Middle Class Photo Project

This family photo was chosen because it represents a harmonious departure from each member’s daily, weekly and weekend routine. With busy schedules consisting of work, commuting, school, extra-curricular activities and so forth, middle class families must work extremely hard to be together. The photo was taken at the municipal park in Winchester, VA. It had been many years since we’ve taken a family photo and we started talking about getting it done during the Christmas holidays. My wife “made it happen” on a fall Saturday afternoon, eleven months later.
