Yes! There’s Still Time…

To grab that perfect GIFT, of course!!!

It’s undoubtedly been a very busy week for everyone… including our faithful companion, Zuke (who has been known to affectionately greet an unsuspecting client or two when they stop by our office).

But there’s still time to grab a David Nicholas Photography & Design gift certificate for that very special someone in your life! Our gift certificates can be used toward studio sessions, on-location sessions, prints, albums and just about everything you’ll need to experience the very finest in contemporary photography our studio has to offer!

It’s actually a perfect time to treat someone to a studio session this time of year, since weather for outdoor sessions tends to be a bit less predictable during our Bucks County Winters. Or perhaps with everyone home for the Holidays, it’s a great opportunity to have a family portrait session at your house while it’s nicely decorated for Christmas. Or even fit in a “Class of 2012″ High School Senior session that’s light-years beyond the one that the high school yearbook photographer provided last August. It’s never too late to get cutting-edge images for graduation announcements you’ll be proud to send out to family and friends in a few months.

The possibilities are endless!!! And we’re more than happy to bring our creativity to whatever you have in mind. So give us a call today, and we’ll send you on your way with a gift certificate (or two) that’s sure to please those “tough-to-shop-for” folks on your list!!!

We here at David Nicholas Photography & Design want to take this moment to wish everyone a very peaceful Holiday Season and a Happy, Healthy New Year!!! A big heartfelt “Thank You!” goes out to all our clients for helping make 2011 another exciting year for us. We hope everyone has enjoyed our world of image-making, as much as we’ve enjoyed bringing great images to you. As always, stay tuned… and watch this space for more exciting offerings in 2012!

Are You Ready for Some Football?

Yes, it’s that time of the year again… when the end of Summer is right around the corner and our Bucks County Autumn is now less than a month away! That also means “football season” is upon us, and we’re once again providing season-coverage for two of our local-area client high schools: Central Bucks East and Central Bucks South. In addition to photographing both teams for their official “Photo Day” in August, we were also responsible for the photography, layout and design for the Patriot’s 2011 football program ad book cover, which will feature the 2011 Patriot Seniors. Jeffrey Sparks Excavating and Topsoil served as the backdrop location for this season’s Patriots cover photo, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results — not to mention the fact that the client loves it too!!! Here’s a sneak-preview of the C.B. East football program cover design, for those Patriots fans who can’t make it to the season opener on Friday, September 2nd:

Our planned photography coverage for the C.B. East Patriots this season includes the following 6 Varsity games:

Abington on September 2nd; Neshaminy on September 16; Hatboro-Horsham on September 24; Pennridge on October 6th; Central Bucks West on October 14th; and Central Bucks South on November 4th.

Central Bucks South takes a different approach for their program ad book cover — printing a different cover picture for each home game, featuring a different group each time (i.e., football seniors, cheerleaders, marching band, etc…).  The following “Titans Seniors shot”, captured during the team’s Photo Day, will be featured on the Titan’s first program cover for their home opener on September 16th:

Our planned photography coverage for the C.B. South Titans this season includes the following 6 Varsity games:

Council Rock North on September 9th; North Penn on September 23; Central Bucks West on September 30; Hatboro-Horsham on October 21; Pennridge on October 28th; and Central Bucks East on November 4th.

Additionally, based on our schedule and availability, we also plan to give the JV teams for both schools a glimpse into our world of professional photography as well.  The JV teams work extremely hard all season too… and they’ll be “tomorrow’s Varsity team” in the next year or two!

Best of luck to both schools for a great 2011 football season!!!

A Dog’s Life… Perhaps The Simplest of Times… But So Very Precious!

We woke up this morning to a very light blanket of snow here in Doylestown, PA.  And it reminded me that we hadn’t yet posted images from our first snow of the season — back on December 26th! Yes, we missed an official White Christmas in Bucks County by just one day. But given the many Holiday travel plans, it was probably much better for Mother Nature to have delivered our first snow the day after Christmas.

During our Christmas deliveries, many clients asked us about our dog, Zuke. So we thought we’d start 2011 with a blog post featuring our trusty companion. He’s now three-and-a-half years old, and he LOVES snow. It pretty much goes without saying that he really enjoyed the 6+ inches of snow that fell on December 26. And I’d be terribly remiss if I didn’t capture at least some of the fun Zuke had just romping around in his winter wonderland of snow.

Always aware when I have my camera out, here’s Zuke sneaking a peak at the camera while chewing away at a small twig he discovered in the snow.

A dog’s nose is forever active, and Zuke certainly lives up to his breed’s standard.  He would have made a great “search-and-rescue” dog… as evidenced here where he’s obviously picked up on an interesting scent beneath the snow cover.

And fresh from burying his head in the snow, Zuke realizes Yours Truly has been watching his every move.  Gotcha, buddy!

Sometimes there’s nothing more enjoyable than watching our faithful companion simply having a grand ole time — doing what black Labs do best.  So we’ll let the next three images speak for themselves…

Needless to say, we had one tired puppy in the house later that day.  But the time spent seeing Zuke running free in the snow was priceless.  And we have some wonderful images that will always make us smile… which is part of the magic that capturing great images is all about — even in life’s simplest of times!

We’d like to take this moment to thank our loyal clients for helping to make 2010 another exciting year for us.  We introduced more communities to our world of professional image-making in 2010, and we’re proud to have set the bar at its highest when delivering a truly memorable client experience.  Stay tuned for more great David-Nicholas offerings this year!

Meanwhile, we wish everyone a healthy and prosperous 2011, and we encourage everyone to take time out of often-busy schedules to enjoy the simpler things in life.   Happy New Year from the team at David Nicholas Photography & Design!
