Welcome to an all new weekly blog post Tech Tuesdays! Here we’ll be discussing tech in all forms! It’ll probably be photography but you never know!
This week we’re talking about the future…
Remember Rosie the Robot from the Jetsons? Well, she’s here! Well, not exactly, this one does the work (at least vacuuming) without the attitude that Rosie came with!
I know, I know, it looks like a Super Nintendo on steroids right?!? Well, it is way cooler than that! It runs Linux, uses a “LASER” (say that in Dr. Evil’s voice), maps out the room and methodically vacuums the space you let it out in, returning to base to charge when needed and picking up where it left off! Can you throw away your old vac? Well, probably not, it doesn’t do stairs, or under the couch cushions, you may have to get in the nooks and crannies that it won’t fit from time to time, but that’s okay. With two dogs roaming the studio there is a bit of hair occasionally, I can schedule it to run when we’re not around, or push a button and have it run whenever I want. It’s like science fiction! I know iRobot has had their Roomba around for a while now but that thing is like a drunk turtle compared to the virgo-like thoroughness of Neato’s machines. Take a look at this comparison video…
It’s pretty cool that the majority of vacuuming is taken care of, just an occasional deep clean from time to time!

Come down to the studio New Year’s Eve for a free mini-session to get a Facebook Profile Pic!!
(are you ladies listening? Gift ideas follow…)
Geneva wanted to do something very special for her boyfriend, so she contacted us about doing a calendar shoot. we sat down and brainstormed some ideas for the session and we put our heads together to find all the props and the locations and the wardrobe. This was going to be a birthday present that her boyfriend would not soon forget…
Tasteful images both in the studio and on location along with some very thoughtful props combined to make a spectacular calendar that John will cherish for a long time.
these are the 12 months from the calendar just as they were printed. Had to keep my mouth shut for a while as John’s birthday wasn’t for a few months from the shoot, but I asked Geneva to let me know what he thought of it when he finally got it, and she wrote this…
I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful Birthday gift that you gave John. I got a picture of him with his eyes popping out of his head as he took a glance at the picture on the cover. It was so great, He didn’t even know they were my boobs!!! 🙂 His first question was, “who’s boobs are those?, they are AWESOME!!!” My response, “Mine Duh” He loved the calendar and thought every picture was super sexy and tasteful!!! you and Angel did an amazing job, you can go ahead and post all pictures. I think they are all appropriate.
Thanks again! Can’t wait to do it again!!
maybe I get that picture that she mentioned and posted here as well one day!
do you see that? Up there in the title. This little guy was named after Angel and I, how cool is that? Okay, so maybe his father’s name, and his grandfather’s name had something to do with. But that won’t keep us from claiming that he was named after his favorite photographers.
We had Miguel and his mommy in the studio the same day as Brendan (Kelly and Miguel had been here before to do maternity pictures a few months back), we had so much fun photographing this little guy, we kept trying to get him to disclose his eyes for a little bit so that we could get some traditional newborn pics. But he was way too interested in what was going on around him, we were all trying to be so quiet to get him to lull into sleep but he would have no part of that!
So after a while we figured out that he may need a little more noise than we typically create so we put an iPod on the stereo and pretty soon he fell right asleep. We learn something every time we do one of these shoots!
Mommies love these little detail shots, their babies don’t stay so small forever!
Don’t forget to contact us for your maternity and newborn session, we have a package deal if you do them both! Be sure to plan on your maternity session during your eighth month, and the babies newborn session within their first two weeks!
