Starting To Think That All Ali / Ally / Aly’s Are Adorable – We LOVE This Ali!

Ali and Ally as it turns out seem to be kindred spirits, and we both fell in love with this adorable Ali – seems it’s an Ali / Ally thing and you might not understand.  Although it’s easy to explain when you meet someone who is smart, funny, and bursting with personality like this Ali whom we photographed in Detroit for senior pictures!  Her mom Amy joined us for this wonderful day downtown and we even wrapped it up with some yummy eats at Laika Dog!  But it’s the pictures we’re here for, so let’s get to the highlights!

We LOVE This Ali

Ali

That smile!!!!

Ali

Okay…. so she’s ADORABLE, and that backlight with the flowers?  A hall of fame pic.  We have some behind the scenes too first from Instagram:

She just makes us grin from ear to ear.

From there we headed to Belle Isle and the sun was setting… check this out:

Ali

Pretty cool…

From there we finished up at Eastern Market and we have some more behind the scenes this time from Facebook:

…and here’s the result with some more off-camera flash:

Ali

LOVE!  Yassss it’s something about those Ally / Aly / Ali’s right?  Our Ally loved photographing this Ali and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her in Detroit!

Telling The Tale Of The Taking Of Toby’s Senior Pictures!

Telling the tale of the taking of Toby’s senior pictures won’t be hard – there’s plenty to talk about.  Now granted, this was our first time really hanging out with Toby, but he’s a double legacy – the third sibling to be a Frameable senior here after sister Kylie and brother Jack!  So we get to hang out with mom Kelly once again (we end up talking a lot of music) which we love!  As for Toby, he’s a good kid – just mellow and unassuming – quite enjoyable we must say, and we had a great day for his senior session so let’s get to the highlights!

Telling The Tale Of Toby’s Pics

We started out in the studio where we had to get the yearbook headshot, but often the guys go full suit and tie for a couple formal pics beyond just the headshot which we always think is a great look!

Telling The Tale

Dapper dude – and Ally is a big fan of the pink tie…

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

At this point it was time to head over to Birmingham to get some photos on location!

Telling The Tale

Looking good Toby!

Digging the hoodies…

We also have a little more behind the scenes from our day on Instagram:

Wrapping Up The Class Of 2022 Spokesmodel Sessions With Maya!

We’ve had a wonderful time photographing our newest crew of spokesmodels – the class of 2022!  And Maya is a great rising senior to finish with because she’s a NORTH FARMINGTON RAIDER!  You know we’re Raiders so we always have a soft spot for those who wear the brown and gold!  Ally has known Maya’s mom Melissa for years and we’re thrilled to have them on board!  We bounced around West Bloomfield to get some pics of Maya and here are a few highlights!

Wrapping Things Up With Maya

We started out at a fave spot of ours from the past that we hadn’t been to in a minute, and we found these pretty purple flowers to surround our girl:

Maya

LOVE IT!

We also have behind the scenes fun from the session first from Facebook:

One more from this spot with the barn in the background…

Maya

Gorgeous!

At this point we changed locations – our seniors can change outfits and locations multiple times during our 3 hour sessions.

Maya

And here’s one more on one of our local trails in the WB!

Maya

Here’s a little bonus fun at North Farmington – we will return there when Maya returns for her senior session, but we planned to go to Holland Field since she was just named to the Division 1 all-district team as the goalie and is currently the #1 ranked goalie in her league (she was actually a little sore from her last game on this session but you’d never know it), but there was a big event going on…. so we went to the front of the school to snap a few and here is the livestream from Instagram!

And there you have it!  A splendid way to wrap up the spokesmodel sessions – we are so thankful to have such a great crew of kids to represent our studio for the class of 2022!  Senior sessions will be coming your way soon on the blog and you should definitely book yours now!

Sammy Cooks Up Some Killer Pics For His Spokesmodel Session!

Obvi with that title amirite?  Yep – Sammy is a talented dude – he tore it up on Master Chef Junior a few years back and it’s pretty nice to have a great chef in the family – we know because he’s our nephew!  Obviously he’s been on our blog before like this post of the highlights of his bar mitzvah, and of course we are delighted to have him representing our studio for Berkley High School for the class of 2022 and this is one of those surreal sessions for us to see him as a rising high school senior!

