Family Portraits in the Park

Holidays when families gather is a perfect time for portraits!

During Christmas the Gorhams’ 3 daughters were in town as well as additional family members.  Many pictures were taken including small groups – the parents, the sisters, the aunts, the cousins – and the whole group.

The shoot took place on Christmas eve in beautiful Buddy Attick Park in Greenbelt, MD.  Great memories were captured and it was a fun time for all including the photographer.

Dance and party like a good family should

Cousins Mike and Janie had the opportunity to dance and enjoy each others’ company at a family event.  One lives up north and the other in the south.  Many times family only has the chance to get together at funerals or sad occasions.  This was at Janie’s brother’s retirement party and a good time was had by all.

I hope your family is dancing!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mine – My Bookshelf

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mine

When I think of “Mine” I think of my office and my bookcase which helps describe me. It is full of Bibles, pictures, photography books, math books, John Grisham and Walter Mosely novels, magazines, history books, and stuff. My stuff!

Marital Bliss

Marital Bliss

Barney and Lucille have enjoyed many years of marital bliss.

I photographed a friend’s family get together. It was a barbecue with family gathering from different parts of the country. Numerous pictures were taken but these two images of the grandparents are my favorites.

Not your everyday dentist office.

One of last week’s assignments was a photo shoot for Ambiance Dental Spa in Bowie, MD.

It’s not your everyday dental practice.  Dr. Clarine Green Hightower describes it as a dental spa and you will know what she means when you walk in and see the warm colors, comfortable seating, and patient friendly operatories (I just learned that word).  There is a great staff and a  number of other services and treatments that welcome patients.

Does this look like your dentist’s office?

Said he didn’t like taking pictures. First photo shoot.

Model:  Eric A.

An unplanned photo shoot sometimes can turn out to be one of the best.  I met and photographed Eric on the same day.  He had accompanied a friend on a photo shoot. At first he said he was not interested in taking pictures   Later I found him to be open and relaxed and he took some great pictures.   I think he is going to pursue modeling.
