Royal Ball 2009

Washington is a great community with many individuals wanting to make everyones future better, and brighter. This week is a week of giving. This Saturday we had the privelage of photographing St James School's Annual Royal Ball. It was hectic at times with all the great people and energy... Linda, Rachel and Nancy worked over 240 guests coming in the door-we got some fabulous portraits. The theme for this year was "Pirates of the Carribean." There were some great outfits! We gave everyone the option of having their portrait taken with the special Royal Ball Theme decoration or one of our professional backdrops.
A special thanks to the Royal Ball planning committee. TONS of volunteer hours went in to making this evening a success. Not to mention the wonderful meal catered by Sweetings , excellant service from parents of St James' students and Parish members, and the time donated by Greg Giardino to auction the list of donated items. The night was great and we appreciated you choosing Drish Photography to capture your event. Can't wait to see whats in store for 2010!

Beautiful Day!

Early this afternoon I simply could not stand staying in the office another minute so I hung up my mouse and rode my bike to West Chester. It was an awesome ride and all the big Dodge trucks were so courteous and gave me plenty of room to ride. Early in the cycling season I always forget about headwinds. It was so great riding to and I felt fast and strong...but of course I had a tailwind. When I turned to ride home the headwind hit me and I s l o w l y rode home.
Back to work! I am finished with the processing of '09 Seniors and Emily was my last. What a beautiful face!
Have a great week and go for a walk or bike ride!

You've been DRISHED!

This afternoon Amanda and I traveled to Iowa City to enjoy a cup of coffee at the downtown Java House and to meet some friends for a fun afternoon. It was such a beautiful day so drank our coffee sitting outside along the curve while watching people pass by.
Cameras in hand we ventured to our favorite wonderland wall and then the alleys. These girls were so much fun to photograph! Kristi was a graduate of Iowa City West last year and I had the honor of taking her Senior Pictures. Jenna and Nichole were two of my seniors this year and Whitney will be a senior next year. These girls have been friends for several years and are four time state champions in track!!!!!!
I was thrilled when Krist and Whitney brought their parents Karen and Steve! I think they really enjoyed watching the process and were thrilled when we asked them to join in. You'll see some of the fun we had in the pictures below. We took a little time to take a nice family portrait and a nice portrait of Whitney.
When we were finished we ventured back to the Java House and sat down to review the pictures. Kristi said to Whitney....."YOU HAVE BEEN DRISHED".
I will post more pictures in the days to come.

Molly....You Rock!

Today I am highlighting Molly from Mid Prairie High School! Molly is an awesome athlete and an amazing young woman. I am always thankful when a Junior contacts me early to take their SENIOR PICTURES! In Molly's case I was honored and thrilled at the same time!

A couple of years ago I photographed Molly's sister. When I have returning customers that tells me I might be doing something right.

Have I mentioned lately... THAT I LOVE MY WORK!

Thank you Molly! Your SENIOR EXPERIENCE was one to remember!

Thank you Iowa City

Iowa City SENIORS and your have been awesome!
The young man in the above video is Chad! We started the session at the ICW football field before venturing into the downtown alleys! It was an eventful morning with some pretty neat memories. In one of the images you will notice Chad wearing a cowboy hat! This hat is not Chad's but belonged to a man sitting under a stairway enjoying his life and enjoying watching me climb up an down the fire escapes photographing Chad. The gentleman took off his hat and gave it to Chad not only to wear for pictures but to take home! This was one of those moments where you really had to be there to appreciate it.
Anyway...thank you Chad, the man under the stairs and all DRISH SENIORS from Iowa City.
