The More the Merrier ~ Midvale Family Photographer

A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing an extended family session near Midvale. All the kids and grandkids were home for the holidays and they wanted a beautiful portrait of everyone together. The referral for the session came from Slice of Life Photography, who is the family photographer for one of the families back in Michigan. SILP found me through the "Find a Photographer" link on the PPA website. My membership in Professional Photographers of America is my commitment to my clients that I will run a professional, profitable business and am devoted to continuing education and learning all I can about my craft.

With seven adults and eight little ones ranging from toddler to tween, it was a busy morning. But, I'm used to lots of little ones around as my husband and I both have large families. It's also neat to see all the different personalities when you get everyone together. We had some shy ones, some silly ones and some happy ones. And even a little comedian. He kept us laughing with his knock knock jokes. Thanks Mr. J! You helped keep things light and fun!

Due to the weather being so bitter cold, we decided to keep things inside, but the lighting was beautiful thanks to two huge windows. I love being able to photograph families in their own homes or a place they love as they tend to be more comfortable and relaxed during their session.

I have to give a special shout out to my friend and assistant Jodie! She was the extra two hands I needed to get all the kids around and everyone together. Thanks so much!

And for the C and A families: I hope you made wonderful holiday memories, enjoyed your portrait experience and cherish these special memories we captured of all of you.

It was a pleasure to meet all of you!

 Isn't she darling? And here are her big brothers and sisters.

Two sweet little girls.

 This little guy was shy at first, but he sure warmed up when his momma started being silly.
We had some great little giggles.

a complimentary 5X7 gift print from me!
