it’s wise to be well.

children’s national + united medical center = improved pediatric care.

earlier this week children’s national medical center hosted a very fun event at united medical center to celebrate the new forthcoming pediatric emergency department — made possible in large part by an amazing $11 million grant from the DC government. the event was a wonderful opportunity to introduce the community to the nurses + staff, and everyone had a great time.

“it’s wise to be well” focused on educating parents through information on children’s health, from identifying flu symptoms and ear infections, to basic injury prevention, healthy eating + exercise practices, as well as free car seat checks! the tents were set up in the hospital parking lot, alongside the community farmers’ market, complete with balloons, awesome music, snacks, great give-a-aways, and face painting for the kids! as always, i had a great time documenting another fabulously fun event for children’s national medical center — enjoy!

rachel + scott :: just married!

wedding day, take II.

i *loved* seeing rachel + scott again a few weeks ago for a quick “just married” session in dupont circle! their wedding day was absolutely fabulous {see it here!} but we didn’t get a chance to hit the streets of the city like they had hoped, so we scheduled a fun shoot around their favorite neighborhood! rachel was thrilled to wear her gorgeous wedding dress again and scott looked as sharp as ever in his cashmere suit – love this couple!

children’s miracle network.

miss america + credit unions come together for children’s miracle network.

juri valdov, chairman, credit union miracle day, inc.

last week the atrium at children’s national medical center was a very exciting place – dozens of patients participated in an awesome event to decorate piggy banks and hang out with 2010 miss america! the lovely caressa cameron serves as a goodwill ambassador for children’s miracle network – an international non-profit serving hundreds of children’s hospitals, and the official platform for the miss america organization. the kids loved meeting her, posing for photos with her and the crown, and she even helped decorate and play games with everyone. during the program following the arts + crafts she also spoke on behalf of the organization and what it means to her to be able to work with the children.

in addition to celebrating the children, the event commemorated the absolutely amazing $923,000 raised by the 2010 credit union cherry blossom run. credit unions have sponsored the run since 2002, and contributed over $4m for children’s hospitals nationwide. on sunday april 11 over 15,000 runners took to the streets of dc, marking the 37th year of a great tradition.
