A Last Hurrah Session For A Family Starting A New Chapter!

Jaime was here years ago with her first born when she was a baby and then again with her middle child, and she called us to say she wanted to bring everything full circle with a family session of her, her hubby, and her THREE kids before they move across the state!  We love reconnecting with our Frameable families and seeing how they’ve grown, and this was a nice poignant moment to capture with a last hurrah session in Northville before they start their new chapter!

Last Hurrah Session In Northville!

We went to a park the kids have played in many many times and we started with them pushing this big spinning rock – just having fun!

Last Hurrah Session

Of course we have a little bit of fun behind the scenes from the Snapchat story from the day…

Now let’s take a look at a few more of the whole fam…

Last Hurrah Session

What a crew!

We like the composition of this next scene framing the family…

Last Hurrah Session

Such a lovely scene!

And there you have it!  A really nice last hurrah session before the move and we wish them the very best in their new ‘hood!!!

Get Your Professional Headshots! These Three Did – Here Are Examples!

Professional headshots are important for lots of reasons and lots of different needs.  For starters they look….well….professional, and if you are looking for a job, promoting your brand, modeling, or looking to get your personality across in a way that does it right your best bet is to trust a pro – not just Ally but in general.  Here we have a few recent ones to share with you just for fun, partly because it may be helpful, give you an idea or two, and let’s be real – we just like these people and we want them on our blog.

Get Your Professional Headshots!

We’ll start with Jack.  Jack is a bad dude and freshly graduated from the University of Michigan – he’s heading out into the workplace, already has a gig lined up and needs a nice professional photo to put online – like LinkedIn perhaps.  When it comes to professional headshots for many LinkedIn is the go to because that’s typically where you represent your professional self.  Yes LinkedIn is social, but it’s social in a professional context so if you’re a consultant or an attorney you may not want a funny photo of you eating a burger which could be good for a giggle on Facebook for example.  These are relatively standard with a slight difference in posture from one to the next which signals a little more engagement with the viewer respectively…

Jack

Professional Headshots

And now leaning in a little…

Professional Headshots

There are lots of nuances to the posing depending on how you want to represent yourself…

Of course it wouldn’t be a Frameable Faces blog post without some behind the scenes fun right?  Just a quick blast from twitter…

Leah

Next we have Leah – Leah is an aspiring model and needed some photos to send to agencies and eventually maybe some comp cards – we do plenty of these and they’re a lot of fun!  Leah was great in front of the camera!!!

Professional Headshots

Here’s a little Facebook fun behind the scenes from Leah’s session….  

And here’s one more from Leah…  what a rock star!

Professional Headshots

Ken

Last but not least here’s Ken – yes you recognize him as the play-by-play announcer for the Detroit Red Wings on Fox Sports Detroit.  Ken is obviously an established guy and needed a few different photos for various things he has going and in his case while we used the same blue / grey mottled backdrop we used for Jack above we changed it up and did a couple professional and a couple casual.  Different styles for different uses.

Here’s the casual in three quarter length:

Professional Headshots

Some behind the scenes fun where you can see Ken switched to a more formal look…

…and the result:

Professional Headshots

Success!

And now all three of them have the professional headshots to help them with their successes in the world!  Hope you enjoyed this photo essay – we sure enjoyed having them here at the studio!

Alexandria Adorable – A Smushy Little Cutie at Two Months!

Alexandria Adorable just sums it up.  What a cute little smushy baby with a TON of personality at such a young age!  We don’t usually expect to get smiles like we did at 2 months but Alexandria is already ahead of her time, and her parents La Shawn and Aaron are just delightful.  We had a great time with them and Alexandria couldn’t have been easier to work with.  No crying, no meltdowns – a total pro at 2 months!

Alexandria Adorable

So let’s get to some highlights shall we?  We’ll start on the orange chair:

Alexandria Adorable

She’s SO CUTE!!!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the session – first with the replay of the Facebook Live livestream:

At one point Alexandria decided to take a little snooze – like an angel….

Alexandria Adorable

La Shawn and Aaron got into the act a little as well for a few family portraits and we have some more behind the scenes of that with the raw video replay from the Instagram Live:

And here is a really nice one of the three of them…

Alexandria Adorable

Lots of love in that photo!

We’ll leave you with one more of Miss Alexandria being all pretty in pink:

Alexandria Adorable

And there you have it!  Alexandria Adorable indeed.  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with them!

A Classic Frameable Family and a Mother’s Day Surprise!

