Presidents and Lovers 2017

February 2017 is a wonderful month.

This is the month of presidents and lovers. Now before you go looking for a political post, or a scandalous post regarding some other topic, remember this is a photography blog.images-for-valentine-day I am talking of President’s Day, Washington’s birthday, Lincoln’s birthday and Valentine’s Day…. what were you thinking?

February brings these dates YOU might be interested in:

February 4th & 5th: Always Potterhead’s Festival which takes place in Oklahoma City’s Farmers’ Market. Tickets are a must! Visit from 9am to 7pm each day. Have fun! Muggles welcome! If you are a Potterhead…and would like a Wizard Worldly Portrait session-Contact US NOW! We would LOVE to do a shoot with YOU! (Hogwarts, House shoot-Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Griffindor, Slytherin, Steam Engine settings, Platform 9 3/4 ….) This session would be either on location or in studio in Broken Arrow–NOT Oklahoma City unless you choose OK City as your “on location” site.

February 10th: Batman Lego Movie opens in theaters all over town. So Who is up for a Gotham Nights Photo Session?? All through the month of February, book a session to shoot a “Gotham Nights” session. Batman has been a big craze for a while now. No matter which version of the Dark Knight you love, let’s have some photo session fun!!

February 12th: President Lincoln’s birthday.

February 14th: Valentine’s Day… the day to celebrate the ONE(s) YOU love! Now why did I say “ONE(s)”….. well, the word “love” has several levels to it. In some language the word is represented by different words depending on what kind of love you are referring to. You love your family (Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, sisters, brothers, cousins). You love your Husband, Wife, Girlfriend, Boyfriend. You love your friends….but not all in the same sense. Those of us here in the U.S. or the english speaking areas usually only know ONE name for that feeling and it’s “LOVE”. So when I say “ONE(s)”, I am talking about any person that may be close to you…NOT just your significant someone. This is the perfect time to get together with that significant someone or with someone dear to your heart because of who they are as a person…and create a memory that represents a celebration of your relationship. What better way to show how special they are to YOU.

February 20th: President’s Day The day set aside to celebrate our presidents.

February 22nd: George Washington’s birthday.

Not everyone celebrates the same day in the same way. However you wish to celebrate the calendar of events this month, let us help you. Book a session NOW!

 

ONE Photograph!

IF….

IF you had to…..

IF you had to pick only ONE….

IF you had to pick only ONE photography…..?

Which ONE would it be?

If you had to pick ONLY ONE photograph that described YOU, the life you have lived….only ONE photograph to describe who you are, where you came from, what you enjoyed, only ONE for others to remember you by—–Which ONE would it be?

Often this choice isn’t ours to make. Tragedies strike. Fires burn buildings, which contain belongs which have memories….and all is gone. Tornadoes take these same things and scatter them to the four corners of where ever or rip them all to shreds. Gone. People leave this world for the next and someone else takes the lead in choosing THEIR favorite photographs….but IF you had to choose, could you?

What would you look for? What would you see? Would you care?

In the digital age, we have cameras to document everything. Mother Nature still decides to thin things out now and again….but our life is in pictures. We post them on Facebook, Instagram, blogs, twitter, and whatever social media platform we choose to play with on whatever given day.

People say once it is in cyberspace, it is there forever. Forever is a LONG time and data gets lost in cyberspace. The photo may survive…but knowledge of the person(s) in it may not be wholly accurate.

What photo would you choose to be you…forever and why? What do you think that photo says about you that you want to have people remember?

Princess of the People
Princess Grace
Rita Hayworth (pin-up)
Christopher Reeve (or Superman)
Linda Carter or Wonder Woman

 

 

 

 

 

 

The photos here are not mine…they are however some I think you will recognize. They are what we see (or saw) of one specific person or idea of a person/character….they help get the point across. What say you?
