FAMILY | The Barnes

 

One of the things I'm always most thankful for are long term friends. People who I've known and who have known me for years spanning across a variety of life, job, location changes, and who have been intentional about not letting friendship be a casualty of any of those circumstances. Katie Barnes is one of those friends (and now by extension and by his own merit Riley as well!) It was so fun to take some "Christmas Card" pictures of them and (now one year old!) Benjamin.

Both Riley and Katie work / have worked on Capitol Hill, and so the Senate Park fit perfectly as a backdrop. I was hoping for some great Fall colors bokeh as we met up after work to take some pictures. You may not know it, but Capitol Hill is a really beautiful place! The iconic United States Capitol Building is distinctive, especially now that the scaffolding has been removed after an extensive two year renovation. I have a suspicion that the picture of Benjamin with the dome behind him will come in handy later in life!
