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!

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:

Meet the adorable Holly..; cat photography; Lehigh Valley, Easton, Allentown, Bethlehem pet portraits by photographer Tracy Bodeo

Here are two quick pictures of Holly, an adorable and mischievous kitten I had the pleasure of photographing.  She was much more interested in running around and hiding under the couch than she was in getting her pictures taken!  She did eventually settle down enough to get some “relaxing” shots.

Holly was found in the woods as a stray but quickly became very friendly and loving to her new family.  She shares a home with her parents and three big brothers (one human, one canine, one feline).
