Thirty three and a third

I love large families. There is something so magical about the energy between all of the people and personalities involved, and as a photographer it is my pleasure to observe their interactions, quirks, inside jokes, etc, and try to capture the essence of those moments together. This sweet family is usually spread out all over the United States, but one weekend last month they found themselves in the same place at the same time and opted to celebrate with a family photo shoot. There were several reasons to celebrate (including a fairly recent wedding and a grad school graduation) but the main focus was the parent's thirty three and a third year wedding anniversary.

It was such a joy to photograph this group, and for the first time my cheeks hurt afterward from smiling and laughing so much during a shoot.  As you can imagine, it's usually the other way around!

I hope this family cherishes these images for at least another thirty three and a third years.
