Rikki In The City – Splendid Spokesmodeling For The Class Of 2022!

Rikki in the city doesn’t rhyme, but it has a ring to it, and this session should ring out across Frameable Faces nation!!!  Hehe….  it really was fabulous.  We’re off to a darn good start with our class of 2022 crew and this was a session of firsts for us.  A couple new spots for us in particular that we really love!

As for this senior-to-be we really love her too – she’s a Bloomfield Hills Blackhawk like our kids were, and her mom Lauren is North Farmington Raider just like me and Ally were!  Rikki is a delight and she slayed the game as we say on this session in Detroit, so let’s get to the highlights!

Rikki In The City

We started at the DIA – people were out taking photos and everyone was happy and friendly!  Here’s a highlight:

Rikki

As always we have some fun behind the scenes action from the session – first from Facebook Live:

Shortly after and an outfit change later we found new spot #1 – we took a different route than usual and noticed this amazing wall – LOVE it!

Rikki

Okay Rikki is adorable.  This girl is going to change the world… and we have more behind the scenes fun this time from Instagram Live

Next we headed to a grungy alley and by this time you could say we were smokin’….

Rikki

Last but not least it’s another new spot for us – a random friendly dude pointed us to a bench down a path by the water and voila!

Rikki

Beautiful!!!  That’s a good one to end on for now, although the TikTok is pretty cool too…..okay we’ll add it:

Mashana is 50 and FABULOUS – and So Is Her Crew!

Mashana is a dynamo.  An extrovert with a huge infectious personality, she came to us with some ideas for her 50th birthday and what a time we had with her and her crew!  Or should we say her crews!  She brought the fam and she brought her girls for some BFF pics – oh and she had a massive “50” delivered to the studio for the session too which we highly recommend YOU do.  So much fun!

Mashana is 50 and Fabulous!

We started with a few of the fam so we’ll share one of those first:

GREAT looking family!

Next up here’s one with Mashana and hubby Chris!

Mashana

These two don’t lack for style…. power couple!

Here’s a fun TikTok from the session – make sure you’re following us there!  Check out the masked mademoiselles and little man’s smile (the arrow points it out)!!!

@frameablefacesAwesome bday session w/fam & friends!💗 #Birthday #Family #Friends #photography #portraits #ThisIs50 #MetroDetroit #FrameableFaces #Masks #Photoshoot

Kamari Kicks It Off For The Class Of 2022 Spokesmodels!

Kamari kicks it off in style in these highlights from our first high school senior spokesmodel session for the rising class of 2022!  If you know us at all you know how giddy with excitement we get around this time of year.  Yes we’re starting a little later than our pre-pandemic schedule, but the craziness of the last year has us even more ready than usual to be photographing seniors again (if that’s possible)!

Meanwhile Kamari is not a stranger to Ally’s camera – she was here when she was little for family portraits (wow has our blog come a long way since then…haha) with her parents Jahmal and Kimberly and big brother (and former Frameable senior) Jaden!  

Kamari Kicks It Off

Kamari will be a senior at Mercy High School this fall and she is completely adorable just as she’s always been.  We started with just a pic or two in the studio before we headed out on location.  Many of our senior sessions include both studio and location photos… here’s a simple one on the white background.

Kamari Kicks

Yasss – the first 2022 senior photo!

Okay let’s head outside where Kamari continued to slay the game….

Kamari Kicks

Oooh one of our fave spots at Quarton Lake!  We also have a little fun behind the scenes action from Facebook!  Make sure you’re following us there! 

Next Kamari broke out the hoodie – how cute is she?

Kamari Kicks

We also have some more behind the scenes this time from Instagram Live – make sure you’re following us there too!  Just make sure you’re following us everywhere…. links are below at the end or up at the top of the website!

We’ll leave you with this one for now……until Kamari returns for her senior session!

Kamari Kicks

That could be our fave…. hard to say – they’re all fantastic!  When Kamari kicks it off she does it in style!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights from our day with her and we can’t wait to photograph and share more seniors from the class of 2022!  Book your session now!

Alexandra is BACK and She’s ONE and She’s ADORABLE!

One year sessions are so much fun – especially when it’s with a one year old who we’ve been photographing since she was born!  Alexandra was the last baby we photographed before the pandemic hit us with lockdowns and she was back for her 6 month too, so to have her back was really such a joy!

Alexandra Is Back

OMG.

Alexandra Is Back

So much personality coming through in these photos!!!  How cute is she…

We also have a little behind the scenes fun of course from Facebook as Alexandra got a little reading and play time going…  

…and here’s one from the blanket:

Alexandra Is Back

Haha – she’s having so much fun!

And we’ll leave you with one more from the wooden floor…

Alexandra Is Back

And there you have it – she’s growing up and we’re loving being a part of it!!!!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of Alexandra’s one year session!

A Few Of Doug and Ally’s Recent Appearances!

We have had some wonderful opportunities lately to appear on a few different shows on the Internet as well as local TV and we thought we should gather a few of them in one place here on the blog! 

Appearances

Doug & Ally’s Recent Appearances!

Let’s start with the one Ally and I appeared together on which was on Fox 2 Detroit in a segment about how to take a great selfie for dating sites!  This one was pretty fun…

 

Next I appeared on my friend Rachel Moore’s livestream show Social Glue which airs on LinkedIn & YouTube ever week and covers all things social media with weekly news (which in the social media world can be like a month haha).

