my family

I’ve wanted to take portraits of the fam for almost as long as I’ve been photographing. I finally had the opportunity when everyone was all in one place for grandmother’s 80th birthday. It wasn’t the most ideal situation for a portrait session, but I’m glad we got the opportunity regardless.

Beginning with the matriarch: Grandma Phyllis Weir

Me! In a family full of photographers, it wasn’t hard to find someone to step in to take this shot:
