Thank you to all the servicemen and women!

Thank you to those that have served, do serve and will serve.  We have had ample opportunity to share parts of military life within the day to day running of our business.  Pictures are a treasured commodity when absences are long and distances are far, and we always appreciate being asked to take part.  From formal shoots in our studio, to weddings, to military balls, these events force us to say thanks for the freedoms we enjoy daily.  While today is about those who have fallen, all should be acknowledged and thanked.

"In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can."

Another fabulous Senior Portrait shoot at our outdoor/indoor studio.  Formal shots in the studio and personality shots outdoors.  Love this combination! 

Some faces you see and personalities you feel just looking at them and with that knowledge, you can say with confidence "This one is going places!"  Good luck Remington!

Attitude Panoramic Team Pictures

One of our favorite products that we've added into our sports line is the "Attitude Pano".  These team pictures are wonderful additions to the standard shots that we take of all sports teams.  They are perfect for gifts to kids and coaches and hang nicely on a wall. We offer them in the 10x30 and 5x15 sizes and the quality is fabulous.  It takes a little longer on picture day, but the result is worth it.  They are printed on metallic paper and the graphics really pop.  

10x30    $45 
5x15      $35
and take $10.00 off each print when your team buys 7 or more.

New Hock Farm

We've worked with New Hock Farm on marketing images for their inspired Catering and Events business.  Leading with a 38 foot mobile kitchen, (although they also have permanent kitchen space they've dubbed "The Farm"), they offer a wide range of services suitable for any event you might be thinking of.  From food, rentals, planning, floral arrangements and so much more,  Dave and Yvette are fabulous to work with and offer a 1 stop business plan to make life easier on everyone.  And the food.  The food is amazing.  We will surely be hearing more and more about New Hock Farm as word gets out in the North State.


Rentals of place settings, tables, chairs, linens and custom floral arrangements, New Hock Farm offers more than just amazing food for your events!

Quality is not an act, it is a habit.

Sisters around the studio

We had the privilege of having the Agostino Family in the studio last week for a shoot with new baby Macey and big sister Callie.  Callie had just had a birthday and turned 2, so it was a combination shoot of Macey's 2 month pictures and 2 year old pictures.   We rolled with what the girls could handle and collected a great group of images of each. 

And we were reminded of the crazy days when a new baby arrives - you really have no choice but to go with the flow.  We happily offered them a little more time later in the week, to let the kids have a break and come back to the studio fresh to finish the shoot off.  These sisters are off to a great start with lots of love and joy surrounding them both.  It will be so much fun to watch them grow throughout the years!

Good work Callie and Macey - we hope to see you again soon!

Outdoor Studio - This weekend's sneak peak

We are beyond fortunate to have access to our outdoor studio right now.  We can tie in formal studio shots with a beautiful outdoor setting as well.  It's the best of both worlds.  Here's an image from yesterday's senior portrait shoot.  Hard to believe they accomplished this and the formal tuxedo shot in an hour shoot.

Big Brother to be - any day!

So, our good friend Amber texts me earlier in the week that she is beyond the point on "cute" maternity pics but wanted to get some with Dalton because the baby is now "his baby" too.  I love it.  And for the record, Amber's still cute and the pictures are priceless!  Can't wait to meet this new little human and watch Dalton love on him or her.

Little Patriot

"We know what we are, but know not what we may be."

We had this handsome 2 year old in for a mini session this week.  It was a home run.  Happy kid, great images with an unique twist and it was all done in a time frame that worked for him - quickly!  If you are looking for a quick studio session to get a couple quality images, this is the way to go.
