Extended family portrait session – Melrose, MA

From holiday dresses to everyday wear, exchanging gifts, smooshing together, and trying to shrink Gerard, this family was a blast! While I got to meet some of this crew last year, it was so nice to meet the mom of a good friend of mine and photograph her with her beautiful family. The kiddos are one year older than the last time I saw them which meant that the older kids definitely had very important places to be as soon as the session was over and the younger kids tolerated the chilly weather better than they might have a year ago. And the parents – well, they are still smiling and I’m quite sure that there was some dancing going on behind me that would have been bribe-worthy had I been fast enough to turn around and snap the shutter (ahem, Gerard).

Thanks again, Amy and crew! Donna, it was so lovely to meet you and know that I have a special place in my heart for all mamas with your first name.