Sammy Cooks Up Some Killer Pics

We went with Sammy to Detroit and of course his mom Stacy joined us – we went to Eastern Market where you can get all the ingredients you need!

Sammy Cooks

Plenty of great murals down there!

We also have some behind the scenes for you first from Facebook Live:

Let’s take a look at one more of the man on a mural… 

Sammy Cooks

At this point Sam’s future was getting so bright he had to wear shades.

From there we headed over to Belle Isle and as it turned out we were pretty limited because they were setting up for the Grand Prix, but when you’re forced to explore a little you find a new spot like this one – here’s the behind the scenes from Instagram this time:

Juju Part Two! Back To Detroit For Senior Pictures!

Giulianna is one of our peeps – a spokesmodel for the class of 2021 and we had a fabulous session with her in Detroit back in June, so we were pumped to have her back for another round for her senior pictures!  Yep – this is Juju part two – back to Detroit for more!!!  Once again her delightful mom Barb came with and we had a blast, so let’s get to some highights!

Mad About Maddie – Class of 2021 Version! Spokesmodel highlights!

This is the second year in a row we’ve had a spokesmodel named Maddie and we may have to just start recruiting Maddies as a strategy.  They seem to be pretty awesome as a category.  This Maddie is no exception – outgoing with a ton of personality and just a sweetheart!  We’ve photographed her cousins in the past so there is some connection there, her mom Stephanie is a delight, and we’re thrilled to have her representing the Farmington Hills Mercy Marlins for the class of 2021!
 

Mad About Maddie

 
We actually started out at Maddie’s house and we had a lovely day for pictures!
 
About Maddie
Gorgeous right?  Love the lake photos…
 
Here’s another one from the home front:
 
About Maddie
Okay she’s adorable.  Maddie is into theater so she definitely has that presence!
 
At this point it was time to head outside and hit one of our favorite locations by Orchard Lake, and we have some fun behind the scenes first from Facebook Live:
 

Back to a couple more pics – how about this close up at Orchard Lake?
 
About Maddie
Love that one!  And we have a little more behind the scenes too this time from Instagram TV!

A Livin’ The Dream With Alivia On An Awesome Senior Session!

Having opportunities to repeatedly photograph our faves makes for great days “on the job” so to speak.  It certainly doesn’t feel like work when you’ve got a sweetheart like Alivia back for another round with her delightful mom Rhonda!  Alivia is a spokesmodel for the class of 2020 representing Bloomfield Hills High School and her spokesmodel session rocked back in April, so we were excited for her senior session!
 

A Livin’ The Dream With Alivia…

We focused most of our energy on location starting with a lake backdrop…
 
A Livin
Gorgeous!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes action first from the livestream we did on Instagram!
 

And one of the results…

A Livin

At this point we did a little relocation for a few more scenes and the awesomeness continued – Alivia killed it!

A Livin
Here’s another behind the scenes vid this time from Facebook LIVE:
 

And we’ll leave you with one more with a little off camera flash – love this one…
 
A Livin
Fantastic.
 
And there you have it – you can see that we were a livin’ the dream on this day with Alivia and we hope you enjoyed the highlights from her session!

Izzy Is In The Hizzy With A Detroit Takeover Senior Session!

Izabela – aka Izzy to her friends – is in the hizzy, and on our blog!!!  What an adorable young lady, but we’re not surprised since we kinda watched her grow up and her parents are great people.  But this summer has been the first time we’ve really had the chance to hang out with her and we’ve loved every minute of it!  Her mom Nadica joined us for a wonderful day in Detroit – we laughed a lot and got some incredible photos, so let’s get to the highlights!
 

Izzy In The Hizzy

 
It was an afternoon session so we started first in the Eastern Market area, figuring our lighting for the Belle Isle photos would be better as the sun got a little lower in the sky for what we wanted.  We went to one of our favorite walls first:
 
Izzy
Okay how cute is she???  We also have some fun behind the scenes for you first from Facebook Live:
 

Next we hit up a spot that we’ve never used before – these painted cement barrel type things…. lol!  We LOVE this one:

Izzy

So cool!!!

