What a Beautiful Weekend

I think all of us bypassed Spring and went right to Summer Fever this past weekend! What a great time to be outside. It is a shame that the pools don't open for another month! What do you like to do outside?

As you can see from the photos below, we spent a lot of time outside with our cameras.

Our son the pitcher!

At the end of our day.

Welcome to our Blog Site!

Thank you for visiting our blog. We hope that you will enjoy getting to know us. We would love to hear from you, and to get to know you too!

We are Eric and Debbie Miller, owners of Miller Photography Inc. We will be celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary on May 16, 2009. Out of the 22 years, we have worked together for 15 years in our business. We have met so many wonderful people during this time. Many of them gave us the honor of photographing their "I do's," and many introduced us to their families and children. Others, like high school seniors, shared with us their hopes, dreams, and goals in life.

Eric, a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill (GO Tarheels!) with a degree in journalism, has photographed professionally and full time for over two decades. As a professional photojournalist, his newspaper and magazine jobs took him to Congress and the Virginia General Assembly. He photographed representatives, senators, and governors. Also, he photographed music and film celebrities, as well as sporting events and Special Olympics.

Many of his assignments, like photographing down in unpublicized caves, going out at 2 a.m. with an alligator hunter, and gliding through the air in a motorless plane, made me wonder how his life insurance would work. During these years he won many local, regional, and national awards, as well as achieved his Associate Fellow degree with the Virginia Professional Photographers' Association.

I'm a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University (watch out NCAA next year!), with a degree in secondary education. When college ended I followed my love of art and magazine design. After working with a couple of Virginia magazines, and being a part of an art circuit that traveled all over Virginia, Eric convinced me to exchange my paint brush for a camera.

When we aren't sharing our passion of capturing people's memories, we enjoy being with our three children, dog, and guinea pig.

With the forecast of 90 degrees tomorrow, there will be a whole lot more boats on the water than this!
