We want to celebrate all the amazing couples we have worked with or will be working with in the near future!  In short, we think our couples rock and we’re pretty sure their friends and family will agree.  Check out the Facebook Discussion Board for full details.  The contest will be going on throughout the summer before our grand prize winner is announced, so you won’t miss your chance to get in on it.  The winning couple will receive a huge 20″ x 24″ standout print of your choice from your engagement, wedding or day after session and a $100 gift card to your favorite store or restaurant!

I apologize for the blog slacking lately and promise to catch up sometime this week.  Busy….busy….busy….tis the season!  🙂

Happy Memorial Day!  Hope you all had a great weekend!

I have some more opportunities for some of you high school seniors in the surrounding area, class of 2011, to become photography representatives, or “reps”, for MMGPhotography! This is not just for the schools listed above, my area extends all over Western PA and Eastern Ohio, so just send me an email to see if your school is included.

So what is this so called “rep” you ask?  Well, before I divulge that information, let me start with two questions for you!  Do you want amazing, stand-out, hip senior photos but just don’t know how to get them? Are you going to sit in a studio and settle for something that’s going to look like everyone else’s……?

What do I think a Senior Portrait should look like?  I’m going to have to go with photos along these lines….

Alright, so tell me about why being a Senior Portrait Rep is so out-of-this-world amazing already!  Ok, I will.  Here’s what it is.

* Limited to 1-2 willing & deserving Seniors per High School in the area.

* You don’t have to be the most popular, but you do have to be involved in something you can prove will give you a chance to share your photos with a good amount of peers. (For example, “I’m a yearbook editor so I meet with and interview students daily, where I could share creative senior photos other than the required yearbook pose.  I also am very active in the theatre program at school, and you know how us theatre students like to talk about ourselves!  Lastly, I’m an active member in my church youth group so I could easily promote you to seniors at multiple high schools.” Any one of those reasons would be great to describe a good potential rep.)

* In return for promoting my skills and senior photography services you get a FREE photo shoot, along with some FREE prints!

* Lastly, you must be willing, and most importantly WANT, to share your photos to as many of your fellow ‘11 graduating seniors that you can.  You will receive a print credit for every student you send my way!

Think this sounds appealing, then give me an email at mmgphotography@comcast.net and tell me a little about you, in return I’ll send you the full details and list of free goodies.  Oh, and don’t forget to let me know what high school you attend!

Senior Rep sessions will be taking place in April and May, so contact me as soon as possible!

This past year has been awesome to say the least and before starting off the posts for 2010, I wanted to blog some of my favs of 2009.  There are too many to post them all, but keep an eye on the blog this year.  I’ll be posting my favorites from each wedding and session.  I’ve worked with some pretty great people this last year.  I’ve made some really cool friends through my work and through flickr!  Love you, guys – you all know who you are! I’m looking forward to another incredible year!

Possibly my favorite picture of my little one ever. 🙂 Taken at the beginning of 2009.

1st E-Session of 2009 was spent with Sarah & Dave in Pittsburgh. This image was featured by Shutter Sisters last Spring for their word of the month project - "Together".

Some good friends welcomed a new baby!

The kids I got to work with this year were not only a lot of fun, but great posers and gorgeous, as well!

This little guy became part of our family at the very beginning of 2009 and has worked his way permanently into our hearts!

And the amazing and fun couples we got to work with this year, were endless.  There’s just no room to post them all…

Some great locations were chosen in 2009 for our very hip, very cool e-sessions (engagements)!  So here’s a sneakpeak at the “to be weds” of 2010!

And I can’t forget about the amazing seniors and models I got to work with…

you can check out quite of few of them in the gallery on my site.  A special thank you to my niece, Christie, who models for me frequently.  She’s an art student with an amazing eye for fashion and photography and is, also, one of my assistants!

The very lovely and talented Christie!

So there you have it!  My new year’s resolution is to just keep growing – as a person and photographer.  🙂
