It was Connie’s birthday, and her daughter-in-law Alison told me that she hadn’t had her photo taken in over twenty five years. The whole family decided that family photos would be the perfect gift. I met the Laras at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon a few weeks ago. This seemed like a good location for the shoot since Connie and Cesar’s two sons and their wives had attended the UofS at one time or another.
We wandered throughout the campus and stopped to make some photographs as we found interesting locations. And I can safely say that this is the first time a shoot has ever erupted into a Kung Fu match. I had a great time with Connie and Cesar, Patrick and Ashlee, and Gerald and Alison on that Sunday afternoon. It’s always a pleasure to photograph a great family in an informal setting.
Here are some of my favourite shots from the afternoon.
