Union Partners – Event Photography – Comerica Park Picnic – Detroit, Michigan

We joined Union Partners at Comerica Park for the Tigers’ last home game of the season to capture their employee picnic. It was a blast shooting this event! Union Partners is an investment company that creates relationships with its partners who work in the metals and logistics industry. This event brought together their partners from the different companies for a day dedicated just to them – an employee celebration! Employees brought their families, there was a buffet of yummy food, face painting, and they enjoyed watching some baseball. It was a great time for everyone! Here are some highlights from the day.

They had hats and other goodies made with company logos.

Eileen Harryvan Headshot Photography – Plymouth, Michigan Studio

Recently, Eileen Harryvan hopped into the studio for a headshot photography shoot with us! Eileen works for Active Regeneration, as an independent BEMER distributor. Eileen came to the shoot prepared with different outfits to try out. This is always a good idea, as it gives you more looks to choose from. As you can see below, she simply threw on a blazer and it changed her look dramatically, giving her strong, respectable, and professional presence. The outfit really does matter in your headshot!

Kernway Street Real Estate Photography – Bloomfield Hills, Michigan

We had the pleasure of shooting a classic colonial home for sale on Kernway in Bloomfield Hills, MI. The house has four bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a finished basement. The rest of the house has hardwood floors, and most of the walls are painted an array of grays that gives off a home-y, comfortable feel. The white borders and accents around the house are a stark contrast from the gray but gives the home a classic vibe. If you walk through the sliding glass door to the backyard, you will find a brick patio and extra privacy thanks to the surrounding trees. This house is ready to be a home, all it needs is you!

Phil Bahr Compass Luncheon Event Photography – Livonia, Michigan

Every first Thursday of the month Compass hosts a luncheon for Christians who work in the business industry to come together in Southeast Michigan. It’s a wonderful networking event that offers a place for people to connect and listen to powerful speakers. In the past, Chuck Gaidica spoke at a luncheon.

The last luncheon took place on Thursday, September 6th, and we were there to capture some shots from the event. Phil Bahr, president of the Ashes to Glory Foundation, was introduced as speaker by his son, Scott Bahr. Ashes to Glory is a non-profit organization that gives financial assistance to those who are seeking help for their addiction and would like to try professional Christian therapy. Phil and his wife, Dawn, founded the Ashes to Glory Foundation after rescuing their son from addiction. From this journey, they thought of the idea for Ashes to Glory and have been helping those who struggle with addiction to become clean again.

The scholarships given from Ashes to Glory assist individuals and families in therapy, residential stay for a minimum of 90 days, extended care programs for after release, and individual and family counseling to help rebuild homes that have been broken by addiction.

Next month’s Compass luncheon will be on Thursday, October 4th. We invite you to join us!

Park Forest Apartments Photography – Dearborn Heights, Michigan

Benchmark Management asked us to shoot the Park Forest Apartments on Warren Road in Dearborn Heights, MI. We took some shots of the inside of the club house (we are gushing!), as well as the pool area and some exterior shots of the complex. The interior of the club house is amazing: entirely wood floors, marbled kitchen counters, a stone fireplace, and an open floor plan. It’s an apartment renter’s dream to have a nice clubhouse and pool for entertaining guests!

N. Main Street Real Estate Photography – Milford, Michigan

We had quite a busy summer! We were asked by Realtor Heather Stevens, who works for Keller Williams, to shoot a quaint property in Milford, MI. A little blue house with white trimming and a detached garage sits right on N. Main Street. The landscaping in the backyard makes for a cute and quaint hideaway with a wooden patio, slanted green hills with stones decorating most open spaces, and plenty of room for shrubbery or flowers. There’s also a large yard that’s perfect for family events, children, or pets! Inside the house are wood floors, an open living room and kitchen, and a recently renovated bathroom (take a look below – wow!). The kitchen cabinetry, tiled backsplash, and stainless steel appliances are in good condition and give the kitchen a modern yet home-y feel. On the exterior of the house is a little door that leads to extra storage space, which is always a plus!
