Georgian Forest Elementary School Thanksgiving | Silver Spring, MD Photographer

Last Thursday my church and I got to hop into a six-year-old tradition of Georgian Forest Elementary School putting on a free Thanksgiving dinner for its students and their families. It was awesome.

Volunteering kiddos were asked to serve cookies without too much supervision, which ended up with every child in the room being spotted with literal fistfuls of cookies. It was awesome.

Anyway, happy thanksgiving to you! You’re awesome.

Strathmore Backyard Theater – Recess Monkey

Perks of a job at Strathmore:

  1. Attending billions of weddings. Okay, not literally billions. But millions, at least.
  2. Attending children’s concerts.
  3. Attending children’s concerts with free snow cones.

Apparently, snow cones are properly spelled “Sno Kones,” which seems to lead to some pretty contentious debates. We can save that for another day.

Anyway, parents: Strathmore’s upcoming Backyard Theater schedule can be found here, and check out Seattle elementary school teacher band Recess Monkey here! Their newest album is entitled “In Tents,” so obviously I liked them before I heard them.

90th Birthday Party at The Four Seasons

Recognize some of these little ones from awhile ago? I was lucky enough to have my first repeat clients and got the chance to photograph Karen’s grandmother’s¬†90th birthday! I did just say 90, and I think it’s probably fair for me to say that we’d all like to look as beautiful as Shirley when we turn 90. Seriously! That’s not fair!

Her family threw her a little celebration in a ballroom at the Four Seasons at Logan Square, right across from the Philadelphia Art Museum. It opened right out into a little patio and courtyard!
