Almost weekly, I drive to the National Archives Museum in Washington D.C. to photograph a military ceremony. It’s always an honor when military families trust me to photograph their treasured memories of having their ceremony in front of the United States Constitution.
However, once the ceremony is over, now it’s time for the member and their family to decide how they would like to display their memories. There are several options to choose from; album, framed portrait, canvas, and more. Today, I’ll be highlighting the beauty of a framed portrait. Frames from Tamieka Smith Photography really are stunning and museum quality.
As a military member serving in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, there are so many beautiful locations/venues for a military ceremony. In addition, it’s easy to forget these great memories that will be photographed and captured during your promotion or retirement ceremony; especially when the pictures are locked away on your laptop, smartphone or social media.
“I just want the digital files” …that’s an email I recently received. Unfortunately, many photographers here these words more often than we care to admit. However, printing your military ceremony pictures and hanging them in your home, you’ll be able to see, enjoy, and remember them every day.
Have you been searching for a Northern Virginia Photographer that offers the finest quality prints and art products available to preserve your family’s history? Are you looking for a photographer that can transform your digital (pictures) images into works of art? Have you hired a photographer previously with every intention of transforming your family’s pictures into a canvas or an album, but somehow haven’t had the time? Me too… We all get busy and have every intention of creating that beautiful piece of art we love. With my own experience, I’ve learned we all need a little help and guidance. Would you love for your family photographer to take the reins of creating what you love and design and deliver your wonderful family album and/or frame and hang my recent family portrait.
If you’re like me and want to have someone who will take on the hard work of photographing your family, creating an heirloom family album, or hanging your family most recent framed portrait; I’m your family photographer. Continue reading below and you’ll learn more about the archival prints and finished work that’s available to preserve your family’s legacy.
Regardless of your political beliefs or political party, a valuable statement was made yesterday by Senator Chuck Schumer. "That's when I learned though that nothing's official until there's a photo of it", and he present Mr. Trump with two wall portrait size portrait of him during the inauguration.
As a photographer, I hear on a continual basis, "I just want the digital(s)". I understand we live in a digital age, but in the wise words of the Senator, make sure you make your event or portrait session official be having it printed and framed.
