Matunuck Family Portrait / by Ron Cowie

It doesn't happen that often...

Summertime is when families gather from far and wide and often want a portrait made. As the variables of ever expanding families and schedules; coupled with easier modes of long distance communication, make it a very rare thing to have everyone under one roof at the same time. marking the occasion with a portrait is smart.

This extended family is a perfect example of that dynamic. I enjoy seeing everyone having fun. It was a casual affair and most of the time was spent  photographing small groups, kids running around being kids, and the separate families. It's a great way to introduce myself and allows  the opportunity to get a sense of the family and what the mood of the portrait should be.
