And one more from on location:
And one more from the studio on the metal!
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!
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:
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!
We started on Belle Isle in the morning and we had great weather conditions – let’s start at the fountain:
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:
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:
Highly awesome – yes indeed. A fitting description of this fab senior session with our latest senior Holly – a session that makes us wanna holla! Holly is a West Bloomfield Laker, a soccer player and an all around great girl – we really enjoyed her and her mom Nicole’s company for the perfect day we spent in Birmingham!
We focused this entire session on location in Birmingham and we couldn’t have asked for better weather!
We have some fun behind the scenes as we like to do as well – first from our live stream on Instagram:
Here’s one in a tree that we’ve used that we seem to be perfectly able to fit a senior in! Haha!
We also have more behind the scenes fun from Facebook:
And here is one with that outfit!
Holly looked amazing and the lush summer flowers and colors make for great sessions at Quarton Lake!
We’ll leave you with one more:
And there you have it! Now you see why Holly’s highly awesome session makes us wanna holla! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her and Nicole!
Camryn was definitely in command on this very first senior session of the Class of 2020 season! But let’s back up a sec…
Camryn’s mom Rochelle has been my Facebook friend for a couple of years but we had never met in person! We met through mutual connections and I did not realize her daughter was an upcoming senior at our alma mater – North Farmington! So when she reached out to discuss senior pictures we were excited! When you are as active as we are on Facebook sometimes you can make a connection online that becomes a connection offline! I knew we would like Rochelle and by extension it was no shock that we liked Camryn! Camryn is adorable and smart and nice, and she wants to be a pediatrician! She’s got it together, and yes she was in command on her senior session!
We started in the studio and focused mainly on the red fabric backdrop and the black. Starting with the black:
Wow! Okay she looks amazing, and now would be a good time to give a shout out to her makeup artist Tina Jones who did a fantastic job on Camryn!
We also have some fun behind the scenes first from the studio on Facebook:
Next we switched to the fiery red fabric backdrop for this full length photo:
Camryn is so photogenic and so comfortable in front of the camera! A delight for Ally to work with!
At this point it was time to head out on location. It was brutally hot out – over 95 degrees but we were not going to be deterred! Not to mention there were supposed to be thunderstorms but those held off as well as we were glued to the hourly forecast for the previous 24 hours and watched it shift thankfully in our favor!
We headed to Quarton Lake and got this gorgeous image:
We’ll leave you with one more full length photo of our girl:
What a great session!!! Camryn was in command indeed and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!
Kendall kills it – in more ways than one! For starters she’s an accomplished volleyball player, so kills in volleyball are important – a kill is an attack that results in an immediate point or side out, and so we attacked this spokesmodel session with gusto! And yes, she killed it. Kendall will be playing volleyball at Michigan and Michigan is our shared connection. You see, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree as Kendall’s dad Vada (may he rest in peace) was my friend and teammate on the football team at Michigan so having Kendall in the fold representing our studio as the first spokesmodel we’ve ever had at Ann Arbor Skyline High School is really special for us.
We met Kendall and her mom Sarah (who Ally knew from a previous life in finance before Ally and I and Sarah and Vada got together which is pretty cool) up in Ann Arbor on a perfect Saturday for the session but actually two nights before that they came to the studio for our spokesmodel party where we did a few studio pics so let’s start with one of those:
Love the simple white backdrop with the simple white tank… Kendall looks fantastic!
Now let’s visit a few of the Ann Arbor images a couple days later where as I said before we had a perfect day! As a side note this is very typical for our senior sessions where we take some photos in the studio as well as on location. We started in the Arb where the peonies were in full bloom so it was actually pretty crowded. So we took a few photos by the flowers but shortly after we found a great spot on one of the trails:
I’m guessing we’ll be using that spot again…
We also have some fun behind the scenes from the day – first from the replay of the livestream we did on Instagram:
We also headed over to the law quad on campus which is really a beautiful setting and we used a couple different spots – here’s Kendall under one of the archway entrances to the courtyard:
And here’s the behind the scenes action on that photo from Facebook Live!
At this point we left the campus to get some photos at a couple of parks and while we usually include 4 photos in these posts we’re including an extra here since Kendall’s session is the last of our Class of 2020 spokesmodels, our first from Ann Arbor Skyline, and – well…..there were just too many good ones not to share an extra!
Love that bridge and how Kendall’s tank top pops right off of it while still almost matching it…
And we’ll leave you with this one, which might very well be our favorite of the day:
What a classic photo!!!! Classic beauty!
And there you have it – Kendall kills it indeed! We loved our day with them and we can’t wait to get Kendall in front of Ally’s camera again. For those of you who have been following along we hope you’ve enjoyed our class of 2020 crew and we can’t wait to start photographing the sessions for the upcoming seniors!!!
