It wasn't too long ago when I did Patrick's High School senior portraits.

Today, we celebrated yet another great milestone in this young man's life/journey, He graduates a as a Mechanical Engineer and proudly Commissioned into the Army. What a fitting location for this photoshoot, the Nation's Capital, surrounding us with monuments, reminding us the cost of freedom.

We woke up to snow and below freezing temperatures, and while I was bundled up, Patrick endured the cold in his uniform. The snow flurries added a solemn and honoring touch to this special occasion.
