So a couple weeks ago I got a call from my daughter's high school cheer coach. She wanted to know if I'd be available to take some family photos at her grandmother's 95th birthday party! 95th! Wow! Yes!
I got all the information I needed, you know the typical stuff- when, where, how many, etc. When I got to the location for the photos I was met with a beautiful walkway leading up to an equally beautiful front door. I went inside and got acquainted with the house and I got to meet the lady of the hour; the birthday queen herself! She was the nicest lady ever! So sweet and she seemed pretty excited about the photos which isn't what I was told originally.
Finally it was time to head outside. It was a typical autumn day in central California- overcast skies and temperatures in the high 60s. She wanted to stand for the entire time we were going to be shooting but we convinced her to have a seat. I snapped the family group photos and then spent a few minutes taking some shots of her alone.
All-in-all it was a great afternoon spent with a great family and a wonderful and beautiful lady who was turning a mere 95 years young!
