Family is one of the most important things in life. Especially around the holidays, it’s nice to be surrounded by family. Nothing beats the celebration, traditions, and happy memories family brings during the holiday season.
Extended Family Fun
As we get older, it’s so much harder to get the whole family together. Everyone begins their own lives, careers, and families and conflicting schedules can make it seem almost impossible to get everyone in the same place at the same time. I recently got to capture a session for a family who knows all about the hardships of conflicting schedules. One member of the family did a two year mission trip in Chile. Another member is currently living and working in Mexico City. Others have jobs, kids, and hobbies that keep them busy throughout the year. I am so appreciative that they took the time to celebrate the love they share.
Celebrating the Importance of Family
Regardless of all the obstacles, we finally got all nine of them together for family photos at their home and it was so much fun! They looked picture perfect in front of the house, and we got some silly poses in the backyard that really showed off their outgoing personalities. My absolute favorite shot was when the whole family donned tacky Christmas sweaters and struck a pose in front of the garage. Hilarious!
It’s so important to spend time with family and capture priceless memories over the years. As time goes on, it can be challenging to get everyone together in the same place, but when it happens its magical, and totally worth it. I know this sweet family will enjoy these special moments for years to come!
