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!

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!