The Stones are legends here – a classic Frameable family!  For starters Cheyenne and Sierra were both seniors here, with a stunning plexiglass of Cheyenne still hanging in the studio and Sierra having represented us as a spokesmodel for the class of 2013 (she’s the first one in this post from back then).  Through working with them we’ve become friends and while Cheyenne and Sierra have graduated college and moved to different states we’ve remained close with their parents Beth and Sheldon back here in Michigan.  So this year we conspired with the girls along with Sheldon to have them both fly home and surprise Beth for a family session for Mother’s Day here at the studio!  It was kind of funny because we had been out with Beth and Sheldon the week before and Sierra called while we were with them and everyone was saying “one of these days” they’ll have to get in to do a family session.  Beth had no clue – it was awesome….

A Mother’s Day Surprise

We were so excited – plus we miss the girls – we love them!  They came to the studio with Wrigley the pup they rescued here at the mall from one of the Detroit Dog Rescue events we have from time to time.  What a blast we had!  Let’s take a look at a few highlights:

Classic Frameable Family

They’re awesome.

We also have plenty of fun behind the scenes action – first with the livestream replay from Facebook Live:

A Classic Frameable Family

Once we got a few of those photos finished we started to switch it up a little – all the different combos – and we love the ones with Beth and the girls and Sheldon with the girls:

Classic Frameable Family

BEAUTIES!!!  #Swoon

And how fun is this one of Sheldon with the daddy’s girls…

Classic Frameable Family

Love it.

We also have the Snapchat story from the session for you from our YouTube channel which is a lot of fun!

We’ll leave you with this a-MAIZE-ing family portrait….

Classic Frameable Family

GO BLUE!!!

And there you have it – a classic Frameable family indeed and such a fun time for us to be with them again!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of their session!

5 Totally Legit Reasons You Should Join Our Patreon Page!

Patreon is described in Wikipedia as “a membership platform that provides business tools for creators to run a subscription content service, as well as ways for artists to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or “patrons.”  We have our own Patreon, we are working really hard on it and we believe in it.  We hope you will join us and here are 5 totally legit reasons why you should.

Patreon

5 Totally Legit Reasons Why You Should Join Our Patreon Page

 

First of all, Patreon itself is really cool.

Let’s just talk about Patreon for a second if you aren’t familiar with it.  It’s a great website as well as mobile app that is growing and adding features and opportunities constantly.  You can find creators of all sorts to connect with there and subscribe to their page for anywhere from one dollar to $15 per month (and sometimes more for really big rewards) just for various levels of fun basic content.  Artists, musicians, comedians, business gurus, podcasters, vloggers – you name it.  And the creators who rely on this platform to make a living at what they do are generally really thankful for their communities who subscribe for their content.

As an end user you can go on the desktop version and even better download the mobile app.  The creators you subscribe to can upload video, audio, photos, livestreams, links, polls, stories, or just text  right to the app.  So you can listen, watch, comment, and interact with other fans & followers all from your smartphone.  You can access all of these things on demand as you like – a great way to support the people you enjoy on the go.  You’ll love it. 

Keep in mind that the best creators on Patreon typically have YouTube channels, blogs, Instagram and Snapchat, and a whole variety of profiles online where they’re sharing free content, but the ones who do it right are giving extra rewards and exclusive content to their patrons because the patrons are paying for it – they definitely appreciate your support.

As for OUR Patreon page, we’ve already posted a TON of stuff there…and we’re adding more.

We aren’t messing around.  We are off to a solid start with a handful of subscribers and we are working really hard to create content exclusively for Patreon.  Heck, part of the impetus for starting Patreon was the fact that people were asking us on our Periscope 📷Doug&Ally📷Morning Show!🎙☕ to do a podcast.  While we thought that would be fun we figured at some point it has to be sustainable for us to keep adding content that isn’t exactly our core business of photography.  Yes our content highlights our brand and is great for promotion but certain content in and of itself has value if we do it right and there are only so many hours in the day – as I said it has to be sustainable.  We felt a podcast along with some other things would fit the bill… so The📷Doug&Ally📷Morning Show!🎙☕………Podcast!  was born…

Patreon

We are having a blast with the podcast, and a shout out goes to the amazing Olivia Thai who supplied the little impromptu beatbox intro that you hear at the beginning of each one which we literally pulled from when she called into our morning show one day!

Meanwhile, we have SO much else to offer, and so we’ve been pouring ourselves into creating content for Patreon much like the courses we have taught here at our studio such as Doug’s teachings in his “2 Hour Social Media Class” and Ally’s “Photography 101” class.  People who follow us outside of the Metro Detroit area had been asking for a way to learn from us or get online courses and now Patreon gives us a way to do that with in-depth tutorials that we upload there.  The feedback on these has been solid (more on that in a bit) and we’ll even take requests on topics that our Patrons want covered specifically.  We do some of these with recordings of our computer screens while we’re walking you through how to create social media content or how to edit a photo in Photoshop.  These are great because you can access them on demand, at your own pace and you can watch them repeatedly.

