Chadasha Website Homepage Design
Chadasha Website Homepage Design

Here’s a sneak preview of the new Chadasha website homepage design.

If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you’ve probably heard me mention the Chadasha Foundation and all the amazing things they are doing in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

There is quite a lot going on at Chadasha lately, between preparing to open our Jimani Hospital, to the same with our Orphanage Retreat Center, some illnesses, mission trips, cancelled meetings with Haiti’s President Martelly, and many more moving parts.

The busy schedule hasn’t been limited to the projects and operations on Hispaniola, either. I’ve been working heavily on designing and developing a new website for Chadasha among some other Chadasha projects as well. The current site is a bit vanilla and really doesn’t serve our needs as a growing international non-profit anymore. It can’t support a lot of necessary functionality and it looks pretty simple too.

So, I’ve been spearheading a brand new site, designed and planned from the ground up to serve our needs and add some fantastic new features for the entire Chadasha Community. The new site is going to be Read more

Moser Visuals Digital Mag Holiday

Moser Visuals Digital Mag Holiday

Happy November to all of you lovely people! It’s getting chilly and the time has now fallen back . . . all signs we are getting close to my favorite holidays: Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Some of you may choose to celebrate differently than me, whether you’re in another country and don’t recognize America’s Thanksgiving or of a different set of beliefs and Christmas isn’t on your calendar. Even if we don’t celebrate the same things, odds are you’ll be getting together with family and friends many times in the next two months and taking lots of pictures. As such, I wanted to put together a quick tips guide to getting great photos at your holiday events, because, let’s face it . . . I can’t be at all of your parties! 🙂

Below the great tips are some great ideas for your holiday portraits and how I can help capture them!

Knoxville Ice Bears Charity Classic Golf Tournament

Knoxville Ice Bears Charity Classic Golf TournamentI mentioned the other day about how I met some great people at Knoxville Fashion Week, specifically the gals at Southern Grace.

Another fantastic relationship I was able to establish was with the wonderful folks responsible for making professional hockey happen in Knoxville—the Knoxville Ice Bears!

They contacted me a few weeks back about the Ice Bears Charity Classic Golf Tournament and ended up inviting Knoxville Portraits to document all the events and capture the golfers. Since it was a charity event, I donated Knoxville Portraits’ event services for the tournament, as well as a door prize and silent auction package—and the event was a success! The Ice Bears were able to fund some youth hockey scholarships right here in East Tennessee. You can see the images from the Ice Bears’ charity golf tournament here.

We’ve posted all the images from the golf tournament online! More information about the online gallery is at the end of the post.

  1. More info about the Ice Bears
  2. Info about Knoxville Portraits Events and Social Media
  3. Ordering Info for photos from the Ice Bears’ Charity Classic Golf Tournament

Ashley Korte models a wild design from Jenna Colina.

Editor’s Note: My photography studio, Knoxville Portraits, extensively covered the Knoxville Fashion Week in the Fall of 2012. Knoxville Portraits is available for portraits, events, fashion and other professional photography services. Contact us at 865-229-6673 for more information.

The award for the hottest runway event during the Knoxville Fashion Week Fall 2012 events, in a landslide, goes to Jenna Colina’s Swimwear Showcase!

Jenna’s collection is extremely diverse, fun, and looks fantastic, as you can see in all the photos above.

I ran into Jenna less than an hour before her collection took the stage and she was quite the busy-bee. She handled answering questions, directing models, and making small adjustments to her bikinis (there’s not a lot to adjust either, so she had to be very precise!) with grace and ease.

The talented emerging designer Alicia Marie provided the jewelry you see the models sporting.

Her show started with quite a bang as the talented Amber Borzotra began by Read more

As a fashion-conscious but not fashion-fanatical male, I was impressed with many of the designs displayed at Knoxville Fashion Week. However, it seemed that almost all of the clothing and shows were geared toward the ladies . . . leaving the gentlemen without much of an opportunity to window shop for new styles.

Luckily, Coachman Clothiers spiced up the Friday night show by providing many great-looking pieces for guys (and a few for the ladies too)!

As you can see in the photos above, the fashions Coachman displayed for men has a lot of variety and quality, and there was an added bonus: Read more
