Mini Sessions available whenever!

We want to capture you & your families memories and we understand not everyone has the budget to do a full portrait session.  We’ve decided to offer the option of booking a mini session WHENEVER you want!  We typically schedule a full day of mini sessions at a designated location a few times a year.  We’ve had several inquires asking when we were going to do our spring mini sessions, but due to our schedules we have had a hard time finding day where we could schedule a full day of them.

Contact us to book your mini session now!  Weekends in April & May are mostly booked, but weekdays are definitely available.  Mini sessions are 30 minutes long and are shot on location at any location you want within the Greater Lowell Area.  Sessions booked outside of the Greater Lowell Area will incur a small travel fee.  If you aren’t sure where to have your session just ask us, we have lots of ideas for locations.

Sessions are $75, this covers the 30 minute session.  Prints and Products can be purchased a la carte after the session.  Contact us for more information on the products we offer & too book your session today!

2011 Ride to Camp Bike Run | Boy’s & Girl’s Club of Fall River

We donate our time each year to photographing The Ride to Camp Bike Run.  The bike run raises money for Camp Welch in Assonet MA.  The camp is part of the Boy’s & Girl’s Club of Fall River.  The B&G Club has been a big part of my (Drew’s) family growing up. I believe at one time or another EVERYONE in my family has worked there.  My uncle ran the club as well as the camp for many years.  This is an annual event that takes place during August each year and we have been happy to help out and donate our time for such a great cause.  Camp Welch is a location where a lot of my summer memories take place.  (Im sure I could dig up some old photos to prove this, but you’ll have to take my word for it. Hair styles and terrible 80’s clothes keep me from exposing you to such pictures).

The run kicks off at Durfee High School in Fall River Ma…
Amanda went out and captured some shots of the Bikes while out on the run.
The run ends at Camp Welch.  The sound of all the bikes coming into camp is amazing.  One of us ends up at the top of a ladder as they are coming in and is just snapping away, trying to capture all the riders on their bikes. After all the bikes are parked at camp, we usually take the time to capture some detail shots of the bikes.
You know we have to represent for Up in Flames Tattoo!  It’s the tattoo shop we go to for all our tattoo’s. Actually most of Drew’s family has gotten ink at the shop too.  It’s our family tattoo shop!
Food, games and music are at the forefront of the remaining day at the camp. It has evolved into an event that can be enjoyed by the whole family.  Our 3 year old daughter Prue loves coming to camp after the run.  She spent the entire day running around and playing with some of the other kids.
That’s our little nugget in the pink bathing suit going down the slide!
Each year they have a dj during the morning at Durfee and then after the ride they have several bands playing.  This year it was The Criminals, Identity Crisis & Bone Shaker.
Relay races and other rodeo games are set up for the riders to participate in through out the day at camp.  Even if you aren’t playing in the games it is still fun to watch.

The whole day was a success and raised A LOT of money for a great place.  Thanks to all the great sponsors, especially our two major sponsors, Citizens Union Savings Bank & Mechanics Cooperative Bank.

WellPet Portraits | Corporate Portraits

We recently shot a few of the employees and their pets at WellPet’s corporate office.  We shot a maternity session for Erin who works for WellPet.  They were looking to update their website with some images.  We are going to be shooting more of the employees once the weather warms up a bit and everything gets a little greener.  While waiting for that to happen (who knows how long it will be before we are truly in the midst of Spring) we decided it would be a good idea to shoot just a few employees at the office.  This way they had some options for the updated website.

For all those photographers that regularly shoot pets and their owners…I have a new found respect for you!  We had a blast shooting this, the dogs (and cat) were all super cute and really great, but you really just have to shoot, shoot, shoot and hope for the best at times.  We had a squeaky toy and used that to get their attention, but at times that wasn’t the greatest because then they wanted to come over and check us out.  I quickly realized that having too many people around while shooting was a distraction to the dogs (and really the same thing applies with kids & adults).  Once we sent everyone who wasn’t needed away the pets calmed down much more.

Enjoy the images.
