A family of Tigers!

Well, Tiger fans anyway! This was such a fun idea with a fun family! The family is season ticket holders and wanted an urban session at the ball park. Why haven't I ever thought of that? Thank you for suggesting such a fun location and enjoy your sneak peak!

Baby Abby

I photographed Abby and her family last week and today I had a session with just Abby. She was such a little star and I couldn't help getting her Mommy in a few too. As a matter of fact I LOVE the photo of Abby and her Mommy. You can see how kind and loving she is and you can tell how safe and content Abby feels when she knows her Mommy has her. Thanks for taking a peak!

so sorry!

I'm sorry I haven't been posting as much! I've been busy pretty busy!

I just wanted to give out two reminders...

First, Christmas is coming fast! I know you don't want to hear it and you can't believe the stores already have trees out. The session cutoff date is November 25. That is only 2 months - a little over 8 weeks! This is an extremely busy time of year, not only for me, but also photo labs, shipping and packaging companies too. Call now to schedule your appointment at 586-855-6549.
*If you want Christmas cards, I would suggest your appointment be held by the second week in November so you will have a little time to get them in your hands and addressed and mailed before Christmas.

Second, I wanted to remind everyone about my referral program. If you recommend someone to me and they schedule a session, you receive a thank you from me. The new client does need to mention you referred them and you will each receive a free session. Two referrals will get you a free session and an 8x10. Four referrals you will receive a free session and a 16x20. Ten referrals and you will receive a complimentary session and a GORGEOUS 16x20 canvas!

1 referral - Complimentary Session($100 value)

2 referrals - Free Session & 8x10($140 value)

4 referrals - Free Session & 16x20($295 value)

10 referrals - Free Session & 16x20 CANVAS ($440 value)

This is my way of thanking you. I really appreciate when you talk about your experiences with Jamie Fodale Photography to your friends, family and coworkers. Word of mouth is the best advertising for any company and I thank you for all or your support.

These are two are so cute! I just love big blue eyes. Niklas was such an easy going baby and he just lit up when he heard his big sis. Malea was so sweet, but she had an agenda and it didn't have anything to do with getting her photo taken. She did let me a get some with a little help from candy and kiwi;) I think these two are adorable. As always thanks for looking.

A new family

I would like to welcome this family to the Jamie Fodale Photography family. This is the first time I photographed them and it was a pleasure. They are such nice people and their dogs are so well behaved. Isn't Abby adorable? Look at those huge blue eyes. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. Thanks for looking.

Wedding shower

I have known Rachel since we were little girls. She is getting married in just a few short weeks and I will be photographing her wedding. Here are a few fun photos of her wedding shower. Thanks for looking.
PS The last photo is of her mom and dad.

My Anniversary

Today my husband and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary. We actually went out last night for drinks and to a show, but before the show I received these gorgeous long stem roses and a box of my favorite chocolates. It may seem cliché, but I loved it! We had such a nice evening. Thanks for taking a peak.

Well, I changed my mind again. While I still love the new finish on some of the photos (it's fun and edgy), I think this is perfect! What can I say I'm an artist and am allowed to be a little flaky, right? I just love how bright and colorful these images are. Thanks for taking a peak.

Isn't she beautiful? oh my goodness and full of energy! She LOVED being outside. I love these photos so I wanted to try something new on them and I really like it! The first two are just my normal editing and I posted a duplicate of the second image so you could see the difference. It makes her cute little face just pop off of the page, don't you think so? I'm going to have a tough time narrowing down the choices for her mom and dad and then they are going to have an even tougher time selecting their favorites! Hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed her.

Constantin, Take Two!

Well, I went back to see baby Constantin. If you remember I was there last week and he would not crack a smile. Even though he didn't have a wide open, belly laughing smile, I think this is still cute. I can't wait to show his mom and dad all of the photos. Thanks for taking a peak.

Photographer's Murphy's Law

I know I keep repeating my self, but this is a photo I just found from earlier this summer. I was on vacation with my family and I was just trying to get a snapshot of the boys playing. I was not going for a portrait, but, well, it would have been nice to have three faces;) Hope you at least got a laugh today!

The Roseville Bronco's beat the Mustangs in a thriller Saturday morning. I love sports and have never been to a flag football game. It was lots of fun and very exciting. Some of my friends son's play on this team and for far too long, I have promised to photograph the action. Well this was the weekend and the game was scoreless until 1:16 left in the 4th quarter. There was a game saving tackle at the end of the game. You can see the coach lifting the star tackler in the air. If there are any parents viewing these images and want copies, please give me a call at 586-855-6549 and I will do my best to get you copies. There are plenty more photos - I wasn't able to post them all here. Thanks for looking and enjoy!

PS The second photo, player #6, was the only touchdown of the game!

Pink SUN!

We had the most beautiful sun set today. The sky was a firey orange and pink. I had to take the boys out for a few photos. I have been trying so hard to get a nice shot of them together. I'm not talking smiles, I mean good lighting, nice outfits, both looking in the same direction - doesn't even have to be directly at my camera. Today I definitely captured some keepers! I've been trying to accomplish this all summer. I'm longing for a 30x40 or 30x60 canvas for my living room. Now you might say 30x40? Yes, 30x40 or even 30x60. My house is a tiny bungalow, but let me tell you the days of putting an 8x10 on your walls are over! An 8x10 is not a wall print. If you check out my pricing my wall prints start at 16x20. Look around your home and in stores. Can you find art work that is 8x10 or smaller? Try hanging an 8x10 over your sofa or bed and it will get lost on your wall. Your guests would have to walk up to it to see what it is on your wall. I would only recommend an 8x10 on your wall if it is in a grouping. In my small living room I have a wall grouping of nine 8x10 - 3 rows of 3, two 16x20, and I want a 30x40 and two 15x30's. You might think I'm crazy and my walls will fall in, but trust me, I love interior design as much as I love photography and it looks clean, updated and gorgeous - if I do say so myself. ;) Oh, did I mention our TV is mounted on our wall too? Just wait until I order my new canvases, I will take photos of my room and post them here for you to see and judge for yourself. Give me a few weeks! Just something for you to think about, size does matter!

PS I should mention the first photo of the house, is not mine, but one down the street from me. The second thing I should tell you is that the third photo was taken 2 months ago. Same outfit, same location, same time of day but notice the shorter hair cut.
