It's a small world. Monique, an immigration attorney in DC, contacted me to schedule her family's photo session. She found me through Paramount Destinations, the realty company through which she was renting her vacation house. The night before her session, she emailed me and told me that her husband knows me! It turns out we spent 7th grade together at the magnificent HB Woodlawn, an alternative school (at least back in the 80's when we were there) in Arlington, VA. Justin and I were already friends on Facebook, but I had not seen him since I moved to Baltimore at the end of 7th grade.
I had a great time catching up with Justin and meeting Monique and their two children. Rachel is the youngest, going into 3rd grade, and Caelan is her older brother, heading into 5th. Both play soccer, and Rachel loves to dance. They were a lot of fun to photograph, and we were so lucky to have a gorgeous sunset on the beach. Sometimes when the clouds are just right, the sky is just amazing that last half hour before sunset. This sky is real - no Photoshop overlay here - this is how it looked. It was an amazing session!
