So after countless snow threats, and nothing but flurries here and there, we FINALLY got some winter snow. You know it’s legit when you have to bring out the ice scraper and brush off your car. haha. We know it’s February, but better late than never! We guess the Groundhog was right afterall.
Last night, we captured the beauty of Mother Nature’s winter wonderland. We’re planning on bringing some of these to Hallmark Cards in the near future!! 🙂 Get out the sleds, make a snowman and have some fun! Enjoy everyone, and have a great Wednesday!
Speaking to all kinds of people from all walks of life and all types of jobs (including our industry professionals), this unprecedented bear of an economy that now exists is REAL. According to what others are telling us, people are waiting longer to make decisions, cutting back or afraid to spend, and generally reluctant to make commitments. Retail is suffering, and industry is hurting. Have people lost faith in the institution of quality and professionalism, only to settle for mediocrity?
I have stock in McDonald’s and glad to see they’re doing better, but is this a function of the new “taste” of the American public? Based on their perceived economic situation. it’s sad to think that people regard this as ‘good enough’, instead of enjoying the experience of a truly great meal. Imagine if people took this same tact when researching or visiting their physician? There are few things that can replace the “experience”, peace of mind, and joy of a quality product and service.
Thankfully, our business is maintaining a steady keel. We are blessed with great clients. Maybe because we produce a nice product. We’d like to think that people like us. But maybe, just, maybe, it’s because we care.
Traditional ‘Eve’ Party at the ranch was held for the 10th consecutive year. Great to see everyone again (some of you, once a year is not enough), and it’s just amazing to see the little ones getting so big. Thanks to everyone for coming out and for all the gifts. To those of you that couldn’t make it, you were missed, but maybe next time.
Before the party got jumpin’, there was time to reflect with family.
Even our friends, Sandy and Neil, who own Hewa Japanese Restaurant, stopped by. Hey guys, thanks for the great sushi. It was a hit as usual.
The crowd usually swells to around 55 or so, and we were able to capture some of the group in our ‘happy hat’ series. For those of you that think you got away without getting your picture taken, wait ’til next year…….
Over the weekend, we celebrated not only Thanksgiving, but also John’s Birthday. He’s still lookin’ good at a strikingly handsome 29 years old! Don’t you agree?! 🙂
We wanted to share some images from his birthday party. We were graced with the presence of friends and family, and we’re so appreciative of that! Thanks for all of the birthday wishes…you are all so great. Let’s wish John many more years!!
Thanks (yet again) to the oh-so-talented Mark, Capone Photography’s blog is back to normal. WHEW! We’ve definitely been jonesing to post some stuff. We certainly have a lot of catching up to do. We’re really looking forward to posting images from a lot of the things we’ve been doing over the past month. It’s been a busy one, that’s for sure!
We won’t post the “Image of the Week” until next week. This way, it gives our couple a fair opportunity for a WHOLE week. 🙂 However, be sure to stay tuned for something a little special this week. We’re going to try something new, and can’t wait to test it out. WooHoo!!
Don’t worry, we’ve got PLENTY of images to post as the week goes on. We’ve been super busy with Photo Expos, engagement sessions, family portraits, Lindsey’s vacation, and many…MANY weddings.
So how ’bout them Phillies, huh?! Such a wonderful accomplishment for the team, as well as the city of Philadelphia. It’s been a long time coming, but it finally happened. We’re sure that most of you went to the parade, considering there were just over 2 million people there! It was definitely an experience, so for those of you that missed it – we wanted to post a couple images for you.
Hey everyone. We are having some (hopefully) temporary technical difficulties posting images to the blog. It’s a wee bit frustrating, since we are at the mercy of our provider. They claim to be working on the fix.
How’s this weather for you? Cold enough?!?
Unfortunately, because of the intense rain, we had to cancel several shoots down the shore on Saturday. Thanks to everyone for rescheduling.
First and foremost (before we get into anything else), we would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who voted for us in the My Fox Philly Contest. We just thought it was totally cool to be nominated by an anonymous fan! We only caught the tail end of the contest, but with a strong 92 comments (and who knows how many votes), all of your votes via friends, family, coworkers, etc. carried us all the way to THIRD PLACE. We are THRILLED with the results, and being named one of Philadelphia’s Top 5 Photographers is truly an honor. But the biggest honor we have is our clients who are sincerely #1. Thank you, thank you, thank you. “Keep us in mind for 2009.”
