WISE: Owera Fundraiser recap

Sponsored by KeyBank, WISE Women’s Business Center, a resource for local women entrepreneurs, held its first fundraising event on Wednesday, May 16th at Owera Vineyards in Cazenovia, NY.  Funds from this event will benefit many of the programs WISE Women’s Business Center offers which includes, business training and counseling. 

Guests were greeted by the warming Joanne Lenweaver, WISE, WBC Director,  the beautifully and brightly dressed Alexandra Waterbury, WISE WBC Administrative Specialist, and Pragya Murphy, Chair of the Development Committee for WISE WBC.

Of course, since it was a wine tasting fundraising event, deliciously and refreshing looking wine awaited all of the lovely guests and their friends.

 

I really enjoyed photographing this event, not only because it was invigorating and motivational, but because I got to meet and reconnect with great women leaders as well as say hello some old friends.
Besides the great networking mentioned above, the live testimonials from clients had the crowd and myself excited and inspired – notice the excitement on the bartender’s face in the background as Tina Jacobs owner of Devine Gardens, in Morrisville, NY showed samples of the packaging before counseling with WISE  and after.   Debbe Titus, owner of Half Moon Bakery, in Jamesville, NY also shared how the center’s services had and still has a tremendous impact on the success of her business.  
Overall, this event was not only great to photograph but very informative as I not only left excited about the awesome pictures I captured, but more educated about what WISE Women Business Center does for women in this community.  Below some  facts/statistic about the center’s impact in our CNY women’s lives and the community at large. 
– Since its inception, twelve years ago, WISE Women’s Business Center has trained over 10,000 and counseled over 2,200 women in our community, which has contributed over $155 million in gross revenues.
– WISE Women’s Business Center has helped start close to two-hundred new businesses and assisted a little over one thousand existing businesses.
Organizations such as KeyBank actively support the center and this year alone, has invested over thirty-thousand dollars which allows WISE Women’s Business Center to  enrich their current services and continue offering networking events such as this one.

Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation: 19th Basket Ball recap

The Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation Basket Ball, also known as #theboeheimball or the Gala, was held on Saturday, April 28th at the Turning Stone.  This was the Foundation’s 19th year holding the Ball.  With seven hundred guests and half a million dollars raised, there is no doubt their vision to help the community and its children has stayed as clear as it was when the organization first started.   The Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation, supports not only cancer research and advocacy, but at risk children in our community. The Basket Ball, is their main fundraising event, which over the last nineteen years, has raised seven million, it all stays here in our CNY community.  Allow me to “show you” a recap of the night….

The VIP reception, there is something about having three open bars, stocked with top shelf liquor at a very intimate reception.  Guests are greeted by Jim and Juli at the Orange Carpet, where they get the opportunity to have their pictures taken with them.  Guests get to take their picture home, the same night; not too shabby.  As if three open bars and pictures with Jim and Juli wasn’t enough, VIP guests also have the opportunity, to use those expensive phones, to take selfies with their favorite player and even chat with them; It is a very relaxing atmosphere.  The General reception, immediately follows the VIP reception and Jim and Juli are ready to meet their guests at the General reception right at 6p (this is very impressive – It is a hike, and there are not airport cars there, just saying! ) Props to the event coordinators! Ok back to the recap.

The General reception is very active, at this reception is where everyone one meets, where reporters are seen interviewing the coach, guests get the option of having their picture taken with the entire Syracuse Men’s Basketball team, they get to mingle with old friends, make new friends, check out Silent Auction items, enjoy drinks (two bars at the general reception) and hor’dorves, as well as taking selfies with Jim and Juli at the greeting area.  Can you believe that even with all of this going on, I can still find you to take your picture!? I am good, just saying! 🙂

Let’s move onto the program! LIVE Auction

As it is tradition, to fans delight, the Syracuse Men’s Basketball team shared the stage with Jim and Juli.   It was, at least to me, super cute to see the player’s shy faces as Jim, highlighted each one of them and their accomplishments this 2018 season.  A part of the night which deserves a great and heart-felt mention is the honoring of former Administrative Assistant, Kelly Seubert.   Jim and Juli shared how they will keep Kelly’s memory alive: Not only was she honored with a patch on all game uniforms, for the season, the coaching staff wearing a commemorative pin designed to look like the patch, but also donations which were made to the foundation instead of flowers (Kelly’s wish) were used to build medical supplies cabinets. 

