I had a fantastic afternoon photographing Alyssa Herman. She is the daughter of Scott and Carolyn Herman who are two prominent music educators in Maryland. I have had the joy of photographing Alyssa her entire life, having witnessed her transformation from being a beautiful baby to the stunning young women she is today. Alyssa is a wonderfully articulate and mature young lady with many talents. Just a few years ago she came over to do a ballet shoot. Now as a rising junior at Thomas Wootton High School, Alyssa is contemplating a career in the performing arts as a singer or actress. Alyssa is a member of the Wootton band program and is very active in the Wootton Theater Department. She is also a member of the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestras and was selected to play in the the Maryland All-State Band.
