Summer on the Eastern Shore | Documentary Family Reunion | Jamesville, Virginia

September 3, 2018

An annual family reunion at grandma’s house on a spectacular property right on the water.  This family hired me to simply document their day together, unposed.  I spent hours with them, which honestly, is the only way to truly chronicle enough to tell a great story.  Documentary entails time so that’s what we planned for & the only way it could have been even more perfect is if I was hired as their lifelong documentary photographer.  This family was an absolute blast!

I was greeted by dogs, horses, & shirtless dudes riding golf carts & scooters.  A killer start to this fun filled jam packed session.

We started off building a yard game they love to play. I think they broke the machine, but we just kept it going & didn’t tell grandma, “shhhh”.

It was fun to have the freedom to roam wherever I saw fit.  I made sure to check every corner in case someone was hanging out there worthy of documentation.

I rode in the golf carts, got to pet horses, hung out on a pier, & drank homebrewed ice coffee.  This was just as enjoyable for me as it was for them!  I mean, I was out of breath lol, but totally worth the effort.

What a treasure for this family to have these times documented.
