If someone in your family is celebrating a special birthday, having professional photos taken before the party is such a wonderful idea. Everyone is already dressed up and you can plan ahead to coordinate your colors. Before a party is ideal so that you can get the photos out of the way and not worry about your clothes getting wrinkled or kids getting tired. With this session, I arrived an hour before the party was to start at the Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus NJ and during that time I photographed the birthday girl, 90 years young, with her children, her grandchildren and even her two great grandchildren. Then I was also able to get photos of the individual families and multi generation combinations. And then finally one group shot of everyone. Then I left so they could enjoy eating and catching up without a camera in their face for the rest of the evening. Here is one of my favorite shots of the session of all of the grandchildren around their grandmother.
