Making Senior Picture Magic With Micole in Detroit!

Yes we made magic with Micole in Detroit – senior picture magic!  Micole is a rising senior in the class of 2021 at Bloomfield Hills High School, and we LOVE our Blackhawks since our own kids were Blackhawks!  Part of what made this session special was that Micole’s whole fam joined us – parents Sarah and Todd and little brother Ari – and it was pretty cool to have everyone there to join in and celebrate this girl.  She’s smart and adorable and we really enjoyed spending the day with her!  So let’s get to some highlights!

Magic With Micole!

We actually started with a few pics in the studio so let’s highlight one of those first:

Magic With Micole

Love the ripped denim and the tie dye!  We also have some fun behind the scenes from the day first from Instagram Live:

At this point it was time to head downtown and we had a great day for it!  We hit Belle Isle first…

Magic With Micole

Gotta love when the fountain is on!

Here’s a closeup on one of our favorite bridges there:

Okay she is stunning…

After hanging on the island for a while we finished up over by Eastern Market, and we have a little more behind the scenes fun this time from Facebook:

….and the result!

Magic With Micole

 Magic with Micole indeed!  And there you have it!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Ellie Elicits Extreme Enjoyment on Her Spokesmodel Session!

We had a wonderful time – extreme enjoyment you might say a few weeks ago with Ellie for her spokesmodel session for the class of 2021!  We are pleased to share these highlights during times of stress as we continue to prepare for the upcoming senior class, and Ellie is representing our studio for North Farmington High School – our alma mater! 
 
Meanwhile we go way back with Ellie’s family – Doug went to Michigan with Ellie’s mom Kari and she joined us for the session which we did mostly in the studio, but we did manage to get outside for a bit even though it was just slightly chilly…  hehe.  So let’s get to some highlights!
 

Extreme Enjoyment With Ellie

 
You’ll see for yourself how delightful Ellie is in the behind the scenes stuff, and we’ll get to the photo highlights in a bit, but first we have an added element to this session that we are playing with to start offering this summer…
 
Susan Adams is a fantastic local photographer whom we have admired for a few years now.  She specializes in sports and she has captured some great images of our son Tony as the photographer for Bloomfield Hills Schools.  We are looking to bring Susan and her talents on board for yes – sports (more on that in the future), but also for an idea we had for professional behind-the-scenes storytelling through photos of the day with our seniors!  As you know Doug documents plenty of behind the scenes fun during our sessions with livestreaming and more on Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and TikTok with his iPhone.  But senior photos are really an event for our peeps and this could be a great option for those who want to include it in their experience.  With Ellie, Susan met up with her while she was having her makeup done by Class of 2011 Frameable Faces Senior Gabby Zilberberg!  We love when things like this happen!  She also came over to the studio to grab a few photos as well, so we’ll start with Susan’s pics:
 

Getting started…

Great stuff right? 

Now let’s get to the sneak peeks from the session!

We started off with a little pink on pink.  Love this sweater on this background – just adorable!
 
Extreme Enjoyment
And here is some fun behind the scenes from Facebook – should bring you a smile or two!
 

From there we moved to a wooden backdrop that we love:
 
Extreme Enjoyment
Love that with the cute denim – perfect combo.
 
Next we got into our go-to black fabric…
 
Extreme Enjoyment
Gorgeous – her hair is awesome.
 
Oh and here’s a little TikTok silliness…
 
@frameablefacesBehind the scenes ##seniorpictures ##classof2021 ##metrodetroit @d1ellie Photographer, Director, SPOKESMODEL! Everybody Vogue! 😛♬ Vogue – Madonna

At this point it was time to get a few pics outdoors.  And actually it was toasty warm!  Okay maybe not, but we told Ellie to pretend it was…  hehe…
 
Here’s some behind the scenes from outside that we streamed on Instagram:
 

And we’ll leave you with this one photo from on location.  So pretty!!!
 
Extreme Enjoyment
And there you have it!  Extreme enjoyment with Ellie indeed!  We are looking forward to bringing you more photos of these awesome young peeps and we look towards the summer for senior pictures!
 
Meanwhile, looking for some fun?  A diversion?  Check out our podcast – all the links are below and we actually talked about Ellie’s session a bit on episode 8!

Jessica Justifies Admiration With Sib4Sib and Senior Pictures!

