I was so excited to meet up with Chyrisse and her family, not only because it was an extended family shoot (i.e. grandparents, siblings, in-laws and so on) but because it was a reunion that was secretly planned………...how EXCITING is that!!!!
No one in this family lives within close proximity of each other to just 'pop' in for a visit. I know the feeling as my sister and her family live in Australia and I would give my right arm (and left) to arrange something like this! The sisters live in Canada, Australia, Johannesburg and Cape Town respectively and their parents in Betty’s Bay.
Chyrisse and Michelle both own a balloon company called Air Affaire and so it made sense to incorporate balloons into the shoot (come on, who doesn't like balloons???) - one sister arranged the balloons and the other, wonderful t-shirts with a beautiful quote. The back and side had everyone’s name and surname.
We met up early in the morning (the day before they all said farewell again) and enjoyed a most awesome memorable shoot that was simply the perfect way to end a wonderful reunion. There was so much love and laughter (I am not sure how Dad Bruce survived with 4 fun loving girls who love to giggle and tease).
Chyrisse and family I LOVED meeting you all and will treasure this shoot. May the images we captured be a forever memory.
Four sisters, 3 continents, 2 loving parents and 1 very cool tattoo!
Till the next reunion.
