good morning and Happy Father's Day.
my family and i are getting ready to travel across the country and meet as many of your families as we possibly can on our FREE FAMILY PORTRAIT ROAD TRIP!
our schedule is finally set, we will be leaving saturday July 8th and making our first stop in Pittsburgh spending a couple hours shooting family portraits for all comers at The Pennsylvanian.
from there we will be traveling through Ohio, up to Detroit, Chicago the across the country on Route 66 all the way out to Los Angeles and finally San Diego where we will end our trip at 32nd Street Naval Base to photograph Active Duty Service Member Families all day July 18th.
we are going to be stopping at landmarks and tourist attractions along the way, the days and times will be determined as we go, and we will be live tweeting and updating to let people know exactly where we will be meeting people all the way across the country.
