Extended families

Charlottesville, VA and surrounding areas

My style for capturing extended families is a lot like that of my regular family sessions. We do lots of natural posing and breakdowns for each smaller grouping, cousins, grandparents, siblings, the whole bit. 

We also have fun. Keep it natural. Incorporate some fun activities like preparing a meal or opening presents or playing a game. After all, some of the best photos we cherish of our families are those that capture their spirit through the way we connect with them. 

That means, yes, grandpa can hold his martini and yes, dogs are family, too.

It probably doesn't happen a lot. It's probably big and loud and messy and hilarious and a little dramatic. But so fun.

When you all get together... it's a big deal.

 I am over the moon thrilled with these! I cannot think of a more precious gift!

We all love them SOOO MUCH!!! It definitely brought us so much closer . We were all saying how we have NEVER had that much fun before as a family…EVER! We can’t thank you enough for capturing those moments.

We chose a session as a Christmas gift for my parents. I was worried about just dealing with the whole family (8 adults, 4 grandkids, 1 grandmother) and having it be a non-stress event for my parents, but the experience ended up being wonderful on all accounts! - Ben 


Nobody needs another harddrive filled with a million files. That's why every collection includes a print credit for you to use towards (your choice of) gorgeous keepsakes like fine art prints and albums. 

Keepsakes with every session.
