Gigi contacted me to take some photographs of her extended family. We had discussed that there would be several families spanning several generations, but didn’t really go into the details. When everyone arrived, we started shooting, without much introduction, as it was late by then, and we were battling a quickly dimming sun on an evening that had been under a constant drizzle of rain only moments before. Once we got warmed up, it was a complete photo free-for-all, and various groups of family members were assembling for various combinations of portraits, and calling out for me to capture them. They also got creative, ‘posing’ for candids, and asking me to capture them as they really are. I love to have an enthusiastic crowd, and this family did not disappoint!
