REVISITING NOAH | NEWBURGH, NY PHOTOGRAPHER

So a little over a week ago, I had some new equipment come in to test, and coincidentally had it in the trunk of the wifey’s car as we went to a BBQ.  I figured, what better subject to try the stuff out on, than the lil tyke whom I photographed for his first day in this world?  😉  I was just sort of horsing around, which is why Chi-Chi (the uber-babysitter) was in so many of the shots, haha.  Thanks to Sam and Winnie for being gracious and letting Noah be my guinea pig!

Earlier this month, I was asked to photograph the Mid-Hudson Chinese Christian Church‘s VBS (Vacation Bible School) event which took place from July 11-15th (These photos are from Thursday, the 14th).  If you haven’t noticed yet, I really love capturing events with children.. haha.  There’s just something about the energy in the air, and the expressions on their faces that make capturing them exciting and different every time.  It’s also a true joy to watch the youth grow up and be responsible enough to teach and take care of younger youths!  While shooting, I couldn’t help but try out my new Westcott brolly and immediately decide to commit photography faux pas by including it in some of the photos.  But I really loved the way they came out (especially my 24-105’s lens flare), so hey, rules are meant to be broken, right?  😉

DIANE’S 1ST BIRTHDAY | ALBANY, NY PHOTOGRAPHER

For those of you new to the blog, WELCOME, and THANKS for the support and kind words!  =)  Periodically, I will be adding some personal posts along my photographic journey.  The first of which, is my beautiful niece, Diane, who has just turned the big “1”.  We had a nice celebration at my sister-in-laws’ (or is it “sisters’-in-law”?  Sometimes I hate the English language.) apartment in Albany.  Quite the artist, herself, one of them was the sister who made the cake topper for our wedding!  All she needs is your design, and she can create pretty much any cake or cake topper!  But anyways, Diane is such a cutie, I couldn’t resist but add some photos of her celebration on the blog.  ENJOY!
