Don’t miss Theodore Roosevelt’s resplendent return to Maplewood on Sunday, October 20, at 2:00 p.m. at Jefferson School sponsored by the Durand-Hedden House. Teddy once roamed the hills and meadows of our town as a boy exploring nature while visiting his Uncle Cornelius’s estate, now the Roosevelt Park section. Expertly played by historic interpreter Joe Wiegand, Theodore Roosevelt will come back to reconnect with Maplewood and vividly share stories of his life, family, and presidency.

Carl Ellis Photography and Photo Booth Studios are offering a Family Photo special for LGBTQ families throughout June! Make an appointment and come prepared. I'll pose you and photograph you for about 15 minutes. I call this my supermini session. Afterward, I'll send you a link of about 8-10 images to choose your best. No worries if we didn't notice the crumbs in your beard or the chocolate stain on your daughters dress. I'll retouch it out! As well as any other faux pas. We keep this session simple. A plain white wall in my studio works best, but we can also step outside for some color. You'll receive the session and a 5x7 print for $30. If that's not enough for you, choose a larger package and enjoy a 25% discount! I'm holding June 22nd as Family Day. Walk-ins are welcome! For all other dates, please book your appointment right from my website. Happy Pride from my family to yours!
