{family} summer nights, backyard adventures | washington dc documentary family photographer

i was dreaming of shooting a session

with kids in a splash pool, in their backyard, on a warm summer evening. Maggie & Robert delivered.

Well, Vivi and Frida Lou helped too. Ok, they helped a lot. Because these two are pure joy to photograph. They’re such little opposites when it comes to the camera – Vivi is adventurous and fast and daring. Frida is thoughtful and deliberate and knowing. They both inhabit the same little world in such different ways. As I sit behind the camera, watching them, anticipating them, and being surprised by them, I catch the nuances of their personalities in their ways of playing, in their reactions and their inventions.

I love the freedom in this session. The *only* posed shots of the whole shoot were the family shots at the very end of our time together – maybe five minutes of the 45 or so we spent together. Even better, we drank wine while the girls played, we chatted and laughed at their antics. It was barely a photo shoot – it was Life.

Gracias, Maggie and Robert for sharing your sweet girls with me.
