Lo and Behold It’s Logan and His Killer Senior Session!

Lo and behold it’s Logan!  One of those surreal sessions for us since we’ve known this dude since he was a baby… he’s also a legacy here since his big sis Aria was one of our seniors last year (not to mention little sis Sedona had a Frameable bat mitzvah too) and this fam is one we’re very close with so this made for a fun one!

Lo and behold it’s Logan!

Meanwhile we were rained out twice for the location part of his session which was really the majority of what we had planned so we broke it up into two different days.  Logan’s mom Rachel came along and she and Ally did plenty of giggling getting Logan to laugh and smile…hehe…  So let’s start with a studio shot on day one:

Logan

Bad dude.

We also have some fun behind the scenes action starting with the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast from the studio:

Now let’s pick up the action on day 2 on location with some “Pure Michigan” colors!

Logan

Looking good!

For the behind the scenes on the location shoot we go to the snap story from Snapchat since there were some funny moments there…. lol!

And a couple more results:

Logan

How about that awesome Pure Michigan Color as a backdrop!!!

And we’ll leave you with one more…

Logan

And there you have it – lo and behold we made it happen with Logan even if we had to split up the session!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights!

Zak Is Back And In The Zone On His Senior Picture Session!

Zak is back and in the zone for senior pictures!  We say he’s back because he’s been here a couple times before – most recently on his spokesmodel session representing the class of 2018!  This time around with his mom Dena we went exclusively with on location photos and we got some great stuff…. 

Zak is back…

We started on Zak’s home golf course – home course for the Orchard Lake St. Mary’s golf team that is and with the fall colors coming in in the background we started with this one…

Zak Is Back

Fore!  Looking good!

We also have some behind the scenes for you here – this time we’re going to start with the Snap story from Snapchat which is a lot of fun!

While we were at the golf course Ally spied some steps she wanted to use and we got Zak in mid giggle here – he’s a good kid and Ally loves to mess with him.

Zak Is Back

Next we switched locations and brought out the 1970 Cuda!  So cool!

Zak Is Back

And here is some more behind the scenes from that shot from the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

And we’ll leave you with one more shot:

Zak Is Back

Zak is the man!

And there you have it!  Zak is back and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

In The Eden Of Orchard Lake For Senior Pictures….With Eden!

One of the definitions of an Eden is a place of pristine or abundant natural beauty, and Orchard Lake fits that description with beautiful Apple Island in the center.  It’s right up the road from the studio and a great backdrop for senior pictures!  So when an actual Eden came our way it seemed to make perfect sense to shoot there – by an “actual Eden” we mean our latest senior to highlight here on the blog – Eden!  Eden’s mom Lisa joined us and we had a great day starting in the studio so let’s begin there:

Eden

Love that – just simple on the white background!

We also have some fun behind the scenes as we usually do – first from the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:


 At this point we headed over to Orchard Lake and we also have some Pure Michigan fall color going on!

In the Eden Of Orchard Lake…

Eden

Beautiful – love Eden’s smile here and that’s Apple Island in the background with the pretty fall colors!  We also like the way the branch in the foreground frames her nicely…

Here’s another with more fall color:

Eden

So pretty!

Let’s take a look at some more behind the scenes action this time from the replay of our YouTube Live broadcast:

And one more from our day…

Eden

Love it – great one to finish with at our Eden with our Eden!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Ah Yeah Aliya! Your Senior Picture Session Rocked!

Ah yeah Aliya’s session rocked!  And why not?  Her sister Nadia’s session rocked and her whole family – well, they generally rock all the way around.  In other words, we like them.  With Aliya we actually were forced to break up her session into separate days due to weather which was fine with us – more time with her and her delightful mom Nisha!

Ah Yeah Aliya!

Meanwhile Aliya brought some traditional dress to the proceedings which always makes us happy – so beautiful to photograph with the vibrant colors and patterns!

We started in the studio on a crummy day outdoors as we mentioned before, but it’s always perfect in the studio so let’s take a look!

Ah Yeah Aliya

Love that!

We have some behind the scenes fun for you as well – first with the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast we did:

And one more from the studio before we get to our location day….

Ah Yeah Aliya

Love the earth tones, the wooden floor, the backdrop – all of it!

Now let’s head outside!  For our rescheduled day for the location part the weather cooperated much better and we headed over to the West Bloomfield trail network and nature preserve. 

Ah Yeah Aliya

Beautiful!  The lighting, the traditional clothing – Alia looks amazing!

We also have more behind the scenes – this time from the YouTube Live broadcast:

And we’ll leave you with one more from our day!

Ah Yeah Aliya

Great one to finish on!

And there you have it!  Ah yeah Aliya definitely rocked her senior session and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day(s) with her!

We Are Loving Lacey And We Couldn’t Be More Proud!

