Summer time means BBQ, picnics, and Fourth of July celebrations, all perfect opportunities to round up the family for a reunion.  Holidays aside, it can be hard to find a time during the year when everyone is free to gather.  With school out, warmer weather, and a slower pace of life, summer is an invitation to catch up with loved ones and spend quality time together.

Family reunions may be a great excuse to fire up the grill; however, they also present a perfect opportunity to capture a family portrait.  It was not too long ago when families tended to live close together and moving meant buying or building a house down the street.  Nowadays, families are spread out across the country, scattered among the 50 states.  A family reunion may be the one time all year when multiple generations of a family can gather in one place.

Family reunion portraits are treasured keepsakes for good reason.  These photographs capture multiple generations in a single shared moment of celebration.  A great example of this can be found in the photo above, which was taken at a family farm during a 50th wedding anniversary gathering.  From grandparents to grandchildren, the image freezes the family in time, allowing current and future generations to look back and reminisce or to recognize a family resemblance or two.

Thinking ahead for Christmas?  How about a family portrait for the grandparents?  Getting a family reunion portrait taken in the summer means you have time to choose the right image for framing and gifting in December.  It is both a loving tribute to that special time with family and a lasting reminder of their grandchildren’s youth.

If you are planning a family reunion this summer or some time later this year, consider getting your portrait taken with Michael Broyles Photography.  A Certified Professional Photographer, Michael Broyles will work with your family to set the scene and capture the perfect, once-in-a-lifetime shot.
