Portrait photographer captures signature image of US Army veteran in Silver Spring Maryland

One of the great joys of being a photographer is having the opportunity to help clients capture important moments in their lives. The image below is of a great friend and neighbor of mine, Lou. Lou was one of the original home owners in our neighborhood and worked for many years in the US Army, first as a young private during World War II in the European theater. After the war, he was posted to various overseas posts including Taiwan before finally returning to this area to work at the Pentagon until his retirement. Lou was gentle soul, heavily involved with his church as both an usher at Sunday service and as treasurer to one of the biggest single mom support organizations in Montgomery county.

This image of Lou was photographed at his home. We setup a studio in his front room and captured a series of images of him sitting at his dining room table. I have titled the image 'Wisdom Comes With Age'
