With a long lens and my mask on, I recently had a studio headshot session for actor John Wontrop. He tends to do a lot of “bad guy” roles and wanted a few shots that were more serious and expressive. So we set about to give him a mix of friendly commercial images as well as a character “tough guy.”
“I am letting you know that I have received all five sets of photos you sent. They look absolutely fantastic. I am 110% satisfied with the final results. Thank you for all of your work and providing an easy and hassle free process (global pandemics aside…). You will definitely be getting an email from me the next time I need headshots.” John Wontrop
Commercial photography for website and personal branding use.
A lot of my shoots are done for commercial use, creating images that help sell a client’s service or product through their websites and social media marketing platforms. Whether you are building your own site or working with a PR firm/advertising agency, it’s important to have unique, high quality images and if at all possible, avoid using bland stock photos. Contact me if you need marketing images for your product or service. Studio or location.
Entrepreneur Lisa Roulette recently designed her new website and I was lucky enough to work with her on this project. She wanted simple, eye catching images. We created a group of business portraits for marketing and website use.
“Amy is wonderful. She is not only exceptionally talented by trade but she makes the shoot experience easy and incredibly comfortable. I am camera shy and not confident when posing or looking into the lens but with Amy’s direction and guidance we always get amazing shots that make me look like a natural. I would highly recommend working with Amy.” Lisa Roulette
I have been commissioned by banks and other businesses to do landscape fine art photographs for use in their offices or stores. Clients and customers enjoy seeing images of places they pass everyday hanging on the walls.
Just a few of my favorites done in places like Ocean City Maryland and Colorado.
Photography for bridal jewelry can be challenging. Of course, you want the images to look romantic and dreamy but at the same time a potential customer has to be able to see the details of the piece. These are just a few images from a recent shoot. The designer sells belts, headpieces, earrings and necklaces.
I recently did a headshot session for a former model turned movie producer. I convinced him to let me shoot it square and we agreed on black and white. We also did a secondary image to be used for his IMDB page.
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
