Magic Man

I believe that although people say they want to learn the secret of a magic trick, deep down, they really don’t want to know; it’s much more fun to believe the impossible, to marvel at the unbelievable. And the better the magician, the easier it is to suspend belief and stand amazed, with your eyes and mouth wide open, asking, “How did you DO that?” Casey is that kind of magician.
Frank came home from the studio one evening and presented our son, Drew, with a bent and mangled table fork. Before we could question him as to the meaning of the twisted fork, Frank explained. “I photographed this Senior today, Casey, who bent this fork with his mind. It was amazing! He’s a magician at the Magic Juggler Shop in Nob Hill. I’ve never seen anything like it. This guy is incredible!”
We think Casey’s photographs are pretty incredible, too.

(Be sure to check out They are the nicest magicians you’ll ever meet and the shop is full of wonderful tricks for all stages of magic. Make reservations for their Friday night magic show. We took our children and everyone had a great time!)

Apples and Carrots and Corn, oh my!

99.9% of Frank’s photography centers around people. Now and then, though, he’s called upon to photograph that other tenth of a percent, as in the case of the following images created for the cover of New Mexico Business Journal. Those of you familiar with the publication know that most of the Journal’s covers showcase Frank’s images of NM business people, but for the upcoming edition, the publisher wanted something agriculture based. Frank decided the fabulous produce found at the weekend Grower’s Markets was the perfect solution.
I thought the colors were too beautiful not to share.

Get the piecrusts ready!

Look at those colors.

Downtown Attitude

Most people reveal who they are by what they choose to wear for their session. Seniors are no exception. Most choose jeans, t-shirts, and the like. That being said, when we see a high school senior in a dark gray suit and Ray Bans, we pay attention. Matthew, a 2007 Senior from Arizona, is a guy who knows exactly where he’s going in life. His goal is a degree and ensuing career in International Business, and graduating a year early, he’s well on his way.

Of course, if the world of male modeling comes a’knockin, I don’t think he’ll turn them away.

Beginning and Ending

A very wise woman once told me that the purpose of parenthood is to work yourself out of a job. Now that might sound good printed on the side of a coffee mug, but the reality of that statement is much harder, especially when your child has one foot out the door.

This session of a father and his two sons was taken two weeks before his eldest left for Turkey as part of a 9 month international student exchange program. Nine months is a long time to be away and the impending separation was foremost in their minds. Midway through the session, Frank asked them to go on ahead down the road. As they began to walk, dad put his arms around the boys, as he had a thousand times before. As they continued on, laughing and talking, Frank snapped this image.

A road. An unknown future. Two sons on the verge of adulthood. And a very proud father, still protecting, still loving, still guiding.

It’s a powerful image.

We Love What We Do

They say if you love what you do for a living, you’ll never work a day in your life.

We couldn’t agree more.

At Frank Frost Photography, we don’t consider what we do as “work.” Sure, we spend countless hours a week on our art; meeting with clients, photographing sessions, enhancing and printing photographs; we push ourselves and our abilities by furthering our education and staying on the cutting edge of changes in our industry-but it’s never considered “work.” We are thrilled to be able to do what we love everyday: Photographing People. Now, photographing people goes beyond just taking a picture; it’s a relationship we build with our clients. It’s staying in touch with those we photograph, thus, the reason for the blog.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Come on, Cheri, you already have a website. You even have a website dedicated to high school seniors. Isn’t that enough?”
Well, no.

See, although we change our website frequently, we wanted an online method of communicating with our clients in a more personal way: to share stories about the amazing people we photograph; to keep you updated on new products and current events; to share a little bit more than just a website.

We hope you check back often. Our blog is always open.
