A-lovin’ Havin’ Alivia Represent Frameable Faces As A Spokesmodel!

Ahhh Spring is finally (kinda) in the air here in Michigan and we were able to get outside for a class of 2020 spokesmodel session!  Couldn’t be more pleased to do that with Alivia who is adorable, an athlete, and a Bloomfield Hills Blackhawk!!!  We’ve gotten to know some of this fam over the last couple years at BHHS as our son Tony has been a football teammate of both of her brothers, and her parents are great – her mom Rhonda joined us on the session and she is a delight.  We did a little bit in the studio as well as on location for this session so let’s get to a few highlights shall we?

A’Lovin’ Alivia

 We started out in the studio on the black background to get some blowy 🌬 and some fiery 🔥 and well, wow.  Alivia just crushed it.  Here’s the setup with the fun behind the scenes livestream on Facebook Live – click on this and get a little chuckle… and be sure to give our page a “like”!

Here’s the awesome fiery result:

Alivia

Okay that is bad ass.

At this point we headed on location and this is quite typical of our seniors where we’ll spend some time on a session in the studio AND on location – both options are included in our session fee at no additional charge with the exception of longer distances such as Detroit or Ann Arbor (also very popular).

As for Alivia, we love this closeup of her – a natural beauty!

Alivia

Whoa!  Beautiful.

Alivia changed outfits too – how about some pretty in pink?

Alivia

 

We also have some fun behind the scenes from our livestream on Instagram which you can click and see below – Alivia is just such a natural on camera!

 

And we’ll leave you with this one with the brick.  Sometimes the breeze gives you a perfect lift!

Alivia

And there you have it!  A’lovin’ Alivia indeed – we are thrilled to have her as part of our crew!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Katie Krushed Her Spokesmodel Studio Session for the Class of 2020!

Katie Krushed it!  Yes she indeedy did, and we were so excited to have her here – we’ve known Katie as we said during the livestream since she was “pre-Katie”!!!  In the womb LOL….  Katie’s parents Kelly and Tim are dear friends of ours so the surrealness continues and this time was a pretty cool first because Katie is leading the way as our very first Clarkston Wolf spokesmodel!  The weather hadn’t quite warmed up yet and we still had a new studio backdrop to play with so we stayed indoors for this one.  Let’s get to the highlights:

Katie Krushed It

We started out on the grey fabric which we’ve actually had for a while but it seems to have been a while since we’ve used it so…

Katie Krushed

Love the fun full length with the ripped jeans!

We also have some fun behind the scenes action first from the Instagram Live broadcast as we went with the new green polka dot backdrop which we really like!

And here is the result:

Katie Krushed

Gorgeous!!!  And just love the colors.

Next we broke out the red Victorian couch and the damask backdrop to go with a dress that actually kind of matched and it looks so cool!

Katie Krushed

Here’s more behind the scenes from this setup this time from the Facebook Live broadcast!

The last one we’ll leave you with is the black with just a little blowy… one of our classic moves:

Katie Krushed

Love the color and those eyes on that girl!

And there you have it – Katie Krushed it indeed and we hope you liked the highlights – an awesome first for the Clarkston Wolves!

Senior Spokesmodeling With Sedona to Kickoff The Class of 2020!

It’s that time of year when we start photographing our new spokesmodel crew and it’s weird to say that the Class of 2020 is on its way!  Wow…  This is always a fun time for us because this is our team that we assemble each year to represent our studio and what better way to start it off than with Sedona whom we’ve known pretty much her whole life and some new backdrops in the studio!

Sedona Kicks of the 2020 Spokesmodels…

This isn’t Sedona’s first time on this blog either – we (our event photographer Angela) photographed her bat mitzvah a few years back and man does time fly.  She did a fantastic job on this session and she’ll be representing us at Walled Lake Northern High School.  So let’s get to the photos shall we?

2020

This is the first of three backdrops we used for the first time on this day and we love the olive earth tones here with the burnt orange top – Sedona looks awesome!

We also have some behind the scenes fun too – we like for you to see how these go and catch the vibe if you will – we have fun here!  If you’re not having a little fun then what’s the point right?  First we have the Instagram Live replay…

Now let’s take a look at a couple more backdrops and outfits!

2020

So cute!  Ripped jeans, barn door – got a little of that rustic country feel going!  Love the way that looks.

2020

That white-washed wood is another new one and Sedona was slaying the game at this point!

Let’s get in one more behind the scenes vid for a little more fun this time from our Facebook Live:

We’ll leave you with this one on our black backdrop:

2020

Just a nice simple pose to finish it off – Sedona is a rockstar!  And there you have it!  Look for more spokesmodels coming your way over the next couple of months – we are so excited for the 2020 crew!

