Valentines for Dads & Daughters

Ok, I couldn't resist sharing a few of these special portraits from the DuPont Daddy Daughter Dance...just for Valentine's Day. This is the second year I have photographed the event and many familiar faces.

We have many military families in DuPont, since we are right next to Joint Base Lewis-McChord. That means that many young women were escorted by "dads for the dance" because their real daddies were deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan.

Last year, our Mayor Tamara Jenkins and her husband Clint  accompanied two young women to the dance. Dads who were deployed last year were here this year to escort their daughters to this special event.

I remember one family in particular. Last year, their daughter was escorted to the dance by her big brother. Brother later came to the Mom Superhero Ball in May (Friday before Mother's Day) with his Mom, dressed as "men in black." It was such a delight to finally meet Dad.

More (from last year) are in my Daddy Daughter gallery and my Portrait galleries.

Thanks for the memories DuPont Dads! And welcome home to our military Dads...and Moms!
