5 Reasons to have your Family Photographs in Washington D.C.
In this week's Friday Fives, I'll discuss five reasons why having your family pictures taken in Washington D.C. is a wonderful idea. Living this close to Washington D.C. has its privileges; especially when it comes to taking family pictures.
Washington D.C. is such a beautiful place regardless of the time of year. When it's spring the Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom and make for a beautiful background for your family's spring portraits; and during Autumn, the foliage on the trees are amazing. If you're a part of the military community, having your family's portrait taken in Washington D.C. will also be a great way to remember you were stationed in the Washington D.C. area.
Congratulations are in order for Lieutenant Colonel Ono. He is one of the Air Force newest promotees. Yesterday morning, Major Ono and his family arrived at the National Archives Museum in Washington D.C. for his promotion ceremony and greeted their friends and guests.
What a beautiful family! The Defors gathered at The Special Event Entrance of The National Archives Museum in Washington D.C. for a Commander DeFor's Navy Promotion Ceremony. For many that live in and near the nation's capital know we're in the middle of a heat wave, because of this, we decided to take family portraits before the ceremony. Although we couldn't run from the humidity, we walked to the top of the stairs to avoid the sun and captured this beautiful family portrait.
It was a beautiful blue sky day at The National Archives Museum in Washington D.C. today. It was beautiful and ready for Navy Promotion ceremony. Lieutenant Dougherty and her family arrived at The National Archives with excitement for her promotion ceremony to meet and greet friends and family.
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.
Did somebody say food?!! Oh my goodness a location filled with different food trucks...i'm there. Yes Truckeroo is a summertime event in Washington D.C. There are several food trucks that come together have a monthly festival. Although i'm in Northern Virginia, attending the Truckeroo is such a short drive and well worth it.
Today, August 10, is the day for this month's festival. Let me tell you the top five reasons I like Truckeroo.

It's was a beautiful morning in Washington D.C. today at The National Archives Museum. Beautiful weather and a wonderful moment for family, friends and coworkers to travel to Washington D.C. to celebrate one of the nation's heroes and one of the Air Force's newest Lieutenant Colonels.
Congratulations to Lieutenant Colonel Wood! He is one of the Army's newest promotees. Major Wood arrived at The National Archives Museum with his family to greet his friends and guests who were in attendance for his ceremony. Military Ceremonies held at The Archives are special because of the documents held inside the Rotunda as well as being able to document the ceremony with photographs.
f you've visited the National Archives Museum in Washington D.C., you're aware that photography is not allowed within the museum. Therefore many military members and their families are excited to be able to document these memories with pictures.
Today, I had the honor of photographing Major Turner's promotion ceremony, an Army Officer, in the Rotunda of the National Archives Museum in Washington D.C. Major Turner was surrounded by her husband, Mom, siblings, and other family and friends. This promotion ceremony was extra special, because this was the first time her family (outside of her husband) was able to witness her promotion.
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.
