One of the daughters was 8 and mom was 30. That was 20 years ago when mom and daughter took their last photo together. Today, the family lives all over the country making it almost impossible to take family photos together. On this special occasion, mom was having her 50th birthday and the family was reuniting on Indian Rocks Beach to celebrate. This was a surprise family photo session for mom and one that will not be forgotten.
Once I arrived at the vacation home on Indian Rocks Beach, I was finally able to meet Katie, the daughter that had waited so long for another photo with her mom and the one who had hired me for this special occasion. I took a quick tour of the home to figure out the spots we wanted to use for the family photos.
I started off with both sisters and mom up on the 3rd floor balcony which is the first photo below and their very first photo together in 20 years. From there, I captured several family photos inside the home before moving out to the beach.
I do have to say, this was one of the easiest family photography sessions I have done. Everyone just fell right into place for every photo we took. Beautiful smiles and such a wonderful family to work with. They were just awesome, fun and full of smiles.
After my photo sessions, I like to post at least one teaser photo for the client to see. I edited the one photo I wanted to post and then found I was so hooked on this beautiful family, I just kept editing until they were done. Below are just a select few from their family session.
