We’ve been saying for a long time that we love Detroit. And we’ve been saying for a long time that we love Emma. So the idea of photographing Emma in Detroit seemed like a winner, and when Emma and her mom Teresa suggested heading down to the Dequindre Cut we got excited. We had read about it and seen a few photos from various Detroit blogs, but I’m here to tell you that it’s really cool having been there now first hand.
Emma is one of our spokesmodels for the class of 2016 so you may remember her spokesmodel session with us earlier in the year. She’s an incredible dancer and a smart and wonderful young lady – we’ve been proud to have her representing us. We spent this entire morning in Detroit, complete with a stop after at the Bucharest Grill for the best chicken shawarma in town, but I digress… let’s get to the photos!!!
Epic Detroit Session
We’ll start at the Dequindre Cut and we’ll stay there since we never left! So much to work with…
Love the color coordination here – Emma becomes part of the mural!
As I mentioned the Dequindre Cut is so cool and we were so excited to be down there shooting, so we captured much of our time there with behind the scenes photos and broadcasts on Periscope! Let’s take a look – first our fun behind the scenes Vine to give you an idea:

Now here is the three part replay of the live broadcasts we did that morning with Emma’s mom Teresa acting as guest host at times! She was a real trooper on a hot day after just having shoulder surgery! It goes for about 37 minutes if you’re inclined to watch, or even if you just want to watch some of it! Download the Periscope app and follow us here, and in the meantime sit back and enjoy…
Okay let’s get back to a few more photos shall we?
Commissioned graffiti and murals all over the place with people jogging, walking, biking…
More color matching with Emma’s blue going together with the blue behind her!
We’ll leave you with one more of Emma truly reppin’ the D with the Detroit vs. Everybody shirt!
So there it is – an EPIC Detroit session indeed with one of our all time faves! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our morning in the D!!!
