I have to admit...extended family sessions can be intimidating. Having a large group present means more individual and groups shots, which requires efficiency and careful planning. I have to tell you, this family was incredible! I think all of their photos were made better because they were all there together. They constantly kept one another smiling and laughing. They helped each other prepare for being behind the camera and transitioned seamlessly, allowing me to get more shots to create more beautiful images than I thought would be possible in such a short amount of time! I can't help but think how lucky these kids are to grow up in such a connected and caring family.
I also want to send out a huge thank you to my friend Joy Ellison for assisting me with this session. Doing something you love is always fun, and having someone you love join in makes it even better!
