Memories….

After all….isn’t that what I’m capturing?
Had a Wedding Free weekend, but that certainly doesn’t always mean no shooting.  I had the honor to capture the moments of a Memorial Service held for a Husband and Wife, married over 62 years, who passed away within 8 days of each other this spring. During a very nice slideshow presentation of the couple & their lives, I shot this image of their daughter & her husband through a partially open doorway…….and you can almost feel the emotions of love & longing in her heart as she watches the lives of her loving parents pass before her tear filled eyes.

Welcome to Horseheads – “Zim” Style Reborn!

A Big Shout-Out to Cassie Cavanaugh for the GREAT job that she did in adding/painting native Horseheads Artist Eugene “Zim” Zimmerman’s Iconic Three Horses Welcome Sign onto the North/East Wall of my 211 Studio Building on North Main Street. Cassie’s Art Class at HHS recently completed re-creating this sign that now hangs on the Horseheads Historical Society Museum RR Station/Building, and after I saw it there, I knew that I wanted one on my Studio! It just works so perfectly, as you see this neat welcome sign as you approach the Historic Hanover Square Business District from the North. Great Job Cassie! And THANK YOU So Much for your Time & Talent Cassie!

Winter Blahs…. to Summer Heat!

With less than two weeks remaining till my first 2016 Wedding, the Wintertime Work Wish List is almost complete:
All Inclusive Winter/Spring Cleaning –  Almost DONE!
New Color Scheme Painting & Layout of Studio Framing & Gear Room – DONE
New, Clean Energy Efficient LED Lighting Installed, Inside & Out – DONE
New Outside Artwork Illumination Installed and Looking GREAT – Check it out the next time you’re driving by at night!
And with all that completed before the Wedding Work begins, I actually had some time to dig through the archives of old shoots from a few years ago that I really liked but never did a lot with, and worked a little of my Post Shoot Processing Magic, and I think they came out Pretty Sweet! So what do you think?
Models, lines are open, and operators are taking your booking calls now!!!

“Forever Run….”

Well, for being born the runt of her litter with a heart murmur, and because of that all of the Vets we spoke to told us not to expect her to live more than 5-7 years.  So with everything seemingly going against her, our little baby girl outlived ALL of her siblings and made it to 15 years and almost one week. Over the weekend though, she had some neurological setbacks which took away her ability to walk, as well as a few other major issues, so today at High Noon, on this Spectacularly Gorgeous Fall Day in October, we helped our little girl get back on her Forever Feet, Gave her Kisses & Big Hugs, and Set Her Free to Romp and Play once again! You’ll always be our Special Little Chloe Girl! xoxo

All Grown Up!

It’s Senior Picture time again Kiddos, and it’s always amazing when friends or relatives call to have their son or daughter schedule a visit to my Studio. I guess it really lets me know how fast the years are flying by! During today’s downpours I had the pleasure to shoot Tia’s Senior Portrait here at the 211 Studio. I’ve known her since she was born, as our families have been very close friends for years. It’s amazing, her transformation into a pretty, young woman. It seems just like yesterday when I was shooting some ‘Sister” portraits of Tia and her younger sister on the playground of a local grade school! Wow!
