I live just 10 minutes away from my parents and they still live in the house I grew up in. My brother, sister, and their families also live near. All together there are 17 of us. It can be a little chaotic when we are all together, but mostly it's pretty amazing and I am grateful to have siblings, nieces, nephews, and my parents so close. I took these pictures last fall right after my Dad's 70th birthday and they were all taken right on their property. I adore these images of my parents and today is their 49th Anniversary! I owe so much of who I am today to these two. Their love for each other and for our family is contagious. They are quick to help and serve others. They love life and adventure and have a deep faith and love for the Lord. They have given us all such a beautiful example of what it means to unconditionally love one another. I am forever grateful.
Happy Anniversary you two lovebirds!!
And after photos of my parents I followed up with mini sessions for everyone else! First, my sister and her family...
My brother and his family...
Longmeier family in 2013.
And these group shots of all 17 of us made possible by my tripod and timer...the light kept changing and it was not easy! So after about a million and one attempts we settled on this one. And I love the last image of all the cousins together. I love my people!
When we first met on the phone, Kelli and I discovered we had about 1,000 connections between the two of us so it was like seeing an old friend by the time we met in person!
Most of my fall family sessions take place in natural areas with lots of changing leaves, so getting a chance to shoot an urban session was a nice change of pace!
I truly love working with clients year after year and watching families grow - this is session #5 for the Solberg family!
I am pretty sure my 6 year old would move in with this family if I let her.
Wow! We couldn’t have picked a better fall day for this family session!
A family session at home was the perfect way to photograph this busy family of four.
I think we encountered a record number of weather patterns during this family session - sun, wind, and even intermittent rain fell throughout the evening
Watching Ruby take care of and hold her little brother was my favorite part of this session!
I received this text from my client the day or so after their session…
With 3/4 of their kids in their 20's now, it's getting harder and harder for the Alley Family to all be in the same place.
