Congratulations to our 2013 high school seniors {Maryland High School Senior Photographer}

23 04 2013

Presenting the Class of 2013! Congratulations Seniors!  We are so happy for you!

We had the best time photographing these wonderful seniors! Just look how beautiful they are! What a wide variety of talented young people we had the privilege of working with! Our seniors ranged from musicians and gymnasts to dancers, artists, and all types of athletes!  Many of these young people were involved in extra-curricular activities: school yearbook committee, chess club, orchestra, key club, drama club, student government association, etc. Our seniors represented several different high schools from Howard County and Anne Arundel County. We met so many funny, smart, interesting people! We had a blast with them all, whether we were in our studio or out on location! There are many awesome backdrops and props at our studio that we were able to utilize with them!  We also greatly enjoy going on location to capture unique portraits of our awesome students! Often, siblings and other family members got in on the fun and joined the photography session! We have a blast working with families and capturing this special time in their young person’s life.

We wish the Class of 2013 all the best! Your adventure awaits! Keep in touch with us – we want to celebrate your successes!

Class of 2014!!  We are currently meeting with and interviewing high school juniors to become our Spokesmodels for the Class of 2014.  Email us asap to receive an application.  pam@pamlongphotography.com  410.988.5563


I’d like to thank some wonderful people that worked with me at Pam Long Photography this past year:

Tracy, you know I love having you work with me.  You’re always willing to jump into different positions in and around the studio and that’s an incredible quality that you have.  I truly appreciate that your attitude is always up!  Thank you!

Hannah, I’m so thankful that you could work with us for a while.  You were never afraid to do whatever was asked of you and so many times you offered to do what was needed to be done before I could even ask you!  Thank you.

Jana and Shelby.  I’m honored that you chose my studio in which to spend your senior year interning.  I love the opportunity that seniors have with the G/T Intern Mentor program.  Way to go for taking advantage of the many tools offered to you.  I hope you were able to pick up some great information that you’ll be able to in your future. It was a pleasure working with you both this year!

To our clients, THANK YOU!  It is truly an honor and privilege to create your portraits and capture a glimpse of your senior year.  I appreciate that fact that you trust us with .

Alia’s Senior Portraits and some beautiful family portraits too! {Howard County Family Photographer}

23 04 2013

We had a fantastic time photographing Alia for her senior portraits. It was great hanging out with her, she’s quite an amazing young lady.

Happily, we were able to coordinate the timing of her photo shoot with her brother’s college break. This gave us the chance to create some fun images of the two siblings as well as family portraits! Don’t be mistaken when you watch the video, there is a brother, a sister and a mom. You will think there are 3 siblings, nope….mom is a gorgeous woman that looks like she could be their sister! Alexander, Alia and Nicole, I’m so glad we were able to spend the afternoon with you all. The respect and love you show toward each other is inspirational.

Thank you, Nicole, for contacting Pam Long Photography for Alia’s senior portraits as well as your family portraits.  I loved hanging out with you and your awesome, beautiful children!  I know how proud you are of them, and rightly so.

Here are some of their beautiful portraits along with their video that showcases some of the fun we had together.

Focus on Ellicott City boutiques – A Journey from Junk {Commercial Photographer Ellicott City}

9 04 2013

Jounrey From Junk Commercial photographer

Since moving our Pam Long Photography’s studio to Historic Ellicott City, I’ve truly enjoyed getting to know the other business owners.  It’s really an amazing group of people that work hard to offer wonderful services and products to their customers.  I’ve always shopped on Main Street and it’s a ‘must-do’ for friends and family when they visit.  When walking the quaint streets of the town you’ll notice the uniqueness that it has to offer,  yet at the same time, comforting familiarity.  If you haven’t been down here lately, I hope you make a trip soon! 🙂

A Journey from Junk is vintage chic with a hip and funky twist! It’s one of my many favorites!  They just celebrated their 5 year birthday on Main Street, Ellicott City!  The same weekend of their birthday celebration, they opened their second store, right around the corner on Tonge Row (look for the fun blue door).  Kelli owns this awesome boutique and Tanya does a phenomenal job managing it with her!  They have a wonderful team of store employees; you’ll always find a happy ‘hello’ waiting for you.

They recently became our local retailer for the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint ®. They will be providing learning workshops in their new location, be sure to call them to add your name to the list, (410) 465-8330.

Kelli says that her love for all things vintage, old and well worn was her inspiration for her boutique in Historic Ellicott City.  And I can tell you from experience, you walk into her store and you instantly feel right at home with a certain amount of comfort and nostalgia.

As you walk around her boutique, you’ll find hand painted furniture, vintage home decor, chandeliers,women’s accessories, clothing, cowboy boots, jewelry, candles and bath and body.
We had a great time capturing the following images to showcase not only their fun and unique clothes they offer but their boutique as well.  Kelli and Tanya work hard to put the fun in funky!

Creative and Collaborative Photo Shoot {Ellicott City Photographer}

2 04 2013

We had the privilege of working with Lauren and Chelsea- two phenomenal women who are both incredible models! We had such a blast – the creative energy was palpable! We had originally scheduled a collaborative photography session with Lauren and it was a bonus that Chelsea could join us, as well!  We created some incredible portraits of our gorgeous ladies.

We absolutely loved working with Lauren! We are so grateful, given her extremely busy schedule, that she was able to participate in this awesome shoot with us! Let me tell you a little bit about Lauren: she is absolutely beautiful, both inside and out! She is fun, kind, generous, lovely. She is multi- talented.  She is a phenomenal barber at Ooh La Lal, and  an incredible make-up artist (she provides hair and make-up services for our clients and always gets rave reviews!). She is an off-the-charts-with-talent singer and songwriter!  Be sure to check out her Youtube page.  NYC – here she comes! She is also a wonderful model and is highly creative!   It was such a joy working with her!  She was open to all of our crazy ideas, she had amazing suggestions, and together we created images that are just stunning!

Chelsea is also incredibly photogenic! Check out her striking green eyes!  And, how fun is her purple hair? Chelsea was a great sport hanging out with us all day while we photographed Lauren and it was such an awesome bonus when she posed for us, as well!

Thank you so much, Lauren and Chelsea!  We wish you the best with all of your goals and dreams!  It was beyond fun hanging out all day with you! xoxo

Love you!
