Hanging With Jonah (and Jack) For Senior Pictures Is Our Jam!

Jonah is a cool kid – outgoing and sharp, and we love a senior who brings the pup!  It was funny because his older sis Eden was swooning over their dog Jack on Snapchat while we were photographing since she didn’t have Jack on her session!  Haha…. gotta love a little sibling rivalry!  Jonah’s mom Lisa joined us on the session and even his dad Ethan came by since he was responsible for getting Jack home, so it was a family affair and we had a great time!
 

Hanging with Jonah and Jack!

 
We started in the studio so let’s take a look at those first, starting with a formal look on the grey background:
 
Jonah
That’s a stylin’ man right there.
 
Now let’s bring JACK into the picture!!!
 
Jonah
How awesome is Jack?  Such a great smile!!! Lol…
 
At this point we headed out on location to get some photos at Quarton Lake and in downtown Birmingham and we have some behind the scenes at Quarton Lake from Facebook Live!
 
 

Jonah

 

Great shot on a PERFECT weather day for us, and at this point we headed over to downtown to get more – here’s the behind the scenes on that from Instagram:

And the result:

Jonah

So there you have it!  Photographing Jonah (and Jack) was our jam indeed – we had a great day and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!

We Were VIKTORIOUS With Viktor On His Senior Session!

VIKTORIOUS!!!  That’s how we all felt after our day – Viktor, his parents & Ally and me!  Such a cool class of 2020 senior session with plenty of stuff we did on a whim and it all worked out!  From boutiques and restaurants around Birmingham who were more than happy to let us come in and take pics like Churchill’s and Teacups & Toys, a Pet Boutique, to great weather and just generally exploring, it was a flawless outing!  Viktor is a cool dude too which we knew – we’ve photographed him with the whole family and he hung out on big brother Maksim’s session too – so we were looking forward to this one with mom Susie and dad Mike whom I go back with over 40 years!
 

VIKTORIOUS WITH VIKTOR…

 
We focused on location photos for Viktor in Birmingham so let’s get to the highlights:
 
Viktor
 
This one looks so cool in black and white – Viktor is the man!
 
We also have some fun behind the scenes on this one first from the Instagram Livestream – check it out!
 

Let’s get to a few more:
 
Viktor
Such a cool spot with the ivy covered building!!!
 
Viktor
The marquee of the Birmingham Theater is a pretty cool backdrop too.  Viktor crushed it.
 
Last but not least, we asked the folks at Churchill’s if we could come in and shoot and they were more than accommodating!  It was around 11 AM so it was well before the lunch crowd and we were in and out pretty fast.  We have photographed in the West Bloomfield location as well just across the street from our studio and they are really nice there.  Great big humidor and selection of spirits and a wonderful menu in Birmingham – highly recommended.  Here’s the behind the scenes from Facebook Live:
 

…..and the result:
 
Viktor
SO cool right?
 
Yes a VIKTORIOUS day was had indeed, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!

We Were All In With Ari In Birmingham For Senior Pictures!

We’ve known Ari since he was in nursery school and he was our Tony’s “first friend” so it was pretty surreal to have him here at the studio as a grown up senior for his senior pictures!  We photographed his older brother and we love his mom Donna so we were excited for this one, and even his dad Gary came along on location to hang out!
 

All In With Ari

We focused on location photos so let’s start in downtown Birmingham:
 
Ari
Good lookin’ dude!
 
Of course we have some fun behind the scenes first from Facebook LIVE:
 

Let’s see a couple more…
 
Ari
Dope.
 
Ari
 
We also headed over to Quarton Lake to get a couple of pics in a natural setting and here’s some more behind the scenes this time with a nice vehicle they brought along on Instagram:
 

And we’ll leave you with just a nice simple natural pic of our guy!

Ari
 
And there you have it!  We were all in with Ari and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Kickin’ It With Kendall In Ann Arbor Gave Us A Kaleidoscope Of Feels!

Kendall gives us a kaleidoscope of feels which pretty much means that we really like her.  Okay it goes beyond that – we have history with her family going back over 30 years now and we detailed some of that in the blog post for her spokesmodel session back in June!  Kendall has been our first spokesmodel representing Ann Arbor Skyline High School and we really enjoy having her in front of Ally’s camera!!!  We actually broke this one up into two different days to fit it into our schedules – Kendall and Sarah wanted some studio pics but we also love any excuse to head up to Ann Arbor so we did both!  Let’s get to the highlights:

Kickin’ It With Kendall

The first day we were in the studio and here we have Kendall on the red Victorian couch on the black backdrop!

