Washington, DC – Jefferson Memorial – Ode to my Father

One of the earliest lessons my father taught me was to always honor your commitments.  Integrity is one of my dad’s greatest virtues and it guides him in all aspects of his life.  With my dad, if he’s committed to doing something, he ALWAYS follows through.  He is simply a man of his word.     (more…)

wed-1-img_1358-finalThis photo shoot continues our tour of the Petersburg National Battlefield.  This time we took pictures in an area where a handful of men from the Union army clandestinely dug a mine that reached the Confederate lines.  Once under the Confederate position, the mine was filled with explosives and detonated!  The explosion caused the Earth to tremble propelling Confederate men and artillery into the air and creating a huge crater that was at least 30 feet deep and approximately 120 feet wide!  (more…)

Sometimes, life’s wonderful moments happen unexpectedly.  About a month or so ago, my friend, Bill, surprised me.  He said he would be in my area attending his older brother’s pinning ceremony for promotion to Colonel in the United States Air Force!  I was so happy for Bill and his family because many years before, their father had a similar pinning ceremony when he was promoted to Colonel.  Their military service had come full circle and I can only imagine the pride and joy beaming from their hearts as Stephen was pinned.

Visiting Civil War battlefields is a pastime my dad and I share.  So, anytime we can combine a visit with a photo shoot makes for a lively afternoon.  This shoot took place at the Petersburg National Battlefield.  It was here approximately 152 years ago that Union General Ulysses S. Grant lay siege to Petersburg in a successful attempt to destroy Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s army.  General Grant understood that devastating the Confederate’s main supply line at Petersburg would eventually secure the fall of Richmond, the Confederate capital.  (more…)

I have to admit, I’ve lived in Southern Maryland for many years now and this was my first time in Solomons Island.  It is a quaint town on the Patuxent River/Chesapeake Bay.  Very picturesque.  It is a perfect destination for a weekend getaway and/or a photo shoot.  🙂 (more…)

This was the second photo shoot taken at Sideling Hill Road Cut (aka The Cut) in Western Maryland.  After the photo shoot, an older woman struck up a conversation with Dad and me.  She told us her family is local to the area and that her great, great, great grandfather was part of the construction crew that blasted through the mountains.  “Great, great, great grandfather”, I asked?  “Yes,” said the woman, “great, great, great grandfather.”  Well, he must have been one fit old man considering construction occurred in the early 1980s!  😉  (more…)

I am slow as molasses when it comes to getting ready.  Last August, during my trip to San Diego, my Forever BFF, Tammy, was so bewildered at the length of time it took me to get ready that she woke up early just to observe my morning ritual!  This time around, she woke up 30 minutes before we had to leave for our Savannah tour.  (more…)
