Fading blue light on the river

The light that shines amongst the dark

Reflections along the water

Aerial view of the immense buildings

Statue in front of the National Museum of Jewish History

Comcast building stand tall

Wide shot of the city

Pillars of light illuminating the river

I can see my house from here!

A spectacular view of the Art Museum leading into Center City

Lit up like a million lamps

Pick of the Week: Family

After everything is said and done, friends and family is the only thing we truly have in this world. One of us lost a family member this week, and all we can really do is send our condolences. This week's theme is family, in honor of all of the loved ones that we have lost throughout our lives. Let us rejoice for the members that are still around today, and keep our thoughts with those that are gone.

Throwback Thursday: PAFA

These are from the archives of Amanda's time spent studying at the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts. She had attended from 2000-2004. At PAFA, people learned the European way to study art, which was through drawing, painting, and sculpture. These pictures are but a taste of the experiences and exquisite pieces created at PAFA.

Capture the Colors

Making man out of clay. Playing God per se. 

Analyzing a painting

Discussing a work in black in white

Putting passion on paper

Such attention to detail

Depicting the greats

Sculpture and Education are both timeless topics.

Abstract and expressive work

It's amazing how accurate this is

Fine and precise

Adding the muscles

Learning next to the fire

These old bones

Coolest classroom I have ever seen

With the damp, day long rain showers over with, let's crank up the heat with some scorching music! You will notice today that Amanda has picked more than one song. One old and one new. Why?

Amanda: Light My Fire- The Doors

Amanda: When a Fire Starts to Burn- Disclosure

Mike: Soon it Will Be Cold Enough to Build Fires- Emancipator

Throwback Thursday: Interns

Over the years, many interns have walked in and out of the doors of our humble photography studio. All of them have contributed valuable skills that have made us what we are today. We remember all of them fondly and the hours they have contributed to keep this business thriving and growing. Come what may, we utilize every talent to its fullest potential. People enter with open minds and new ideas, and leave with experience, new connections, and unforgettable memories.

Pick of the Week: Bicycles

In honor of the miracle that is Amanda having survived a freak bicycle accident with no serious injury, it seems only fitting that our theme this week should be bicycles. Bicycles capture the spirit of summer and of being free. On every street, you will probably see someone cruising, especially on the beautiful days that summer can bring. Potential accidents aside, cycling is a great way to get around the city without all the hassle of clogged up traffic.

Be safe. Wear a helmet.

Amanda: Bicycle- Frances England

Stephen: Bicycle Race- Queen

Mike: Handlebars- Flobots