We’ve added a few other exclusive series there too such as “Entrepreneur Life” where we talk about the highs and lows, thrills and challenges of having your own business – things that we’ve learned and sometimes the hard way…  We even include the occasional blooper!  As of this first writing we are at over 40 pieces of content total, available at the various levels.

You may find if you browse around Patreon overall that there are some who use their page simply as a donation mechanism – a way for their followers to contribute money to support what they are already doing elsewhere.  Not calling anyone out specifically or saying that’s bad per se…  But that’s not our strategy.  If you’re paying for our Patreon, you’re getting your money’s worth ON Patreon.  We’ll even send you a 📷Doug&Ally📷Morning Show!🎙☕ bookmark at the $5 level and up!

Our Patrons Are Happy – they are validating what we are doing there – so take their word for it!

We are getting great feedback so far and there are subscription levels for everybody – from just $2 per month to be included in our private Periscope group – this is a great thing by the way.  Sometimes we just go on Periscope live in a private broadcast just for our Patrons to get feedback, chat or we’ll even livestream there under our own personal profiles @dougcohen10 or @AllyCohen_1 if we feel like waxing poetic on our own passions like music, history, football, parenting – whatever, and the patrons are really enjoying this.  We are getting great feedback so far at all of the various reward levels.  Take a look at some of the comments from the page…

Participation and Community is at the heart of what we do – Patreon is a shining example

We’ve always said we are all the Frameable Faces – sure it’s Doug & Ally – we own the business.  But we’re part of the community just like everyone else, and it’s our peeps that make our studio and it will be our peeps that make the Patreon page too.  Our friend Gareth from the UK is “Pliny The Round” and he’s already been posting in the “Community” tab on the Patreon which is awesome.  The people do and will continue to shape the community there.  We’ve had Patrons make suggestions for things to include in the Podcast and we frequently reach out for feedback.  At this point we are toying with adding Discord to our page (an app much like Slack that gamers have traditionally used for group chat and voice to text around certain topics) which can be integrated with Patreon.  Just another way to bring the community closer together – so we’ll see how Discord plays out.  Regardless, with Patreon since people are subscribing everyone has a vested interest in making it great!

When we share tips we don’t hold back – we pour out our knowledge…

We don’t really horde our secrets.  We subscribe to the idea that sharing helps the community, it helps the industry whether that be social media or photography, and we never have just one main magic sauce really anyway.  Once we’ve shared the sauce we’ve already concocted the next one.  We’re always concocting a new sauce and improving the current sauce, and just because someone took our sauce and tried to make it doesn’t mean they’ll make it exactly how we made it.  If by chance they made it better than us?  Well than that will just give us something to shoot for won’t it?

If you like the way we do things and you think you could learn from us, you will at our Patreon page.  We promise.  Thanks for reading and we hope to you see you there!  We won’t let you down!

Krista Brought Joe & Cutest Parents Jim & Jean By For A Special Session!

Krista and Joe have been to the studio a couple times before for various family photos – some with the kids, but never with just them and Krista’s parents Jim and Jean.  We are so happy they did this because it was much fun and just really so special!  You could just tell this meant a lot to all of them and the behind the scenes from Facebook and Snapchat will give you a sense of that.  Besides Jim and Jean were both a delight to have a little fun banter with – they were great on camera!  We nominate them in the category of Cutest Parents Ever.

Cutest Parents Ever!

These photos were all done in the studio with a couple of outfit changes for Krista and Joe so they could get a few photos together just the two of them.  But first we’re going to focus on the photos that include Jim and Jean, starting with a group photo:

Cutest Parents

Next we have this wonderful photo of Jim and Jean together…

Cutest Parents

So much love in that photo!  And here you can see just how much fun we were having in the behind the scenes livestream from Facebook Live!  Just click on the arrow in the middle of the image below.

 

We’ll share one of Krista and her mommy before we conclude with one of Krista and Joe…

Cutest Parents

LOVE.

Now we have one of Krista and Joe a bit more dressed up and looking GREAT!

Cutest Parents

Last but not least we decided to upload the Snapchat story to our YouTube channel so we could include it here just because there were a few more great moments there….

So there you have it!  Krista, Joe, and Krista’s cutest parents!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with them!

A Sweet Time Was Had By All At Dylan’s Candy Bat Mitzvah!

It’s always a great honor to be trusted with the responsibility of taking the photos of an important event – a milestone in the life of a family and a bat mitzvah is certainly one that fits that description!  In this case we are presenting a few highlights from Dylan’s recent bat mitzvah with the party theme of “Dylan’s Candy Bat Mitzvah” with the photos by our wonderful event photographer Angela!

