This family was so much fun to photograph!
Occasionally I get calls last minute for family sessions. I totally get it being something you want to plan to, but with all the fun of being on vacation, you just forget. When this family called, I was able to fit them into the schedule for a quick family session down in Sunriver, Oregon. I am so glad it worked out! They are seriously one of my favorite groups to have photographed so far.
I met them at one of my favorite locations, down by the river, and we got shooting. I love getting the big family portraits out of the way when there are little kids around just in case they break down crying. In this case, the kids kept on smiling so it allowed us to get all the portraits done within 25 minutes and we spent the next 20 minutes just playing and having fun.
The whole reason for this session was to celebrate Ata. For his 80th birthday, he wanted to be surrounded with his family. He kids even brought out wine for a special toast. Not only do I love that I was able to document this time for him, I also LOVE all the amazing fun candids and sweet snuggles we captured of their family.
Happy 80th birthday Ata! You have an amazing family!
