I am always honored when people I know ask me to take portraits for them. Thus, I was very excited when my friend, Nancy, asked me to photograph her family. We used McCrillis Gardens in Bethesda as our outdoor studio. Everyone was so easy to work with. The shoot was very fun, and to the delight of my younger subjects, very quick! I really enjoy doing relaxed, casual, outdoor photos. The light this time of year is beautiful. It is so crisp and clear before the hazy humid days of summer set in.
