Sharer Design Group – Commercial Photography – Plymouth, MI

We worked with Sharer Design Group to capture their remodeling magic in this Plymouth home. They transformed the kitchen to create this modern, fresh space for the family to hang out, cook, and eat. We love the cool blues paired with the whites and grays. Let’s take a look!

Arby’s – Commercial Photography – Redford, MI

We stopped by an Arby’s in Redford, MI to take some shots of the exterior for a commercial shoot. It’s a super modern building covered with windows for natural lighting inside. The restaurant’s exterior is also consistent with Arby’s red and white color scheme. Check it out!

The Chair-iot – Commercial Photography – Canton, MI

The Chair-iot is a company that created a more efficient way of lugging around folding chairs. Whether you’re going to a sporting event, an outdoor concert venue, or other fun outdoor activities, The Chair-iot makes everything easier. The carrier is on wheels, making it much easier to transport on grass, dirt, gravel – you name it! The vinyl on the carrier is weather resistant to protect everything inside. There are also two drink holders for your convenience, and a small storage pocket for your valuables. We took some shots of the carrier, chair, and the many items that can fit inside! Take a look at how much this carrier can hold…and don’t forget about the wheels!

The Chair-iot and all it can hold.

Sharer Design Group – Commercial Photography – Plymouth, MI

We stopped by a home in Plymouth to capture a newly renovated kitchen by Sharer Design Group. It’s a simple kitchen with white as the main color, covering most surfaces, and wooden floors, clear light fixtures, a blue oven, and two blue cabinets with overhead lights. It has a retro feel and we’re excited to share the final product with you. Be sure to check out all the little details in the photos below!

We love the contrast of the blue oven with the white walls, cabinetry, and tiled back splash.

On the other side of the kitchen is a cute nook for the microwave, which makes for more counter space – the dream! Also, notice the blue cabinets showcasing clear glasses.

A look at the kitchen from a different angle. Check out the paneled white ceiling and the retro, modern light!

A look at the entire kitchen, featuring a large cabinet for extra storage.

We really love this sink with built-in drying racks and a convenient hole for the colander!

The top rack can be switched out with a panel (left part of sink), which makes for even more counter space and added convenience.

Altran – Event Photography – Wixom, MI

We joined Altran for the grand opening of their Wixom location and Passive Safety Center! The company held a special ribbon-cutting event to introduce their new location, and the Passive Safety Center will be used to simulate and run texts for vehicle safety. Fellow Altran employees from all over the world joined for this special event. Key people in the company shared some of their own thoughts and advice to those who came to celebrate. There was a tour of the new facility, including the indoor track they use for testing.

Altran is a leader in engineering technology, as well as research and development. They work with what seems to be an endless array of industries including automotive, railways, infrastructure, aeronautics, and space. They’re a worldwide company headquartered in Paris, France.

Many people showed up to welcome the Wixom location to the Altran family. There were Altran goodies given away, yummy food for the tasting, some champagne to ring in the opening, speeches, touring, and networking galore! It was an exciting opening for everyone involved and we captured the night shot by shot.

Here are a few of the headshots taken at the grand opening.

Livonia Chamber – Event Photography – Livonia, MI

We attended the Livonia Chambers Connecting Cultures event in Livonia. It was a beautiful celebration of the many cultures that create us and bring business together. We captured the event from beginning to end and we’re excited to share some of our favorites with you! While at the event, there were speakers from five different generations offering their opinions, perspectives, and thoughts on the same issue. It was interesting to hear the varying answers in comparison to when the person had been born and the times they had lived through. It was a wonderful networking event that discussed the combination of businesses and cultures in this day and age.

Etowah Avenue – Real Estate Photography – Royal Oak, MI

We did a shoot for a home on Etowah Avenue in Royal Oak, Michigan. It was a beautiful home with wood floors on the main floor, a carpeted second floor, and spacious basement. The master bedroom not only had a gorgeous bathroom (jetted tub, glass shower, granite vanity) but a good size walk-out balcony, as well. We love the aesthetics of this home – very warm tones, stone accents, and white trimming. We hope you enjoy checking out the photos from the shoot as much as we enjoyed shooting!

We love the large window facing the front yard and the beautiful double doors.

