P I N this to pinterestmaybe someday this hand will be holding the cup….

Yesterday my family and I had a chance of a lifetime, we got to touch and spend time with Lord Stanley. As many of you know my family owns Southwest Ice Arena in Crestwood, and yesterday the Stanley Cup came to visit the rink thanks to Blackhawk trainer Mike Gapski. The morning started with a private viewing for family and staff and then went outside for a public viewing. After the public viewing there was  a short period of time where we really got to get close to the cup. These are the memories Tom and I said we would never forget. At this time is when I got to really photograph the cup, we found Eddie Olczyk’s name, Ava got to stand next to it, and just starred in awe at all the names, engravings, and history. You could see the dents and bruises the cup has got over the years and the seams where the layers are added. It was a dream and these pictures are priceless. If you were there for the private viewing theimages will be posted in the gallery on July 5th

    Thank you so much for the wonderful pictures…didn’t get a chance to see it up close.ReplyCancel

When the G family pulled up and opened the batch hatch of their suv, I died and went to heaven! Mom brought so many goodies and props, I knew that the session was going to go perfectly. I love the vintage look she was going for and I have hundreds of images to show off. But I wont. These children are just so cute, and really did well with all the outfit changes. I think S needs to seriously consider styling some more of my sessions 😉 Please also check out S and her Mom’s awesome business Bella Vita Originals,http://www.bellavitaoriginals.com/. She made the amazing Family and Sophia signs. They make awesome props for your next session and fabulous decorations for your home.

Good afternoon friends! As I continue to dream and plan for the future of GCP, I often dream of a little natural light space just for newborn sessions. I wonder if you (as a new parent) would come to a studio or prefer your home as the location for a newborn session.  Some pros to the newborn studio:

~I know the lighting and temperature of the room (both make a huge difference)

~I can have even more props, and unique ways to take images of your precious little one (baskets, slings, an actual backdrop stand ;), wood flooring…oh the possibilities!)

~parents will have a comfortable and relaxing environment to be in while the baby is having his/her picture taken. You will have a space to feed and change baby as well.

~the space would be clean and quiet, no one else would be there at the same time. This would be appointment only.

~ I have even thought of setting up a a newborn studio in my own home for a while to test out the idea

~Sessions scheduled at the “studio” would be a lower session fee than the on location session fee. So the option to have a session in your home would still be avaiable

Please leave comments and take the poll to let me know what you think. This space would also be my office space where I could display products, and if you wish, you can come to meet to view your gallery.
