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!

Juju Part Two!

Yes this photo is in downtown Detroit!  And it’s awesome:

Juju Part Two

Gorgeous – love the little footbridge and we have some behind the scenes fun from this one on Facebook:

Here’s another one with some beautiful flowers as a backdrop!

Juju Part Two

Okay – just stunning!!!!  And this is a good spot to shout out Mary Qarana (a former Frameable Faces senior herself) for Juju’s makeup – just a brilliant job!

We headed over to Eastern Market for some murals too…

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!

Ava Ahead Of Her Time On An Unequaled Senior Session!

This post features Ava ahead of her time – there’s no doubt she is.  She suggested an idea we had never done before on a whim and it turned out to be one of the coolest ideas we’ve done with unique results that we’ll definitely return to with other seniors!  We’ll save those for last.  Ava is a spokesmodel for us representing the Bloomfield Hills Blackhawks for the class of 2020, and privately Ally was worried about trying to top her spokesmodel session this time since the Detroit session in April was SO great.  Well…..we think we may have done it.

Ava Ahead Of Her Time

The plan this time was to head to Karner Blue Stables where Ava’s horse Oscar stays – what a beauty he is, and the spots for photos were aplenty.  Ava’s mom Stacie whom we’ve known since high school was there to join us and we had much fun as we always do now with them.  We started with just a few natural pics and we’ll also give a shout out to Adria at The Beauty Lounge for the great job on Ava’s hair!

Ava Ahead

Gorgeous.

Next it was time to meet OSCAR!!!  He was very chill – here’s the behind the scenes from Facebook LIVE as we got set up for some of those shots!

And here’s our girl with her guy!!!

Ava Ahead

STUNNING.  LIKE…..STUNNING.

Here’s a little more of the behind the scenes fun as we switched up some outfits and explored the grounds this time from Instagram LIVE:

So another thing we love about Ava is her “rocker chick” vibe when she breaks out Doors or Stones gear like she did this day… combine that with a nearby horse trailer and you’ve got super cool…

Ava Ahead

Now for the coup de grace!  Ally shooting up towards the sky, a little off-camera flash with Ava leaning over her…. and, well – look:

Ava Ahead

There are a couple of these we just simply couldn’t choose between for the blog so here’s one more…

Ava Ahead

WOW.  We are SO in love with these!

So now you know.  Ava is ahead of her time indeed – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Eliza Supplies A Whole Bunch Of Adorable On Her Senior Session!

The title of this post makes us smile as does this senior!  Eliza supplies a whole bunch of adorable and fun too!  Any senior who brings a bunch of balloons to her session has the right attitude in our book!  This also wasn’t the first time Eliza had been in front of Ally’s camera since she joined us for older sis Anabel’s senior sesh a few years ago and time has definitely flown!  Anabel actually met us on site for a few pics to return the favor this time around and overall we had another great day with them and their delightful mom Cindy!
 

Eliza Supplies-A!

We started in the studio and Eliza is a fan of the color purple so we started with the purple backdrop and the black couch – a pretty cool combo!
 
Eliza supplies
So cute – and the dress works great with a bit of black and purple in it!
 
We have some fun behind the scenes from this part of the session first on the replay from Facebook Live:
 

At this point we headed out on location in Birmingham where we wanted to get some natural pics and some city textures, and we had a perfect day:
 
Eliza supplies
Adorable!
 
The balloons could have used a little more helium (which we all had some good laughs about) but that didn’t stop us – we still got our photo!
 
Eliza supplies
 

Next we headed to downtown Birmingham where we have some more behind the scenes from the Instagram LIVE:

And we’ll leave you with this cute one of Eliza with a bandana in her hair on the brick – love this!
 
Eliza supplies
As you can see, Eliza supplies a whole lot of adorable…
 
And there you have it!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Rachel Represents Raiders In Style On Her Senior Picture Session!

Rachel is a Raider – a North Farmington Raider like us, so Rachel Represents Raiders seemed to just write itself.  But – it’s about more than that, because she embodies what we would hope a senior would represent from our alma mater!  She is adorable – outgoing, smart and sweet – a talented dancer to boot and we had a blast with her and her mom Susan on her senior session!
 

Rachel Represents Raiders

With Rachel we had a solid plan of both studio and location work and we’ll start indoors on the white backdrop:
 
Rachel Represents Raiders
LOVE!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes from Facebook Live when we were doing the black and blowy setup:
 

And one more from the studio on the metal!

Rachel Represents Raiders

So cool – every time we use the metal we think “we should use the metal more”!

At this point we headed to Birmingham where we had a perfect day!

Rachel Represents Raiders

Definitely one of our faves from the session…

We also have more behind the scenes including the “Susan Takeover” when Rachel’s mom guest hosted the livestream on Instagram!  She killed it!!!  Take a look:

And we’ll leave you with this last one:
Rachel Represents Raiders
Adorable!
 
And there you have it!  Rachel represented Raiders in style indeed – we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Sydney In The City! An Awesome Detroit Senior Session!

Sydney slayed in the city!  What a fabulous senior session in Detroit and the whole fam joined us down there – we had a lot of fun!  Her parents and her little sis – David, Risa and Gabrielle are a riot!  Sydney is a beautiful North Farmington Raider senior – inside and out from the class of 2020 and we are thrilled to present a few sneak peeks from our day with her!

Sydney In The City!

We started on Belle Isle in the morning and we had great weather conditions – let’s start at the fountain:

Sydney

Such a cool pic and Sydney looks gorgeous!

We also played around with the skyline shot down by the Detroit River and here’s a little behind the scenes fun with the fam from Facebook Live:

And here are a couple other spots we love like the red bridge:

Sydney

And the covered bridge…

We headed over to Eastern Market and then for a bite at Green Dot Stables before we headed back to the studio!  Here’s a little more behind the scenes fun we had over by Eastern Market this time from Instagram Live:
