Fun Family Portraits

BRENT PENNINGTON Sara & Tony Tompkins pose for portraits at Nay Ayg Park in Scranton on the afternoon of 02 March 2013.

As we start moving back into spring, it’s much easier to get out with the lights and start making some good portraits again. Also helps that the models aren’t freezing while we do it! So we’re back with a familiar face, Sara, who has been my go-to model when I have ideas and want to do a shoot. She’s fun, easy to work with, and has great personality in front of the camera.


Cookouts & birthdays

Cookouts are one of those traditions that cross between seasons without much change.  As soon as the weather is nice enough to haul out the grill, they start – and keep going until the first snow flies.  (And sometimes a while after.)  We’re at that perfect point in early autumn now where cookouts are perfect in the evening; the sun starts going down, the temperature falls with it, you pull on a sweatshirt and eat a few fresh-grilled dogs or burgers, and life is good.  It kind of makes everything seem right with the world.


Anne Boyle – a tribute

To say that we lost one of the good ones sounds cliche, and may well be, but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s true. Last Tuesday morning we lost Anne Boyle, who was one of the kindest, finest, and most compassionate people I ever had the pleasure of knowing.


Paul’s Reflection

This was an image shot for my dear friend Paul Sevensky (who has just signed on as my first staff writer at my other site, The Roving Photographer). The gentleman in the portrait is Paul’s grandfather as a young man, and his resemblance to Paul has always been very strong. Which is something we wanted to celebrate.


Happy Anniversary!
