Integrity Naturals Display – Product Photography – Plymouth, MI

We worked with Integrity Naturals to photograph a display shelf of their line of skincare products. Integrity Naturals offers online ordering to anyone, but they also sell directly to other businesses. Portraying what a display shelf would look like is a fantastic idea to show current and prospective business customers what your products would look like on display in their own store. This was actually shot in the owner’s living room because of the challenge of transporting a glass shelf. So, the shot came with some challenges, but we think it turned out pretty well!

Spark Headphones – Glow vs. Non-Glow – Product Photography

We worked with Spark Headphones to photograph their Smart Glow Headphones in non-glow mode. Although the selling feature of this product is the glowing, it’s important to have photos of the product when it’s not on so customers know what it looks like. If you have a product that changes from it’s original form, it’s beneficial to have photos of your product in all of it’s forms. This allows the customer to know what to expect when purchasing the product, and can even help decide whether they order or not.

Steephollow Drive – Real Estate Photography – White Lake, MI

We recently had a real estate shoot of a ranch on Steephollow Dr. in White Lake, Michigan. The best part is the 180 degree view that you have of Tull Lake. Yes, the house is right on the lake! It has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,500 square feet of space, making it the largest property in the subdivision. The home has had many new improvements, including a roof and siding, fresh paint job inside and outside, two new furnaces, and new front landscaping. The quaint home comes with an over-sized garage, perfect for extra storage or holding a boat. Inside the house, the walls are painted a comfortable cream, and a stone fireplace stands in the middle of the open floor plan. The house was undergoing some work when we came to shoot, so excuse the tape and plastic coverings. Now, let’s check it out!

The exterior of the ranch.

The view of the lake.

The fireplace that breaks up the open floor plan. Excuse the tape and plastic covering…the house was having a makeover!

The kitchen has a nice contrast between the wood floors, stainless steel appliances, and the white cabinetry.

From this angle you can see the kitchen, the division the fireplace creates, and the sliding glass door to go out back to the lake.

Tournament Drive – Real Estate Photography – Northville, MI

We recently had a real estate shoot for a house on Tournament Drive in Northville, Michigan. We had no idea when we got there how beautiful and breathtaking it would be! The sandy-toned stone house appears castle-like when you pull up to it. With five bedrooms, four bathrooms and almost 4,300 square feet, we had a lot of great content to shoot. Take a look at the high ceilings, spa-like bathroom, open-floor layout, and exceptional backyard. Did we mention the shoe closet?! Let’s take a look inside…

The exterior of the front of the house.

The connection of the living room and kitchen, with plenty of natural light.

Check out this kitchen! From the cabinets to the back splash to the island – we are in love.

A different angle to show the connection of the kitchen and the living room.

This bathroom leaves us speechless – the glass shower, jacuzzi tub, two sinks, and tons of counter space for getting ready,

The master bedroom.

The first thing you see when you walk through the front door.

Shoe closet anyone?!

The tiled basement with doors leading into the backyard.

The back exterior of the house. Notice the large patio, great for relaxing or gathering for get togethers.

Looking out from the patio you can see the golf course just beyond the backyard.

Driving to the house you pass the stone waterfall welcoming you to the golf course.

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.

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!
