When Erin reached out to inquire about a December family session I had to think twice. It’s HARD to get all my adultish kids together so I truly value ALL the hours I get with them. That means I have to be really motivated to give up even ONE of them to do a photo session. The more I talked to her, though, the more I saw how much SHE values family time too. I could also see how important these pictures would be to her and her family so I said yes pretty quickly.
I am THRILLED that I did. This is one of those sessions that just fills my heart and reminds me exactly why I love doing extended family sessions. Sure they can be chaotic and crazy because there are so many moving part. They can also be so much fun because there is teasing and interaction happening all around me while I’m photographing everybody. It honestly makes my job so easy when family members have so much fun together!
We snuck this session in on December 23rd. (Christmas Adam is you ask ME!) We got to commemorate the first holiday in this new Suncadia house and we also got to celebrate this whole big crazy crew being together for Christmas. That is always worth celebrating!
Here are just a few of my favorites. Trust me when I say that culling their pictures down to just the very best was the part that took the LONGEST when working on these pictures!
