Luxurious Story Box
Every time a client orders a Story Box I get really excited for them; because I know they are going to fall head over heals when they receive this luxurious box full of family portraits. The story boxes are beautifully designed wooden box with a luxurious soft touch material on the interior with chrome hinges. The quality of the build is phenomenal. When I received this Story Box I was excited and can't wait for Major Day and his wife to receive this beautiful box.
Air Force Promotion Ceremony at National Archives - Day
It was a beautiful day in Washington D.C. for an Air Force promotion ceremony at The National Archives; even the little ducklings thought so. They came out for a walk with their Mom. They wanted to stroll the streets of D.C. so much, Mom wanted to walk them down Constitution Avenue. Of course, we walked out in traffic to help protect them. All of this happened before Captain Day arrived for his promotion ceremony.
Fun Summer Activities for Kids
It's a new month and if you're like me, you're on the prowl for things to do with your children during the summer months. I've been looking for several different activities as my boys don't enjoy the same activities. This list will definitely help to avoid hearing the dreaded "I'm bored" statement from your children this year.
Here's list of summer activity possibilities for families in both Northern Virginia and Los Angeles.
Beach Family Portraits at Leesylvania State Park
Family photographers like to plan everything in advance (day/time/location/etc.) when it comes to family pictures to ensure we have an idea of what our clients want. However, I like to leave a little wiggle room in my schedule just in case there is a last minute emergency or a need for a last minute change for family's portrait session.
A few Saturday evenings ago, I was contacted about my availability for a last minute beach session. Unfortunately, the family had to make last minute photographer arrangement and contacted me to have their family pictures taken. They selected Leesylvania State Park in Woodbridge as their location for portraits. As you can see from the portraits the location is amazing for cool and unique portraits.
Especially in the Washington D.C. area, there is limited beach access, so this location is perfect for the fun summer family beach pictures. From the pictures below, you can see how amazing the location is and the beauty of this amazing family.
