A Last Hurrah Session For A Family Starting A New Chapter!

Jaime was here years ago with her first born when she was a baby and then again with her middle child, and she called us to say she wanted to bring everything full circle with a family session of her, her hubby, and her THREE kids before they move across the state!  We love reconnecting with our Frameable families and seeing how they’ve grown, and this was a nice poignant moment to capture with a last hurrah session in Northville before they start their new chapter!

Last Hurrah Session In Northville!

We went to a park the kids have played in many many times and we started with them pushing this big spinning rock – just having fun!

Last Hurrah Session

Of course we have a little bit of fun behind the scenes from the Snapchat story from the day…

Now let’s take a look at a few more of the whole fam…

Last Hurrah Session

What a crew!

We like the composition of this next scene framing the family…

Last Hurrah Session

Such a lovely scene!

And there you have it!  A really nice last hurrah session before the move and we wish them the very best in their new ‘hood!!!

Get Your Professional Headshots! These Three Did – Here Are Examples!

Professional headshots are important for lots of reasons and lots of different needs.  For starters they look….well….professional, and if you are looking for a job, promoting your brand, modeling, or looking to get your personality across in a way that does it right your best bet is to trust a pro – not just Ally but in general.  Here we have a few recent ones to share with you just for fun, partly because it may be helpful, give you an idea or two, and let’s be real – we just like these people and we want them on our blog.

Get Your Professional Headshots!

We’ll start with Jack.  Jack is a bad dude and freshly graduated from the University of Michigan – he’s heading out into the workplace, already has a gig lined up and needs a nice professional photo to put online – like LinkedIn perhaps.  When it comes to professional headshots for many LinkedIn is the go to because that’s typically where you represent your professional self.  Yes LinkedIn is social, but it’s social in a professional context so if you’re a consultant or an attorney you may not want a funny photo of you eating a burger which could be good for a giggle on Facebook for example.  These are relatively standard with a slight difference in posture from one to the next which signals a little more engagement with the viewer respectively…

Jack

Professional Headshots

And now leaning in a little…

Professional Headshots

There are lots of nuances to the posing depending on how you want to represent yourself…

Of course it wouldn’t be a Frameable Faces blog post without some behind the scenes fun right?  Just a quick blast from twitter…

Leah

Next we have Leah – Leah is an aspiring model and needed some photos to send to agencies and eventually maybe some comp cards – we do plenty of these and they’re a lot of fun!  Leah was great in front of the camera!!!

Professional Headshots

Here’s a little Facebook fun behind the scenes from Leah’s session….  

And here’s one more from Leah…  what a rock star!

Professional Headshots

Ken

Last but not least here’s Ken – yes you recognize him as the play-by-play announcer for the Detroit Red Wings on Fox Sports Detroit.  Ken is obviously an established guy and needed a few different photos for various things he has going and in his case while we used the same blue / grey mottled backdrop we used for Jack above we changed it up and did a couple professional and a couple casual.  Different styles for different uses.

Here’s the casual in three quarter length:

Professional Headshots

Some behind the scenes fun where you can see Ken switched to a more formal look…

…and the result:

Professional Headshots

Success!

And now all three of them have the professional headshots to help them with their successes in the world!  Hope you enjoyed this photo essay – we sure enjoyed having them here at the studio!

Alexandria Adorable – A Smushy Little Cutie at Two Months!

Alexandria Adorable just sums it up.  What a cute little smushy baby with a TON of personality at such a young age!  We don’t usually expect to get smiles like we did at 2 months but Alexandria is already ahead of her time, and her parents La Shawn and Aaron are just delightful.  We had a great time with them and Alexandria couldn’t have been easier to work with.  No crying, no meltdowns – a total pro at 2 months!

Alexandria Adorable

So let’s get to some highlights shall we?  We’ll start on the orange chair:

Alexandria Adorable

She’s SO CUTE!!!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from the session – first with the replay of the Facebook Live livestream:

At one point Alexandria decided to take a little snooze – like an angel….

Alexandria Adorable

La Shawn and Aaron got into the act a little as well for a few family portraits and we have some more behind the scenes of that with the raw video replay from the Instagram Live:

And here is a really nice one of the three of them…

Alexandria Adorable

Lots of love in that photo!

