Senior Prom!! – New Jersey Portrait and Event Photography

Senior Prom!!! Courtney and Benji stepped out in true style looking radiant in hot pink. Looking that good, their evening was bound to be epic!
Her father Greg, the good sport that he is, donned his eldest daughter in glitter dust (yes, he even used the feather duster!), jewels, and fastened her silver-strapped heels beneath the many layers of her beautiful fit-for-a-princess dress. He even smiled playfully as he held up his watch when Benji showed up…on time!
There was well over 20 people there to help with the preparations and see the couple off for an evening of dancing, fun with friends, and memories.
What a great way to bring Senior Year to a close!

NLEOMF Police Unity Tour 2013

I had the honor and the privilege to accompany Millville, NJ’s Team MPD on their journey to the National Law Enforcement Officer Memorial Fund’s Police Week in Washington, D.C this past weekend. Nearly two thousand riders participated in the Police Unity Tour to kick off a week-long of memorial and celebration to honor all of the lives lost in the line of duty.
Team MPD rode this year for one of their own fallen brothers, 40-year-old Officer Christopher Wayne Reeves, as well as the 319 other officers names being added to the wall from around the country.
Filled with emotion, no words could justly describe the reverence felt during the candle light vigil. Each person in attendance mourned side by side each and every name read aloud. 2013-05-15_0001.jpg

Travel Photography – Washington, D.C – The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund Police Week 2013

So, I have the opportunity to go to Washington, D.C this May and document a monumentous event!  The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund each year hosts numerous celebrations during Police Week, to honor Officers who lost their lives in the line of duty during the previous year.  They have a week of celebration and reflection, kicked off by the arrival of the Police Unity Tour riders.

The Police Unity Tour is a collection of active and reitred Law Enforcement Officers and Officer’s survivors, who ride their bicycles over a period of 3-4 days from various regional locations and ending in Washington, D.C.

Each year, on the eve the riders arrive in town, they hold a candle-light vigil to honor the lost, and remember the perils that Law Enforcement Officers face on a daily basis.

I hope to share some of my experiences when I return!
