I would never have captured these incredibly special moments if I hadn't photographed my nephew TC's Wedding. How honored I am he recommended me, that's how I was able to photograph this 85 year surprise birthday party for Blanch. I love these emotional moments & I heard this birthday girl was going to definitely be shown some love with what their family had in store for her. Happy Birthday Blanch! Surprise!!
When I was talking to Blanchs 2 daughters regarding the details, I grew more & more excited to be a part of it. Blanch was surprised by one of her daughters driving down from WA (1st photo in this post) for dinner & 2 of her 3 sons surprising her at dinner (The other 1 was already there). In the photo above, she see's her sons entering the banquet room unexpectedly.
When they arrived back at the house after dinner, Blanch had a houseful of family & friends waiting to surprise her. I think it worked. Blanch wasn't feeling well, but she endured the large gathering like a trooper & was so happy to see each person.
Blanch would toss her head back, it was so cute. I caught her doing it in several photos. It was like she couldn't believe what she was seeing or hearing but it made her so very happy.
PERSONAL NOTE: As I previously stated, she wasn't feeling well during her party so she went to the doctor & taking tests so please pray for Blanch.
Again, what an honor to be there for these memories to be captured. I had so much fun & felt like I was part of a wonderful day for this incredible woman. Thank you all for that & hope you enjoyed reliving the day.
