I met Sabrina, Leonid, and baby Ivann on a beautiful summer morning at Glenview Mansion for their family portraits. I think this was the first sunny day we had Rockville after a spring filled with torrential downpour- but it was worth the wait and the 7 AM call time (yup, they are total troopers!). One of my favorite parts of family sessions is capturing candid interactions, particularly for families with young children. It is so hard for little ones to focus and smile on command at a camera- it goes against everything in their nature! So my view is, why try? Little Ivann was his happiest just playing with mom and dad, so that’s what we did! I think the results were worth all the “Wheels on the Bus” singing that we did =) Oh- and can we talk about Sabrina’s gorgeous dress for a second? There is no such thing as too dressed up (even if you are ‘just’ a mom, and these are ‘just’ family photos), and THIS is exactly why!
