It was an unseasonably warm day in Rockville at the Glenview Mansion when I met Amr and his family for their portrait session. Exchanging our coats and shivers for sweaters and sunlight, we explored the grounds slowly, allowing the littlest member of our party to primarily lead the way. About half way through the session, our pint-sized tour guide grew concerned about the camera. Not the photographer—he had no objections there—only when the camera was actually used did he put up protest. But, by turning up the silly-factor a bit (yes, all three of us adults, and yes, it was quite a sight), we were able to coax the smiles out, giving way to beautiful family portraits.
