The beautiful Scibek family…

22 07 2010

On a gorgeous Father’s Day Sunday, we met at Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop’s house for family portraits.

I love this family and was so glad that everyone could be in town to make this happen. Thank you, each of you, for making my job sooooo fun! It was great seeing all of you!  Harrison, thanks for being my third arm and taking care of the “interviews” so I could make this slideshow even more special for your grandparents.  (I will say that next time, I will have an external microphone so voices are more audible).

Shareen, thanks for working with me and coordinating the communication throughout your family. I love you so much.

Frank and Carol, Shareen and Scott, it was great seeing you the other night when you were here for your Portrait Premiere.  I’m thrilled that you like your photographs.

I hope you enjoy your slideshow! and always enjoy each other’s company.

for you generosity.

The voting for the International Charity Model Search has ended.  Because of our wonderful families that participated and you, we raised almost $750 through your online voting in less than 2 weeks!!  That money will go to Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep to help support this wonderful organization.

I am so proud of the work our families did to get the word out.  They emailed their friends and families, they posted messages on their facebook pages and they made phone calls.  Great job!  I am incredibly honored to be your photographer and friend.  NILMDTS is near to my heart and I appreciate everybody’s participation.

Congratulations to all of the state winners! I love how all of the families and photographers around the nation worked so hard to bring awareness and donations to NILMDTS. We should find out soon what the total amount raised for the nation is; I will pass the info along.

Thanks again to my beautiful, wonderful families.

Slideshow of the beautiful families raising money for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.

6 04 2010

Three wonderful and beautiful families have partnered with Pam Long Photography this year to help raise money and awareness for the wonderful organization, Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.  NILMDTS provides remembrance photography to parents suffering the loss of a baby with the free gift of professional portraiture.  We believe these images serve as an important step in the family’s healing process by honoring their child’s legacy.  Please click on this link to see why I volunteer for NILMDTS and why the Gibson, Luber and Garner families are participating in this contest.

As many of you are aware, last year we were able to raise over $2500 in the votes cast for America’s Cutest Child.  Throughout the nation, over $164,000 was raised by people generously voting for over 2000 cutie pie models.  Thank you for your generosity and open hearts.  This year we are excited to be representing these 3 beautiful families.  Each family is near and dear to my heart.  Some have started as friends and became clients, while others have started as my clients and have become friends.  I love them all and wish them all luck.  I’m really, secretly, hoping for a 3-way tie!! 🙂

One more wonderful family to consider for the National Charity Model Search

1 04 2010

for America’s cutest family.

The Garner family!  This family portrait was taken on Rob and Denise’s 10 year wedding anniversary!  Rob, with great detail, secretly planned a surprise anniversary party for Denise at the Peabody Court Hotel.  What Denise knew was that she would be getting a new family portrait to display on her wall.   The portrait would be taken in the afternoon and then the family would be together that evening for a special dinner – that’s what Denise knew.  Plan “A” was for the family portrait to be taken on the steps of Mt. Vernon Place United Methodist Church, the same place that Denise and Rob stood ten years ago as bride and groom.  The weather didn’t cooperate so we stayed inside for their portraits, we were able to get wonderful images in their spacious penthouse room. Later that evening, Denise was brought to tears as the elevator opened to the terrace level at the Peabody and she was greeted by 100+ friends and family.

Last year, the Garner’s older 2 daughters participated in the National Model Search for the cutest kiddo.  Toward the end of the contest, Denise contacted me to see if there was a way to find out the number of votes cast for each of our models.  She and her husband, through The Garner Team at Coldwell Banker,  wanted to match the current donations of all of our models!  Instead of putting the additional money on their own children, they matched what each of the children currently had!!!  A totally unselfish, generous gift to the other models and to Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.

The National Charity Model Search contest raises money and awareness for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, a wonderful, charitable organization. Please feel free to click on the link to see why I became a volunteer for NILMDTS and why my studio and clients are participating in the contest.

