It is fun when families want to do a big family photo shoot to capture the different dynamics within their group. This family did photos to celebrate their patriarch’s 90th birthday. We captured the whole group, great grandchildren with great grandpa, cousins, siblings, individual families, couples, and many other variations. We did the session at one of the family homes. It is a special way to get lots of photos to have and enjoy for years to come. Here are just a handful of the photos we captured to celebrate a beautiful loving family.
In the last month I have taken a handful of personal photos that I wanted to share. First, I brought my camera to the Mother’s Day celebration with my family. It has been 6 months since the birth of my niece and we had not yet captured a photo of the six grandkids/cousins together so I thought it would be great to try. We did a photo with just the kids and one with my mom. The next photo session I did was for my husband’s birthday. I do not capture photos of him nearly as often as I should and thought I should try to capture this special time in his life. The last day I had my camera was Father’s Day. I brought it with both sides of our family to capture and document these times in our lives.
The purpose of this photo session was to capture sweet photos of these four cousins/siblings together for a photo book gift for the grandparents. It was a surprise and such a thoughtful gift idea from the two families. We started early one morning and took a variety of pictures in every combination to have a nice range of options for the photo book. A company that I love to use for my personal photo books is Blurb.com. They specialize in photo books and have a quality that is excellent and pricing that is fair. Since my photo sessions include all the images, this is a wonderful way to display many of the photos captured. Below are my favorite pictures from this sweet cousin session.
