Highly awesome – yes indeed.  A fitting description of this fab senior session with our latest senior Holly – a session that makes us wanna holla!  Holly is a West Bloomfield Laker, a soccer player and an all around great girl – we really enjoyed her and her mom Nicole’s company for the perfect day we spent in Birmingham!

Holly’s Highly Awesome…

We focused this entire session on location in Birmingham and we couldn’t have asked for better weather!

We have some fun behind the scenes as we like to do as well – first from our live stream on Instagram

We Will Reach (No) Goals On This Senior Session With Jeremy.

No goals here.  Not on this session.  None.  Shutout of all goals.  Why?  Because Jeremy is a GOALIE!!!  You don’t score on Jeremy on this blog post – HE will do the scoring thank you very much.

Jeremy is a legacy here since we photographed his older bro Seth a couple years back and we were excited to have him and his awesome mom Tammy here for another round from this fam.  Jeremy definitely delivered and we did a couple of really unique things on this session!  We love the results and we have a few highlights for you here…

(No) Goals With Jeremy!

We started in the studio with the “GQ Goalie” look on the black background!  We’ve done similar photos with a basketball but not the suit with the equipment and the skates – how cool is this?

Goal

We’re big fans of the pink dress shirts on guys too – it’s a great look!

We actually played around with some fire too – here is the video of that with Jeremy in his Bloomfield Hills Blackhawks jersey from Instagram:

At this point we headed outdoors for some location photos:

Goals

Looking good – and we had a great day for it too!

Here’s a close up of our guy:

Goals

And the final set up was Jeremy with his 2016 Dodge Charger – nice ride!  Here’s the behind the scenes vid from that on Facebook:

And the result!

Goals

Sweeeeeeet.

And there you have it – Jeremy’s session was goals – but NONE that got past him… ha!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

What We Have With This Senior Session Is A Case Of Pure Kiana Nirvana!

Kiana Nirvana – it’s a state of being that you reach when you are having a blast with a certain St Johns, Michigan volleyball playing senior and her delightful mom Sonya, and we reached it!  They discovered us on Facebook when they saw a couple highlights from another volleyball player’s pics – Alivia – and they gave us a call!  St. Johns isn’t close, but Sonya actually spends some time down this way for business so they are familiar with the terrain so to speak… 

To minimize the extra trips we met over Facetime to plan out the session which was a lot of fun and we went with some studio volleyball fire and Quarton Lake for the location in Birmingham.  We were pleased to get perfect weather and the day was a memorable one!

Kiana Nirvana

We started indoors for the volleyball photos and here’s a highlight:

Kiana Nirvana

FIERCE!!!  Kiana has come a long way in her relatively short volleyball career and she is already committed to continue it at the college level at Northwood!

Here’s some fun behind the scenes action from Facebook – check it out!

At this point we headed outside to Quarton Lake in Birmingham…

Kiana Nirvana

Beautiful!!!

Kiana Nirvana

We have more behind the scenes from the location too – this time from when we went live on Instagram:

And we’ll leave you with one more image:

Kiana Nirvana

The dress, the bridge, the girl – just a gorgeous photo!

And there you have it – Kiana Nirvana indeed!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Camryn Was In Command On Her Senior Picture Session!

Camryn was definitely in command on this very first senior session of the Class of 2020 season!  But let’s back up a sec… 

Camryn’s mom Rochelle has been my Facebook friend for a couple of years but we had never met in person!  We met through mutual connections and I did not realize her daughter was an upcoming senior at our alma mater – North Farmington!  So when she reached out to discuss senior pictures we were excited!  When you are as active as we are on Facebook sometimes you can make a connection online that becomes a connection offline!  I knew we would like Rochelle and by extension it was no shock that we liked Camryn!  Camryn is adorable and smart and nice, and she wants to be a pediatrician!  She’s got it together, and yes she was in command on her senior session!

Camryn In Command

We started in the studio and focused mainly on the red fabric backdrop and the black.  Starting with the black:

CamrynWow!  Okay she looks amazing, and now would be a good time to give a shout out to her makeup artist Tina Jones who did a fantastic job on Camryn!

We also have some fun behind the scenes first from the studio on Facebook:

Next we switched to the fiery red fabric backdrop for this full length photo:

Camryn

Camryn is so photogenic and so comfortable in front of the camera!  A delight for Ally to work with!

At this point it was time to head out on location.  It was brutally hot out – over 95 degrees but we were not going to be deterred!  Not to mention there were supposed to be thunderstorms but those held off as well as we were glued to the hourly forecast for the previous 24 hours and watched it shift thankfully in our favor!

We headed to Quarton Lake and got this gorgeous image:

Camryn

And of course we have a little more behind the scenes fun from the Instagram Live – the replay resides on our YouTube channel (make sure you’re subscribed)!

We’ll leave you with one more full length photo of our girl:

Camryn

What a great session!!!  Camryn was in command indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

The Third Time Was A Charm With Ian For His Senior Pictures!

Ian is the man – he’s definitely one of the last if not THE last senior for the class of 2019 for us and he took the fact that he got rained out twice totally in stride.  What a great kid.  We really enjoyed our day with him and the wait was worth it – we had a perfect day for the third try even while the forecast was threatening to ruin it again!

