Evanston & Chicago Extended Family Photography

I know a lot of photographers who shudder at the idea of shooting an entire extended family session – but I have to say – I literally LOVE these shoots!! Maybe it’s the fact I’m a mom now and I can see my whole family in my clients’ families when I do these sessions…. doting grandparents, adorable grandkids, the special relationship nieces & nephews have with their uncles and aunts… all of it. I just love capturing these moments for the whole family to have with all the people they love!!

So clearly I was soooo happy when I heard from one of my favorite families (whose weddings we’ve photographed HERE and HERE) – for a chance to see them all again for an extended family photo session during a little “staycation” they were having at grandma & grandpa’s house recently!! Here they are in all their sweetness!!!
