This lovely family came to me though my dear friend, Richard Holden, a DC photographer who has settled on the banks of the Chesapeake and now takes only local jobs. Many thanks to Richard because this job was a really great one. Dean called me a couple of months ago to set up this shoot as a surprise for his wife to take photos of them and their four year old daughter. They teach at the Washington International School so we were lucky enough to have full run of the beautiful campus and mansion on a Sunday afternoon. Dean also brought along his mother, father and sister-in-law. We shot outside until we lost the light and then moved into the mansion for a couple of shots in front of the fireplace.
This was a very nice family - so much fun to photograph and spend an afternoon with. I do hope our paths cross again.
