Syracuse isn't always snowy...

One of the biggest questions I get asked on pretty much a weekly basis is, "Why do you live in Syracuse?" Let's face it - the winters here are kinda of brutal. As someone who is NOT a fan of winters, snow, being cold in general this is a legit question to ask me. Since we are in the middle of winter most of my photos aren't very convincing that Syracuse is a happening place. But please do not misunderstand that it is miserable here...because the 3 other seasons are absolutely worth the winters. syracuse photographer

For those of you who don't live in Syracuse you can see that there is beauty, clear skies and sunny days in our future...just not maybe right now. If you are a local suffering from the winter blues why not celebrate winter for what it's worth by participating in Winterfest!
