Extended family sessions used to scare the crap out of me! Toddlers used to scare me more.. let alone multiple toddlers eek haha
It was the thought of getting everyone in one photo with all their eyes open and everyone looking somewhat happy.. and comfortable, all at the same time. That seemed near impossible! But.. then one day I just stopped trying for 'the perfect image' and just starting focusing on capturing the family.. who they are, how they interact, the love and laughter they share.. and when I did that, extended family sessions became probably the most fun sessions to capture.
So many personalities, so many funny conversations and getting to share in a big, happy family gathering always has me leaving 'work' on a high. (although my job never really feels like work! except the editing part..)
This family session was amazing! We laughed and laughed.. the day and lighting was on point and I left thinking 'when my kids grow up I want this kind of relationship and to make these kind of memories too'.
