Its a funny thing when you have known someone since high school and then 25 years later - their oldest child is a freshman at that same high school. That’s the situation I found myself to much amusement. Are we that old already? Really? Thankfully we are that much wiser and with a whole lot of character and life experienced. For this fantastic woman and mom, she has a wonderful marriage to a true partner and 3 children to be proud of. She is living the fabulous life filled with love, connection and adventure. She has so much to be thankful for.
I love my DC families and this one is EXTRA special!!! I met this great family years ago at a July 4th crab party on the Chesapeake Bay. Now, when visiting my hometown of DC, I see them in the Fall to document their family….especially to photograph the evolution of their pride and joy…their handsome son. This year I met them at DC’s Franciscan Monastery - the family’s special request and a location I have never visited. This setting was so memorable - a true gem in our nation’s capital. An absolute perfect location for this gem of a family.
What a fine DC family! Loving parents, happy kids, big smiles. What else do you need?
I've known the mom in this family for decades - we went to the same high school. But I've never known her in her role as a mother. She is not only a kind and fun friend but she is a fantastic and present mother to her 3 beautiful children and a true partner to her fabulous husband. I'm so glad that when I returned to my hometown of Washington, DC, I got to join this family for all their family fun as well as captured all the laughs and smiles. Memorable photographs to last a lifetime.
A tribute to family love. Absolutely rewarding...totally exhausting...and always magical. There's nothing better in life.
A siblings love is like no other bond,
it is for life and goes far and beyond.
And other love that you will ever find,
a siblings love is one of a kind.
When sibling love grows they will always gain,
a love that's forever and will always remain.
- Robert Arthur Miller
Children are like snowflakes...
Each one is unique.
Each one special.
Each one a gift from Heaven.