A Sweet Time for Dylan

We actually remember when Dylan was born and we have known her parents Danny and Angela (don’t get confused – yes our event photographer and the bat mitzvah’s mom’s names are both Angela) for well before that, so these photos are really neat to have on our blog!  Let’s start with the star – Dylan!

Candy Bat Mitzvah

The beautiful bat mitzvah girl!

We are also big fans of this photo which Angela is able to capture at each and every mitzvah – the proud parents looking on…

Candy Bat Mitzvah

And how about a slightly-silly-but-spot-on family portrait….?  You know they were having fun.

Candy Bat Mitzvah

Dylan’s Candy Bat Mitzvah!

Let’s head to the party shall we?  Here’s a great photo from the candle lighting…

Candy Bat Mitzvah

…and here’s Dylan with her crew:

Candy Bat Mitzvah

We’ll end it up on the traditional hora dance as the girl of the hour gets lifted up above the crowd!

Candy Bat Mitzvah

And there you have it!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of Dylan’s celebration!

A Dashing Senior Session With JoJo In More Ways Than One!

What can we say about JoJo without gushing with superlatives?  Probably nothing, so let’s gush.  What a special kid – smart, a total sweetheart, gorgeous, athletic – the list goes on.  We just connected with JoJo and her mom Bianca!  Even grandma Linda came along and what a day we had.  These are some of our favorite photos from the class of 2018 for sure and definitely one of our favorite seniors!  You might say the session was dashing – in more ways than one – you’ll see why…

A Dashing Senior Session With JoJo…

We started out in the studio for a few portraits and what a start to the session!  We started out with the black and blowy setup and this black and white photo is just so classic… love this!Dashing

Next we broke out the pink paper and went live on Facebook Live for some behind the scenes fun – take a look!

And here is the pretty-in-pink result!

Dashing

She is adorable!

At this point we headed outside for some location photos and here’s a gem:

Dashing

The actual dashing….

Now here is where the double meaning of the dashing comes into play…  JoJo is a sprinter and a good one at that, so we went down to the track to get a few photos in uniform.  We fired up the Instagram Live for this and here is the replay from our YouTube channel:

Now here is the coup de grace – an image that is pretty much immediate Frameable Faces ICON status – WOW.

Dashing

You will likely see this photo in our studio somewhere soon….

And there you have it – a dashing session with JoJo indeed!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights from our day with her!

It’s Time For The Class of 2019 Spokesmodel Panorama…..RAMA!!!

Here we go with the Class of 2019 Spokesmodel Panorama…..RAMA!!!  We did this last year and this is just our fun way of stacking these behind the scenes iPhone panoramic photos that Doug took during our spokesmodel sessions.  There’s something cool about the way the scope of a panoramic photo can capture and distort a scene in a weird and wonderful way!  These are not “professional” photos by any stretch and are not meant to be taken too seriously, but they are a fun way to recap our last few months with our Class of 2019 crew as we head into senior season!

2019 Spokesmodel Panorama

This year’s sessions took us to the usual haunts as well as a new one or two… burned out buildings, majestic theaters, trails and parks, and of course the Frameable Faces studio!  We have such an outstanding team representing us this year for the class of 2019 and so in no particular order, here is your panorama…..RAMA!

In Pontiac and In The Zone With Zaire For Senior Pictures!

I’ve always said when a senior calls the studio themselves and sets up the appointment for their own senior pictures that it’s impressive.  Not a HUGE thing per se, but it’s usually an indication that they can take some initiative and get things done and we were impressed with Zaire from the start.  What a great kid – even called ahead on the day of the session to let us know he might be a few minutes late, and when I said don’t sweat it he said it was important to him to apologize.  That says a lot!  As for his mom April she’s great too – she has just a little going on with Zaire’s graduation coming up AND Zaire’s sister graduating from college out of state – she’s stressed!  But there’s NO stress here at Frameable Faces!  Especially when we’ve got such a great senior to photograph and a great day in Pontiac to do it!

In The Zone With Zaire…

Now we will say that we started briefly in the studio to get a few photos on the grey in Zaire’s suit, and while these turned out just fine we’re only going to show you the fun behind the scenes replay of the Instagram live from our YouTube channel because we just love the location photos so much!

Good times and the dude was looking dapper!

To Pontiac

To Pontiac we went and Zaire kept the nice clothes on for the first set of photos where we got this result:

Zaire

One of our faves from the session for sure…

At this point we went more casual:

Zaire

We like the reflection in the glass on that one…

Zaire

Same outfit, different sidewalk!

We also have more behind the scenes fun with the replay of our Facebook Live video at another cool spot…  take a look!

And here is the cool result!

Zaire

Love that one!

So as you can see we were indeed in the zone with Zaire and had a fantastic time with him – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!
