Family Portrait Time

31 01 2010

I had the pleasure of working with the Brockbank family to capture their family portraits. In addition to the more traditional poses, Matt and Mark enjoyed some additional poses all their own!

The photos can be seen on our website. Imagine your wonderful family beautifully photographed on a wall sized fine art canvas print displayed in your home!

Don’t forget! Valentine’s day is coming and we have a limited number of portrait sessions still available. You can also give your Valentine the gift of a photo session to be scheduled for after the holiday!





Hawks, hawks, hawks!

15 01 2010

I’m fascinated by hawks. I truly do not know why… but I find them very beautiful and majestic. On my travels I usually pass a location where two hawks can be found roosting, probably looking for their next meal. When I travel between the Capital District and Long Island I usually see a hawk or two along the thruway or side roads.

The other day, however, was truly unusual! I saw the usual pair of hawks although they were hiding in a different set of trees than usual. I then passed another hawk, this time in flight! And further along I passed two more hawks perched above the landscape!

Five hawks seen in the local area in a single day – a new record for me!





Fall Colors

1 11 2009

I took a walk around the Vischer Ferry preserve this weekend and captured some of the fall foliage.

Some of these are now available as prints or fine art note cards on my website.





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!





Cape Cod Vacation

9 08 2009

We just enjoyed a brief get-away to Cape Cod. Beautiful!

It seems like wherever we go, someone is always fascinated by my camera!

Actually, for people pictures we usually let you clean up first!

Have a safe and happy summer!





Congratulations… to US!

My Friend, The Red Tailed Hawk

13 06 2009

I’m always on the lookout for these guys but I seem to never have my camera with me when I spot them!

Happily this one asked me to do a portrait session! This is one of the nicer ones. I had to keep it short because the bird had to fly off to another appointment!





Summer Flowers

30 05 2009

Was looking around my back yard the other day and realized just how pretty some of the flowers were!

Enjoy the beautiful weather!
