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!

Most families will plan for at least one family portrait during the years the children are young.  Maybe it is simply the photo quickly scheduled in time for the Christmas card mailing or an annual professional portrait.  Either way it gets done because the parents are in charge of the exquisitely dressed young children.  Then, in the blink of an eye, the children grow up!  They drive themselves to activities, they attend college or work in another town and they are busy!  Getting the family together - in coordinated clothing - is not simple any more.  This is an even more powerful time to capture your family!  The next time you have a family photo taken, it may be at your child's wedding, include fancy clothing and an additional person.  Yes, life does get more complicated.

In the months before their youngest child graduated from high school, the Penhale Family gathered together for a Family Portrait Session.  It was a blessing to watch this family interact with such love and the kind of laughter that can only happen within a close family.  Now, they have a beautiful wall display in their home to remind them of this day!

 

 

"Can't stop looking at our amazing pictures, and can't thank you enough for how well you captured my whole family.  It was wonderful working with you and we really appreciate all the time and work that goes into the finish product, thank you, thank you, thank you!"   - Kate Penhale

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!

Growing up on the beach in South Florida, I have loved Lily Pulitizer and her bright, preppy prints for a lifetime!  I also love her story - in 1959, Lily Pulitzer, a young and very wealthy housewife, opened a juice stand in Palm Beach, Florida to keep herself busy.  This new endeavor led to juice stains on her clothing so she went to a seamstress to create designs that would disguise the stains.  Pretty soon, people wanted to buy her juice and her dresses!  This iconic brand has been seen on everyone from Jacqueline Kennedy to Suri Kruse.  For those of us living in Colorado, her resortwear has only been available online.  But on April 19, Target will begin offering its exclusive Lilly Pulitzer Collection!  And of the 250 items, nearly 200 of them are priced under $30!  So, when you feel the need to embrace your inner beach girl, head to Target and pick up a little something that will make you think you are wading in the warm Atlantic Ocean!

Here is a glimpse of what will soon be in Target stores!  Click here to see the whole Look Book!
