High School Seniors Rock the Dress Model Photos – 2015

We had a blast last weekend with our high school senior models rocking their dresses at this gorgeous property in Oakland Township, Michigan.  From sequins to sandals and even cowgirl boots, these ladies definitely brought their own style and personality to help us create these unique senior pictures.  While some were more casual, others brought their edgy side to this fun high school photo session.

Rock the Dress 2015!

Indian Wedding Destination Photography in Chicago with Munu and Hemal

Earlier this month we had the absolute pleasure of doing Chicago wedding photography to shoot Munu and Hemal’s traditional Indian wedding celebrations. Festivities began with the couple’s grahshanti ceremonies followed by Hemal’s mendhi ceremony where she received some gorgeous henna work.

Day two of this joyous occasion was centered around the sangeet ceremony at the stunning Medinah Country Club. Munu and Hemal enjoyed over 20 performances from their very talented family and friends. The wide array of presentations was spectacular to witness and even more phenomenal to photograph.

Our third and final day with Munu and Hemal was spent on their wedding ceremony. You have to love all the color and beautiful clothes and with the three days Hemal really got to look beautiful in her many different sarees. Munu found himself having a few wardrobes as well, she wasn’t the only one who got to have all the fun.

Watching them smile, catching glimpses of eachother, hold hands and sweet things like that were so beautiful. They really did enjoy being together even when we had so many family wedding photos to do. Looking at her smile, I would wager that even Munu would say all the waiting for her was worth it.

We  finally got to do the beautiful Olivia’s senior photo session at the stunning Cranbrook.  She is such a natural in front of the camera and so easy to work with that we didn’t want the shoot to end.  This young fashionista has a classic look with Parisian flair.

Family Portraits In Lake Orion, Michigan with the Franey family

Rustic family photos are definitely fun to shoot but they were especially so with the Franey family.  This adventurous, fun-loving foursome has an affinity for the outdoors and everything active.  This made our Lake Orion, Michigan farm the perfect setting for their family barn pics.  While Lisa and Brian snuggled up for their couple photo with an antique truck, their girls were enjoying running and playing in the grass for their photos in a field.  Thank you Franey clan for allowing us to capture such beautiful, candid pictures of your lovely family.

Michigan family portrait session in Rochester with the Boyd family

Last month we photographed an awesome Michigan family portrait session in Rochester, the Boyds! We’ve known their family for a while now, as their daughter Katryna participated in our Senior Model program last year. We were excited to photograph her whole family, just like we were excited to photograph her! We met them in Rochester and got right down to business.

Viviano Flowers shoot on our farm

We’ve had a great relationship with Viviano Flowers for years, and collaborating on projects with them always produces great results. They needed some new photographs for marketing material, so we loved the opportunity to do that for them. We did the shoot at our farm property in Orion, Michigan. The shoot was centered around Prom, and will be used in advertising their corsages and boutonnieres. Of course, we jumped at the chance to put our Arising Models into good use! Kyra and Savannah showed up with enthusiasm and of course, looking beautiful.

The guys were giving them a run for their money in their sharp tuxes!



We need to give a special, huge thanks to the guy you see below, Brian, who jumped in the day of the shoot, because one of our male models came down with strep! Talk about a curveball. But he jumped right in not knowing anyone, and I think you’ll agree with us: he’s a natural.


Viviano always does an amazing job with their flower arrangements, and this time was no different. They easily complimented the formal wear and gave their outfits the beautiful pop that everyone expects from their corsage or boutonniere.





What a great shoot this was, and we appreciate everyone who took the time to come help us out! And of course, a huge thanks to Viviano for being a great working partner and always delivering a great, quality product.

Kaplunov Wedding Photography at Cranbrook

A few weeks back, we got to share a very special day with Sam and Sarah. We absolutely loved this wedding. From the beautiful family, the kind guests, to the gorgeous reception details, everything was perfect. It was the kind of wedding that makes us love our job even more. They tied the knot at the Cranbrook house, where Sarah graduated from. We always love shooting at Cranbrook, so it felt like home for us. The garden was in full bloom, and combined with the historical architecture of the buildings, we were able to capture some great photographs.

With all the wedding festivities being in the same place, we were able to take full advantage of everything the Cranbrook grounds had to offer. The ceremony was so sweet and got the family involved, which we always love!

Kaplunov Ceremony

For the reception, we headed to a different part of the grounds where a stunning indoor/outdoor tent was set up. The tent gave it a backyard feel, but the amazing decor left us in awe of the elegance of it all. We’re so happy that Sam and Sarah chose us for their big day! To say we enjoyed ourselves is an understatement. We sure do love this couple and wish them the absolute best in their future together.

Engagement session at our farm with Kyle and Mariana

Back in May, we had the privilege of photographing a beautiful couple, Kyle and Mariana. These two are about as perfect for each other as they come! They wanted casual and romantic engagement photos, so our farm property in Lake Orion, Michigan was the perfect backdrop for this perfect couple. They were able to get great engagement photos in Southeast Michigan, but it felt like we were a million miles away. These two really like each other; they smiled and laughed but most of all their eyes told us.




