Today was an incredible day. KaBOOM! celebrated its 15th birthday with its 2000th playground build at Imagine Southeast Public Charter School in Anacostia. And, the First Lady, Michelle Obama, was there! 

I am still completely overwhelmed by the fact that I photographed Mrs. Obama today. It was exciting, nerve-racking and fun! Her smile is contagious and her grace is impeccable. She laughed and worked alongside my colleagues, called out to acknowledge those neighbors who were not inside the fencing and reached out to hug the kids.  I just love her…
