This year I decided to attend the Inauguration. 4 years ago I remember I was only 3 miles away from the Inauguration, but I decided to go to the gym instead. What was I thinking? Besides the fact that I dislike tourists — especially on days like the Inauguration. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen so many people together in one place. Also, an added perk of not having a ticket was the fact that I got to see Anderson Cooper. 🙂
Below are a couple of snapshots from the morning.
Last September, Nick and I were asked to photograph a private reception at the home of Senator Mary Landrieu in honor of Angels In Adoption award recipients. The reception took place before the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute’s (CCAI) Angels In Adoption Gala, where Katherine Heigl, Josh Kelley and Ne-Yo were honored as National Angels In Adoption.

Nick and I volunteered to photograph the Casting 4 Recovery 2Fly4Hope event this past Sunday at Rose River Farm down in Syria, VA. The 2Fly4Hope Challenge had 12 teams of 2 anglers each. It was a 2-fly tournament, meaning each angler only got 2 flies for the entire day. One of the flies had to incorporate the color pink (for breast cancer awareness). The weather was phenomenal. The turn out and sponsorship was great. The fishing action was steady. Not surprisingly, the people we met were even better than the fishing. Mollie, Kiki, Rose River Farm and the team really put on a fantastic event. We felt fortunate to be a part of such a meaningful cause.

I had the honor of taking photos today at a full military honors funeral at Arlington Cemetery. I have been to Arlington Cemetery several times over the years, but this was a complete humbling experience. As we celebrated a life, I looked around to see all the other men and women who have given their lives for our freedom. Some graves dating back to 1867. I began to wonder what stories were to be told. The sacrifices. The journey. The honor. The legacy.
It was an incredible moment and made me completely thankful for all the men and women who continue to serve this great Nation.
