We still have some seniors to photograph but we’ll call this one with Seth the last one of the fall season in Detroit and it’s a STELLAR one to end on! Granted it was a cold windy day, but it was dry and we were able to get fantastic results. Seth is very go with the flow and he was a trooper with the weather! He’s got a good head on his shoulders and we had a great day with him and his mom Bridget!
We started in the studio with a few quick formal photos on the grey – here’s one:
Then it was time to head downtown and we started on Belle Isle – here’s one with the skyline in the distance!
Next we found a bridge that we’ve never used before – it’s SO cool and it will henceforth be known as Seth’s bridge because that’s how we roll! Here’s the behind the scenes on that from Instagram:
And one of the results…
Love that shot!!!
We also headed over to Eastern Market to grab some pics with the murals and here’s the behind the scenes from that on Facebook LIVE:
And we’ll leave you with this one:
And there you have it! A stellar session with Seth in the D and we hope you enjoyed the highlights! A great one to end on…….for now!
Photographing kids can be so much fun, and when three siblings come to the studio who are so fun, smart and well behaved like these three? Well that just makes it even better. Definitely three of the cutest sibs we’ve had at the studio, so let’s take a look!
We’ll start with the three of them together…
And then we’ll give each one of them their own turn in the spotlight! First big sis:
LOVE THE BERET!!!
Next the big man:
And now baby sis!!!
We LOVED our time with these three – they were a delight! We hope you enjoyed these portraits!
We got marvelous with Marlee because she IS. She’s a legacy twice over here at Frameable Faces with both of her big bros coming here for their senior pics and we are big fans of the fam! Meanwhile Marlee is adorable, smart and snarky so she fits in pretty well here! Marlee’s mom Gayle joined us for a fine day here at the studio and on location in the WB for some, well, MAHHHVELOUS pics with Marlee!!!
We started on location for this one with Orchard Lake in the background…
Also you know how we roll – here’s the fun behind the scenes from the above photo from Facebook LIVE:
We hit a couple more spots around town including this meadow, and while we’re at it we need to shout out Farah at Mandy Rose Studio for hair and makeup – she did a great job with Marlee!
And one more outside, and you can see a little of that Fall color coming in as we get up close with our girl…
At this point we headed back to the studio for a little glam on the black, and we have some more behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram:
And the MARVELOUS result:
A stunner to finish with!
We were getting marvelous with Marlee indeed – the end of an era with these guys and maybe they saved the best for last (?). LOL – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!
Ashley and Dana are stunning sibs indeed and they are roommates too! We photographed them at home in their first house recently and we had so much fun with them – new friends! They are delightful and we had a lot of laughs. They included their kitty Chris in a couple of the pics and we did a little casual as well as a little formal – excited to show these off!
We started off with the casual in the living room with Chris!
They are adorable! Oh and Chris says meow.
One more playful one in the living room:
One more casual by the front door…
At this point the girls changed into something a little more formal and we have some fun behind the scenes from Facebook LIVE:
Fun right? And here’s one of the STUNNING results!
Just beautiful girls….
And there you have it – stunning sibs indeed! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with them!
We have known Sedona since she was a baby and this is at least the third time she’s been on our blog! She’s beautiful, smart, funny, snarky, and we are smitten with her senior session!!! She was a spokesmodel for us this year for Walled Lake Northern and we were excited to get her in front of Ally’s camera once again! Her mom Rachel who is one of our dear friends joined us for a fun day in Detroit, so let’s get to some highlights!
We actually spent the entire session on Belle Isle which has so many amazing spots to photograph, and this was the first time we headed to Sunset Point for this awesome shot of Sedona against the Detroit skyline!
We also have some fun behind the scenes first from Facebook LIVE:
Next we headed over to the red bridge for this stunner…
Moving around the island we stopped in at the conservatory and here’s a little video from Instagram…
And at that point we headed over to the covered bridge for a few:
We love that spot, but this next one was almost an afterthought – one of those “hang on – go stand by that tree” photos that we hadn’t planned on. It turned out to be the last photo of the day and it’s outstanding…
Do you see? Do you see why we’re smitten with Sedona’s session? We’re just smitten with Sedona period – love this girl, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!
Enter Elijah – a class of 2020 Bloomfield Hills Blackhawk and the subject of this outstanding senior picture session! Elijah is a sharp young man and we had a lot of fun on his session with him and his mom Amy! We connected with them right away and we have so many mutuals with Amy it’s a surprise we didn’t know each other before, but here we are – better late than never! We had a great day and let’s get to a few highlights!
