I love doing OpLove sessions. It’s a great way to meet and give back to the men and women who serve our country and the families who love and support them. Not too long ago, I meet Laura and her son Nicholas at Fort Meade for some photographs. Laura wanted to have some photos with military items in the background so I suggested checking out the Fort George G. Meade Museum on the Ft. Meade base. If you haven’t been, check it out. It’s a cool little museum with tanks and even a helicopter! Great place to take the little ones to explore. There’s also a beautiful lake on base filled with fish, ducks, and the many many geese (very scary hissing geese!)…
Laura’s husband is a pilot in the National Guard and is currently deployed. The photos from our OpLove session will be printed in an album and sent directly to him! I also like to send a care package with the album full of snacks and goodies. It’s a nice little surprise in the mail for our service men/women who are fighting for our freedom and who are so far from their families and friends.
Here’s a sneak peek at some photos from our session!

I had another fun shoot with little Jasmine over the weekend. This time, we tried some urban style photos in Baltimore. It was so windy and Jasmine’s hair went naturally wild!
My sister, Phuong, came along to shadow me. This was her first shoot and I think her images turned out great! See for yourself!
Go class of 2009! Can you believe high school is almost over? Don’t fret, it’s not too late for senior portraits!
I never liked the traditional cap and gown senior portraits. That’s why when given the opportunity to photograph Melissa and Deanna, I wanted to give them something fresh, fun, and funky. I wanted to capture images that showcased their silly personalities and hip & modern style. Thank-you ladies for a fun and interesting afternoon in Old Ellicott City!
