Memorial Day

May 28th, 2007 by dMdC Photography

The last Monday in May is actually not just a day off so we can stay down the shore an extra day, it is a day off from work for a reason.  Memorial Day is a day that we are to remember those that have died in our nation’s service.  Don’t forget to take a moment to remember the soldiers who gave their lives in order to provide the freedom we so enjoy today.

Boredom

May 26th, 2007 by dMdC Photography

Ok, so I don’t know if I’m going to hell in a handbasket for this one but during my nephew’s first communion, lets just say the crowd wasn’t getting rowdy.  Plus, they don’t let you take pics of anything anymore.  But a photographer with a camera gets very itchy when they can’t push that trigger.  Well, there was my niece sitting next to me, camera in my lap…why not entertain ourselves?  We got a few giggles out of this and we didn’t manage to get ourselves thrown out of the church.

Joey’s 1st Communion

May 25th, 2007 by dMdC Photography

My nephew’s first communion was the other day and seeing him all dressed up in his suit and tie brought a smile to my face.  Not because he looked so dang handsome, which he did, but because you know that he couldn’t wait till the first second he could rip that tie and jacket off and go get as dirty as an 8 yr old possible could.  Now I may be this kid’s aunt, but ya can’t tell me this boy isn’t a heart breaker in the making.  I can see the trail of broken hearts already.

Shoot Sac

May 23rd, 2007 by dMdC Photography

Every once in a blue moon an item falls into a photographer girl’s life thats actually useable AND fashionable……thats right ladies and gents, I said fashionable.  Well, today my little beauty arrived in the mail and I must admit, I think I let out a little yelp when I saw it.  The just released Shoot Sac was designed by the super talented SoCal photographer Jessica Claire and no detail was spared.  Yes, its a bag for your lenses and any other goodies you may need while shooting but dang, you get to pick out a cool fabric too!  Plus, there are TONS of fabrics to choose from which means that I will probably be ordering another one.  You didn’t really think I would be caught wearing the same thing twice, did ya?

Olivia

May 22nd, 2007 by dMdC Photography

Meet my niece’s and nephew’s dog, Olivia.  She was named after my favorite cartoon heroine by Ian Falkoner….and I did get a vote on naming her, woo hoo!  Olivia is slightly chunky, ok lets be serious…she stretches her skin to full capacity.  She also resembles a bat and loves to chase around a perfectly slobbered tennis ball and has a wonderful habit of placing it on your lap when you decided to wear your brand new pair of white pants.  The cutest thing about her is that she will curl up on your lap and let you pet her like a little baby.  At this point, she finds it very humorous to demonstrate her mastery of flatulence.  Dogs have no manners.

Renegade

May 20th, 2007 by dMdC Photography

I had a gig yesterday at the beautiful Villa in Mountain Lakes and when I tell you they had the best band I’ve ever heard, I ain’t kiddin!  There wasn’t one point that the dance floor wasn’t full.  They are located out of Jericho, NY.  If anyone is still looking for a wedding band, give David Clark a buzz at 516-932-2263 ext. 16.  Oh by the way, they are Yankee fans and I STILL loved them, thats gotta tell ya something.

The Subway Series

May 18th, 2007 by dMdC Photography

Twice a year here in NY an ugly battle takes place between the NY Mets and the NY Yankees or should I say the battle between the Yankee fans and the Met fans.  Winner gets bragging rights for the rest of the season.  Although, without fail, if the Mets win the series, the Yankee fans are always kind enough to point out how many championship rings they have, how many times they went to the World Series, blah, blah, blah.  Go METS!

Play ball….

Mamasita Day!

May 13th, 2007 by dMdC Photography

Its Mother’s Day for all of you but around here, every day is Mother’s Day or else!  The only exception is that on this day, we are required to bring presents.  Growing up, I fought my mom tooth and nail, I am sure she appreciated every moment….right ma?  Now she has become my buddy who still needs to remind me to brush my teeth and wash my face any chance she can get…..if it wasn’t for her, I would probably be full of pimples with rotted teeth.  Just kidding mom, don’t know what I’d do without you.
