TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR PHOTO:
There’s a bit of a story behind this photo. A week earlier we celebrated my eldest son’s bar-mitzvah. Because we had family come together from everywhere I organized a professional photographer to take a few shots before the evening celebration. We organized that our family would get there a little earlier than everyone else so we could have the opportunity to take some family shots of our family. On the actual day the photo session didn’t go quite as smoothly as hoped and was a little rushed, but the setting was beautiful and we felt that we managed to get some good shots. A couple of days later we received a digital copy of over 300 shots. After going through all the amazing photos of what was a memorable day it occurred to us that we missed taking the most important family shot. In all the chaos of the shoot we didn’t stand together as a family. Of course the photographer was extremely apologetic and offered a second shoot just of our family at our chosen location free of charge. So a week later this photo was the result. We chose to have sunset photos down at our local beach. It was a beautiful evening.
