Emma Inspires – From Survival to Thrival….Which Kicks Ass and is SEXY!

I tweeted today that if survive, survival, and thrive are all words then so should thrival be one.  Emma was forced into pure survival when she was diagnosed with cancer, but these days since she beat it we would say she’s into THRIVAL.  What an inspiration she is!  She’s been our friend for years, and her family has all appeared on this blog before.  But this time was a little different…

Dropping a Boudoir Bombshell…

We’ve been doing more boudoir lately as you may have seen and in this case Fox 2 Detroit was coming to the studio to do a feature on it.  We had a live model ready but she had to cancel so Ally was in a bind and she called Emma, basically telling her she needed her to get ready and come to the studio to pose for sexy photos on television!!!  Emma is a beauty and she was game – maybe because she didn’t have a ton of time to think about it!

But what ensued was more than we all bargained for.  Ally frankly didn’t give a ton of thought to the fact that Emma was a survivor when she called her.  It wasn’t about that at all, and yet when Emma got in front of Ally’s camera and slayed, it became a really empowering and flat out awesome moment.  To hear Emma tell us how this put some of her story into perspective to see herself this way after having gone through such intense sickness when she didn’t look “healthy or sexy”.  It was a powerful moment for everyone at the studio including the crew from Fox 2.  Boudoir takes the story in directions you don’t expect sometimes and the results here are…..well, WOW.

Now keep in mind this isn’t a typical boudoir session since we did it here in the studio which can be a little….limiting.  But we have some highlights to share on the black background and they still sizzle:

Gotta love a girl in a guy’s dress shirt and not a whole lot else….  😉

Getting a little flirty! 🔥🔥🔥

And we’ll leave you with this closeup…

Emma felt great about these and how couldn’t she!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of her inspiring session!!!

Allure Of Anticipation – Boudoir Photos Of Sexy (And Expectant) Lindsay!

What is sexy?  Well lots of things… confidence, beauty – inner and outer beauty that is, attitude, looks, smarts – all of these things can be sexy no doubt. 

What about pregnancy?

YES.  SOOOOO sexy!!!!!!

A beautiful woman carrying a child – a nuturer, a protector with that bump is absolutely sexy and a boudoir photo session is a perfect way to capture that.  Lindsay owned it in front of Ally’s camera and we are thrilled to share the results!  Boudoir sessions can be done a number of ways – in the intimate setting of someone’s home, here in the studio depending on how far we go (think nudity), or even outdoors in nature!  Obviously we don’t publish photos from all of our boudoir sessions, but with Lindsay’s permission we have some photos at her home and outdoors and we’ll highlight a couple of each here!

First we’ll start in the bedroom:

Allure of Anticipation with Lindsay…

Lindsay

BEAUTIFUL!

Lindsay

She looks incredible…

And let’s take a look at a couple outdoors:

Lindsay

If you’re thinking about boudoir remember these photos are for you first and foremost, but they’re obviously fun for your partner too!  They’re sure to spice things up.  🙂

Lindsay

Lindsay looks fantastic and thanks to her for letting us show off these fabulously spicy photos!  The allure of anticipation indeed!

Miss Cheryl Brings The Fam To Frameable Faces For Family Pictures!

Miss Cheryl is one of our faves and she’s known by that name to many in the community from nursery school days when she taught so many children including ours!  So when Cheryl called to say she wanted to bring her crew in we were so excited!  Everybody did a great job and we were able to capture some fantastic photos – memories that will last them a lifetime!

We kept this pretty simple with the white backdrop – a nice clean and contemporary look…

Miss Cheryl

Such great expressions – a happy crew!

Miss Cheryl

Just the grandparents with the grandkids… such a classic photo!

And now a couple with the family units…

Miss Cheryl

Adorable!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of the family fun!  It was a delight having them here!

Katie Krushed Her Spokesmodel Studio Session for the Class of 2020!

