High school senior portraits and family portraits!

22 05 2015

I had such an amazing time with Olivia and her family during their portrait session.  It was a beautiful afternoon, perfect weather and good people!

When I got together with Olivia and her mom for her portrait consultation, it was fun getting to know her! She is absolutely adorable! What a precious and beautiful young lady. She’s so sweet and humble! We discussed the possibility of creating a family portrait for them as well…..and they made it happen! Obviously, with 2 high schoolers, we know how busy they are and how difficult it is to coordinate everyone’s schedule! This lovely family saw great value in capturing these moments in time, in both celebrating their daughter’s wonderful accomplishment of graduating from high school and celebrating their beautiful family! So, we were honored and fortunate to be able to not only create Olivia’s incredible senior portraits, but also their beautiful family portraits!

Olivia is a Class of 2015 Senior at Century High in Sykesville, MD.  She was a valuable member of their track team. She loves to hang out with her friends!  This fall, she’s going to be attending Howard Community College as part of their Rouse Scholar Program!

We wish you the Very Best, Olivia, in all of your future endeavors! You are awesome!  I’m so happy to have the chance to get to know you and create your senior portraits!

Senior Portraits for Madeline!

10 04 2015

Thank you, Madeline!

What a wonderful time we had at Madeline’s Senior portrait sessions! I’ve been able to watch Madeline grow from a little girl into a beautiful, intelligent and sweet young lady.  She attends Arundel High School and plays Varsity field hockey and lacrosse. I was thrilled when her mom called the studio to schedule her session and to let me know that Madeline would be part of our Class of 2015 Spokesmodel Team! While at our studio, Madeline enjoyed having her hair and makeup done by the fabulous Lauren Ward!

Because Madeline is on our Spokesmodel team, she was able to have a fun shopping spree at Sweet Elizabeth Jane and had a great time choosing some beautiful outfits and accessories!  Thank you, SEJ! Sweet Elizabeth Jane boutique Ellicott City Photographer High school senior

We also captured her beauty in Fenwick State Park.  The air was warm – it was a sunny Summer day! I had the pleasure of meeting Madeline and her family on location. It was such a blessing to be able to meet them and create these beautiful portraits at the beach. Madeline is so photogenic! 🙂                     High school senior beach photography Ellicott City photographer   Beach photographer high school senior photographer Howard County MD Senior portraits at the beach Howard County photographer Ellicott City MD Senior portraits on the beach Pam Long Photography studio Ellicott City Maryland

Allyson’s Class of 2015 Senior portraits, Howard High School

13 02 2015

For Allyson’s consultation, during both of her photo shoots and for her Portrait Premiere,  her family was there throughout the entirety and made the experience even more fun!  It doesn’t happen often, but I love when mom and dad, and in this case, beautiful younger sister, comes along to enjoy the Senior Experience.

Allyson is part of our Class of 2015 Senior Spokesmodel team; she attends Howard High School.  She’s quite a remarkable young lady.  She’s beautiful (but doesn’t seem to know it), she’s kind, and intelligent!  She plays Varsity field hockey and lacrosse, and she runs indoor track in the winter!  She is her school’s executive secretary in their Student Government Association.  She is in NHS and the National Spanish Honor Society, as well. Allyson also interns at a pediatrician’s office. And, she is going to be attending Brown University this fall! WOW!!  Congratulations, Allyson!

Allyson was up for anything and really fell into place nicely in front of the camera.  We also had a little shopping spree at one of our favorite boutiques on Main Street, Sweet Elizabeth Jane and courtesy of SEJ, Allyson was able to model some of their clothes and accessories!

I was very touched when I received an email from Allyson with these very kind words:

“Having Pam Long take my senior portraits was one of the best decisions I have made during my senior year! It was truly a unique experience that I believe I would have struggled to find anywhere else. Pam made me feel like the most beautiful and important girl in the world throughout the entire photography process, and I wish I could do it all over again! My mom’s favorite part was watching the slideshow with all of the photos in it. The beautiful pictures matched with sentimental music brought an unmeasurable amount of emotion with them. Pam’s photos capture a moment in time that my family and I will never forget. Thanks Pam, you are simply the best!  I was overjoyed when my dad brought my pictures home, and I can’t wait to share them with everyone else.  Thank you again!”

Allyson, you are welcome.  It was very much my pleasure!  Thank YOU!  I am glad that you chose Pam Long Photography and thrilled to have gotten to know you. So excited that you’re part of our Class of 2015 Spokesmodel team! I know you’re going to continue to shine in college.  I hope you pop in to say hi whenever you’re home on break. 😀

Chris and Mike, thank you so very much for the honor of creating your daughter’s senior portraits.  Thank you, also, for hanging out with us during her photo shoots!  Your daughters are truly sweet, beautiful and intelligent young ladies; I know you are proud! 🙂

Mary Beth’s senior portraits, Class of 2015 Howard High School

1 12 2014

What a joy to hang out with and get to know Mary Beth! We had the pleasure of creating her high school senior portraits this fall and covered a lot of territory in a short amount of time!  We started in our photography studio with a couple of different sets and then we went outdoors and hit the ground running!

Mary Beth is a Class of 2015 senior at Howard High School.  She’s just finished a great season of field hockey with the amazing Girls Varsity Field Hockey team. She’s also involved with Student Government and is a fantastic swimmer!  Along with her busy school schedule, she makes the time to work at one of my favorite boutiques here on Main Street, A Journey from Junk.  She has such a pleasant and fun personality, beautiful smile and I know her parents are very proud of her!  She’s been a joy to get to know and I look forward to following her path, I know it’ll lead to an amazing future. Thank you, Mary Beth (and Maryhelen), for choosing Pam Long Photography to create your senior pictures!