We’ll leave you with one more of Miss Alexandria being all pretty in pink:

Alexandria Adorable

And there you have it!  Alexandria Adorable indeed.  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with them!

5 Totally Legit Reasons You Should Join Our Patreon Page!

Patreon is described in Wikipedia as “a membership platform that provides business tools for creators to run a subscription content service, as well as ways for artists to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or “patrons.”  We have our own Patreon, we are working really hard on it and we believe in it.  We hope you will join us and here are 5 totally legit reasons why you should.

Patreon

5 Totally Legit Reasons Why You Should Join Our Patreon Page

 

First of all, Patreon itself is really cool.

Let’s just talk about Patreon for a second if you aren’t familiar with it.  It’s a great website as well as mobile app that is growing and adding features and opportunities constantly.  You can find creators of all sorts to connect with there and subscribe to their page for anywhere from one dollar to $15 per month (and sometimes more for really big rewards) just for various levels of fun basic content.  Artists, musicians, comedians, business gurus, podcasters, vloggers – you name it.  And the creators who rely on this platform to make a living at what they do are generally really thankful for their communities who subscribe for their content.

As an end user you can go on the desktop version and even better download the mobile app.  The creators you subscribe to can upload video, audio, photos, livestreams, links, polls, stories, or just text  right to the app.  So you can listen, watch, comment, and interact with other fans & followers all from your smartphone.  You can access all of these things on demand as you like – a great way to support the people you enjoy on the go.  You’ll love it. 

Keep in mind that the best creators on Patreon typically have YouTube channels, blogs, Instagram and Snapchat, and a whole variety of profiles online where they’re sharing free content, but the ones who do it right are giving extra rewards and exclusive content to their patrons because the patrons are paying for it – they definitely appreciate your support.

As for OUR Patreon page, we’ve already posted a TON of stuff there…and we’re adding more.

We aren’t messing around.  We are off to a solid start with a handful of subscribers and we are working really hard to create content exclusively for Patreon.  Heck, part of the impetus for starting Patreon was the fact that people were asking us on our Periscope 📷Doug&Ally📷Morning Show!🎙☕ to do a podcast.  While we thought that would be fun we figured at some point it has to be sustainable for us to keep adding content that isn’t exactly our core business of photography.  Yes our content highlights our brand and is great for promotion but certain content in and of itself has value if we do it right and there are only so many hours in the day – as I said it has to be sustainable.  We felt a podcast along with some other things would fit the bill… so The📷Doug&Ally📷Morning Show!🎙☕………Podcast!  was born…

Patreon

We are having a blast with the podcast, and a shout out goes to the amazing Olivia Thai who supplied the little impromptu beatbox intro that you hear at the beginning of each one which we literally pulled from when she called into our morning show one day!

Meanwhile, we have SO much else to offer, and so we’ve been pouring ourselves into creating content for Patreon much like the courses we have taught here at our studio such as Doug’s teachings in his “2 Hour Social Media Class” and Ally’s “Photography 101” class.  People who follow us outside of the Metro Detroit area had been asking for a way to learn from us or get online courses and now Patreon gives us a way to do that with in-depth tutorials that we upload there.  The feedback on these has been solid (more on that in a bit) and we’ll even take requests on topics that our Patrons want covered specifically.  We do some of these with recordings of our computer screens while we’re walking you through how to create social media content or how to edit a photo in Photoshop.  These are great because you can access them on demand, at your own pace and you can watch them repeatedly.

We’ve added a few other exclusive series there too such as “Entrepreneur Life” where we talk about the highs and lows, thrills and challenges of having your own business – things that we’ve learned and sometimes the hard way…  We even include the occasional blooper!  As of this first writing we are at over 40 pieces of content total, available at the various levels.

You may find if you browse around Patreon overall that there are some who use their page simply as a donation mechanism – a way for their followers to contribute money to support what they are already doing elsewhere.  Not calling anyone out specifically or saying that’s bad per se…  But that’s not our strategy.  If you’re paying for our Patreon, you’re getting your money’s worth ON Patreon.  We’ll even send you a 📷Doug&Ally📷Morning Show!🎙☕ bookmark at the $5 level and up!

