Here's a photo of Alex, one of our photographers and Master Digital Technicians in the studio.  I introduced you to Lydia a few days ago, so as promised, I'm moving on to introduce you to the rest of our staff. 

We met Alex as an aspiring photographer at the early age of 13 or so.  He began taking photo workshops almost immediately, and has gone on to great accomplishments in his photography, winning national photography scholarships and awards.  (Way to go, Alex!)  His work is published in local, state, national and international publications.  Alex also worked for Over the Back Fence Magazine last summer as a staff intern photographer, and his images are regularly published by the magazine.

Alex is studying photojournalism at Ohio University (when not at the studio), and will be living in Scotland for five weeks this summer as he continues advanced training.  So in just a few weeks, Alex will be packing his bags and heading abroad.

We hope to have intermittent reports (and photos) from Alex this summer.  So we'll keep you updated, or you can check out his blog at

Meet Lydia

I want to share some photos with you of our growing staff, and I will eventually get around to taking shots of everyone for the blog.  In the meantime, here are a few photos of Lydia, our summer intern.  Most of these are from her Senior Session, except the one in the wedding dress.  

She isn't actually getting married any time soon, but she was kind enough to model a wedding gown from David's Bridal for us today.   We liked photographing a "real person" in the dress versus a mannequin, and the dress was just the right size for Lydia, too!

Anyway, I want to say thanks to Lydia for all her hard work, and I introduce her to you!

Power & Glory

I'm so excited to tell you about our newest offerings for Seniors!  We call it, "Power & Glory," and it's a great way for Seniors to express their faith in their photos.   The concept has been on my heart for a while, but I wasn't sure what to do with it.    

How does it work?

From your Senior Session, we will create images that are thought-provoking, moving, and expressive.  Then you tell us your favorite Bible verses or passages, or the most powerful words that express your life and faith.  In our digital lab, our team of faithful followers will take very special care to create truly awesome composites that sum up your beliefs.

Take a look at two Power & Glory Composites we created for Nick from Bowling Green, Kentucky.

In Him,

Another video

Hi!  Wow...I've heard a lot of great comments about Levi's video (my last blog)!  So I decided to show you another.  

This is Luke, a 2008 grad from Huntington.  Luke was fantastic, and we loved the backdrops he chose for his session, as well as the edgy digital effects he pre-selected. 

Enjoy the show!

Game Day!

Hi! I just wanted to give you a peak at some of the images we created during one of our "Game Day" sessions for Seniors. This is Levi, an '08 grad at Adena; and Alex was the staff photographer who covered the game. The photos were taken during last game of the season (the Homecoming game). After we post-processed the images and made this short video.