This email from Mary Beth and her mother brought me to tears…

“I don’t think I can put into words how much I love the pictures!

Pam’s work is truly amazing.  The entire experience was so natural and fun!  Mary Beth’s personality and beauty was perfectly highlighted through the photos.  Pam was able to make Mary Beth feel relaxed and natural, and it shows through the huge smile on Mary Beth’s face in the  pictures.  Pam still manages to check up on Mary Beth during work, and really took the time to get to know us.  She is also very involved with the other small business owners in Old Ellicott City and does a great job with tying the community together.  Old Ellicott City would not be the same without Pam, and we absolutely love the photos and the memory of the entire experience!”

Here are some of the portraits that Mary Beth chose.  I hope you like!

Opera singing, rock climbing, vinyl collecting Class of 2015 Senior!

2 11 2014

I love getting to know my clients and Amanda is one amazing high school senior! Amanda is a Class of 2015 Senior at Centennial High School in Ellicott City, MD.  She’s got a great style and sense of being.  She collects vinyl records, she’s a very talented and gifted opera singer and a great friend to many!  Amanda also juggles her busy schedule to include one of her favorite sports….rock climbing.    Centennial High School has an incredible group of singers that join together to form the  school’s Madrigal choir, and Amanda is a member.  Amanda’s highlight this year was to study at Tanglewood, at Boston University this past summer.

“What we loved most about Pam is that she incorporated Amanda’s personality and interests into every second of  her senior portrait session.  From the music Amanda wanted to hear at the shoot, to her unique style of fashion, to the different locations that were personal to her.  All the while making the sessions fun, exciting and, most importantly,  making Amanda feel special.  We were so pleased with Pam Long Photography and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of an experienced, creative and caring photographer.”     Susan and Amanda Krew

When I first met with Amanda and her mom to discuss plans for her custom portrait sessions, ideas were flowing!  She has so many cool interests.  When I realized she collects vinyl lp’s, I immediately thought of the cool new record store that opened down the street from my studio this year.  If you haven’t had the chance to visit Archives Music and Games, you must put it on your list!   They moved to Historic Ellicott City’s Main Street this past year and are a welcome addition. Amanda was already familiar with the store, she’d been there many times, so she was down with the idea to have part of her photo shoot there.  A huge thank you to Jason, from Archives Music and Games, for allowing us to set up, in his store, for this portion of her shoot!  Also, a big thank you goes to Tanya, from A Journey from Junk.  After Tanya learned that Amanda loves vintage clothing, she brought her true vintage dresses from her own closet to wear!  The awesome dress that Amanda is wearing in these next few images are thanks to Tanya. xoxo 🙂

We were also very fortunate to have created some of her portraits in the Peabody Library.  She has studied music at the Peabody Institute for several years.  I was elated that we could spend a few minutes within the walls of that beautiful, amazing building.  Amanda even sang for us, which was a real treat! Her voice is rich and powerful, yet so clear and delicate at the same time.  Her voice soared throughout the library perfectly, as if she’d performed there for years. An amazing future awaits this talented young lady!

Jason’s Senior Portraits {Ellicott City High School Senior Photographer}

22 10 2014

“Pam really captured the essence of Jason in the photo shoot. When I look at his portraits years from now, I will be reminded of who he was in this stage of his life, and I will treasure and be forever grateful for the memory.”  Jo Ann Kohler

I had a great time meeting with Jason and his mom to discuss their needs and wants for senior portraits.  Of course, like most senior guys, he was pretty much here because mom wanted him to be! Most guys aren’t running in to our photography studio asking us to take their pictures.  But….we find, once they’re done, they realize it’s not that bad and they have a great time! 😀 Jason, very kindly, writes, “I felt that the session went very smoothly.  It was easy and I had fun with it!  We got a little creative and I truly enjoyed the experience. I think I could have shot for another hour to be honest! Thank you, Pam.  Sincerely, Jason”

We are proud and honored that Jason is one of our Class of 2015 Senior Spokesmodels.  He is, like most seniors, very busy with a lot of activities and commitments.  Not only does he play baseball and run cross country for Marriotts Ridge High School, but he’s on the Student Government Executive Board too! Seniors have a lot on their plates and balancing their schedules between academic achievements, extracurricular activities, college applications…to name a few, can be a challenge.  I’m always so impressed to see them handle everything!  I’m excited to see what is in Jason’s future!  I know it’ll be magnificent!

We created Jason’s portraits in our photography studio, as well as some of our favorite spots along Main Street in our Historic Ellicott City. I hope you enjoy them; we really had a great time creating them with him.

Thank you, Jason, (and Jo Ann 🙂 ) for choosing Pam Long Photography for your senior portrait needs.

Class of 2014 Senior Spokesmodel team {Ellicott City High School Senior photographer}

1 05 2014

THANK YOU to our phenomenal, fun, beautiful, kind and talented Class of 2014 Senior Spokesmodel team! I’m incredibly proud to know you!

We are honored and pleased that that these seniors chose to represent Pam Long Photography this year. We had a great time getting to know them and hang out with them throughout the year. It was a blast, whether we were in our studio or out on location! It amazes me (and each year, I’m reminded), how good they are at achieving an enormous amount of activities in their daily schedule and still be exceptional with their school commitments. Their accomplishments are remarkable. Again, I’m proud and honored to know them!

Our seniors represented several different high schools from Howard County, MD and Anne Arundel County, MD. We pride ourselves with creating custom works of art while having the ability to help our clients relax and have fun so that their unique personality becomes evident in their portrait. We hope you’re able to see that  throughout this video.

We wish the Class of 2014 all the best! Please keep in touch with us – we want to celebrate your successes! We are looking forward to continuing to watch you grow; we know you’ll become even more amazing! Your adventure awaits! Have fun.

THANK YOU!
