Darrel & Jo

Darrel & Jo were driving three hours to get their family pictures taken so we decided to make it a fun time together and not just a photo session.  We met at the Paw Paw Tunnel in West Virginia, a beautiful spot along the Potomac River.  The tunnel is an incredible feat of engineering built by hand.  It allowed the canal boats to shave off a few miles, but the building process was much more drawn out and expensive than anticipated.  No longer used today except by bikers and hikers, it’s a great place to explore and a magnificent back drop for family portraits.

I love the mixture of personalities shining through these kids!  Evan and Elliot are twins …. great friends, yet very much their own person.

The following day when we rafted down a different section of river, Elliot spent most of the day passionately fishing while Evan dived and swam.
