Family Reunion 2014!

July 14, 2014

“In every conceivable manner, family is link to our past, bridge to our future” – Alex Hadley


I don’t advertise this, but I DO photograph events!  I met Beth a few years ago when she was starting up her flower business, and so when it came close to their family reunion she asked if I would be able to come take candids and a large group image.

And while it was a bit hot, everyone there was SO thankful it wasn’t raining [side note: I talk about the weather a LOT when it comes to photography.  When you are an on-location photographer, you become just a bit obsessed with the weather forecast].

It was so fun to hang out with your family and photograph some sweet moments for you guys!  Looking forward to photographing you again in the future!


ps: starting off with the matriarch of the family!

    I love this. Having this time all documented is such a beautiful idea! These are awesome – the one of the little hands with the cherry and the drip on the dress – perfect. All of their memories have been captured so well!

    The thing I like best about hiring out this type of session is that everyone involved gets to relax and focus on being present in the moment and not worried about trying to take a bunch of pictures. You did a fantastic job for them!

    Super sweet! I bet they LOVE having these memories!!!

  22. July 21, 2014 2:54 pm

    This looks like so much fun! I think it is a great idea to hire someone to get photos for a reunion like this, I’m totally doing that next time! LOVE the one of grandma with all her grandbabies, too!
