Hello Friday! It’s hard to believe this is the last Friday of this month and the last Friday of the first half of 2018. I hope you are having a great week; as it has been a busy one for me. I went to Paris, France last week and since returning, I’ve been catching up on office work and sending out completed National Archives Promotion Ceremony galleries.
I decided to start a new Blog Series - Friday Fives!! On Fridays, I will be sharing five things that you may not have known about me, things that happened during the week, just something that I am excited about, or something I've experienced! This week, I’ll be discussing the top five things I loved about our family vacation to Paris.
It was a beautiful blue sky day in Washington D.C.; absolutely perfect weather for an Air Force promotion ceremony at the National Archives Museum. Major Miller and his family arrived to the National Archives and greeted their friends as well as introduce everyone to his Presiding Officer Brigadier General (BG) Hinote.
This epic 10x10 black leather flush mount album for a National Archives Museum Military Promotion Ceremony is amazing and really makes a statement.
Is that the Stanley Cup National Championship Bus driving down Constitution Ave in front of the National Archives? Why yes it is! Major Templeton and his family has selected a day to have his military promotion ceremony in Washington D.C., that's the same day as the celebration parade for the Washington Capitals. What a celebration! There are so many people walking the streets with banners, noise-makers, and anticipating the winners of the Stanley Cup and it's only 7:30 a.m.
Congratulations are in order for one of the Air Force newest Lieutenant Colonels (Lt Col). Major Berge arrived at The National Archives Museum in Washington D.C. with his family for his promotion ceremony. Thankfully, Major Berge's family was able to have a beautiful no rain day for his promotion ceremony. (It's been raining in the Northern Virginia and surrounding area for almost two weeks straight).
Prior to entering the museum, Major Berge's family took a few pictures on the steps of the Archives to post on Facebook to share with friends and family.
It’s Monday afternoon…the first Monday of June. Which means the kids in Northern Virginia are getting out of school and are ready for summer vacation. This is the time of the year when many families are looking for activities and places for our children to go during the day while we’re at work. I’m excited to share this post, because I was looking for fun activities for my children to do this summer as well as looking for a location for our summer vacation. Being a part of the military community, I know many of my readers will be able to assist and provide valuable information about the topics I will be sharing today.
Hello, I'm Tamieka, owner of Tamieka Smith Photography. I would love to help you plan your family's sunset portraits in Northern Virginia (or surrounding area) or photograph your military ceremony — possibly both. Working with families and military members is my specialty. I hope you'll look at my recent work and all that’s available for you. I hope we're able to work together and I’m able to document your family’s history.
