You may recognize this cute family from Madeline's newborn session.  The Hodges are great friends of  ours, and it was so fun to photograph them again!  Nick recently came home from Army Basic Training  (after winning a position in the Army Strolling Strings).  The cool thing about this story, is that he actually replaced the viola position I just left.  I know firsthand how hard it is to have Daddy gone, so I am so happy that they are together again, just in time for Madeline's first birthday!  Adrienne wanted to do some pictures with the cherry blossoms, so we went downtown on what seemed to be the busiest day of the cherry blossom festival. ;)  Thanks, Adrienne, for giving me an excuse to come back to DC to see you guys and the beautiful cherry blossoms!
