Happy 80th Birthday, Bill & Catherine!! You are so darn cute!!! Look at those smiles!!!
Originally from McCall, the Petzak family got together in McCall for two 80th birthday celebrations!! Definitely something to celebrate! Almost all their kids, grandkids and great grandkids made it! One couple knew they couldn’t make it early on so they came to my studio and got a picture together so we could add then to the BIG group shot! How cool is that?!?!!
The wall display is a large canvas of the big group (sadly missing a few) and the grouping to the left has smaller family groups and room to add more!!
I “borrowed” some chairs from our Airbnb to get the group shot and so Bill could sit for most all pictures. He has a cool cane but no need to make him stand if he doesn’t need to! Especially when getting a large group situated, this can take quite some time! I do love the look of a variety of standing and sitting. The background is absolutely gorgeous! The family is so beautiful inside and out!!
We were able to pull off a 7:30am session with this group. When people agree to that crazy time, it tells me they trust me and that is what I hope for! I hope they hire me because they love my work and they trust me!
Big thank you to the Petzak family as they made this happen! This right here is what is important! These pictures will be cherished and enjoyed for many years!
