I've covered all kinds of birthday parties and family reunions, but I'd never been hired for a "family-be-union" until March 26. That night, I got to photograph a group of grown men and women coming together for the first time as siblings, to celebrate their father's 75th birthday.
An event like this does more than just scream "Awkward!" It sits in the corner, bottled water in hand, and texts "AKWRD."
That's what I was expecting, anyway.
What I found instead was a group of siblings who, though meeting for the first time in their lives, acted like they'd grown up together. With a father they all seemed to love.