 

And last but not least here is my recent appearance on the Civic Center TV Megacast to discuss M10 Social and how businesses are adjusting and can adjust to the need for more of an online presence in the pandemic!  Give it a watch:

 

We hope you enjoy these appearances and there are actually more to come!!!

The Crying Baby In The Window Grows Up And Has His Bar Mitzvah!

Time sure flies… 
 
So if you’ve been in the Orchard Mall you’ve undoubtedly noticed the crying baby in the window of our studio – it’s impossible not to and that photo has provided many a smile and a laugh to a passerby over the past decade-plus…
 
Crying Baby
Well that little crying baby is our nephew Gabe, and Gabe hit the milestone of his Bar Mitzvah this past Fall!  Like many events that were scheduled for 2020 there were many adjustments that had to be made on the fly – in Gabe’s case a postponement and then a scaling back that may have bummed out and even broken a “lesser man”, but Gabe took it in stride and didn’t let a crappy year dim his shine!  With a little creativity and a lot of hard work it was still an event to remember.  I know we always will!
 

The Crying Baby Grows Up

 
Just look at this dude:
 
That pic sums it up, but we have plenty more highlights to share, taken by our awesome event photographer Angela!
 
Gabe’s service was immediate family only.  BUT…. everyone was still “there” not only on zoom but in the form of cutouts like you see at sporting events!!!  They filled the sanctuary and I (Doug) grabbed this panorama with my iPhone of the scene!
 
How cool is that?  This was a surprise for Gabe – just one of many ways his parents Stacy and Jason made it special for him (cutouts by Winning Imprints)!
 
Here is the man at the bimah with the Torah!
 
After a small outdoor “tailgate” in the parking lot with a few masked and distanced family members we headed back to the house for a very small get together, with all of Gabe’s favorite foods!
 
Gotta love the special edition Gabriel gear!  Hoodies by MyLocker.net in Detroit!  We even had Gabriel masks!
 
Yum!  Cookies by Sweet Hart’s Cookie Co.!
 
Here’s Gabe with his fam!
 
….and here is one below with his cousins!  That’s our Lacey & Tony with Gabe, Lindsay and Sam!
 
And we’ll leave you with this one of the man of the day and his pup Hazel!
 
And there you have it – a fabulous day full of nachas for Gabe’s Bar Mitzvah!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of that amazing day!

Ty Didn’t Let 2020 Spoil The Celebration Of His Bar Mitzvah!

Ty is a great kid and like many youngsters he had to adapt a celebration to the times that we’re in.  2020 was a challenging year for everybody but you wouldn’t know it spending time with this dude for his bar mitzvah which took place several months ago!  This was the second time around with a mitzvah for us with this family so let’s goooo!

Bar Mitzvah Celebration 2020 Style

First let’s take a couple peaks at the session that Ally did with Ty ahead of time for some cutouts to put in the backyard for the scaled back outdoor gathering they had planned.  Ty is a multi-sport athlete so we covered all the bases (pun intended) on a great day with his mom Angela!  Let’s start with football…

Celebration

Stud!

Now from gridiron to pitch…. soccer!

Celebration

Pretty cool huh?  Next we got him “throwing that speedball by ya” as Springsteen would say…

Celebration

And last but not least Ty just being Ty…

Celebration

Good lookin’ kid.

Fast forward to the big day and our event photographer Angela who captured these next few…

Celebration

Gorgeous family!

They had the service outside at the temple:

Celebration

Love that pic with proud parents Angela and Danny looking on…!

And we’ll leave you with this one from the backyard with the dunk tank!  No pandemic was going to steal ALL the fun!

Celebration

HAHAHAHA!!!  How great is that?

And there you have it – highlights of what STILL was a great celebration!  We hope you enjoyed these!

Let These Recent Seniors With Family Members Make You Smile!

Through it all – through this challenging school year we still had a fantastic “part 1” of the Class of 2021 senior pictures!  We say “part 1” because there are always a few spring seniors and we figure there may be a few more than usual this year (fingers crossed) because 2020 was……..2020. 

Generally when we post highlights of our sessions we focus on the senior but we do have family add-ons available and sometimes family members – maybe just a sib or a parent or a pet jumps in, so we thought we’d gather a handful of these and give them their own blog post!  Lots of love in these images!!!

Seniors have Frameable Family Members!

No commentary – just family!  We LOVE these peeps!

Family Members Family Members Family Members

And there you have it!  Wonderful families we’ve enjoyed spending time with over the past year!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights!

A Maddie Takeover in Detroit for Senior Pictures!

We had a Maddie takeover in the D!  You’ve seen Maddie on this blog before as a spokesmodel representing Mercy High School for the senior class of 2021 and her return was epic!  Yes it was a little cold but we literally had downtown Detroit to ourselves early on this particular Saturday morning and we made the most of it! 

Maddie Takeover In The D

We started over by the Fox Theater which is appropriate since Maddie is into theater herself!  Check it out:

Maddie Takeover

Cool huh?  She’s a box office star to be…

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

Next we headed over to The Belt which was also empty and got this photo:

Maddie Takeover

Okay she’s adorable.

Next stop: the DIA!

Maddie Takeover

Love it!

We have more behind the scenes too – this time from Instagram:

And there you have it!  A great one to close out the year 2020.  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our Maddie takeover in Detroit!
