Olsen Family (Galveston, TX Beach Session)
When all the family is in town, it's cause for a vacation at the beach. But when your parents are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary and your dad's 70th birthday, that means it's time to celebrate!
As children grow older, have their own families, and people move apart, it makes it that much more special when you're all able to get together. This is why I was so happy when Mary contacted me about getting photos of her family. They were all getting together this summer on the beach in Galveston for a weekend of family fun and togetherness. The best part though? She was surprising her family with me - a professional photographer - who was going to capture every single lovey-dovey glance, tickle fight, and squishy sand between the toes moment.
I met them one morning during their weekend at the beach and we had a great time blowing bubbles, getting sand all over our clothes, and oh yeah - it rained. But you know what? It was a perfect session. It's amazing how just creating a space for people to have fun and enjoy themselves can allow for some great photos to come forth! Love always shines through.
Thanks for sharing your vacay with me guys!
