Preserve Circle West Slideshow Real Estate Video – Canton, Michigan

I had the opportunity to photograph this beautiful condo in South Canton for Jason Borregard from Clients First Realtors and used the shots to put together this informative slideshow video. The exterior of the condo is a combination of brick and stone, giving it a home-y, welcoming vibe. As soon as you walk in, you’re met with grand ceilings¬†and natural light from the large window above the front door. The kitchen has been updated with modern stainless appliances and dark mahogany cabinetry. This condo has two bedrooms (one of which has a fireplace!), two bathrooms, two half bathrooms (the dream!), and a finished basement! Don’t just read about it, though. Check out this video to see for yourself what a charming place it is!

Sharer Design Group – Commercial Photography – Livonia, MI

Sharer Design Group focuses on transforming kitchens and bathrooms into spaces their clients will love.¬†They remodeled a kitchen in a Livonia home and we were happy to capture the finished product! Let’s check it out.

From this angle, you can see the many details of the kitchen: stainless steel fridge, wood floors, dark counter top contrasting with white cabinetry, and white tile back splash.

Here’s a look at the other side of the kitchen. The stove fits with the stainless steel theme.

The double shelves are a nice touch to the remodeled kitchen.

From this angle, you can see the entire kitchen.

Because this is a smaller kitchen, they now have this large floor-to-ceiling cabinet for extra kitchen storage!

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!

Where the kitchen meets the family room, there is a glass-front cabinet featuring cool accent pieces.

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.

CertaPro Painters of Plymouth Video – Plymouth, Michigan

We recently completed an “about us” video for CertaPro Painters of Plymouth. We interviewed the franchise owner, a customer of theirs, and one of their painters to tell the story of their company. The b-roll shots included shots of the painters in action and interactions with a customer. The “before” and “after” photos of the home exterior were provided by the franchise owner. Overall, the video tells a great story of the value that Certapro Painters of Plymouth provides to their clients. Enjoy!

Domus Vita Holiday Party 2014

So, first, I have some exciting news! Today I hired an assistant! The lovely and talented Ms. Julianne Schultz. I’m looking forward to teaching her and having her help. I think it will mean great things for Starloft Photo & Video in 2015! More about her will come very soon!

Today we did portraits with Santa and on-site printing of 4×6 prints for the Domus Vita holiday party. Domus Vita provides services for developmentally disabled adults. Because of the nature of their business and privacy concerns, we aren’t able to share the portraits here on our blog, but I just wanted to share how much fun the event was! The party was held at the Italian American Banquet Center in Livonia, Michigan. There was a meal and a pretty rocking DJ. It seemed everyone had a great time, and they were able to take a printed portrait home with them as they left. Fun times.

Working with the developmentally disabled was a bit challenging at times as I was taking the photos, but it really got me thinking about how these people need so much care in the day-to-day that I think sometimes we forget how miraculous their lives are. I heard story after story as I was shooting about how “the doctors said so-and-so wouldn’t live past age 10” or “she’s been a patient of ours for 19 years.” It made me remember just how amazing all of our lives are and to not take our abilities for granted. Could you imagine not being able to walk or being able to hear? I can’t even begin to imagine. Be thankful today for what God has enabled you to do.