What a beautiful room – the wood floors, twin windows on either side of the fireplace, and the fireplace itself! Gorgeous!

The opposite view in the front room is the chocolate brown staircase and front door.

The half bath on the first floor.

This kitchen is to-die-for with it’s chocolate brown cabinetry, abundance of counter space, and island with bar stools.

The master bedroom. Who knew a bathroom could be beautiful?!

Check out this balcony!

The only thing better than a walk-out balcony is a walk-in closet.

The super spacious basement…it even has a bathroom!

Fieldstone – Farmington Hills Real Estate Photography

Tuesday morning, racing to beat the eventual rain, we started off bright and early in Farmington Hills.

 

Listed by Earl Newman, this Fieldstone home is right off of the intersection of Twelve Mile and Middlebelt. A 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home with a detached 2-car garage, it also features a front space on the main floor which can be used as an office, sitting room, or library. The patio in the backyard is surrounded by tall trees, creating an air of privacy from neighboring houses and the main road that runs behind the home, which also provide nice scenery and add to the landscaping.

IMG_7025-Edit

The front of the home, with plenty of trees and flowers to set it apart from neighboring houses.

 

The master bedroom has an attached walk-in closet for extra storage, vanity and powder area, and bathroom complete with a bathtub, glass door shower, and double sink. The bedroom itself has a double window that looks out onto the street, and is very vibrant and warm.

IMG_7103

The master bathroom, with the stand-up glass door shower and full bathtub. The bathroom is connected to a walk-in closet and smaller powder area and is inside the master bedroom.

 

The remaining two bedrooms share a large bathroom in the hallway, and are plenty spacious and bright for children, guests, offices, and more.

One of the other bedrooms on the second floor.

 

Many of the house’s features are very modern, including kitchen and bathroom sinks, and lighting. The granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and lightly stained cabinets and floor give the kitchen a bright and new look. The kitchen and small dining area also have an island in the center that has a power outlet perfect for an on-the-go morning, and sliding glass door that leads into the backyard.

IMG_7042-Edit

The kitchen, which is bordered on the left by a small dining area and the full living room (not pictured), and on the right by a fuller dining room, that attaches to a sitting area. The kitchen also walks out onto the back patio via a sliding glass door.

 

The home also has a larger dining room for hosting company, just off the kitchen and connected to the sitting room.

IMG_7029-Edit

The full dining room and sitting area, which is located at the front of the house just off the foyer.

 

There is also a larger living room with a peaked ceiling and fireplace, overlooking the backyard, perfect for lounging around on rainy or snowy days all year round. Especially since the weather this summer has been anything but predictable.

Highland Drive – Novi Real Estate Photography

On June 24, we went out to Novi again for another real estate shoot. The home, a high-ceiling, 2,264 sq. foot home listed by Joy Montgomery of Montgomery Hill Realty, is for sale at $275,000.

IMG_6938

The exterior of the home, which is landscaped.

 

With high ceilings that culminate in a point just above the garage on the left side of the house, the home was architecturally beautiful and fun to photograph, providing for some interesting vertical shots in places you would least expect, like the foyer or the bathrooms.

2015-06-30_0001

The foyer (left), with a mirrored coat closet, which opens up into a sitting room (not pictured), a kitchen (shown at right), dining area, and a hallway which leads upstairs and into the larger living room

 

The home is very open, and is much larger than it appears on the outside due to the floor plan. The natural lighting provides for a nice glow throughout the home, regardless of the time of day, especially in the master bedroom, which is large and L-shaped, with two large windows overlooking the street.

2015-06-30_0002

The bathroom, which attaches to the master bedroom on one side (left), and to the hallway on the other (right). The bathroom is separated by a door in the middle.

 

The main level is perfect for entertaining company, with plenty of space to host in either sitting room, the dining area, or the larger living room. The backyard is bordered by trees on the back side and has a patio area just off the main living room, with sliding glass doors to get in and out.

IMG_6946

Just off the kitchen and foyer, another great sitting room that overlooks the backyard.

 

All in all, nothing felt cramped, and moving around the house (even with a bunch of photo equipment in your hands) was easy and manageable. The house is painted in very light, neutral and calming colors, giving the place an easy and home-y feel.

IMG_6977