We loved our time with this couple! They were so funny and kind, and just look at the way they look at each other. What’s not to love?!



This couple was up for anything, from sitting in the grass to leaning on an ol’ rusty pickup truck. Taking advantage of the sunny day and warm weather hit the spot for this engagement picture session on the farm!




We’re so excited to photograph their Palazzo Grande wedding this year! It’s been a joy and an honor to work with these two, and we look forward to our future with them!


You had better check back with us soon, because with these two in the photos, you know they’ll be absolutely amazing.

Paris Inspired Senior Pictures with Hannah

We first met Hannah at Rock the Dress last year and we are so happy that she’s now a part of our model team! Hannah is a junior at Stevenson High School. She enjoys running Cross-Country and Track, shopping and spending time with friends. Hannah has many accomplishments in high school! She earned the Academic All-County for Cross Country and she’s also very involved in her student council. Apparently she’s very talented at making her room look cleaner than it actually is and you’ll never guess who told us that funny piece of information!

Here’s what Hannah had to say about being an Arising Images Senior Model: “When I first met Chelsea, Prem, and some of the models, I knew that this was going to be an amazing experience with amazing people! I can’t wait to have so much fun with all of the shoots and the fashion show, not to mention getting to know the other models!”

Can I just say how amazing this girl is? She’s honestly one of the biggest troopers we’ve ever met! She injured herself when running, but didn’t let that stop her from coming to her model session and totally killing it in the studio! Not only that, but she unfortunately re-injured herself in the same place as before right before our Senior Model Fashion Show and you guessed it… That didn’t stop her from walking the runway in front of hundreds of people! Not many people are as brave and bold as Hannah is and I doubt anyone could photograph or walk a runway as well as she did with an injury! This girl is AWESOME!

Hannah’s favorite place on Earth is Paris so she really wanted to get some Paris inspired senior pictures. She had on the perfect outfit and accessories for her themed model session! We had so much fun green screening her into some awesome shots of Paris that Prem took when he was there. Hannah looked so cute and fit absolutely perfectly with the backgrounds! We love how everything turned out!

Travel Inspired Senior Pictures

Hannah brought a really cool trench coat and umbrella and we had the chance to get super creative for one of her shots! With a little help from Photoshop, we were able to create an absolutely magical photo of her. It’s one of our favorites we’ve ever done!

Hannah, thanks for the awesome shoot and for being one of the most awesome people we’ve ever met! We had so much fun with you and we are so honored to have you as one of our models! Can’t wait to take your senior pictures in a few weeks!

pretty michigan senior pictures

Last month we were able to photograph Hannah’s senior portrait session at the Cranbrook grounds, and it turned out just as gorgeous as we thought it would!


She put the same amount of effort into her senior session as she did in the fashion show! She’s one of the easiest people to work with, and even easier to photograph. What a beauty!


She looks totally natural and at home in whatever pose we put her in. That always makes the pictures turn out so well!


Hannah kept us smiling all day with her sunny personality.


We were worried about the weather we’d been having all last month, but for Hannah’s shoot, everything turned out great!


Feel free to leave Hannah a comment about her awesome model session or best wishes as she will soon begin her senior year of high school!

Cool Lake Orion Senior Pics with Olivia!

Olivia “Liv” is a Lake Orion High School junior and is now one of our Senior Models! Olivia’s friends would describe her as “short, funny and loud.” Her favorite brand is LA Hearts and her favorite items in her closet are her sundresses! She can’t live without her family, friends and her cell phone. Although she still wishes she were better at math, Olivia is really proud of the fact that she’s been able to receive good grades throughout high school. Olivia’s biggest passions are drawing and painting. After high school, Olivia would like to attend Grand Valley State University and hopes to become a dermatologist some day.

Olivia said that she’s excited to be an Arising Images Model because, “I get to meet an amazing group of girls, and participate the in many activities that Arising Images had planned for us.”

Olivia, we couldn’t be happier to have you as one of our senior models.

In June, we had the privilege of photographing Olivia again for her senior session! Like always, she totally rocked it out, and we love how her pictures turned out!

We met Olivia at our farm property, which was the perfect setting for her casual shoot.


We always knew Olivia was great with fashion, but she always leaves us impressed at her ability to pick out just the right outfit to compliment her personality!



She broke out one of her sundresses for the warm day, and we loved it against our old truck. The two together were a perfect combination for great photos.


She’s got a smile that we couldn’t get enough of! She makes our job easy.


We loved spending the day with Olivia, as always. She’s a beautiful girl, both inside and out, which is what we love about our jobs: bringing the inside beauty out for everyone to see!


Feel free to leave Olivia a comment about her awesome pictures or best wishes as she’s almost a senior in high school!
