Following our tradition from last year, Jessica Paige and I once again exchanged family photo sessions this fall.

I really pushed her out of her comfort zone though when I asked her if she would consider photographing my entire extended family of 22 people.  Even though she doesn’t typically photograph large groups, she didn’t hesitate a second in replying “Of course I will!”

With two siblings that live out of state and six families total who all have busy schedules, it literally took months to figure out a two-hour time period in September that everyone in my family would be able to get together.  After enjoying a few days of mild temperatures we woke up on the morning of our shoot to weather that was humid, muggy and so very HOT (which of course was wonderful for all of the hairstyles that we got up early to work on.)

Since we were working within such a short time period, I helped shoot some of the individual families and children.  By the time it came for Jess to photograph The Arthur Clan, we gave up.  I was too hot, flushed and sweaty for a camera to even come near my face.  Hee!  The good news is that Jess and I have already decided to exchange family sessions again in the spring when we can focus solely on stylized sessions for each other.

My entire family was so thankful that Jess would even attempt to photograph this many people (especially when 10 of them are children) but for us to see the final images that captured the fun we have together?  Absolutely priceless.

And seeing the love between my mom and dad captured so beautifully?  Instant joy for all of us to see.

Jess…I truly can’t even express how much these images mean to me and my entire family.  Thank you so much for taking on our crazy bunch in such a splendid way.

My heart is so full.  ♥
