Olympic Champion Kayla Harrison Gives Judo Clinic
DC-Metro area judoka and Brazilizan Jiu-Jitsu practitioners got a real treat when Kayla Harrison, 2x Olympic Judo Champion, gave a clinic at SportJudo in Springfield, VA.

Emma's Catholic Baptism at St. John the Apostle Church
A little over a year ago I was honored to document the Catholic baptism of Doug and Susan's first child, Emma, at St. John the Apostle Catholic Church in Leesburg, VA.
