Welcome 2018 and Happy New Years from the La Shot Photography Family
Here is a quick review of 2017!!
** This is my 33 year and it was successful again.
**Spring started out slow but in June I bought out my New Slate Gray Shutters Series from Charleston, SC.
I feature them as gallery wraps and they look amazing in the white washed frame. They did amazing this year and I will be adding to that collection.
**In May I photographed the lilacs that were in full bloom in Rochester, New York.
I bring this lilac collection out in honor of my Mom, Thelma Maynard. She
unexpectedly passed away in the spring of 1993 while the lilacs were in bloom and also they were her favorite flower.
For a couple of years I could not acknowledge Mother’s Day because I was so devastated and would not photograph lilacs. It has been 24 years and it is about time I honor her memory and what an amazing mother she was. Miss you everyday my sweet MOM!
**We had a beautiful summer in Western New York where I do most of my outdoor art shows.
Lower temperatures and very little rain put the public in the buying mood and I had some of my best shows in years.
**My wife had weight loss surgery in June and has lost almost 80 pounds. It has been an amazing transformation and am so proud of her.
**My son proposed to Sara in August and a wedding is coming in the fall of 2018.
We are so excited and I am sure “Disco Dave” will be there!
**The Canvas Gallery Wraps are a huge part of my booth
display and are selling wonderful.
The canvas is stretched taut and wrapped completely around to the back of the frame. I use quality 1.25” deep stretcher frames and the sides are mirror images of the picture giving a wonderful 3D effect. All my images are available as Gallery Wraps and they look beautiful.
Look for all my new images on the “New Shots Page” on the web site and at the art shows
The best part of doing the art
shows is meeting all the wonderful people along the way. I have the best customers, a wonderful show family and my amazing family at home. I I am so lucky!!
My baby girl, Kelsie, is now 27 years old. She is going thru a lot of changes with a new job and has a great future ahead of her.
son, Jaryd, keeps on moving up at his job and will make more money than me this year, so proud of him. He is engaged adn will be married in the fall of 2018!
Our Little Miss Molly, our wonderful puff ball
Shit Tzu, has been with us 6 years now. We rescued her but she truly rescued us, especially me. We love her so much and she keeps me calm & happy.
My Show Schedule is up so let’s get together and share some good times and talk about the old.

Thank you for all those memories and I can not wait to create new ones with you this year.
