Summer In The Sun With Sammy For Senior Pictures!

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:

Sammy

LOVE.

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…

Sammy

Just gorgeous!  And we have behind the scenes from this photo too – this time from Instagram:

And then there’s this one with the fabulous backlight…

Sammy

Just stunning…  Good spot here to shout out Caroline at Mandy Rose for the makeup as well!

We’ll leave you with this one:

Sammy

And there you have it!  Summer in the sun with Sammy was a session to remember and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

We Were Captivated By Clare On Her Class of 2021 Senior Session!

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!

Captivated By Clare

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!

Adrianna Leads The Way For The Senior Class of 2021 Spokesmodels!

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! 

White on White

 

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.

AdriannaWe 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:

Adrianna

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:

Adrianna

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!

Marlee Is Marvelous and So Are The Highlights From Her Senior Session!

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…

Marvelous

LOVE IT. 

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!

Marvelous

Beautiful.

And one more outside, and you can see a little of that Fall color coming in as we get up close with our girl…

Marvelous

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:

Marvelous

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!

Josie is a Josie – We’ll Explain Below With Her Senior Session Highlights!

Josie is an outgoing smiley cool chick.  She lights up a room and we were looking forward to her session, which rocked!  So sometimes when I write these I search for various stuff online for inspiration – things that match the senior or catch the vibe of the day.  In this case I started by simply Googling “Josie” – just curious what I’d find.  The first result was an (apparently bad) thriller movie that I hadn’t heard of.  BUT – the second result was PERFECT.  It was the definition of a “Josie” in the Urban Dictionary.  I didn’t know a “Josie” was a thing but check this out:
 

UrbanDictionary.com

Holy moly – Josie IS a Josie!!!!!  That is literally perfect.  Josie’s mom Gayle was out of town so she brought an entourage with her – fellow Frameable seniors Carli and Izzy and we had a blast.  We focused on location photos exclusively and we headed to Birmingham to get them…
 

Josie is a Josie…

Josie

Beautiful!!!  And a shout out here to Natalie on hair and Farah on makeup at Mandy Rose Studio for the outstanding job!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from our day first from the Facebook LIVE:

And here’s a stunning image with that outfit…

Josie

 

Love it!

One more from Quarton Lake before we headed on into downtown Birmingham, and how cool is a senior who wears a Ramones shirt to her session???

Josie

 

Hey, ho, let’s go……to downtown Birmingham…. lol!

Here’s a little more behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram:

And we’ll leave you with this one in the city….

Josie

 

So pretty!

And there you have it!  There’s no doubt Josie is indeed a Josie, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Dana Dazzles on a Dynamite Senior Picture Session!

Dana dazzles indeed in these highlights from her senior session but we’re not surprised – she’s a spokesmodel for us this year for the Walled Lake Northern Knights, we’ve known her for a couple years now and we had great fun with her for her spokesmodel session!  When we photographed her in March we were in the studio the whole time so this time we got to go on location and we had a perfect day!  Her mom Paola joined us and we LOVE Paola so it made for a great outing – a dynamite session!

Dana Dazzles…

Birmingham was the spot – Quarton Lake specifically, so let’s get to some pics:

Dana Dazzles

She’s adorable!  Let’s give a shout out to Farah at Mandy Rose Studio for the makeup and Lida at Pannos Salon for Dana’s hair too!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the day starting with Instagram LIVE:

Moving right along with an outfit change:

Dana Dazzles

Gorgeous.  Like we said this was just a dynamite session….

Dana Dazzles

Wow….

Let’s see a little more behind the scenes fun this time from Facebook:

And we’ll leave you with this last one…

Dana Dazzles

So yeah…..Dana dazzles – no doubt about that, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

We Know You Will See The Allure Of Liz’s Lovely Senior Session!