We started in the studio for a nice formal series on the black background – here’s one:
We also have some behind the scenes fun from the day – first on Instagram:
At this point we headed to Birmingham and we had great conditions:
Love that one – and we even have a feathered friend in the background lol…
Here’s another one from Quarton Lake:
We also went into downtown Birmingham for a couple city looks – here’s the behind the scenes from Facebook:
And we’ll leave you with this one with the lamp post:
So cool! A little haze, a little pop of fall color in the background – great one to end on!
A killer session indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with Elijah!
Happily Hannah – that’s what this next senior seems to be if you ask us! She’s adorable and just chill – a nice girl and even though her mom Lisa and aunt Bridget are both Westland John Glenn alums she turned out great! Haha…. let me explain – Ally and I went to North Farmington and back in the day John Glenn was our big rival so we had a lot of fun with that, but Hannah is a West Bloomfield Laker right up the road and she is a delight. We had a nice fall day for her session, and her aunt Bridget had Hannah looking fantastic with hair and makeup so let’s get to the highlights:
We started in the studio with the black backdrop and Hannah brought her kitty Boots!!! We love that! Here’s one of the two of them together…
Okay how cute are they?
We also have some fun behind the scenes from the studio first on Facebook Live:
And how about one more “black and blowy” picture from the studio…
She is so pretty!
At this point we headed out on location to Birmingham and we had great conditions…
Ahhh that backlight!
We have more behind the scenes fun too this time from when we headed into downtown Birmingham to get a few urban looks, this time from Instagram:
…and one of the results in black and white:
Just a classic photo – a great one to end on! She’s happily Hannah and we happily have her on our blog now! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!
In yesterday’s post Twinning and Winning – Part 1 – And We Ain’t Lyin’ About Ryann! we went all Ladies First with Ryann’s highlights with a twin pic of Ryann and Shane together mixed in. Today we reverse it and get on the Shane Train!!! Shane is a good dude and he was a trooper on these two days in Detroit taking all these pics with his sis! We had a great time with these two and here are more of the highlights!
We’ll start with one of our favorite mosaic murals in Eastern Market:
Here’s one from Belle Isle with a pretty cool composition – an angle we hadn’t used before:
We posted a photo from the cool ivy wall we found in Detroit yesterday of Ryann, and here’s some behind the scenes of that spot from Facebook Live:
And a result with Shane:
Pretty cool huh?
We grabbed this black and white on the Wayne State campus – big fans of how this one turned out:
Our last spot was by a very cool sculpture – also a somewhat random find… and here’s the behind the scenes from Instagram:
And we’ll leave you with one of those of the twins together!
You can see why we weren’t lyin’ about Ryann yesterday and why we are on the Shane Train today!!! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with these two!!!
What an epic senior session(s) odyssey we embarked on with twins Ryann and Shane!!! In this post we’ll go ladies first – we love this girl and we ain’t lyin….about Ryann!!! What a sweetheart and the two of them are pretty hilarious together we have to say. Definitely a twin bond that you can feel. We’re going to focus on some individual photos of Ryann here and some individuals of Shane tomorrow but with one together in each post. These two are legacies too since we photographed older brother Ian from the class of 2019!
We went to Detroit with these two – twice! The plan with their parents Faith and John was to make sure we had plenty of opportunities to get as many pics as we needed in as many spots as necessary with some of them individually and some together. We all felt that we didn’t want to be rushed, and this allowed us to break it up without going on a marathon day long shoot. So you’ll see some photos mixed in here from both days!
Here’s a little behind the scenes to give you a taste of the first day in Eastern Market before we get to a few higlights from Facebook Live:
Now some highlights of Ryann’s pics!
Just stunning!!! We had a decent amount of wind at that point but it works to nice effect on Ryann’s hair above! Lots of color in and around Eastern Market as well and Ryann Rocked it. Here’s another one…
Love the black on the black wall…
Here’s one from day two on a random ivy covered wall I just spotted as we were driving by…
Love it. That wall won’t be so random for us anymore!
And one more in this outfit on the Wayne State Campus which is really nice…
Now let’s bring Shane into the picture (pun intended) for this fun twin pic:
Awesome!!! Twinning and winning indeed and you can see we weren’t lyin’ about Ryann! We had so much fun with these two and we hope you enjoyed part 1 of the highlights! Part two is the next post!
