This afternoon we got to do some photos with Liz. We photographed her senior pictures a few years ago and now we’re working on another project with her.
We had a really fun and different project recently. There is a great local organization called NACE (National Association of Catering Executives) . They are doing their annual awards banquet and throwing in a bit of a murder mystery element to it.
We had to take some of the board members and make them look like murder suspects which was pretty odd considering how these people are all respected business owners. We had a blast doing these photos because they were all REALLY good sports about it!!

This morning we had a great photo shoot with Jim and Joan with their yacht at the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club. Jim is the father of Paige and a couple years ago we filled Paige and her husband’s Doctors office with large fine art canvas prints for their office. We also photographed their son Jake’s senior pics so it was nice to be able to photograph yet another part of the family. Jim and Joan have an amazing yacht and it was really cool to be able to photograph them on the boat and in/around their yacht club.
Here are a few favorite pics from this morning:
Our friend Amber works at Grace Centers of Hope which is an amazing organization in Pontiac, MI. They were in need of photographs for their next calendar which will be used as a fundraiser so Cheridy and I went out there this afternoon and took a bunch of shots of the kids playing and goofing around.
Grace Centers of Hope is Oakland County’s oldest and largest homeless shelter. They are considered one of the leading faith-based organizations in Southeastern Michigan daily confronting issues of homelessness, addiction, poverty and spiritual emptiness. To learn more or to donate to their cause, please go to their website: http://www.gracecentersofhope.org/
The people that work there are all so dedicated and passionate, we were glad to be able to see just a piece of what goes on there.
On Friday I had a mini art show as part of the Eyes on Design Show at the Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills. It was an event that focuses on automotive design but this year they expanded it to include, a fashion show, live museum, and other types of art. I was able to have a number of fine art pieces on display in the VIP lounge along with a few others around the main part of the museum.
It was a really interesting dynamic for me since I used to work at Design Center at GM. Seeing all the car models and concept cars really brought me back. I even ran into a number of people I used to work with back in the day. Being there reminded me how much I’m glad to not be working in the automotive world any more.
If anyone is interested in purchasing any large framed or canvas wrapped art work, please see our fine art page at www.arisingimages.com/fineart.
I spent some time walking around the museum to check out some of the cool displays.
Cheridy brought Mayz up to hang out for a little while:
