An Eid Celebration with the Alghoul Family
To celebrate the day of Eid, the end of the 30-day fast of Ramadan, the Alghoul family got together for a family photo shoot. They were joined by Mohammed, Jennifer, Noah, Rustom, Hajar, and Awwad.
Last year, we had the pleasure of photographing the Alghoul family when Suhaib (nickname Susu) was just 18 months old. And how he has changed! The little boys were full of joy and excitement during the session. Suhaib, and Noah, Jennifer and Mohammed’s son, look like little twins. They are around the same age, and it was easy to see the family resemblance!
When we arrived at their home, we started in the backyard with Yasmin and Ahmed and photographed them together with her father. We got a bunch of different combinations of the boys together with their parents and grandfather. The kids were energetic, so we got a soccer ball out so they could play with their father. We sat Suhaib in a tiny little wooden chair, and he gave us some awesome smiles. Yousef showed off his Ghostbusters toy truck, a big grin on his face.
Next we shot some family photos of Jennifer, Mohammed, and Noah. Noah found a toy truck, and he put a little red fireman’s hat on his head. He was adorable. The two youngest boys got small vehicles to ride on, and side by side they motored about the yard.
Then it was time for the full family shots. We gathered everyone around, using chairs and benches to provide different heights in the shot.
Finally, in celebration of Eid, the boys received a gift! The two families pitched in to get a child size Mercedes-Benz for their kids! They were awestruck, and immediately wanted to give it a drive around the yard!
We wrapped up the session with a few more family shots, then let them enjoy the rest of their family celebrations throughout the day!

We are so fortunate to have had the opportunity to photograph the Alghoul family and we look forward to capturing more of their memories in the future.
