Pete / Tammy McMillan Photography - Northern Virginia Photographer

Meet Pete. Pete is family and a very dear friend. You would have to spend time with Pete and I to really appreciate how different our personalities are, but how well we also feed off of each other and have a great time together. We also share a love of Virginia wine, so where better to meet and do head shots, but Mediterranean Vineyards. There you would find Pete appreciating the "brightness" and all of the fancy things about wine, while I just think it's yum and think that some of them may perhaps smell like a Christmas tree.

Pete is an incredible writer. Here is a link to a recent story of his that was published - http://youmustbethistalltoride.net/stories/view/71. Recently he was asked for a head shot to put with a story that he's written and he discovered that he didn't have anything that seemed "author worthy". Okay, those were my words, not his ;).

Thanks Pete, as always, for the good times over a few glasses of my favorite wine! If you've not been to Mediterranean Vineyards in Warrenton Virginia, it's a must. Gorgeous views, wonderful family owned Vineyard and some of my favorite wine.

Fun! (Fauquier and Loudon County Family Photographer)

Yep, they're fun peeps! I've had the pleasure of knowing this family for quite a while and grew up with the only male in their house...... oh wait, I think the dogs might be male, but at any rate I've known him a long time! We went to grade school together and spent a lot of time hanging out in high school. He was truly like a brother to me. What I SHOULD do is share pictures from when we were growing up - THAT would be entertaining!

His gorgeous wife and girls are such a blast to hang out with too. We've been able to do some camping together and love every minute of it! So in the spirit of catching up with old pictures and spotlighting a FB fan........ here ya' go!

Wow, are they gorgeous or what?

The cute little calf behind them was cracking us up. I think he was smiling.

New and Improved

So I debated.

I thought, maybe I'll just slip back into the blog.. YEARS later and just pretend like I was never gone. I knew you were all too smart for that, so here I am announcing the new and improved blog. I debated getting rid of all of the old posts and start new, but decided that I really like some of the old stuff so I left it as is.

You see, I really didn't like the fact that the pictures on blogger were so tiny, so the posts were just sort of blah for me. I thought maybe I'd go with a different blog company, but really wanted to make this work. As you see, I've found a way to make the images large on blogger and I'm beyond happy! I'm also working on a fun new blog header too. So for now, I'll stick with blogger.

I have a lot of images that I need to show you and have a fun new fan page on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/#/pages/Washington-DC/Tammy-McMillan-Photography/174123892453?ref=ts) so please feel free to join me there. I've been very busy with sessions and look forward to communicating with you a little more frequently. Here's to a happy and productive 2010!!


Ahhhhhh. High School, senior year. That feeling of having the world at your fingertips... starting fresh.

I had the pleasure of photographing this talented young man that we attend church with. To say he loves music is probably an understatement so it only made sense that his Senior Portraits be musically related. The location and weather were awesome and we had a great time. Good luck with all that you do in life TJ! I'd say with your talent, you have much to offer this world!
