Sibling Photos: A Dapper Dude and a Baby Blossom!

We have been really excited to get these sneak peeks up on the blog of “a dapper dude and a baby blossom”!  Such a precious session with these little siblings and they were a total pleasure to work with.  Very sweet and well behaved, they followed instructions like champs!

We started off by getting some photos of the two of them together on the white background.  Our dapper dude was styling with his sport coat and tie and his little sister was looking pretty in pink with the flower headband and flowery dress.  Flowers were definitely a strong theme for this session and if you have been a regular here on our blog you probably can guess where we are going with that….a dapper dude and a baby blossom

The white always looks great – nice and simple and can be displayed pretty much anywhere.  Next we moved to the black background and the kids changed up their look a little.  We love the red dress in particular against the black – it just pops and both brother and sister are beaming!  Big brother looks really proud and happy to be with his little sis!a dapper dude and a baby blossom

Next we gave our dapper dude a moment in the spotlight for himself…  That smile!

Here we have a fun little behind the scenes vine of the session which will give you a precious peek into the flowery fun that came next…

Needless to say we never get tired of the flower pot babies.  How could we?  These make us smile every time and the little ones always seem to have a lot of fun being in the pot while everyone is smiling laughing and cheering for them!  They are perfect for right around the 6 month milestone or slightly after as long as they are sitting up.a dapper dude and a baby blossom

All in all we had a really memorable time with our little friends and their mommy and grandma here at our studio!  We hope these made you smile too!

Jessica’s Sublime Siberian Senior Session!

Welcome to “Jessica’s Sublime Siberian Senior Session”!  If you are a regular here at the blog you might recognize these snowflakes from yesterday’s post…  We were able to get two great sessions in the snow on this particular day since it snowed for several hours.  In Jessica’s case it was so perfect because she was specifically holding out for a day just like this one, and as we said the conditions were positively Siberian, which was a good thing as you’ll see a little further down the page…

For now let’s start in the studio as we did with Jessica:

2623We did photograph Jessica against the black backdrop and we are really pleased with those results, but here we would like to show her off with the pretty color combos because they really pop off the screen – look at all the purples, violets, reds, and golds!  Jessica looks great – there was a lot to choose from this session and it was hard to pick…

Okay now let’s take a trip outside into the snow shall we?  We love the playfulness of this next shot!

Siberian Senior Session

Here’s where the session really takes a Siberian turn…  with Jessica’s Siberian Husky Diesel!!!  You know you have taken a lot of photos when you have photographed two different four legged Diesels – although they were not both pups – the other Diesel was a horse!  Meanwhile this Diesel was clearly at home in the snow and he was loving every minute of it.  Running around and playing in the snow with plenty to say too.  Love his coloring and we were able to get him to sit still just long enough to get this awesome shot with Jessica!  A girl and her pup!  Love it! Siberian Senior SessionWe hope you enjoyed these photos of Jessica’s Sublime Siberian Senior Session!  We certainly enjoyed our time with her (and Diesel)!!!

Leah – Senior Spokesmodeling In The Snow!

Since we photograph our senior spokesmodels from January to April we usually get a few spokesmodeling in the snow which is fine since there actually is a little demand for snow pictures every year.  This winter has been brutal and we have certainly been able to get all the snow shots we need already.  However no matter what the conditions are each year it is rare that a day lines up so perfectly where you can get nice big fluffy snowflakes fluttering gently down from the sky.  A day with no wind, not bitter cold – just right.  We had one of these days ordered up just for Leah!  But more on that later….

High School Spokesmodel

We started out in the studio so we could get some on the black background.  We used the black stool with the black once so far with this class but this look is a little different with Leah in black and crouching on the stool instead of sitting.  We are planning on using the black for every spokesmodel girl at least for a few shots even if we don’t end up showcasing them all because 1) we love the black and it is very popular, 2) it is a dramatic look and very versatile and 3) we may do something fun with all of these photos on the black when we’re done with the 2015 spokesmodels – we’ll see…  Meanwhile this next shot is a brand new look for us – a different take on being in the spotlight – literally!  We love the way this turned out.

High School Spokesmodel

We should also mention that hair and makeup for this session was done at The Beauty Lounge here in the Orchard Mall – hair by Tammy and makeup by Gloria.  They are right down the hall from our studio and The Beauty Lounge is one of three great salons here in the mall.  Next we broke out our cerulean blue backdrop and this next picture of Leah is just sweet and simple.

