Spring is here! Spring Celebration, on Saturday, April 19th, 12noon – 7:30pm is Ellicott City’s annual Main Street festival, welcoming in the warm weather and good business! Spend the day walking in and out of local businesses shopping, eating, and enjoying some fun family activities!

Stand Up HoCo
We are participating with Stand Up HoCo in their campaign to prevent bullying. We are very proud to be involved in helping raise awareness for this cause!  Stand Up HoCo’s campaign is designed to educate the community about what bullying is and what we can do to prevent it!  Their motto is: Don’t stand by, stand up! You can learn more about Stand Up HoCo by clicking here.

This project really struck a chord with me.  I have 2 beautiful daughters, ages 9 & 10, and I feel it’s vital that we keep communication open so they know that if there’s a challenge, we can help them work through it.   It scares me, and frankly saddens me, when I hear what is being said and written…and at such a young age!  I hope that by bringing more awareness, it’ll become easier for children to speak up, not only for themselves but for others.

HoCo has a new grassroots project, the Blue Pinky Project, which is led by Jaki Ulman. In particular, this project is designed to raise awareness of bullying among youth.  The Blue Pinky Project challenges members of our community to stand up for one another and promote respect.
🙂
How do you participate? Involvement in The Blue Pinky Project is simple: as you are enjoying the Spring Celebration, stop by our studio, get your pinky fingernail painted BLUE ( yes, guys do it, too) 🙂 and make a “pinky promise” to stand up to bullying!

Need more incentive?: (Don’t worry; we have you covered) We will have awesome volunteers, some local celebrities, politicians, community leaders here to paint your pinkies!  Of course, we’ll take pictures all day and share them in social media.  Not only do we LOVE to help with charities and raise awareness for worthwhile causes, we also like to have FUN!

In addition, EVERYONE that participates that day, will receive a gift certificate to PAM LONG PHOTOGRAPHY for $50 to use toward a future session!!!!!
