CHILDREN CHANGE .... PORTRAITS ARE FOREVER!!! 

 

It's Time to Spring Into Action

Warmer weather is right around the corner,which means it's time to get busy and get organized. There's something inspiring about springtime. The slightly warmer air and the blossoms on the trees make you want to get out there and get busy, and for many, that means starting with organization of their homes and their computers. If you're like me and have thousands of photos stored on your computer and digital devices, you will find that Spring is the perfect time to sort through all those photos so that you can find your favorites when you need to. Here are a few tips:

1. Scrap the blurry or random photos that you know you won't have any reason to look for in the future

2. Place your photos into folders that are arranged by year, month and event for easier reference.

3. Once you have a filing system in place, keep downloading and organizing your new photos in this way to avoid having to do this next year again

Yes, sometimes the thought of organizing your home and your life seems like a daunting task but once you get started, you won't be able to stop. Rope in your family and friends to make it more fun. There's nothing quite like sifting through great memories with people you love.

Happy Spring Cleaning!!

Awards

What an exciting weekend I had this past weekend.The Connecticut Professional Photographers Association held their 68th Annual Convention and what a convention it was. We had some awesome speakers that I had the privileged of meeting and learning from. Some of the topics that were talked about are creating work in small spaces, redefining who you are as a photographer, drawing personality and capturing character in portraits, mastering posing to flatter everyone and cinematic headshots. Plus the hospitality and be able to reconnect with old friends and make new friends. The weekend ended with the annual Awards Reception in which I received four awards.I  was the recipient of the Portrait Photographer of the Year Award for the most points accumulated during the year from print competition for the third year in a row. For the fourth year in a row, I received the prestigious PPA Certified Professional Photographer Award, which is given to the highest scoring print by a certified professional photographer at the recently held Connecticut Professional Photographers Association (CTPPA) convention in Cromwell. The award was given to me for my fine art portrait titled, “WE ARE FAMILY”.  I also received the Gerri Karamesinis Award(for use of props in a photograph) for my fine art portrait titled “WE ARE FAMILY” and the Portrait Court of Honor for her fine art portrait titled, “SWETT LITTLE ALANIA”. More than 100 prints were submitted for anonymous judging by a visiting panel comprised of professional photographers from different states who have achieved the Master Photographer designation. Here are the two images that won awards at CTPPA Convention.
