I was thrilled recently to be asked for some portraits by my friend, Karen. We met through the Bethesda jewelry store, Amethyst, where she works. As the weather was perfect today, we went to one of my favorite local parks. Being a weekday, we had it to ourselves. We had a blast taking these photos. If the temperature had not been dropping by the minute we would have stayed for hours. Karen, you are absolutely beautiful and a pleasure to photograph.
