Earlier this summer I was contacted by the Hall family for a portrait session with special significance. To celebrate their parents’ 50th wedding anniversary, the family surprised them with a bench dedicated in their honour at a Winnipeg park where they first fell in love. After the bench was unveiled (with red ribbon and all!) we took photos of the entire family – grandparents, kids and grandkids. I love doing multi-family portrait sessions and¬†these guys were a prime example of why: bigger families mean bigger the fun, bigger the laughs, bigger the goofing around! We did the standard poses but interspersed were other candid, goofier shots (some a little too crazy for me to blog!). I definitely had a lot of laughs with them – they love to have fun together and some of them are certainly not shy in front of the camera!

Here is a collection of some of the photos from the session – definitely an awesome way of marking this special occasion and creating memories for years to come. Congratulations on 50 years of marriage! It was truly an honour to do these photos you!
