If you have a child who has graduated high school, you know how difficult it is to get everyone together for a family portrait.  Well, by the time you are celebrating your 50th wedding anniversary you may have to rally 19 people to get a complete family photo!  That is exactly what the Magnuson family did for their recent milestone anniversary.  They miraculously gathered together family members from as far away as Florida to document how their family has grown.  This family photo includes children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Even the newest member of the family, a beautiful newborn baby girl, was a part of the event!

Such a family portrait is what my Extended Family Sessions are all about!  During these sessions, we photograph the entire family and then focus on important family groups and individuals.  Besides getting a great group shot, the goal is to capture family relationships.  Families are everchanging and often it is only during a special event or celebration that everyone can gather together.  The Magnuson Family had only two hours to capture everyone so we photographed them in the bright sunny time of day.  Fortunately, I had two fabulous assistants who held a large scrim and created extra shade where we needed it!

As you can imagine, coordinating clothing for such a large group is not easy!  This family did an incredible job of bringing together colors that harmonize.  As a result, they have a beautiful family portrait and a gorgeous album filled with images that they will treasure for generations to come!

Twins are always something special.  Those of us who are not a twin or a parent of twins are genuinely fascinated by two children with the same exact birth date.  I love photographing twins and have been very fortunate to photograph the Rosenzweig family several times.  I honestly believe that Brenna and Todd Rosenzweig are superheroes.  Both are successful professionals, Todd in denistry and Brenna in psychology.  Both are athletic and love to travel - a lot!  And yet these busy parents have made it look easy to keep their now 4-year-old twins on a schedule of naps, meals and activities.  What they are doing is working beautifully because these little ones are two of the happiest children I know!

Last Summer we  planned a Family Portrait Session to capture the twins personalities at the age of three.  Enjoy their family photos below but beware:  they are full of cuteness!

I met this lovely family when their daughter, Lily, became one of my 2015 Senior Models.  I immediately fell in love with them all!  If you know the Taft family, you completely understand why.  You kind of just want to hang around them because they are so, well, just incredibly nice!

When we began planning their Family Session the scenic Cache La Poudre River seemed like the perfect location since Mr. Taft is an avid fisherman.   Once this was decided, we worked on clothing options for each member of the family that would coordinate with the greens and blues of the river and the plans to redecorate the family room where the photos would be displayed.  Mrs. Taft and her daughters did an amazing job of pulling it all together!

 The day of their Family Portrait Session began with styling appointments at Trios Aveda Salon and Spa for Mom and her daughters.  It was pouring rain when they arrived at the studio for their professional make up application with Sara Dozier of MAC Cosmetics but these ladies stayed dry thanks to Dad and his umbrella.  What a trooper, serving as shuttle driver and protector of the newly styled hair!  Thankfully when we arrived at the river, the sun was shining!  It was even warm enough that standing in the river didn't make our feet freeze!

Next year, both girls will be away at college and I love knowing that they have beautiful canvases in their family room to remind them of this day spent together.

The day arrives for your Family Portrait Session and you are a mix of excitement and trepidation.  It is a perfect Colorado sunny day.  Together, we have planned the details of your session from location to clothing to scheduling it after little Johnny's nap.  So why the trepidation? I often find that families are worried about getting that perfect shot, you know the one where everyone is staring at the camera with a perfect smile.  And, of course, we get those shots.  That is my job.  But during a Family Portrait session, other things happen, too.  Often, these are the images that tell more about your family's personality. And these are the images that become cherished memories, the ones everyone remembers and talks about for years to come.  

The Manning family selected this image as their favorite family portrait and it will be on display in their home.  I love this image of the Manning's!

 

Family sessions are fun and we goof around A LOT!  So...this image also happened.  And will be part of their family story forever.  This one makes me smile!  Actually, I think I doubled over laughing when it happened!
