Father’s Day Memories

I spent late this afternoon at Eldridge Park with Tara & Mark, one of my couples whose Wedding I shared last October. Today we were joined by their boys Angel and little Sebastian, who hopefully & at the same time unwittingly created some magical Father’s Day memories for recall later on in their lives…..of that special Father’s Day, that day when they shared their very first spin on the Eldridge Park Carousel with Mom & Dad.

PS: Note to Photographers:  Always come to your shoot armed with Tootsie-Pops, they work great for bribing reluctant portrait subjects, and as you can see in the last image,  the associated sugar high really got this little Angel flying!!! Not to mention his making a great new friend with his best new buddy with all the Tootsie Pops….. Mr. Photographer!!!! 🙂

 

Satisfied Customer…..Again!

“Hi Rick,
The pictures are perfect…thank you!  Katelyn had a wonderful time during the photo shoot and I really appreciated your willingness to take the time for outfit changes, we never felt rushed.  More importantly you encouraged her to have fun, express her own idea, these are some of my favorite pictures.  The pictures are beautiful and I can not wait to display them.
Karry D  ”

Never in a Rush…….. Just Be Yourself….. and Let’s Have Some Fun!  That’s always my game plan, & it Just Works!
Call me to set up YOUR personal Portrait session!  Rick

“The Kingmaker”

I’m known (at least to myself!) as, The Kingmaker!
I have the unbelievable distinction of having EVERY SINGLE POLITICAL CANDIDATE that I have ever had the pleasure to shoot their Portrait, WIN their respective elections! EVERY ONE! From nationally known… NYS Senator Hillary Clinton & NY Governor Eliott Spitzer, to many local Judges, Mayors, State & U.S. Congressmen, a State Senator, local D.A.’s. And I even shot some great candids of President Obama & Mexican President Felipe Calderon at the White House in May 2010. One of the coolest days of my life I might add!
Not Bad at all!  Perhaps you should have given me a call there….. Mitt!

So step right up Rodney, & keep “The Kingmaker’s” winning streak going…….Here’s your next winner folks!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poinsettia-ville!

From todays client shoot with Jamie and his beautiful little girl Lisa. If you can’t get in the Christmas spirit in a  Greenhouse chock full of Poinsettias, well I guess you never will!

Val & Billy & Luke!

It was great seeing Val & Billy again after shooting their Summer 2011 Wedding…….and look Who’s happened to them since!!! What a Happy Little Guy!!! AND a YANKEES Fan too!!! Merry First Christmas Together with Him!!!

 

Nine Years Later…

I had the honor to shoot Lindsay & Tony’s Wedding just about nine years ago. Today, they showed me what they have been up to since then! I got to meet little Ellie, Drew, and new twin arrivals Cal & Caroline! We all had a great time this Crisp, Fall Afternoon up at Sperr Park, and we captured some great memories along the way! Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

My Saturday Afternoon With Tiffany – “The Eyes Have It!” 10/22/11

This late October Shoot was such a blast for both of us! For me, I got to finally shoot with Tiffany whom I know through volunteering my Photography talent and services with the American Cancer Society, which is where Tiffany works. We have both worked together at the ACS Relay For Life events in Horseheads the past few years, and from the first time that I saw them, I always thought that Tiff had the most Incredible Eyes. That Steel Silver/Blue color is so incredible to look at, and was really amazing as captured in these fun shots taken around Horseheads on this Beautiful Fall Saturday Afternoon in October. Thanks Tiff for being such an incredible model, and I look forward to shooting together again soon!

Smokin’ Stacey & Her Cigar!

Today I had the pleasure to catch up with one of my favorite 2010 Brides! Stacey was here at the 211 Studio along with her Mom for a Professional Portrait Shoot. Stacey & Marc just moved back from the Buffalo Area to start her own business here, which I’m sure will be a big success! I Had a fun time Stace, love the new hair look, and it was so great to shoot with you again!…You’ve still “Got It” Kiddo!
