Phoenix…. we’re here! |Phoenix – Scottsdale Family and Children Photographer|

Posted on July 29th, 2009 in Uncategorized) by admin | 0 Comments »

I’m thrilled to announce our arrival into the Phoenix and Scottsdale area.  After 8 long days in two cars (with four kids, and two dogs!) we are HERE!  I’m currently taking bookings for the PHX area and am continuing to book for my October sessions in Cincinnati.  If you’re interested in booking either here (Phoenix) or there (Cincinnati) please contact my office asap at 513.336.0290.

Thought I would share a few images from our trip – highlights included a night in St. Louis where we spent some time catching up with old friends, then into OKC where we toured the Murra building memorial site. It was beautifully done, very powerful and moving.  Then we went to Albuquerque where we climbed Sandia Peak, and then into Sedona which is the most beautiful city on earth, I’m sure of it. :-)

Priceless Spotlight: Barry Kaplan, Real Estate Agent [Cincinnati | Local Favorites]

Posted on July 20th, 2009 in Local Favorites) by admin | 0 Comments »

Tagged Under : , , , , ,

You met Barry in the “Jam-Packed July” edition of the newsletter and I wanted to share more about Barry here on the blog. He was such a huge help in selling our Cincinnati home – wish we could move him to Arizona with us but I’ll leave him for my Cincinnati friends and get to visit him when I’m back in town.

Barry says:

I am a lifelong Cincinnati resident, born and raised in Amberley Village. I attended Cincinnati Country Day School and Washington University in St. Louis where I received my MBA. My wonderful wife Ann and I reside in the Village of Montgomery with our son Gil who is a student in the Sycamore School District.

My real estate career began in 1987 with one goal: To be acknowledged by my clients as the real estate agent who creates TRUST by delivering services with the highest degree of QUALITY, VALUE and INTEGRITY.

My achievements include:
Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors: Circle of Excellence Million Dollar Club
Ohio Association of Realtors: Presidents’ Sales Club

To learn more about me, please visit AboutBarry.com
***************************************************************************

Working with Barry has been FABULOUS! With a husband who travels frequently, four small kids, and a thriving business, selling a home could be a nightmare and Barry worked so hard to make it as easy on us as possible. Fast results, great communication, helpful every step of the way, and just flat out awesome is how I’d have to describe Barry’s work. I was truly comfortable with trusting him to sell our home and that says a lot.

He made lots of suggestions on making our home selling-ready, looking at it as a buyer would see it. Barry listens and you know how important that is. I mean he really LISTENED to our concerns. He’s also very straight-forward and doesn’t snowball you with salesman fancytalk. That no-BS attitude is pure ME and something I appreciate! Give it to me straight, you know?

Thanks, Barry!
You can reach Barry at 513.368.9000 or BarryKaplan@remax.net.

Once again celebrating our move to a place where they put the H in HEAT (but remember, it’s a DRY heat… like that’s going to matter when it’s 200 degrees in the shade ::snort::), here are some cool and breezy outfits for the family from Old Navy. You’ll look cool even in the DRY heat of Phoenix or the HUMID heat of Cincinnati summers.

Don’t you feel all cool and breezy after looking at these outfits? I sure do!

This fabulous location near Cincinnati was perfect for the vintage look we wanted for today’s sexy couples session with Dana & Jermaine. I mean, c’mon, you just don’t get better than beautiful subjects in a soda shop bus in eye-popping colors on the inside, classic soft colors outside.

You’re going to need a fan and a glass of ice cold lemonade before you look at this one. WOW.

Every couple deserves to have a session celebrating their relationship – fun, flirty, sexy, serious, or all of the above. Aren’t you worth it?

Reese has been coming to Priceless Reflections by Melissa since she was a wee thing (2-3 months old) and now she’s a big girl, all giggly and full of smiles with the sunniest personality even on a hot hot hot day like today.

Mom and Dad are so awesomely sweet and cool, totally head-over-heels in love with Reese. She grins and they just melt. Nope, this little cutie pie isn’t spoiled at all, no way!

A shady spot at the park turned into a storybook-worthy moment. She looks like a little princess with the columns of the castle around her, the sweet expression, her little smile, and the adorable dress Mom chose.

And finally, how could this not make you smile?

We shot Deanna’s session in Middletown and Mason, and including this sunflower field in absolutely perfect light.

As the countdown to our Phoenix move goes into hyperdrive, I thought it would be fun to showcase this desert-inspired line from Gymboree and desert colors from Janie & Jack. Of course they would look great in Cincinnati too, LOL!
