With another entry in the surreal moments category we present to you our last and FAR from least spokesmodel for the rising Class of 2021 seniors – JuJu!!! Giulianna was last here with her siblings in December of 2010! Here’s a photo from that session from a studio sample book we still have!
She was so adorable! And now she’s back a full decade later as a beautiful and kind senior! Wow… time sure flies and it’s so special for us to have the people who were with us in the early days of the studio here at the Orchard Mall back to represent us for senior pictures! We’ve always been admirers of JuJu’s mom Barb – she is just good. Such a sweetheart. So when they agreed to spokesmodeling for us we were over the moon. We knew JuJu would bring the juju! The GOOD kind!!!
JuJu brings the juju…to Detroit!
We were also excited to get back down to Detroit for some photos. We hadn’t been down there for a session since before the stay at home orders and we love being there. Detroit sessions have been really popular the last several years (there’s a slight additional charge of $75 for the time and travel required for a Detroit session).
We started on Belle Isle and even though the fountain wasn’t on we thought it made for a nice backdrop!
LOVE! We had a perfect day too…
Here’s another on Belle Isle:
At this point we headed over to Eastern Market and we have some fun behind the scenes for you here from Facebook!
And the result:
The next photo was a first for us at Scott Sprague’s studio in Detroit which we have access to as an option going forward for a fee – it’s unique, spacious and has some fantastic lighting! Scott was really nice and invited us up to play around a little so we took him up on it. Here are a couple from his studio:
You can see in the TikTok above the natural lighting that comes through the windows that we used for this next one we’ll leave you with:
And there you have it – JuJu with the good juju! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her and all the photos of our wonderful class of 2021 spokesmodel crew! So excited to photograph this rising senior class!

Mad about Maddie is what we are! We actually have been at least since her spokesmodel session back in April and so we were excited to get her in front of Ally’s camera again for her senior pictures! We had great weather and we focused mainly on location for this day so we headed out with Maddie and her mom Lisa to make it happen!
Mad About Maddie
First we went to a private beach that they had access to:
Okay she’s adorable.
From there we headed to a fave dock of ours for a few and we have some fun behind the scenes on this from Facebook Live!
…and one of the results!
Love it. And we’ll also give a shout out to Francie Fruitman on the fantastic makeup!
We bounced around West Bloomfield a little where we got this image with Maddie surrounded by natural beauty!
Oh, and Maddie LOVES bumblebees…. ok not really. Haha! Some more behind the scenes on that…. from Instagram LIVE:
We’ll leave you with one more of Maddie just being super cute.
And there you have it – we’re mad about Maddie – again! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

We are so thrilled with Paige – we totally connected on her senior spokesmodel session and she is just one of our peeps. That’s it. She just is – she totally fits in and we feel like we’ve known her forever. Her mom Maxine? Same way. We just had so much fun, and so Paige is definitely FRONT PAIGE NEWS for our studio as far as we’re concerned and she is representing Frankel Jewish Academy for the senior class of 2019!
Front Paige News
It’s always funny with the spokesmodel sessions when Ally says to me beforehand “okay I don’t want to go too crazy today” because we don’t need a ton of photos for these sessions in order to get some images out into the scene for the upcoming senior class, and yet that’s often what happens. Very often we just fall in love with our spokesmodel crew and Ally can’t help herself – this session with Paige was a marathon and we probably would have been happy to go longer! We started in the studio so we could get a few photos on our red paper and the silver metal setups. First the red with the full length:
Next we brought out the silver metal… and we started a Facebook Livestream with Facebook Creator for some behind the scenes fun! Click on it and check it out!
And here is one of the results…
At this point we headed outdoors to get a few photos on location and first we returned to an old graffiti wall we haven’t been to in quite some time… this yielded a real winner! LOVE this one:
We made one more stop over by the West Bloomfield Library for a few and we did a little Instagram livestream for some more behind the scenes fun – take a look from our YouTube channel!
And we’ll leave you with this last one outside…
Beautiful with the backlight and the off camera flash! Definitely front PAIGE news indeed, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our awesome day with her!
