If my life’s path hadn’t guided me to photography, my hope is that whatever I would have been doing would have involved children. Sweet M and A, and their parents, were just the most darling and charming as we wandered their Capitol Hill neighborhood taking photos on a chilly, late fall morning. One of the things I’ve learned about photographing children is that everyone has to get on their train. They require patience and a sense of humor, two things I thankfully have in spades. When you go in with that, you might just get lucky and get images like these that feel intimate yet full of personality.
