We had a beautiful afternoon for the quick outdoor session with the Wolff family. It’s been 9 months since I’ve seen half of the crew for little Miss Kennedy’s newborn portraits in the studio. It was my first time meeting the rest of the family. The four kids did fantastic. As always, the candid ones with grandma and grandpa are always my favorite.
Last Christmas BJ reached out to me to purchase a session for a gift for his family. Since everyone in his family is spread across several states, it took a little time to finally get everyone together but it finally took place. We had so much fun at their family home in Sun Prairie. Even Eddie the dog joined in. I think their family photo with everyone rubbing grandpa’s head is by far my favorite extended family photo I’ve ever taken. So many laughs by all.
It was a beautiful summer evening when I met the Meyer family out for their extended family session. Erik had contacted me months to set up this session as a gift for his parents 40th wedding anniversary. Full family picture are always great ideas for gifts even if the logistics of getting multiple family schedules to line up is a little tricky. This is a gift grandma and grandpa will treasure forever. And something the children will love to look back on.
Kathy contacted me a couple months back to set up an extended family session in the studio. All of her children and their families would be in Windsor for Thanksgiving and she wanted a full family picture before they all headed back to their homes in other states. Luckily the new studio has enough space for the 7 adults and 3 young boys.
I’ve had several secret sessions this spring that were being used as Mother’s Day gifts. This is a great idea and was so much fun with these three boys. They are cousins and I’m sure grandma is going to love her gift.
I’ve been trying to get these cousins together since there were only three of them. Now that there are five girls, we had to get them into the studio for a quick mini session. Having 5 girls in my small studio was not the easiest task considering the youngest is 3 months old and there are two 2 year olds in the group. I’m so glad I was also able to capture a couple special pictures of mother and daughter for the two that were in town from Minnesota.
It’s always fantastic when people contact me for a session with their extended family. Last year I photographed Julie’s family but this year her sister Nicole contacted me to do a full family session. I always love to include grandparents whenever possible and if that meant fighting 90 degree temps and two 3-year olds and two 5-year olds, I was up for it. You know it was a successful session when Grandma Linda says “That was fun.”
One of my favorite things to do at sessions is include extended family. For this session we had cousins together as young as 2 months old to 6 years old. We also included grandma and grandpa. They were picture perfect on the farm.
It’s always special when I have two sisters contact me asking if they can do their family pictures together so they can get pictures of all the cousins together. This was a group of four girls with ages ranging from 1 year to 8 years old. These two families were too much fun.
