As usual, we found ourselves at Riverfront on Sunday afternoon. FC played Pocono Mt West, and had a good game. Even with only 1 sub. When these kids get to their school season, they won’t know what to do with all the subs.
North Pocono was down a few girls as well this week. Must have been something in the air (Valentine’s Day). NP did not fare as well. They gave it a strong fight, but did not win.
As if one afternoon wasn’t enough, we went back to Riverfront for more on Monday. This was just a pick up game. The kids allowed us to stick a camera in the goal while they played. This is something we have been wanting to try for a long time now. We didn’t do too bad for a first try. We’ll make a couple more modifications and try it again.
Here are some of our favorite shots from the weekend.
Yesterday kicked off our babies and toddlers contest. Every child who had a paid session in 2009, was entered into a contest. One photo of each child was placed in the gallery on both our website and facebook
Check out the gallery and vote for a child!
Rock the Frock! What’s that? A lot of people have been asking that same question. Rock the Frock is a fun way to showcase your dress after your wedding, prom or semi before you send your dress off to the cleaners. How many times have you purchased a beautiful dress, worn it once, cleaned it, then put it in your closet never to be seen again? Some people may know this as Trash the Dress. We DO NOT trash dresses. Unless you want to. We simply showcase the dress in a fun way.
We recently put a casting call out to our facebook fans, to see if anyone was interested in these sessions. The response was great. The response to the images we’ve done for these has been great also. Go to our facebook page to see them.
Mel twirled around in a cornfield with a cowboy hat, cowboy boots, and her big beautiful dress. Kcee went for more of an edgy look with her baret and leather jacket. Jenny and Lizzy went for more of a glamourous look, since it was so cold the day we had theirs scheduled. Emily and Christina went on an adventure with us to a few different locations. Barns, fences, old churches and cement steps are some of the places they posed in.
These sessions are to let you, your personality, your beautiful dress shine. We have lots of places that we can shoot. The girls really have a blast when they do these.
These are some of our favorite images from these sessions.
This weekend we will be doing production stills for a web series for Nickelodeon! A production company, Small Media Extra Large will be filming their web series, “Exit Strategy”, a story about a girl who lives in a funeral home.
Part of the filming will be done at Snowdon Funeral Home, and part at the North Pocono High School.
They are looking for extras, so if you know anyone who is 18, 19, 20ish; or older but looks like a high school student, please give them our name and I’ll give them the info. We’ll post some photos as we get them.
The Ball of Hope is a charity event run by the American Cancer Society. This is our second year shooting this event and I always have a blast. So many inspiring stories. Hopefully some day, there will be a cure for this awful disease.
The ambassadors who helped plan the event.
The theme was “a Return to the Classics”
The Exact Change Band
This car was donated by Toyota to be raffled off at the Ball
This lovely young lady came to the Ball this year to say thank you. Because of the donations last year, she was able to go to Camp Can Do this summer. This is a camp for kids with cancer. She was able to find kids with the same fears and hopes that she has. She also told us that she is now cancer free! YAY for her! I hope there are more that are able to say that!
I cannot do a blog post about cancer and not talk about Sandy. She is the biggest supporter of the ACS that I know. This woman works two job, is a mom and a grandmother, and is a good friend to us! Every where she goes, she promotes awareness. She is usually in the background, volunteering all of her time to this cause, so I just wanted to say, thank you Sandy, for all that you do!
