Nature on Monday - Trapp Family Lodge, Stowe, Vermont

For today's Nature on Monday post, I'm happy to share another image from my trip to the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont late last year.  I love that they now have cows!  While some things, such as the addition of cows to the pasture, have changed, the charm of the area remains constant.  It's one of my favorite places to visit!  If you haven't been, or if you have only traveled to the area for the fantastic snow related activities such as skiing and snowboarding, you really must check it out without snow on the ground.  ;)  It's a magical place! The Green Mountains are breathtaking! Until next time....

I'm thrilled to announce today that we have officially added sportraits to MKP! What exactly are sportraits?  Well, they are some pretty cool sports portraits...we just drop a few letters to make a single word.  ;) Sportraits can be done on location or in studio.  They usually involve some dramatic lighting.  That's how we get the guys somewhat interested in the process.  ;)  We have a few samples to share with you today.  It just so happens that my little guy (who isn't so little anymore) has been pretty active in sports this year.  I've taken full advantage and had him model for me throughout the school year. I love this tennis shot!  Of course, I think that has something to do with the fact that tennis is my favorite sport. The soccer image is one that the little guy and I worked on for quite some time one afternoon when school was out.  I had an idea, inspired by Pinterest, and he willingly modeled for me while I tweaked the lighting for what seemed like forever!  That is the fun for me with sportraits....the dramatic lighting!  I love it so much! We have a sample with the tennis image in the studio.  These are double matted, float mounted, torn edge fine art prints - stunning!  While these images were not intended for display such as this, I totally think it works. I ...

A great time was had by all at the Currituck Chamber of Commerce's Spring Social this past Saturday!  Stacey and I had a lovely time, as always, at this annual event.  It's my favorite event we cover for the Chamber!  This is the only time each year I get to see some of the attendees, but this is also when many friends have a great time supporting the chamber. Thank you to all you who attended in addition to those who donated and contributed through the silent auction.  A portion of the proceeds supports the Corolla Wild Horse Fund and the Currituck Senior Nutrition Program. Images are now available for download here (there are many more than displayed here!) and are printable up to 11x14.  Should you want to print larger, please let us know and we will be happy to send you an appropriately sized file.  :) Feel free to share!