This isn’t the first time I’ve written about our daughter Lacey on this blog.  She represented our studio this year as a senior spokesmodel and we already did one epic session with her in downtown Detroit.  This time around it’s her senior session and it’s a good thing I’m writing this post because if Ally tried she’d probably be an emotional mess.  It goes fast – really fast, and here we are – it’s been 17 and a half years that we’ve been loving Lacey and we couldn’t be more proud!

Loving Lacey…

So for this session we had a connection that gave us a green light to photograph at Cranbrook where we are not typically allowed to photograph so we took advantage of it.  It was a great day!  We even had our would-be-intern Brittney with us even though she’s leaving us to move to Colorado… (we’re so bummed) but not before she documented our day with Lacey in a unique way which we hope to share soon, so stay tuned…

Meanwhile we started in the studio to do a few shots so let’s look at those first on the grey paper background:

Loving Lacey

That’s our girl!

Of course we have some fun behind the scenes for you first from the replay of the Periscope live stream broadcast.  If you want to be a part of future broadcasts and haven’t downloaded the app yet you can do so and follow us at @FrameableFaces at this link, or if you prefer to just watch from twitter you can do that here.

Here’s one more from the studio of Lacey with a cute red hat!

Loving Lacey

At this point it was time to head out and get some fall colors on this nice crisp November day of which there were some great ones!

This is one of our faves…

Loving Lacey

Here’s another broadcast replay from the location – this time on Facebook Live!

And here we have one more from outside:

Loving Lacey

I’m biased but I do love that smile…  So yes we are loving Lacey and always will be.  Don’t be surprised if there is yet another session (or two) of this girl before her senior year is done.  Ha!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with our girl!

Pure Hannah, Pure Michigan Fall Colors, Pure Awesome!

Yes this was a purely great session – some Pure Michigan Fall colors, plenty of pure awesome and pure Hannah – the latest Frameable Class of 2017 senior!  Now we actually did a combination of photos in the studio which are great for any season as well as some on location and we found one perfect brilliant red and orange fall tree that we’ll get to in a bit…

Pure Hannah

Meanwhile Hannah is a sweetheart and a friend of our daughter Lacey so we knew this would be a great session and it certainly was!  Hannah’s mom Shari joined us and she and Ally have known each other forever so we had plenty of fun!  Let’s start in the studio on the black background…

Pure Hannah

Beautiful!

We also have some behind the scenes fun here – first with the replay of our live Periscope broadcast from the studio and you can join us and be a part of future broadcasts by downloading the app and following us at @FrameableFaces at this link, or you can just watch from Twitter here.

Moving on to our next studio setup for one more before we head outside:

Pure Hannah

Love that background with the ripped jeans!

Now it’s time to head outside!  First on the West Bloomfield Trail Network where we were able to find a really pretty red and orange tree – here’s the broadcast from this portion of the session this time from Facebook Live:

And here’s the result!

Pure Hannah

How great is that?  Love the maroon to go with the reds and oranges too!  We explored a little and went over to a nearby nature preserve as well where we did one more broadcast on Periscope:

And here is the final sneak peek for now – fittingly a photo of just pure Hannah!

Pure Hannah

And there you have it!  Pure Michigan, Pure Hannah, Pure Awesome!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!

Bruw-ing A Stellar Senior Session With Max-imum Results!

So of course this title is a play on words right?  Well it’s because this stellar senior session features Max and he’s been here in the studio before….with his coffee beans and his cold BRUW filter which is his very own company!  This enterprising young entrepreneur is getting it done and you can check out his website along with a few photos by US at www.bruw.net!

Stellar Senior Session…

But here we need to get to the task at hand and that’s the highlights from Max’s stellar senior session!  Max’s mom Susan accompanied us and even his dad Dave came by for a bit on location!  We started out in the studio so let’s begin there with a formal shot of our guy on the grey paper background:

Stellar Senior Session

Niiiiice!

We also have some behind the scenes fun for you first with the replay of our live Periscope broadcast in the studio.  If you want to be a part of our shows there you can download the app and tune in at @FrameableFaces at this link, and if you just want to watch from twitter you can do that here.

Now it’s time to head outside where…

Fall colors were a-BRUW-in’

Yes they were!  Plenty of great spots to shoot right in and around West Bloomfield and that’s just where we stayed!  The first shot features more brick than oranges or reds but it’s cool!  Just Max chillin’

Stellar Senior Session

The next photo is a bit unique in that we don’t think we’ve used this chair on location before – it’s a neat photo with some of that “Pure Michigan” color in the background!  Here’s the behind the scenes of the shot from Facebook Live

…and the result!

Stellar Senior Session

Pretty nice!

One more Periscope replay for good measure (we were having a lot of fun)….  lol!

And one last photo of Max – and just as the rain started to fall too…. good timing!

Stellar Senior Session

And there it is!  We BRUWed a stellar senior session with Max for sure, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Oh My Maya! Yasss This Senior Session Was Quite Memorable!

