50th Anniversary, 75th birthday, 50th birthday! This family had so many celebrations. Mike was celebrating his 75th birthday as well as his 50th anniversary with his beautiful wife, Anne. I was told all he wanted was for his entire family to be together and to have family photos done to commemorate these amazing events.
I was honoured that they chose me to take their photos. We took the photos at Pigeon Lake where the family has been gathering every summer for almost a decade. Two grandparents, three siblings, three in-laws, and nine grandchildren were a part of this photo shoot. Instantly, I could tell there was a lot of love and joy between everyone which made my job super fun.
Everyone was organized and dressed beautifully and a big effort was made on their part. Grandchildren were ages 16 to 10 months so it was fun to see everyone interact and work together to ensure the littlest ones were happy and smiling for the photos.
Congratulations to Mike and Anne on your 50th wedding anniversary and for raising such a kind and loving family.
