Rose Shows Up All The Other Flowers In The Garden On Her Senior Pics!

Rose makes her second appearance on the blog in (appropriately) a GARDEN, and she showed up all those other flowers there – they didn’t stand a chance.  Rose is a class of 2023 spokesmodel for us and a senior at Walled Lake Northern, and we love her.  Her mom Sharyn and dad Alan joined us for a memorable day with great weather for the encore and she slayed the game which was not surprising, so let’s get to some highlights!

Rose Shows Up The Other Flowers

This was a brand new spot for us – let us know if you’re interested in using it – it will pretty much always be Rose’s since she was first…

Rose

Gorgeous!!!!!!

And a shout out to our neighbors down the hall The Beauty Lounge for Rose’s hair and makeup…

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

Rose

Okay wow…

Rose

And wow again – we love this photo – something about the little lean in her pose and that awesome smile.

A little more behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram

And we’ll leave you with this one – as we said, the flowers didn’t stand a chance.  Hehe…

Rose

LOVE!

And there you have it – a fabulous flowery day with a Rose – our Rose!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!

A Second Time Around With Sasha For Senior Pics In Detroit!

The second time around with Sasha was as memorable as we knew it would be.  This future Arizona Wildcat has style to burn and she represented our studio for the class of 2022 as a spokesmodel for Frankel Jewish Academy in grand fashion!  We love this girl and her mom Kristine and we were looking forward to getting her in front of Ally’s camera again!  We spent the whole session in Detroit and Sasha slayed – of course…!  Let’s get to some highlights.

A Second Time Around With Sasha

We spent a lot of time in and around Eastern Market and here’s a fantastic highlight to kick it off…

Second Time Around

LOVE IT.  That gate is cool.

Second Time Around

And there are endless murals… and Sasha knew how to pick ’em.

We went a little “post-apocalyptic” on the next stop and here’s some behind the scenes from Facebook:

And the result:

Second Time Around

We love that shot!

We have some more fun behind the scenes from Eastern Market before we headed over to the DIA this time from Instagram:

Everything Was Coming Up Roses With Rose on Her Spokesmodel Session!

We became instant fans of Rose – it didn’t take long.  Actually we’re fans of Rose and her mom Sharyn whom we recently did a headshot for and we were with Rose at the BBYO Building Entrepreneurship event recently so we’ve become fast friends!  Rose is a character in the best way – she’s funny – and she’s smart, adorable, dynamic – all the things!  We’re thrilled to have her representing our studio for the rising high school class of 2023 at Walled Lake Northern!

Coming Up Roses

We spent a gorgeous day in Birmingham for her spokesmodel session which has always been a popular spot for our seniors, so let’s get to a few highlights shall we?

Coming Up Roses

Yes!  This was a new spot and angle for Ally and Rose nailed it.  We also need to give a shout out to our neighbors in the mall The Beauty Lounge for Rose’s hair and makeup!

Next we changed spots and outfits (our seniors typically change outfits several times for senior sessions) and we fired up the Facebook Live for a little behind the scenes fun!

And here’s the result!

Coming Up Roses

Gorgeous girl!

Another outfit change and….wow.

Coming Up Roses

This was the one that got Sharyn…  a really sweet moment when mom got emotional over her baby looking so beautiful.  I grabbed a pic with the iPhone…

Gets us in the feels…

Okay back to some more behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram:

Oh but we’re not done… we have a little bonus…
 
Rose was posing for this next pic when THE most adorable little photobomber decided to join us – we asked and her mom said yes, so here you go!
 
 
Everything was coming up Roses indeed – Rose was making friends!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her as we look forward to the fast approaching senior season – we can’t wait to get her in front of Ally’s camera again!

Building Entrepreneurship With BBYO In Detroit!

Building Entrepreneurship is a BBYO program that we were honored to participate in recently in Detroit!  BBYO is the leading pluralistic Jewish teen movement aspiring to involve more Jewish teens in more meaningful Jewish experiences, and both of our kids were very active in it while they were in high school.  We love to give back and anytime we can tell our story and mentor young people about business and careers we are game!

Building Entrepreneurship!

Ally did most of the presenting to this crew of young ladies at the Hilton Garden Inn in Detroit where I grabbed this pano of the room (with my iPhone)…

Building Entrepreneurship

We always think it’s important to get young people to start thinking about viewing the world from a business standpoint – even if it’s just in terms of following your passion and looking at the social media platforms they are already on from a marketing and career standpoint.  Follow the brands and professions you like on Instagram for example in addition to your friends!  See how they operate, how they communicate to their communities.  It’s easy to learn plenty even if you aren’t sure what you want to do with your life!

After we told the story of Frameable Faces with some tips about how we grew the business and some advice mixed in we took a couple of fun group photos… 

First with smiles…

Building Entrepreneurship

And then with some silliness… hehe…

Building Entrepreneurship

All in all it was a great experience for us with this fantastic group!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with them!

Her Royal Highness Princess Pinky Girl Graces The Studio!

Princess Pinky Girl herself (aka Jenn Fishkind) came to the studio for some updated photos for her website and we had a blast!  Jenn has really grown her brand with almost 5 million followers on her Pinterest page and a huge following of the fun, yummy and easy recipes at her blog.  You should check out her website and subscribe to her email newsletter – like immediately.  The girl knows a little something about branding so we were honored that she chose us to take hers to yet another level! 

