A couple months ago we met up with this family for a portrait session during a reunion around their patriarch’s birthday. The family was meeting for their festivities at Turf Valley Resort, near Ellicott City, which also became our backdrop. The most convenient time for our session was right in the midst of the midday sun. So, we stuck to the edges, and stayed in the shade. We created a wide variety of images, using different groupings and locations around the immediate area. Although we did move around a bit, some of the family member’s were working with mobility challenges, so we were sure not to get too far away from the seating, and we stayed out of the direct sunlight.

The images came out wonderfully. Check out some of our favorites below. If you’re planning a family reunion, it really is a perfect time to set up (sometimes) once in a lifetime portrait session.
