Here in Texas we have FINALLY dropped out of the 100’s into the 80’s; so basically scarves, boots, and pumpkin everything we are waiting for you with open arms! With this “fall” weather in the air, it’s the perfect time to share this extended family session!
Does it surprise anyone to know this is one of the photos they chose to print on a gorgeous canvas?? I don’t know if their smiles can get any bigger here, and I absolutely love it!
Of course my goal with extended family portraits is to capture that one photo with everyone smiling and looking at the camera for the fireplace mantle, hallway, or gallery wall in your home. We all want to remember the day we got dressed up and looked camera ready. But I also love the moments in between. The kisses, snuggles, smiles, and giggles. After all isn’t that what family is: our Sunday best version, and then our inside jokes and funny expressions that make up all of who we are.
In all of my family sessions I always try to make sure I get a photo of the parents solo. After all, this whole thing started because two people fell in love right? We can’t forget where it all began!
The loveliest patch of sun lit up this background halfway through our shot and made the best spot for the individual photos of each family unit.
This young lady wanted her own close up and I was all for it!
Bates family, thank you so much for having me photograph your family!
