Hello Again!

My phone has now been reconnected. The last remaining Holiday orders are either now with me or are just shipping from the lab. If you have received a message to pick up your order please contact me asap. Orders that are not collected before Christmas Eve will not be available for pick up until Monday December 29th.

OK I’m off to find my shovel. Got a lot of snow to clear!

North East Ice Storm-limited communication!

A huge ice storm which yesterday knocked out power has left me with limited communication. I do not currently have either a land or cell phone that is working. I do have internet access so for all inquiries regarding orders or sessions please contact me via email. Also someone from our family in England keeps calling. We keep trying to speak to you but with no luck!!! We’re all ok and the trees that fell down in our yard were well away from the cars and house!

Thanksgiving Weekend Session

 I went back and forth about whether to blog some photographs of this little guy in one of his rather cute hats. ( I love it when clients bring along hats!) But no, I decided I’m going to save those ones as a suprise for Mom and Dad! It’s hard keeping them secret though. Anyway he took a great photo without any accessories although the hats came in handy when it got chilly. I hope  these portraits will be a special memory of the Thanksgiving break for this family. They were travelling back to Manhatten after the session.

A Moment Shared

Many of my clients often point out one particular photo from their session which is special to them. I too have many reasons for selecting my favorites as the photographer.

 I absolutely love this portrait on so many levels. I love the bond between the parents and their son, the composition and  the lovely mono tones. The eye contact happening here is not with me and all the better for it. It makes for a portrait which is one of my all time favorites. This one is headed for my Moments Gallery very soon!  I loved spending time with this Mom and Dad and their three fantastic boys and I am thrilled that they really love their proofs.

A Special Reason For A Portrait

I photographed this lovely little girl last year.  She recently reached an important milestone and successfully completed her treatment for leukemia. I thought this was a special enough a reason to stop by and take some photographs for the family.  She has so grown up this past year too!

This family is working very hard to raise money for The Jimmy Fund to help with the fight against infant leukemia. You can read more information about this here. For anyone out there, new visitors and all my clients, reading this, please think about making a donation to this very important cause.

I’ve been away in sunny Florida this week and will be busy returning emails and phone calls over the next couple of days for anyone who has contacted me. While I was there the Shuttle Endeavour was launched in a rare night launch (possibly the last ever!). Taking photos of it was a challenge as I had travelled light with just a small lens and no tripod, but I think these images catch the atmosphere of waiting on Cocoa Beach for the launch and the awe inspiring sight of it streaking into space.

A Walk in the Park

 Well here we are heading rapidly toward Holiday season and this session felt more like an shoot in September! Here are two super cute kids from this afternoon’s family session!

The Golden Hour

 In photography there’s a term called “The Golden Hour”. It’s the last hour before sundown when light is at it’s most perfect.  The golden hour during this session was one of the best I’ve seen and on the first day of November too!  The perfect light was complemented by this fantastic young lady. She was wonderful to photograph and we’ve got some great images for her high school senior gallery.

One lucky girl …

 … to have such a cute baby sister and such a handsome dog! We had a glorious New England fall afternoon and a perfect setting by this family’s house to capture some lovely images, it was a delightful session.
