High School Senior Portraits • Some College applications are requiring photos!

The college application process can seem intimidating, especially if students don’t have parents or siblings who have already been through it and can offer advice.

Since there are so many steps, such as writing an essay and obtaining letters of recommendation, experts say a good way for students to get started is to create a to-do list during their junior year of high school.

Though there is often prep work that happens beforehand, students generally begin filling out college applications the summer between their junior and senior year of high school, experts say.

Some College applications are requiring photos!  Especially performing art schools and conservatories.  It is hard enough to get accepted, make your best impression with professional admission pics!  A great way to complete your package!

Frank Furness home in East Mt. Airy from 1885 asks $615K

Yep, that’s a Furness all right

This large home at 7318 Boyer Street in East Mt. Airy stands out with its whimsical exterior, a mishmash of Victorian stick style and Queen Anne architecture. It all makes sense though once it’s learned that Frank Furness was the brains behind the design.

The 3,400-square-foot house was designed by the local architect in 1855 and built by Francis Innes Gowen & the Tourison Brothers as part of the Gowen Estate. The period architecture is evident from the get-go and the home’s bottom half is wrapped Wissahickon Schist stone.

Behind the front dutch door are hardwood floors, French doors, big bay windows, and original fireplaces, including one that features Henry Mercer tiles. There are also two side porches on this level, including a screened-in sunroom and an open deck off the updated kitchen that looks over the property’s big backyard.

Arden Theatre Company Dominates Barrymore Nominations With 24 Nods

Here is the complete list of nominees.

BY 
On Monday morning, Theatre Philadelphia announced the nominees for the 2016 Barrymore Awards for Excellence in Theatre, and the highly competitive list illustrates just how far our theater scene has come. 

As far as theater companies go, the Arden dominated with a whopping 24 Barrymore nominations, but smaller companies came strong, too: Theatre Exile received thirteen nominations. And we see that a lot of our favorite local stage talents are up for big awards as well.

While most of the awards are just about the recognition, four Barrymore awards bring with them real money: Over $75,000 will be handed out this year.

Below, the complete list of 2016 Barrymore Award nominees. Winners will be announced at the Merriam Theater on Monday, October 24th at 7 p.m.

A $30,000.00 photo

What a great article!

7.27.16-VanessaJoy-HompageBlog

I love when a client doesn’t think twice about the cost of a session.  The investment of memories is more than the time in front of the photographer.  The planning, editing, culling and story telling take a lot of time, innovation and its expensive to own all of this equipment.

Vanessa Joy is a professional wedding photographer, small business coach, author and public speaker located in New Jersey. She really hits the nail on the head with this ever poignant article.
