Alina and my son play at the playground together every afternoon all summer. Her family lives about a block away from us. Throughout the summer, we have spent many hours together drawing with sidewalk chalk, sliding down the slide on our bellies, riding bikes, building wood chip piles, and blowing bubbles. Joshua always looks forward to the afternoons because he gets to play with Alina at the park.
We headed out to my favorite park in the area to photograph Alina’s family. We didn’t end up with much formal portraits of everyone smiling nicely and looking at the camera. However, I really felt like the images captured the love and interaction amongst the members of the family, which really tugs at my heartstring.
