There was lots to celebrate in this family. The graduation from Marymount University for the oldest sister as well as the promotions to Middle and High Schools, respectively, for the younger two. Three graduates and no (official) celebrations for this Class of 2020 does not diminish their accomplishments. Congrats all around and especially on a […]

Every year I photograph a number of wonderful local High School Seniors from Fairfax and Arlington County schools. In the photos below you get to meet many of them, classes of 2019 and 2020.
