Heels & Helmets - September 12, 2013

My dear friend, Suzanne Walker, recently asked me to photograph an event that her law firm, Kilpatrick Townsend, was hosting. The event, Kilpatrick Townsend Training Camp, was “coached” by Shavannia Williams, President and Editor of Heels & Helmets and her team of former college and NFL players.  Heels and Helmets is a program designed by Shavannia that levels the playing field in professional environments by educating women about various sports.

There is no denying that many business deals are made on the golf course or in the boardroom while discussing Fantasy Football drafts.  The attendees at the Kilpatrick Townsend Training Camp all left with a better understanding of football and the common football terms used in business, like what it means to be 3rd and long.  It was a great presentation and I am not someone who claims to know anything about football. I know a few more things now.

After class, and it was definitely a class, everyone went upstairs to the conference room for a tailgate party catered by Occasions. Now that is the part of the game that I completely understand.

Kathrin & Doug - August 31, 2013

Kathrin and Doug got married this Labor Day weekend in Old Town, Alexandria and had the most charming and relaxed wedding.   My second shooter, Matt Splain, and I started at the Hotel Monaco where the couple had their first look.  Then we walked down the cobblestone streets to a park on the water where the ceremony was held with just their immediate families.  After a few quick portraits we walked to the Union Street Public House where the reception was held.

Thanks, as always, to Sara Franklin for referring this job and for doing her usual stellar job of pulling everything together.
