Environment – Recital – Prom – Softball – Digital Tech Company – Real Estate – Wedding
We have been challenged. The last 6 months have been insanely creative. End of school, an insurance claim for a camera that went for a salt water swim, wedding industry scammers, new account sign ups, finally all secure websites and a range of challenging photographic and film shoots to keep anyone’s head in a spin.
It’s open. Fully. We stumbled upon it today, weren’t sure, but are salivating over the magical moments the family will have when we staycation here. And the best part: we will bring the doggies!!!!!
The children and the dogs will so love this refreshing view from the balcony at ‘Calusa’ that overlooks the Mahogany and hardwood hammock to the blue waters of the bay, birds, boats and beach. And the dog tiki’s along the Hammock Pathways.
HAPPY SMILE BRINGS MORE THAN JUST COFFEE
Our cheerful coffee deliverer made the morning particularly splendid.
As soon as we parked the car the ‘new’ design and decor reeled us both in like willing fish. No question about style or trend setting here. Bakers Cay has a stunning new look. I’m not into promotional content. But this place is refreshing. So where to begin?
The ‘PORT COCHERE’
Bakers Cay’s Port Cochere
That ‘ahhhhh yes’ moment when the seating arrangements all lead to this view…and the cappuccino is really really yummy. Delivered with a very genuine smile. We found out 90% of the staff were retained after Irma. Jobs were found within the company elsewhere and accommodation secured for those in need. All this was not publicized. But it illustrates that really good streak in humanity.
And here is the Calusa Restaurant View

DOG GOODY BAG AT CHECK-IN
Dog daze at the beach. When you check in your four legged friends get their own doggy bag. And the wee tiny Tiki dog huts are sprinkled around the place where a dog may stretch out in the shade!

Bar we’ve haven’t been to yet – Dry Rocks
All these empty beach chairs – anticipating the rush!
Vermont ski and snow at Christmas from a Sony Alpha 7 rii, a GoPro Hero7 Black, and a fabulous Karma Drone. Warning! Bring puzzles and playing cards because TMobile is woefully inadequate here. NO Service. All the way down the mountain to Boston.
WIFI at the base lodges at Jackson Gore and Sitting Bull at Okemo Mountain Resort. We love the family without the smart phones. But! The rare moments of wifi were our saving graces. We all work online in some form or another. And we lost each other several times on the mountain skiing without phone service. Luckily there is an endless supply of food and drink available any base lodge you get to, with the EPIC PASS you can load on to the family credit card. Be warned. The kids will use this service.

We used the Sony G OSS 70-200 mm lens at F2.8 for this one. Worth the extra money for that lens to get that uber sharp front part of the shot and the slightly out of focus rear. Lovely and clean. We bought the lens for the show. It’s not the best investment. We haven’t paid it back yet! How to be disciplined with buying equipment is something we are only JUST NOW learning. I need a Shark Tank shredding! Lucky for us our credit score is FANTASTIC. So plenty of lenders….zero percent! DISCIPLINE needs to be applied there too. Our business is in its 2nd year. We have done well considering where we began.
Tough crowd! Not! The USAF Thunderbird’s were super on point with cooperative poses. They were ready for the ‘bro’ pose and the straight line up too. This one was taken with the G 18-105mm lens with Sony Flash. No tripod! I was asked last minute. So no time for lighting. Lenses. Tripods. But it gets the point across!
I’m not a realtor but I make fantastic film and photo and social media distribution for realtors and I love love love it. It’s my favorite work, play, fun. All in one. Let me know if you want professionally finished photo and film for your real estate listing.
