We Were Totally Taken With Tia On Her Senior Picture Session!

We were totally taken with Tia indeed on her senior session.  From the moment she came to the studio in a whirlwind with her mom Ban we were impressed.  Sharp, mature, personable, beautiful – the whole package!  They found us with a Google search, called, came right over, and less than a week later we were taking pictures!  It all happened very fast and it just worked – we connected.

Totally Taken With Tia

We started in the studio with a few outfits and backgrounds before we headed out on location to Birmingham accompanied by Ban and Tia’s older sis Tara who did Tia’s makeup!  We’ll start with the studio photos first:

Totally TakenWe will always love our “black and blowy” setup and Tia rocked it!

We also have some fun behind the scenes action for you starting with the raw feed from our Instagram LIVE video in the studio!


And here is one on the white background with the red outfit from the livestream…

Totally Taken

Love the ‘tude!  The girl was slaying!

At this point we headed out on location to get some summer looks at Quarton Lake.  We’ll start with this one in the flowery dress with a few black-eyed susans in the background:

We have more behind the scenes here this time from Facebook Live!

And we’ll leave you with this fun photo on the dock…

Totally Taken

Love it!!!!

You can clearly see how we were totally taken with Tia!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Mad About Marie And Her Wonderful Senior Session!

We’ve been mad about Marie for a long time now.  From the time she joined her older twin sisters on their session for a few photos a couple years ago to her spokesmodel session earlier this year and now culminating with her own senior session in Birmingham, we’ve been fans from day one!  We planned a total city photo shoot in Birmingham with her and she really nailed it – not that we were surprised.  She’s a real pro and so yeah, we’re mad about Marie!!!

Session in the City

We started at the top (of a parking structure) and worked our way down, and we had great conditions even getting a few well timed breezes before the storms came in.  We’ll start on the parking structure here:

Mad About Marie

Love the little hair lift from the breeze!

At this point we headed over to Quarton Lake because we liked the light we had and we knew a storm might roll on in…  It was a good move – this photo is perfect!

Mad About Marie

Let’s pause here for a minute for some behind the scenes action from the shoot shall we?  First we have our 6 second vine for your looping pleasure…

Next we have the replay of the live Periscope broadcast from the session.  If you haven’t downloaded Periscope yet and / or watched our channel on twitter you can do so on Periscope here or on Twitter here.

Fun right?  Okay let’s get back to a couple more photos…

Mad About Marie

At this point we headed back to downtown Birmingham to get our last set of shots – here we have a pop of color with some beautiful flowers to complement our girl…

Mad About Marie


We heard some thunder and the skies were looking ominous as we captured this last photo that we’ll leave you with.  Marie is a pro – you’d never know we were rushing to finish before the storm hit!

Mad About Marie

And there you have it!  You can see why we are mad about Marie and we hope you enjoyed the highlights from our day!

Marveling At Marie And Her Spokesmodel Session!

Marveling at Marie is something we started doing a couple years ago when she came along with her older twin sisters Kristen and Katherine on their senior session from the class of 2015.  We had our eye on her back then to be a spokesmodel when it was her turn, and now sure enough here she is!  Such beautiful girls and a beautiful mom too!  Marie’s mom Marilyn is one of our faves as well, so we were excited to get them in here and we can’t wait to have them back for Marie’s senior pictures too!  But first things first, let’s take a look at a few different colors and outfits that Marie rocked here in the studio for her spokesmodel session…

Marveling at Marie….

This was a total in-studio session where we could play around with a few different backdrops and for the highlights we’ll start with the grey fabric.  We love this look and haven’t used it a ton yet…

Marveling at Marie

Love the way the peach blends into it and Marie looks amazing!

Meanwhile we gave our Snapchat geofilter another whirl on this day – it was a pretty big day for the studio since we did a “Snapchat swap” with one of our Periscope friends Chris Strub where he took over our account and vice versa.  Here is a clip from our snap story from the day with our logo geofilter at the bottom and Marilyn chillin’ in the background which Marie comically points out…  haha!!!

Next we have a photo from the red background and this is a cool little “room” setup with one of our vintage chairs, the moulding and the floor…

Marveling at Marie

Now let’s take a look at our behind the scenes 6 second looping vine:

…and the first Periscope replay from the live broadcasts we did during the session so you can get a little more of a sense of the fun we have!

…and the second one!

Okay now let’s get back to a couple more photos!

Next we have one from the simple and contemporary look of the white background which is always a winner, and this pose is a winner too…

Marveling at Marie

Lastly we have one of our “signature moves” of the “black and blowy” setup which always delivers… and Marie knew how to deliver here too!

And there it is – you can see why we’re marveling at Marie, and why we can’t wait to get her back in here for her senior portraits later in the year!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights from her spokesmodel session!

O Juliet We Just Love Your Senior Session!

O Juliet we just LOVE your senior session!  That’s the truth.  We had amazing fall colors, a new outdoor prop we never used before, a great girl and a great mom and our results speak for themselves.  Juliet is a sweetheart and a really impressive girl with big plans and a clear head on her shoulders.  We can’t wait to see what she is going to accomplish with her life!  But for now let’s focus on the wonderful morning we spent with her!

