Archive for 'Howard County Couple Photographer'
Emily and Morgan are such a fun couple! When they graciously donated their time to help me with my iphone session experiment I knew they were perfect for this. They are goofy, artsy and love to be different, which I adore about them. We met up at a park near my house one weekend morning and had some fun on the playground before exploring the wonderful grounds.E and M, thank you again for driving up to my neck of the woods and being patience with me as I learn to figure out my process.
Enjoy some of my favorites from Emily and Morgan’s art iphoneography session!

This past year as you know I completed a huge goal of mine, a 365 photo project using my iphone. I stuck through the Project Life 365 project along with so many other photographers and loved every second of it. Not only did my iphone process improve, but it reopened my fine art photography door again. I haven’t done any creative shooting since my days in art school at Towson, and I miss it every day. After my recent mentor session with Laura Winslow, one of the pieces of advice she told me that I need to be me and not worry about what other photographers are doing in my area and photograph and offer products that I BELIEVE IN because I have this unique view and art background with this passion to preserve the family portrait. She was right, I am different and was trying to hide that. I was trying to hide that artist within me. Not to say my shooting aesthetic was not me, it was more my online presence, packaging and even my editing was influenced from what was around me which had me just “fit in with the crowd”. I am unique and I’m not longer hiding that.
I spent months thinking about the words I wrote to describe myself and my business, and something clicked. I am not just a photographer, I am an artist. How I can offer something that fulfills the artist within me in my business? I was staring at my beautiful new blue iphone 5c my parents bought me for a birthday gift on my desk one late night, and it hit me! I can offer sessions with just my iphone! I can create a new type of session to clients who want something a little different, artistic and out of the box. I want to offer to my clients different ways to showcase their images as memories, and this is something that clients can still hang on their walls or showcase in a frame on a table, but as a work of art.
Starting today, I am offering a special collection for a new session to go with my new collections packages , “Iphoneography Art Session”! A non-traditional, artistic twist to modern portraiture. The file sizes will obviously be smaller than the DSLR I use, but with the package I offer a few products that will showcase a cell phone image beautifully.
Thanks to my models Anysia and Shane for being my muses for my first Iphoneography Art Session!