Jessica justifies admiration for sure – we’ve been aware of Jessica for a quite a while, highlighting her group Sib4Sib on our newsletter a while back.  Now in doing her senior pictures we’ve gotten to know her more, and she’s a really special kid with a mission.  Sib4Sib is described this way in the about section at Sib4Sib.org:

  • Sib4Sib was founded in November, 2016 by a teen named Jessica Goldberg.  Jessica’s brother struggles with mental health.  For over ten years, she had dealt with the anger, frustration, and resentment that accompanies living with someone who struggles with mental health.  After searching for an outlet for her frustrations to no avail, Jessica decided to take matters into her own hands.  As a teen, Jessica made it a point to create a group that would make other teens feel safe and comfortable to share their stories. 

Wow right?  This girl is making a difference in the world.  Meanwhile she is a North Farmington Raider like us, and she is a lot of fun – she had an epic take on Mona Lisa for her student ID which cracked us up and we were looking forward to her senior session, so let’s get to a few highlights!

Jessica Justifies Admiration…

A shout out here goes to Lisa North for Jessica’s makeup – Jessica brought her to the studio early to do the makeup here and so we made another connection – Lisa is a sweetheart and did a fantastic job on Jessica!

Let’s start in the studio with the black and blowy setup:

Jessica Justifies

Stunning!

We also have a little behind the scenes with Jessica talking about Sib4Sib a little bit from Facebook – take a look:

At this point we headed out on location to Birmingham and here are a few highlights:

Jessica Justifies

Adorable.

Jessica Justifies

….and we’ll leave you with this last one up close and personal!

Jessica Justifies

Love it!!! 

You can get an idea of why Jessica justifies admiration indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

A Livin’ The Dream With Alivia On An Awesome Senior Session!

Having opportunities to repeatedly photograph our faves makes for great days “on the job” so to speak.  It certainly doesn’t feel like work when you’ve got a sweetheart like Alivia back for another round with her delightful mom Rhonda!  Alivia is a spokesmodel for the class of 2020 representing Bloomfield Hills High School and her spokesmodel session rocked back in April, so we were excited for her senior session!
 

A Livin’ The Dream With Alivia…

We focused most of our energy on location starting with a lake backdrop…
 
A Livin
Gorgeous!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes action first from the livestream we did on Instagram!
 

And one of the results…

A Livin

At this point we did a little relocation for a few more scenes and the awesomeness continued – Alivia killed it!

A Livin
Here’s another behind the scenes vid this time from Facebook LIVE:
 

And we’ll leave you with one more with a little off camera flash – love this one…
 
A Livin
Fantastic.
 
And there you have it – you can see that we were a livin’ the dream on this day with Alivia and we hope you enjoyed the highlights from her session!

Izzy Is In The Hizzy With A Detroit Takeover Senior Session!

Izabela – aka Izzy to her friends – is in the hizzy, and on our blog!!!  What an adorable young lady, but we’re not surprised since we kinda watched her grow up and her parents are great people.  But this summer has been the first time we’ve really had the chance to hang out with her and we’ve loved every minute of it!  Her mom Nadica joined us for a wonderful day in Detroit – we laughed a lot and got some incredible photos, so let’s get to the highlights!
 

Izzy In The Hizzy

 
It was an afternoon session so we started first in the Eastern Market area, figuring our lighting for the Belle Isle photos would be better as the sun got a little lower in the sky for what we wanted.  We went to one of our favorite walls first:
 
Izzy
Okay how cute is she???  We also have some fun behind the scenes for you first from Facebook Live:
 

Next we hit up a spot that we’ve never used before – these painted cement barrel type things…. lol!  We LOVE this one:

Izzy

So cool!!!

In staying with the color texture theme we have this next one, where there is something about the wind blown look that we think is really appealing.  Just a moment captured where Izzy looks so beautiful.

Izzy

At this point we headed to Belle Isle and listen, these were really hard to choose to share for this post… We actually went to the graffiti bridge for some fun and we livestreamed there, but we’ve posted photos on the blog from there before and the last photo we’ll share is undeniable with the purple dress and purple flowers…  First the Instagram LIVE at the bridge:

…and then the purple to leave you with:
 
Izzy
WOW.
 
Okay so there it is – you can see why we were thrilled that Izzy was in the hizzy, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Photographing Jordan Is Our Jam – Her Senior Session Shows Why!

Photographing Jordan is our jam.  We’ve gotten to do it a couple times now starting with her spokesmodel session back in April and it’s been a blast!  She’s a total sweetheart and her parents are great too – Jessica and Doug both joined us for a perfect day in Birmingham for her senior session and we have highlights for you – they weren’t easy to pick….

Photographing Jordan is our Jam

This first photo is a new spot at Quarton Lake we hadn’t used before, so this pose on this rock will henceforth be known as “The Jordan”:  

Jam

She ROCKED it.

