Ariel and Zach are an awesome couple and were ready to have some fun with pictures in the snow. Ariel is an aspiring model and also wanted some new images for her portfolio. I used an off camera light shot through a octobox to give her a crisp, clear and colorful look. She is a natural in front of the camera. Zach humored us and was a big help behind the scenes.
This photo session with Ariel and Zach was my first time shooting couple portraits in the mid day snow. Most photographers will agree that the lighting can be a challenge … with so much white it’s easy to blow out highlights and kill the color of any scene. In this session I set out with all my gear to one of my favorite locations in the city. Snow, drizzle, and an empty rock tower…. this was going to be fun.

Week #42 on the “Pics of the Week”. Week # 2 on the year.
Its just the second week into the year and things are already starting to pick up for me. I truly thought that since most of my photography was outdoors, i’d be spending a good portion of the winter staring out the window – fortunately thats not the case. Its been awesome… since the holiday’s I’ve already been contacted by two dance studios, one quartet, and a handful of parents – including a newborn session this weekend. 2013 is starting off well.
As far as the eye candy goes, a few of my favorite photos from other photographers below. Its been such a busy week I have ignored my feed reads so I don’t have any great links to share.
I DO hope to have a few new gear recommendations out soon. Since landing a few indoor gigs, I’ve had to add some equipment to the arsenal, so stay tuned. (Thank goodness Amazon had a 6 month interest free card available…)
Enjoy the pics. Enjoy the weekend.
High school seniors have got to be my favorite subjects to photograph. Seniors are filled with personality, they each have their own unique styles, they are excited about their future, and most high school seniors can follow direction!
Below are a few of my favorite images from the Wachusett Regional High School graduating class of 2013. This past year I met some really cool kids and I wish them all the best as them move on to a new journey in their lives. Wachusett is filled with such a diverse group of style and personality. The Wachusett region is also filled with some great locations to photograph. Its so much fun putting together a photo session that fits each senior’s and highlight’s their very best.
Happy New Year to my friends and followers. May it be your best year yet. I have a lot of great projects and plans in the pipeline for 2013 so be sure to stay tuned as they all unravel.
I took a few weeks off for the holidays so you will have to excuse the lack of links. I make an effort each year to stay offline and spend the time with my family for Christmas. Luckily my Pics of the Week contributors continued to add some great work to our group on Flickr.
PICS OF THE WEEK is where I share creative photos and interesting finds from the web each Friday. The purpose is to share the creativity of others and give you something to do on your lunch break.

**The featured image above was taken by Frank Guido from Staten Island NY. It is my favorite image from this past week by far. Such a great and funny little story. You can see Frank’s photo stream here.
