise and it started to pour on the way down.  Uh oh….  BUT – lo and behold it stopped when we got to Belle Isle and there wasn’t another drop from the time we started photographing Morgan!  Let’s start with this amazing new angle of the D as the backdrop for this stunning image of our girl!

Breakaway Senior

WOWWWWWWW.  Such a cool image and Morgan looks fantastic!

Here’s one up close and personal:

Breakaway Senior

At this point we headed over to Eastern Market to get some murals and we fired up the Instagram LIVE for some behind the scenes fun:

And here’s a cool mural shot with Morgan’s reflection in the water from the day’s rains…

Breakaway Senior

Just love that one…

Now it was time to head over to Little Caesar’s Arena and with a little assist from Red Wings Zamboni legend and building manager Al Sobotka we headed on down to the practice ice where Morgan’s team the Little Caesar’s 19U Girls AAA plays.  Here’s the fun behind the scenes from Facebook Live!

And we’ll leave you with this fun photo from the ice!

Breakaway Senior

Okay actually we’ll leave you with the Snapchat story from the day because it’s just too good…. including the fiery setup in the studio after a stop at Chili Mustard Onions for lunch!  So much to cover – too much to cram all of it into a blog post!!! Lol…  

And there you have it – a stunning breakaway senior session with Morgan in Hockeytown indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Classifying Claudia’s Closeups as Clearly The Cat’s Pajamas!

Alliteration runs wild as we’re classifying Claudia’s Closeups as Clearly The Cat’s Pajamas!!!  They are indeed and we’re not surprised.  Claudia has represented our studio as a spokesmodel this year at our beloved alma mater North Farmington High School and we couldn’t be prouder.  She’s really “put her best foot forward” – more on that in a sec.  The truth is we do love this girl and we’ve been so happy to get to know her and her delightful momma Sandy.  We have a ball when we’re hanging out with these girls.

Best Foot Forward

Meanwhile Claudia achieved a little fame this year – well part of her did.  You see, our school now has a tradition that has become well known and even covered in the online media such as Mashable which involves dressing up as hilarious characters for their student IDs and these shenanigans tend to go viral.  Here’s the screen shot from the Mashable article which saved Claudia’s as the best for last…..

What an ID!!!!   LOL….so hilarious.  Nice work Claudia!

Meanwhile we wanted to get some photos of not just Claudia’s foot, so we headed out on location to a few natural settings on a nice sunny day armed with a few wardrobe changes and here are the highlights!

Claudia’s Closeups

Closeups

Wow!  Claudia looks amazing in the meadow!  We have some fun behind the scenes action for you as well, 

And another result from the preserve:

CloseupsStunning…

At this point we moved to another location where we saw (and avoided) a bee’s nest about the size of a large watermelon…. whoa.  But we got more great photos – all of Claudia’s closeups from this day as we stated in the title were the cat’s pajamas…

Closeups

We also have more behind the scenes fun this time from Facebook:

 

And one last photo from our day:

Closeups

Just beautiful!!!

So there you have it – classfying Claudia’s closeups as the cat’s pajamas was clearly on point – wouldn’t you agree?  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Get Your Professional Headshots! These Three Did – Here Are Examples!

Professional headshots are important for lots of reasons and lots of different needs.  For starters they look….well….professional, and if you are looking for a job, promoting your brand, modeling, or looking to get your personality across in a way that does it right your best bet is to trust a pro – not just Ally but in general.  Here we have a few recent ones to share with you just for fun, partly because it may be helpful, give you an idea or two, and let’s be real – we just like these people and we want them on our blog.

Get Your Professional Headshots!