Oh my Maya!  That’s what these photos will make you want to say out loud since Maya killed it on her senior session!  You may remember Maya’s spokesmodel session in Detroit from earlier this year since she represented our studio for the class of 2017, and we love when our spokesmodels return for their senior session!  You see, the spokesmodel session is kind of “our session” to try out new spots, backdrops, styles and trends, while the senior session is “their session” to do whatever they want!  In Maya’s case the plan was to get more of a fall session so we headed outside in October to do just that.

Oh My Maya!

Maya’s mom Julie joined us and we had a great time, but before we head out on location let’s take a look at a studio photo on the black background with Maya sporting her figure skating gear!  Very nice!

Oh My Maya

We also have some behind the scenes action for you from the day, first with a broadcast replay from the studio on Periscope – if you want to be a part of our shows there you can download the app and follow us at @FrameableFaces at this link, or if you just want to watch from Twitter you can do that as well here.

Now let’s head out to see the location shots, starting with this secluded bridge at Heritage Park where we spent our time… 

Oh My Maya

Gorgeous – the colors, the backlight, the senior!  🙂

Here’s another one at a different spot:

Oh My Maya

Conditions were just perfect and Maya looks fabulous!  Let’s take a look at some more behind the scenes this time from Facebook Live!

We’ll leave you with one more…

Oh My Maya

So cute!  And there you have it – oh my Maya!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights from our day with her!

Elizabeth Elicits Oohs and Aahs On Her Senior Session!

We’ve known Elizabeth a long time going back to elementary school days with our daughter and we hadn’t really “hung out” with her in a while.  We’ve seen her around town sure but this was so much fun on so many levels – for starters when she came in for her consultation we were struck by how grown up she had become and how much she sounded like her mom Lorie!  So cute – totally like a mini Lorie.  She’s a sharp cookie and an athlete – the girl has it all, and we knew this would be a fun session.  You’ll see below as Elizabeth elicits oohs and aahs!

Then, when she showed up the day of her session made up and ready to roll she looked beautiful!  That’s where the oohs and aahs started (haha).  And what was really cool was with their busy schedules it worked out better for her dad Adam to come to the session and we really had a great time.  Conditions were great and so off we went!

Elizabeth Elicits Oohs and Aahs…

We started in the studio and did a little shooting on the black background with our “black and blowy” setup – this is a great one to start with:

Elizabeth Elicits

Great huh?

Meanwhile here is the first of some behind the scenes broadcasts we did during our day – this one is from Periscope and you can follow us and be a part of the broadcasts at this link or you can just watch from twitter as well by following us there at this link:

Now as we get set to head outdoors for some location photos let’s have a little fun with the Snap story we posted that day on Snapchat!

Now it’s time to head outside for the location part of the session, and here we’ll give a little shout out on the makeup by Francie Paull Fruitman!

Elizabeth Elicits

Love the meadow photo…

As you see from the title of the second Periscope we were out there in the “golden hour” when the sun is going down and the lighting is amazing… and we have that little pop of fall color that we love!

Elizabeth Elicits

We also have a little more behind the scenes action too from Facebook!

And we’ll leave you with this last photo from the session…

Elizabeth Elicits

So we were happy to share and have Elizabeth elicit more oohs and aahs from you all!  We hope you enjoyed these highlights from our day with her!

Awesome Senior Portraits Are Easy With Eli!

The goal with senior sessions is always awesomeness.  That’s the goal.  We reach that goal with awesome seniors which we are fortunate to have here at Frameable Faces, and awesomeness was easy with Eli.  Eli is a cool dude – we like him a lot!  He’s easy to work with, an engaging, funny, smart and good looking kid and he’s a North Farmington Raider just like us.  His mom Elysa came along for the session and she is a pleasure.  They have a great mom/son relationship and we had a blast on a beautiful Michigan fall day!

Easy With Eli…

So yes this session was easy working with Eli, and we started on location at Heritage Park in Farmington Hills.  We had some nice fall colors to work with and we’ll start there with our first photo from the day:

Easy With Eli

Good stuff.

Before we share the rest of our sneak peeks let’s take a look at our behind the scenes fun from the session first with our looping 6 second Vine:

Next we have the extended replay of our live Periscope broadcasts (part on location and part in studio) from our YouTube channel.  If you haven’t downloaded Periscope yet for your mobile device you can do so and watch our shows at @frameablefaces at this link:

Okay back to the photos with this up close and personal photo of Eli…

Easy With Eli

More good stuff right?

Back to the studio…

At this point it was time to head back to the studio where some real magic happened.  This black and white with Eli in the hoodie is fantastic:

Easy With Eli

And last but not least Eli switched into a suit and tie for the GQ look against our grey background…

Easy With Eli

Nailed it.

And so there you have it – excellence, awesomeness – call it whatever you want but it was all easy with Eli!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!
