I had so much fun with the Dowdle family during their extended family session in Madrid Park, NY last Friday evening. Almost 2 hours later and just shy of 500 pictures taken we said our goodbyes as the sun was going down over the water. I have so many great pictures to finish going through and just wanted to share a sneak peek of a few before I have their full gallery ready (hopefully by the end of the week).
The session was a beautiful and thoughtful 31st anniversary gift from the three children to their parents - such a special session for all of them. I arrived with a list of photos I wanted to take of each family as well as many group portraits so we went right to work in a shaded corner of the park - starting with the individual family portraits. I then took couple portraits, some of Mom and her daughters and then the grandchildren. These proud grandparents have 6 beautiful granddaughters ranging in age from 6-1/2 months to 11 years - one of my favorite pictures of them is where they were all lined up in age order with the sweet little one on the end. It was obvious how much the older cousins love the little one and we all had fun making faces and noises to get her to smile for her individual portraits (especially Grandpa LOL)!!
As the sun got lower in the sky we moved over by the water to capture some special pictures of the anniversary couple, the loving grandparents with their grandchildren, the whole group and then the parents with their grown children.
A special thanks to my daughter who assisted me at the session - much appreciated!!
