New box mount framing available!

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

We are now offering two new different style box mount frames. The bevel mount and recessed floating mount. The bevel flush mount is a “glassless” style that can be freestanding on a table/desk or hung. To protect the print a textured protective layer is applied during the mounting process. Several frame styles are available and frame depths are available up to 3″. Pictured (left,center) is a black low profile 2″ deep frame. The result is a very unique piece that can compliment any room in your house. The recessed floating mount (right) is very eye catching and is a great way to show off your favorite photos. This is also a “glassless” design with a protective layer applied during the mounting process. The print surface is set lower than the front of the frame and appears to be floating. We gets lots of positive comments on these. Also available in many frame styles/colors/finishes and depths up to 3″

I too think that way about my little girl especially when there wasnt one store we could go to without someone appraching us since she was a baby and now she is 6 and it's still happening only now she entered for the first time in a pageant and won. I want her noticed not for me but for her because it's part of her personality. She wants to be a singer or a model and she is extra special to me because we had a long rough road when she almost died in my arms and became very ill and no doctor knew what was wrong with her. We kept hearing it's viral and every year she would end up in the hospital in icu and put on breathing treatments ect. long story short she was finally sent to a specialist and was diagnosed with a seizure disorder and is now off of her meds for that but also has asthma and is now controlled and hosptial free for a year in a half. I'am soooo proud of her. Please mail me the information my name is Tanya Gohl Po Box 5 Trenton ND, 58853 I want to do this for my daughter Alyssa Hodges who is my miracle daughter!!!

Laura, Tom & Christian
Valley Garden Park – Wilmington, DE

Laura and Tom spent some time with me on Sunday morning – before the temperature crept to 96 degrees. They are going to tie the knot on October 25th at the Union League. It was a great pleasure working with them and especially with Tom’s six-year-old son Christian, who supposedly doesn’t like to have his photo taken! He will have the very important job of being a ring bearer at Tom and Laura’s wedding.
We are looking forward to capturing all the special moments on your big day.

Jana & Brian







Laura - Jana- Your work is amazing!!!! Thank you for beautiful photos and the wonderful family memories at the park. We really love your "picks" - now we have to somehow choose from all these great shots. I also wanted to thank you again for making Christian feel comfortable in front of the camera. What a great surprise to see these today. Regards, Laura

And the winner of the June’s “Best of the Best”  The Ring with the Most Bling is…..

Hara’s engagement ring. Entry #3. Congratulations to Hara and Scott Caplan. They were married on October 20th, 2007 at The Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia. This one of a kind ring(yes every ring he designs is an original!) was designed by Michael Beaudry. They both meet him in person to discuss the design of their rings. The rings were purchased at Bernie Robbins at the New Jersey shore. The outer section is rose gold inlayed with pink diamonds. Beautiful Beautiful!. Congratulations to the two of you! And a special thanks to our other amazing ring entries: Marisa and John entry #1 and Liz and Tyke entry #2.

being the only one of its kind; unlike anything else
• particularly remarkable, special, or unusual
• distinctive, exclusive, rare, one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime, one-shot.


We all know someone that fits this description. Give them an opportunity to show just how unique they are. We believe a photo should be designed around the individual, not vice versa. Show us who you are, and let us document it for the rest of the world.

elena - Great to know that you do those edgy, creative and fashionable senior portraits. My daughter was so disappointed with her pictures the first time, we can't wait to meet you and talk about the shoot. We are so excited!

Parent Albums…there are many choices.

The Couple: Lauren and Brian (Hausmann)
Getting Ready: Brides house in Allentown, PA
Ceremony: Cathedral of St. Catherine of St. Sienna, Allentown, PA
Photo location: Allentown Rose Garden and Cairnwood Mansion(beautiful)!
Reception: Cairnwood Mansion-Bryn Athyn, PA
Flowers: Bob’s Flower Shop
On location Catering: Feastivities
What I remember most: How excited mom and Lauren were, they were so cute, and dad too! What a beautiful, warm and caring family. The exit from the church was very nice, beautiful butterflies were released by all the guests! What a moment that was. There were several butterflies that landed on Lauren’s bouquet and stayed on for a while that’s good luck!! Cairnwood is always a pleasure to work, just an amazing place to shoot!

Lauren at home, her country estate house where she grew up. Great textures and color! The inside was amazing!
oh she’s sooo cute!



Catering by Feastivities, great taste- awesome presentation!
Summer hot pink! FUN, FUN, FUN

France (brides mom) - Dear Mike and Jana, Words can not express the joy that I felt when I first viewed your blog with Lauren & Brian's pictures. I also enjoyed your comments below the blog photos. I always knew that we had picked the right photographer but you proved it beyond any doubt. I want to thank you for your kindness and help when I was so emotional and dealing with long distance planning. Even the videographer enjoyed you two! I appreciate your expertise in deciding additional time was required and handling it for me that evening. Everything that I felt I had missed that day you have given back to me! My only problem is deciding which photos to pick! I wish I had another daughter so I could work with you again.
