Hooooraaaaaay! The 2017 "People Love Us On Yelp" award is out, and our photography studio is an award-winner for the second year running! Nothing warms our heart more than having the honor of creating gorgeous portrait photography of babies, families, couples, and individuals, and having amazing, wonderful clients who are nothing short of ravingly joyous about their experience with our photography studio. Thanks to each and every one of you who took a few moments from your busy schedule to share your thoughts online with others this past year!
It was just a few months after Dr. Stephanie’s ‘not-your-normal’ outdoor business headshots session in Rockville, Maryland for her website redesign that I got a call from her to chat about indoor business headshots, specifically for the cover of a book she’s been working on. Her publisher wanted a somewhat formal, yet not too formal, look for the cover. And with Dr. Stephanie being a relationship coach, they were envisioning her standing or sitting at a counter, to go along with the idea of a relationship repair counter. And so Dr. Stephanie came over from Laurel, Maryland to our new photography studio in Germantown-Clarksburg, Maryland, where we mostly photographed around our kitchen counter, but also did some standard business headshots on a black backdrop that could be used on the book’s back cover if needed. Titled “Dr. Stephanie’s Relationship Repair for Couples,” the book is out and you can check it out either directly through Dr. Stephanie’s or on Amazon.com! Congratulations, Dr. Stephanie!
And, here are some of the outtakes from our business headshots session.
For our third editorial photography assignment this year for the Phoenix Patriot Magazine, we found ourselves again in Washington DC, this time at the headquarters of the storied American Legion. The magazine had selected two health care coverage experts – Roscoe Butler and Gerardo Avila – to share their experience in the magazine’s fall 2014 issue with exiting servicemen on how to ensure continuing health care coverage. We had so much fun with this Washington DC editorial photography shoot – Roscoe (who seemed so serious on the phone beforehand) surprised us by keeping us laughing throughout while Gerardo was the serious one, and we received such a warm welcome from the Legion’s Media Marketing guru and fellow professional photographer, Marty Callaghan. An amazing experience! Thank you to all!
This was our second editorial photography shoot for the Phoenix Patriot Magazine. This time we headed into Washington DC, where we found Hakeem Basheerud-Deen, the subject of the magazine’s fall issue profile. It was his work at OPM and more importantly, how he got there, that inspires others and piqued the interest of the Phoenix Patriot. Read it in the fall issue by clicking the images below. Congratulations to Hakeem!

When I met Steve Braxton at his new home in Woodbridge, Virginia, it was under the auspices of the Phoenix Patriot Magazine, who had hired me to photograph Steve for a profile in the magazine about how he pursued and found financial freedom during his thoughtfully planned transition from military to civilian life. Steve has a lot to be proud of. Complement that with a warm and bubbly, happy and engagingly friendly personality, and you’ve got someone you’ll want to have on your side.
