Photos of the Day 12/1

Have been photographing a lot of family photos lately. I wanted to post at least one from two recent photo sessions. These girls to the left are the Rathbone girls, Ellie and Faith. They were incredibly easy to take photos of and as you can see, had some fun.

The two little ladies on the right are the Daingerfield girls, Maeve and Morgan. We worked on a landing on their front staircase because the light was just perfect. Love that photo.

Photo of the Day 11/18

Local farmer, Don Sharp, sits in his "new" pickup outside his home in Stillwater. Turning 84 on November 20, he grows vegetables, apples, and has cows that keep him busy year around.

Don is a character in every sense of the word.

Always ready to talk about world events or local people, offer you an apple, or show you his best looking vegetables.
Don is usually all smiles, but today we were talking about the economy, so... you know.

Photo of the Day 11/15

Pretty dreary day today in Sussex County. Saw this photo on Rte 94 just outside of Newton while headed to a birthday party for a friend of my son. 

He wanted to know why I was turning around, he asked, "you forget somein?"

A rainy day at SCUMA, or "the dump." Jake and I go to the dump at least once a week. Bagged garbage, sometimes bulk, and always recycling. Everywhere you turn there is something interesting, old small signs, big new ones, tons of birds, great people. It never gets old.

I love the dump.

Gwendolyn doing some homework. She is in first grade and has homework almost every night. Call me crazy, but I think that's crazy.
Here she made five sentences using here ten spelling words.

Yes, those are my sneakers.

It has come...the first snow. Expected a little flurries mixed with rain and instead got over an inch in some areas of Sussex County. Met with a bride today at the office and then made my way to my son's pre-school to pick him up early. The roads were terrible. 
Just waiting for wifey to come home and keeping the woodstove going.

My son is about to catch a leaf. He and his sisters spend about ten minutes every morning trying to catch leaves falling from the trees.

I caught one today...felt pretty good.

Starting a photo of the day on my Blog. This is the newest addition to the Yaskovic family. We haven't named her yet, we take that very seriously, but she is awesome. About 12 weeks old, from NJ Puppy Rescue, a mix of chihuahua, terrier, who knows?
She's a great dog.

The Partin Family

This morning I did a photo session of  the Partin family at their home in Sparta. Lucy stole the show without a doubt. Her mom, Bethany, may have called her "hammy" to get her to smile at first but after that, it was her morning.
Lucy didn't hesitate to jump to Keith, her dad, when he asked her if she wanted to.

Then we had Race. Race was not into having his photo taken this morning. He cracked a smile a few times and I was lucky to be there. You can see what a handsome young boy he is.

The kids were pretty excited to sit on the fence, they are usually not allowed. Some may call it a smirk, but I think Race gave me a smile in that family photo below.
Keith and Bethany, thanks for the oppurtunity to photograph your gorgeous kids, hope to here from you soon.

Casting for Recovery at Pequest Trout Hatchery

This past Sunday I had the pleasure of photographing "Casting for Recovery" at the Pequest Trout Hatchery in Warren County, NJ. Kerry Armillay from Sparta Cancer Center in Sparta, NJ hired me to head over and get some photos of breast cancer survivors learning how to fly-fish. Although it was very sunny and warm, the ladies caught a mess of gigantic trout in the education pond at Pequest. Alot of instructors informed the ladies that if they had caught trout the size they were catching it would make their month.

There was yelling, cheering and clapping all around the pond.

The location of Pequest Trout Hatchery is incredibly beautiful!

That is a nice fish!

Coming in to shore!

I have a ton of photos, this is just a few, as a new fly-fisherman myself, I can tell you that good, patient instruction is key to learning and enjoying this type of fishing. The instructors were all of these things and the support staff from Sparta Cancer Center also made sure the ladies had a great time. It was an awesome day!

Time Out

My son had a little trouble behaving yesterday so he had to sit for a "time out." His feet dangle from the chair in this photo. My wife wanted to know if the photo taking was part of the punishment.

The Pledge

This was my wife's favorite photo from the fair this year. They are all 4-H kids saying the pledge before the pig show. These kids are dedicated to their animals and take great pride in showing them.

The Fair

Just finished up shooting the Sussex County Farm and Horse Show/NJ State Fair for the people that run it. It was my second year documenting it for them and had a blast. Here is one of my favorites from the week.
I will post a few more in the next few days. Thanks.