Paige is turning the page – from high school to college out in Boulder as a Colorado Buffalo and what’s crazy about that is that makes TWO of our spokesmodels for the class of 2019 who are attending Colorado in the fall, as Kaitlyn is as well! Hmmm…. Ally and I may have to include Boulder on a new Frameable Faces campus tour to visit these awesome young ladies! Ha! But I digress….
The point here is that we’ve loved our time with Paige and her mom Maxine – we had a great spokesmodel session a year ago now, and we picked up right where we left off this time around.
We started on location at Quarton Lake in the morning while the sun was low although we had a little cloud cover which can always work to your advantage as well:
This was a hard session to narrow down the results from – it was pretty perfect… we did have some fun with the behind the scenes as usual – first with Facebook Live:
And here’s a couple more from outside…
Pretty Paige In Pink!
And one more just flat-out gorgeous photo…
At this time we headed back to the studio to close it out with a few on the white background and we have a little more fun behind the scenes this time from Instagram:
And one of the results:
Paige looks confident, in control and well – ready to turn the page!!! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our session with her!
Ava is a character and we are huge fans. We had so much fun with her, and her photos? OMG. She’s a pro – tons of style and sass and the day we spent with her and her mom Stacie whom we went to high school with was one we won’t soon forget! A great time in Detroit and we can’t wait to do it again on her senior session. We are pleased to have her representing our studio at Bloomfield Hills High School for the class of 2020! Let’s get to the photos…
Our plan was to go to Belle Isle first and this was where the adventure started… the ramp to get onto I-75 south from I-94 was closed so we ended up heading in the opposite direction which put us right by an industrial center where we have taken some images before so we figured while we were there we would get a few….
And wow. Right off the bat Ava was in the zone – what a gorgeous image.
After a little time there we headed back down to our original destination and…..they were setting up for the Grand Prix. Ugh! No worries – we still got our skyline image that has become popular for Detroit sessions and we have a little fun behind the scenes from our livestream on Facebook:
We also have more behind the scenes this time from the livestream we did on Instagram!
Here we are rolling along into the class of 2020 spokesmodel sessions and we’re staying at Walled Lake Northern for this one as we say hello to Dana!!! Dana is a legacy since her older brother Nick had one of the most epic senior sessions of all time, so we are thrilled to have her and her awesome mom Paola back to the studio! Dana is totes adorbs and we had some more new backdrops to play with so let’s get to it…
We started out with this very cool distressed wood backdrop and Dana rocked it – love her outfit choices too – there are no major rules on that. It’s all about what you like and your style!
We also have some fun behind the scenes from our time with Dana and Paola – first from Facebook Live:
And here is the result from the pink damask with the floor setup – we love the way this turned out!
Next we have this mottled olive which also looks fantastic!
Dana is adorable.
We have some more behind the scenes too and this one was fun on Instagram Live as one of our spokesmodels from the class of 2014 Emily Brent showed up in the livestream – Emily was Dana’s camp counselor! So fun – Dana’s reaction is priceless!
And here is the result we’ll leave you with on the fiery red fabric backdrop…
And there you have it! The class of 2020 is already rocking it and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our session with Dana!
It’s that time of year when we start photographing our new spokesmodel crew and it’s weird to say that the Class of 2020 is on its way! Wow… This is always a fun time for us because this is our team that we assemble each year to represent our studio and what better way to start it off than with Sedona whom we’ve known pretty much her whole life and some new backdrops in the studio!
This isn’t Sedona’s first time on this blog either – we (our event photographer Angela) photographed her bat mitzvah a few years back and man does time fly. She did a fantastic job on this session and she’ll be representing us at Walled Lake Northern High School. So let’s get to the photos shall we?
This is the first of three backdrops we used for the first time on this day and we love the olive earth tones here with the burnt orange top – Sedona looks awesome!
We also have some behind the scenes fun too – we like for you to see how these go and catch the vibe if you will – we have fun here! If you’re not having a little fun then what’s the point right? First we have the Instagram Live replay…
Now let’s take a look at a couple more backdrops and outfits!
So cute! Ripped jeans, barn door – got a little of that rustic country feel going! Love the way that looks.
That white-washed wood is another new one and Sedona was slaying the game at this point!
Let’s get in one more behind the scenes vid for a little more fun this time from our Facebook Live:
We’ll leave you with this one on our black backdrop:
Just a nice simple pose to finish it off – Sedona is a rockstar! And there you have it! Look for more spokesmodels coming your way over the next couple of months – we are so excited for the 2020 crew!
