wedding albums {new portfolio}

I recently heard another photographer say “It is not only our job to make beautiful images for our clients, but to also guide them through to the end of the experience… the end being the final destination for the photography.” When properly done, an album will tell your story.  You can pull it off a […]

Brianna Phelan - The album is beautiful. Great job (:

Marianne Lozano - looks great Alice!

laure - Love, love, love this album!

Cathy - My wedding album is the BEST money I spent for my wedding. Fifteen years later, we still take it out and look at it. The kids are fascinated by it too.

Beth - The quality of the album paper and binding is wonderful, combined with your design and gorgeous images, its divine!

Noelle - This is fabulous – I love how the images are not constrained to one page. And the double page spread – it reminds me of Life magazine – uber professional and memorable…..

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 […]

alice - Thanks guys… my sister Beth (aka best studio manager evah!) and I put a lot of thought and outreach to for these awesome door prizes. I’m happy to say though, that I think everyone is walking away a winner, due to the great community found in these meetings. Pictage is a huge leader in the philosophy of building supportive communities amongst professional photographers; and we are so happy to be leading this group!

Beth - Thanks Wendi and Kubota Images!

Chrissy - Don’t know how you manage to get such rockin prizes! Great job and what a lucky group!

Mike - Someone went home happy!

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 […]

sara, owen, will, and charlotte {just a peek}

I’ve been living in Central New York for about two years now.  Yesterday, however, was the first time I drove to Ithaca; and already, I can’t wait to go back.  The drive was filled with amazing rural landscapes, which I hope to photograph in the springtime, if not sooner. I didn’t have time {to stop […]

Anonymous - “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!”

Beth - “You just won an all expenses paid vacation to Disney World!”

Amy - I “hear” ‘Mom, Mom, Mom’ … ‘Dad, Dad, Dad …’
Maybe that’s just from my own personal experience! :)

b’ville {dipped in gold}

The colors of fall here are so amazing… I mean super aaaaammaaaaazzzziinnnggg! The contrast of being in sunny southern California one day, and back in New York’s fall the next is striking.  It feels like I have on rose colored glasses… but I don’t!  The colors against the bright blue sky are simply breathtaking!   Well, […]

look up “happy halloween” in the dictionary {and you’ll find a picture of Cooper}

Cooper donned an awesome halloween costume for his school parade yesterday!  In fact, it was such a great costume, he won first prize in a costume contest held at the McHarrie Museum last night!  Here is cute a snap I took with my sister’s point and shoot… It you think about it, this getup adds […]

sara and jordan {sort of}

I had a great family portrait session with Jeff and his beautiful daughters Jordan and Sara.  You may remember Sara from her senior portrait session!  After the shoot today, we were talking on the front porch saying our goodbyes, as they were all getting ready to head home.  At some point I glance over and […]

Kyla Giles - Alice, Thank you sooo much for hosting such a wonderful evening! We truly enjoyed ourselves and you can bet that we were chattering away the whole ride home, full of new ideas and inspiration! Thanks for opening up your beautiful home to us and thanks to Justin & Mary for a phenomenal presentation. It was wonderful to meet and network with other fantastic area photographers. Oh, and I agree with Beth that the Spider Holster is way cool! Keep us updated on the next PUG meetings, if the weather cooperates we’d be happy to make the drive again!

Meghan Thomas - What an exciting night! I am so grateful for the work that you have done to get us, our own PUG! I love that we have so many talented professionals in our backyard and now we can actually utilize that!
Thanks!!

Alice - Thank you so much!

Bob Kaussner - Hi Alice!,

Just a short message to thank you once again for your excellent hospitality, and truly great first Central New York PUG meeting at your house Wednesday evening. Although I’ve been a Pictage Pro member of several years, I’ve been feeling disappointed not having a PUG in our area (the closest one being four hours away in NYC). Now I don’t need to be disappointed anymore since the PUG meeting that you hosted and ran so beautifully was fabulous. I now look forward to continuing the tradition that you’ve begun of networking with other talented photographers and sharing the wealth of one-another’s experience, vision, and common passion of photography. Thank you once again for a great first PUG meeting!

Marianne Miles - Thanks so-o much for hosting a great meeting! I enjoyed all the speakers – who were exceptional – and meeting the other photographers. I am back to work with a renewed spirit and belief in what I’m doing. Thanks again. See you next month-
Marianne

Beth - Justin and Mary are awesome! Their presentation was very inspirational! Shai’s spider holster is way cool! It seemed like everyone enjoyed the meeting :)