The Highlights Of Ian’s Senior Session Tell A Story Indeed!

Telling a good story is important.  It makes life fun and interesting!  You might say we tell stories here through our photos and Ally is quite talented at doing so.  That was certainly the case when Ian visited the studio and we weren’t surprised since we’ve known this kid for many years.  He’s a funny dude and the whole family is great – they are friends of ours and we’ve photographed all of them before at one time or another.  The thing is, on this day we took the whole storytelling notion a step further.  Ian’s spirit animal got involved and we kicked it up a notch.  Ian’s senior session tells a story indeed!  But more on that later….  For now we’ll just start with a few photos:

Ian’s Session Tells A Story Indeed…

This was an all-studio session which is typically nice and chill.  Let’s get a look at our guy…

Story Indeed

Looking good!  Ally loves when guys are in a pink tone…

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

Here’s another one this time in black and white:

Story Indeed

Ally got him – looks like he’s got a giggle coming on…

Here’s a cool one on the black backdrop…

Story Indeed

And now here is where the story really takes a turn…. hehe.

We have a big stuffed Garfield here at the studio – we’re not even really sure why, but Ian’s mom Emma spotted it and said she thinks Garfield is Ian’s “spirit animal” so we all decided that Garfield should be in on the action.  As a matter of fact we pulled up a settee for Garfield to sit on while Ian read a very inappropriate comic book created by the man responsible for the Doug & Ally Morning Show logo – the Artful Doodler himself from the U.K. – Rich Nairn!  Ian read Dr. Ripper’s Sinister Shipmates to Garfield in a setting with story time piano music and, well…. you just have to see it for yourself.  Here is the replay from our Periscope broadcast…  LOL!

If you have trouble with that link here’s another:  https://www.pscp.tv/FrameableFaces/1dRKZOLPwbVGB

And here is the memorable result:

Story Indeed

A wonderful story indeed!

And there you have it!  A fun time was had by all and we got some fantastic photos out of it too!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights!

Our Own Senior Tony Takes on the Big Apple and The Brooklyn Bridge!

Time to share some photos from our very own senior who makes us so proud! It’s Tony Time! We’re actually not even done with Tony yet – as with Lacey we’re kinda taking advantage of being the photographers for our own kids senior pics.  We’ve already done a spokesmodel session with him and there will probably be one more session for Tony.  But in the meantime we decided that New York City could be a cool location for Tony’s session, and more specifically the Brooklyn Bridge! We’d never actually walked across it before so we thought we would give it a shot. It was certainly a little tricky – lots of people to navigate but we got it done. We also hit a couple spots in Westchester County on the Hudson River and in a forest. We’re pretty pumped to share these so let’s get to it:

Tony On The Brooklyn Bridge!

We actually parked in Brooklyn so we could photograph towards Manhattan and it was a little busy and a little chilly but our lighting was great (a great sundown orange sky and off camera flash) and we got some great photos!

Brooklyn Bridge

Looking good with Lady Liberty against the orange sky…

We also have plenty of fun behind the scenes and you’ll see how hectic it was for us!  First from Facebook:

Here’s a cool one where you really get a nice view of the bridge with our guy:

Brooklyn Bridge

Here’s some more behind the scenes from the Instagram broadcast…

We were staying with friends in Westchester County on this trip and the next day we headed up to a couple scenic spots in the woods and on the Hudson River.  First at Dobbs Ferry…

Brooklyn Bridge

We also have a few Snapchat highlights where you can get a sense of the scenic spot on the Hudson River!

We’ll leave you with one more close up in another natural setting:

Brooklyn BridgeSo there you have it!  A very cool experience for us to be able to get these awesome shots of our own in New York!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time in the Big Apple!

Calling Audibles With Andrew For Awesome Senior Picture Results!

Andrew knows how to call audibles – he was the quarterback at Bloomfield Hills High School and a teammate of our Tony, and we watched him grow and develop into a fine player through hard work.  He’s a great kid, and an audible if you didn’t know is basically the decision to adapt and change your plan depending on the circumstances – such as what the defense is presenting before the play during a game, or the weather and timing on a photo session perhaps.  In our case we improvised for some textures instead of going into a city setting and we were able to get into the locker room at BHHS for a couple cool photos and to warm up since it was freezing outside.  BUT we still got the nighttime bleacher photo that we wanted so it all worked out to be a winning session!
 

Audibles With Andrew

 

Let’s start in the studio with a dapper formal picture:

Audible

Stylin’!

We also have some behind the scenes – first with Instagram Live from the studio in uniform:

We switched up from formal to uniform and back again for both in studio and on location – audibles remember?  Let’s head over to the school at this point but first with another stylish up close pic before we get into game gear!

