When I was invited to photograph this family reunion they booked me a year in advance.  I don't think my family can plan a month out let alone a year.

I don't usually do this for groups this large but I decided once I was there to take invidual shots of every member of the extended family. This was my favorite part of the whole shoot.

I was inches away from their faces and had a few seconds to really *see* everyone.

Thanks to Heather for rounding up the troops and including me in family time.

Also thank you for the delicious sandwich. xo.
