Today in the Nation's Capital, the sky was a beautiful blue with a crisp in the air. Awaiting the arrival of Air Force Captain Ryan and his family to arrive at The National Archives for his promotion ceremony to Major, it was a great opportunity to photograph the wonderful scene.
Upon arrival, Captain Ryan and his family took the time to catch up and share a few laughs.
I'm loving this beautiful 10x10 black leather military event album that was designed from Colonel Stephens promotion ceremony. This is an extremely luxurious album that will stand the test of time.
Spring time is on the horizon and that means many parents are looking and hoping to have their child(ren) photographed with the animals that are synonymous with spring…baby chicks and bunnies. Or the number one question asked in many Northern Virginia Mom groups is “will you have real live bunnies at your spring mini sessions?” When the answer is “no” many are upset and then there’s a big exasperation. I just saw one a few hours ago and the post was quickly deleted.
After conducting several portrait sessions over a few decades with live bunnies and rabbits, a photographer in Georgia experienced a barrage of complaints and even death threats because of the way the children handled baby chicks and bunnies during their sessions. This is what brings me to this blog post. I would like to detail the top 8 reasons why I don’t offer portrait sessions with bunnies, chicks, and other fury “spring” animals.
I'm thrilled to write and share this post because it was interested thinking about some of the cool things i've experienced. For example, I was married by the age of 18...who doesn't that; I did. Strange, I know. But I knew my husband was the one for me as soon as I saw him.
I know i'm an interesting lady and many people love me because of it. I can never fit into one category of “woman”. I love to watch sports, cook/bake, travel, take long drives, and so much more. As a matter of fact I grew up watching basketball games on television with my dad. I even had a opportunity to meet Shaq's Dad in Miami. I still enjoy watching baseball, football, and basketball. I'll definitely be going to a Washington Nationals Baseball game this season.
Hello Internet!! Here is my little introduction to me with:
Flexibility is key in the military. When you've devised a fail save plan...it can turn out it's not so fail save. Captain Sawyer contacted me to determine my availability to photograph her Air Force promotion ceremony at the Mount Vernon Estate. We discussed how beautiful the venue would be and how she would be able to have some beautiful memories...as Mount Vernon Estate is a premier venue in Northern Virginia.
However, if you live in the Northern Virginia, Washington DC, or Maryland area, you're well area that we've experienced a significant windstorm this weekend. Unfortunately, the winds forced the closing of the estate, but they were still able to accommodate the reception at the Inn. Once again because of the significantly strong winds, the electricity went out at the Inn. This forced Captain Sawyer to locate an alternative location for her promotion ceremony and reception. Thankfully, she was able to secure another location...Eggspectation. Captain Sawyer's guests arrived during Happy Hour and it was a wonderful opportunity to discuss the strong winds and how everything had to be changed because of the intensity of those winds.
Congratulations to one of the Air Force's newest Lieutenant Colonel (Lt Col) - Lt Col Chandler. He was joined by several friends, family, and co-workers to witness his promotion in one of the most beautiful places the National Archives Museum in Washington D.C. Major Chandler and his guests gather outside the museum awaiting the doors to open. It was a great opportunity for them to catch up on great times and share a few laughs.
Double celebrations are the best. Captain Wong and his beautiful wife were both in a celebratory mood as yesterday was a big day for both of the collectively as well as individually. Yesterday was Captain Wong's ceremony date for promotion to Major and it was also his wife's birthday day.
Yesterday was one of the most recent warm and beautiful days in the Nation's capital. It's beginning to feel like spring.
