“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!

Katie & Joe – July 24, 2015

Today my Niece Katie takes that walk down the Wagner’s Winery Aisle to meet her Groom Joe.
Thursday Nights Rehearsal & Dinner was fun! CONGRATULATIONS & have a GREAT Wedding Day today!!!
BLUEMOVES even made the trip up to Lodi! She hasn’t been that far away from home in 25 years!
It’s funny…even now when I get behind that wheel..I still feel like that 18 year old kid who bought her, nearly 40 years ago!
Really “Cleaned the Pipes” if you know what I mean!

“Trust Me Boys…Just Trust Me!”

So it’s Cassie & my old buddy Matt’s Wedding Day.

I’m shooting the ladies through the early afternoon as they are getting ready at a local winery, and I have to meet Matt & his guys down in Downtown Watkins Glen on The Pier @ 2:30 to do our shots of the guys along the Watkins Harbor. I’m halfway there when Matt calls me and says “Watkins is just Nuts!” It’s the Cardboard Boat Regatta in full force, and traffic is barely moving. Parking spots? Good luck there! People ALL OVER EVERYWHERE! Our Pier idea is toast. OK……so this is where I’m Really, Really Good! Improvising! Creating Something out of Nothing!

As I’m driving, I remember that I just passed this great old, beat to hell cottage/farmhouse that I have passed a million times while heading up the lake to other Weddings. So I tell Matt to meet me there with the guys, and we’ll do our shoot right there. So the Boys arrive, and while getting out of their cars they all give me “THE LOOK”. I’ve seen it a Million times! Whenever I take clients to spots that I just know will be killer backgrounds, they ALWAYS give me this “LOOK” of total disbelief! “WTH are we going to do here” they always ask? This time they were also worried that the place was going to collapse on all of us! “So when exactly did the Beverly Hillbillies move out?” someone asked…lol and I’m chuckling all the while.

“Trust Me Boys! Just Trust Me!”….when you finally see what I’m creating here….you’ll ALL be telling me what a Camera God I TRULY AM! Like my hero David Letterman always says…..”There’s NO OFF POSITION on the GENIUS SWITCH!”
So Gentlemen……….What do you think now?
You’re Welcome!!!!

“Pavarotti” of First Arena!

A shot I took early in the 2014-2015 Elmira Jackals ECHL Hockey Season of Talented Elmira Soloist Michael Burrell, performing the National Anthem. A moment of Pleasure of both Sight & Sound.

Flam! Bam! Thank-You Ma’am!

Exciting news at the 211 Studio. Mysteriously last night, I found two new Baby Flamingo additions to my already assembled Flock! It’s as if I found a Baby wrapped in a Blanket on my doorstep!!!! Perhaps someday the mystery will be solved!

From “CHEERS” to Root Beers?

A scene from last night’s Wagner Vineyards Wedding Reception of Lydia & Mark, while one of he crew was dishing up delicious Wagner Root Beer Floats!  She insisted that her name was Olivia, but we all know that she was really Kirstie Alley, less her Vulcan Star Trek ears! These Celebrities….always trying to go incognito on us!
So whadaya think????
