You Can’t Know Where You’re Going Until You Know Where You’ve Been…

2012 was a great year for Photo & Video by Joe Goldsberry. We’ve truly been blessed to have met so many wonderful people who started out as clients and became friends. We are also very aware, as a small business, how lucky we are to have acquired so many wonderful clients. As we all enter 2013 together, we’d like to take a look back at some highlights from 2012. We hope we can make some of you smile, as many of you have made us smile, ear to ear.

In 2012 we met a local Bon Jovi tribute band, Living on a Bad Name, and came out to photograph and film some of their shows. Here are a couple of our favorite photos of them, taken at an outdoor concert in Dartmouth, Mass.

We took a poll earlier in the year, and found that our FaceBook audience loves baby photos more than any other!

Some babies were just born to be cute… Maybe “steal the show”.

Of course, when babies grow up, they become kids. Kids can make for some really great portraits. (They tend to take direction better than babies…)

Family photos are meant to last a life time, and this brother and sister will cherish this photo when they have kids of their own.

Traveling is something we do well, and we love looking back to see where that took us…

We photographed quite a few charity and community events. Here, we even got Billy Costa to tip his glass to us at a charity golf event at Pinehills Golf Club.

Another great community event we captured in 2012 was the Abington, Mass rededication ceremony for their 300th anniversary.

And we can’t forget the weddings! This photo is our “most clicked” FaceBook photo. It was “liked” almost 150 times, and viewed well over 2,000 times.

Perfectly beautiful and oh so colorful brides maids!

We’ve photographed weddings of all sizes this past year, and one of the smallest took place at the Church Street Chapel in Whitman. Stacie and Justin had only a handful of family and friends witness their wedding, but this photo shows the love that filled the room.

We were also asked to photograph and film the same wedding, a first for us. The bride and groom, Debbie and Joe, could not have been happier with the outcome. With a beautiful traditional ceremony at The Christ Church in Plymouth, followed by a fun-filled ceremony in Norton, we managed to capture everything they asked for on both photo and video.

Don’t miss their trailer video! This really brings everything to life.

Of course we could go on and on, showcasing so many babies, kids, families, brides, grooms, people and places. But we’ll wrap up this “look back” by showing you the highlight video from one of our most famous weddings of 2012. Deanna and CJ had their Easton Country Club wedding showcased on TLC’s Four Weddings. This highlight video was our most shared blog post, shared 175 times on FaceBook.

Top 10 Reasons to Have the Photo Studio Come to YOU!

We here at Photo & Video by Joe Goldsberry are quite proud that we are successful enough to have a storefront/studio in downtown Whitman. We can photograph you and your family right in our studio, or we can meet you at a local park or other location for an on location shoot. But there are some portrait sessions that simply must to be brought right to your house. A newborn baby session is the perfect example, and little Lainey is here to tell you her top 10 reasons she is glad that Photo & Video by Joe Goldsberry came to her house recently for her portrait session.

#10: You can just stretch out and make yourself at home, well, because you ARE at home.

This little piggy went to the market.

#9: You can keep daddy close by for a reassuring snuggle.

Lainey is the official apple of her daddy’s eye.

#8: If the baby kicks and your wedding rings go flying, at least you know they’re SOMEWHERE in your own house.

Some bling for the feet.

#7: If you happen to have a pup, he might make a cameo appearance into the shot at any time, and that’s ok!

Zdeno walks into the shot, and makes it even better.

#6: You’re more likely to get an awesome candid shot like this:

Mom says “What is it, Lainey?” and Lainey “I dunno. I’m just hanging around…”

#5: If it all just gets to be too much, you can let it out and cry. No one will “shhhhhhhh” you.

Enough is enough. Lainey says so.

#4: You never know, you’re photographer might sneak in a personal photo of something special from your house.

Love4Bub (Hey, how’d he get that picture??)

#3: Bare feet aren’t just ok, they’re encouraged!

Nothing sweeter than babies bare feet.

#2: You can change your outfit as many times as you like, including into clothes that represent MiteTees personalized shirts and Angel Cake Tutus.

MiteTees provided the shirt, Angel Cake Tutus provided the tutu, and Casey & Chuck provided the baby.

And the #1 reason to have the photography studio come to you… cause baby, when it’s time to nap, it’s time to nap. And nobody tells you “no”!

Little baby + big yawn = good night!
