Family Reunion in Kansas City

Jon and I packed up the kids this past weekend and flew to Kansas City Missouri for his grandmother's 90th (!!!) birthday party/family reunion. There were over 100 people in attendance, most of whom I had never met. I offered to take some family formals because it's not very often that you get your ENTIRE family in the same state, let alone the same building. I used all of the knowledge I've gained from family formals at weddings to get these portraits done quickly and efficiently. But with a lot of people ages 1-95, that's no easy task! Luckily we only had minor hiccups. Family formals can be fun but they can also be stressful if you are not prepared. I made sure to set up all of my equipment an hour ahead of time so we could jump right in and knock them out. Afterwards we had some fun photobooth props for the kids to take pictures with. They all had a great time and we really enjoyed being with family we don't see very often.
