5 stars on Google, at last!

I won't pretend to understand how Google's rating system works. I know that I've been fortunate enough to have clients who have left me 5 star reviews on Google, but somehow the average of all the 5 star reviews has been 4.7. Math isn't my strong suit, but that never made sense to me.

However, some recent clients of mine added their review and it magically brought my average Google review rating up to a full 5 stars!!

They were looking for some "non-traditional" headshots, and we had a great time taking some portraits. We reviewed some photo samples, talked about what they liked, and developed a plan for the session. We had a great time collaborating together, and I'm happy to share some of the photographs here.

Year in Review: Playing Chicken with Sea Lions

A collage of images of me playing chicken with sea lions in the Galapagos in 2016.Check out the video to see what happened!
It happened so fast, I stopped in my tracks and screamed! I noticed something big and dark blitzing right toward me!

Hang on. I’m getting ahead of myself. 

2016 has seen more than its fair share of tragedy and death but 2016 was personally AMAZING! Those of you who know me know that if I had an unlimited source of money and no responsibilities, I’d pack a very tiny bag and perpetually travel the world! Well, this year had some bucket list items for sure! Here’s a recap:
Group photo at Machu Picchu in 2016.
There’s so many wonderful memories, let alone travel memories, but the one moment that takes the cake for me is snorkeling with the sea lions in the Galapagos

As it turns out, sea lions in the Galapagos love to play chicken, so they dart at you, then at the very last second, turn their bodies to avoid collision. You can’t help but laugh as they spin around and do this again and again! 

They nibble and investigate bright colors! Your fins, cameras, and even bathing suits if you’re not wearing a neutral color are fair game, so be very careful with swimwear selections! 

One of our friends, Cathy, borrowed her brother’s GoPro and managed to get this video which shows just how playful and inquisitive they are! Here’s the video:
What I loved most about this year was all the great people I get to share these memories with. Who do you want to remember this year and all the years to come? Schedule a portrait session in the new year!

Long weekend in Vermont

I'm heading up to Vermont for a few days to meet up with some friends. We heard about the Green Mountain Adventure Challenge, and thought it would be a fun escape from our everyday lives for a bit!

So, we'll take a few days to hike around Vermont, finding clues and solving puzzles! Has anyone ever done anything like this before? Sounded like a unique experience to me!!

Business owner headshot - Glen Burnie, MD

This guy co-owns (with his wife) Wells Automotive since 1998. He used to be a meat cutter and worked with his brother-in-law for a while as a mechanic learning the trade and then, in 1998, he started Wells Automotive, and it now has a reputation as a very trustworthy family-owned business.

One of his daughters started working at the shop when she was 14 years old, and she now knows more than any of the guys working at the front desk because she's an experienced mechanic herself! Wells Automotive offers a 2-year nationwide warranty through Parts Plus and his techs are all certified! He's one of the nicest guys and anyone would be lucky to call him their friend!

Check out his Before/After images!
