Happy Mother’s Day

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!

We did a portrait  session for Steph and Greg including some portraits together and some separate head shots of each. The photos from this session are now on-line.





Congratulations to Shabre!

30 06 2009

With her family & friends all around her, Shabre celebrated her high school graduation last Saturday night in style! Everyone boarded the Dutch Apple Cruise ship in Albany for a 3 hour sail down the Hudson River and back!

The music was fantastic – you could almost feel the ship bounce to the beat coming from the mid deck. The galley served up some wonderful food on the lower deck. And on the upper deck, we were shooting photo magnets of everyone!

I just finished uploading the photos to the website! Take a look and enjoy!

Draper Middle School Moving Up Dance

20 06 2009

Congratulations to my friends at Draper Middle School! I again had the pleasure of providing photo magnets at their celebration!

Everyone had a great time enjoying the wonderful music provided by Chris Hollister of Cool Cat Entertainment, munching on a variety of foods and snacks, taking snapshots of each other at the posing stations and, of course, muging for our camera! Our keepsake photo magnets will be treasured by Draper families as they decorate fridges and school lockers!

I have a ton of photos and will be uploading them over the next couple of days so – stay tuned!





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!





Katie and Tim go to the Junior Prom!

27 05 2009

I had the pleasure of visiting Katie’s home as she made her final preparations for the Niskayuna Junior Prom. While we waited for her escort Tim to arrive made did a variety of beautiful portraits!

Mazal Tov Leah!

Mazal Tov Leah!

She did a wonderful job with everything – from the readings to her singing, she was fantastic! Cool, calm and collected in two languages!

Leah was surrounded by family and friends at Congregation Gates of Heaven in Niskayuna.

We took photographs before the service, during the practice and during the Mitzvah itself and at the luncheon. Tonite we’ll be capturing some fun photos at the kids party!

Please check back during the week. Once we’ve posted the photos on line there will be an update with a link to the pictures.

Do you know anyone planning their Mitzvah? Please pass along my name!
