My client set up this session for her parents’ 50th anniversary year. She wanted photos of the whole family and photos of her parents with their grandkids. As we were a few days away and the weather forecast for the weekend was not looking great, I knew we had to make this session happen. Coming from a big family, I know how challenging it can be to get everyone in the same place at the same time. Luckily we moved the session time up and only had a bit of drizzling here and there.
We used the grandparents’ home in Boonton as the location and it ended up being the perfect spot. It was beautiful, secluded, and had gorgeous fall-toned trees. The family was very go-with-the-flow and everyone was always laughing and ragging on each other. The biggest troublemakers were actually my client’s brothers. I have many pictures of them making silly faces haha! This is something I always find with my own brothers, so I can relate, Gram. It is so hard to get the perfect smiling pictures when you have a family like that. But it is very easy to see love and laughter… to be transported back in time to that very moment… when you look at pictures that depict more of the reality of your family. Those ones are always my favorites in every session 🙂 Happy anniversary, you two lovebirds!
