It is such an honor to photograph extended families. Over the holidays I was contacted by a whole bunch of families to see if I could photograph their whole gang while everyone was in town celebrating together. I think it is so important that these families make it a priority to take time out of their visit to snap some pictures together. I come from a big family, and although we are together all the time, we hardly ever take pictures with everyone in them. And when we do get one of those pictures, it always becomes my favorite photograph of the year. So, I am always eager to work around everyone's schedules and fit these shoots in, even if everyone is only in town for a weekend.
The Halberg family was incredible to work with. They kept each other laughing the whole time. I love seeing aunts and uncles love on their nieces and nephews and this was certainly the case with this bunch. I was exceptionally grateful for their fun interactions when it came to getting smiles out of middle school boys! All those kiddos absolutely adored Grandma and Grandpa and were eager to cuddle up with them any chance they got. It really was an honor to be a part of their family's Thanksgiving celebration, and I hope you cherish these photographs for years to come, Halberg family!
