Are you on Instagram or Twitter? If so, you’ve probably seen or used the hashtag #throwbackthursday, or #tbt, a few times. What a great trend this has become. I started posting on instagram with snapshots or portraits of my children from when they were young. It really is addicting. So recently, I started an album on our Wancket Studios Facebook page called Throwback Thursday and the feedback is amazing. If we are friends on FB and you like our page, you just might have one of your portraits from long, long ago show up in our TBT album.
p.s. You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.
Cranberry Pecan Boboli
2 - 8" Boboli Pizza Crust
Brie cheese (I prefer without rind)
2/3 c. dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Sprinkle pizza crust with Brie and bake in oven for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from oven and sprinkle pecans and dried cranberries. Cut into 8 triangles and serve.
*try apricot preserves and sliced almonds for another great combo.
It does seem like stores rush into holidays way to early. Commercials have started, stores are decorated... I wish we could hold off on that until after Thanksgiving. As I wish that, we would be in trouble here if we were not already photographing our clients for the holiday cards and the gift portraits that will thrill the "giftee".
Whether you desire a portrait with holiday theme or a classic portrait that will always be wall worthy, we will design the perfect image. Just give us a call to be scheduled.

It is that beautiful time of year-the leaves are changing, the temperature is dropping and my favortite treat, caramel apples are everywhere. That also means we only have about one month left to photograph outside. Don't be left out in the cold! (ok that was funny) Call us to plan and schedule your portrait session.
Lately, we have been out on location at least once a week at various equestrian facilities photographing beautiful horses and riders. I have to say this has been very inspiring as well as just plain fun.
Some of our clients are lifelong competitors in Dressage or Hunter Jumpers while others have been young riders with just a couple of years experience. The Horses, some are actually ponies have been incredibly stunning animals. I hope to share many or the photographs and paintings that we are creating over the next few months.
This summer we have been photographing portraits both in the wildflower meadow as well as our “Outdoor Portrait Park”. I love this this outdoor area and wanted to come up with a name for it- So It is officially the “Wancket Studios outdoor portrait park”. This beautifully landscaped area is so versatile with so many ways to incorporate it into a setting. There are wrought iron gates and stone steps and walkways, not to mention the hand-cut stone walls that run throughout the trees. I know if I had had this when I was a child, I would have played in here all the time pretending it was my hidden dream castle.
What a perfect spot for family portraits with only a few members up to a larger group. clients tell us they love the three dimensional feeling of their wancket portraits taken here. This area is beautiful from may-the end of October.
Come and play in our park...
