NEW PRICING!!!

Hooray! We've changed some things around here at the studio and as a result, we've been able to actually RAISE our quality and LOWER our prices! How 'bout dem apples???

So head on over and check out the updated Frameable Faces website for some new lower pricing. And also check out our new galleries! We've added some new images to our galleries and I bet you'll know some of our beautiful frameables!

And, as usual, if you have any questions, please give us a call or shoot us an email. We'd love to talk to you, and if you're interested, we'd love to make you one of our future Frameables!

Until next time,
Ally

Wooohhhh Hoooooo!!!! Beautiful Girls!!!!





You know, that Van Halen song? Or is it just David Lee Roth? Either way, that song's been going through my head since I photographed these two. They are definitely beautiful! I've posted a few from them before, but here's the real "sneak peak."

I don't know if I could've even put a model search out that would have brought me better models than these two. A and S are so pretty and were so great in the studio. They were totally on their game and were perfect models! I was telling Doug that when we get some new props in or just need some models for some new images in the studio, A and S are at the tippy top of our list! LOVED working with them!

So, here's the real deal from their session. Enjoy the "S" sisters!!!

Until next time,
Ally

Bringing sexy back

Hey Ladies!!! (Said in my best Beastie Boys voice)

So remember when I was in Nashville and I told you all about how we were going to be bringing sexy back to Frameable Faces??? Well, I'm ready to do it! And right in time for Valentine's Day too!

But Ally, you say...I don't like the way I look! I have rolls in places that they shouldn't be, and stretch marks because I just had the baby 3 months ago (or in some cases 8 years ago!!). There's no way I'm going to pose in my skivvies and have ANYONE photograph me!

Have no fear, lovely lady!!! I promise that you'll be thrilled with the way you look in the finished images and it'll be such a great, fun time that you'll totally be bringing the sexy back to your husband/boyfriend/significant other. What an amazing Valentine's Day gift you can give yourself and to that special someone. Trust me, these sessions are a blast and will leave you feeling absolutely beautiful, empowered and SEXY!!!

So here's the deal - Book your BSB session for Valentine's Day and get a 5x7 Little Black Book and 10 images from your session for $200. What a great deal and what a RED HOT gift just in time for Valentine's day. Trust me, you WILL thank me for this! :)

Don't miss out on this opportunity. These sessions will be filling up quickly and I'm only accepting a limited amount of them so I can assure delivery in time for V Day!

Call the studio to schedule your session - 248-790-7317. And no, the session will NOT be in the studio! We have a bunch of options available and none of them include my studio! :)

Until next time,
Ally

Check it out!!!

Since we've been back from Imaging USA in Nashville, we've been busy working and trying to figure out how to make the Frameable Faces experience better for everyone. We've brought on some new products, started bringing some new ideas to the table and are taking a consultative approach to making sure that we're delivering exactly what our clients are asking for.

One of the things we've been able to do is this...we've actually dropped our prices! Yep! You read right!!! We've partnered with another lab for our larger prints and even upped our quality by doing so. The new lab has offered us much better pricing than the one we used previously and as a result, we're extending that to you, our loyal Frameables! :)

Go check out our website for some more details. We've also changed our "packages", too. Instead of being steered into a collection that doesn't exactly meet what you're looking for, we've made it much easier for you to get what you want! And we've even built in some discounts along the way!

So, no Mick Jagger! (Cue the music here!) You were completely off the mark when you said "You can't always get what you want." At Frameable Faces, you CAN get what you want! AND you can also get what you need!

Check us out and stop by and say hi! We'll have the music playing and we can promise you a great session that will definitely bring a smile to your face!!!

Until next time,
Ally

And now for something completely different...

So when we were in Nashville for the Imaging USA convention, we did a little video blogging. It took a bit of time to get it all edited and ready to publish but we finally did it. We've posted it to our Frameable Faces YouTube channel. Go check it out and make sure you check back periodically to see some of our sessions in progress, some of our vendors, and some other fun cool stuff that we have going on here at the studio. It's a great way to get to know us a little bit more and to see how much fun we have here. From some fun cool videos, to some cool interviews, even some outtakes...it's a fun place to visit on the web. And if you're feeling especially adventurous, come on up here to the studio and say hi! We're pretty fun and really nice, too!

Until next time,
Ally

I always keep my promises!


And I promised Miss A that I'd post an image of her with her yellow dress on. She initially didn't want to wear it, but persistence prevailed and she was soon donning her pretty yellow dress.

The whole session was simply stunning. A is an excellent big sister and she clearly loves her baby sister S so much! It was so sweet to watch them together! There a bunch more images to show, but I'm running out of the studio right now. Be on the look out for some new sneak peak options. They may very well be after the ordering session but I promise, it'll be SO worth the wait!

In the meantime, enjoy this little preview of A and S. Two of the most prettiest princesses to grace the Frameable Faces studio!

Until next time,
Ally

WE'RE IN NASHVILLE!!!

Ya'll (Like that? Come on! We're in the South!) know how much we love our Flip video! Our version of video blogging...enjoy a little bit of our trip. We'll post more later on today, but wanted you to see a little bit of what we've been doing. The convention center is huge, the classes for the most part have been amazing and the sites and food have been unbelievable. Check out this awesome site for some great food for your next road trip. It hasn't led us astray yet!

Off to learn about the "Ultimate photographers balancing act." Then some more information on boudoir photography, children's photography and high school seniors.

Did I mention how much I love this??!!!

Until next time,
Ally

P.S. I *think* the videos are in order. If not, you're smart! You'll be able to figure out which one's which! ;)

And we're OFF!!!!

I am beyond excited to be heading down to Nashville for the Imaging USA conference for photographers. This conference is full of information, new products, great ideas, etc. I'm so looking forward to going! Plus, I get to spend some time with a bunch of other photographers to talk about what's working and what's not in their studios.

I'm planning on taking copious notes, learning a ton of stuff and coming back to the studio on Thursday refreshed, refocused and ready to work to make 2010 the best year ever!

Make sure you check in to our YouTube channel for updates from the convention. Get to meet some of our vendors, see a bit of what it's like to be on the floor of one of the coolest venues in the photographic world!

When we get back on Thursday, I promise to post a bunch of images that I've been sorely lacking in posting! Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!! The downside of being so busy! :)

Until next time,
Ally

Frameable Faces on You Tube

Happy New Year! For those of you who haven't checked it out yet, we have added some initial content to the new Frameable Faces YouTube channel. There are three clips there for starters. Two of them are clips from sessions and one is a fun little clip of Ally training Amanda on some editing. We have had a positive initial response so this is something we are looking to continue and make a vital piece of the Frameable Faces universe. We will post clips from sessions, informative videos, testimonials (your fellow Frameables showing off their images with ideas for displaying them), "Guest appearances" from our partners, events that may happen here at the studio or at the Orchard Mall where we are located, and various other hubbub, brouhaha and maybe even the occasional ruckus ("Sir could you describe the ruckus?"). Stop by www.youtube.com/frameablefaces and check it out (and tell your friends)! Please feel free to subscribe, leave comments and let us know what you think. We are very needy and if you don't say anything we'll assume you don't like it and we'll be sad. Just kidding. But we would love to hear from you!

C ya,

Doug