Our Patrons Are Happy – they are validating what we are doing there – so take their word for it!

We are getting great feedback so far and there are subscription levels for everybody – from just $2 per month to be included in our private Periscope group – this is a great thing by the way.  Sometimes we just go on Periscope live in a private broadcast just for our Patrons to get feedback, chat or we’ll even livestream there under our own personal profiles @dougcohen10 or @AllyCohen_1 if we feel like waxing poetic on our own passions like music, history, football, parenting – whatever, and the patrons are really enjoying this.  We are getting great feedback so far at all of the various reward levels.  Take a look at some of the comments from the page…

Participation and Community is at the heart of what we do – Patreon is a shining example

We’ve always said we are all the Frameable Faces – sure it’s Doug & Ally – we own the business.  But we’re part of the community just like everyone else, and it’s our peeps that make our studio and it will be our peeps that make the Patreon page too.  Our friend Gareth from the UK is “Pliny The Round” and he’s already been posting in the “Community” tab on the Patreon which is awesome.  The people do and will continue to shape the community there.  We’ve had Patrons make suggestions for things to include in the Podcast and we frequently reach out for feedback.  At this point we are toying with adding Discord to our page (an app much like Slack that gamers have traditionally used for group chat and voice to text around certain topics) which can be integrated with Patreon.  Just another way to bring the community closer together – so we’ll see how Discord plays out.  Regardless, with Patreon since people are subscribing everyone has a vested interest in making it great!

When we share tips we don’t hold back – we pour out our knowledge…

We don’t really horde our secrets.  We subscribe to the idea that sharing helps the community, it helps the industry whether that be social media or photography, and we never have just one main magic sauce really anyway.  Once we’ve shared the sauce we’ve already concocted the next one.  We’re always concocting a new sauce and improving the current sauce, and just because someone took our sauce and tried to make it doesn’t mean they’ll make it exactly how we made it.  If by chance they made it better than us?  Well than that will just give us something to shoot for won’t it?

If you like the way we do things and you think you could learn from us, you will at our Patreon page.  We promise.  Thanks for reading and we hope to you see you there!  We won’t let you down!

Krista Brought Joe & Cutest Parents Jim & Jean By For A Special Session!

Krista and Joe have been to the studio a couple times before for various family photos – some with the kids, but never with just them and Krista’s parents Jim and Jean.  We are so happy they did this because it was much fun and just really so special!  You could just tell this meant a lot to all of them and the behind the scenes from Facebook and Snapchat will give you a sense of that.  Besides Jim and Jean were both a delight to have a little fun banter with – they were great on camera!  We nominate them in the category of Cutest Parents Ever.

Cutest Parents Ever!

These photos were all done in the studio with a couple of outfit changes for Krista and Joe so they could get a few photos together just the two of them.  But first we’re going to focus on the photos that include Jim and Jean, starting with a group photo:

Cutest Parents

Next we have this wonderful photo of Jim and Jean together…

Cutest Parents

So much love in that photo!  And here you can see just how much fun we were having in the behind the scenes livestream from Facebook Live!  Just click on the arrow in the middle of the image below.

 

We’ll share one of Krista and her mommy before we conclude with one of Krista and Joe…

Cutest Parents

LOVE.

Now we have one of Krista and Joe a bit more dressed up and looking GREAT!

Cutest Parents

Last but not least we decided to upload the Snapchat story to our YouTube channel so we could include it here just because there were a few more great moments there….

So there you have it!  Krista, Joe, and Krista’s cutest parents!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with them!

A Super Springtime Senior Session Junket With Joshua!

We love springtime seniors!  The majority of seniors take their pictures with us throughout the summer and fall but we always get a handful after the winter is over, and when the trees are just starting to bloom it makes for some great scenery!  With Joshua we had good weather too and his mom Gail joined us for some fantastic photos on this senior session junket with Joshua!

