Thanksgiving!

As we start our preparations for this thanksgiving, taking a little time off, looking forward to seeing family members back home from school, shopping for the big Turkey bash and all the rest, it occurs to me that one of the things I am most thankful for this year is the creative and artistic community here in the Capital Region. In terms of improving our quality of life, there are few things more impactful than the contributions our resident artists and musicians make.

So this Thanksgiving, we encourage you to share the joy by financially supporting at least one artist, musician, or band who has made you smile, think twice, or dance like nobody was watching! This year, Brenda and I have chosen to support Erin Harkes in her quest to release a new album. We have a feeling it’s going to be something really special, and so in addition to contributing ourselves, we’re asking all our friends to take a moment to follow the link, and contribute whatever you can to help her take this next step. We know it will mean a lot to her, and we’re betting it might mean a lot to you too!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Cathleen and Joe couldn’t have been more fun to work with! They picked the beautiful Locust Grove in Poughkeepsie, NY for their photoshoot. When a rare October snowstorm hit Poughkeepsie on the eve of their planned session, they didn’t let 8 inches of snow, power outages or downed trees stop them from having a blast in front of our cameras!

Grace and Dale’s Wedding

Grace and Dale were married in Saratoga Springs, NY on the eve of the October 2011 snowstorm. As if getting married and an impending snowstorm were not enough, this couple had a bit of a fender bender with a Saratoga patrol car on the way to have their photos taken! Luckily, no one was hurt and the officers kept it light-hearted. Check out the photos here!
