Tracy Bodeo Photography has relocated to Greenville, SC!

After 14 wonderful years in the beautiful Lehigh Valley of PA, my children and I decided that it was time for a new adventure in life– and so we relocated to the equally beautiful town of Greenville, SC. I have been quite busy settling in, working and exploring the Greenville area. But soon enough summer will arrive making time for additional portrait photography! I look forward to getting to know more families and pets of the Upstate.

If you are interested in an on-location (at a local park or in your home or yard) pet or family portrait session, feel free to get in touch via phone or email. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have or set up a session. I am available weekends and afternoon/evenings during the week. In the meantime you can get to know me a little better by checking out my main tracy bodeo photography website and can see some of my work by clicking here: tbp Galleries.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

Digital Image Portrait Packages are now available at tracy bodeo photography; pet portraiture and nature photography in the Lehigh Valley, Easton, Bethlehem, Allentown.

New in 2015– Digital Image Packages…. After many requests, I have finally decided to add digital image packages to a client’s session choices.  Although I will still provide the highest quality printing services, I will now give clients the option of packaging their session with a set of High Resolution digital image files to print themselves.

Clients can choose a digital image portrait session package, or purchase an ‘a la carte session and add on prints, digital files or a combination of the two depending on how clients would like to use their images.  Clients will still continue to receive LowRes digital image copies of purchased prints, so they can share them online.  Purchased HighRes files will also include a complimentary LowRes copy for computer use.

Digital files start at $55.00 each and digital packages start at $295.00  To see a complete list of sessions, packages, wall art and print prices, visit my SESSIONS & PRODUCTS pages on my main website or see the digital packages by clicking here.

Bethlehem, PA’s Team Identity on Disney’s “Make Your Mark!”; Results show 8 pm tonight!; portrait photography by Tracy Bodeo

Last month I was contacted by one of Disney’s advertising agencies to set up a portrait session with Team Identity, a Bethlehem, PA dance crew who was auditioning for Disney Channel’s “Make Your Mark!”  Kids from across the country submit videos of themselves dancing, with the hopes of making it as one of the top 6 finalists.  The top 6 are invited out to California to compete live on the show.  Team Identity consists of three amazing, self-taught, hip-hop, teen dancers from right here is the Lehigh Valley.  In September, after submitting several audition videos, Team Identity‘s Xavier, Jay & Faustino were notified that would be heading out to CA as one of the 6 finalists! The formal announcement was made in Bethlehem’s Liberty High School!

This past Friday night, October 19th, 2012, Team Identity, along with 5 other dance groups, competed on “Make Your Mark!” by performing two different dances.  The first dance was the dancer’s own original choice.  The second dance was based on a theme and the dancers were aided by (So You Think You Can Dance’s) choreographer Chris Scott.  All 6 dance groups did a nice job with both dances, but I definitely thought Team Identity was the best!

At the end of the show, after the three judges conferred, it was revealed that Team Identity was one of the three groups chosen to come back to the results show tonight, Sunday, October 21st!  They looked so happy and excited when the announcement was made!  The voting could then begin.  Each of the 3 groups was assigned a phone number and you could call, text or vote online for at least two hours after the show.  The three remaining finalists will come back to the results show tonight and the big winner will be revealed!  Go Team Identity!  My family voted as much as possible and I really hope they got the votes they deserve from everyone else to win.

Team Identity was the only group of the six that has not received formal dance training.  Their self-developed talent and love of dance brought the crew together and made them the awesome group they are.  They are hard workers who dance in the hallways of school or in random outdoor spaces, instead of in a studio with dance instructors and choreographers. This makes me hope they win this thing even more!

I also want to add that not only are Jay, Faustino and Xavier of Team Identity incredible dancers, but they are really nice guys.  It was a pleasure to work with them during our portrait session and so exciting to hear the news that they were finalists on the show!  Here are a few of the images from our session:

Happy New Year from tracy bodeo photography! Bethlehem, Easton, Allentown pet and children’s portraits.

Wishing my family, friends and clients all the best in the coming year!

During the next week or two I will be updating my blog and website with new products and information, as well as many new client images taken over the last few months.  Please keep checking back to see what’s been going on and what’s new at tracy bodeo photography!

“Gracie” appears in the HeARTsSpeak article in the latest issue of the Bark Magazine; pet portraits by tracy bodeo photography benefiting rescue animals.

Have you checked out the current issue (Sept./Oct.) of the Bark Magazine (sold at B&N bookstores, etc.)?  One of the images I had taken for a client of their beautiful dog Gracie (rescued from Safe Haven), appears in an article about HeARTsSpeak, a group of which I am a member.  HeArtsSpeak is a non-profit organization whose vision is to “unite the individual efforts of animal artists & animal rescues into collective action for social change” with one goal being to stop unnecessary killing of adoptable animals.  The article talks about the origin of the group, the artists who donate their time to photograph shelter animals, and the power of a good photograph in helping to get these animals adopted.  To see the complete article click here:  BarkSept2011 or go to the online version of the article “Putting the Art in Heart”, here: http://thebark.com/content/putting-art-heart .

Gracie is shown in the article below with the blue-ish background.  My favorite part about this image is the thoughtful look on Gracie’s face.  After getting pictures of the whole family with Gracie, I wanted to get a picture of her alone.  She was very nervous as I put her in the center of the studio.  She sat still because she is such a sweet dog, but she looked over at her mom as if to ask “why?”  I got one of two shots of her and we were finished.  She couldn’t wait to be back by her mom’s side.

Update: The Crafting for Paws Fundraiser has been postponed until September 25th, 2011
