Annapolis Photo Booth | The Light House

At my last fundraiser for CF, we were approached by Alex from The Light House, Homeless Prevention Support Center.  He explained the amazing stuff the center does to help people get back on their feet.  

He asked to have a Photo Booth at their graduation for their students in the program.   This is a great event for them because of their change in direction of life.


What a great event and amazing people.

Severna Park High School Graduation | 2013

This year Severna Park Seniors had the pleasure to graduate from the newly built arena at Towson University.  This year was the first year I actually felt like a part of me was graduating and moving on to bigger better things.  I am really proud of this class, specially the ones who I had a part of molding!  

Thanks guys for making another school year great!



High School Graduation - Severna Park High School - Towson University

Every year since I have started at Severna Park High School, I have been a part of the graduation at Towson University.  One because we are required as teachers to attend and help but they usually give the teachers a role of being at the end of a row seated with the students.  Some other teachers have different duties, so I asked if I could help out and shoot and give the photos to the school website and yearbook.  This was my second graduation and I really love it because all of the students are so happy to be done school and they are a lot of fun 

So I spend the morning winding the halls taking pictures of the students together getting ready and talking about their plans for the future.  I also catch the occasional teacher helping student who doesn't know how to tie a tie! (See below, haha)  These are the great memories that stand out in my mind.  Later I shoot the students entering and listening to all of the speeches.  Being valedictorian in our school does not come easy and it a huge race for many students.  It is not uncommon for our valedictorian to have at least a 4.85 GPA!!!   I do not focus on the students receiving their diplomas because another photography service owns that time and place on the stage.  I get a few just for capturing the moment for the school.  

After the event, families gather outside to take pictures and I usually get the "hey can you take this?"  I shoot it with my camera but am nice enough to shoot it with theirs as well.  I do get a few who buy my prints instead of just keeping theirs.  Thank You!  Lastly, every year I have the family, "wheres the memory card? Wheres the battery? YOU DIDNT BRING THE CAMERA!?!? &*#&^@!!!!"  Thats were I come in camera in hand with a smile on my face!
