Magdelena Brunch in Baltimore

Hey Baltimore, are you free this Sunday?!?!  Having Brunch this Sunday at Magdalena Restaurant at The Ivy Hotel is now your obligation.  I went with the girls and for days it was all we could talk about.  We all plan to revisit and to take a new person to try the place!  From start to finish the Brunch was absolutely amazing!

Magdalena Restaurant at The Ivy Hotel is Maryland’s only Relais & Chateaux property, which recently launched brunch service for the first time ever. Brunch in style after hitting snooze, as Magdalena welcomes brunch-goers on Sundays from 11:00am -1:30pm with a prixe fixe menu that includes three items for the table to share, both hot and cold non-alcoholic beverages (coffee, tea, juice, etc.) along with your choice of a delectable entree (so much amazing food for only $39/person!).

Think glazed Maryland crab omelet with Piquillo peppers and toasted brioche; 70% dark chocolate waffle with marinated strawberries and spiced maple syrup; local goats cheese and caramelized onion quiche, and more!

Faces at Afram - Baltimore's Biggest African American Festival

I was super excited to attend AFRAM this year in Dru Hill Park.  I was most excited about having the opportunity to redesign the logo this year for their rebranding!  But I’ll talk about that on another post.  I wanted to share some of the photos that I took this year at AFRAM for their social media.

This summer I purchased a new Sony Alpha camera.  I’m so used to my Nikon and Canon cameras but I have fell completely in love with this camera.  It’s light, easy to use (even though I’m still learning) and I love the quality of images I take with it.  Dare I say it but I don’t think I can ever go back to Nikon or Canon.

I took my 85mm lens with me to AFRAM because I was mostly interested in capturing FACES at AFRAM.  Taking on the fly portraits of people in Baltimore having a great time.  And I think I was able to accomplish this.

I’m still trying to master action shots but again that’s another post for another day.  Thinking about doing a sports shoot soon!  But I hope you like them!
