the nelsons {just a peek}

Have you ever thought about doing a portrait session in the winter?  If not, I think you should!  While the flowers of spring, grass of summer, and colors of autumn are all beautiful, I have to say I do love me a wintry scene. With this in mind, I’m happy to share with you a […]

carrie + andy {slideshow}

Absolutely loving the new trend in stop motion messages. Carrie’s and Andy’s Valentines Day themed portrait session, gave me the perfect opportunity to give it a try for myself. These two are so cute, and I couldn’t be happier with this fun little valentine message… The creative possibilities for this type of fun stop motion […]

Last night was our monthly CNY PUG (Pictage User Group) meeting for professional photographers!  Unfortunately a few of our members couldn’t make it due to little life events, like oh going to have a baby any day now, dogs in surgery, sick kids, and jetting off to Florida… you know who you are :)   Luckily […]

Mike - Someone went home happy!

valentines inspiration from {julia child}

Last fall I went to see the film Julie & Julia, which I thoroughly enjoyed.  First off, I think Meryl Streep is the most amazing actress ever!  I saw her perform in a play at UCLA a few years back.  It was a very civilized audience, but I wanted to jump up and down like […]

celebrating life {and a happy new year}

Until it happened to me, I just didn’t know how quickly and drastically one’s life can change from one second to the next. Many of you know that I relocated to central New York from California, just about two years ago.  What you may not know is that I spent the majority of 2008, recovering […]

Alice - I thought of another title I could have given this post… Plaid to the Bone! Oooh my funny meter just went on the fritz.

Brittany Cho - Hi Beth and Alice!

We LOVE your blog. And thanks for your sweet comment on ours. So sorry to hear of your injury. However, your narrative is priceless and your photography is lush! We recently moved from California too, I spent 12 years in LA. Crazy place :) May 2010 bring you joy and prosperity!

Ryan8kelly@hotmail.com - I second the great coat moment. I’m glad your arm is all healed, carrying those big camera’s around is hard enough with a healthy arm! Happy New Years!

Mark stagi - Happy New Years to you! Thats awesome that you are healed, I wish you the best for 2010!

Nicole Glenn - Yikes! Glad you are doing better! Great coat, a ‘no’ was definitely in order.

Feuza - Great photo by beth on last one, holding the camera and doing snow balls, not an easy task. Wow, I can not imagine the pain and ice is so brutal, once I was waiting for some parents at my church for we had just finished a rehearsal with the kids and teens and two teens were standing by some ice, goofing off and one fell, she cut her chin so deep, had to go get stitches so I know ice is so brutal, that must of been so hard to loose the feeling of your left hand, and so glad you are doing lots better and even posing in some shots~ happy new decade!

Sara - So now you know how it feels to be a bride at an Orthodox Greek wedding!!!

laure - whoa…

Happy New Year and New Decade Alice G.

Meet you soon at the next PUG!

Laure

Mom - So glad you saved your coat – - and even more importantly, so glad that your arm works!!! I love the photos, and love you and Beth.

Emily - Happy New Year! So glad your arm healed up, and you can use your hand again! I love your coat, too. :)

Ellen - That coat is timeless!!

Besso and Giovanni - So sorry for that awful experience but thankfully your in better health and getting back to what you do best. I love all your images and you give me inspiration!

Beth - Happy New Year!! You’re so much fun!

Lindsay - the last image is my fave

Cathy - Sooo glad it was just temporary! Love the snowball fight shots! You’re just too funny!

winter semi formal {photo party}

I’ve added a new “photo booth” service as an a la carte option for my 2010 clients.  It’s brand new service, so we thought we would try it out last weekend.  My niece invited her friends over to my house for a little pre-dance photo party, before they headed out for a great night at […]

newlyweds {alma + david}

Back in early November, I had the extreme pleasure and honor of photographing Alma and David, during a photo workshop led by Kurt Gerber.  It was yet another perk of attending Pictage’s PartnerCon in New Orleans.  At the time of the photo session, Alma and David had only been married for two weeks.  They had […]
