On May 30, Susan and Randy had the privilege of photographing the 2nd annual Jill's House "A Celebration of Special Children" at the Ritz-Carlton at Tyson's Corner, VA. Jill's House provides respite for families with special needs children and an unbelieveable experience for those children as they say over for one or two nights.  For more information, go to their website.

Here are a few of our photos from the evening that featured receptions, dinner, a concert by Martina McBride, the McLean Bible Church orchestra and choir, a video that made everyone in the room shed tears, parents of two children who go to Jill's House and much more!

The McLean Bible Church Orchestra and choir.  This last photo shows that Susan not only photographed the event, but was able to jump into the choir for a few minutes as well!  She can do it all!

Alison Starling and Leon Harris of ABC-7 News did a fabulous job as the emcees.

Cameron Doolittle is the President and CEO of Jill's House.

Catherine (pictured) & Wayne Reynolds (The Catherine B. Reyolds Foundation) underwrote the event.

Dr. John J. Hamre, President and CEO of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, presents the Light of Hope Award to Phebe N. Novakovic, Chairman and CEO of General Dynamics.

Lon Solomon, pastor of McLean Bible Church and co-founder of Jill's House spoke at the end of the evening.

Brenda Solomon, co-founder of Jill's House spoke and then introduced Matt and Shannon McNeil.

The food, of course, was spectacular!  Alison Starling and Catherine Reynolds were sharing something on their phones!

Susan and Randy support Jill's House throughout the year by doing photography for them at events and with the children in Jill's House itself.
