I took this photo with a point and shoot camera and my dissecting microscope.
My daughter says normal people do not own a dissecting microscope. She's probably right!

On top of that she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet.




March 13, 2009
Got out today and photographed some rubbish! I LOVE photographing rubbish!

They came, they saw, they beaded!

Twenty jewelry makers descended upon the studio to create jewelry under the direction of the Jewelry Gurus from Pish Posh Design Company! And guess what? We created over 50 pieces of jewelry which will be donated to the women and children staying in the shelters supported by Susquehanna Valley Women in Transition for their holiday party! We had a Great Time and supported a Great Cause.

They say diamonds are a girl's best friend, but I bet beads are a close second.

Thank You Oksana for helping out!

Guess which photographer's image is on the Front Cover of the new Riddell Helmet Calendar!
Let me give you a hint; his name rhymes with David Cooney...OK, that's his actual name, not just a rhyme.

Anyway, Riddell is THE helmet company. 83% of all Pro Football Players wear a Riddell Helmet into battle and 62% of all Division-I College players wear a Riddell Helmet!

The image they chose for their cover is one I captured after the first game of the 2005 season. I wanted to do something special for the players because they were celebrating the 100th year of Mifflinburg Wildcat Football. I wanted an image that showed triumph and victory as well as the grittiness of the game of football.

So I made poster prints for all of the players and also large prints for the Team Room and Weight Room. One of the Riddell Helmet Reps saw one of the images and the rest is history!

That's William Whipple (Jersey #50) right in the middle of the photo.




October 22, 2008
Kelsey!! You have a style all your own and I love it!!
Great outfits + great model + great attitude = great photo shoot!

October 15, 2008

October 04, 2008
Jake came in for his photo shoot and we also traveled to two different locations. One of which is the gym where he works out...and where he has benched 315 pounds!! That hurts me just thinking about it! Really I am getting chest pains just pondering that! He did a super job. And Thank You Missy for being such a great assistant.




October 03, 2008
Miranda!! If you were any crazier it'd be illegal. It's OK, you get it honestly! You did a fantastic job with your photo shoot, inside and out. Thank You Selina for helping with everything and not pushing Miranda in the pond.
