BASSICALLY we love Meg and this session – it’s true. What a sweetheart and a multiple threat! A student athlete, a musician, beautiful on the inside and out, smart and nice. The whole package, and we really enjoyed a wonderful day with her and her mom Carolyn in Birmingham! Let’s get to the highlights!
BASSICALLY we love Meg!
Our conditions were awesome and the backlight on this first photo is perfect!
We also played around with some studio photos by the way before we headed outdoors – here’s a little fun behind the scenes from those with some tennis flavor from Instagram:
Sydney is our latest spokesmodel for the class of 2022! She’s a legacy here – the younger sis of Jeremy who had an epic senior session a couple years ago, and she’s a survivor – a real survivor (more on that to come this summer) – an inspiring and beautiful young lady! We’re honored to have her representing our studio and we had a fun and fabulous day outdoors with parents Stacy & Jason! Let’s get to some highlights shall we?
Spokesmodeling with Sydney!
All the highlights here are outdoors in West Bloomfield, but our seniors have the option for photographs in the studio as well as on location for their sessions!
That’s Sydney at the WB library – we use that location a lot! Just chillin’ and being cute!
Next we headed over to one of our favorite nature preserves…
We also have some fun behind the scenes from this one from Facebook Live:
Wardrobe! Time for an outfit change…
We knew that would be a winner when we took it – the dress, the log, the flowers, and Sydney looks so pretty!!! We also have more behind the scenes with this outfit from Instagram Live:
We had some major league moments indeed on this senior session with Matthew! He’s a legacy since we had his sister Abby here for her senior pics and we’ve known his dad Jeff going wayyyyy back… Matthew is a great kid and we had a great time in Birmingham with him and his mom Dana – we knew we would! Let’s get to some highlights!
Major League Moments with Matthew
All these photos were taken in Birmingham – some in the city and some at Quarton Lake. We’ll start downtown!
We think he looks JUST like his dad… hehe…
Of course we have some fun behind the scenes first from Facebook:
And here’s another urban pic:
Looking good! And if you think by looking at these that he comes off as a genuinely good dude with a real smile you’d be right. Just a great kid to hang out with.
At this point we headed over to the park to enjoy the great outdoors…
Here’s a little more behind the scenes action this time from Instagram:
We have known Sedona since she was a baby and this is at least the third time she’s been on our blog! She’s beautiful, smart, funny, snarky, and we are smitten with her senior session!!! She was a spokesmodel for us this year for Walled Lake Northern and we were excited to get her in front of Ally’s camera once again! Her mom Rachel who is one of our dear friends joined us for a fun day in Detroit, so let’s get to some highlights!
Smitten With Sedona
We actually spent the entire session on Belle Isle which has so many amazing spots to photograph, and this was the first time we headed to Sunset Point for this awesome shot of Sedona against the Detroit skyline!
We also have some fun behind the scenes first from Facebook LIVE:
Next we headed over to the red bridge for this stunner…
Moving around the island we stopped in at the conservatory and here’s a little video from Instagram…
And at that point we headed over to the covered bridge for a few:
We love that spot, but this next one was almost an afterthought – one of those “hang on – go stand by that tree” photos that we hadn’t planned on. It turned out to be the last photo of the day and it’s outstanding…
Do you see? Do you see why we’re smitten with Sedona’s session? We’re just smitten with Sedona period – love this girl, and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day with her!
Frameable Faces Photography
Frameable Faces Photography is a small biz retail mom & pop shop of Doug&Ally Cohen located in the Orchard Mall in West Bloomfield, Michigan, United States Of America!
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!
Birmingham was the spot – Quarton Lake specifically, so let’s get to some pics:
Not to be taken too literally or seriously, this title (referring to a cheer with a long history) refers to how chilly it was the day we went outside to photograph Maddie’s spokesmodel session and how COOL calm and collected Maddie was despite the cold! Maddie is another Walled Lake Northern Knight and the other nights were both indoor sessions, so we (okay I) really wanted outdoor photos. And despite me ruining my shoes by stepping in a mud puddle and the wind blowing over a tripod and breaking a photo umbrella I’m still glad we did it, because the photos are great Indeed, and well, dang it it’s SUPPOSED to be warmer by now! So yes, it’s cold out here, there must be some Maddie in the atmosphere! Haha…
Maddie in the atmosphere
Maddie’s mom Lisa joined us for the day and we actually started in the studio – we haven’t featured much of our fun furniture yet for the class of 2020 so we wanted to get some of that done too. So even though the setup was all about the outdoor shots, let’s start with the studio:
So adorable!!! We call that chair “The Throne” and Maddie rocks it with the yellow top on the white backdrop!
Next we moved to the black couch with the black backdrop and we fired up a livestream on Facebook for some fun behind the scenes! Take a look:
And the result:
Now let’s get to those outdoor pics! They really came out great and this is typical in that many of our seniors will do a combination of studio and on location photos during their session.
So cute! And we also have more behind the scenes fun from the livestream we did on Instagram:
And we’ll leave you with one of those as our last image for now:
So pretty! And there you have it – it was cold out here but it was because Maddie was in the atmosphere! We hope you enjoyed the highlights!
