Family Portraits in the Park

Holidays when families gather is a perfect time for portraits!

During Christmas the Gorhams’ 3 daughters were in town as well as additional family members.  Many pictures were taken including small groups – the parents, the sisters, the aunts, the cousins – and the whole group.

The shoot took place on Christmas eve in beautiful Buddy Attick Park in Greenbelt, MD.  Great memories were captured and it was a fun time for all including the photographer.

Dance and party like a good family should

Cousins Mike and Janie had the opportunity to dance and enjoy each others’ company at a family event.  One lives up north and the other in the south.  Many times family only has the chance to get together at funerals or sad occasions.  This was at Janie’s brother’s retirement party and a good time was had by all.

I hope your family is dancing!

Diamonds! – Women with Age Photography

Photography showcasing the beauty of women with age. Diamonds!!

Some of these women are sisters from church,  some I met at various events, some are aunts.  Some are friends from the neighborhood.  The one on the cover with the black hat is my late mother.

Some are gone all and some are still here to treasure.  God bless them all!

Do you have pictures of your diamonds?

Family Portraits: Mother and Daughters by Maryland, Washington DC Photographer

Last Saturday I was asked to photograph a ladies event at church.   I took advantage of the opportunity to make portraits of some of the attendees.

When I asked my dear Sister McElveen if I could take her picture, she jokingly said she was afraid that she might break my camera.  Well, you can see that she came far from breaking the camera and instead gave me some of my favorite images of the day.  The images capture her grace and elegance.

Her daughters were also there so of course I asked to take their pictures. I took pictures of each alone with her and then took a picture of the three of them together.  I think that it is important to have a picture alone with each of your parents and I always do that during family portraits.