Kelly’s husband and sons.

These cabinets, which were custom built and display the letter “K”, will be stationed at hospitals and will include various supplies to make hospital’s patients stay, a bit more comfortable. Donations were also made at the live auction to keep these cabinets stocked and distributed to local hospitals.

This year’s emcee’s were Associate Head Coach, Adrian Autry and Assistant Coach, Gerry McNamara.  Live auction items included, Dinner with the Legends of SU Basketball, 2018 NBA Finals Game w/Private Charter, which auctioned off for forty-thousand dollars, and my personal favorite, a Turks & Caicos Vacation (visit link to see all live auction items: https://basketball18.auction-bid.org/microsite/items).

How cute is this!?

Adorable

Jim & Juli lighting it up with their guests

The night continued to my favorite part, dinner and dancing! It is so energizing to see couples of all ages boogie down! Prime Time Horns, owns it every year! Even Jim and Juli can’t resit the sound of those horns!   It is a great, great time. AND………. that open bar stays active until the end of the night! Just saying…

Although I have been photographing the Basket Ball for five years now, I am always surprised at how smoothly this event runs.  All transitions are seamless, from the VIP reception to dinner and dancing, to bids collection and distribution.  Shout out to Kelly Taylor, former Foundation Administrator and Rachelle Luckette, Foundation Administrator, and of course, to the volunteers for all they do to make this event run so smoothly.  It is great working with all of you!  

Last but not least, Shout out to the Turning Stone Staff! It is sooo great working with them; anytime I have a question, there is always someone around to happily answer it. Love working with them as well. 

Thank you so much for reading! Until next time!…, oh wait, wait… click —> For more pictures of the Gala and/or to watch a video recap by the #BoeheimBall entertainment team (Jackie Terribile, The Small Town Stylist, Nikki Poles, J Allen Inspired and myself, ana gil-taylor)

ana gil-taylor : Summit Federal Credit Union Taft Rd. Grand Opening recap

One of the perks of being an event Photographer, besides meeting new people, is learning about behind the scenes projects and happenings in our community.  I had the opportunity of photographing The Summit Federal Credit Union’s Taft Road Branch Grand Opening;  They not only celebrated having a new and improved branch, but they also celebrated the community and two great organizations.  The Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation got presented with a check for $6’700 and Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund of CNY got presented with a check for $10’800.

ana gil-taylor event photographer: Mr. Habitat 2016 Recap

ana gil-taylor_Mr.habitat 2016-6780Syracuse Habitat for Humanity‘s main fundraising event to benefit Women Build, held yesterday at Drumlins Country Club, was one of their best yet.  Switching the venue was a great move from BizEventz Director, Joyl Clance. It felt a bit more intimate and there was plenty of free parking- more money for raffle tickets, ha!. LIsa Chelenza was the Emcee for the night; the woman is super funny! And of course sound and visuals by my boy Chris Tracy from Visual Technologies from on point. ana gil-taylor_Mr.habitat 2016-6247ana gil-taylor_Mr.habitat 2016-6342

The reception hosted a variety of appetizers and a cash bar with live music by the talented Michael Kelly of Slow Train . ana gil- taylor_Mr.habitat 2016-6300 The Silent Auction Items included a variety of beautiful art pieces, MacKenzie-Childs goodies, and Syracuse’s Crunch packages, among others. There were also two pretty happy buckets for raffle going around full of fun..and I spotted, Life of Reilley, LOR in that bucket of happiness – Below is also a picture of Mr. Habitat 2015, Scott Farnett, doing his thing selling raffle tickets for those baskets.

