Incoming House members of the 116th Congress came together outside the US Capitol for their class photo.
With some locking arms to help keep each other warm, the member-elects smiled for cameras.
The photo-op is part of a series of planned events for the new member orientation week.
The new members of Congress are a younger, more diverse group.
The freshman class includes a record number of women who drove the most powerful Democratic sweep of the House since the Watergate election of 1974.
Democrats picked up at least 32 seats, with several races still undecided.
