photocrati galleryWe photograph the Ryan family each year on location in Silver Spring, MD. These are a four of the many images taken on November 1, 2014. For the most part, we used natural light with a gold reflector because the day was overcast. Indoors we used  a large window for light and a off camera fill flash bounced off the opposite wall which was white. The camera used was a Nikon D800 with an 85mm Nikon lens set a shallow depth of field (f2.2).


Our children and family portrait studio is located between Rockville and Gaithersburg, Maryland.  Carl will capture those price-less expressions as well as give you and your family a very personal experience.  Our special approach to photographing families and children creates memories you will enjoy sharing with friends and families forever.  We offer a wide variety of beautiful outdoor and indoor portrait settings all within one convenient location.
