Good Karma With Kamari On Her Senior Session In Detroit!

Kamari is literally an anagram of karma with a fun “i” on the end, and if karma is the sum of your energy from your actions then yes, Kamari has good karma judging by the result of this awesome session in Detroit!  We actually knew this already because it’s not the first or even the second time Kamari has been in front of Ally’s camera!  The first time was when she was little for some family pics, and the second time was as a spokesmodel for us for the class of 2022!  She comes from a great family, her dad Jahmal joined us in Detroit for this session & mom Kimberly made an appearance at the studio as well!  We love these guys.  So let’s get to the highlights!

Good Karma With Kamari

We started at the Detroit Institute Of Arts which is a great spot:

Good Karma

She looks amazing!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from Facebook Live:

Next we headed over to Eastern Market which is where we spent the rest of the session really – and we got great stuff…
Good Karma
That magenta / pink – what a great background for her!
 
This is where part of that karma kicks in – anytime we find a new spot at a location we’ve been to many times that’s a big deal for us, and we never really noticed this one dead end as an option.  Jahmal gets most of the credit – we think he was the one who pointed it out (?).
 
Good Karma
So cool!
 
Lots of little nooks and crannies in this area and we have a little more behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram:

Love it – good karma indeed with Kamari!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

A Symphonic Session of Senior Pictures With Jonah!

Yes this was a symphonic session indeed, because Jonah is a composer!  An extremely talented young man who attends Interlochen, we hadn’t seen him since he was a little boy and we were thrilled to have him at the studio with his cello for his senior pictures!  I (Doug) used to play the cello in my high school orchestra so I’m obviously a fan of the instrument, and we are now pretty big fans of Jonah.  We’ve known his parents Andy and Dana forever and Dana joined us on his session, while we saw Andy back at the house for a couple pics by the piano!  Good times.  Let’s get to the highlights!

A Symphonic Session!

We started in the studio…

The master musician!  You can actually check out Jonah’s website here!  We also have some fun behind the scenes first from the studio on Facebook:

At this point we headed out on location for a couple over by the WB library:

Handsome dude!

We also got a few with a little nature… here’s one:

Very cool.

And there you have it – a symphonic session with this senior indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with Jonah!

Lindsey In Her Own League With Her Senior Pictures!

We’ve had great luck with Lindseys throughout the history of the studio…. some of our favorite people to photograph have been Lindseys!  We’re here to tell you this one has continued the tradition, put her stamp on it and perhaps even upped the ante – Lindsey in her own league if you will!  We LOVE this girl. 

You’ve seen Lindsey on the blog before as a spokesmodel representing this current class of 2022 and we were pretty excited to have her back in front of Ally’s camera again and to hang with her and her mom Stacy, so let’s get to the highlights!

Lindsey In Her Own League!

Her Own League

WOW.

We also have some behind the scenes first from Facebook:

You can tell we were having a blast!  Lindsey just fits – she’s one of our peeps no doubt and a total sweetheart. 

Time for an outfit change…

Her Own League

LOVE the white.  She’s totally adorable.

We also have some behind the scenes from Instagram in the “barrel” that we love!

Allow Us To Rave About Rachel And Her Senior Pictures…

Allow us to Rave About Rachel for a few minutes please.  What an impressive young lady!  She’s just a beautiful person inside and out – smart, fun, outgoing, nice, a student athlete – the whole enchilada.  We just met her and her mom Lisa but our families have connections going back to our days at North Farmington so we felt like old friends immediately, and we had a phenomenal day together for Rachel’s session – one to remember for sure.  There’s a story in this one….

For starters, we were watching the weather forecast like a hawk because we thought there was supposed to be a chance of a storm.  But weather.com’s hourly forecast for Birmingham as late as 1:30 was showing around an 11% – 15% chance of precipitation for the hours of 3PM and on for the rest of the day – which from experience is pretty darn safe.  You know you’ll have great conditions…… 

Well around 2:30 the forecast suddenly changed to 58% chance of thunderstorms.  We were not happy.  But the hourly still showed that IF the storms came they’d taper off by 7 worst case, and at this point Rachel was already into getting her hair and makeup done so we still felt pretty confident that we should press on.

