Sessions at the Lake

I’ve photographed everything from a perfectly prepared apple pie to a mama giving birth in a hospital. But the core of my portrait session experience best lies with people in love – couples and families. The “lifestyle” approach is used for all sessions where interactions are encouraged, emotions are captured and subjects are left to display their natural, beautiful selves…and hopefully feel relaxed, laugh a little and have fun with their loved ones!

On-location, natural-light photography is my specialty so we’ll meet in an outdoor space to take pictures. Local parks, your backyard, a quaint downtown area, Deep Creek Lake…all are wonderful location options just steps outside our doors! If we’ve met before and you’re up for visiting me on my six acres of open grass and friendly woods in Garrett County, MD, “In My Backyard” sessions are an option, too!

Sessions are also available for vacationing families at the lake (and actually, these have become a favorite for me 🙂 ). No matter the size of your group, we can fit everyone in! I’ve photographed groups as large as 26 and even sat them all in a boat, while docked, for an extra special anniversary family photo.

If you’re the adventurous type and want to try something different, visit my Adventures of JFP page for inspiration and ideas.

Thank you so much for capturing our memories. We did this family reunion as a tribute to our father who passed away about a year ago and thanks to you we have some awesome pictures to remember all the fun we had together. Thanks again so much, it was wonderful meeting and working with you.
