This big family (grandma, grandpa, their five kids and their spouses, and then eight grandchildren) had their extended family session booked for a cold January morning. Although it was raining, they decided to go ahead with it! It's hard for extended families to reschedule and also, who knew what weather the next January date would bring along. I was happy that we were at Stewart Farms so that we could utilize the veranda on the heritage house. This means there was a lot less background variety but all the kiddos stayed dry and somewhat warmer!
I was friends with the middle sister, Tanya, growing up. We have not seen each other in years and it was great to see her whole family with families of their own now. Three of the families have a three year old and one year old...that's so fun and a little wild:)
Here are photos of a few of the families. As a heads up, I have you sign a client release when I take your photos. You do not need to sign it and therefore your photos are not put online (in case anyone was wondering!). So, there are no photos posted here of the full group or grandparents with grandkids etc but not to worry, I got a lot of them!
Thank you all for braving the weather. All of the kids did so well, I think the smarties were a great idea:) Good to see you all again!
