Infinity Volleyball Academy Pre-Season, “Signing Day” Portraits

David Nicholas Photography & Design proudly announces that we’ll be the official photography studio for Infinity Volleyball Academy of Chalfont, PA — bringing Ladies Volleyball athletes and fans world-class images from select tournaments hosted by the organization in 2010.  Professional studio portraits captured during IVA’s Signing Day festivities have been posted in the online proofing section of our website and will also become an integral part of www.infinityvolleyball.com.

In addition to our standard print offerings, we’re also introducing four distinctive poster styles for Infinity Volleyball Academy members and their families as a “sneak preview” of new poster designs we’ll be offering in 2010.  Parents interested in ordering a 12×18, 16×24 or 20×30 poster should contact the studio to discuss a variety of options, as well as to indicate their preference of poster styles from those highlighted below:

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!!!

In more ways than one, it’s been looking a LOT like Christmas here in our studio offices, as we’ve been feverishly busy fulfilling orders for Christmas delivery!  And this past weekend, Mother Nature joined the program too with a pre-Christmas blizzard followed by a forecast of continued cold temperatures that promise to give us a White Christmas this year — just like the kind that re-awaken wonderful, childhood memories of this festive Holiday.

Naturally, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to capture a “winter portrait” of our now 30-month old black lab, Zuke, in the snow.  But understandably, all good things take time.
