We Were Awed By Audrey On Her Senior Spokesmodel Session!

We are in awe of Audrey!  We were certainly awed by her on her spokesmodel session – what a cool human.  We actually have so much in common with this family it’s scary…  They’ve rescued a bunch of cats – so did we and we still have a couple of them.  Audrey’s dad is in a band.  So is Doug.  They don’t eat meat.  We don’t either….  It just seemed like the planets aligned for us to meet them and Audrey’s mom Michelle is as cool as Audrey – the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.  Audrey herself is a sharp cookie with personality to burn – we gotta say we think we really recruited well for this year’s spokesmodel crew!!!  With Audrey we are also extra excited because she’s our very FIRST Troy Athens Redhawk!!!

Awed By Audrey

So Audrey came ready to roll on a day where the weather forecast kept changing.  It was supposed to be a total rainout, and then it wasn’t, but then it did rain, but then it stopped….. sheesh.  We were prepared to just go all studio but as you’ll see we did make it outside in the end.  We’ll start with the studio though on the black background with the black couch which is a look we love – especially with Audrey’s contrasting blonde hair:

AudreyLove that one!

Next we broke out our grey fabric for the first time with this class of 2019 spokesmodel crew.  We have two greys – the paper and the fabric and we like both a lot.  We also did a little behind the scenes livestreaming for this part on Facebook Live – take a look by clicking on the video below!

And here is one of the grey background results…

Audrey

Stunning.

Dodging the Downpour

Just before Audrey and Michelle arrived at the studio it was pouring outside – we can hear it from the roof above our studio when it comes down hard.  We thought we weren’t going outdoors at all.  But then it stopped and the forecast was showing only “cloudy” with 5%-15% chance of rain the rest of the day.  So we went out.  Right when we got to our location it started raining again and we decided to wait it out for a little bit as we saw our opportunity slipping away….  we were in two cars and we had a group text going…

 

Audrey

Hehe….

But lo and behold just when we were about to call it a day the rain stopped!  We sprung into action and got a couple more gems – we even got in another livestream on Instagram!

Audrey

Here’s our fun behind the scenes Instagram Live which skips a little because the signal wasn’t great…

We’ll leave you with one more from outside – we were happy to get these because Spring is finally arriving and there’s a little color out there now….

Audrey

And there you have it!  We were certainly Awed by Audrey – we can’t wait to get her in front of Ally’s camera again for her senior pictures!

Getting To Know Nadia On A Nice Fall Day In Michigan!

We love getting to know our seniors and on a nice fall day with those Pure Michigan colors outside we got to know Nadia a little better on her senior session!  She’s a total sweetheart – and what better day to photograph her than on her birthday!!!  Nadia’s mom Cherish joined us as well and we had a lot of fun with her too as you’ll see in a sec.  Meanwhile it was a little chilly that day (although that’s all mental as we like to remind our seniors – ha) but the conditions were still just fine for photos and we focused on location shots so let’s get to ’em:

Getting To Know Nadia

Know Nadia

Love that shot with the steps as the backdrop!

We also have some fun behind the scenes for you starting with the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

And let’s take a look at a couple more…

Know Nadia

Looking super cute in the hooded vest and you can see some hints of fall in the background as well as in this close up below…

Know Nadia

A nice pop of color with the scarf too!  We also have a little more behind the scenes this time from the Snapchat story from the day:

Fun with those snap filters!   Now we’ll leave you with one more:

Know Nadia

She looks amazing and nicely framed with some Pure Michigan fall leaves!

And there you have it – getting to know Nadia was wonderful and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Lo and Behold It’s Logan and His Killer Senior Session!

Lo and behold it’s Logan!  One of those surreal sessions for us since we’ve known this dude since he was a baby… he’s also a legacy here since his big sis Aria was one of our seniors last year (not to mention little sis Sedona had a Frameable bat mitzvah too) and this fam is one we’re very close with so this made for a fun one!

Lo and behold it’s Logan!

Meanwhile we were rained out twice for the location part of his session which was really the majority of what we had planned so we broke it up into two different days.  Logan’s mom Rachel came along and she and Ally did plenty of giggling getting Logan to laugh and smile…hehe…  So let’s start with a studio shot on day one:

Logan

Bad dude.

