A Celebration of Military Service
Retirement is an important aspect of a military career. After serving at least 20 or more years, retirement can be exciting and cause nervousness at the same time. It can be a time to reflect and enjoy more time with family and friends, but it's also a time to plan for the future. The Army, Navy and Air Force are some of the most honorable organizations in the world and they do a lot of things right. One of these things is a retirement ceremony.

Beautiful Story Box
This beautiful Story Box will be a centerpiece in any room of your home you place it in. Tamieka Smith Photography offers two different types of Story Boxes. This Story Box has a built-in window frame to showcase your beautiful family portraits or military portraits inside.
This Story Box features a newly promoted Ft. Belvoir Army Colonel. It's no secret I'm a huge advocate for printing family pictures. With the heavy use of cell phones and cell phone pictures, many of us have let the printed portrait go by the wayside.
This Story Box is an easy way to showcase your portraits.
National Museum of the United States Army
Did you know there is a new venue in the Northern Virginia? The National Museum of the United States Army in Fort Belvoir is now open and available for service members to have their military promotion or retirement ceremony. This is great because The National Archives books out extremely fast and service members are consistently looking for alternative locations.
With this venue coming online, it is a great first choice for many military members, especially Army service members.
Black Leather Promotion Album - Stull
Having your promotion ceremonies at The National Archives Museum is an amazing venue but once you have your digital images, the next step is determining how you would like to remember those memories. A luxurious leather album is a great choice. This black leather album was designed for Colonel Stull and his family. The leather is soft to the touch and is exquisite.

Army Promotion Ceremony at The National Archives Museum
Promotion ceremonies at The National Archives Museum are fun and make for a memorable military ceremony. Many military members throughout Washington DC and across the nation desire to have their military event at the museum. Because of it's popularity, members have to request months in advance to secure the venue for their promotion or retirement ceremony. Therefore, I always get excited when veterans or their spouse call or message me to schedule photography for their ceremony.
A few months ago, Melissa contacting me to photograph her husband promotion ceremony at The Archives. They were excited about the promotion and having family in attendance to witness the ceremony and wanted to have beautiful portraits of the day.