Kendall

Here’s the fun behind the scenes from that photo from our Facebook Livestream!

For the second day as mentioned before we made the trek up to Ann Arbor to hang with Kendall, her mom Sarah, and her little sis Harper!  We had a perfect day:

Kendall

Gorgeous – back at the law quad at U of M where Kendall will be attending and playing volleyball next year!

Meanwhile there was a wall that caught our eye on a recent trip to Ann Arbor and we decided to use it for a few photos – it looks GREAT and here’s the fun behind the scenes from Instagram:

And the result:

Kendall

Love that red!

We’ll leave you with one more from a park we never knew existed – so cool:

Kendall

And there you have it – Kendall gave us all the feels – a kaleidoscope of them if you will!  Ha!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day(s) with her!

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!

Josie is a Josie – We’ll Explain Below With Her Senior Session Highlights!

Josie is an outgoing smiley cool chick.  She lights up a room and we were looking forward to her session, which rocked!  So sometimes when I write these I search for various stuff online for inspiration – things that match the senior or catch the vibe of the day.  In this case I started by simply Googling “Josie” – just curious what I’d find.  The first result was an (apparently bad) thriller movie that I hadn’t heard of.  BUT – the second result was PERFECT.  It was the definition of a “Josie” in the Urban Dictionary.  I didn’t know a “Josie” was a thing but check this out:
 

UrbanDictionary.com

Holy moly – Josie IS a Josie!!!!!  That is literally perfect.  Josie’s mom Gayle was out of town so she brought an entourage with her – fellow Frameable seniors Carli and Izzy and we had a blast.  We focused on location photos exclusively and we headed to Birmingham to get them…
 

Josie is a Josie…

Josie

Beautiful!!!  And a shout out here to Natalie on hair and Farah on makeup at Mandy Rose Studio for the outstanding job!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from our day first from the Facebook LIVE:

And here’s a stunning image with that outfit…

Josie

 

Love it!

One more from Quarton Lake before we headed on into downtown Birmingham, and how cool is a senior who wears a Ramones shirt to her session???

Josie

 

Hey, ho, let’s go……to downtown Birmingham…. lol!

Here’s a little more behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram:

And we’ll leave you with this one in the city….

Josie

 

So pretty!

And there you have it!  There’s no doubt Josie is indeed a Josie, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

Elisha is an Eyeful Of Adorable on her Senior Picture Session!

Elisha is an eyeful of adorable indeed – just a sweetheart and she and her mom Tammy joined us on a perfect day in Birmingham for her senior pictures!  This was not their first time in the studio since we did some family portraits for them some time back, so it was a pleasure to have them back to Frameable Faces!  A great way for Ally to spend part of her birthday – doing what she loves with good people!  Quarton Lake was the gameplan for Elisha and we made it happen, but we’ll start in the studio…

Eyeful Of Adorable

For the studio pictures we kept it pretty simple and we’ll highlight this photo on the white backdrop:

Eyeful

See?  Adorable!

We also have a little fun behind the scenes first from Facebook LIVE:

At this point it was time to head out on location to Birmingham where a ton of flowers were in bloom and the conditions were perfect!

Eyeful

Gorgeous.

We also have more behind the scenes fun from Birmingham from our Instagram livestream:

And here come the flowers…

Eyeful

Love the purple top with the purple flower!

And we’ll leave you this relaxed pose:

Eyeful

So pretty!

And there you have it – Elisha definitely gave us an eyeful of adorable on this day, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!

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!

Dana Dazzles on a Dynamite Senior Picture Session!

Dana dazzles indeed in these highlights from her senior session but we’re not surprised – she’s a spokesmodel for us this year for the Walled Lake Northern Knights, we’ve known her for a couple years now and we had great fun with her for her spokesmodel session!  When we photographed her in March we were in the studio the whole time so this time we got to go on location and we had a perfect day!  Her mom Paola joined us and we LOVE Paola so it made for a great outing – a dynamite session!

Dana Dazzles…

Birmingham was the spot – Quarton Lake specifically, so let’s get to some pics:

Dana Dazzles

She’s adorable!  Let’s give a shout out to Farah at Mandy Rose Studio for the makeup and Lida at Pannos Salon for Dana’s hair too!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the day starting with Instagram LIVE:

Moving right along with an outfit change:

Dana Dazzles

Gorgeous.  Like we said this was just a dynamite session….

Dana Dazzles

Wow….

Let’s see a little more behind the scenes fun this time from Facebook:

And we’ll leave you with this last one…

Dana Dazzles

So yeah…..Dana dazzles – no doubt about that, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!
