I photographed the Doughty family this summer at Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria, Virginia. Reed Doughty (#37) is a defensive player for the Washington Redskins and was profiled for the November/December 2008 issue of the Hearing Loss Magazine, published by the Hearing Loss Association of America. I design and produce the bimonthly magazine and also shoot many of the covers and features.
Reed is serving as the 2009 Honorary Chair of the Washington, D.C. Walk4Hearing™ to bring about awareness about hearing loss, its implications and causes. He recently did a PSA for the Hearing Loss Association of America and you can view it here. For information on the Walk4Hearing™, visit HLAA’s website here.

In the July/August 2009 issue of Hearing Loss Magazine, Reed commented, “Hearing loss might have a stigma sometimes, but I am in need of hearing enhancement. I’m going to wear hearing aids. I hope others will get the help they need.” Learn more about Reed’s football career on the Washington Redskins website here.
I met Reed, Katie and their two adorable sons at Green Spring Gardens for a family portrait session. Later I photographed Katie and her sons in my studio and posted a few images from that session here and here.
