Mad About Maddie – Class of 2021 Version! Spokesmodel highlights!

This is the second year in a row we’ve had a spokesmodel named Maddie and we may have to just start recruiting Maddies as a strategy.  They seem to be pretty awesome as a category.  This Maddie is no exception – outgoing with a ton of personality and just a sweetheart!  We’ve photographed her cousins in the past so there is some connection there, her mom Stephanie is a delight, and we’re thrilled to have her representing the Farmington Hills Mercy Marlins for the class of 2021!

Mad About Maddie

We actually started out at Maddie’s house and we had a lovely day for pictures!

Okay she’s adorable.  Maddie is into theater so she definitely has that presence!
At this point it was time to head outside and hit one of our favorite locations by Orchard Lake, and we have some fun behind the scenes first from Facebook Live:

Back to a couple more pics – how about this close up at Orchard Lake?

Simply Sierra On A Perfect Sunny Morning!

We photographed Sierra on a perfect sunny morning for her senior session!  Sierra has been representing our studio as a spokesmodel this year and for her spokesmodel session we were completely in the studio.  We used basketballs, fire, huge fluffy hearts and tutus and it was fantastic.  After doing all that during the winter we were excited to get outdoors to get, well…. photos of simply Sierra!  After some potentially shaky looking forecasts we ended up with a gem of a morning…

Simply Sierra

Love the flower in her hair!  Sierra nominated both Ally and me for the ALS ice bucket challenge (which we did) a few days before her session so we let her think we were going to get her back somehow on the day of her session (but of course we wouldn’t do that).  Sierra has a great personality – very outgoing and she’s funny, and as the baby in a family of athletes she and I personally have a lot in common!

The lighting on this next shot is great – it was hitting this pathway just right and Reflecto helped out too…

When we met for our consultation Sierra had a few specific spots that she liked at several different places, and since we were spending our entire time on location our strategy was to stay on this side of town where we could drive and cherry pick spots from multiple locales and it worked out well!

Here is our fun behind the scenes vine from the morning:

Even the breeze cooperated to give her hair a nice little blowy effect!

Beautiful right?  Just relaxing in the grass, hanging out on pathways, and then there’s this which you saw in the vine:Simply Sierra

Love. It.  Just classic beauty all the way around!  It has been a pleasure having Sierra represent our studio this year and we hope you enjoyed these highlights from her senior session!

Sierra’s Spokesmodel Session Had Glamour AND Grit!

Sierra’s session starts a little trend with the class of 2015 spokesmodels as the first of three younger siblings of former seniors of ours and she is also one of five in this class whom we have photographed before.  Sierra actually appeared on the cover of our brochure from last year with the rest of her wonderful family, and we photographed two of her older siblings for their senior pictures featured here and here.  Sierra’s family has a strong athletic tradition and we of course wanted to highlight that here, but that was only a part of her session, and we will get to that a little later.  There are plenty of sides to Sierra so we wanted to present some options for the senior who can display versatility!  The “glamour AND grit”!!!

For now let’s start with super cute.


Just a simple white background and a nice smile can work every time and we like poses that frame the face like this one.  We also like a thoughtful pose up close in black and white like this next one – stunning!


We also love a little bit of attitude – so much fun!  Loving the leather…

Glamour and Grit

Now is where the session started to “heat up”!  Check out this behind-the-scenes vine of the action and you will see what we mean…
