Here we are – Class of 2023!!! And we rolled right into the senior sessions on a perfect day in the B’ham with Rachel and her delightful mom Erin at Quarton Lake. Even Chewy the wookie – okay the pup – joined on location to protect us lol… So let’s get to the highlights! We’re so excited for the new season!
Rolling With Rachel
We actually started in the studio for the yearbook pic and a little “black and blowy”…
Let’s also give a shoutout to Mandy Rose Studio for Rachel’s hair and makeup, and we have some behind the scenes here first on Instagram:
Jordan is a jewel indeed and she’s a legacy senior here – her brother Justin was here for senior portraits about 5 years ago so we were pretty excited to be hanging with Jordan and her family – we love them! They actually jumped in for a little family add-on that we just might share at some point but for this post we’re focusing on this future Golden Grizzly and actor… So let’s get to some highlights!
Jordan is a Jewel
After a few family pics in the studio we headed downtown with Jordan and her wonderful mom Christin. We’ll start with a couple from the Fisher Building:
Gorgeous! And let’s also give a shout out to Yasmeen at Mandy Rose Studio for the makeup!
We also have some fun behind the scenes first from Facebook:
And here’s one more from the Fisher:
LOVING the black and white!
At this point we headed over to Belle Isle where we captured Jordan with the skyline in the distance…
And one more stop that we’ll share one from at Eastern Market – first the behind the scenes from Instagram:
Violet came to the studio with their mom Polly and we didn’t know what we were in for – Violet had very strong ideas about what they envisioned for their senior pictures – a goth approach to the makeup and a very specific look. So when Violet showed up the day of the session we were stunned at how cool their look actually was, and much credit goes to Yasmine at Mandy Rose for the makeup – as a matter of fact she posted a little video of Violet’s face before they left to come to the studio…
Satisfyingly Stupendous? Yep. Samantha’s senior session was a winner and when the Franklin Cider Mill is involved it’s a scrumptious one too! We had a lot of fun on this one – Samantha’s whole fam joined and everyone had a good time! As for Samantha herself we’re fans. She’s adorable, smart, fun, nice – all the things. So let’s get to a few highlights shall we?
Satisfyingly Stupendous with Samantha
We started in the studio for a few pics first:
Love that in black and white…
Next we headed to the Cider Mill (the best one in town) for a few cool spots like this one, and we also want to give a shoutout to Yasmine at Mandy Rose for Samantha’s makeup:
We also have some fun behind the scenes first from Facebook:
We headed down the street at this point for a few other spots like this gazebo:
We played around with some smoke too – here’s the Instagram video:
The official senior sessions of the class of 2022 have begun and we are quite excited to be jumping into it with Jordyn! We’ve known Jordyn and her fam for many years and she is awesome. Adorable and sharp as a knife – we could hang out with her and her mom Jodi all day, and that’s what we did! We also LUCKED OUT because the weather was perfect during our session, followed by a deluge that even flooded much of the mall that evening (everything’s fine and the water didn’t make it to our door) so this sesh was meant to be!
Let’s get to the highlights…
Jumping Into the Class of 2022 with Jordyn
Let’s also give a shout out to Mandy Rose Studio for Jordyn’s makeup (done by Yasmine) which looked fantastic. We started out at Belle Isle and actually spent the majority of our time there…
One more from this spot up close!
We even have some fun behind the scenes from the day with a “Jodi Takeover” – it’s been a bit since we had a mom do that – may have to bring more of those back! Ha!
One more from the island…
How adorable is she? At this point we headed over to Eastern Market to get a couple with some murals – this could be our fave of those:
Pretty in pink!
We’ll also leave you with a little more behind the scenes with a TikTok recap!
Ellie elevates her game in the following photographs – like, they’re awesome, and SHE’S awesome. We love this girl who has represented our studio as a spokesmodel this year at North Farmington High School (our beloved alma mater) for the class of 2021! We’ve known this fam for decades and we’ve loved photographing Ellie – she’s full of personality, smart, adorable and she’s just fun. Both of her parents Jeff and Kari joined us at Mill Race Historical Village in Northville on a beautiful Fall afternoon and the results are awesome. Let’s get to a few of them shall we?
Mill Race is one of our new favorite places to photograph since we got the permit to shoot there this year and Ellie brought her A-Game. A shout out also goes to Caroline at Mandy Rose Studio for makeup!
Okay she looks gorgeous. And part of the point was the Fall colors for the Pure Michigan feel which we got plenty of, but purples and pinks look fantastic in that one! We have some behind the scenes fun too first from Facebook:
Here’s a couple more from the village:
A beautiful flower in the flowers!
Now we get into the Fall feels….
