We will post as necessary to provide studio updates....
These uncertain times are affecting everyone in some way. Spring is certainly upon us. It is uplifting to see the flowering trees , green grass and flowers popping up! However it is affecting so many upcoming events. , Sports, graduations, proms, dance recitals and weddings have been postponed or cancelled. One thing is for certain LOVE prevails. Below are a few memories from an Engagement session from a couple whos sadly had to postpone their April Wedding.
LOVE will prevail and their Fall Wedding will be even more memorable!
Positive thoughts to our Village Studio Family. We hope you and your families are safe and well. Bob and I look forward to capturing your special memories soon!
We are all going through difficult times right now with COVID-19.
Bob and I hope that you and your families are safe and healthy.
Social media has given us the opportunity to connect while we remain home on mandated quarantine and social distancing. Perhaps it's time we remember some cherished memory! Wanted to share a memory of a session from our Bunny Day Promotion , of a sister and brother who's Mom cherished the photo from years ago so they surprised their Mom with a photo with the bunnies all grown up! How precious ! Bunny Days had to be postponed this year, but we look forwardto creating cherished memories for our Studio Family soon.
Are you ready for 2020 ? Bob and I are on our way back from an inspirational photography convention Imaging USA in Nashville , T N. It has been a fun filled high energy few days!

We are excited to start the new decade. Let us capture your families memories to cherish for a lifetime. please click on title to see a shot video ...
- Sharing a photo I took after Bob and I finished a outdoor family photo session yesterday. With Thanksgiving and the Holidays quickly approaching it reminded me to take a moment and reflect on the many things to be thankful for in our lives. Our family session was a lot of fun and we hope the memories we captured will always remain close to their hearts. Sometimes we all get wrapped up with the hustle bustle of our crazy lives and forget what’s most important our family and friends. So this Holiday take a moment to look back on what you are grateful for.
- Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving, Noreen and Bob...
As I sit here on my back deck enjoying a cold beverage looking at the open field adjacent to our home I am thinking back to the fun we had this fall photographing all those beautiful children. Underclass school photography is very rewarding and keeps you young. We have been photographing underclass children for three and a half decades and have enjoyed every one. To capture that personality, look into their eyes, and of course if your nose squeaks, that gets the look that captures the moment. All the years we have been photographing underclass schools in and around our immediate area, ninety nine percent of familys have loved our results. But let me tell you about my little number game I use when taking class photos. I always say I am going to take 3 photos and hold up 4 fingers, and you know what, those children are quick to tell me I am holding up 4 fingers, what a great reaction, of course I say it's 3 fingers, it is a simple way to get their attention for that perfect shot. Fun and games, and lets not forget my famous yellow duck, and what is his name? It’s Mr kissie (is that a word?) he always ends up kissing Mr Bob. A lot of stories but guess what, time for another cold beverage. That’s enough for this time, one more thing, keep smiling, Mr. Bob...
Just off a 2 day weekend and wanting to post another vacation photo from Cape Cod. ( had to work Sat. ) This pan photo was taken with my iPhone, Amazing the quality that is produced by these little monsters. I will be making a large print of this photo and the quality will be amazing.
I would like to say I am very pleased with this digital era we are going through. The smartphone camers are better and better with every new release. As a professional photographer for many decades, I have see some big changes. I remember my first mobile phone, it was what they called a bag phone. ( still have it ) I loved it, you carried it over your shoulder like a camera bag. Went to the photo show in NYC and did not see another mobil phone there of any kind. It worked great, had good coverage. But as time went by I had to down size to a hand held and then a flip phone then my Black Berry and now on my, I think, 3rd. iPhone. I do say that everyone is a photographer now, I think its great that people are taking interest in creating memories of their life and saving them for next generations to appreciate. We have found here at Village Studio the best way to appreciate and preserve your memories is to design a book to tell your story. Books never will go totally out of style, and you can enjoy them every day. We design and print quality, lay flat books with many covers and page papers that are reasonably priced. One last thing, Back-up, Back-up, Back-up and from your photographer friend, Keep Smiling….till later...Mr. Bob
That's right...vacation is over. awhh... Noreen and I had a great time again this year in Chatham Massachusetts. We rebuilt our energy and sharpen our creative skills. We are ready for the fall fun. Cape Cod weather was, as always good to us, we arrived just after a very unexpected and rare tornado touched down in the area where we stay in Chatham. Crews did a great job getting things up and running. We both took many photos that we will be sharing with you in the future. But for now we excited about providing our one of a kind photo services to the North Hunterdon Jr. Lions football, Woodglen and Valley View schools and others this fall. If you are not 100% pleased with your photos or school photographer, Mr. Bob has the experience and skills to provide the quality and service you would expect from an established studio. Im sure we have a fundraising program that will fit your needs. That' all I can come up with at this time, till next post, Mr. Bob....
Yesterday as I was sitting on my daughters back porch with my grandkids and others around, I don't know why, but I was thinking it's time for high school senior portraits. Think about it, the class of 2020 is here. All seniors should experience the Mr. Bob event. Senior portraits your way, not their way. This is a big year, more than graduation and get out. These years will be remembered for ever, think about it. Mr. Bob has the personally and expertise to have a fun time creating your lifetime memories. Check in with me... Mr. Bob... Oh, one more thing...it was a great time on my daughters back porch....

Hi everyone, this is the start of our new Blog. We had to update things here along with our new sales and ordering software. The learning curve is never over, that is a good thing. As time goes by we hope to post things here that will give you some insight as to what we are all about here at Village Studio and keep you posted as to our coming events. For now this is a test to see how this blog will be presented on our web site. I just checked it out, going good. Mr. Bob
