Kendall Kills It On Her Senior Spokesmodel Session For The Class Of ’20!

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.

Kendall Kills It

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!

To Ann Arbor…

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!

Kendall KillsLove 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:

Kendall KillsWhat 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!!!

Evidence Of Emily Being Exceptional On Her Senior Session!

Yes there is plenty of evidence of Emily being exceptional – not just on her senior session in case the title is misleading, because we’ve known this for a while.  Really since the first time we met her and throughout her time representing the studio as a spokesmodel for the class of 2018!  Plus she’s a North Farmington Raider which always helps, but she’s no ordinary Raider, she’s an accomplished musician and student athlete!  She’s a total character as well so really she’s the whole package and we are huge fans!

Emily Being Exceptional

With Emily we traveled to Ann Arbor and spent the morning photographing on and around the U of M campus which obviously has lots of great spots, and her mom Jen joined – we always have a great time together with them!  We’ll start with this one:

Emily

Stunningly beautiful!

Now there’s a little story with that one… we had a bit of an emergency situation with a big fat bumblebee who was hanging around in the flowers that decided to hitch a ride in Emily’s beautiful long hair and come along in the car…. let’s just say Emily was a little startled when she discovered Mr. Bumblebee.  Holy moly….  haha!  But Emily’s a trooper and she survived!  Lol…

Meanwhile we do have some behind the scenes from our day – not of the bee but of the bee-yoo-tee.  See what I did there?  First with the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:

Here are a couple more where we explored and took advantage of textures and architecture on campus:

Emily

Framed nicely with the full length shot!

Here’s some more behind the scenes fun from the YouTube Live replay:

And now with the close up…

Emily

Emily being exceptional indeed!

At this point after a delicious vegan lunch at The Lunch Room where our Lacey met up with us as well we headed back to the studio in West Bloomfield to get a couple more photos including some focus on volleyball – and this next photo is LIT….  We usually play with fire on the black backdrop but this one on the grey is just awesome

Emily

A great one to finish on!  So as you can see there was plenty of evidence of Emily being exceptional and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!
