The Twins Return For Senior Pictures: Part 2 – Sydney Sparkles!

As promised, here is part 2 of the twins return to our blog with Sasha gracing our site first (she stunned) and now….Sydney Sparkles!  These girls have been a delight as we said before, representing our studio as spokesmodels for the class of 2023 and their mom Danielle joined us for the follow up on their senior pictures!  What a day we had!  Let’s get to some highlights focusing on Syd!

Sydney Sparkles!

We started out at Novi High School…

Sydney Sparkles

Look at that adorable Wildcat!

Here’s some behind the scenes fun of the girls from Facebook

At this point we headed to the farm for a few photos with Arcus the horse!  Here’s a great one…

Sydney Sparkles

Love it!!!  And let’s also give a shout out to Haley Cassar on makeup for the girls!

Here’s another one from that location…

Sydney Sparkles

Just gorgeous…

And we have to say here that the following behind the scenes TikTok is one of our favorites of ALL TIME.  Sydney has her “RBF” going for the photo above, but Ally destroys it with a well placed F-bomb and Syd’s reaction is priceless.  Guaranteed to make you smile!

@frameablefaces Yay @Sydney!!! 🥰💚(and Arkus)🐴 An epic #seniorpictures session! #frameablefaces #Horse #poms #ClassOf2023 #Photoshoot #Photography ♬ SAND PEOPLE – Ashes To Amber

Here’s one from Kensington Metro Park:
 
Sydney Sparkles
So pretty!
 
And we’ll leave you with this one of the twins together…
 
Love them!
 
And there you have it!  Sydney Sparkles indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of both of the girls’ sessions!

Krazy For Katie and Her Detroit Senior Session!

We’re Krazy for Katie!  She’s funny – and smart and adorable – a senior student athlete at West Bloomfield High School and we had a blast with her, her mom Ann and her pup Bella!  We did some studio work along with a jaunt down to Detroit and the whole session was a winner…  let’s get to some highlights!

Krazy for Katie!

Let’s start in the studio with Katie and Bella who gave us plenty of smiles for the camera – like this one!

Krazy For Katie

Rose Shows Up All The Other Flowers In The Garden On Her Senior Pics!

Rose makes her second appearance on the blog in (appropriately) a GARDEN, and she showed up all those other flowers there – they didn’t stand a chance.  Rose is a class of 2023 spokesmodel for us and a senior at Walled Lake Northern, and we love her.  Her mom Sharyn and dad Alan joined us for a memorable day with great weather for the encore and she slayed the game which was not surprising, so let’s get to some highlights!

Rose Shows Up The Other Flowers

This was a brand new spot for us – let us know if you’re interested in using it – it will pretty much always be Rose’s since she was first…

Rose

Gorgeous!!!!!!

And a shout out to our neighbors down the hall The Beauty Lounge for Rose’s hair and makeup…

We also have some fun behind the scenes first from Facebook:

Rose

Okay wow…

Rose

And wow again – we love this photo – something about the little lean in her pose and that awesome smile.

A little more behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram

We Are Totally Ryled Up For Ryley – In The Best Way

Ryley has us all RYLED up – in the best way!  One of our favorite sessions perhaps of all time….  We already knew Ryley from afar from TikTok – a little ray of sunshine who followed us there at least a year or two ago and we followed back, so we were excited when we got the call to do her senior pics from her mom Jeannie!  We photographed her at a location we had never been to and it was pretty amazing, and then we followed that up with a sunset at a relative’s home.  Wow.  The photos will speak for themselves and Ryley really brought her A game, so let’s get to the highlights!

Ryled Up For Ryley

We started out with some nature…

Ryley

She is ADORABLE.

We also have some behind the scenes fun first from Facebook:


 At this point it was time to get some “friends” into the act…

Ryley

Nothing wrong with a little horsing around right?  Ha!

We have some more behind the scenes from Instagram which will really MOOve you.

And then it was time to goose up the proceedings even more…

Ryley

No animals were even mildly annoyed in the making of these photographs (we’re pretty sure).

What a day!  Oh but wait, there’s more.

We don’t have a lot of words to describe the photo we’ll leave you with….

Ryley

WOW.

And there you have it!  You can see why we were all RYLED up for Ryley and her senior pictures – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with her!

Adventures With Amanda In Detroit For Senior Pictures!

Okay Amanda is adorable.  We had such a fantastically epic day of adventuring around Detroit with her and her mom Michelle – one we won’t soon forget!  We were able to get into some exclusive spots and we did plenty of exploring…  So let’s get to a few highlights shall we?

Adventures With Amanda!

Let’s start in a spot we haven’t been to in years…

Amanda

Beautiful!  Amanda turned it on from the word go – a rockstar in front of Ally’s camera!  Here’s a little fun behind the scenes from Facebook – you can tell it was pretty hot lol:

From there we headed to the DIA for a few photos…

Amanda

Gorgeous…

Love this next one with the vibrant colors (and the vibrant smile)!!!

Amanda

At this point we went exploring and found a bridge we’ve never used before, so if you know our history and how we roll you know that it will now be known as Amanda’s Bridge!  Here’s the behind the scenes from Instagram!

Erma Turns 90 and the Celebration Is One To Remember!

Erma turns 90 only once, so when her family gathered together to celebrate her it was really special!  We were thrilled to be a part of their weekend with these amazing family portraits!  You couldn’t have ordered a more perfect day either over the 4th of July weekend and we met them at Tam-O-Shanter Country Club for the proceedings… let’s get to a few highlights!

