That looks familar…

If you’re out traveling and and want to know what the weather is like, I would recommend using the Yahoo Weather app.  The Yahoo Weather app and Yahoo Weather desktop displays photos of different weather conditions in places around the world.  They do this by using photos from Flickr members.  Since we here at Umbrella are Flickr members, we have some photos from around the world.  So keep an eye out, you might see some of our work when you check the weather.  Here is a handful of our work on there.

Evan Falk and Nicole Schaeffer are getting married!

Falk-Schaeffer Engagement

Umbrella Photo had the pleasure of taking some engagement photos of the happy couple Evan and Nicole a couple weeks ago in anticipation for their summer wedding this year.  The couple wanted to try something different, incorporating their dogs and baseball into their engagement session.

This led to a pretty difficult engagement session… not from the couple themselves, but their themes they chose to go with.  Having three dogs between Umbrella Photo (Steve has one and Jessie has two), we have gone through tons of trial and error with the turnover rates of dog photos being pretty slim.  Also, who takes baseball themed photos in the middle of winter?  The baseball fields look pretty rough in the winter, not to mention it was 30-40 degrees farenheit out with 10-20 mph winds!

All in all, I think the engagement session turned out great, plenty of good photos of the happy couple!  Here are a couple of them, and follow the link on our facebook page for the rest of the photos.

Natalie’s First Birthday Party

Natalie's First Birthday Party

It has been a while since Umbrella Photo has posted onto the blog.  We are working towards getting a new website up and running, and also some various ground work needed for the upcoming year.  We have a ton of backlogged photos to get to, and I wanted to first show off some pics of my cousin’s first birthday party (baby Natalie).  You may recognize the family, because they were one of the first featured items on the blog when her big sister turned one (Olivia).

It was such a nice day to spend with family and also taking some great photos.  Here are a couple of them, and you can view the rest of the album on our facebook page:

Santa Con 2012

Umbrella Photo spent the day on a bus trip in NYC this weekend.  When we first got there, we were amazed by the amount of Santa Claus’ in the city.  It turns out there was a Santa Convention where they all went on a pub crawl in Manhattan during the day, and then Brooklyn at night.  Although I didn’t take many Santa shots, here are a few shots from the trip:

Dogs Know What the Holidays Are Too!

Luke the Dog

While Umbrella Photo is keeping busy this holiday season, we still find time to see what the dogs are up.  We visited my friends Fred and Sara and spent some time with their golden retriever Luke!  Luke was just a little puppy 5 months ago, but now he has grown to become this very large dog.  He was so excited to have guests over, he just couldn’t contain himself, he was so overjoyed that he peed all over the living room and my leg!

Here are some pictures of the cute dog!  You can see more pics on our facebook page!

A Lot to be Thankful For

Thanksgiving 2012

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Umbrella Photo would is very thankful for all of our friends and customers throughout 2012.  It was only a year ago we formed the LLC to start photography services and we have been busy.  We would like to thank everyone for their support and business this year.  We have met plenty of new people that aren’t just clients, but new friends to share memories and special occasions and make beautiful photos with.

At the dinner table this year, my sister-in-law made a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixins’.  It was a great afternoon spending time with family.  I tried not to take pictures, but after seeing the sides and dessert, I just had to take a few.  Best wishes to all of our friends and family out there during the holiday season!
