happy march {it’s going to be special}

Happy March folks!

This is going to be a very special month.  By special, I mean we are going to be announcing some AWESOME specials!   We’ve got some exciting new plans, so be sure to stay tuned.

In other news, we recently teamed up with our fabulous pal Stephanie of Sissy’s Vintage & Nouveau Boutique in Baldwinsville, NY for a fun dog themed kids birthday party.  I think we had the cutest models ever!

We are so honored to have some of the photographs featured on the super popular, fun and fabulous blog!

One of the DIY details we created were these green whoopie pies to go along with the lime green color scheme of the party.  Seeing as it is March, I think these could be a fun treat for St. Patricks Day as well.

Be sure to come back for our specials that we will be promoting through out the month of March.

Mandy - This is adorable! I am so glad I stumbled upon this!

moment junkie {published}

I never tire of looking at photographs, so when I discovered Moment Junkie I was instantly hooked!

Moment Junkie offers a fantastic daily dose of candid photographs from weddings.  Some of them are touching, sweet, and many of the images are hilarious.  I’m tickled pink that this photograph of mine from Sarah and Steve’s wedding is being featured by Moment Junkie today. It makes me laugh every time I look at it…

Mary Marantz - LOL! I LOVE it!


Ohhh Snap - great picture! you have a real knack for capturing these moments :D

catching up with baby mila {1 year old}

Mila is my first “Baby’s First Year” client, and it was so great to be able to witness and document this little darling’s growth.  To catch up, you can view here newborn portraits here, 4 months here, and at 8 months here.

Last fall we photographed Mila’s One Year portraits.  I tell you this baby girl is a bundle of sweetness and, of course, cute as button…

Gosh, we may just have to do Baby’s Second Year!  xoxo

Roxana - She’s adorable! And such a stylish young woman! :) Love her teeth!

Cindy - she IS a doll! super sweet pics (:

Shannon Rosan - What a little doll! I love how this is not a typical ’1 year old’ shoot, but a document of her life. Very cute!

Shannon Rosan - Baby Mila is a doll :) I love that this is not a typical ’1 year old’ shoot. but a document of her life at that age. Very well done.

Beth - Mila is such a cutie!

vintage dog collectibles {mi casa}

One of my new year’s resolutions is to give my blog more attention.  While most of it will be photography related, I am going to do my best to contribute more personal posts to help you get to know me better.  Today I’m going to start in the already-existing-but-sorely-neglected “mi casa” category.

While photography is my biggest passion in life, I’m more than a little bit obsessed with interior design, home magazines, and fixing up my 93 year old house.  One unique element to my home is my vintage and antique dog collectibles.  If you are new to my blog, you may have missed the first installment of my vintage dog collection as seen here.  It’s been quite a while since the original post, so here is a glimpse at some additions to my growing collection.  If you love dogs or quirky vintage/ antique artwork, you just may appreciate these as much as I do.

This amazing folk art piece is among my favorites.  The “boy dog” detail cracks me up.

This antique oil painting was an extremely generous gift from some of my doggy clients.

I picked up this little bakelite scottie pencil sharpener at an antique show.

Love this wood sculptural poodle toy.

Although I have some fab ceramic pieces, I definitely lean more to the metal figurines like these ones.

My eldest sister gave me this fun piece.  I sure do love me some smooshed-face-Frenchies.

Do you have any collectibles or elements that make your home unique?

Shannon Rosan - These are all so adorable! I love how unique each dog sculpture is.

Shannon Rosan - These are adorable! I love how unique each piece is.

Cindy - these are so cute! I’m currently doing some remodeling to the house and I love to see adorable ideas like this for inspiration!