First an experiment in the Studio…

Before we share the location shots we actually started in the studio, and Ally has been playing with her lighting, so with our big soft box on the other side of the studio she positioned Joshua in front of it for a high key white background instead of our usual white vinyl backdrop and we got this result – pretty cool!

Senior Session Junket

Here’s a little behind the scenes snippet from this experiment from Facebook Live – check it out!

Now let’s catch up with our location day…

Springtime Senior Session Junket

We stayed in and around West Bloomfield where there are plenty of awesome spots like this one that we call “the slab”.Senior Session Junket

Just chillin’

The other thing that’s cool about Spring seniors is they usually know exactly where they’re going in the Fall.  Sometimes they do in the previous Fall but sometimes they don’t yet…  For Joshua he’s going BLUE and wearing Maize!

Senior Session Junket

For the last photo Joshua put on a pink shirt which always makes Ally happy – Ally loves the guys in pink and we have more behind the scenes fun here on the Intagram Live replay from our YouTube channel:

And here is the result!

Senior Session Junket

Good looking dude!

And there you have it – our senior session junket with Josh!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with him!

Bring On The Class of 2019 Spokesmodel GUYS Jumping Off With Josh!

So far we have highlighted 8 – count ’em – 8 senior spokesmodel GIRLS from the upcoming class of 2019.  So now it’s time for the 2019 spokesmodel GUYS – Josh and Tony who are buds and bad dudes.  Today the focus is on Josh who is a Walled Lake Central Viking, a lacrosse player and potentially a future attorney…

We had a pretty hilarious and productive day with Josh and his mom Amy and we got some great photos indoors and on location so let’s get to ’em!

2019 Spokesmodel Guys – Josh

We started on location in the morning.  Morning sessions begin outside while the sun is lower in the sky…  Here’s a simple seated photo of our guy…

2019 Spokesmodel GUYS

At this point we relocated and went live on Instagram for some behind the scenes fun!  Here’s the replay from our YouTube channel!

And here’s a close up result:

2019 Spokesmodel GUYS

Handsome dude!

Back to the studio…

Now it was time to get SERIOUS….  Suit and tie time!!!  We often photograph our formal guys on the grey paper – we just like the way it looks.

2019 Spokesmodel GUYS

At this point we went live again – this time on Facebook for some more behind the scenes: 

And we’ll leave you with the photo that could be the consensus favorite – lol…

2019 Spokesmodel GUYS

How great is that?

Josh was a great jump-off point for the class of 2019 spokesmodel guys!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our morning with him.  Tony will close it out next….

We Were Awed By Audrey On Her Senior Spokesmodel Session!

We are in awe of Audrey!  We were certainly awed by her on her spokesmodel session – what a cool human.  We actually have so much in common with this family it’s scary…  They’ve rescued a bunch of cats – so did we and we still have a couple of them.  Audrey’s dad is in a band.  So is Doug.  They don’t eat meat.  We don’t either….  It just seemed like the planets aligned for us to meet them and Audrey’s mom Michelle is as cool as Audrey – the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.  Audrey herself is a sharp cookie with personality to burn – we gotta say we think we really recruited well for this year’s spokesmodel crew!!!  With Audrey we are also extra excited because she’s our very FIRST Troy Athens Redhawk!!!

Awed By Audrey

So Audrey came ready to roll on a day where the weather forecast kept changing.  It was supposed to be a total rainout, and then it wasn’t, but then it did rain, but then it stopped….. sheesh.  We were prepared to just go all studio but as you’ll see we did make it outside in the end.  We’ll start with the studio though on the black background with the black couch which is a look we love – especially with Audrey’s contrasting blonde hair:

AudreyLove that one!

Next we broke out our grey fabric for the first time with this class of 2019 spokesmodel crew.  We have two greys – the paper and the fabric and we like both a lot.  We also did a little behind the scenes livestreaming for this part on Facebook Live – take a look by clicking on the video below!

And here is one of the grey background results…

Audrey

Stunning.

Dodging the Downpour

Just before Audrey and Michelle arrived at the studio it was pouring outside – we can hear it from the roof above our studio when it comes down hard.  We thought we weren’t going outdoors at all.  But then it stopped and the forecast was showing only “cloudy” with 5%-15% chance of rain the rest of the day.  So we went out.  Right when we got to our location it started raining again and we decided to wait it out for a little bit as we saw our opportunity slipping away….  we were in two cars and we had a group text going…

 

Audrey

Hehe….