Audible
Looking great!
 
At this point we headed into the locker room and we’ve got more behind the scenes from Facebook Live this time:
 

…and the result:
Audible
Andrew totally looks ready to go out and do battle….and we’ll stay with the football look for one of our faves to do – we’ve only done this a few times ever and each time it’s killer…
 
Audible
 
And there you have it!  We enjoyed watching Andrew on the field this past season with the rest of the Blackhawks – they all made us proud, and we had a great time creating these images and calling audibles with Andrew!  We hoped you enjoyed the highlights!

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!

Chase Charmed Us On A Chilly Day For Senior Pictures – A Real Champ!

Chase charmed us alright – we really like this guy.  Just a nice dude and really personable, and we have to give him credit because his day for his senior session was a cold one – it ain’t easy being outside with no coat and smiling through it for photos!  Chase’s mom Courtney came along and eventually the entire extended fam showed up for a few family portraits on location while we were at it!  This blog post however is about our guy Chase so let’s get to the highlights from Birmingham!

Chase Charmed

We set up at Quarton Lake which is where we got all of our images and Chase had a few outfits ready to roll.  The man has style.  He started out in a suit:

Chase Charmed

Chase is the man.

Here we have some behind the scenes fun from the day from Facebook Live!

Quick outfit change and we bounced over to the dock for this relaxed pose…

Chase Charmed

Next we went with a half length and made sure to have that belt buckle in the shot!!! 

Chase Charmed

We have more behind the scenes fun this time from the Instagram replay:

And we’ll leave you with this closeup – Chase still getting it done – like a champ!

Chase Charmed

And there you have it!  Chase charmed us indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!

Anika Serves Up An Ace Of A Senior Session – Wow!

We love our seniors as you know, and we’re always really impressed with seniors who take the initiative to call the studio themselves and set up their own session!  This is not a knock on the seniors whose parents make the call, but we love when we can hear the confidence and eloquence of a young person who can handle themselves so well right off the bat!  This was the case with Anika, and that first impression was just the tip of the iceberg.  She is such a sweetheart!  Anika is also the number 1 ranked tennis player in the state of Michigan and is leaving this month to embark on her journey to play tennis at the University of North Carolina!  Doug’s Godfather played football at UNC back in the 50’s so we’ve always had a slight affinity for the Carolina Blue and White and now we’ll have a personal connection there with someone whose career we are excited to follow!

Anika Serves Up An Ace

As for her senior session it was one to remember – both her parents Pat and Sushma joined us for her day and they are both delightful – we had a lot of fun – and the photos?  Just awesome – an ACE of a session for sure and you could say we “LOVE” this girl – see what we did there?  Let’s get to the highlights!

We’ll start in the studio on the black…

Ace

Beautiful!

We played around with the white background too – so many options and it has been hard to narrow these down for this blog post…  In the meantime we have some fun behind the scenes first from the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast in the studio:

At this point we headed out to the tennis courts for some location photos and we had some really cool Michigan fall colors in the background for a tennis setting which was pretty neat as Anika donned some UNC gear:

Ace

Servin’ and slayin’….

We also have some behind the scenes fun from the tennis court at West Bloomfield High School from our Instagram livestream – take a look:

From there we headed over to Birmingham and these next two are both closeups but they’re just too good – so instead of choosing we’re leaving you with these two… one on the dock at Quarton Lake:

Ace

And one with a change of wardrobe and a natural background – awesome!!!

Ace

Anika served up an ACE of a session indeed, she’s got the ADVANTAGE for life, and we LOVE her for sure!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with her!

Ben Is A Baller – On The Pitch, In The City and On His Senior Session!

Yes Ben plays soccer and he’s a baller – but we think that applies to more than just how he plays on the pitch.  We’ve known Ben and his family for a long time and he’s a good dude – you could say being a baller is just an overall description of this guy.  Good kid, involved in the community, athlete, student – he’s got it all, and we had a lot of fun with him and his mom Leigh on his senior session!

Ben Is A Baller

We started on location and headed over to Bloomfield Hills High School first to get a few photos of Ben in his gear – this is a great one!

Baller

Bad ass…

As usual we have some fun behind the scenes from the day starting with the replay of our broadcast on Facebook Live:

Time now for a change in location over to downtown Birmingham first with this cool close up:

Baller

And how about this one with the city lights and the Birmingham Theater marquee!

Baller

At this point we headed back to the studio to finish up once we ran out of daylight and we’ll leave you with this portrait of our guy:

Baller

Awesome!  We also have the behind the scenes Snapchat story for you – the filters are missing for some weird reason but it’s still plenty fun!


 

And there you have it – Ben is a baller and he delivered on an awesome senior session!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!
