The love of the Beadle Family shines through in this Family Session.

I thought this would be a great time to post this story to wrap up the end of the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.

I had the pleasure of meeting Brittney and some of her family when she was getting ready for her upcoming benefit at the Johnny Vegas Lounge in Taylor PA. This happened to be where I play a fun free poker event twice a week (play chips, it has since moved to a new location). You could tell even when first meeting Brittney that she was ready to take on her fight against stage four breast cancer. What determination and strength she has at the young age of 18 to take on such a battle and kick it’s butt!

Brittney was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer at the age of 18. Originally a missed diagnosis led to her cancer spreading. You can read more about her story in a few of these articles from The Times Tribune and Happenings Magazine which will do a better job of getting all of the details right then I could probably do here.

So we had an opportunity to donate to Brittney as well as donate a $400 gift certificate for her raffle drawing she was having at her event. Through a few phone conversations I learned that Brittney had asked if she could use that gift certificate for her own family as she wanted to be able to capture the love she has for her whole family. What an amazing thing! So I said no…. instead we will give you an additional larger one just for your family. And that is what we did.

We decided on going to McDade Park in Scranton. I found this beautiful yellow fall tree to be the background for our photos. Brittney invited her mom, brother, grandparents, and many other members of their family, which made for some amazing photos for their photo album that we made for them and additional wall art prints.

I am happy to say that Brittney is doing great with her treatments, and it was an absolute pleasure for me to get to photograph her family and hear her story. We wish her nothing but the best in the future, and hope that we can photograph their family for years to come.

Brittney wanted to pose with the Pink gloves that you see above as a way to show that she is beating cancer every day! And she is doing just that. She is in remission! Of course there is still a lot of on going treatment and testing to be done to maintain that progress. If you would like to help the Beadle family, they still have an active GoFundMe account that you can help contribute to HERE

Enjoy these photos and make sure to give us a call at 570-690-2019 to book your family session! (yes this can be done in the winter as well)

New York City “Forever” Photo Session available for the Holidays! 

New York City Engagement Sessions

That is right folks, for now until January 7th. I have available a few sessions for a New York Experience that you will never forget!! Due to shorter daylight times I only have available 2 spots per day, and 1 spot at night if someone wants to do a night shoot, so that I can still give everyone the fullest photographic experience possible.

What on earth is a “Forever Session” you might say? It’s an amazing opportunity for us to help you fall in love with each other even deeper then you are now. A way for us to explore who you are as individuals as well as a couple. This means you do not have to be engaged to take advantage of having an amazing experience and one that will help you grow even closer to each other. I repeat, you do not have to be an engaged couple.

You can be married, dating , or even just great friends! Maybe it’s to reconnect with your mom or dad? What an amazing experience for your parents or grandparents? The idea of calling it a “Forever Session” is because this is something that I want you to have forever to enjoy and reminder this time in your life. In the hustle and bustle of today, people often forget to stop and focus on showing each other what they love about each other. It is so important, and makes this more then just taking photos together. That is an amazing side benefit.

In addition to your session in New York City, these will also include a Design Consultation to help you take those moments to the next level by having them ready to display in your home, where you will be able to cherish them every day as you look at them. The power of an image is being able to see it on those days where you really need a pick me up or as a reminder for you or the two of you of the things you learned about each other during your session.

New York City Engagement Sessions

New York city has endless opportunities for photos. Here are just a few ideas

1. The absolutely stunning Central ParkEndless possibilities in every corner of this park and I could create in there forever!

2. Rockefeller Center: Be it the Christmas village, the ice skating rink (they do charge for that), or just around the area of the massive decorated tree and ornaments (that tree is from PA!!)

3. Your favorite “town”: China Town, Little Italy (extra deocrated for the holidays), The Village, SoHo, Chelsea, and so many more I am probably missing

4. DUMBO Park: Stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. It’s a great little park and over look area with a beautiful city skyline. This is where I photographed Jaime’s Dance Photos that I posted a while back.

5. Over the river: There are also some great looks on the New Jersey side looking back into the city. The benefit of this is you avoid some of the crowds.

6. Bryant Park: Another area that will have a great Christmas village and lots of decorations and lights as well as their own skating rink. A plus is that skating is free here, only pay to rent your skates.

7. A Carriage Ride: Get them while they last! A staple of NYC is the horse drawn carriage rides. These soon might be gone folks so enjoy a snuggle while you can! (note a fee applies for these)

8. Take the tour: Do a little bit of everything! I will have an option for you to have me for the entire day where we can go all over the place exploring and creating photos and memories. Since this will block off the entire day (pretty much), this will be an exclusive add on that you will need to invest in, but definitely well worth it! Ask about this option!

9. The High Line: Have you ever seen the High Line? If not you are missing out. One of the coolest things in the city and it goes for miles! Tons of different looks and possibilities and amazing skyline views.

10. GET ENGAGED!!!: How cool would that be? After a day of capturing the love you two have for each other, and increasing that connection that you have for each other, that you end the day with a proposal in the lights of New York City!!! Now THAT will be a proposal story that not only you can tell people forever, but that you can show them throughout the images from the day. PERFECT!

Hit somewhere I missed mentioning: Every time I go to NYC I find something new, so I am sure I am missing something! Let me know what means something to you in New York City!

Here are a few more images from my fashion portrait series I did with this beautiful model while testing the Phase One IQ140 Medium Format Digital Camera. You will see that I started out the shoot out in the snow near sunset to test some of the cameras dynamic range ability. Then we moved inside to work with some studio setups.

The outfit that you see outside was actually made by a local designer from the Stillwater PA area, Nicole Dumond. A big thanks to her for letting us borrow that as well as some more outfits that you will see in upcoming posts.

Enjoy and feel free to leave comments.

Testing In the studio with the Phase One IQ140 camera system!

Photographed with the Phase One 645 df w/ IQ140 back

 

This week I am doing tests with the Phase One 645df camera with the IQ140 back. This is a medium format digital camera, and before you get too worried, no I will not be boring you with all of the crazy technical details. It’s a very different system then I am use to with lots of pluses and some minuses as well. With any camera it has it’s quirks that must be learned.

The photo above features a local HairArtist and Barber Mikey Henger, from the Berwick area. If you are looking for something creative or just regular services, definitely check out the links to his work below.

I will be doing shoots the next couple of days including more portraits as well as some product shots and would love to share some of those with you guys for something new to show. And for all the camera nerds out there, I’ll give you more thoughts later on it as well as my ultimate decisiont.

Stay tuned for more!

Day 6 – Feature Image: Twilight Inspired Model Photoshoot – Francis Slocum

modelphotoshootfrancisslocum

A Twilight inspired photo session at Francis Slocum State Park – Shavertown, PA

 

This is an image taken of the lovely Angela a few years ago now at Francis Slocum State park in Shavertown, PA. It was photographed in a location there off of the beaten path which actually doesn’t exist anymore due to over growth.

The image was inspired by the really horrible movie called Twilight. There was one scene in that movie that grabbed my attention where they are laying in a field together and the lighting was really nice. So, trying to embrace that movie and it’s movement in some way, I decided to do a photo shoot with that idea of that shot in the field in my mind. You can see another image from the session below