Now on to the live auction. The live Auction opened up with Lisa Chelenza introducing Suzanne Williams, Executive Director, for Syracuse Habitat. Suzanne shared a great back story of how and why Mr. Habitat got started; funny, ask her if you get the pleasure of meeting her. Here she is with Mr. Habitat 2015, Scott Farnett,

As always, Lisa kept things moving and real on stage. The contestants were all great, but since I love to dance,  my favorites were Roberto Perez from La Familia de la Salsa, whose hips moves had the ladies screaming for Salsa lessons – It is no surprise his  auctioned package went for higher than its value.ana gil-taylor_Mr.habitat 2016-6453                                                                             My girl Melissa Vassenelli from Dancing with Our Stars and Redhouse’s Stephford Brunson’s, also from Dancing with Our Stars, danced a pretty great “Cha, Cha” so much fun! ana gil-taylor_Mr.habitat 2016-6574                                                                                                                                      Some of the other live auction items included: On-Air time  and a tour at TK99, Golf lessons with  Mark DeAngelis, Jr. from Mark Antony Homes (pretty handsome fellow),  Shawn Reidy from Anheuser-Busch had a package which included Yankee Tickets and a tour of their plant.  last but not least, 2016 Mr. HabitatAaron Santangelo, from Northland Communications who auctioned off  a great package, but all I remember  and I am sure must of the ladies, was his tech services  and handy work around the house. There was a bit of a bid war going on with the ladies, for his package; a Technician and a handyman? It sounds like a Lifetime movie doesn’t it.. ha!

ana gil-taylor Photography: Jim and Juli Boeheim Gala recap

Oh what a night, late April, back in 2016, what a very special time for the Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation, as I remember, what a night! Ok ok, that was inspired by the Four Seasons Band, but it is so fitting here!  This was the 17th year gala for The Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation and it was a hit! Held at The Turning Stone Hotel and Casino, on April 30th 2016 and hosted over 800 guests.

The Gala raised over half a million dollars for our community – This is Syracuse, NY, ladies and gentlemen!  The Gala is one of The Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation main fundraising events and all proceeds funds their grant program which supports many local organizations.  Among these are: The Boys and Girls Club and Clear Path for Veterans.

There was an added bonus for Jim and Juli this year, which made their night even more special.  This was the first time in seventeen years that their kids attended the Gala. One could definitely see the excitement on both of their faces throughout the night, but especially on the dance floor!  Here is how the night went.

The night started with the VIP reception.  The reception included pictures with Jim and Juli at “The Orange Carpet” and the opportunity for VIP guests to snap a picture with their favorite Basketball player.  Gourmet hors d’oeuvres circled the room and three bars decorated each corner of the room. They definitely needed those three bars this year; that VIP room was packed! I wonder if that had anything to do with the great season the Syracuse Men’s Basketball team had?  Or perhaps it was to take pictures with Juli? She looked STUNNING on that red dress. ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-0152ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-5183

ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-5187ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-0159A general reception followed the VIP reception. All guests meet and greet Jim and Juli as well as browse through an assortment of well balanced silent auction items. This included these Yankee stadium seats from the old stadium, Trevor Cooney’s sneakers, headshot packages (from your truly), high end bow-ties from J Allen Inspired to a custom stylist consultation from The Small Town Stylist, a one of a kind ring handcrafted from the #44 key to the historic Hotel Syracuse by JoJo Rings. Of course, a great variety of sports memorabilia for all those sports fans such as, a Final four signed poster of both Men’s and Women Basketball teams and a presidential picture of coach Boeheim. As you can see, there is absolutely something there for everyone to bid on, well planned.

ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-0907

ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-0040At the general reception, guests also got an opportunity to have their picture taken with the team, a very popular attraction, I may add.  This year, as predicted, the line was the longest I have ever seen it! But guests patiently waited for their turn to take their picture with their Syracuse Men’s Basketball Final four team – Go SU! ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-0233

Now to my second favorite part of the night, the LIVE Auction! The Live Auction is like a comedy show, I love it!. Jim and Juli’s on stage presence and chemistry is phenomenal! Add American Sportscaster and radio personality, Dan Patrick as an emcee and well, you’ve got yourself a show! ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-5612ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-5682ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-5430

Congratulations to Neil, Helene and Amanda Gold; 2016 Basket Ball MVP’s. ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-5357_MVP

Part of the live auction was really emotional with Pearl’s passing and Griffin’s Guardian’s story. but the fact that guests were given an opportunity to make a difference by donating to help others, definitely lightened it up.  Donations from $500 to $5000 made an accumulative grand total of forty-thousand dollars raised for Griffin’s Guardians; simply amazing!ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-5597Brian Hanlon, sculptor of the Plaza 44 statues and Syracuse University Football coach Dino Babers, joined the stage to auction off four replicas of those statues. Pretty cool stuff!ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-0634  This years entertainer was Robert Channing, America’s got talent speed painter. He wowed the crowd with three speed paintings:  Syracuse Basketball Team, “Super 7” which was signed by all 7 players, Jim Boeheim, and a painting of Pearl, which Jim purchased to have on display at the Melo Center. The other two paintings were auctioned off and raised seventeen thousand dollars for the Foundation.ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-0671

Now on to the Dance floor! My absolute favorite part of the night! I tell you, it gets harder and harder every year not to break my dance moves on that floor! Although the dance floor was packed, room was made for Jim and Juli to break it down and get jiggy with it! 

ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-5950ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-5955 Prime Time Horns, delivered! Coach Boeheim even gave them a shout out calling them “The best band in Central New York!” Let’s hear those Horns Prime Time! 

Last, but definitely not least, M. Lemp’s Jewelers $20,000 diamond necklace raffle, what a dreamy necklace! Juli got to happily wear it, but wasn’t so happy to take it off.  “What a lady what a night” ana gil taylor_Boeheim Ball_raffle

Speaking of wonderful ladies, a shout out is in order for Kelly Taylor, Foundation Administrator and event planner extraordinaire.  Here is a picture of Juli, Kelly and all of the wonderful volunteers. ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-6128FB ana gil-taylor_ Boeheim_Ball 2016-6135FB

Are business cards in or out?

I believe they are IN one hundred percent. As an event, head shots and family Photographer, there hasn’t been an event or networking meeting I have photographed or attended, where I haven’t been asked for my business card. I enjoy interacting with people and feel that pulling out my phone to add their contact information creates an immediate disconnect. Exchange business cards, at the end of a conversation and later connecting with them on LinkedIn or via email has worked out well for me.

I purchased a super cute business card holder to keep the business cards I receive, nice and organized.  Let’s be honest, those of us who still believe in business cards spend hours if not days, designing  them to make sure it reflects our brand and looks appealing.  Storing them in style is the least I can do to give them the respect they deserve  right?

There are however, those who think business cards are dead – their views here – and there are others, like me, who agree business cards are still very relevant- their views here.  Summarizing, if you  and your audience believe in business cards, it is a no brainer or controversy. Thanks for reading!

Brazzlebox Small Business Summit: ana gil-taylor recap

Brazzlebox, “The applied social network for small and home-based businesses” This is how Glen Zinszer, Brazzlebox founder and CEO describes it.  After having the pleasure of chatting with Glen and his wonderful communications manager Sarynna Cruz, I can confidently say, Brazzlebox is more than an applied social network for small and home- based businesses.  On November 4th, 2015 Brazzlebox put together a local event in Syracuse, NY, which touched more than social media.
The way the Small business summit was laid-out and its content is an indication that Brazzlebox has done its homework and understands small business needs, at all levels.Brazzlebox-0811

The event opened up with a great panel discussion moderated by Sarah Roche, co-founder of Platypus TV,  which touched on a variety of topics such as, the importance of a business plan, Dan Rickman, SBA, believing in yourself and faith, DeBorah Little, Lil’MorStix, being confident and using your entrepreneurial fire to fuel your way to success, Mark Dengler, Research & Marketing Strategist, Inc, be your own cheerleader, Evin Robinson, New York On Tech, be humble and open to learn from others, Mac Cummings, Co-Founder/CEO Terakeet Corporation.

