Georgetown in Bloom

Image
Today I had a photo shoot with independent filmmaker Ebony Brown in Georgetown, DC. Ebony Brown will be graduating with her MA in Film and Video from American University this spring. For a spring time shoot, Georgetown is the perfect place.

I just thought that I'd share a few quotes and photos . I find that there is something very special about having conversations with strangers; though you may never come across their paths again, they can leave an impression on you that can last a lifetime.
