I love receiving email inquiries where someone wants to surprise a loved one with a photo session. Having special family portraits (and actually being in them) is such an amazing, thoughtful gift! So what fun it was for me to plan and prepare for these grandparents’ 40th anniversary session with their whole gang as a gift from their family. Knowing they wanted a beautiful, natural setting where they could just play and be together, I set out to scope out local parks. The sunlight we got at the very end of an early summer day was just perfect. What a joy it was to photograph the kids running around with their siblings, cousins, parents, and grandparents. Thank you D family for all participating in the surprise gift, showing up in such wonderfully coordinated outfits, and being ready for anything. My kind of people! Thanks, and enjoy!
