Local Business Spotlight: Simply Taken Photography

AroundPhoenixville.com would like to introduce you all to Simply Taken Photography, a new Photography business that specializes in children's portraits.

Owner Laura DeCarlo describes her new venture:
---
“Simply Taken Photography”…the name pretty much says it all. I specialize in capturing the beauty and simplicity that is childhood, through film. This time is so precious and so very fleeting, but through photography we can preserve and cherish the wonder and amazement as seen through a child’s eyes and in their thoughts and expressions, for a lifetime. I pride myself in my ability to do just that through my timeless portraits.

I am a graduate of Antonnelli Art Institute with an Associates degree in Photography. Since graduating I have been a free lance photographer and studio manager. I also specialize in custom framing, hand made albums and personalized greeting cards.

Early on in my career I would sit and talk to young couples in search of a wedding photographer and time and time again I would hear them say that they didn’t want to spend too much on their wedding pictures. My response to that would always be, and still is, “there are two keepsakes that you take with you when the day is done and over, one is the ring and the other are the pictures…as time goes by and memory fades those pictures are forever.” This same sentiment holds true for childhood, these are moments and memories that can never be gotten back…but through the art and beauty of photography they can be cherished for a lifetime.

When a child is in an environment in which they are familiar it shows in the portraits, which is why my studio is nature and life is my back drop. Each pose comes from the wonder that is a child in their natural setting. My business location is simply my gallery, a place for clients to come, view my art, sit and discuss their own personal portrait session and how to best reveal the essence of their child.

I have truly been blessed and am thrilled to have this opportunity to start my own business in the Phoenixville area. The town is quite charming and I am so looking forward to the start of my new venture and a bright and prosperous future here as part of the up and coming Phoenixville.

I love what I do it is my true passion... my heart!

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
