Howard High School Twins Portrait Session

24 06 2016

What a FUN and GREAT time I had with these twin (graduated) high school seniors during their photo shoot! These two seniors are a FANTASTIC reason for mom and dad to be proud! I was very impressed with them during their portrait session and ordering session.They got along so well with each other :-), had fun and laughed with one another, they’re both respectful and an absolute blast to be around! These Class of 2016 Seniors from Howard High School have a tremendous future in front of them.

They have a trio of wall portraits displayed in their home, here is one of their pieces of artwork.Brother and sister formal portrait photographer Howard County Pam Long Photography studio Ellicott City MD

Can’t you tell by their expressions that they are awesome young adults?

I’m so glad that I was able to talk mom into getting in the photo with her kids! She was hesitant, but agreed. 🙂 As you can tell, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Celebrating the wonderful Tersiguel family!

9 07 2015

If you have been to Tersiguel’s French Country Restaurant, then you know how amazing their fabulous cuisine is! In fact, they are celebrating their 40th anniversary of being in business this Saturday! I am thrilled and honored to be photographing this auspicious, sold out, event. We are all so excited about this major milestone and their outstanding accomplishment in Historic Ellicott City.

The founders of Tersiguel’s, Fernand and Odette Tersiguel, are amazing people and I’ve enjoyed getting to know them.  They are an incredible example of the benefits of hard work and determination. They came to the United States in 1963.  In 1980, they opened Chez Fernand on Main Street.  Sadly, the successful Chez Fernand burned to the ground in the fire of 1984.   Fernand and Odette persevered and  re-opened Chez Fernand in downtown Baltimore.   Fortunately for us, they wanted to return to their beloved Ellicott City and Tersiguel’s opened it’s doors, in it’s current location, in October of 1990.

Chef Michel is a 1984 graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in New York. After his time in New York, he worked in Baltimore, with his family, he also worked in France and in California (with Michael Chiarello) and later served as Chef de Cuisine at Left Bank in Larskpur.  In 1997, he returned to Ellicott City to take over as Executive Chef and owner of Tersiguel’s.

In addition to valuing and serving magnificent food, they also value family and preserving family history. I had the honor of photographing three generations of Tersiguel’s: Fernand and Odette, their son, Michel and his incredible wife, Angie, and their two beautiful boys; Lucas and Landon. What an fun morning portrait session we had, it was such a glorious day! I was fortunate enough to have Lauren Ward assist me on this sunny day with this very special family. We were inspired by an family photograph of Fernand and Odette taken on their wedding day, in 1963. (They just celebrated 52 years of marriage!) Congratulations! So, we, too, took a family portrait, and used Tersiguel’s as the backdrop. We also created portraits of this beautiful family inside Tersiguel’s, in the Brit dining room. The Brit is short for the Brittany Room. This refers to the region that Fernand and Odette are from. The dishes in this room are called Quimper. That is also the name of the city in which they are made.  Angie shared with me that Quimpler is one of the coolest places she’s been (perhaps that could be the location of your next family portrait session…..I travel 😉 ).  Be sure to view their story and history via their lovely portraits, as they are displayed throughout their restaurant.

Tersiguel’s French Country Restaurant is located at 8293 Main Street, Ellicott City, MD.  Be sure to visit and dine in this delicious  restaurant, voted Best French Restaurant in Howard County, Maryland.  This is definitely a restaurant that your meal time will become a wonderful dining experience and you’ll leave with delightful memories. Tersiguel’s has been the perfect setting for countless birthday celebrations, weddings, anniversaries, graduation festivities, business functions…..imagine if THOSE walls could talk, what an extraordinary story they would tell.

To Fernand, Odette, Michel, Angie, Lucas and Landon, thank you for allowing me the privilege of spending time with you, to get to know you better, and to document more of your family history, what a great honor. I enjoyed my time with you and look forward to enjoying many more great moments together!

To the entire staff, past and present, of Tersiguel’s, thank you for continuing to strive for the best.  You really help provide memorable moments for your dining guests, thank you.

I hope you enjoy these family portraits that we created together.

Until next time, au revoir and bon appetit!

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!

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.

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!

26 08 2013

We had a wonderful time with this beautiful Class of 2014 High School senior!  She is our Senior Spokesmodel from South River High School.  Katie is an awesome and talented girl with, undoubtedly, a bright future ahead.

We had the privilege of photographing her sister 2 years ago and her cousin last year and we’re honored that she came to Pam Long Photography as well!

Katie is a remarkable young lady. Not only is she a member of National Honor Society and the Success Team, but is phenomenal at sports too! She excels in racquetball, volleyball and tennis!  She’s amazing!

Katie was a lot of fun to hang out with while we created her senior portraits and it’s evident to us that she has a great time in life while working hard at whatever she’s doing at the time.

A huge THANK YOU to A Journey from Junk for sharing some of their awesome dresses and accessories for Katie’s photo shoot!  Thank you!  Make sure you check them out next time you’re in Historic Ellicott City.

THANK YOU, Katie, for allowing us the honor of taking your senior photos. We wish you a wonderful year and look forward to watching it unfold for you!

(Hugs to Samantha and Taylor 🙂 )

Following are some of the images that fill her album along with her video slideshow.  Enjoy! 🙂