We also have some fun behind the scenes action starting with the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast from the studio:

Now let’s pick up the action on day 2 on location with some “Pure Michigan” colors!

Logan

Looking good!

For the behind the scenes on the location shoot we go to the snap story from Snapchat since there were some funny moments there…. lol!

And a couple more results:

Logan

How about that awesome Pure Michigan Color as a backdrop!!!

And we’ll leave you with one more…

Logan

And there you have it – lo and behold we made it happen with Logan even if we had to split up the session!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights!

Ben’s Senior Session In The Big D Was Totally Bomb!

Ben’s senior session in the big D was totally bomb indeed.  We are photographing seniors in Detroit more and more these days and Ben is a buddy of both of our kids – it’s kinda cool this year for us with some of our seniors because this is the class in between our 2 and Ben we’ve known for a while so it was a ton of fun.  Ben’s mom Erin is great too – she came along and we laughed a lot on this session!

Senior Session In The Big D…

We started on Belle Isle which is pretty typical for us when we head down to Detroit and we’ll pick up the action there with the fountain in the background:

Totally Bomb

At this point we headed over to The Belt alley to get a few more shots and we have some behind the scenes fun from the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast: 

…and here is one of the resulting photos:

Totally Bomb

We then made another stop over by the Eastern Market to one of our favorite empty buildings for a little urban decay vibe (even though Detroit is very much “un-decaying” and coming back strong these days).

Totally Bomb

Ben – totally Bomb!

We headed back to the studio at this point for a fiery finish to the session – totally bomb!  Here’s the fun behind the scenes action from the YouTube Live replay:

And the killer result!

Totally Bomb

Bad dude right there….

And there you have it – Ben’s session was totally bomb indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

In The Eden Of Orchard Lake For Senior Pictures….With Eden!

One of the definitions of an Eden is a place of pristine or abundant natural beauty, and Orchard Lake fits that description with beautiful Apple Island in the center.  It’s right up the road from the studio and a great backdrop for senior pictures!  So when an actual Eden came our way it seemed to make perfect sense to shoot there – by an “actual Eden” we mean our latest senior to highlight here on the blog – Eden!  Eden’s mom Lisa joined us and we had a great day starting in the studio so let’s begin there:

Eden

Love that – just simple on the white background!

We also have some fun behind the scenes as we usually do – first from the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:


 At this point we headed over to Orchard Lake and we also have some Pure Michigan fall color going on!

In the Eden Of Orchard Lake…

Eden

Beautiful – love Eden’s smile here and that’s Apple Island in the background with the pretty fall colors!  We also like the way the branch in the foreground frames her nicely…

Here’s another with more fall color:

Eden

So pretty!

Let’s take a look at some more behind the scenes action this time from the replay of our YouTube Live broadcast:

And one more from our day…

Eden

Love it – great one to finish with at our Eden with our Eden!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Nominating Nora For Nabbing A Perfect Senior Session!

In the category for Nabbing A Perfect Senior Session we are nominating Nora!!!  Holy moly – everything about this one is fabulous.  We’ve known Nora going back to elementary school days in the Magnet program at Roosevelt Elementary with our daughter Lacey, and she was always a sweetheart of a little girl then.  Now that’s she’s a senior she’s still the same sweetheart, just all grown up and more beautiful than ever!  We were so happy to have her here and we had so much fun with her and her mom Rajaa!  We’re pretty excited to present these sneak peeks…

Nominating Nora…

 We started out in the studio and we’ll highlight one of those photos first with the white outfit on the white backdrop.  White on white or black on black both look really nice if you light them properly!Nominating Nora

Great right?

We have some behind the scenes fun for you as usual – first from the setup above in the studio on Facebook Live:

For the location part of the session with Nora we started with a return to Orchard Lake at a spot we hadn’t photographed in years to get a photo with the lake in the background and here’s the result:

Nominating Nora

Spectacular!

Here’s some more behind the scenes – this time at the lake on YouTube Live:

At this point we had another stop to make – this time over behind the West Bloomfield Library and the light was perfect!  These next two photos Nora was really in the zone.  This first one in the meadow with the slight haze and the backlight on her hair…

Nominating Nora

…breathtakingly beautiful!!!  Wow.

And this one with Nora just relaxing up close and personal….

