Fashion photography is clearly my favorite thing to do. At Harford Style Magazine, we decided to dedicate one issue each year to Brides and all things wedding related. Bridal and wedding images are so much fun since you can create very dreamy and romantic settings and it’s hard not to love a photo that features a gorgeous gown on a beautiful model.

I recently photographed a group of interior designers for their website and print advertising. They each wanted to choose their favorite fabric from their collections as their headshot background. Although it is not something I would typically do, they were thrilled with the mix of colors when the images were used together.
The image below was created for a health and wealth coach for her advertising and website use. This image was shot in my studio. We hoped to create a relaxed, casual image that she could use for a myriad of promotional materials.
Corporate headshots have become significantly more important since social media has become an everyday part of the business world. People need/want to put a face with a name when networking. A high quality headshot is a good investment and I try to make it quick and painless for busy professionals. If there are 8 or more people in your office that need headshots, I can come to you
Photographing gorgeous jewelry with a beautiful model for website and catalog images is a good day for a photographer. I was lucky enough to connect with String of Jewels and wonderful company run by a creative and sweet women named Traci Cormell. Website and catalog images.
I have been photographing a lot of bands for the new Rams Head Center Stage at Maryland Live Casino. Recently Bret Michaels from the band Poison played to a sold out crowd. It was a fun night and I think I shot some great images. Photography for bands. All images copyright Amy Jones.
I spent Sunday at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure shooting corporate event photography. Maryland Live Casino was a sponsor of the race and it was amazing to photograph the event for them. I couldn’t believe the amount of people that went from the starting gate to the horizon in this photo. What a great event!
This lovely young lady was a good enough sport to allow my makeup artist to do a “BEFORE” photo of her. I wanted to photograph her because I loved her long red hair and perfect pale skin with freckles. This is proof that my team can transform someone with our beauty photography and makeover sessions.
These shoots are great to do just as a treat to yourself or as a gift to a loved one. They can be as simple or dramatic as you want!

Photography for pageants is something I have been doing longer than I’d like to admit. I was lucky enough to work with Brittinay Nicolette who was recently crowned Miss Maryland Collegiate America. I have hired Brittinay in the past for modeling jobs but this was our first time shooting for a pageant. Congratulations Brittinay and good luck in August at the Nationals!!
Lighting is the most important things when it comes to beauty photography for models. A photographer has to learn to light in such a way that does not cause unflattering shadows on the model’s face. A beauty shot may look easy but it’s truly a situation where you can spot a novice photographer vs an experienced one. At this shoot, I worked with an amazing hair/makeup team which helps make a great photo amazing! Not everyone will like this crazy lighting but I love these images.
Thanks Gina Bateman, Sarah Jackson and the lovely Allyson from L&M Modeling and Talent.