Erma Turns 90

Let’s talk about Erma for a second – what a character!  She’s so funny – she kept saying we had to pay her to take her picture – haha!  You’ll get a feel for how much fun we had with her and her wonderful family with multiple generations on hand in this behind the scenes livestream from Facebook:

And here are a few highlighted photos – we mixed it up and took photos of each family unit and lots of combinations!

Erma Turns 90

We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with all of them!

Elona Is Sixteen and She Brought Her Crew To Celebrate!

Okay so we love Elona – we’ve been photographing her over the years starting when she was just a wee little ballerina and a canvas of her hung on our wall for years!

She was adorable then and she’s adorable now!  We had a great time with her and her friends here at the studio, mom Harolyn and dad Ulrich were on hand as well and we’re excited to present these highlights of the session!  So let’s get to it!

Elona is Sixteen!

 Here’s the birthday girl:

All In With Allison – In The Water For Senior Pictures That Is!

Allison is a legacy Frameable senior from a great family!  We had the honor of photographing her older sister Clare two years ago so we were thrilled when we got the call from their lovely mom Nicole for Allison’s turn in front of Ally’s camera!  And what a great session it was – a perfect day to bounce around West Bloomfield and finish up in the water!  We’ll get to that in a bit since that is usually the end of the session when we do it…

All In With Allison

Let’s start in one of our favorite meadows…

Allison

Gorgeous!!!

Let’s also give a shoutout to Mandy Rose Studio for Allison’s hair and makeup!

A Weekend Of Giving Back With Zoofest and For Those Who Stayed!

We have always tried to give back to the community wherever possible and this past weekend was one to remember with TWO different nonprofits we are involved with that mean a lot to us.

Words Of Hope 4 Life – ZOOFEST

Let’s start with mental health in general and the amazing organization Words Of Hope 4 Life!  We have lost too many people we know – young people in particular who have taken their own lives over the last few years including people we have photographed like Noah Cutler,  Zach Raider,  and Anya Middle.  All three were delightful, vibrant people.

It’s been devastating.

We decided we had to get involved – to try to make some kind of difference.  To help end any remaining stigma that exists around mental health in any form and make sure young people are loved and supported.  The pandemic in particular took a toll on everyone and resources are needed to help people who are struggling.  With that in mind we have gotten involved with Words Of Hope 4 Life and we sponsored Zoofest this past weekend at the Detroit Zoo which included the Wild Walk 4 Mental Health.  We were at the Frameable Faces Selfie Station and we also took photos of the event.  It was a big success!  A perfect, sunny room temperature day and the event was well attended!

Here’s a livestream we did on Facebook that will give you a little idea and just remember our amazing event photographer Angela gets the urge to dance anytime we put her on camera: 

Here are a few more images from Zoofest – you can see all the photos Angela took at this link:

Zoofest

Tons of activities, food and vendors under the tent!

Zoofest

A great turnout and fun for all!

Zoofest

YUM!!!

Zoofest

18 year NFL veteran & 7-time pro-bowler Lomas Brown gets interviewed about Zoofest!

Zoofest

We’re happy you’re with us – every day. You matter!!!

Zoofest

Here we are at the selfie station!

For Those Who Stayed

So you may know that Doug played football at the University of Michigan.  He was an outside linebacker on the 1988-89 teams that won back-to-back Big Ten Championships and went to back-to-back Rose Bowls before a knee injury sidelined him, and he continued to work with the staff before graduating in 1992.  It was an amazing experience.

The thing is, playing football at that level is like going through a meat grinder.  It’s HARD.  And for many players the rollercoaster of emotion and the physical brutality of the game isn’t easy to handle.  Some guys come from challenging backgrounds, suddenly find themselves famous at 18, 19 or 20 with massive expectations, and then after a few short years it ends.  In some cases it ends abruptly due to injury, or they don’t make it in the NFL, or they make it briefly in the NFL but aren’t prepared for the comedown of it being over when it ends.  Not everyone has the storybook ending of a long successful football career with lots of money and/or their health intact, and the effects of CTE in particular can be devastating.  Depression, disability, poverty, and yes suicide – these things do happen to the fraternity of brothers who wore the maize and blue.  For Those Who Stayed was created to help and provide resources for those who gave so many thrills to the hundreds of thousands who fill Michigan Stadium on Fall Saturdays in Ann Arbor, and Doug is on the board of directors.

We headed from Zoofest on Sunday to Grand Rapids for the Sunday night reception dinner and the 2nd Annual FTWS Golf Outing at Thousand Oaks Golf Club on Monday, and what a great event it was!  We sponsored a hole and Ally took photos of the foursomes.

Here are a couple of livestreams, and if you’re a fan of Michigan football you’ll recognize a few of these folks…

First from Sunday night – Mike Smith was presented with two beautiful framed photos of his only touchdown for Michigan that he scored in 1977 vs. Northwestern and he was pretty moved.

Next Doug went around to get some other former players on camera in the morning during registration and breakfast…

And here’s one more when Doug’s foursome with Barry Kelley,  Mike Tilmann & Dorian Taylor arrived at the Frameable Faces hole!

Here’s Doug’s foursome!

Barry Kelley, Doug, Michael Tilmann, Dorian Taylor

Our hole!

Fatheads of all the participating players were stationed all along the golf course!

Our crew – missing Tony who was leading a Western Trip with Camp Tamarack!

Doug, Chris Hutchinson, Paul Manning, Barry Kelley – from the incoming freshman class of 1988!

Overall a fantastic and rewarding weekend and we look forward to more!  You can get involved in either of these organizations at any time and Viewfest is coming up on September 17th with Words Of Hope 4 Life in Walled Lake!

We hope you enjoyed the recap of our weekend and we urge you to get involved – make a difference!
