Picture of the Day: Father & Son, Baltimore Family Portraits

Growing up in Baltimore, MD, my family was extremely close to another family. We shared holidays and beach vacations in Ocean City, MD and Nags Head, NC. Because my brother and I were exactly the same age as the two oldest in their family, we also shared pre-school and religious school on Sundays at Baltimore Hebrew Congregation. We loved spending time with them, playing in the backyard and eating our moms' delicious food - lasagna, brownies, grilled hot dogs and corn pudding.

On my "northeast tour" (with Nick playing gigs throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic), we stopped in Baltimore and I photographed a family portrait for Amy, the oldest, who has two little boys. It was so much fun to do this session because Amy and I have known each other for so long. Seeing their beautiful family, realizing how much she and I have grown up, and documenting this time in her family's life was so meaningful.

Here's my favorite from the whole day: Noah being tickled by his dad, Jeff - PURE JOY.
