I absolutely love that this amazing family gets together for a reunion at the lake and what a super fun group! It made me a little jealous to think about how much fun they were going to have together over the weekend! When my coworker asked me to drive an hour to photograph her family reunion photos for 36 people, I was a little (okay, a LOT) intimidated. I am the oldest of 8 kids, and I know just how hard it is to photograph large groups of people. But they were awesome, and even the kids were pros. I also loved their color scheme (polos with white shamrocks on them, blue for adult males, coral for adult females and green for the kids), but for this post, I wanted to post all black and white photos. When I think of going through old family photos, I especially love when they're in black and white. They seem more tender and reminiscent of happy times. I hope the Galligan Family loves these as much as I do. I had a blast, everyone! Thank you so much!
Outtakes and Candid Photos:
Four year olds are pretty awesome as a general rule, and Cooper is certainly no exception. He is one of the funniest, sweetest little boys I've ever met. We had "real" photos and "silly photos," and I loved them all. We were lucky enough that his next door neighbors have a beautiful garden that they let us use for the session, and though it wasn't a huge area, we were able to get a variety of shots. Cooper should be known as the boy of many faces because he had such a versatile personality that I never knew what would pop up. I had a great time hanging out with him and his mom and dad and hope I get to work with him again!
Clickin Moms (one of the most amazing sites for photogs!!) recently had a contest with the theme "Circles," so I decided to enter. The results aren't out yet, but it really expanded my horizons to take the everyday items in our lives and use them artistically. Even if I don't win the contest, I enjoyed finding so many ways to express myself through this theme. Check out the Clickin Moms Facebook page here!
