Portrait Photography of Miss DC 2009 at the Newseum

Honored to photograph the recently crowned Miss DC United States 2009 Joy Hodges at the newly constructed Newseum in Washington DC. The photoshoot was at the very top 8th floor terrace with a grand view of the city. The Newseum is an interactive museum of the world's greatest news stories with 14 major galleries and 15 theaters and a fabulous place to take the family. Standing between the U.S. Capitol and the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue and featuring dramatic vistas of Washington, the Newseum provides a perfect location for photographing Miss DC. It is also a sought-after venue for conferences and special events such as corporate functions and weddings. Views of the U.S. Capitol, the National Gallery of Art and the National Mall make each event unforgettable. You can learn more about the Newseum at www.newseum.org and hosting your events there at Events Hosting page.

Representing our Nation’s capital, Joy was officially crowned for the Miss DC United States beauty pageant on her birthday on April 26. Joy is a Senior Accountant at the Federal Reserve Board and a goodwill ambassador for the Children’s Home Society & Family Services (CHSFS). She contributes to the Board’s mission of public service, but also promotes her charity the Child Sponsorship Program for CHSFS. From personal experience as an adopted child from Thailand, she strongly believes in the importance of community support in the lives and development of adopted children. Her goal is to raise the number of sponsors for the children and the community development projects carried out by CHSFS. More information can be found at http://www.childrenshomeadopt.org/Sponsorship_Program.html. If you are interested in joining her cause, please feel free to send an email to missdcus09@aol.com. She will be visiting a partnered orphanage in Thailand towards the end of August 2009 to meet the children and to provide gifts. Any donation for gifts is appreciated as well as direct donations to the Sponsorship Program.
