Portraits at Easton Tower

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Nature, Portrait

For the last few weekends we’ve been trying to find a good time to hang out with our good friends, and do family and kid portraits! Today was the day! I found Easton Tower online, and it looked like a great backdrop for portraits.   Once our friends arrived, we went to work, and took a lot of photos! Here […]

These horses were hard at work at the farm. While the humans weren't being lazy either, the horses did all the heavy work, it seemed like!

We were planning a portrait shoot at a park this weekend, but unfortunately that fell through. These things happen, and we will reschedule soon!! So, this morning I decided I should go out and shoot some more outdoor stuff! I decided to go to Cheesequake State Park. Unbeknownst to me, the Hashathon was getting ready to start! It was very […]

Some of the falls, and the bridge going over the water.

Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park

Today we went to visit Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park in Paterson, New Jersey. We had never been, and since it was listed on the Top 35 places to shoot in New Jersey, we figured today was a great day to visit the site. It was a clear day, and not overly cold. The listing is not wrong: there are […]

This sculpture next to the tree with the beautiful fall colors at Princeton University really caught my eye

It was a beautiful day, and my wife and I decided to go outside and enjoy the fall scenery. While the colors weren’t quite what we were hoping for, we still loved the  time spent outside! I also got to use my camera, and take some photos. Here are my favorites!

After our niece and her friend finished a 7 week long road tip from California to New Jersey, we got to hang out with them. Besides listening to all their great stories of their road trip, we also got to go to Holmdel Park. It was a beautifully sunny day, and it was lovely to walk around the beautiful park! As a […]

Today our neighbors came over for a birthday portrait session. We’ve been taking their daughter’s birthday portrait for for 9 years now, and she’s turned into a pro, when it comes to posing for the camera! Here are some of my favorites.

Portraits at Zandvoort Beach

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Portrait

Our nephew and his girlfriend asked us to take some portraits of them. Since we were at beautiful Zandvoort beach, we used that setting to take these portraits. We had a lot of fun, and they were up for any pose I suggested. I think the photos came out great!

Apenheul

Today, we went to the “Monkey Zoo” in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands. The zoo is called De Apenheul and I cannot recommend going there enough. A lot of the monkeys roam free, and you get pretty up-close-and-personal with them! They move fast, so it was a challenge to get good shots! I’m glad I live in the era of shooting digital. This would […]

Archery and Portraits

It’s not often that someone draws a bow in our studio. But, today this cool girl did just that. We did take the necessary precautions, though, and nobody was ever really in danger! We didn’t take just archery portraits!
