rainy-day family portraits

i met with some family friends of ours at brookside gardens in wheaton, md, on a recent sunday to take some pictures. the weather had been gorgeous the day before, but by the time we got out to the park late afternoon, it was overcast and just the tiniest bit drizzly. i got there just before them, and when i saw a bride strolling through the park for her own pictures, i was determined to stay and try, too!our friends' older daughter is just a little younger than our son, and they seem to be becoming friends, too!
