Family Portrait for 70th Birthday Gift

This was a surprise family portrait for a 70th birthday gift. The recipient didn't know that I was coming to take pictures so it was a complete surprise. I don't think he'd have agreed to it if he'd been told about it though. This way he couldn't refuse which is just as well because the whole family now have beautiful pictures of them all together to look back on.

They had booked me for an hour's session so it was a great opportunity for the different parts of the family to have photos as well. They were all taken in their back garden and thankfully the grass was just about dry for the sitting down photo!

There was certainly a celebratory atmosphere and I was offered champagne. Apart from the fact that I was driving, I didn't want their photos to be wonky either.
