Times are better

The house is painted and everybody has shoes.

Rothstein's Portraits

There is a reason that Gisele Bündchen is paid so much to be a model. Rothstein got so much beauty out of very regular looking folks. He was a genius.

Little Guy

It looks like his little guy has a matching outfit. Very cute!

Quiet family moment

I'm guessing Dad just got home from a hard day’s work. Time to relax and spend quality time with his family & dog. It seems Dad is glad to see his little guy. Nice to see the photographer caught this moment.
