Ora's 100th Birthday || cedar rapids, ia event & portrait photographer

Photobucket
I love the opportunity to photograph something different from what I typically shoot,
and was excited when I got called in September about documenting a 100th birthday party!
Mary, (Ora's daughter) is the grandma of one my best childhood friends, Katie,
and I was so happy it worked out for me to photograph this event for them.
They had multiple family members traveling back to Iowa for this event, and so we did some family formals at the beginning,
and then I was free to capture candid moments throughout the rest of their time together.
Ora is such a wonderful lady..she commented to someone how she didn't think she would live to be one hundred--pretty impressive. :)
Everyone who was there was super easy to work with, and so sweet to photograph.
Although I don't shoot many events, I thrive on capturing genuine moments, and I love these shots from their party.
enjoy a few of my favorites..