We also have some behind the scenes fun from the day starting with the replay from Facebook Live:

Here’s one more from Quarton Lake – just a beautiful close up of Jordan!

Jam

…and one more livestream – this time it’s the replay of the Instagram LIVE:

At this point we headed over to downtown Birmingham to get a few urban looks and these are just fantastic:

Jam

Adorable – catching her in a bit of a mid-giggle!

And we’ll leave you with this one which is one of our favorite looks:

Jam

Yeah….everything about this session was just wonderful!  Awesome results.

And there you have it – photographing Jordan is our jam indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Mad About Maddie – A Fab Class Of 2020 Senior Session!

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:

Mad About Maddie

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!

Mad About Maddie

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!

Mad About Maddie

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.

Mad About Maddie

And there you have it – we’re mad about Maddie – again!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

What We Have With This Senior Session Is A Case Of Pure Kiana Nirvana!

Kiana Nirvana – it’s a state of being that you reach when you are having a blast with a certain St Johns, Michigan volleyball playing senior and her delightful mom Sonya, and we reached it!  They discovered us on Facebook when they saw a couple highlights from another volleyball player’s pics – Alivia – and they gave us a call!  St. Johns isn’t close, but Sonya actually spends some time down this way for business so they are familiar with the terrain so to speak… 

To minimize the extra trips we met over Facetime to plan out the session which was a lot of fun and we went with some studio volleyball fire and Quarton Lake for the location in Birmingham.  We were pleased to get perfect weather and the day was a memorable one!

Kiana Nirvana

We started indoors for the volleyball photos and here’s a highlight:

Kiana Nirvana

FIERCE!!!  Kiana has come a long way in her relatively short volleyball career and she is already committed to continue it at the college level at Northwood!

Here’s some fun behind the scenes action from Facebook – check it out!

At this point we headed outside to Quarton Lake in Birmingham…

Kiana Nirvana

Beautiful!!!

Kiana Nirvana

We have more behind the scenes from the location too – this time from when we went live on Instagram:

And we’ll leave you with one more image:

Kiana Nirvana

The dress, the bridge, the girl – just a gorgeous photo!

And there you have it – Kiana Nirvana indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Camryn Was In Command On Her Senior Picture Session!

Camryn was definitely in command on this very first senior session of the Class of 2020 season!  But let’s back up a sec… 

Camryn’s mom Rochelle has been my Facebook friend for a couple of years but we had never met in person!  We met through mutual connections and I did not realize her daughter was an upcoming senior at our alma mater – North Farmington!  So when she reached out to discuss senior pictures we were excited!  When you are as active as we are on Facebook sometimes you can make a connection online that becomes a connection offline!  I knew we would like Rochelle and by extension it was no shock that we liked Camryn!  Camryn is adorable and smart and nice, and she wants to be a pediatrician!  She’s got it together, and yes she was in command on her senior session!

Camryn In Command

We started in the studio and focused mainly on the red fabric backdrop and the black.  Starting with the black:

CamrynWow!  Okay she looks amazing, and now would be a good time to give a shout out to her makeup artist Tina Jones who did a fantastic job on Camryn!

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

Next we switched to the fiery red fabric backdrop for this full length photo:

Camryn

Camryn is so photogenic and so comfortable in front of the camera!  A delight for Ally to work with!

At this point it was time to head out on location.  It was brutally hot out – over 95 degrees but we were not going to be deterred!  Not to mention there were supposed to be thunderstorms but those held off as well as we were glued to the hourly forecast for the previous 24 hours and watched it shift thankfully in our favor!

We headed to Quarton Lake and got this gorgeous image:

Camryn

And of course we have a little more behind the scenes fun from the Instagram Live – the replay resides on our YouTube channel (make sure you’re subscribed)!

We’ll leave you with one more full length photo of our girl:

Camryn

What a great session!!!  Camryn was in command indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Jayden and Jaxon Are Back, Getting Big, and They Are Total Characters!

Jayden and Jaxon are total characters and they came back to the studio for some pics with their mommy Marla!  It had been a while since they had been here so we were excited to have them back and boy are they growing up! 

Total Characters!

We kept this session pretty simple with white shirts and jeans on these dudes with the white backdrop and we’ll start with a little brotherly love!

Total Characters

We also had some fun with some behind the scenes first on Facebook Live:

Now let’s give each of these guys their own turn in the spotlight:

First big brother Jayden:

Total Characters

What a big man!

Next it’s little brother Jaxon!

Total Characters

Great smile on that guy!
