Family Portrait Session: The Browns // Black Hill Regional Park, Maryland

I don't do family portraits very often, but when one of your favorite families ask you to shoot their family portraits, it's an honor! The Browns are a fun and laid back family. I met them through Journey's Crossing Christian Church, where the father is the Outreach Pastor. I used to emcee Sunday morning services when I was a member there, so we would fist bump in the hallway as we swapped places on stage. I remember coming to their home to learn how they ministered to those taking their first steps in their relationship with God. I remember chaperoning one of the daughters at a teen conference way back when she was in high school and being impressed by her devotion. I've learned so much from this family about being a faithful and relatable follower of Christ. I'm so grateful that our journeys crossed. 

We all felt a little nervous because the thought of posing and smiling for an extended time would be uncomfortable. But working with Shala was no stress. It was easy and natural.