Allow Us To Rave About Rachel!

We started in the studio for this stunning pic:

Rave About Rachel

Right?

At this point we packed up to head to Birmingham.  And once we got outside to head North on Orchard Lake Rd. (detouring to Walnut Lake because of Maple construction) we saw that the sky ahead was BLACK.  Uh oh….

And sure enough sheets of rain with plenty of thunder and lightening ensued.  Now, we had all established that we could wait it out as long as we needed – no one had anywhere to be after.  But we couldn’t help being slightly nervous that this might not happen.  We couldn’t remember ever heading out to a senior session in a monsoon like this one… and I (Doug) actually tweeted at weather.com to give them a little “feedback” lol…  We know the weather changes but logic defies the idea that at 1:30 there was only an ELEVEN percent chance of any rain.  They blew this one.

We sat in our cars at the location waiting out the storm for about a half hour or so before we all decided we needed a midday coffee, so we went to the closest Starbucks and hung out for a little while which was actually great, and then lo and behold – the storm passed!  And not only did it pass, but it left perfect weather in its wake for us!

I knew it all along…. hehe.

So let’s goooooooooooo!  Check out these awesome highlights!

We even used a puddle for a reflection…. making lemonade out of a lemon!

Josh Wasn’t Joshing Around For His Senior Pics – The Dude Was On Fire!

Josh wasn’t joshing around with his senior pictures – the kid was on FIRE!  Okay well HE wasn’t on fire, but his tennis racket was, and figuratively speaking he did a great job on the rest so the title fits.  He’s a North Farmington Raider and a legacy Frameable senior since his older sis Rachel came through here for her session so we were excited to spend some more time with Josh and Rachel’s mom Susan who is a delight and to photograph another one of her kids!  So let’s get to some highlights:

Josh Wasn’t Joshing Around… 

We started off in the studio for the fire…

Joshing Around

We love these….

And we have some behind the scenes from this one too from Facebook:

At this point we headed to Birmingham for the rest…

Looking good!

We also like this white marble…

BASSICALLY we love Meg and this session – it’s true.  What a sweetheart and a multiple threat!  A student athlete, a musician, beautiful on the inside and out, smart and nice.  The whole package, and we really enjoyed a wonderful day with her and her mom Carolyn in Birmingham!  Let’s get to the highlights!

BASSICALLY we love Meg!

Our conditions were awesome and the backlight on this first photo is perfect!

Garth Was Stylin’ For His Headshots…and His Cars!

Jumping Into The Class Of 2022 With Jordyn In Detroit!

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…

Jordyn

LOVE HER

One more from this spot up close!

Jordyn

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…

Jordyn

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:

Jordyn

Pretty in pink!

We’ll also leave you with a little more behind the scenes with a TikTok recap!

@frameablefacesWhat a day in #Detroit with @jordyn.tepper for #SeniorPictures! ❤️🏙Love her! #ClassOf2022 #photoshoot #FrameableFaces #photography #SeniorYear #2022♬ original sound – Frameable Faces

So there you have it!  We had so much fun with Jordyn!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

The Camera On Camryn For Her Bat Mitzvah Celebration!

We put the camera on Camryn and her family members for her recent bat mitzvah celebration!  These events are so special and our event photographer Angela captures them so well!  We’re happy to share these highlights with you of Camryn’s special day!

Camera On Camryn

Let’s get to the photos at Temple Israel of Camryn and her family – this was earlier in the year before there could be any real events due to COVID-19, but that didn’t get in the way of celebrating such a special milestone!

There’s the young lady with her mom Laura!

Here’s Camryn with dad Jeff, mom Laura and brother Devin!

And now a little spotlight on the girl of the hour…
