For this Georgetown family portrait, we walked over to the C&O Canal in the heart of Georgetown only to find it drained and about to undergo a couple (few) years of restoration. Yet despite its “under construction” status it remains a very interesting, historic and — dare I say — beautiful location in the neighborhood. The end result: a classic Georgetown family portrait achieved with a little clever perspective changes. I loved getting individual shots of each of the kids on film. Film photography adds just a touch more “special” to the photos. When I tell people I’m using film, it never fails to make people feel the excitement about the deliberate intent of the photo session.
So on a very windy, yet gorgeous fall afternoon in Washington DC, this fun and funny family allowed me the pleasure of discovering that out-takes can be better than the “posed” shots. Goodness how the hair flew around! I say it made the mood all the more light-hearted. I couldn’t ask for better expressions. Eileen and Bob seem preternaturally able to keep things in perspective in their blended family of teenagers.
Color me impressed. Check out those red shoes!
