It was such a pleasure to spend some time with this wonderful family. I take on a very small number of extended family sessions each year because, frankly, it can get a little hairy :). However, when my friend, Melissa, told me that her husband's whole family was going to be in town for Easter weekend I jumped at the chance. Family all being together is so worth celebrating. Musette, the sweet grandmother, told me that it had been five years since they'd all been at the same place at the same time. They were an awesome bunch, just really easygoing and happy to be together. We kept this session pretty simple, trying mostly to get different types of group shots.

Here are all the cousins. They're a great crew.

Here are the grandparents, Musette and Bob. They have every reason to be proud with such a beautiful and loving family.

Love this one with all the different sizes and colors, the watched, the chippy nailpolish.

When I asked Musette if it was a ton of work to raise four boys, she just beamed and said, "Not at all...they were so easy." I wonder if I am going to forget the craziness and mess of little boys when my sons grow up :) .

The whole gang together. Okay, just have to hop in and point out how well the clothes go together for a big family. They definitely went with warm spring colors but I love how everyone had their own styles, textures and look. It's cohesive but not exactly the same. (Yay to the daughters-in-law who I know pulled that together ;) )!

Then we had a few silly shots. Sweet Emma couldn't keep her nose on unless she leaned on her grandma's head.

I love a family who can have a good time...and it's always fun for the kids to play around a bit too!

They're rocking the glasses, though they nearly were blinded by them.

Uh-oh, we know who the uncool brother without shades is. Sad, Rob.

Pretty girls.

Musette asked for one with her cousin, who she said was as close as a dear sister to her.

Then we left the parents to visit in the sunshine while the cuzzies and I played around for a few minutes.

They were all about the peeps, and I am all about positive re-enforcement. Having your picture taken is FUN!!