High School Senior Photo

At this point we were ready to go outside!

Here is a vine that will give you a little flavor of the studio portion of the session and then the winter wonderland we stepped into…

…now check this out!

spokesmodeling in the snow

We love the way Leah looks in the light dress against the white snow – white on white or black on black look great in the studio and the white on white looks great outside in the same way – it is an approach we have worked with in the past with great results, and it clearly worked again this time – spectacular!!!

Stunning Portraits Of Our Three Favorite Sisters!

We are thrilled to present some portraits of our three favorite sisters together!  You have seen these beautiful girls grace our pages before whether you have seen them here on the blog, on Facebook, our website or elsewhere.  It would not even be a big surprise that if you have been around our studio a lot you have met at least one of them before.  This is the first time we have had them in our studio together for a session and what a special session it was!

Portraits of Three Sisters

How gorgeous are they…?  We have become very close to these three and they are pretty much like family to us now.  While they were posing there were plenty of laughs, arguments, disputes, smiles, and overall a lot of love.  Sisters doing what sisters do right?  We photographed them against the red background quite a bit – we have been into the red lately and it really worked for them as you can see above.  Here is a behind-the-scenes vine of the session:

Ellery’s Entrance As Senior Picture Spokesmodel!

As we continue along preparing for an exciting year of senior pictures for the class of 2015 we present some highlights from Ellery’s spectacular in-studio spokesmodel session!  We are plain giddy about this year’s crew the way these sessions have been going so far and this one was no exception…

Senior pictures

The “black and blowy” pose never disappoints – Ellery’s blonde hair looks amazing against the black background!  Very dramatic and flat out stunning, you will see this set up repeated frequently in our posts because it is one of our signatures and every senior girl brings a little something different to it.  The weather on Ellery’s day was particularly nasty and we wanted some extra time to tinker in the studio and she was ready for that with two full sized suitcases (and an overflow bag) so we could try a bunch of different ideas indoors.  As much as we love them four sessions in the snow already is plenty.  We have one more coming up in our next post and that is likely it for the snow.

Okay so back to the photos!  Next up staying with the black background we have Ellery in a really cute hat!  Hats = GOOD!  Accessories in general are great and totally encouraged for senior sessions! High School Senior Pictures

Here is the behind-the-scenes vine of this series along with the next one – the “spotlight” set up…

Fox 2 Detroit Stops By For A Story On A Special Little Boy!

We have photographed quite a few children with special needs, and we have always found that special needs children make for very special photo sessions.  When Kam Carman from Fox 2 Detroit contacted us to do a story about photographing special needs children we arranged for a perfect little child for the story.  Conner is the cutest, most outgoing and lovable little boy you could ever meet.Fox 2 Detroit feature on photographing children with special needs

We approached this like any other session – we started with a consultation to meet Conner and his parents so we could get to know him ahead of the photo shoot and so he could get comfortable with us.  We fell in love with this kid right away.  Conner has cerebral palsy and speaks with a stutter but he certainly doesn’t let what most of us would consider challenges like those hold him back.  He’s a very engaging and fun 5 year old, and his little sister got into the act as well!Sibling PortraitChild Portrait

As for the day of the shoot, it was very exciting.  We had been mentioned on “Kam’s Corner” once before in a feature on the Orchard Mall so we’ve gotten to know her a little and we are big fans of “The Nine” morning show on Fox 2 Detroit.  Kam arrived with her videographer and they captured some footage of Ally photographing Conner which was really neat.  Conner was excited – he told his friends all about how he was going to be on TV and he got to leave school a little early.  When he arrived he practically knocked Ally over running to her and giving her a huge hug!  Conner had a blast and he especially loved pushing the button to flash the lights which you can see in the feature.  Then Kam interviewed Conner’s mom and Ally to wrap it up.  Click HERE to watch the feature from the broadcast!

So fun!  Here is a little behind-the-scenes vine of Ally’s interview:

Lastly, let’s get back to Conner – here are a couple other yummy photos of this awesome dude…  Enjoy!Fox 2 Detroit feature on photographing kids with special needsChild Portrait

Twin High School Spokesmodels Claire And Ethan!

