Stephanie – your Senior Portrait is ready!

13 11 2010

We had the pleasure of helping Stephanie with her senior portrait. You can see her photos here in our on-line store.

We can do senior portraits for any of the area schools including Schenectady, Niskayuna, Colonie, Mohonasen, Clifton Park – and more! A number of students visit us after having seen the designated school photographer so that they can get custom portraits done with us. We make house calls – so that you can have your portrait in your favorite environment, not just a stuffy studio! Include your car, truck, boat, etc. or the equipment for your favorite sport! We can bring our portable studio to you, giving you the widest range of options to pamper yourself. You can even schedule a BFF photo shoot. Why not, you deserve it!

PS to parents – after we take care of the senior portraits we can also offer portraits of your other children or the entire family – including the family pet!

We can also cover events such as birthday and graduation parties, Sweet 16 and Mitzvahs.





Summer fun for The Rensselaer Society of Engineers

7 08 2010
I am proud to be a member of, a past trustee of and the past advisor to the Rensselaer Society of Engineers, a fraternity at RPI. Each summer a reunion is held, offering a chance for the membership to gather and reconnect. This summer we celebrated the renovations completed in our living room and the dedication of a small museum of artifacts. We also renewed our commitments to scholarship having awarded over $10,000 this past year.



Photos from the event are available at this link to my website: RSE Summer Reunion 2010.



Would you like to sit back and enjoy your next event? We can be booked to cover celebrations like this and can deliver a disk of high quality images for y0ur website or other usage. Give us a call at 518-225-6306 to make the arrangements!





Schenectady High School Afterprom Party – Photo Magnet Time!

23 05 2010
We again had the pleasure to join students from Schenectady High School for their fantastic after prom party! In between activities in the cafeteria, students came to our photography “studio” to have their portraits turned into our photo magnets. The students were wonderful! Its always fun to see who has a pose already in mind and who needs a little time to ponder the options. In fact, the students were literally jumping for joy!

To see ALL of the photos, please visit our on-line store where you can view and order your favorites! On the website you can see what the photos look like in black & white like your photo magnets at the party, in full color, in “sepia” (a very flattering light brown tint) or “retro” for a slightly faded look that’s really nice!





Attention all Princesses! Prom Season is fast approaching!

21 03 2010

With prom season fast approaching its important to make your portrait session reservations as early as possible! We’ll have only a limited number of openings so be sure to give us a call at 518-225-6306  to schedule yours!

Many girls find themselves left out because we run out of openings “on the day” of the prom. We actually recommend that you simply plan to get your gown a few days ahead of time and schedule a quiet portrait session for just you. Or, for even more fun, schedule a group session with two or three of your friends for a bonus on your orders. That way you can avoid the last minute panic of prom day and still have beautiful formal portraits.

And AFTER the prom, you can still have portraits done! Now that the dress has been to the prom and back, you don’t have to worry about it as much! Simply schedule a session for the week or two after the prom. We can do a special indoor / outdoor session – something more like a fashion shoot than a traditional prom portrait session.

And, if you mention this posting and book both a before AND after portrait session we’ll throw in a special bonus!

Thinking about making your own dress? Or have one that you would like to have altered or changed to make it uniquely you? One of our friends owns a sewing business, me, myself & I. They can provide you with help selecting patterns and materials, help you actually make the dress, alter a dress you already have or even make a completely custom dress for you! Visit their website http://memyself-i.com/ for more information.





Weddings, Weddings, Weddings!

18 10 2009

Now that the cold weather is upon us I find that many couples are really getting started on their wedding planning! Give us a call at 518-225-6306 to set up an free appointment to discuss your wedding plans. We are now accepting bookings through all of 2010 and all of 2011. We do book that far in advance, so to be sure that you won’t be left “standing at the alter without us” be sure to book early! The best dates, of course, always book quickly.

Getting married “off season”, such as later this year or early in 2010? Give us a call! Although we do book a variety of events other than weddings we may still have your date available.

And if you know anyone putting together a large event such as a Sweet 16, anniversary, business function, or Mitzvah – well, we cover those types of events as well!





The RSE Formal

18 10 2009

I attended the Rensselaer Society of Engineers formal party last night to capture portraits of the members and their dates. Everyone was sharply dressed for the occasion and looked fantastic. The event was held at The Meadows which is operated by Birch Hill.

I have posted the photos here for all to see and enjoy. You can order your favorites through the on-line store.





Leah’s Bat Mitzvah Photos

13 05 2009

I finally had a chance to finish uploading them all – I had several hundred all together!

You can see them all at my on-line store. I have separated them into groups to make them a little easier to look through!

Thank you again to my new-found friends at Congregation Gates of Heaven in Niskayuna, especially to Rabbi Matt and Kenny, who made me feel very welcome!
