My first wedding working as a “pro” photographer was several years ago as a second shooter for my dear friend, Mandy Sroka. This was one of Mandy’s first weddings and she knew that I loved photography, despite my lack of wedding experience. Now my obsession with photography started a long time ago and is another story for another day. But it is because of Mandy, that I got my first taste of wedding photography and I have never looked back!

Yesterday I went to a fantastic conference for graphic designers called A Day in the Life. I know that technically I am not a graphic designer, but as a photographer, a lot of the same principles apply. Plus, I love learning. I had a great time meeting new people, (including many ‘cyber friends’ whom I have never seen in the flesh before) listening to some awesome lectures, and being reminded again, just how little I know.
The more you know, the more you know how much you don’t know. (Say that ten times fast!) I can say this from first hand experience as a photographer, as a mathematician, and just as a person.
I plan to never stop learning.
Many thanks to Jessica Watson who put together the conference! I got to hang out with my dear friend Neva-lee and chat with my favorite Baltimore photographer, John Waire, and meet up with a bunch of my fellow Bmore Creatives!
Me and Neva-Lee!
We used to talk about opening up a bed and breakfast together. It would be called ‘Nev ‘n Bev’s Bed ‘n Breakfast’. Awesome, huh?!
P.S. Neva-lee has the prettiest eyes.

Spring is in the air! It is finally getting a little bit warmer each day and this weekend is daylight savings time! And best of all, I have an exciting new announcement!
With spring comes graduation, and you will definitely want to remember this joyous occasion! So I am proudly presenting a new Senior Session special for 2011! Class of 2011, its not too late to get in some really shots for graduation announcements and class of 2012, it is not to early to start thinking about your senior photos!
This exciting session is at a location of your choice and you can bring several outfit changes if you would like! This is a chance for your senior to show their own shining personality through in photos to commemorate their last year in high school! This senior session includes a online gallery of your fully edited photos, a hour with me as your photographer in a location of your choosing and 16 wallets to hand out to your friends with a $25 print purchase! I also have special print pricing for those who book this package.
And so your friends don’t get jealous of your awesome and original photos, this senior session package includes new ‘refer-a-friend’ rewards! For every friend you refer that books and completes a senior session with me, you will get a little thank you from me.
Check out Megan’s session from this past fall in the beautiful downtown Annapolis!!
I am so excited to be offering this package this year and I can’t wait for all the beautiful and handsome seniors I get to photograph.
