Sona’s parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary this past weekend and it was a huge party, with lots of friends and family coming in town. Suresh, Sona’s father, said he was making around 4-5 more trips to the airport that weekend to pick up people coming into town.

Sona, along with hubby Charlie (who looks an awful lot like that guy from that movie The Town) and daughter Amea, wanted to celebrate the event by getting some family portraits done. Her sister and brother-in-law Mike joined in on the fun.

Poor Mike had just flown in on a red-eye from Chicago and went STRAIGHT to the photoshoot after scarfing down some french toast. Luckily he slept a bit on the plane, but I think he was pretty tired.

We hit the jackpot with the conditions on Friday. The shoot had to be done in the late morning, and 10:3o isn’t the ideal time to do portraits out in the sun, but as luck would have it, the clouds moved in and we had overcast conditions the entire time.

Timing is everything. Even if I have no control over it!

Congrats to the happy couple for being married 40 years! You guys were all a pleasure to work with and it was awesome getting to hang out for a bit.

    Superb photos here Mike, everyone looks so relaxed and happy and you’ve really captured that, plus I love all the different colouring and processing techniques. Very good work!

    Great collection Mike! As usual, you are spot on with your composition and processing for these family photos! I have some friends with family in Phoenix who are thinking of heading down to have a session with you, I will pass these shots onto them 🙂
