When was the last time you gathered your extended family for professional photographs?  Have to think about that too long? Family pictures are so important for documenting how your family changes and grows.  Generations to come will look at them and be able to point out their great-grandfather when he was a young boy.  They are vital do documenting our nations history and your family history.  I am always thrilled when I am asked to do extended family sessions because I know the photographs are truly a stamp of time.  Here are a few highlights from a family session turned surprise 80th birthday party.  I'm so happy to have been able to do this.
