I got to meet this wonderful girl last week for her senior portraits. Katie is a senior in the Class of 2016 at Stephen Decatur High School where she plays tennis. After high school she wants to study dermatology. Her mother owns a spa in the area and Katie wants to, one day, transform it into a media-spa offering valuable dermatology services to her clients. She is an amazing girl with big dreams. It was a joy for me to create these and many other portraits for her. I hope you enjoy the sneak peeks and that you all have a great Labor Day Weekend.
Meet Luke! I had the pleasure of meeting his older brother, Joey a couple of years back for his senior portraits. I was excited that this family had come back to me to create Luke’s portraits. Luke is an amazing young man. He plays multiple sports, aspires to be a doctor someday, and is part of a wonderful family. We started his portraits at the PHS baseball field, then did a few with his football gear(his the quarteback of the Ram’s football team), and then headed down to Assateague for what turned out to be a beautiful night at the beach. Enjoy the sneak peeks!
Meet Sidney! One of the great joys of my life is getting to work with high school students through a ministry called Young Life. I get to meet students from all walks of life and at different places in their journeys. I met Sidney through Young Life club a few years back and was honored that she asked me to create her senior portraits. This is a young girl with poise and strength and a beauty that is way more than skin deep. We had a beautiful afternoon for portraits and were able to shoot at a variety of locations. We ended the evening at the Cove with another amazing sunset in the books. Sidney, have a great senior year! Enjoy every moment of it…it goes by way too quick. Good luck on the soccer field and see you around in Club. Thanks for having me create your portraits with you.
Meet Sammi! I had the privilege of meeting this amazing young lady the other day for her senior portraits. She had mentioned to me that she loved theater and has been heavily involved in school productions for the past few years. She also would like to make a career out of working in theater. So, we headed to her high school auditorium at Stephen Decatur High School for some portraits that speak to and represent that aspect of her life. It was a cool session and getting to do some portraits that were “outside of the box.” We also spent some time photographing in my studio and then later in the evening we went to the inlet in OC to capture her in one of her favorite places on earth, the beach. She has a bright future ahead of her and I am thankful that I was able to spend a few hours getting to know her and capturing these portraits for her. Have a great senior year Sammi!
Meet Emily! A few years ago I had created portraits for Carley who in turn had her cousin come to me for her senior portraits and now Emily who is friends of the family and had seen my work from across the bridge. I was so excited to meet Emily and to capture her portraits. She will be a senior in the Class of 2016 at Archbishop High School in Severn, MD. She plays hockey….ICE hockey and she loves the beach. We didn’t do any hockey portraits, but we spent some time down at Assateague Island National Seashore capturing her at the beach. Emily, thanks for coming across the bridge to have me take your portraits. It was a great pleasure meeting you and your mom. Enjoy the sneak peeks and I hope you have a fantastic senior year.
Meet Brooke! I had been looking forward to this session for several weeks. This girl is a ball of fun, energy, creativity, and such a joy to photograph. I put a few special touches into her session: like the hand-painted backdrop we used for some of the guitar portraits in the studio, the wall hanging I ordered from India a few weeks ago so that it would arrive in time for her portraits, and having her incorporating some of the journals where she writes her own music. We ended the evening on the beach at Assateague Island National Park with another spectacular sunset. This session and hanging out with Brooke made my week. Brooke, thanks for choosing me to create your portraits. I enjoyed meeting you, getting to know you a bit, and capturing your joy and gorgeousness(is that even a word?). I hope you love these sneak peeks, many more to see when you come in for your viewing appointment. See you soon at Open Mic Night and of course Rock and Roll Revival. Have a great senior year!
Meet Tanesha! I had the privilege of capturing her senior portraits recently. We started in my studio then stopped downtown and finished up at Pemberton park in the rain. Lot’s of outfit changes, pride in her Haitian heritage, excitement about her portraits, and her natural beauty made this a great session. Tanesha, I hope you have a fantastic senior year at WiHi. It was great meeting you and creating your portraits. I hope you love them and I can’t wait for you to see the rest that we captured.
Meet Gabby! I had the privilege of capturing her senior portraits last week. It is always humbling and exciting when a client comes from fairly far away to have my create their portraits. Gabby and her family drove 5hrs from Virginia to spend the afternoon/evening with me down at Assateague Island for her session.
She is a gorgeous, intelligent, and confident young lady full of laughter and poise. It was a great pleasure being with her and getting to create these portraits. As you can see she plays soccer and is a natural in front of the camera. I wish her the best in her senior year and in her desire to play D3 soccer in college next year. I can’t wait to see where this girl will go. Thanks Gabby for trusting me with your portraits and it was awesome meeting you. Have a great senior year!
Meet Amber! I recently got to spend a fantastic evening with her and her mom capturing her senior portraits. We started off in the studio and then headed downtown and out to the softball field at her high school, Mardela High. I love getting to incorporate a senior’s passions and activities into their portraits and it’s easy to see what Amber’s passion is: softball. She is an amazing pitcher and after high school she wants to attend college and become a child psychologist. This was such a fun session. Thanks Amber for coming to me to create your portraits. I hope you loved the experience with my studio and that you love your portraits. Have a great senior year!
Meet Cheyenne! I had the privilege of meeting this beautiful young lady for her portraits last week. She is a senior in the Class of 2016 at Bennett High School. She is super smart, plays softball, and enjoys the beach. We captured a few in the studio then headed downtown, forgot that it was Third Friday and crowded with people, but we still got some pictures in, even went on a rooftop for a few. We ended a beautiful evening out in Bivalve at a nice property on the water. Enjoy the sneak peeks!
