They range in age from nearly newborn to nearly 90.

The five women and  their most recent arrival  sat for a portrait to commemorate the birth of the youngest female member of a Langley family that now spans five generations.

In the photograph, great, great grandmother Jessie Hinman, who will turn 90 next month, cuddles baby Ariana Cowdy, born on Jan. 10, and is surrounded by her daughter Shirley Caplette, granddaughter Kari Briggs and great granddaughters Amanda (Ariana’s mom) and Sara.

The opportunity to capture an image of all five generations together was too good to pass up, said Briggs.

“It’s such a great treasure to have this photograph of all of us together,” said Briggs, whose grandmother still keeps her own home in Langley.

Born in Saskatchewan, Mrs. Hinman moved to Langley from Abbotsford when she married in 1946 and raised four children.

Six grandchildren, two great granddaughters and, now, a great great granddaughter round out the family.
