Belden Stratford Family Portraits - The Adelman Family

I photographed a very fun event earlier this year for NIPRA. I was so excited to help out NIPRA and to meet Alpana Sing, who was the hostess for the event. I was eager to meet new people as well, all while sipping on some really yummy wine mind you. I met the Adelman family through a friend of theirs that attended the NIPRA event. Marc contacted me about photographing his parents 50th Anniversary and the rest is history. The Adelman family decided on taking the family portraits at the beautiful Belden Stratford because that is where the parents were married 50 years ago! That is awesome. I had a fantastic time meeting and photographing The Adelman family. They had so much warmth and laughter that it made my day seeing them all interact. Here are a few photos of that family portrait session:

My many thanks to the Adelman family for inviting me into their lives and allowing me to capture such an important day in their families history. Thank you!

    By The Way: The new Alien Bee PLM is really a great modifier. I am looking to pick up the larger 86 inch PLM for studio work. That is A LOT of light :)