Love it. We also have some more behind the scenes this time from Instagram:
Sammy is a ray of sunshine – so much personality and a real delight to photograph, and what’s more is the very cool connection I (Doug) have with her family! They bought the house I grew up in from my parents years ago! They don’t live there anymore but we shared the same “view of the world” literally for a time and that will always connect us. Sammy’s parents Jen & Bert are great and they even joined for part of the session with the family pups! Sammy is a Bloomfield Hills Blackhawk just like our kids were so that’s even another reason to like her! Hehe… so enough gushing – let’s let the pics do the talking!
Summer In The Sun With Sammy!
We actually started in the studio with Sammy and the fam….and the fan! Let’s highlight one of the black and blowy pics first:
We also have some fun behind the scenes action first from Facebook:
At this point it was time to head out on location to Birmingham for that summer in the sun fun we talked about…
Just gorgeous! And we have behind the scenes from this photo too – this time from Instagram:
Being captivated by Clare is a great shot in the arm – spending time with this girl and her delightful mom Nicole on a perfect day taking pictures is just the ticket and we loved it – the results speak for themselves! Clare is a rising senior at Mercy High School and an athlete to boot. We went to Birmingham for these photos and we are so happy to present these highlights!
Captivated By Clare!
Let’s get to some highlights at Quarton Lake!
LOVE!!! Let’s also give a shout out to Caroline at Mandy Rose Studio for the awesome job on Clare’s makeup!
We also have some fun behind the scenes from the day first from Facebook:
Here’s another one from Quarton Lake – Clare is stunning in red!
At this point we headed into downtown and Clare broke out the varsity letter jacket!
Love the ripped jeans and cool kicks…
Here’s the behind the scenes this time from Instagram:
Adrianna has been a part of the Frameable Faces studio since it opened in the Orchard Mall over 11 years ago! You may recognize her as the adorable little girl in the big frame by our theater in the back of the studio…
…and now she’s a beautiful young lady and the first of our class of 2021 senior spokesmodels! She even gave us a little side by side in the Facebook livestream you’ll see below which was so much fun! So this is an exciting moment for us to kickoff the new class and a surreal one for us since it’s Adrianna! She’s a West Bloomfield Laker and we’re so happy to have her back! We did a little reminiscing with her mom Lillian when we sat down to plan, and she had a fantastic spokesmodel session! These give us a chance to try out some new lighting techniques (as well as backdrops and locations as we move through the rest of our crew over the next few months) and Ally is still playing with her new camera. Plus we use these images in all of our upcoming marketing for the next senior class which will be coming through the studio in just 4 short months from now!
Adrianna Leads The Way
So let’s get to it:
We started out on the white paper backdrop and sometimes the white on white looks very cool – especially with the ripped jeans!
Adrianna was on her game!!!
Next we moved to the black backdrop and here we went black on black. People sometimes are surprised when we tell them they can wear the white on the white or the black on the black assuming they’ll blend in, but if your lighting is great it looks fantastic. We also want to give a shoutout to Caroline at Mandy Rose Studio for Adrianna’s makeup! They do an awesome job over there.
We also have our first behind the scenes clip here from Facebook Live and this is the one where Adrianna gives us the “double take flashback”! So much fun…
Next we moved to the fire red fabric backdrop which we love:
We have a little more behind the scenes fun here this time from Instagram Live:
We’ll leave you with one more on the red:
Wow – we’d say we’re off to an amazing start with Adrianna leading the way. More to come with the rest of the crew so keep on the lookout, and make sure you are subscribed to our newsletter and podcast! All the links are below! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with Adrianna!

We got marvelous with Marlee because she IS. She’s a legacy twice over here at Frameable Faces with both of her big bros coming here for their senior pics and we are big fans of the fam! Meanwhile Marlee is adorable, smart and snarky so she fits in pretty well here! Marlee’s mom Gayle joined us for a fine day here at the studio and on location in the WB for some, well, MAHHHVELOUS pics with Marlee!!!
Marlee Is Marvelous
We started on location for this one with Orchard Lake in the background…
Also you know how we roll – here’s the fun behind the scenes from the above photo from Facebook LIVE:
We hit a couple more spots around town including this meadow, and while we’re at it we need to shout out Farah at Mandy Rose Studio for hair and makeup – she did a great job with Marlee!
And one more outside, and you can see a little of that Fall color coming in as we get up close with our girl…
At this point we headed back to the studio for a little glam on the black, and we have some more behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram:
And the MARVELOUS result:
A stunner to finish with!
We were getting marvelous with Marlee indeed – the end of an era with these guys and maybe they saved the best for last (?). LOL – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!
