Hey there! It’s been a few weeks since my last post, sorry for the delay! July has been a busy month.
A few weeks back I took a long weekend and visited my dear friend Lindsay. Lindsay and her VERY soon to be husband Alper live in Rehoboth Beach, DE. These two entrepreneurs recently acquired Archie’s Ice Cream, a long time favorite among beach goers in Rehoboth. Lindsay runs the establishment, she got a crash course in homemade ice cream making over the winter to prepare for this new venture. Naturally I had to photograph her at work while I was in town. I visited with my camera on a sunny Monday morning, the big seller that day was the homemade lemonade and orangeade. Here is what I came away with…
What’s your favorite flavor? Mine was the strawberry- it was the best I’ve ever had!
Back in October Erika Nizborski Photography participated in the DC Toasted Wedding Event at Eastern Market. I had put a complimentary Engagement Photo Session in the raffle and Danielle and Jakub won! This couple was a pleasure to work with and I am so happy that they won. Danielle lives and works in DC while Jakub is busy running his business in Portland Oregon. The two have been long distance for a while and they are finally tying the knot this fall in New York State. I met up with them a few weeks ago while Jakub was in town visiting. We took a stroll around the Georgetown C&O Canal and the waterfront. It called for rain that day but the sun stayed out just for us! Here are the highlights-
Diane and Charlie had their engagement session in Lincoln Park on Capitol Hill. This was a gorgeous late spring evening, we really couldn’t have asked for a better sunset! The couple wanted to have their session here because they are both history buffs- see the unique statue of Lincoln, and this lovely DC park is just bursting with character and charm. Diane and Charlie are both very active cyclists- so of course we had to add in some subtle hints to the photos, see the HOTSAUCE and Cross Hairs caps. This shoot was a ton of fun, I can’t wait for this couples fall 2015 wedding!
If you were going to have engagement photos taken in DC what neighborhood would you pick?
WOW 2014 was spectacular! This past year I had the privilege to work on 152 photoshoots. Ranging from engagements, weddings, babies, parties, corporate events, political lobby days, cycling, trade shows, high end productions, television production, a magazine cover, product shoots, architectural, and portraits. I worked as a photographer, stylist, production assistant, lighting technician, and in one case a makeup artist.
In 2014 I not only grew my business but I also took on the role as Director of the DC Chapter of American Photographic Artists. In the spring I launched a new line of custom photo products, which are available to all of my clients. In the gallery scene, I won best in show at the DC Exposed 2014 show at LongView Gallery in March. In the month of September my photo collective, SliverCore Photographers had a group show at Gallery 1301 in Baltimore . Then, I ended the year strong with my Hyattsville Project up on the walls at Green Owl Design.
I could’t be more grateful for the opportunity to participate in all of these things and to be able to live my dream each and every day! Thank you for all of you that make it possible for me.
Here are some photo highlights of my year…
I hope you all have a safe and happy new year! I can’t wait to take on 2015.
Hello and Welcome to my *NEW* Blog! As we close in on end of the year many of us have goals and resolutions for 2015. Myself included. This new blog is a labor of love! After starting several other photo blogs that have came and went I decided to re-vamp and improve my blogging look and technique! I will be using this platform to connect with you, my readers! This is where I will be constantly sharing what I am up to and the fun projects and events I’m photographing. Enjoy, and please stop back here often. 🙂
