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.

Fernand and Odette Tersiguel Pam Long Photography studio Historic Ellicott City

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!

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.

Meg, a beautiful and talented Class of 2014 High School Senior {Ellicott City Photographer}

6 04 2014

Meg is one of our beautiful, and very talented, high school seniors from Mt Hebron High School.  We had a wonderful time getting to know Meg, not only during her photo shoot, but during her entire senior portrait experience.  She is one our Class of 2014 Spokesmodels and we’ve enjoyed working with her and her family!  Thank you, Meg, for being a wonderful representative for Pam Long Photography this year!

Meg is an exceptional volleyball player, one of the Captains of the team, and has had a great year as part of the Mt Hebron girls volleyball team.  She is also part of  the phenomenal Madrigal Singers.  If you ever have a chance to hear this talented group perform, go!  For the past 2 years, as part of the Midnight Madness in Historic Ellicott City, they have performed on the front porch of the Howard House, right in front of my studio!  Definitely one of the musical highlights of the evening!

Some of the clothes that Meg is wearing in her images are courtesy of Sweet Elizabeth Jane, one of our favorite boutiques here on Main Street, Ellicott City.  She loves to travel, so we jumped on the opportunity to climb inside their beautiful store windows, that happened to have a travel theme, and she briefly became a window model! 😀

Meg, you know I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you this year and believe in you so much! I’m looking forward to continuing to watching you exceed in life.  Please stay in touch!  Thank you! 🙂

Lindsay’s Class of 2014 Senior portraits and video slideshow {Ellicott City High School Senior Photographer}

22 10 2013

“I have been anticipating having my senior portraits taken ever since I was a little girl, and I cant believe it’s my time already. I walked in and Pam greeted me with a smile and a hug.  The experience with Pam was a blast, and not only was I having fun, but she made me feel beautiful inside and out. She asked me what music I listened to and played it the entire time she was taking pictures of me. I was able to be myself in an environment that I was comfortable in and she definitely brought my personality into my portraits. After my session I couldn’t wait too see Pam again to see all of my pictures.” ~Lindsay

Boy, sometimes I feel like I’m sounding redundant, but I LOVE photographing high school seniors.  It’s awesome to hear their plans, their hopes and dreams, to see their determination, their vulnerabilities, their quirkiness, to hear stories of their school days and to hear them talk about their friends and family.  On some days, I’ve photographed sweet, little newborns and then high school seniors, and it’s almost surreal how time fast forwards in warp speed within a few hours!  It’s truly an honor and privilege to create portraits for these young adults.  Being around Lindsay reassures me that all is good in the world! 🙂

Lindsay is amazing and we were so blessed to have created her senior portraits!  She’s one of our Senior Spokesmodels from Centennial High School and we had such a fun time with her.  She’s creative, smart, kind, easy to direct, and GORGEOUS!  She’s polite and appreciative, confident and determined. Lindsay has so many awesome “looks” (she can rock the serious face, can’t she?), and I could’ve photographed her for 10 hours and never run our of  ideas.  She is quite a budding photographer herself, and at times you’ll find her in the studio helping out either in the camera room or in the office.

Toward the end of her session, her mom (also gorgeous!), brought their dog, Gordon!  OMGosh, I had to double take because of his cuteness!  He was also a natural in front of the camera. 😉

I hope you enjoy viewing Lindsay’s high school senior portraits as much as I did creating them with her.  Be sure to check out the video slideshow of Lindsay’s senior pictures too!

Lori, Mike and Lindsay, thank you so much for trusting me to create these senior images for you!  Please keep in touch! 🙂 You’ve got an incredible future ahead, Lindsay, I’m looking forward to watching you move forward. xo

15 10 2013

Brad is one of our awesome Class of 2014 PLP Spokesmodels.  He’s a senior at Glenelg High.  We had the privilege of photographing his brother, Evan a couple of years ago and it’s been great getting to know Brad this year.

Besides his good looks and charm, Brad’s got a great sense of humor.  He works part time and is a basketball referee, a baseball umpire and enjoys playing rec basketball too.  Another example of how awesome the young people of today are!

Thank you, Brad, for hanging out with us.  I hope you had a great time!

Harriet and Rich, I appreciate the trust you’ve placed in us over the years to create portraits of your sons.  I hope you’re always able to look at these portraits and remember what wonderful sons you’ve raised and able to see their true personalities through these images!  You’ve got a lot to be proud of.  Not only are your sons good looking and nice young men, but smart, funny, well liked and polite too!  Now we’ve got to create your new family portrait! 😉

Here’s Brad’s video.  Hope you enjoy!
