Mariah Meadows Horse Show Season Finale (sort of)

This past Saturday (Sept 22nd) marked the successful conclusion of the 2018 Mariah Meadows Fun Show series season.  Technically, there is still one more show to go – the awards / fun game show, where they present the awards for this seasons winners, plus a series of “just for fun” patterns for the riders to compete in.  Hence the use of the words “sort of” in the title.  😊

I had the greatest pleasure of shooting a family portrait session yesterday afternoon at Hamlin Beach State Park. It actually turned out to be a fantastic day to go to the beach.  It was quite hot and a bit humid, but with a slight breeze coming off of the lake, it was very comfortable.

Courtney – Head shot Studio Session

Courtney contacted me not to be a model, but to have a few head shots taken. I then talked her into posing for me while she was here in studio. Courtney is the Daughter of a lady I went to grade school with. It was great reminiscing with her Mother again as we shot Courtney’s session.

Photographing the “SuperMoon”

As most of you who know me realize, I really like photography. But what most of you do NOT know, is that I also really like astronomy! So when this rare – every 18 to 20 year – “SuperMoon” event presented itself, I was literally drooling over the chance to take some photographs of it! Luckily, the weather gods were smiling down upon me, because there wasn’t a cloud to be seen from my viewing location!!
