The weeks leading up to Christmas are a magical time in cities around the world. Take your photo shoot outside! Make the most of all the wonderful holiday-themed decor and place your subjects in context.
Get artsy with compositions
The holiday season is also the time for arts and crafts. Play around with artistic compositions and the little details that make Christmas time so special.
Document the making of
People spend an unbelievable amount of time prepping for the holidays, especially Christmas, with a proper holiday feast. Document not the beautiful dinner setting, but people working at putting together the famous family meals.
If people have pets, include them
Focus on people’s pets throughout your photo shoot. These little members of the family are fun to observe, and capturing moments with them will certainly be appreciated by the people that love them and would like to preserve little memories of them being part of the festive events that are coming up.
Capture intimate moments
Candid, sentimental moments are the way to go during the holidays. Capture couples interacting and going about their day because chances are they’ll appreciate a more authentic, candid photograph over a staged shoot.
Capture the wardrobe choices
Some people really go all out during the holiday season and bring out their favorite themed outfits. This is especially true for kids, so make sure to capture the little details as well.
We are restructuring our printing space, adding new papers, media and framing options just for you! But in doing so, we will be need to close our doors for a few days. From Friday August 21 and reopen on Aug 25 should give us plenty of time to get everything ready! We are so excited to be able to bring you such a great selection of media for your photography, giclee’ and fine art prints!!
Thank you for your patience with us as we continue to expand our options to bring you more!!

or most Americans, the Fourth of July is going to look a lot different this year. Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many cities and states have decided to cancel their annual parades, festivals, and fireworks displays, along with closing picnic areas and park pavilions to discourage crowds from gathering.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is also urging people to take necessary safety precautions this Independence Day. Addressing the recent spike in coronavirus cases, Robert Redfield, director of the CDC, said, “For the Fourth of July, which is a family event, we want to emphasize that it’s really important that we get back to being vigilant as our collective commitment … to protect vulnerable friends, family, community.”
While you may not be able to attend the usual festivities or gather with friends and neighbors to watch fireworks, there are still ways to celebrate the Fourth of July while social distancing and following the CDC’s guidelines for preventing the further spread of COVID-19. Whether it’s finding a safe way to go see fireworks or hosting a backyard barbecue that doesn’t put yourself or others at risk, below are our top tips for enjoying the holiday responsibly this year amid the global pandemic.
We are taking all necessary precautions to keep everyone safe and healthy. We hope to see you again and help with all of your printing and framing needs! After all, we are pretty sure you took some amazing photos while in quarantine! Time to get them printed up!
With the Nation (and most of the world) on lock-down for a few weeks, hopefully not much longer than that, what will you do with your time? I’m not putting these in any specific order, just a few ideas to start out.
Well, here are a few suggestions:
It may not be your favorite past time,but it has to be done at some point. Maybe even a good deep cleaning, get out the step stools and clean the tops of the blinds and drapes. Reach to the far corners of the rooms, and be sure to get the fan blades as well. Have you changed your A/C filter yet? There are plenty of house cleaning supplies that you can make/use if you run out of the standard store bought stuff.
Bonus: pretty much germ free (at least for a while) and smells good!
If you can, this will be a great time to sit down and start working on the backlog of images you keep putting off or have forgotten about.
GET IT DONE!!
3. TAKE AN ONLINE COURSE
If it’s something you are interested in, there are a ton of places to take a wide variety of courses, from home. Everything from art classes and tutorials to adding a new skill that is related to your career or job, a new language, a new craft, hobby, and just about anything else.
Grab that yoga mat, jump on that treadmill, lift those kettle bells!! I’ll cheer you on from afar! But I’ll be honest with you, I am not that disciplined to work out daily at home, but I know plenty of folks who are. So if it makes you feel good, then do it! (I really should do more myself)
