Ava is One

Today I shot Ava’s one year old portrait. She is such a cutie and has such beautiful hair! Like any one year old, she was constantly on the move, but I managed to catch a few great shots. Here’s her slideshow too.

Jodi and Michael





Last Sunday I had the opportunity to shoot an engagement session with Jodi and Michael. This was especially fun as back in my days on the Hill, Jodi was a lobbyist who I worked with often on hearing health issues. It’s always nice when paths cross again with old friends. We had gorgeous weather for the shoot, can you believe that sky?! Congratulations again on your engagement, Jodi and Michael, I look forward to your wedding next May! And here’s a link to their slideshow.

9-11 Five years later…



There’s a hill near my house that overlooks the Pentagon and DC across 395. On September 11, 2001, when I finally came home that afternoon, I went over to the hill to see the Pentagon. Many people were gathered there. Tonight, even at 11:30pm, there were a few people gathered on the hill to see the tribute in lights to those who died in the Pentagon 5 years ago. Being so close, I will never forget what I saw that day.
