I went into this session expecting to have a great time, and this extended family did not disappoint! There are some families that just have such a fun carefree demeanor, this is one of those families! They were easy and relaxed, ready for fun, and willing to try any of my shenanigans, even the teen and tween boys, which says a lot about their manners! We met early in the morning for this session and although the grass was extremely dewy, the light was perfect and everyone arrived chipper and ready to play. There may have been a little coaxing on some hugs, but that's to be expected between married couples!
It's particularly interesting to watch extended family dynamics. I really enjoy seeing the interactions of multiple generations. Grandma and grandpa clearly adore their grandkids, and the grandchildren admire and love their grandparents. The kids showed respect and gratitude to their grandparents. It is clear that the roots in this family run deep and strong. This entire family has an ease about them, they are comfortable together, and it is truly clear that they enjoy being with each other. That is such a remarkable gift, to have a family you love and enjoy! There is nothing better!
