Summer Love | Bethesda Family Photographer

I just posted this on my facebook page a few days ago but I love it so much I thought I’d share it here too.

Innocent, summer love.  Nothing beats the love of siblings.  The boys even kiss their big sis goodbye each morning before she gets on the school bus and run to greet her with a hug when she returns.Bethesda family photographer

Project 52: Back to School | Bethesda Child Photographer

My baby is going to kindergarten!  Well, she’s actually my oldest but my first to head off, so that’s hard.  She even decided she wants to take the bus to school the FIRST day!  She says she “practiced” riding the bus with me a few weeks ago when we took one out to a Civil War Re-enactment, so she’s set.  Wow!

So to commemorate the occasion, we took a little mommy-daughter date and drove around Montgomery County, MD looking for school buses to use in our photo shoot.

First, we went to the depot in Bethesda.  No dice! Locked and high fences.  Then we headed to the depot and maintenance yard in Silver Spring, MD.  Again, locked and fences but the maintenance yard was open.  However, we had seen two buses in front of a high school as we were driving so we headed back there.

Bummer!  One bus gone and one behind a fence.

However, upon closer inspection, the fence was not locked so we had a little photo shoot with it.  I forgot to ask it for a model release but I think it’s all good.  He seemed a bit lonely in the back-forty of the parking lot.

Project 52: Small | Maryland

Almost two weeks ago my kids and I set out on a crazy road trip across the United States.  We left Maryland and ended in Colorado, visiting friends and family, crossing eight states along the way.  In Illinois, we were able to visit my smallest niece and take some almost-one year old pictures.  She was a miracle baby and we all love her!