We have photographed several pairs of twins for high school senior pictures and every single time it has been memorable!  This is the first time we have had twins representing our studio as spokesmodels and we are so pleased to have Ethan and Claire on board.  What a couple of outstanding kids.  A twin session obviously takes longer than an individual, but it didn’t really feel like it – time flies when you are having fun!High School Senior Pictures

Their spokesmodel shoot had a little of everything including Maggie – their pup!  She was a well behaved doggy and she was ready for her closeup as you can see.High School Senior Pictures

As you will see in this fun vine below from the session we got a chuckle out of the fact that the standard dog emoji on the iPhone actually looks like Maggie too…

Capturing Family Portraits Before The Next Chapter!

If it is known that an upcoming moment is going to be a potentially rare moment then it is the perfect reason to do family portraits.  A milestone birthday or anniversary celebration, a holiday where out-of-town family members will be traveling here for a visit for example are strong reasons to get everyone together for a professional photo session.  This session was special for this family because the oldest is now studying abroad and they wanted to get some family photos before he left the country since it is going to be a little while until they are all together again.

First we started with just a photo of the proud parents which really looks fantastic in black and white…

Family Portraits

Next we brought the whole family into the picture.  Shimmy is the oldest and we photographed him for his high school senior pictures – what a great kid – we really enjoyed our time with him and we were happy to have the chance to wish him well in his travels and studies (that is him below on the far left).  We were also excited to have the whole family here and have the chance to meet the other siblings!

Here is the fun behind-the-scenes vine from the session!

Ally’s Niece Gets Her Turn In The Spotlight!

Hi it’s Ally here!  It’s pretty rare that I write blog posts – I usually let Doug do that because I think he just does it better.  But this time, I had to take his job over.  Just for a bit…..

Child Portrait
See, this is my niece.  She is three and I affectionately call her my “demon baby.”  I don’t call her a demon because she is BAD per se, but because from the moment she was born, she has just been very strong willed and opinionated.  She just plain cracks me up.  Remember that poem, “There once was a little girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead.”  Well, that’s my demon baby.  When she is good, she is very good (and crazy sweet!)  But when she is bad, she is horrid!!!  But she is the kind of “horrid” that makes you laugh!  She is so funny!!!
882
This was just a mini impromptu photo session with her and I think she did pretty well!  Except that we did get into a little fight.  I wanted her to wear the pretty blue sparkly hat with the pink flower.  Or even the silver hat!  But NOOOO….she wanted to wear the simple beige hat.  I guess sometimes you just need to pick your battles.  And heaven forbid we put down the sucker for a minute!!!!  At least she is cute!!!!!
895
And who knows!?  We have photos of her big brothers in the studio.  Maybe it is time for the demon baby to make her public Frameable Faces debut too on our wall somewhere!  It will be so hard for me to pick a favorite though.  There are just too many yummy delicious images to choose from!  So, Frameables, meet my most favorite, prettiest and sweetest “demon.”  Enjoy her deliciousness!!!!!

Kicking Off Our ’15 Spokesmodel Sessions With Eden!

We are so excited to present a few images from our first high school spokesmodel session of the class of 2015!  Every year we have a handful of students from the local high schools who represent our studio, and here is a flashback link to a video from the spokesmodel sessions of the current seniors of the class of 2014!  We have enjoyed the time we have spent with them and we love following their senior campaigns!

Kicking Off The New Class

So coming back to the present and now the future, this year’s team is shaping up to be another very special one.  Let’s kick it off this year much in the same fashion as we did last year – with a North Farmington Raider – Eden!  We started with the black background which is always one of our favorites…

High School Senior Pictures

We recently added a new backdrop and we wanted to experiment with it a little, so we moved to that one next.  You will likely see this one a few times over the next few weeks as we play a little with different clothing combinations and different seniors.  We like this one with the Earth tones – Eden wearing different browns against the mustard and the pops of blue.  She looks beautiful!

High School Senior Pictures

As a side note we took a little vine video of the shoot as well and we usually include them in these posts, but at the moment there is a glitch with twitter / vine where they aren’t working at the moment so for now we’ll have to settle for providing you with this link.  When it’s fixed we’ll update it…

UPDATE – new version of WordPress released today (1/24/14) so here is the vine!

Meanwhile this winter is proving to be brutal – bitter cold and tons of snow, so we anticipate more spokesmodel images like these next two photos over the next couple months if it keeps going like this.  The flip side of the cold and snow is that it makes for beautiful pictures!  We love these two of Eden!  So pretty!

High School Senior PicturesHigh School Senior Pictures

This was clearly a great start to the class of 2015 and we are in for an amazing year!  We can’t wait.