Click here and you will go directly to the voting site.  Once there,  click on Tour City and scroll to “Baltimore”, then click on ‘Garner’.  You will then have the opportunity of voting for their family.  Each vote is $1, you can choose to cast any # of votes you’d like!  We, and NILMDTS appreciate all of the votes and your consideration.

Denise and Rob, thank you for your continued loyalty throughout the years, I love photographing your family.  Best of luck in the contest!  Thanks for helping us, once again,  raise money for this great cause!

Another cute family for the National Charity Model Search!

29 03 2010

The Luber family.  Wow, I’ve had a great time with them throughout the years.  I could link you to at least a dozen posts on my blog that have them or one of their family members involved in a Pam Long Photography photo session.

Last year, Steve and Mia’s oldest daughter won the National Charity Model Search for the cutest kiddo for Maryland!  Part of the prize that the state winner receives is a photo session by world renowned photographer, Sandy Puc.  Sandy coordinates this contest with her 52-city speaking tour (in the U.S. and Canada) so that the winners can be models on stage while Sandy  shares her techniques to the crowd of photographers attending her seminar.  The Lubers lived in New Jersey  at the time and as much as it pained Mia,  they weren’t able to make it to the seminar in Maryland last year.  They have since moved back to Maryland and are hopeful that their family wins for Maryland this year so that they have the opportunity to meet Sandy after all!

I have only 9 slots open! Call now for this fantastic opportunity!

25 02 2010

Awesome announcement!!!
I’m thrilled to announce that Pam Long Photography is, once again, participating in the International Charity Model Search to raise funds for the non-profit Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Foundation. (NILMDTS.org). Last year we searched for America’s Cutest Child. I was thrilled that all of the children that we photographed placed in the top 10 in Maryland! This year we will raise money while voting for America’s Cutest Family!! Call our office at 410.719.0405, we have only 9 slots left.

Are you like me??
Each morning I wake up wondering where the time has gone. My children are only 5 and 6 but it seems like only yesterday when I was holding them in my arms wondering if I was swaddling them just right, wiping dribble from their chins, feeding them at all hours of the night, teaching them to potty in the toilet, to tie their shoes, to use their manners (okay, so that is a continual job!). Now they are doing their own homework, coming up with creative, new games, and making friends without needing mommy or daddy’s encouragement! I just finished photographing another High School senior and I heard what I always hear, “They grow up soooo fast!”, “We haven’t had professional portraits since they were little; I wish we had taken more!”.

“Our experience with Pam Long was very comforting. She has a way of making everyone feel at ease and happy. We even had our little puppy and dog in the shots! Her positive attitude and cheerful enthusiasm for her art shows through her photos. Pam also really listened to us in what we wanted. She offered helpful tips to make our vision even better.” The Hansen family

Don’t wait until you look ‘just right’!
If you’re anything like me, you say to yourself, “I’m going to wait until I lose a few more pounds….until my hair grows out….until I get my hair cut….when I find the time”. Don’t wait, your children don’t care what you look like. They care that they have tangible memories. When they are older and showing their children the family portraits of when they were little, they will be filled with wonderful memories of those times in their lives when they were growing up!

An excuse to get together with your siblings!
Are you an adult juggling your daily demands of life and aren’t able to see your parents and/or siblings as much as you’d like? You don’t need to be ‘married with children’ to participate in America’s Cutest Family! Use this promotion as an extra reason to get together with your family!  Make an afternoon or evening of it and have lunch or drinks after having fun taking portraits (yes, it’s FUN!!).

“Our experience having our large (26 members) family having a photo session just two days prior to Christmas was, to say the least – one of the best days ever – and we often talk about what a warm and happy memory this has become in our family. Our picture is perfect – we were having such a good time that it shows in the picutre. Every time I look at the picture on the wall, I smile remembering that day! Thank you Pam!” Mrs. DeLalla