Katie Krushed it!  Yes she indeedy did, and we were so excited to have her here – we’ve known Katie as we said during the livestream since she was “pre-Katie”!!!  In the womb LOL….  Katie’s parents Kelly and Tim are dear friends of ours so the surrealness continues and this time was a pretty cool first because Katie is leading the way as our very first Clarkston Wolf spokesmodel!  The weather hadn’t quite warmed up yet and we still had a new studio backdrop to play with so we stayed indoors for this one.  Let’s get to the highlights:

Katie Krushed It

We started out on the grey fabric which we’ve actually had for a while but it seems to have been a while since we’ve used it so…

Katie Krushed

Love the fun full length with the ripped jeans!

We also have some fun behind the scenes action first from the Instagram Live broadcast as we went with the new green polka dot backdrop which we really like!

And here is the result:

Katie Krushed

Gorgeous!!!  And just love the colors.

Next we broke out the red Victorian couch and the damask backdrop to go with a dress that actually kind of matched and it looks so cool!

Katie Krushed

Here’s more behind the scenes from this setup this time from the Facebook Live broadcast!

The last one we’ll leave you with is the black with just a little blowy… one of our classic moves:

Katie Krushed

Love the color and those eyes on that girl!

And there you have it – Katie Krushed it indeed and we hope you liked the highlights – an awesome first for the Clarkston Wolves!

A Fun and Frameable Family of Three (Four including Lulu)!

Okay what a fun family we have here…  Just so delightful.  Say hello to Giacomo, Stephanie, Lorelai……..and Lulu.  Lol – Lulu the pup is hilarious – she did NOT like Doug.  Like at all, but she still posed for Ally and that was the important thing and we all had a good laugh about it too!  We had a lot of fun with these peeps.

Giacomo, Stephanie, Lorelai, and Lulu!

We spent part of a Saturday here at the studio with these folks and let’s get to a few highlights.  We started off with some fun family photos on the white background and this first one is hilarious – everyone is smiling / laughing because Lulu was barking at Doug while he was trying to help Ally and get Lulu’s attention.  So funny!

Lulu

We also have some behind the scenes from the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

After that series we moved to the black backdrop for some individual / couple images.

Here’s a fabulous one of Lorelai by herself:

Lulu

She’s adorable!

And here’s one of Lorelai together with Lulu!

Lulu

How great is that one?

We’ll leave you with this really nice one of Giacomo and Stephanie together…

Lulu

Such a happy couple and a happy day!

We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with this fabulous and Frameable Fam!

This Was A Fun and Fabulous Frameable Family of 6!

Sometimes life happens – things get crazy, you’re raising kids and it’s the glorious chaos of life, right?  Heba is a perfect example of this with the story of this session – first let’s just say at the end of the day she has 4 amazing kids and just an overall fabulous Frameable family!  4 kids ranging from 15 to 3 – which we know ain’t always easy, but judging by the results we have to give it up to her and Vinny – they are pulling it off in style.  Meanwhile Heba stopped in here a year ago to plan a family session and then it didn’t happen – like the first sentence I typed above life happened!  We had almost forgotten about her – almost.  But when she popped back in with a huge friendly smile asking “remember me?” I absolutely did and we were thrilled that she came back!  Her little man was turning 3 and the timing was good for them to get this scheduled.  So without further adieu let’s take a look – we’re going to present these a little differently than we usually would because we LOVE the 4 close ups of the children which Heba will be displaying in her home along with the family portrait!

Fabulous Frameable Family!

Let’s start with the traditional family portrait – what a gorgeous crew.  The little guy and I bonded – we were giving each other “two thumbs up” to get ready for each shot and he was a total pro – and I gotta tell you, not all 3 year olds are the easiest to photograph, but we usually can get it done and with this little one there was no problem.

So here is the Fabulous Frameable Family:

Fabulous Frameable

….and here are the children in order from oldest to youngest with matching close crop black and white portraits!  Love these.

Fabulous Frameable

Fabulous Frameable

Fabulous Frameable

Fabulous Frameable

Stunning right?  We really enjoyed having this crew in the studio, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with them!
