It was their mom and dad’s 50th wedding anniversary AND they hadn’t all been together in what seemed an endless amount of time.
When I was asked if I would photograph this family of 17…on Thanksgiving day…I was a bit apprehensive. But then, when I heard how this was the first time in a long time that they would all be together and that it was going to be a surprise for mom and dad’s 50th wedding anniversary, I just knew I had to be there in order to document it.
The tightness of this family is incredible. It was awesome to watch their dynamics. They were also very warm and hospitable to me…to the point that I helped make the gravy that would accompany their Thanksgiving meal.
It was an awesome morning and I’m totally thankful that I was there to capture the moment for them!