We’ll start with Jack.  Jack is a bad dude and freshly graduated from the University of Michigan – he’s heading out into the workplace, already has a gig lined up and needs a nice professional photo to put online – like LinkedIn perhaps.  When it comes to professional headshots for many LinkedIn is the go to because that’s typically where you represent your professional self.  Yes LinkedIn is social, but it’s social in a professional context so if you’re a consultant or an attorney you may not want a funny photo of you eating a burger which could be good for a giggle on Facebook for example.  These are relatively standard with a slight difference in posture from one to the next which signals a little more engagement with the viewer respectively…

Jack

Professional Headshots

And now leaning in a little…

Professional Headshots

There are lots of nuances to the posing depending on how you want to represent yourself…

Of course it wouldn’t be a Frameable Faces blog post without some behind the scenes fun right?  Just a quick blast from twitter…

Leah

Next we have Leah – Leah is an aspiring model and needed some photos to send to agencies and eventually maybe some comp cards – we do plenty of these and they’re a lot of fun!  Leah was great in front of the camera!!!

Professional Headshots

Here’s a little Facebook fun behind the scenes from Leah’s session….  

And here’s one more from Leah…  what a rock star!

Professional Headshots

Ken

Last but not least here’s Ken – yes you recognize him as the play-by-play announcer for the Detroit Red Wings on Fox Sports Detroit.  Ken is obviously an established guy and needed a few different photos for various things he has going and in his case while we used the same blue / grey mottled backdrop we used for Jack above we changed it up and did a couple professional and a couple casual.  Different styles for different uses.

Here’s the casual in three quarter length:

Professional Headshots

Some behind the scenes fun where you can see Ken switched to a more formal look…

…and the result:

Professional Headshots

Success!

And now all three of them have the professional headshots to help them with their successes in the world!  Hope you enjoyed this photo essay – we sure enjoyed having them here at the studio!

A Sweet Time Was Had By All At Dylan’s Candy Bat Mitzvah!

It’s always a great honor to be trusted with the responsibility of taking the photos of an important event – a milestone in the life of a family and a bat mitzvah is certainly one that fits that description!  In this case we are presenting a few highlights from Dylan’s recent bat mitzvah with the party theme of “Dylan’s Candy Bat Mitzvah” with the photos by our wonderful event photographer Angela!

A Sweet Time for Dylan

We actually remember when Dylan was born and we have known her parents Danny and Angela (don’t get confused – yes our event photographer and the bat mitzvah’s mom’s names are both Angela) for well before that, so these photos are really neat to have on our blog!  Let’s start with the star – Dylan!

Candy Bat Mitzvah

The beautiful bat mitzvah girl!

We are also big fans of this photo which Angela is able to capture at each and every mitzvah – the proud parents looking on…

Candy Bat Mitzvah

And how about a slightly-silly-but-spot-on family portrait….?  You know they were having fun.

Candy Bat Mitzvah

Dylan’s Candy Bat Mitzvah!

Let’s head to the party shall we?  Here’s a great photo from the candle lighting…

Candy Bat Mitzvah

…and here’s Dylan with her crew:

Candy Bat Mitzvah

We’ll end it up on the traditional hora dance as the girl of the hour gets lifted up above the crowd!

Candy Bat Mitzvah

And there you have it!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of Dylan’s celebration!

It’s Time For The Class of 2019 Spokesmodel Panorama…..RAMA!!!

Here we go with the Class of 2019 Spokesmodel Panorama…..RAMA!!!  We did this last year and this is just our fun way of stacking these behind the scenes iPhone panoramic photos that Doug took during our spokesmodel sessions.  There’s something cool about the way the scope of a panoramic photo can capture and distort a scene in a weird and wonderful way!  These are not “professional” photos by any stretch and are not meant to be taken too seriously, but they are a fun way to recap our last few months with our Class of 2019 crew as we head into senior season!

2019 Spokesmodel Panorama

This year’s sessions took us to the usual haunts as well as a new one or two… burned out buildings, majestic theaters, trails and parks, and of course the Frameable Faces studio!  We have such an outstanding team representing us this year for the class of 2019 and so in no particular order, here is your panorama…..RAMA!
