Sara and Mike recently had a beautiful beach wedding in August of 2013, and now it’s time to grow the family. Sara at 28 weeks is ready. They don’t know the baby’s sex yet, I think that’s cool as it adds to the anticipation and excitement for all the family members. We had a nice fun easy going session at DA Visions. Here are a few from their session.

Having fun

I recently bought and have since finished a fantastic book that Glyn Dewis had published, The Photoshop Workbook . I’m constantly learning and I love reading workshop type manuals. Yeah, I’m that guy that can put together anything with out instructions =) When I get the time and “Vision” uhm…DA Visions. plug plug. I like to vision an Idea and then work out how I’m going to send that idea, or message out. Some people call me crazy, but really I like to take life as a gift and try to have fun and bring smiles to people. I realized I spend a lot of time learning and sometimes, yes,  I read in the can. So, what better way to show Glyn how much I liked his book…so much so that I read it in the can =) I had this image in my mind of what I must look like in the “reading room” so I set out to layer one image of me opening the door and another of me in the can. I used one strobe plus ambient and balanced the color and some dodge n burn and you have it. I then sent it to Glyn via email and he replied…

“OMG that is brilliant!!! Absolutely brilliant! Doug can I share this? Glyn”

So, when a master retoucher/photographer asks to use my image and put it on his blog…uh that’s a no brainer. =)  anyway I’m glad to make him smile and get a laugh. And me, well, knowing  I can make someone oceans apart from me laugh and enjoy my image made me happy. As Glyn would say, cheers mate!

Oh, as for the picture click on his blog link 😉

I recently was contacted by Val Shoemaker, press and promoter for OUTSIDE THE WALL Band.
She mentioned she had an up and coming Pink Floyd tribute band that reproduces the music of Pink Floyd faithfully, bringing the true essence of detail to fans of Pink Floyd’s music. She needed some photos to help promote them. Insert DA Visions =) and you got yourself some cool images of 4 great guys, that just so happen to play great music =)

Faced with the challenge that not all four members could be here at the same time…we managed to pull it off anyway. Below are a few of the images we captured over a week’s period.

You can follow them by their Facebook page here
They have a concert coming up this month, April 18th.

OUTSIDE THE WALL Band is a band who is honoring the great band PINK FLOYD by recreating many of their classic songs from THE WALL and ANIMALS. The band is always evolving and adding new elements to their show. Come see the band. Listen to the first 2 songs with your eyes closed, and you will feel like you are at a Pink Floyd show.

Meet the Quelly’s

A super great family. Tight, loving and super busy. I don’t know how mom, Jewels does it. She scrambled to get Issac’s senior pictures and we did family pictures the same day. It’s the only way we could get them both done with their schedules. These were from this past fall. Jewels wanted their images taken at Klein Farms Dairy and Creamery in Pa

Newborn Ryan

Welcome Little Newborn Ryan,  fresh into this world just two weeks ago.

Along with Ryan came big brother Anthony and little sister Peyton. Being the youngest of the three, I’m sure he’ll have it easier 😉

Here is a little sample of their session.
