Lincoln Memorial Love
What a lovely family session at the Lincoln Memorial! Ryan got in touch with me and together we planned out a Mother's Day gift for his wife, Amanda. Family photo time! Their son Grant (9) was quiet - much like I was at that age - but willing to be in photos, even staying still for the surprise kiss-monster from Mom and Dad (cute results below!).
There wasn't a cloud in the sky for our session, it was just beautiful weather and not too too hot in the morning. Still, without shade the degrees ticked up and Amanda bought everyone including me a water partway through (thank you again!). The three of them had a great red, white, and blue theme going on for the National Mall, super cute. We wandered around the Lincoln Memorial and captured some lovely family portraits - including the walking ones I love so much. I got a little bit out of Grant, who loves his Playstation 5 and particularly MLB baseball games. Also, fun fact, he has a YouTube channel with 14 subscribers! Maybe even more by now - impressive for nine years old!
Ryan and Grant both did a good job with the harsh sunlight, and we used a few tricks to protect their eyes and get great photos. Bright days can be tricky, and we got into a good rhythm to capture photos with smiles and open eyes. We had so much fun throughout this session!
Ryan, Amanda, Grant: I am so glad to have met you, and I had a great time with you at the Lincoln Memorial!