In staying with the color texture theme we have this next one, where there is something about the wind blown look that we think is really appealing.  Just a moment captured where Izzy looks so beautiful.

Izzy

At this point we headed to Belle Isle and listen, these were really hard to choose to share for this post… We actually went to the graffiti bridge for some fun and we livestreamed there, but we’ve posted photos on the blog from there before and the last photo we’ll share is undeniable with the purple dress and purple flowers…  First the Instagram LIVE at the bridge:

…and then the purple to leave you with:
 
Izzy
WOW.
 
Okay so there it is – you can see why we were thrilled that Izzy was in the hizzy, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Emma Elevates The Senior Picture Game In Detroit!

We love Emma.  She is just a burst of personality and total adorable-ness, and on top of that she’s clearly my spirit animal – we totally bonded over American history and that’s pretty much what we talked about while her mom Tara and Ally sat and watched during her consultation.  We decided we’re going to go for coffee and talk about history one day lol!  To that end, Emma had a plan for her love of books to be a part of her senior session and she had scoped out the venerable John K King Bookstore in Detroit as an essential locale in our plan – she even contacted the store where they were more than accommodating in letting us photograph there!  This turned out to be the beginning of an EPIC day that ended up at our fave Chili Mustard Onions for dinner!  So let’s get to what happened at the bookstore and more highlights in between as Emma Elevates the senior picture game!

Emma Elevates

John K King is a massive bookstore of used books that you MUST visit if you haven’t before.  Here’s the behind the scenes Facebook LIVE broadcast where you can tell how giddy we were about photographing there!

And one of the results…

Emma Elevates

How beautiful!  Emma looks amazing and it’s just such a cool photo that really captures a big part of who she is.

From there we headed over to Belle Isle where Emma and Tara had another great prop in store….

Emma Elevates

How fun is the bicycle and the flowers in the basket?  The sky opened up right after this photo with a blast of rain as we scurried back to the car to wait it out.  We just lucked out on that… it didn’t last long and it left behind a gorgeous rainbow in the sky.

We headed over to the edge of the island to get a skyline photo of Detroit and this one with the off-camera flash is awesome – it’s just more of Emma elevating…

Emma Elevates

Last but not least we headed over to Eastern Market for the murals and there’s a funny fruit mural Emma likes a lot so we used that one.  Here’s the behind the scenes from Instagram LIVE (including a “Tara takeover” where Tara took over the broadcast)!

And here is the fun result!
 
Emma Elevates
Adorable!!!
 
And there you have it! Emma Elevates indeed – she slayed on this day!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Adin (and Detroit) Versus Everybody On An Awesome Senior Session!

Adin is a great dude and he has totally fit right in – we love hanging with this guy and we have been honored to have him representing our studio for the class of 2020 from Frankel Jewish Academy!  When we photographed him for his spokesmodel session back in May he was solo, but this time for our trip to Detroit he had his mom Nancy join us and she’s a lot of fun!  “Detroit Versus Everybody” is symbolic of how Detroit came back after many assumed the city was all but dead and now it’s thriving!  We celebrate that when seniors say they want to head downtown for photos and we had a great day down there with Adin and Nancy so let’s get to some highlights!

Adin Versus Everybody!

We headed first to Belle Isle where we got one of the Detroit skyline poses that we love…

Versus Everybody

So cool!

We spent quite a bit of time on Belle Isle where there is much to see, including one of our favorite bridges:

Versus Everybody

What a pic – Adin looks GREAT.

We also headed to a cool bridge that we’ve used a few times and we have some behind the scenes action – first on Facebook:

…and the result:

Versus Everybody

We hit a couple more spots as well including this one along the Riverwalk – here’s some more behind the scenes this time from Instagram:

From there we headed over to the Belt alley to get a couple more to wrap it up and here’s a cool one with a mural as a backdrop:

Versus Everybody

Love it!

What a cool day – Adin versus everybody ladies and gentlemen!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!
