While the photographer’s away, the artist will play!  And paint!  And show her beautiful work!  I’ve invited Annapolis artist Kim Hovell, best known for her beautiful Chesapeake Bay oysters, to take over the studio from March 14 – 21.  During the week that she calls the studio home, Kim will debut an exhibition entitled “Salt Work” which will include original paintings and prints of oysters, as well as new works featuring shark’s teeth and abstract scenes.

On Thursday, March 19th, at 6pm, Kim will be hosting an artist’s reception in conjunction with Maryland Avenue’s “Maryland, Oh Maryland” special event day to kick off Maryland Day festivities.

We hope to see you!


Yes.  I mean YES!  It was THAT much fun.  Oldest, Middle, & Youngest (how they are most often referred) came into the studio for a shoot for YEC magazine and while I anticipated having a few laughs with them, I had NO idea what I was really in for.  There was apple throwing.  There was dropping of the occasional  frequent f-bomb.  There were lots of sparkling teeth.  Like tv toothpaste commercial sparkling.  Collectively, the biggest personalities that have come through my door, and I loved every minute of working with them.  Commercial and editorial jobs like this one are especially fun when I LOVE the product, as I do in this case.  I swear I remember the first day they were in Whole Foods – taste-tasting and dropping bottles of Tessamae’s into the carts of shoppers who couldn’t say no to those smiles, or the fact that it was the best dressing they had ever tasted.  We have at least a half dozen bottles in our fridge at any given time, and I’m waiting for the next flavor (yeah, I’m talking to you Youngest).  Thanks to YEC for trusting me to bring these guys to life on your cover!

While I am 100% a Terp at heart, I was over the moon about being on the sidelines and photographing the Penn State Football home opener this past fall.  Thrilled for Coach Franklin’s winning first season, with many more images to come, but wanted to kick off a Friday with this one because it’s how I’m feeling about not having anything on my calendar tomorrow, except for spending the day in my jammies with my family!  Coach Spence gettin’ some air!

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be teaming up with Nicole and Jo for another “Headshot Day” as we affectionately call it here in the studio.  While we offer headshots to both men and women on a regular and on-going basis, this is a unique and special opportunity.  Prior to being photographed, our professional hair and make-up team, along with a stylist, will ensure that you are camera ready (and then some)!  A few comments from previous clients -

“Wow, wow, wow – not only did I look great, I FELT like a different person.  My picture looks like the true professional I feel I am”

“Heather, you and your team transformed me inside and out – what a pleasure today was”

“Look-out Linkedin – I hope you’re ready for this picture!”

We’d love to help you convey who you are to your audience – a few spots remain – contact the studio ASAP for more details and to secure your time on our schedule.