Meanwhile this was such a fun session with candy, cupcakes and even a candy crown courtesy of our friend on the East Coast Ms. Candy Blog, and Jenn crushed it – she looked fabulous and we laughed a whole lot….  let’s get to a few highlights!

Her Royal Highness – Princess Pinky Girl! 

Princess Pinky Girl

Okay she’s adorable…

We have some fun behind the scenes from the session too – first from Facebook:

And we’re just bubbling over with joy over this next one…

Princess Pinky Girl

See what we did there…?

At this point we headed over to LaFata Cabinets here at the Orchard Mall – they’re our neighbors and they have a beautiful showroom!  A big thank you to them for letting us use their store!

Here’s a little more behind the scenes this time from Instagram over at Lafata Cabinets:

Carly Takes Over The Studio For Carly Ann Fit Fitness Photos!

Carly is awesome.  We are so impressed with this young lady and we’re not surprised since we’ve known her parents for decades – I grew up with her mom and played high school football and ran track with her dad so it was a little surreal having her here ready to launch her coaching business Carly Ann Fit to the next level with some fresh new fitness photos!

You can follow Carly at her Instagram page – she takes the whole approach of mind, body and soul with her clients and she’s a motivational dynamo with a 90 day transformation plan for her peeps!  Let’s get to the highlights of her session!

Carly Ann Fit Fitness Photos!

What a bad ass pose.  And Carly will be the first to tell you that SHE worked really hard to get the body she has now – gotta love a fitness coach that is walking the walk.  We also have some fun behind the scenes from the session first on Facebook:

Carly then changed into a few different outfits and here’s just a sampling of poses and style that captures her brand:

Violet Brings The Violet Style To Detroit As Only They Can!

Violet came to the studio with their mom Polly and we didn’t know what we were in for – Violet had very strong ideas about what they envisioned for their senior pictures – a goth approach to the makeup and a very specific look.  So when Violet showed up the day of the session we were stunned at how cool their look actually was, and much credit goes to Yasmine at Mandy Rose for the makeup – as a matter of fact she posted a little video of Violet’s face before they left to come to the studio…

Kollyns Is The Most Adorable Almost 6 Month Old We Know!

Melyssa was once known (and still is as far as we’re concerned) as the “Frameable Faces Fairy” and she’s a legend here!  She and her family have become friends of ours over the years (here’s a throwback to a session of Melyssa and her sisters) and she recently brought her THIRD child to the studio – almost-6-month-old Kollyns!  Hard for us to believe!  And Kollyns is such an adorable smush.  We loved having her here and we need to show you these highlights!

Kollyns is adorable

Simple and scrumptious – we’re going to let these photos mostly speak for themselves.

Kollyns

That smile!!!

Kollyns

She’s awesome.  We also have a little fun behind the scenes from Facebook:

And these next two are the end…
Kollyns
Hehe…..
Kollyns
LOVE!  Kollyns is delicious and we hope you enjoyed this little taste of her session!

Alex & Ebony Brought The Whole Crew To The Studio For Family Portraits!

You gotta love when you get a crew that genuinely enjoys being together like these peeps.  Especially when some of them have their own things going on, kids at different levels of school all the way up to college, and indeed this was attempt #2 to get them all in for the session – and it worked!

As for who they are – Alex and I go way back as teammates at Michigan, and he brought his beautiful wife and all the kids here for a memorable afternoon!  Pretty excited to share these so let’s get to it:

Alex, Ebony and the crew!

We’ll start with everyone in a classic black and white look:

Ebony

Stunning group!

We also have some fun behind the scenes from Facebook:

We broke it down into a bunch of different combinations and we’ll share a few of them here – first just the kids:

Ebony

 

Next just the daughters….

Ebony

…and finally just the dudes!

Love the way these turned out and it was so great to have my old buddy here with his family!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with them!

Twin Seniors in Detroit! Next Up: Awesomeness With Austin!

In our last post we highlighted Haley with the promise that her twin brother Austin (who made a cameo in the highlights) would get his turn in the spotlight as the follow up.  So here we are!  We gushed about these two in the last one but a little more gushing might still be in order – you’ll see why since Austin is as photogenic as his twin sister!  What great kids and what a great day this was.  So let’s get to part 2 – awesomeness with Austin!

Awesomeness With Austin

We’ll start with a few pics on Belle Isle for Austin:

Austin

Looking good – awesomeness indeed!

We also have some behind the scenes of Austin and Haley on Belle Isle from Instagram:

So fun!  Here are a couple more of Austin solo – first up close and personal:
 
Austin
A genuine smile on this dude!
 
One more:
 
Austin
We love that one.  As you may know from Haley’s post we headed over to Eastern Market when we started to get a little rain and Austin went a little more formal for that juxtaposition – the fancy with the urban decay and some off camera flash:
 
Austin
So cool!  And we’ll leave you with one more of the twins in this night time black and white that we think turned out quite nicely:
 
And there you have it!  Awesomeness with Austin and this concludes the two part series of our time with the twins – we hope you enjoyed the highlights!
