I had to check the time on my phone again. I was in disbelief.
Had we really just managed to capture a series of great portraits for an extended family of 16?!? In less than 30 minutes? With four children under the age of 6!
“You all are AMAZING! We got it!” I told them with a smile. “Let’s go take the kids out back and we’ll get some cute shots of them too.”
Family portraits with large groups can be daunting–for the family AND the photographer. But these folks were so kind and happy to be together–everything just flowed 🙂 A couple of stools, a few quick directions, pop the kids in there and “ta-da”! Four generations of love in these photos. And I could feel it that day. From the moment they welcomed me until the second we said goodbye…and what’s even more lovely is that they made me feel a part of it all. Whenever I’m around large families, gathered together, I can’t help but think about what a wonderful gift it is. Thank you for sharing yours with me!
