CLICK HERE TO VIEW.ORDER PHOTOSIsn't it great when you can do your favorite hobby AND raise money for your favorite cause?  Well that is what the 11th Anniversary Ride for Jill's House is for us and for hundreds of motorcycle riders when we participate in this ride.  It started in Manassas at the Prince William campus of McLean Bible Church, went to Aldie and then to the MBC Tysons campus. All the fun was to raise funds to empower kids with intellectual disabilities.  Randy and I have had the privilege to photograph most of the eleven rides - we just love the cause and the event!  Starting with a Chick-Fil-A breakfast (who doesn’t love ...

2019 Jill's House Ride

Many blog posts are telling you about our latest photo session or event coverage.  We enjoy all the photography that we do but sometimes, it is a little more personal. How many sets of triplets do you know?  How many live in your neighborhood?  How about on your street?  Randy and I have three wonderful triplets in our neighborhood that are now high school seniors!  So we were able to find a few images from past shoots to share.  We didn't include baby photos because they are on film and frankly, it would take forever to find them - ha!Watching these babies grow into adulthood has been an adventure.  I won't bore you with stories but they have enjoyed ...

2019 Jill's House Ride

What answer do you give to the daily question “WHAT ARE YOU DOING TODAY?”  Sometimes it is as response with a list of errands or appointments.  Sometimes it is a pause to think about how to prioritize what to do.  Sometimes it is a decision to take a break, go for a latte with a friend, stroll through the mall and maybe find a concert to enjoy.For the families with children at Jill’s House, those sometime answers are rare.  They don’t have a choice of what they will be doing.  Their answer to that daily question is always the same - I am doing whatever it takes to make sure that my child is cared for and protected as best I can.Going to ...

2019 Jill's House Ride

What were you doing on Saturday?  Did you hear any thunder?  Well, if you had been with us in Manassas at the Prince William campus of McLean Bible Church, you definitely would have heard it!  So many bikes - the motorcycle kind - joined to raise funds to support special needs children.  Randy and I have had the privilege to photograph most of the ten rides - we just love the cause and the event!  Starting with a Chick-Fil-A breakfast (who doesn’t love Chick-Fil-A?), raffle tickets, lots of camaraderie and vests with patches and did I mention LOTS of bikes to check out -  it is just the epitome of FUN!A huge thank you to all the sponsors and the riders, ...

2019 Jill's House Ride

Sometimes special people come across your path that just put a smile on your face. They are fun, caring and downright charismatic. They are widely known in their school because of the way they view others and touch people’s lives. One such person that we have been privileged to meet and photograph is Brady.Our lives intersected a few years ago when his mom, Brenda, was a speaker at a Jill’s House special event. She so eloquently shared about her life with Brady, her son with special needs. As the photographers for Jill’s House, we were blessed to meet Brenda and hear her story. As parents of typical children, it is difficult to imagine the everyday mountains special needs ...
