I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love this job…and I use that word loosely. This past weekend I photographed this precious couple and their 20 children/grandchildren/daughter-in-law/sons-in-law/grandson-in-law. Jim, the patriarch, had me in stitches. I think it’s safe to say that we became fast friends…so much so, I hugged him before I left.
Everyone gathered in honor of this lovely lady though, Jane, to celebrate her 80th birthday. It had been a few years since the family as a whole had been photographed and Jane’s birthday was the perfect occasion to do just that. But before getting the 22 of them together, the individual families gathered for a few of their own shots. And here’s a sampling from our afternoon together.
I’m sorry, but I love this girl. And it might not look like it by that sweet smile on her face, but she is one fierce tennis competitor. Look for her in a few years on the college circuit. No, really. I say, Go Dawgs! Yes, Blaine. Go Dawgs. 🙂
This one cracks me up. I love getting a few shots of people and their silliness. This family did not disappoint. Sam and Austin, I’m looking at you.
Happy birthday, Jane! You have one fantastic family.
