There’s many happy, fun memories and feelings looking back at this extended family session at Mainprize Lake! They were such a wonderful bunch to spend time with and photograph!! We met up at the beginning of their family reunion week so it was a great way to start off their time together at the lake. Going through these photos again I’m longing for hot, sunny summer days like this. There’s so many reasons that summer is the best and my favorite season of the year!
There are connections for their family to Mainprize Lake and being as many of them were staying there it was a meaningful location that worked well. Everyone was amazing to work with! The kids are adorable and did so well including the newest family member. A very new, sweet baby girl. As such a large group and on a hot day, they impressed me with how well the shoot went! It was really special and enjoyable to capture their beautiful family. Of course heading to the beach towards the end of our time together was a great way to cool down and have fun splashing in the water. We had the beach to ourselves and the light was beautiful. Summer zips by as do the years so being asked to preserve fleeting moments with photographs is an honor! I’m pretty sure I smiled the whole drive home and felt grateful for the wonderful people that photography connects me to!!
Next week I plan to share this Dad/Grampa’s twin brother + family that I photographed that same week. This was a fun start to my week photographing Pederson families!
