2017 has been a fabulous year, all because of my amazing clients. As I look back on 2017 with gratitude for my wonderful clients and pride in the work that I have done for them I also look forward to what 2018 has in store. In 2017 every senior portrait session that I photographed was […]
National dance day comes but once a year and that’s sad when you have such an exceptional dancer in front of your camera. I got to spend a lovely afternoon with Liz as she showed me around her dance studio where she does Ballet, tap, and a few others types of dance. She is graceful […]
I recently spent a lovely afternoon at the beach with most of my 2018 Senior Team for our surf themed shoot. It was one of the best beach days this summer and the company couldn’t have been better. We borrowed some surf boards from friends of mine, Alison and Bobby, who brought along their lifted […]
I love working with my Senior Team during the year and this girl is one of the jewels of our team. We spent the evening out at one of my favorite spots on the shore, Bordeleau Winery, capturing her portraits. I also love when our seniors incorporate things into their portraits that have special meaning […]
I recently read that Maryland has made another top 10 list. This list isn’t one to brag about. Our lovely state apparently is ranked number 4 in the top ten list of most depressed states in America. The list is based on tweets and you can find the original study here(CNN Twitter Based Study). I […]
Over the years I have had seniors that I have photographed that have had “special” moments with celebrities. I think of Hannah getting to shake hands with Taylor Swift, Sydney getting to hang with George Cloney, and now Alison, who apparently had a moment with the Biebs at a recent concert that her mom […]
I’m so excited about working with my Senior Team this year. We’ve gotten off to a great start and I would love to introduce you to the AMAZING girls that I will be working with and photographing all year! Can’t wait to see what else we capture this year and the memories that we will […]
You are the best!! Thank you so much for these gorgeous pics!! It was so hard to narrow them down, which is a wonderful problem to have!-Mackenzie 2017
I've loved getting to know James during my year as a senior rep.! You are guaranteed lots of laughs and fun adventures with any shoot you do. His creative and unique style allowed my senior pictures to represent my personality perfectly and I am so happy with how they turned out!-Olivia 2017
Every shoot has provided me with beautiful images and truly captured not only the surface of who I am, but also show my character and personality! James is super fun to work with, and is always open to new ideas to make your portraits your very own. Can never thank him enough for capturing such a significant time in my life. -Loryn 2017
Hi! I’m James. One of the hardest things for me to do is talk about myself. I’d much rather tell you about all of our amazing clients. So, you have an idea of who you might be working with…here goes, just a quick glimpse at my story.
I grew up in Pennsylvania but moved to the Eastern Shore in the late 90’s. I met my wife in Lewes, DE, married her, and began to raise a family. One of the many things I love about this area is being so close to the ocean. I miss the mountains of PA, but I love the beach life as equally, especially if there is a bonfire involved.
I have worn a lot of career hats in my life: working on the human genome project right out of college, then many years as the Area Director with Young Life here in Salisbury working with high school, middle school, and college students, then dove full-time into creating a photography business.
I love getting to spend time with high school seniors and to provide them with amazing portraits and a great experience in front of the camera.
When not photographing you can find me at a local coffee shop reading, at the beach with my family(that’s probably the first place you should look), at a local swim meet(both our boys swim for the Y team), or out an about with something to do with Young Life.
I look forward to meeting you and getting to tell your story.
