Niagara Falls: The Real Frozen

Niagara Falls are magnificent 365 days a year. I’ve never seen them in person before, so when challenged by a ‘live life to its fullest’ friend of mine to pack up my family and meet him there for an overnighter, I...

The 2014 Mini-Sessions are HERE!!

It’s that time of year again – my favorite! Holidays are coming, it’s getting cooler out, and then there’s THIS… For the first time, Kevin High Photography is going to offer mini-sessions! You will have 2 different choices: The Christmas Card Collection ($175), which will include 50 Cards (2 packs of 25) or The Print Collection ($120), which will include your choice of (1)11×16 or (2)8×10 prints. For both collections, you will also receive the digital file of the image you choose.  Add-ons will be available for each collection. For the cards, additional packs of 25 may be purchased at the time of the session for $45 (discounted from the $55 regular price). For both The Card Collection and The Print Collection, you can purchase a flash drive containing all the digital files from your session for $170. That’s 15% off the regular price of $200. (In order to receive the discounted prices for add-ons, they must be paid for prior to the start of your session.) The location will be in the Telford area. Specifics will be determined by me closer to the session date. It’s time to freshen up your family photos. The kids grow up fast, and all your friends and relatives want to see YOU in the photos too! If you’ve never had a Family Session with me, the time has come! It’s relaxing – a TON of fun – full of smiles and laughter. I’ll capture your kids’ individuality for you in photos.

September 12: The New Normal

September 12, 2001 Maybe for you, it’s not the literal date. But do you have your own 9.12.01? Those of you who know me personally know that I do have one. I share it with my wife. Ours is April 24, 2006. I’m talking about the day after. Tragedy strikes. Your life cannot possibly be the same. You wake up the day after, and realize that you’re now forced to face a new ‘normal’. For a lot of Americans, September 12 2001 was quite possibly the most difficult day they would ever have to face. Waking up and realizing the day before was NOT a dream – or even a nightmare. Their loved ones are not going to walk through the door. The neighbor’s little girl will have to grow up without her dad, because he answered the call as a first responder, and was trying to save others when his own life was taken too soon. The new husband – who finally found his soulmate, and the love of his life – now has to figure out how to move forward without her. There are a lot of other 9.12.01’s though. Some of them exist because of what happened on That Day. Countless men and women chose to stand in harms way to defend the freedom we enjoy – I enjoy – every day. Lives have been sacrificed – both on foreign soil, and in our own neighborhoods, and families are left to try to put their pieces back together. And some of these stories have nothing at all to do with terrorist attacks. The dad who is forced...

9.11.01 Remembered

I had the opportunity to spend some time at the National September 11 Memorial with some good friends in Operation Enduring Warrior. This memorial is a place designed to honor and respect the lives lost on the day the world stopped turning. And as I stood there, deep in my own thoughts and memories, I couldn’t help but be struck – hard – as I looked around me. The men and women that I was standing with represented countless who answered the call to defend our freedom. The call that rang out loud and clear on September 11, 2001. I was in the company of men and women who sacrificed. Years of their lives. Limbs. Sometimes many. I met – and have since become good friends with – a first responder who hadn’t faced down the ghost of returning to the site until that night. The ripple effect of the lives that were affected seems to go on still today. So many I would like to thank… I will never...
National Night Out 2013, Franconia Township

National Night Out 2013, Franconia Township

Franconia Township Police Department hosted its annual National Night Out on August 6, 2013, and Kevin High Photography was again invited to help them tell the story of the evening. A time set aside as ‘an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back…’ Needless to say, great times were had by all! The forecast threatened rain, but the sunshine was stronger, and the evening was near-perfect. Fire trucks, a HUGE American flag, inflatables, a visit from the MidAtlantic Medevac helicopter, a slew of sponsors showing their support, and a volunteer crew holding the whole thing together knocked the event out of the park! I would like to take this opportunity to say a great big THANK YOU to all the firemen, policemen, EMTs, and others that were represented, for how your selfless giving makes our communities great places to raise our...