After the panel discussion, there was a nice little break for networking, followed by a fun and energetic presentation by Juli Boeheim of the Brazzlebox_ ana gil taylor-0830Jim & Juli Boeheim Foundation on the importance of community involvement and the personal rewards she has gained from being part of her beautiful Syracuse community. Jim Boeheim, Brazzlebox_ ana gil taylor-0851Head Coach of Syracuse men’s Basketball  and also her husband –  surprised the crowd by coming on stage and joining Juli – agreed by saying something like this –  Donating your time to your community will pay double your dividends, guaranteed, get involved.

Glen came on stage with motivational messages for everyone in the audience;  Brazzlebox_ ana gil taylor-0888I specifically enjoyed and related to the message he delivered to students – it went something like this-  It doesn’t matter what rank you graduate in, what matters is where you want to go and what you do with that desire. Glen had success stories after success stories which certainly defined who he is and what he has achieved and has yet to.

The crowd already hyped up from all real and relate-able success stories, gave Daymond John a resounding cheer as he came on stage. His story is inspirational, reachable, funny, and thought provoking. Of the many messages he had for 1100 attendees, the one that resonated with me were, you can have all the reaches in the world, but will be the poorest man without your family. Family first! The second was, keep swimming, no matter what, keep swimming. Brazzlebox-0929_D_ana gil taylor

An enormous congratulations goes out to Brazzlebox for putting on such fantastic event for small business owners and the general public. Summarizing, below are my awesome take take-a-ways.

1.There is nothing scarier that the thought of losing your family – Family First!

2. Let your desire to success lead you to where you want to go, then do it again.

3. Community involvement leads to a great return on your investment

4. Keep swimming

5. Take crowd selfies.. ha!

Syracuse NY Family Photographer | What to wear and the color wheel

So you scheduled your family or children photo session, now you freak a little.. What am I going to wear!? 

Without a doubt this is one of the first questions asked by my customers once they schedule their photo session.  Answering this question became much easier and more fun once I learned the basics on how to read the color wheel.

I am going to share basic information on how to use the color wheel, from what I have learned. There is definitely more to it than what I am about to explain here. However, this will be enough for you to come up with great color combinations for your photo session and beyond.    Let’s start with some basic information. Then I will share how I use it.

SIMPLIFYING THE COLOR WHEEL

Complementary Colors: Those colors located opposite to each other on a color wheel.

Analogous Colors: Those colors located next to each other on a color wheel.

Monochromatic  Colors that are shade or tint variations of the same color.

Neutrals:  Black, white, grey, browns, etc.

Here is how I use the color wheel applying the basic color rules above.

I will start with monochromatic since I love how the same family of color looks together. My color scheme is yellow.

– Say it is a nice Summer day and I am feeling very happy.

I would wear: Warm yellow shorts, a cool yellow top. Accessories: I would complement with a red belt since it is at 90 degrees from yellow (this extra information is on my what to wear guide – email us to get the full guide). depending on the top I am wearing, I may or may not wear a necklace, if I do, it would be a long necklace with a touch of red, my sandals would probably have some brown and red as well.  I know, I know.. very happy cheery.. but that is my personality, and we have to dress to reflect who we are right?

Say it is a  nice Fall day: I would wear jeans and a burgundy top. Accessories: Directly across from burgundy is green so I would compliment it with a green scarf and brown boots.  I say this is a super cute  and comfy outfit!

Say I am going out to a dressy party: Now I have to think of an outfit for myself and the husband.  – I would wear a red dress, nude stalkings, beige shoes, beige purse (it is a neutral color so we are good) and a gold necklace.

Now my husband: Neutral color – Black suit with either a red shirt and beige tie or a white shirt and a red tie or bow-tie, black shoes.

It is super fun to accessorize and compliment a color once you choose your color scheme.  Try it out!

  1. Choose a color, from the color wheel.
  2. Decide whether you want to go monochromatic, or analogous (more info on our what to wear guide)
  3. Compliment that color.
  4. email us/comment with your combinations; we would love to see/read them!

Remember to get on our email list to receive our full “what to wear guide” with more details and to receive more information on our Fall and Christmas mini sessions!
