Meet the Patel Family! We planned to meet at the Library of Congress for their extended family photos. It was a special time, their smallest boy turned one that week and it was Father’s Day so they wanted the moment captured with family photos. It was a typical hot June day in DC and the sun was so bright so we went under the arches below and it worked out so well. I try to always have a back-up option in case of rain or sun. Children tend to squint a lot if it’s too bright out.
We took most of the photos at the Library and then walked across the street for a few classic DC photos in front of the Capitol. Larger families can be a challenge to photograph but I just love the way Grandparents add a soft touch to the moments. Grandma’s help coroud the children and Grandad’s are always making people laugh. I hope these images make their way into frames and help tell their family’s story.
