We recently had the pleasure of creating portraits of a family reunion at the Rio in Gaithersburg, MD.  We always love working with families and children, particularly outdoors in natural light. Various members of the extended family traveled from all over the country to come together for a family reunion. We were limited to working in a very busy area in Rio. It was a beautiful Saturday and swarming with people, and quite a challenge to find a spot with great lighting, a gorgeous background, and without locals in the frame. Persistence  paid off, and we succeeded!

I love how we were able to find some rim light on their hair, with a slightly darker foliage background, as well as managed to bring some of the Cherry Blossoms into the image.

Children are always a favorite of ours to photograph as well. The very cute young girls wore pretty, matching pastel Easter dresses.

Read the review of our family photo session that was written on  Google+  below:

“Mark Lovett’s services are priceless! At the very last minute, my family decided to look for a professional photographer to take pics of our large extended family gathering together to surprise my mom for her 80th birthday. Mark and his wife were quick to call us and fit us into their schedule immediately for the following weekend.     At the photo session, they expertly worked with our large family that included 8 children ranging in age from 9 months to 11 years old. They took pictures for the entire hour, patiently posing the kids and adults and trying varying angles to get the best shots.  By Monday , Mark and his wife Laurel edited and uploaded the shots to an online gallery and by Thursday we received a CD of all the digital images! The pictures were beautiful and Mark and his wife Laurel were spectacular to work with –
THANK YOU! “
