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.

Ashleigh’s senior portraits in Historic Ellicott City

2 05 2016

Many people think that high school senior portraits need to be taken during the summer, prior to the student’s senior year. And, for many of seniors, they are! We, at Pam Long Photography, do meet with a lot of our seniors during the summer, fall and winter of their senior year. All of the high schools have different deadlines for yearbook picture submissions; so if a senior has us creating the traditional drape or tux image, timing is definitely dictated by those deadlines.  Our schools in Howard County, MD have deadlines that are spread out from beginning of December, through mid April! I love the flexibility that gives us and allows us to work with these high school students throughout the entire year. We offer a limited number of sessions each week, and it’s awesome that these families can schedule their session when it fits in to their busy schedule as well as ours!

Ashleigh’s mom had contacted us because her daughter had seen some of our senior portraits of her friends. I was thrilled to meet with them during their portrait consultation. Through talking with her and discussing her style, and having her look through several of our senior photos, I knew which direction we’d take Ashleigh. We eagerly set the date for her senior portrait session!

The snowy, windy, winter weather prevented us from meeting for her portrait session a couple of different times, but when we were able to get together, we had a FUN photo shoot! 🙂 Ashleigh was able to fall in to any pose so easily and naturally. The different facial expressions that I asked for seemed effortless on her part….she was really incredible in front of the camera, quite natural.

Ashleigh and Kim, thank you for choosing Pam Long Photography! I’m glad you’re thrilled with your senior portraits, I enjoyed working with you so much, truly such an honor! Plus, my abs got a great workout from all of the laughter! 😀

Brian’s senior portrait session in Ellicott City!!

21 04 2016

Howard County High School Senior photographer Pam Long Photography studio Ellicott City MD

Brian is a Class of 2016 high school senior from Mt Hebron High School.

When Brian’s mom contacted me about taking her son’s senior portraits, it was a very familiar conversation. Throughout his entire school year he expressed no interest in having his senior pictures taken. I know I’ve said this before, but most senior guys come to our photography studio because ‘mom wants the pictures’ (but then thankfully, they leave realizing how fun it is) :-). But this time, it was a little different from the normal script. Brian had seen some portraits that we had created of other seniors and specifically of some very talented musicians, and he liked them! YAY!  He had a change of heart and wanted senior portraits after all! Brian is an extremely gifted and dedicated musician, he’s an extraordinary bassoon player. And with the marching band, he plays the saxophone!

In addition to Brian’s musical accomplishments, he’s also a member of the National Honor Society. And, as if academics and music aren’t enough, he works as a life guard and swim instructor!  He’s been accepted and will be attending University of Maryland in the Fall where he’ll be a Music and Computer Science major! Congratulations, Brian! 🙂

Of course we created the formal portrait for him but he was interested in some casual photos as well.

I love these words that Lisa, Brian’s mom, shared with me, “These pictures of Brian warm my heart; the essence of his talent shines in his eyes. I am so proud of his accomplishments. I wish for Brian to continue to follow his passion; and success and happiness will always be his.”

Brian was very enjoyable to work with, he had great input and felt comfortable sharing his expectations.

Brian, I’m so glad you had a change of heart and wanted senior portraits after all. I really appreciate you and your mom choosing Pam Long Photography.  Thank you. I’m looking forward to seeing what your future holds; I know it’s going to be tremendous! 🙂

Ashley’s senior portraits and YouTube video!

16 02 2016

What an amazing time I had with Ashley! She’s a Class of 2016 Senior from Reservoir High School.

She’s so pleasant, sweet, funny, humble and beautiful! And folks, you may already know this about me, but when I say beautiful, I’m talking about inner beauty that shines. One of the reasons Ashley is beautiful is because of her kindness that radiates from within.  🙂

Ashley brought some great outfits to her session and we were able to take advantage of the incredible weather as we walked throughout Main Street in Historic Ellicott City! We also popped backed into our studio and created some beautiful portraits of her in the camera room! Ashley was up for anything and adjusted well to all of the different situations.

In addition to Ashley’s busy academic schedule, she plays tennis and soccer for Reservoir and is also an active member of Deca! She’s looking forward to starting her college career at University of South Carolina next year!

Ashley’s mother, Caroline, was with us during her portrait session. This is what she had to say about her wonderful daughter, “I’m proud of Ashley because of the beautiful person she has become. I hope health and happiness for her. I will always remember when she first looked up at me and I knew my life was changed forever. She is my world.”

Here’s Ashley’s slideshow video of part of her senior experience with us.

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!
