tis the season for family photos!  this is the first of a few large family sessions i shot this winter.  you’ll recognize some of the family members like abbie, sloane and reid.  it was their grandma, april, who put this whole thing together.  i’ve known april for what seems like my whole life so i was excited to be a part of this large get together.  it was fun to get a shot of this growing family all at once–even if it was a bit chilly!  but we had to do it because some of the families had traveled from out of town.  what troopers everyone was.  it didn’t even seem to phase the kids.  everyone’s personalities still shone through despite the weather to make for some great shots.  here are a few of my faves.

that’s reid and sloane; the cousins from the ‘nati.  they’ve both gotten so big!

i’d never met these out-of-town cousins before but, as you can see, it didn’t take long for us to feel comfortable together and have some fun!

i hope to see you all again and wish you a happy, healthy holiday season.