Third Time’s The Charm With Ian

We started in the studio for a bit before we headed out and worked with the grey backdrop:

Ian

What a stud!  Love the look.

One more up close with just the collared shirt:

Ian

We also grabbed a few cap and gown photos and here’s a little behind the scenes of that from Facebook Live:

At this point we headed outside to Birmingham to get some location photos on a beautiful day!

Ian

We love the shades – we think more seniors should use them just like this!

We also have some more fun behind the scenes from Birmingham from when we went live on Instagram!


 

And we’ll leave you with this last one up close:

Ian

Good times, great smile!
 
And there you have it – the third time was a charm with Ian indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Bensson and Magdalena Have A Fantastic Crew Full Of Cuteness!

Okay this is a fantastic crew.  Bensson just popped in one day and said he wants to get some family photos and we are so glad he did!  His in-laws were in town so we were able to get the kids but with three total generations which is always really special.  Everyone looked great and did a fantastic job and the kids were SO CUTE!  Let’s get to the pics:

Fantastic Crew…

In a session like this you generally start with the most important photo because you never quite know exactly how long the little ones might last, so we started with the entire group and we used our blue / grey mottled backdrop:

Fantastic Crew

Beautiful family!

Next we just did the unit of 6…

Fantastic Crew

We also have a little bit of behind the scenes fun from Snapchat…

And now let’s highlight each of the kids!  First the dudes….

Fantastic Crew

How awesome is he with the bowtie?

Fantastic Crew

Dapper dude…

Now the girls!

Fantastic Crew

Pretty princess!

And last but not least…

Josh Makes A Triumphant Return To The Studio For Senior Pics!

Josh made his triumphant return to the studio!!!  We love this dude – he and our Tony are the best of buddies and we’re going to miss him seeing him as often when he heads off to Western Michigan to be a Bronco!  In the meantime after representing our studio as a spokesmodel for the class of 2019 he came back in with his mom Amy to get a few more studio pics so let’s get to a few highlights!

Triumpant Return…!

Gotta love the ivy cap he started off with – it belonged to his grandpa – SO COOL.

Triumphant Return

We also have some hilarious behind the scenes action first from Facebook Live!

Next we changed it up with a couple different looks on the white background – first with the full length chillin’ on the stool:

Triumphant Return

Josh changed shirts one more time for these next couple:

Triumphant Return

Jayden and Jaxon Are Back, Getting Big, and They Are Total Characters!

Jayden and Jaxon are total characters and they came back to the studio for some pics with their mommy Marla!  It had been a while since they had been here so we were excited to have them back and boy are they growing up! 

Total Characters!

We kept this session pretty simple with white shirts and jeans on these dudes with the white backdrop and we’ll start with a little brotherly love!

Total Characters

We also had some fun with some behind the scenes first on Facebook Live:

Now let’s give each of these guys their own turn in the spotlight:

First big brother Jayden:

Total Characters

Latoiya Looks Lovely In Boudoir Photos Featured On Fox 2 Detroit!

By now if you follow us on social media or subscribe to our newsletter there’s a pretty good chance you have caught the feature on Fox 2 Detroit that they did on us and boudoir photography.  We have posted photos from the other two sessions highlighted in that piece here on the blog, and here is the third!  Latoiya did a fantastic job in her interview and she looks lovely indeed in these photos!  Boudoir photos are often done on location for privacy, but we did some in the studio for this feature and as you’ll see below the crew from Fox 2 was actually here while we photographed one.  As a side note they ran this feature three times – the first time they misspelled Latoiya’s name which you’ll see here, but they actually corrected it when they ran it the next two times!  Here is the feature before we get to the photos:

Latoiya Looks Lovely…

Meanwhile Latoiya mentioned in the piece about wondering if you’ve “lost it” after you’ve had kids and how boudoir can give you the confidence that you haven’t lost it at all – which she most certainly has not!!!  She looks fabulous!

Latoiya Looks Lovely

Beautiful!

Here’s a few more:

Latoiya Looks Lovely

Latoiya Looks Lovely

Latoiya Looks Lovely

Latoiya looks lovely indeed – boudoir is fun, sexy and empowering!  We love what Latoiya said at the end that “hopefully all women can see that it’s nothing to be ashamed of or looked down upon – that it’s to build us up!”

A Fun And Casual Day For Senior Pictures With Elle!

Elle continues the exciting run on high school athletes that we’ve had here at the studio – she’s going to play hockey at Yale which she comes by honestly since the whole family including dad played hockey – okay maybe with the exception of mom Nicole who was a tennis player!  An athletic family to be sure!  Meanwhile Elle is bright and fun too and we had a blast with her, Nicole and her sister Sasha who joined us!
 

Fun With Elle…

 
We did this all on location in Birmingham and we had a great day for it!  Elle started out in this cute dress:
 
Elle
Love it!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes action and I have to say this is literally one of my all time fave senior livestreams just because of the burst of laughter from Sasha when I start out with my “Yo Yo Yo Instafam!”  Haha!
 

Now for a few more pics:
 
Elle
Just being fun and playful with the Yale gear on!
 
Elle
We have a little more behind the scenes fun as well this time from Facebook Live playing around with Elle’s USA Hockey gear:

And we’ll leave you with this one as Elle says “Peace Out!”
 
Elle
And there you have it!  Fun times with Elle!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!
