Donald and I had an absolute ball photographing Mayor Brian P. Sullivan’s 2nd term Inauguration Ball on Saturday, January 27, 2018! (see what we did there?). It was an evening of amazing food and service, thanks to Tori Denton and the entire Tekoa super tea; beautiful decor, thanks to a small-but-mighty volunteer army led by Lisa McMahon; and serious runway glitz and glamor attire, thanks to all in attendance! (seriously, those shoes tho!).

Mayor Sullivan’s message of Building a Bridge to Success was the theme of his brief but heartfelt address and it was echoed visually, through imagery and thought-provoking quotes placed around the venue. What was most apparent in the room was that Mayor Sullivan is greatly admired and a highly respected leader.  We’re guessing that it’s not often that a State Representative and a Senator from both sides of the aisle are seen together celebrating the inauguration of their city’s mayor after they have both devoted that same afternoon jumping into icy cold water to aid in raising funds for the city’s Children’s Museum. What an amazing gesture of support for the mayor and for the City of Westfield. Thank you for all you do for Westfield Senator Humason and Representative Velis!

On a personal note, we’d like to thank Eric Moller for recommending us to capture the inauguration ball festivities. We were truly honored to have been considered and chosen to document this important event. We sincerely appreciate your support of our business.  Thank you also to Donna Shibley who pinch hit for us on a moments notice AND for thinking to ask if I was wearing a particular wrap that we both own. I was. She changed her wrap. She’s a true friend.

Until next time…Enjoy the photo’s!

We have lived in the same neighborhood for over 30 years with many of the same great families, and in our ever-busy live’s we have come to measure the passing of time by the speed at which the children in the neighborhood suddenly become young adults. This is the case with Jared. In his early teens, he used to mow the lawn for us. How on earth could he now be a senior in the Class of 2018? We are really looking forward to capturing his senior portraits in a couple of weeks (in a special location!). The evening of his senior prom, he brought his beautiful date, Maddy to the studio with both of their families and amid the chaos and catching up with the neighborhood gossip, we were able to capture some memorable images of the elegant couple. We left them with strict instructions to dance the night away! We’re pretty sure they took our advice!

Jenny looked absolutely stunning for her senior prom! Is that not the PERFECT color dress with her gorgeous red hair? We were so thrilled that she ‘weathered the storm’ and made her way to our studio to allow us to capture some images for her so that she will remember this prom forever. We also had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Jenny last fall when we shot her senior session. She rocked out all three of her outfits that day too! It’s been a pleasure to see her radiant smile in front of our lens these last few months. And we get to see her entire family soon when they come for their family portrait session! (Did we mention that had the privilege of capturing Jenny’s brother Jeff’s senior photo’s two years ago?). We’re so very happy we met this beautiful family!

Congratulations to Jenny and the rest of the Westfield High School Class of 2017 on their graduation last night. We look forward to seeing you all make your positive mark on the world!

“Surround yourself with people who take their work seriously, but not themselves, those who work hard and play hard.” – Colin Powell

We are thrilled to announce the addition of Lauren Matteo Niedbala, our new studio manager, to the Andrea York Photography team!

Truth be told, Lauren isn’t exactly new to the team. We had the good fortune to have her baby whispering with our team at Yankee Candle during the 2015 holiday season. She also produced beautiful images on the weddings she second shot with us.  Lauren is a very talented photographer and an alumni of the prestigious Hallmark Institute of Photography!

In the short time that Lauren has been managing our studio, she has been instrumental in organizing some of our more complex workflows, editing a number of portrait sessions and improving our client response time. If you’ve been around me for more than 5 minutes, you’ve heard me say: “I just want to shoot!”. (I seriously need that on a tee shirt -with a Nikon camera of course!). Lauren, in addition to Ariel Grondin, our part time assistant extraordinaire (and Yankee Candle Holiday Project Manager) are allowing us to focus on what we love to do most – taking pretty pictures of amazing people.

Please join Donald and I in welcoming Lauren on board!! And if you’re shopping at Pilgrim Candle – feel free to stop in to the gallery to say hello to her!
