Reynoso Family Reunion Photographs

It was quite unexpected, photographing this Family Reunion as we were moving to CA…

When my family and I began the 1,700 mile  trek towards the reunion destination we figured we were just going as attendees since it was the reunion for my husband’s side of the family. We always enjoy attending them as they allow us to get to know my father-in-law’s family better. My Father-in-law is one of eleven children and the reunions are quite an undertaking!

As I stated in my last blog post we arrived at the reunion with our entire life stuffed into a 26′ U-haul and two 12′ trailers and a minivan …with 400 more miles still to go. Two adults, five children (3yo to 19yo), the dog …and the turtle. Yeah- it was a bit of an adventure. Yes, that is an understatement. :)

The morning of the reunion as I was trying to get my crew (and the dog!)  together to drive to the park the reunion was to be held in, I received a call asking me if I had my camera gear handy. It so happens that I’m a bit possessive of my gear.  ;) I didn’t want it bouncing around haphazardly in the van/trailers so it was within easy reach. I was asked with about an hour’s notice. This left me scrambling to make sure my batteries were charged, my memory cards emptied, and lenses were smudge free. I’ve never been so glad to be travelling with two 16GB memory cards! I had anticipated taking a number of photos. I had no idea I’d walk away with hundreds.

As you can imagine the main focus for the first two hours of shooting a reunion with about 200 attendees were the “Hi Mom” shots- everyone facing the camera with smiles all around, mostly.  After the group shots I combined walking around and chatting with capturing candid photos.

Below  are some of my favorites.

Nine of the original eleven children.

She was far too cute to ignore. :)

One of the…many… family groups.

Too adorable!

Striking a pose. :)

Aunt Mary cracks me up!

Some of the grandchildren….

This might well be my favorite photo of them all…

With this being a very close second.

A manicure to match. :)

Sisters…

      You are very welcome, Veronica. :) I hope to make all the photos available for everyone in the family to see, soon. I’m working on some behind the scenes logistics/communications which are taking some time to work out.
