Photography Exhibit at the Bethlehem Rotunda; Tracy Bodeo and other local photographers of the Hillcrest Camera Club exhibit their work this April.

A new photography exhibit featuring the work of the Hillcrest Camera Club ( ) will be opening at the Bethlehem Rotunda (next to the Bethlehem Public Library) starting this Sunday, April 3rd, 2011.  There will be an artists’ reception from 2:00 – 4:00 pm Sunday afternoon, where you can meet some of the photographers and ask questions about their art.  The show will contain a diversity of photographic subjects, ranging from portraiture to nature to the abstract.  The photographs will also be presented in a variety of ways– traditional framed prints, canvas wraps, panoramas….  It is wonderful to be a part of this exhibit as well as be a member of the Hillcrest Camera Club and I encourage anyone who loves photography to join or  visit our group.  I also hope to see you at the artists’ reception for this exhibit this Sunday, April 3rd.  If you can’t make it to the reception, please feel free to view the exhibit anytime during regular Bethlehem Town Hall hours.  The exhibit runs through the end of April.

Boy oh Boy, what a gorgeous baby! Infant and pet photography by Tracy Bodeo; Lehigh Valley family portrait photographer

This little guy was such a joy to work with.  I got some nice, serious images, but baby was also happy to show off his smile, especially when he was looking at mommy!  Of course baby’s beautiful big (furry) sister also took part in the session.


Baby in a Basket; newborns by tracy bodeo photography; Bethlehem baby portraits

Look at this little doll!  I got to spend a few hours with her when she was only 10 days old.  Newborn sessions, like this one, are done on-location in the baby’s home to keep mom and baby as comfy as possible.  All necessary studio equipment is brought in.  In-home sessions also makes it easier for mom to take care of baby when she starts to fuss.

This sweetie pie did a great job posing between naps, eating, being changed and yes, occasionally letting us know that she did not want to stay still in the basket any longer!  (See the third picture below).  Don’t worry, we never let her cry for more than a moment!

A few more images from the fun, snowy session; pet photography by tracy bodeo; Easton, Bethlehem, Allentown pet and family portraits

The fun, outdoor winter pet photography session that took place on that beautiful snowy day also included an indoor component to include the two family cats, who were also great models.  Sammy and Charlie really enjoyed playing with string and then snuggling into their beds.  Husky brother and sister were also happy to cozy up on the couch after romping about in the snow.
