We have a ton of wedding posts in the works, but we really wanted to share the absolutely adorable (and hilarious) family session that we had with the Gersh family a couple weeks ago! We love shooting family sessions, and when the group we get to work with is as much fun as this group was, we love it even more! :)

We started with some portraits of the entire clan…

…then, we just hung out for a while and shot some candids.  I love this one of grandmother and grandson…so precious!!!

We did some portraits of the individual Gersh families, too.  With people as photogenic as this, our job was a piece of cake!

The three Gersh siblings…this part of the session had us laughing out loud.  These three must’ve had a great time growing up together!

    Thank you sooooo much for the amazing photos of my beautiful family. Our parent’s anniversary will always be remembered by these photos, thank you. I would like to order one of every photo.

    Jenn and Ben! Thank you so much for these beautiful pictures. You are very talented photographers- it’s a pleasure to see all of us through your eyes.


  • Geremy Gersh SAYS...

    Having the Ayers photograph the family was a present for our parents 40th Wedding Anniversary. We had such a great time. Ben and Jenn were so patient. They arrived with great ideas for photos. Having to do a family photo with two babies is hard enough, but dealing with all of our crazy ideas as well. Way beyond our expectations – this might turn into an annual event.

    Job well done!
