We have just completed the final touches on our NEW Centrum Senior 2014 Program.
We are looking for high school juniors interested in becoming a Centrum Senior. They get free photo sessions, some great images for their facebook page, and the ability to get free prints.
OK, What’s the catch? Only one. You get to tell your friends how much fun it was to have your senior photos done by Centrum Foto Studio. That’s it!
Interested in becoming a Centrum Senior?
See the Centrum Senior page at the top of the blog for more details or stop by the studio.
All of my 2011 Tulip Festival photos are now on line for you to see! Click the "sessions" tab, to see the categories. All prints are available to order on line or here at the store! These are 3 of my favorite days in Orange City and I love to capture people participating in and enjoying the Festival! Have fun!!
March madness is Here!
The Northwestern College women win the NAIA National Basketball Championship and Northwestern men got as far as the first round in their championship tournament.
At Centrum it's Madness in March too; only Basketball isn't the cause. We have special photo sessions, graduation card orders start happening, Home shows in Le Mars March 22 (4-8PM) & 23 (10AM-4PM) and in Orange City March 29-30 (4-8pm both days) with attending a Sandy Puc seminar squeezed in between on the 27th to keep us hopping right now. And, very soon, we will have the start of the Iowa spring wildflower season which will keep me with my eye and camera on the ground for the next 2 months. I'll keep you updated on the progress via the blog and facebook.
See our monthly specials and upcoming events page for more details on the store events.
Fall continues to be colorful in iowa. Some of the best color I've seen in the 20+ years I've lived here. Hope you can get out there and enjoy the color. Here are a few examples from the area.
Today starts a new page at Centrum Foto. We will be closed July 14-20 for "refocusing" the store starting today. (I know, a bad play on words) We have had dreams of what we wanted the ministry of the store to be and it's time to implement them. In order to accomplish that, we have to move products, backdrops, store fixtures, and more. Too much to do and be open at the same time. I'll keep you updated as the project continues!
Our Grand reopening will be July 22-23. We will be offering free coffee, tea, lemonade and cookies and drawings for prizes including a FREE high school senior session.
It's Good Friday and the perfect day to "Consider the Lillies". Not just Easter ones either. When Jesus said this, it meant any of the wildflowers that were growing in the area, including Tulips :-). Here in our part of Iowa, there are Trillium that start off the wildflower season for me. They are up as seen below. Next will be the Bloodroot.
So Take some Time to get out this weekend and Consider the Lillies!
Okay, not me personally; although it could be argued by some that I fit the title. Here is a sample of my latest photo challenge to myself: capture individual snowflakes. This was my favorite from last weekend. Amazing to see the beauty God creates by freezing water.
With the forecast for more snow this weekend, I plan to use what I've learned and improve my technique. Stop back next week to see how many different shapes I captured. By the way, I practice "catch and release" with all snowflakes.
Have a great weekend and take some photos to remember it.
