I really enjoy taking family portraits, studio or life style the opportunity to bring people out of themselves and capture something they never thought possible is a great challenge with a high personal reward. It's even more special when the session is for a special occasion or involves people from far flung places. This session covered both of those as this would be delivered some time later for Gramdma's upcoming special birthday and a number of participants were visiting from Australia.
So even though the birthday and subsequent party was not until September we all gathered on a chilly January morning to take pictures. I packed up the portable studio and set off to grab a family portrait that would have to wait 9 months until it would be seen. The shoot was not without it's problems as those that took part will know ( but we will keep the details to ourselves ).
Now the birthday party has been and gone and the picture of the Grandchildren all together has been delivered, I can now share a few off the pictures. Having spoken with the family since the framed print went down a treat and I am sure is bringing a smile everyday.
