A few weeks ago, I had a wonderful sunrise family portrait session at the National Mall. I have been photographing this family for eight years and have been witnessing how the love and happiness truly grew within the family.
This was "a Morning in D.C." session, one of our Lifestyle portrait sessions. How special it is to photograph one of my favorite clients in the beautiful city I love! Although I live 15 minutes away from D.C., I never got to discover how meaningful it is to be living in our nation’s capital. Thousands upon thousands of people visit each day and so many events and celebrations happen at the heart of the national mall every month. In fact, there were three marathons happening while we were there. The event tents were everywhere when I arrived before the dawn at the reflection pool. I could tell there was an amazing concert the night before.
The sky was pink; the sun was rising behind the beautiful Washington monument. Everything around us was calm and peaceful. I had hoped to see the glorious big yellow Sun to rise, but it was even more beautiful when the blanket of fog and cloud hid it. As we watched the city waking up to this calm morning, it felt so perfect to be there. The red dress, the stone columns, the foggy sky, the baby ducks... it was beautiful.
It meant so much to celebrate this togetherness at our home city. Even though we had to wake up at 5 A.M. to avoid the crowds of tourists, it was so worth it.
Below are the images from the session.
October is here. The studio is really busy already but we got two Lifestyle Sessions just added to the schedule in October.
