An Up North Family Reunion in Alpena, MI

The Matash family reunion at the LaFarge Social Club, July 5, 2016. Perfect weather, with family coming back home to Alpena from as far as Calgary!

As everybody was just starting to arrive, the guys started up a game.

The youngest cousins found their way to the playset.

And soon, all the adults followed the kids.

Then this happened. It was a standing joke…

And though they originally thought they’d only want candid photography to document the day, the lineups just sort of happened. So- here are the siblings with their mom, the matriarch of the Matash clan.

And the requisite “everybody in” photo. I love the individual portraits that happened here, though!

Then everybody found their way to the beach, a few at a time.

And Skype to the rescue for these two who couldn’t make the trip.

Thanks, Jackie and Jen (and the rest of the Matash family) for inviting me to share such a fun day with you guys- and thanks for sending me home with enough food to feed my family for a couple of days! 😉