The allure of Liz’s lovely senior session is strong indeed because it’s um…..awesome!  We are big fans of this girl – she has an artist’s point of view as an aspiring photographer herself and we really enjoyed photographing her!  The only problem is that we’re a Canon shop and she shoots with a Nikon – ha – but that just proves how much we like her that we still let her into the studio and even took a photo of her with her camera which you’ll see below!  Liz’s mom Marion came along for the fun, Liz looked amazing and we are excited to show you these highlights so let’s get to it…

Allure Of Liz’s Lovely Senior Session

We started out in the studio and here is a good time to give a shout out to Mandy Rose studio for the makeup – a fantastic job as usual.

Allure

Love that setup with the damask backdrop and the wooden floor!  And love Liz’s style!

We also have some fun behind the scenes here first with the replay of our YouTube Live broadcast getting the photo above!

While we were in the studio we let Liz break out her Nikon and we took this fun photo:

Allure

So fun – a girl and her camera and a girl after our own hearts!!!

At this point it was time to head out on location in Birmingham where we had a great day and where we captured this next photo – stunning really…

Allure

Wow.  Absolutely gorgeous.

Here’s another behind the scenes replay from the day this time from Facebook Live:

  And here is a final shot which comes from the replay above:

Allure

Adorable!!!

And there you have it – we’re pretty confident you get the allure of Liz’s lovely session after seeing these sneak peeks!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Sami Spokesmodels and Slays At A Splendid New Spot!

Here we go moving right along with the upcoming class of 2018 as Sami spokesmodels and slays!  We are pretty excited for Sami as we are with all of the members of our new crew so far, and with this session we are particularly excited because we ventured out to a new location we’ve never been to and boy was it worth it!  Ally had the idea to give Mill Race Park a try in Commerce, and what a cool spot!  The Huron River, trails, a bridge, a covered bridge, graffiti – this park has it all, and all the features are in close proximity to each other.  A real gem!

Speaking of gems, Sami is surely one herself.  We’ve known Sami for a few years as well as her mom and dad and she is a real sweetheart – everyone has nothing but the nicest things to say about Sami!  She’s not only sweet and adorable either – she’s on debate team, Peer Corps, and she dances too!  She looked beautiful and the weather was crazy warm – 60 degrees on February 23rd!!!  And yes – that was yesterday as of this writing!  Ally was pretty excited to go through these and she grabbed 4 to edit so we could rush this out onto the blog and send out in our weekly Friday newsletter which you can sign up for here.  So with a quick shout out to the girls at Mandy Rose Studio for Sami’s makeup and hair let’s get to the location shots where Sami spokesmodels and slays shall we?

Sami Spokesmodels and Slays….

So the first landmark we came across was this cool bridge and that’s where we started:

Sami Spokesmodels

Love it!  

We also have plenty of behind the scenes fun from the session for you to check out.  First the replay of our live Periscope broadcast – you can join us on Periscope to be a part of our broadcasts here or you can just follow and watch from twitter as well! 

There are some great remains from the Commerce Roller Mill which dates back to the 1840’s so we played around with them for some shots – here’s one…

Sami Spokesmodels

When we were researching this location there was mention on the website of a covered bridge so we (Sami actually) found it and we fired up another Facebook Live broadcast…

…..and here is a resulting photo from the bridge!  “Sami’s bridge” going forward since she pioneered it which is how we roll here at Frameable Faces.  Actually the whole park is Sami’s…. lol.

Sami Spokesmodels

How cute is she?

Okay now we have one more shot to share – Ally loves this one of Sami just being adorable looking over her shoulder with more ruins in the background…

Sami Spokesmodels

We also did a few shots in the studio and you take a look at the behind the scenes fun below!  Sami will ultimately be able to share some of these on her own but we wanted to focus on the location for this post since it was a new spot for us!

We’ll finish it off with the Snapchat story we posted from the session – be sure to follow us there too!

So there you have it!  We now know when Sami spokesmodels it’s surely something special and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!  She’ll be back on this blog and in the window of our studio – we’re not through with her yet!!!  Lol!