We started on location where the fall colors were at their absolute peak – just look at this wall of color, and we love Juliet in the maroon dress – she looks beautiful, confident and content here.

O Juliet

We spent a little more time in the natural setting but we also got some really cool urban photos – and then the studio shots are amazing too….  We want to get to all of that so let’s move on.  🙂  Our next photo is just a fun engaging photo of Juliet on some steps which we think brings out her personality.

O Juliet

Here is our fun behind the scenes vine of the morning…  🙂

Now we’ll take a look at the spot we hadn’t used.  This outdoor “prop/barrel/tube thing” looks so cool in black and white – love this.  We’ll call it “senior in a circle” haha!

Senior in a circle

Lastly we headed back to the studio where we went with our black and blowy set up and we have to say that Juliet nailed this shot.  Like it was made for her – so dramatic and pretty!

High School Senior Girl - "O Juliet"

And that concludes our highlights of this session, even though we could have easily kept going – no shortage of amazing photos of this girl from that morning…  We hope you enjoyed them!


Kristen And Katherine – Double The Senior Fun!

Once in a while we have the pleasure of photographing twin seniors together and this was only the second time we have ever photographed twin girls.  Kristen and Katherine were a delight!  As twins they are alike in some ways but at the same time in many ways they are completely different.  One thing is for sure though and that is they are equally fun!  We spent an entire afternoon with them and we had a fantastic time.  Their mom is wonderful and even little sister got into a photo or two but those are for another time – this day the focus was on our senior twins and their own unique individual personalities!


Let’s start with Katherine.  With both girls we started out in the studio and while we shared some backgrounds and some locations we also kept a lot of it separate so each of the girls could have their own session.  Here is Katherine with our damask background:

Kristen and Katherine

Now let’s turn our attention to Katherine’s location photos which are quite awesome I must say!  Beautiful backlight and the slightest breeze on her hair give this one a great effect.Kristen and Katherine

Here is Katherine’s fun behind the scenes vine of her photos:

Next a gorgeous close up…

Kristen and Katherine

…and one more full length!

Kristen and Katherine

Just love them!  Now let’s move on to our other twin of the day, Kristen!


Kristen is as stunning as her sister and just as fun to be around!  We’ll start with a studio photo with her against the black background:

Kristen and Katherine

Now for Kristen’s location shots – spectacular!  She really is a natural – both girls were really easy to work with.

Kristen and Katherine

Here is Kristen’s fun behind the scenes vine of her photos:

Here is another photo where the breeze hits just right and gives Kristen’s hair that little lift that just enhances an already beautiful model!

Kristen and Katherine

And one more before we’re done with pretty backlight on Kristen’s hair…

Kristen and Katherine

So as you can see this was one doubly special day…

Okay – I guess we can’t be done yet right?  Gotta have one of them together!  I even grabbed a “bonus twin vine” haha!

And here is the “twice as nice” result!

Kristen and KatherineOkay now we can be done…now that we’re smiling ear to ear that is!  We hope you enjoyed these as much as we enjoyed being with these girls!

Class of 2014 Spokesmodel Party!

This year’s third annual spokesmodel party was a blast!  It’s definitely one of our favorite days of the year and the culmination of the planning, photographing, and getting to know our newest team!  Some of them we’ve known for years and some we’re just getting to know.  We’ve become very fond of each and every one of these seniors-to-be and to have them all at the studio wearing their Frameable Faces T-Shirts and hanging together is as good as it gets for us!

class of 2014 spokesmodel party

Our awesome team!

Just like last year we began the festivities with the debut of the new spokesmodel video with behind the scenes clips from the photo sessions and even a fun outtake at the end:

We then had dinner, and this year we had it catered by Pine Lake Market in Keego Harbor – the food was fantastic!  Then in keeping with tradition we ate Just Baked cupcakes.  Soooo good.

Our Just Baked Cupcakes!

Then we took some photos.  Everyone had picked up their t-shirts and spokesmodel cards which were laid out on the table when they arrived, and we took some team pictures first.

Frameable Faces Spokesmodel Swag!

Then it was everyone’s turn to do individual shots for the mural that goes in our window for the upcoming year which is always a lot of fun.  Look for that in about a month in our window and on Facebook.  There are actually some traditions within the murals emerging – like who will be the “jumpy girl”, who will be eating a Just Baked cupcake, which boy will be flexing his muscles, and who will do something that has not been done before?

All in all it was a great night and as we’ve said before, a great group of kids.




Class of 2014 Senior Spokesmodels Part 1!!!

We are excited to present a two part series of images of our new class of 2014 high school senior spokesmodels!  We couldn’t be happier with this wonderful group of young ladies and are very proud to have them representing Frameable Faces Photography for this upcoming school year!  Some of them we have just met recently and some we’ve known much longer – it’s hard to believe they will be seniors in a few short months!
