I originally met Mrs. B through a professional headshot event that we had held in partnership with the Bar Foundation of Montgomery County. Mr. B said that we made her look like a movie star in her professional headshot, and that it sealed the deal on this fall family pictures session! At the professional headshot event, Mrs. B. had been telling me about her 2 young grandchildren and their lack of quality family photography. She had to check with her daughter to see if she would be up for a family photography session, and sure enough, all was arranged.
It was just two days after Thanksgiving, and we headed to Cabin John Regional Park in Bethesda, Maryland. The trees were bare, but the setting still beautiful for their fall family pictures. While the youngest B was all smiles and laughs, his older brother called for us to bring out our fabulous big bubble gun and noisemaker, which resulted in a super-interesting, bubble-filled extended family portrait unlike any other!
While we also had no-bubble versions, Mr. & Mrs. B chose the bubble-filled family portrait for their custom-framed 20x30 wall portrait, along with two other family portraits as canvas gallery wraps, to complete a 3-piece love grouping for the family room, plus desk prints for themselves and gift prints for family members and friends as holiday gifts.
We're so very thankful to Mr. & Mrs. B for taking the time to both write about their experience with our family photography services on NextDoor (scroll to the end of this post to read their reviews)! Enjoy some more of my favorites from their Bethesda fall family pictures session below!
Do you have grandchildren who are changing every day, without professional family photography to remember their earlier years by? Don't let another day pass without preserving these priceless memories.
When J. first contacted me about extended family portraits, she told me that they’d been trying for a nice, good family photo for years. This extended family portrait session was to be a gift for her parents… how thoughtful! A few weeks later when I met J. and her mom in person for their portrait planning/design meeting, we worked out the different groupings her mom wanted. Everyone together – J’s parents, J and her three siblings, partners, and children – was of course the most important. Then came grandparents and grandchildren, and the grandchildren together, and various other extended family and multi-generational groupings. The timing for the extended family portraits was a little bit tricky since J’s brother is away at college, and we had to wait for him to come home to visit. We lucked out on the date of the photography session with beautiful weather and a gorgeous sunset at one of J’s mom’s favorite spots – Ida Lee Park in Leesburg, Virginia! The first image below of everyone together was our first pose. The funny thing is that J’s parents told me later that they thought everybody standing in a line couldn’t possibly look very nice… and it turned out to be their favorite photograph of all thirteen of them!
Have you or your parents been trying, to no avail, for a beautiful family portrait for years of all the generations? The holidays are the perfect time for extended family and multi-generational portraits, as family members travel home from near and far.
Just contact the family portrait photographer here to begin a conversation about your extended family portraits.
As our multi-generational portrait photography session time drew near, menacing grey clouds gathered above. But as we all know, it’s not an easy feat to draw five families together for an extended, multi-generation family portrait photography session, so the K’s decided that the show must go on! As luck would have it, it didn’t sprinkle on us too hard, and before the hour was up, the rain had stopped and the sky began to clear. And…I love the drops of rain that surround grandma and grandpa in one of the favorite portraits of the afternoon!
Sometimes, family reunions only come around once in a blue moon. Don't miss out on the chance to remember.
ust 2 1/2 weeks ago, I drove up to Annapolis, MD for the Willard family’s annual reunion. With 7 individual families and 36 people across FOUR generations (!), the Willards are a pretty amazing and wonderful family! In fact, I must admit that I was secretly envious of how many people they have to call family… I had a blast meeting and photographing everyone for these multi-generational family portraits, especially the super cute little ones and the fun-loving teenagers! I just finished designing a 40-page storybook album for Mrs. Willard, and will post those images in the coming weeks!
