50 years

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of going to the beach to photograph the most awesome family for the grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary. It was such a great time as well as a huge learning experience for me! They were a big Italian family...18 people in all with 10 of the cutest kids I have ever seen. I left the session sweaty, covered in sand from head to toe and feeling panicky that I hadn't gotten anything that they would be satisfied with. Now, a week and a half later (and finally finished editing), I'm a little less sweaty, sand-free, and still slightly panicky that they won't like what they see (and paid for). I'm hoping that I'm just being too judgemental of my own work, but we'll I said, it was a HUGE learning experience for me and I loved every minute of it! And, I'm going back down this weekend to do it again! My sister and all of her Auburn Phi Mu sorority sisters are getting together this weekend for a reunion and they want me to take a few group shots of them with all of their kids....10 girls with 14 kids! That's right, I said FOURTEEN kids...........oh geez! Maybe this time I won't be quite as nervous and I'll leave feeling a little more confident. Anyway, here are a few of my favorites from the day.

Twins...can you believe it? So cute!!!

Emma - these are so lovely! I'm impressed you were willing to take on such a big group. I'm sure the family will LOVE these!

Emma said...

Thank you!
Christy-I actually didn't know it was going to be such a big group until after I had agreed to do it and when I found out, i freaked out a little :)
