I love photographing families with older children. As our kids get older we seem to forget that they continue to change and grow from year to year just as much as they did when they were littles! As kids get older it is increasingly harder to get everyone together for family photos. Trust me, I know. I managed to drag my whole crew out a couple of years ago and frankly it is time we did it again. You want to know why? Because these are the priceless heirlooms you will pass down to your great-grandchildren as your family history. While that great family selfie on your phone is fun…that is not what your grandchildren will hang in their home in 40 years to remember their family (well, I hope not!). Moral of the story, your kids are never too old to capture the love your family has for one another.
I had the pleasure of photographing Anderson earlier this year for his senior portraits, view images from his session here. Shortly after Anderson’s session his mom contacted me to get on my schedule for fall with the whole family! I was thrilled. Check out more of their lifestyle session below.
