January 21, 2016: portraits at Long Branch Park in Alexandria, VA
Andrey and I met in Alexandria, VA last Saturday for some personal and professional portraits. We started with some shots of Andrey walking his dog. Misha is a very well-trained Alaskan Klee Kai, a breed I'd never seen previously. Long Branch Park was a little windy but not too cold for mid-January.
After the boardwalk, we found a nice grassy area next to a hill. It was fun watching Misha goof off and eat up Andrey's attention. I gotta say that I couldn't be more pleased with the performance of my 200mm. That beast can blur out a background like nobody's business.
We drove to the top of a nearby parking garage for some shots of Andrey's Mercedes AMG GT. On our way, I saw a few guys give us nods of approval and thumbs up. I can see why; it's a sweet car.
We ended the session with some headshots for Andrey to use at work. The conference room in his apartment building was a perfect setting.
Thanks again, Andrey! It was a pleasure meeting you.
