A Beautiful Family | Cary Portrait Photographer

I was just plain delighted when my dear friend Cathy mentioned it was her mother’s 70th birthday coming up, and they wanted to have portraits made for the occasion.

I am an on location photographer, so one Saturday morning we met for coffee & I scouted their homes, and decided to set up at Mom’s place. A perfect indoor sun room, as well as beautiful outdoor lakeside scenery.

We discussed clothing and decided to keep it simple, as I knew the focus here would be the amazing eyes of these gorgeous faces!

The day came, we had a room full of tops strewn over couches, sparkling bubbly & Mom’s favorite home made nut mix (quite yummy!) and my favorite hair & make up artist present.  A great little pamper party for a Thursday morning!


I read this quote somewhere some time ago, jotted it down & have been saving it for the perfect occasion.  And this is absolutely it!

“There are many joys to being a portrait photographer.  The greatest is the experience of a day with beautiful people.”


This image makes me tear up every time.


This one too.  A momma and her son.


I can only hope to be this radiant and beautiful at seventy.  Nan, you are stunning!


Like mother, like daughters …


And this little guy, he whined at our feet until we picked him up.  And then he smiled for me! Funny!

One more outfit change for some color, and back outside we went.

These last two were taken in noon day sun.  Luckily we found some lovely shade & foliage for the backdrop.


Thank you for sharing your beautiful selves with me 🙂
