Of all of the great technology we  can't live without (our cameras/computers) there's one thing we've never lived with....a smart phone.  We have overcome many temptations to upgrade, but for the most part our dumb phones do just fine.  That being said, we only SHARE our mobil photos with a bank of family and friends so here is our way of sharing ThunderCLAP's unseen, on-the-go, taken, sent, and received year 2011 cell phone photos:

 Looking forward to 2012!  --ThunderCLAP! Photography

Christmas Mini Sessions 2011

We did our first Mini-Session!  It went flawlessly and everyone seemed to have a good time.  All of the participants had kids so we set up 5 different stations with plenty of opportunities for some great shots.  We wanted to provide an experience that could never happen by going to a stuffy studio...who needs backdrops when you you have a beautiful backyard to work with (Thanks Uncle Mike and Aunt Laura).  Here are some of our favorite shots from each of the families:


Thanks to everyone who participated in our first Mini-Session, ya'll made it the success that it was!  We hope all of your holiday cards and gifts came out exactly how you wish they would.  We are looking forward to doing more in the future...possibly Spring, we'll keep everyone informed as space will be limited!  --Mark

An entire limb of the family tree...

 We've worked with Matt and Krisha many times before, but on this occasion the offered up a new challenge...five generations!  We jumped at the opportunity to help them document such a lineage.

 If anyone leaves a ThunderCLAP! session unhappy....

 ...then we've not done our job!  We know sometimes it may feel awkward being the center of attention, and looking good while doing it, but we do our best to break your mold and find your character!

 What a good looking bunch!

 Daughter, Daughter and Daughter.  Mom, Mom and Mom. Grandmother, Grandmother and Grandmother.  Great-Great-Grandmother and Great-Grandmother!

 The Driscolls know how to work it by now!

 And we look forward to photographing the Emesticas in the future!

 It's easy to create memories when you are open to them :)


Thanks everyone for an absolutely awesome session filled with laughs, love and plenty of smiles.  Looking forward to working with all of you very soon!  --Mark
