Earlier this summer, we met this delightful family at McCrillis Gardens in Bethesda, Maryland for a family reunion portrait session. With grandparents from overseas and siblings from across the country, the session was a race to capture all the images we could in the short amount of time we had available. Besides the gnats (which are legion at the McCrillis Gardens), the day provided us a wonderful time to wander, play, joke and have fun creating these rare family images.

McCrillis Gardens is a gorgeous location for a portrait session or a picnic, but you might consider bringing lots of deet-free bug spray, and check out these highlights from the session below!
