Class of 2016 Senior Spokesmodels Highlights video!

4 03 2016

These Class of 2016 high school seniors are quite an incredible group of young adults! They attend high schools in Howard County and Anne Arundel County, Maryland and I’m honored and happy that they are Pam Long Photography Class of 2016 Senior Spokemodels! We’ve created some of these senior photos in our portrait studio as well as the streets of Historic Ellicott City and loved shooting on location with them too. These seniors ROCKED it no matter where we were.

These high school seniors not only do well academically but are involved in sports, clubs, music groups, business groups, volunteer with charitable causes, all while maintaining a challenging academic schedule….touring colleges….filling out college applications….enjoying family and friends….having a life! They are kind, smart, giving, fun, beautiful, talented, driven, successful and sweet.

Some of the outfits and accessories that our seniors are wearing are courtesy of A Journey from Junk and Sweet Elizabeth Jane, two of our favorites boutiques on Main Street, be sure to check them out when you’re in Historic Ellicott City, Maryland! Hair and makeup for our Spokesmodel Day provided by Blush, definitely keep them in mind for your professional needs.

We wish the entire Class of 2016 all the best! Your adventure awaits! Keep in touch with us – we want to celebrate your successes! Thank you for choosing Pam Long Photography to create your senior portraits! AND Thank you for representing Pam Long Photography.  I’m looking forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks for our next Spokesmodel shoot! 🙂

#ShopSmall in Historic Ellicott City!

28 11 2015

Let’s face it, nobody likes driving around a busy parking lot, looking for a space to park only to find one and somebody from the opposite direction snags it from you. 😦 This time of year you aim to get somewhere early to avoid blowing though half a tank of gas driving around…and around…and around the parking lots looking for that one empty space.  Well, Historic Ellicott City has a solution for you!

Do you know about the stairs that connect Main Street to the Courthouse Parking lot?  It’s as if a new parking garage was built without the nuisance of a new parking garage being built! 🙂     Thank you, Lyndsey, for helping me showcase the Ellicott City Stairs!                                        Ellicott City Stairs Steps to Courthouse Pam Long Photography

These stairs lead you to hassle free parking! Located upper Main, behind the The Ellicott Mills Brewing Company and close to The Wine Bin, the stairs serve as a great solution to parking challenges and may be used in the evening and weekends. Gone are your parking issues! Now you can easily support your local small businesses knowing that you’ll have plenty of parking on weekends!

Check out how fast you can get to Main Street when you park at the Courthouse:

Along with the newer parking option, Historic Ellicott City has several different parking areas along with street parking. You can find the specific lots listed here.

Here’s Howard County Councilman, District 1, Jon Weinstein and Howard County’s County Executive, Allan Kittleman, at the top of the stairs (nobody was blinded by the sun in the making of this photo 🙂 ).

Ellicott City’s Historic District is a wonderful shopping destination with a diverse offering of goods, services and restaurants and is home to a thriving art community.  You can find a list of businesses and events here.

Rachel Rawlings, manager of Salon Marielle, 8239 Main Street, shared with me, “Our salon guests love having the option of parking at the courthouse and taking the stairs. Especially during busier times like during our wonderful festivals. It’s a beautiful view and walk down from the top of town.”

Our charming town provides a plethora of choices for you and you’ll be certain to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones.

So, head on down to Main Street in Ellicott City, support small businesses and don’t forget, parking is easy peasy!

When you’re on the stairs, be sure to take a selfie, use  #ECstairselfies and perhaps you’ll be added to the Instagram page! 🙂

Here’s how Richard Ellsberry, an Ellicott City resident, feels about the addition of the stairs, “For me, any long-term solid infrastructure is a good thing, and those stairs are going to be there in a hundred years. They look great & help with storm water management.”

Not only do these stairs help us by providing an entire new parking option, but as Richard mentioned, they have a phenomenal other purpose. Check out this amazing video, made by Cecilia Lane!

Sweet Elizabeth Jane celebrates 3 years on Main Street, Historic Ellicott City

21 04 2014

Businesses, boutiques and restaurants celebrated First Friday in style this month!  First Fridays, in Ellicott City’s Historic District, is a great celebration for our shoppers.  Stores are open late, live music performed by awesome local talent fills the street and people get to enjoy our incredible shopping and specials!

This month, Sweet Elizabeth Jane celebrated their THIRD birthday, and as always, did it with style!  A colorful, festive storefront greeted customers, Lauren Ruth Ward performed live and SEJ’s photobooth brought out the silliness of their customers.  Tammy, the creative genius owner of Sweet Elizabeth Jane, and her “apronologists” buzzed around the store all night, guiding and assisting their customers to help fill their needs and wants.  Whether it’s home decor, clothes, jewelry,  kitchen accessories, furniture, or clothing accessories, everybody got an eyeful of goodness.  Lots of happy people left with bags full of useful, unique items.

It was awesome seeing people gather around the sidewalks as Lauren sang.  Her passion and the richness of Lauren’s soul-filled voice invited the passerbys to stop, listen and take a stroll inside  to discover everything incredible under SEJ’s ceiling. Here are some of the pictures from their photobooth as well as candid photos of their night.

Thank you, Tammy and Kaitlyn, for asking Pam Long Photography to document your fun evening.
