Family get-togethers and celebrations are excellent times for family portraits. Patricia’s family gathered in Maryland a few weeks ago to celebrate their matriarch’s 90th birthday.
An hour or so before the celebration began and before any guests arrived, the photo session took. Scheduling the session prior to the party allowed plenty of time for a good variety of images which would have been more difficult to capture during the party.
Having a good looking, friendly family also helped.
Happy 90th Birthday!
Having a party or special event? Schedule your photography as soon as possible.

Handsome youngster with braids. Photo taken at his family reunion event in July 2015.
Children are always a pleasure to photograph especially when they are like this young fellow. He enjoyed having this picture taken. He was often nearby ready for another shot.

Last Saturday I was asked to photograph a ladies event at church. I took advantage of the opportunity to make portraits of some of the attendees.
When I asked my dear Sister McElveen if I could take her picture, she jokingly said she was afraid that she might break my camera. Well, you can see that she came far from breaking the camera and instead gave me some of my favorite images of the day. The images capture her grace and elegance.
Her daughters were also there so of course I asked to take their pictures. I took pictures of each alone with her and then took a picture of the three of them together. I think that it is important to have a picture alone with each of your parents and I always do that during family portraits.
These are images that the family can treasure for years.
