Harrison & Gail | Homestead Family Portraits

The Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, Virginia, is a fantastic place to gather and relax with family: there’s delicious food, swimming, a spa, golf, and beautiful architecture to admire everywhere you walk.  (I still daydream about the blackberries I had at their breakfast buffet about a decade ago!)  These things make it the perfect place to hold a family reunion, vacation, or anniversary weekend.

Harrison and Gail did just that, celebrating their 5oth wedding anniversary in style at the historic resort.  And what better occasion to dress up and have family portraits made?

These photos make me smile every time I look at them.  True love and laughter, fifty years on, is just inspiring to witness and an honor to photograph.
