Zinging Around The Woods With Zach For His Senior Session!

Zinging around the woods with Zach on an unseasonably warm late fall day is our idea of a good time!  Zach is a fun dude – he’s a buddy of our son Tony too so he passes the test for full approval – haha…  We are also actually distant cousins with Zach so we’ve known his mom Liz forever too so we knew this would be a fun day. 

Zinging around the woods with Zach

We headed over to the woods behind the West Bloomfield library and found a pathway that we had never taken before, and wow what a cool spot!  The forest floor was coated with fall leaves and we got some great stuff, so let’s get to it shall we?

Zach chilling among the tall trees!

We also have some fun behind the scenes action as we usually do.  Snapchat is being weird but we have our Facebook Live broadcast which is a lot of fun!  Take a look:

And now let’s get to the rest of the highlighted photos:

Just relaxing on a log – we were having a pretty chill time.

And we’ll leave you with one more!

Good stuff – Zach looking good up close and personal!

And there you have it – we zinged around the woods with Zach and got some fantastic shots!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Photographing Jordyn On Her Senior Session Had Us Jumping For Joy!

Photographing Jordyn was a pure delight – you might even say being with Jordyn had us jumping for joy!  Well maybe not literally jumping but certainly figuratively because she is just such a sweetie and a pleasure to be around!  Her mom Rebecca joined us on a fine fall Michigan day and she’s a lot of fun too!  The results speak for themselves so let’s take a look:

Photographing Jordyn…

We started out in the studio on the white backdrop and we love Jordyn in the powder blue with the white chair!  Great one to start with…
 
Photographing JordynNext we moved to the black backdrop and we fired up the Facebook Live for some behind the scenes fun!  Take a look:
 

And here’s a shot on the black in a new outfit!

Photographing Jordyn

Love that!!!

At this point it was time to get outside on location and we made a stop over behind the West Bloomfield Library for a little pop of fall!  Photographing JordynShe looks so pretty!

At this point we headed over to our last stop over at Orchard Lake where we fired up the YouTube Live this time for a little more behind the scenes fun!  Take a look!

And we’ll leave you with one more photo of Jordyn chillin’ out on the dock:

And there you have it!  Photographing Jordyn had us jumping for joy and now you know why!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Lots Of Fun And Laughter On Lexi’s Lively Fall Senior Session!

Lexi had a lively fall senior session indeed – there was lots of fun and laughter because she’s just so funny!  She’s gorgeous, smart, nice and all that but she definitely made us laugh a lot.  You’ll see how much fun she is in the behind the scenes videos below.  Meanwhile she’s a legacy here since we photographed her older sister Helene several years back (before we were writing blog posts for each senior) and we were happy to have her parents Robyn & David back to the studio!

Lexi’s Lively Fall Senior Session!

Like her sister, Lexi waited until we had the pretty Pure Michigan fall colors and since we scheduled a morning session we went out on location to do those first – we’ll pick up the action there:

Lively Fall Senior

How amazing is that shot….?  She looks awesome surrounded by all the Pure Michigan fall leaves!

We also love this close up with the brick:

Lively Fall Senior

At this point we went over to nearby woods behind the West Bloomfield library and here is the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast behind the scenes – it would actually be great to have Lexi back to the studio to co-host some other livestreams – she’s hilarious!

….and here is the result:

Lively Fall Senior

Fantastic!

At this point we headed back to the studio for some photos where we went live again this time for some fun on YouTube:

…and one more from that red paper backdrop:

Lively Fall Senior

Gorgeous!

And there you have it!  A lively fall senior session with Lexi indeed – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

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!

Leah Returns With Plenty Of Looks And Laughs!

For this post we are pleased to present photos from one of our class of 2015 seniors who has been featured on our blog before as a spokesmodel.  We’ve had a great time with Leah and one of the reasons is she “gets” it when it comes to our studio.  She has from the first minute she started bopping in here to hang out with us a couple years ago, and she’s been known to just be here hanging out on any given day, even helping us by adding her two cents in client meetings about our approach and her experiences with us.  She is always flowing with ideas, and she’s also been known to crack up at the drop of a dime.  So when Leah returns for a photo session of her own we know there will be plenty of looks and plenty of laughs!

We already knew Leah would rock her session because she killed it on her spokesmodel shoot in a snowstorm which was one of our more memorable days.  This time around she wanted to wait for the fall colors, but before we head out on location let’s start with a studio photo:

Leah Returns

Leah had been talking about the red couch for a while so we spent some time on that set up – even getting her dogs into the mix, but here we focused on this close crop of just her.  Beautiful!  We would also like to give a little shout out to Shifra Raskin down the hall from our studio for such a great job on Leah’s makeup!

Now let’s get to the location photos…  first we started with the fountain in Birmingham which makes for a very pretty backdrop with a wall of white water…

Leah Returns

Here is our hilarious behind the scenes vine where the various “wildlife” had their say…  You can see a glimpse of the laughs I referred to earlier…

Now let’s focus on the nature shots.  First with a close up and some green…

Leah Returns

And last but not least the beautiful fall colors!

Leah Returns

So pretty!!!  Leah delivered again as we knew she would, and we hope you enjoyed these photos, looks and laughs from her session!
