Congratulations to the Army's newest Colonel - Colonel Stephens. Col Stephens was promoted from Lieutenant Colonel to Colonel January 31, 2018 during a ceremony at Eisenhower Hall on Ft McNair in Washington D.C. Prior to the start of the ceremony, the Official party gathered to discuss any last minute changes with the narrator.
Preparing for Spring Portraits
Spring is one of the most wonderful seasons for many of us, especially if you live in Northern Virginia and Washington D.C.. The air is fresh, the flowers are blooming, people are happy…
Why Should You Take Time to Document Your Family?
Time goes by really fast and that’s why it’s extremely important to document everything (especially the important moments) to add to your family’s history. If you think about it, it goes by faster than we think. If you’re not currently photographing your children playing with their favorite toy or washing dishing, you should start now, and make it a habit. You may believe it’s not important, but you would be surprised at how your will feel looking back at those pictures later.
Have you scheduled your Cherry Blossom portrait appointment for 2018 in Washington DC? If not, this is a great opportunity to schedule your family portraits. Spring is a wonderful time to have your family photographed. It’s a lot warmer and the beautiful blossoms and the wonderful smells are everywhere.
If you haven’t scheduled your appointment, now is a great time. I will be giving one family who schedules with Tamieka Smith Photography for their Cherry Blossoms before January 21st of this year a complimentary 20 page, 10×10 Heirloom family – a $1500 value! In addition, two families will receive a $300 and $200 credit, respectively.
There is no limit on the number of pictures that may be included in the album, just remember the more pictures you place in the album, the more crowded the pages become. The winners may also upgrade from this album if so desired.
These albums are produced using archival inks and acid-free papers. Then handcrafted using a 1/4" thick moisture resistant, acid-free, warp-free boards and only the finest textile cover materials. These family heirloom albums are created to last for 200 plus years with less than 8% color fade.
We live in a world where almost everything is done with our computer, laptops, tablets, or smartphone. From booking tickets to making friendships, the digital medium is being preferred more and more.
But does that hold true for photographs, too? Well, thanks to Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and other various social media networks, people have the option to upload their photos onto their favorite social media platform and rely solely on them for friends and family to see and save these images.
Not that there is anything wrong with uploading your memories online, in fact, if nothing, it makes things so convenient! Especially if you’re a military family and you have family members living in other parts of the United States and sometimes in other places of the world, social media is rather convenient. You can now share your photos with people from all over the world and that is all great, but there are some drawbacks to this as well.
