Today, I'm sharing my family Quarantine Bingo card and by quarantine bucket dream list.

What to do with kids during Coronavirus?
The kids around California and Northern Virginia are out of school; now what? If you’re like myself and most parents, you’re looking for activities for your children to get engaged in that can be done safely inside the home. Especially since the state of California is now in full self quarantine mode.
Here are a few recommendations:
1. Play a board game.
Whether is a traditional board game or a game on an electronic device, it can be a mind shifter. Do you have a favorite game? I love playing Scrabble on my phone. It keeps the score and we just pass the cell phone around to each other.
Our Community Comes First - COVID-19
Dear TSP Readers,
As you know, COVID-19 is affecting our daily lives and community. Just moments ago, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommended that events with over 50 people either be cancelled or postponed (for the next eight weeks).
I know this time may be difficult for you and your family. I want you to know that I am here to fully support you. Here is what that support looks like:
If you need to postpone your event or portrait session, please email me with the new date and time. I will transfer your event/session date for you if I have the date available on my calendar. I’m happy to transfer all payments to your event/session date within one calendar year.
If the unthinkable happens and you end up having to cancel your date, unfortunately, there are no refunds. However, email me and let’s work together to make the most of this situation. I don't want either of us to be left empty-handed.

Family pictures tell stories; the story of our family. Yes, words do the same, but pictures capture important moments along with the emotions being – for the lack of better words – emoted. In the age of smartphones, everybody takes pictures of the smallest moments. This includes food. Let’s think about it, you care what food you ate at 15 years ago? I know I won’t. However, the way your child smiles will be something you will always want to remember. Especially when they have teeth missing.
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.

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.