But lo and behold just when we were about to call it a day the rain stopped!  We sprung into action and got a couple more gems – we even got in another livestream on Instagram!

Audrey

Here’s our fun behind the scenes Instagram Live which skips a little because the signal wasn’t great…

We’ll leave you with one more from outside – we were happy to get these because Spring is finally arriving and there’s a little color out there now….

Audrey

And there you have it!  We were certainly Awed by Audrey – we can’t wait to get her in front of Ally’s camera again for her senior pictures!

Making Front PAIGE News With Our Latest Senior Spokesmodel!

We are so thrilled with Paige – we totally connected on her senior spokesmodel session and she is just one of our peeps.  That’s it.  She just is – she totally fits in and we feel like we’ve known her forever.  Her mom Maxine?  Same way.  We just had so much fun, and so Paige is definitely FRONT PAIGE NEWS for our studio as far as we’re concerned and she is representing Frankel Jewish Academy for the senior class of 2019!

Front Paige News

It’s always funny with the spokesmodel sessions when Ally says to me beforehand “okay I don’t want to go too crazy today” because we don’t need a ton of photos for these sessions in order to get some images out into the scene for the upcoming senior class, and yet that’s often what happens.  Very often we just fall in love with our spokesmodel crew and Ally can’t help herself – this session with Paige was a marathon and we probably would have been happy to go longer!  We started in the studio so we could get a few photos on our red paper and the silver metal setups.  First the red with the full length:

Front Paige News

Beautiful!

Next we brought out the silver metal… and we started a Facebook Livestream with Facebook Creator for some behind the scenes fun!  Click on it and check it out!

 

And here is one of the results…

Front Paige News

Heading Out

At this point we headed outdoors to get a few photos on location and first we returned to an old graffiti wall we haven’t been to in quite some time… this yielded a real winner!  LOVE this one:

Front Paige News

We made one more stop over by the West Bloomfield Library for a few and we did a little Instagram livestream for some more behind the scenes fun – take a look from our YouTube channel!

And we’ll leave you with this last one outside…

Front Paige NewsBeautiful with the backlight and the off camera flash!  Definitely front PAIGE news indeed, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our awesome day with her!

The Third Time Brings Us Chloe as a Spokesmodel and She’s a Charm!

Chloe is the third senior we’ve “borrowed” (hehe) from this family to put in front of Ally’s camera after sisters Alayna & Emily, but the third time is a charm since she’s the first spokesmodel from this fam!  All these girls are delightful so it’s not a surprise that Chloe is carrying on the tradition so well, it’s just cool that we get to photograph her twice!  Today we’re highlighting a few images from her spokesmodel session and the great day we had with her and her mom Krista as she represents the Birmingham Groves class of 2019!

Third Time’s A Charm….Named Chloe

We wanted to get a few photos in the studio first so we went with the black and blowy which we are doing with every spokesmodel…

Chloe

Love that…

Next we broke out our pink backdrop which usually makes a couple of appearances in each senior class and we have some fun behind the scenes on this one from Facebook Live!

And here’s a pink pic:

Chloe

Yassssss.

At this point we headed outside – first to one of our favorite nature preserves for a few photos on a set of flat rocks we call “The Slab”:

Chloe

And we have more behind the scenes fun from this part of the session from our Instagram Live – this is the raw video without comments from our YouTube Channel.

The last photo we’ll share was at the end of the session and involved a little adventure – a passerby suggested we walk about a “fifth” of a mile down the pathway to a “decking” with a great view.  It was more like a mile, we wouldn’t say it was a “decking” even though we’re not totally sure what a “decking” is supposed to be, and it wasn’t much of a view.  We were a little salty.  BUT – we still got a couple of amazing photos on the trail and this one is definitely one of our favorites from the day!!! 

Chloe

Wowsers!  Just stunning….

And that’s a great one to finish with!  The third time was definitely a charm with Chloe and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!
