Two More Years!: Inauguration Issue | Washington D.C. Family Photographer

Every little kid wants to grow up to be President. And some are lucky enough to be born with the perfect running mate.

Meet the Resnick twins, Emmett and Finn—two-year-old glad-handers who certainly get our vote in the cute department.

Dressed in a royal-blue shirt and tie and an adorably professional checked Oxford shirt and sweater, these two charmers look Oval Office-ready standing against the stone-gray columns of the National Portrait Gallery in DC.

The setting for the photo shoot seems only fitting, given that the museum houses iconic portraits of each Commander in Chief. The crisp individual close-up portraits of each boy let each of his own character shine through—Emmett’s playful, toothy smile and and Finn’s big, sensitive blue eyes.

But while the promise of a big, bright future looms large in the formality of the clothes and the grandeur of the setting, the pop of the neon-green sneakers and the action shots of the atrium fountain in freeze frame remind us that big-boy ambitions can wait—for now, the Resnick boys are quite content to make a splash just having fun. Running mates? Maybe. Best mates? Definitely.
