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!
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!
This summer we worked with Hamerink Dental to photograph their office, take professional headshots of the employees, and snap some professional (and fun!) group photos. The staff includes Dr. Howard Hamerink, Dr. John Hamerink, two dental hygienists, two dental assistants, and a business administrator. Hamerink Dental is located in Downtown Plymouth, MI.
We worked with Dr. Sisk of the Wellness Center of Plymouth and Pain Solutions of Plymouth to create videos that highlight their use of innovative technology and human touch to treat their patients. Each of these videos hones in on a different kind of treatments offered, all of which are non-medicinal. We know it sounds too good to be true, but you will have to find out for yourself! Their services include pulse electromagnetic field therapy, laser therapy, chiropractic care, massage and detoxification, pain relief, nutrition help, and weight loss. Another shock? It’s all pain-free! How can that be? Don’t ask us. Check out the Wellness Center of Plymouth for yourself!
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!
We stopped by The Union at Dearborn for a Google Business Tour. The Union at Dearborn is an apartment complex in close proximity to the University of Michigan-Dearborn and Henry Ford Community College, which makes it a popular place for college students to reside. The Union offers a variety of amenities, including a 24-hour fitness center, a 24-hour marketplace, a sand volleyball court, night patrol, and laundry facilities. They also offer a wide variety of floor plans. A GBV Tour is a fantastic tool for showing potential residents what The Union and it’s amenities are like without ever stepping foot on the property. People can virtually explore the grounds of The Union to see if it’d be a good fit for them. Check out the tour below or Google The Union at Dearborn!
In addition to the Google tour we made an overlay for their tour which adds the functionality of a text menu and hotspots. When you click on the hotspots, in this tour a small text popup with more information will appear. You can also add photo or video to hotspots. Here’s the tour with the overlay below.
Ken McMullen, strategist for Thrivent Financial, recently came in for a business portrait shoot. Thrivent Financial is a fraternal benefit society, which means they are a not-for-profit organization, that has over two million members. Not only does Thrivent Financial offer a variety of financial services and insurances, but they bring together Christians to help strategize financial plans to fit their lives right now and in the future. Thrivent Financial also raises money to help with volunteer work and wonderful causes, one of which is a mission to collect $1 million to help those affected by Hurricane Florence. Ken started working for Thrivent in 2013 to assist with their business development. Earlier in 2018, he became a regional community engagement strategist, and the new position called for a brand new portrait!
This past summer, we had a personal headshot session for Aida Dismondy. Aida founded Albex Law, P.C., a business law firm that works with small to mid-sized businesses that work with the United States government or do business internationally. Aida has remained the CEO of the firm since the founding, and in a such a powerful and respectable position, a fresh and professional headshot is a must!
DeAnna Gilbert, owner and founder of Integrity Naturals, stopped in our studio for a professional headshot session. As the owner of a company that sells a variety of natural, healthy, and safe products for your skin, it’s important for DeAnna to have a headshot that showcases herself (and her skin!) in a way that looks natural and glowing. As you can see below, different lighting techniques were used to achieve different looks.
