For the past week, Washington DC has had a teaser of spring. That was all it was, as this morning the DC metropolitan area was blanketed by a cover of white snow. Somehow, I managed to get my daughter up in time to photograph her portrait on my farm in Frederick, Maryland. Nine times out of ten my photographs are bombed by an animal of some description and this time was no exception. All the unexpected snow here in Maryland led my cat to run over to us from his house and lean up against my daughter in her portrait. She loves her cats, so leant over to fuss him and I managed to get the perfect portrait of my child and her cat together!
