Extended family portraits!

17 03 2016

This wonderful family came into our portrait studio during the holidays. Grandma and Grandpa, two sisters and their beautiful families. Lori, one of the sisters, is local to Ellicott City, MD. She contacted me to create their new extended family portraits and we were able to get together to achieve that during the holidays!

Lori remembered that we had done a fundraiser for her friend’s son that had recently been diagnosed with leukemia. We had held “Chase-ing Away Cancer”, offering mini portrait sessions  and we had the honor and immense privilege of photographing 14 families on a beautiful Sunday in November! 🙂 We’ll be blogging and sharing great photos about that eventually. I was happy to schedule Lori’s extended family portrait session and add to the fundraising efforts for the Wheatley family.

I had a great time with this family and enjoyed hanging out with all of them. I loved watching them interact together, they joked, they laughed and I really enjoyed the vibe they all had with one another. Following their portrait session, the men and kids went shopping along Historic Ellicott City’s Main Street while Lori, her sister Becca and mom, Karen, sat down to choose their favorite portraits.
I hope you enjoy their family portraits. If you’re reading this, please ask yourself this question: When was the last time you had your family portrait taken? Has it been more than a year or 2? Then please get hold of a photographer and schedule a portrait session for you and your family. Of course, I’d love for you to call Pam Long Photography, but if you already have a photographer, please consider contacting him or her and get your family’s portrait sessions scheduled! 🙂

Family portraits at the Baltimore Harbor

28 11 2014

I don’t even know how to start this blogpost…..I’ve known Vanessa for several years now.  We met through the Maryland Professional Photographer’s Association years ago when we both had photography studios in Howard County.  She was the go-to photographer in Howard County for high school seniors, created incredible family portraits for her clients and has an immense wealth of info between her ears about photography and business! 🙂 After having her sweet baby boy, she decided to retire from the photography industry and move into another direction. I’ve learned so much from her and thankful for our friendship.  When she contacted me recently to create their new family portraits, I was elated…and honored…and nervous!! 😀

We are all familiar with (& live) the cliche’ that time flies…and it does…and Vanessa did not want another moment to go by without celebrating their family. When we got together for their portrait consultation, she had a lot of ideas. We were able to discuss them and really design a session that fit their needs and worked well for their family.  We were happy to be able to schedule their photo shoot during the time that Vanessa’s parents would be in town.  I was so happy to be able to create their extended family portrait along with Vanessa and Daniele’s family portrait.

Vanessa and I scoped out lots of different, potential locations throughout Baltimore a couple of weeks prior to their portrait session.  It was a great excuse to get a good walk in, catch up and find the perfect locations for their family.

The day of their shoot…wow, such a fun time with their awesome, beautiful family!  The weather was PERFECT, which photographers always hope for, but never count on. 🙂 The style and color choices of their clothes couldn’t have fit more perfectly into the Baltimore Harbor backdrop.  Talk about color harmony…..fantastic job, Vanessa and Karen!

“Dear Pam,  My heart is overwhelmed with how beautifully you photographed our family during our recent family portrait session in Baltimore! To see the natural expressions and playfulness that we enjoy on a daily basis actually captured in professional portraits brought tears to my eyes. (Okay, who are we kidding – I wept a little bit.) You took the time to listen to what we envisioned for our family and made it a reality. The investment we made by choosing you as our family photographer is worth every dollar! My heart is full.” Vanessa Ard

Vanessa and Daniele, thank you so much for choosing me to create your new family portraits.  It meant the world to me and I’m thrilled that you are so happy with the results. I know what it meant to you and I admire you for being so vulnerable and allowing me into the the intimate setting of your family. Love you both!

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.