Nominating Nora

Awesome.  You can see why we are nominating Nora for nabbing a perfect senior session!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Closing In On Absolute Clearcut Cuteness With Chloe!

Hmmmm….. how to achieve absolute clearcut cuteness…?  Let’s see:

1 – Very smart sweet cute senior

1- Awesome Family

1- Perfect Day for shooting

Several – Undefinable intangibles that just make everything seem to work

Meet ahead of time, mix all ingredients together and serve!

Yep – the recipe worked.  We definitely closed in on absolute clearcut cuteness with Chloe.

What was kind of fun was the parent trade off that happened!  Chloe’s mom JJ and her dad Adam had just slightly overlapping schedules and so JJ was with us for some of the day and she “handed off” to Adam to hang out with us for the end of the session!

Absolute Clearcut Cuteness

So we started with a little bit of studio work which yielded this photo on the white background:

Absolute Clearcut Cuteness

We love that one – just cool confident and chill!

At this point we headed out to Birmingham for location photos and we started at Quarton Lake where we got this stunning close up:

Absolute Clearcut Cuteness

Wow!

We also have some fun behind the scenes for you starting with the replay of our YouTube Live broadcast – be sure to subscribe to our channel to tune in to future broadcasts!

We also headed into downtown Birmingham to get some city photos like this one – this photo is one that has one of those undefinable intangibles that we mentioned in the recipe above.  We had no idea that the shadow of me holding “Reflecto” our reflector would form a big heart until we saw the result!

Absolute Clearcut Cuteness

So fun!

And we also have more behind the scenes fun here from the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

 

And one more photo to share from the top of one of the parking structures – cool shot here…

Absolute Clearcut Cuteness

Absolute clearcut cuteness indeed!

And there you have it – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with Chloe!!!

Up And At ‘Em For Some Laker Pride And Senior Photos With Jared!

When we say we were up and at ’em for some Laker Pride with Jared we aren’t kidding!  The first photo you’ll see in these sneak peeks is one you would assume was a night time shot, but it was actually a morning shot before sunrise!  The schedule just worked out that way so we said let’s go for it, and you know what?  There’s something to be said for that “early to bed early to rise” thing…  ha!  Meanwhile Jared is a cool dude and his dad Phil joined us who was very helpful having dabbled in some photography himself.  Needless to say, it was a memorable morning and the proof is in the portraits.

Laker Pride with Jared…

So for the first shot we headed back to the West Bloomfield High School SWAMP (that’s the nickname for their football stadium) where we’ve photographed a couple of Jared’s teammates this year to get what has become somewhat of a signature football shot of ours – another winner – Jared looks the part for sure!

Laker Pride

Looking good – Laker Pride indeed…

Once we got the photos we needed at the Swamp we headed over to Birmingham to take a few city photos and we have a little behind the scenes fun for you starting with the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

Here are two of the resulting photos from this segment of the morning:

Laker Pride

Big fans of that one…  and one more:

Laker Pride

Nice!

At this point we brought it back home to the studio to finish up and here is the behind the scenes as Jared donned his letter jacket and showed off a little versatility with a multi-sport approach, and maybe our first shot put photo (?)….

And here is the result!

Laker Pride

Awesome stuff.  We had one heck of a morning with this guy and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with him!

Twin Seniors Part 2! This Time It’s Shoshie Fo Sho!

As promised we present Part 2 of yesterday’s Twin Senior highlights!!!  Yesterday the focus was on Hallie, and today it’s Shoshie FO SHO!!!  Haha!  Loving the results from the day we spent with these two and their mom Caryn – we laughed a lot that day and the girls were rock stars!

Shoshie Fo Sho!

The focus for both girls was the summer style portraits on location in a natural setting so today will be more of the same awesomeness, and we’ll start with this one on the edge of the Quarton Lake dock in Birmingham:

Shoshie Fo Sho

She looks great!  A little backlight and great conditions that day too!

The next pose shows a playful side of Shoshie – much fun!

Shoshie Fo Sho

Love it!

We also have the behind the scenes live stream from Facebook for you – the YouTube Live broadcast is in Hallie’s post.

With twins we have plenty of time to roam around and hit different spots and here’s one of Shoshie in the stream…Shoshie Fo Sho

Love her reflection in the water too!

One more of Shoshie close up….

Shoshie Fo Sho

So pretty – and one of the girls together in the water….!
