DC to Pittsburgh Via Bicycle.

Vacation for Sarah and I usually means some sort of insane bike trip. This year came with some career shuffling and schedule uncertainty and we weren't sure we would have the time for an adventure.

Pittsburgh Help Portrait 2013

Help-Portrait is a once yearly event that happens on the first Saturday of December. It is a coming-together of photographers, retouchers, make-up artists, hairstylists, and other volunteers to provide portraits to folks who might not otherwise have the means to get their portrait professionally taken.
