Extended Family Portraits

THE MITTELSTAEDT FAMILY // TRAVERSE CITY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

 

This sweet family invited me over to their home last Sunday because they were all in one state, in one place, together. And with two very new (and very adorable) babies in tow it was such a special time to capture! Thank you so much for having me!

 

AN EXTENDED FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION IN CHARLEVOIX // NORTHERN MICHIGAN VACATION PHOTOGRAPHER

 

I’m loving the number of family sessions that I’ve been doing this Summer! I’m here for it. It doesn’t have to take up a ton of time - it can be a quick, uncomplicated shoot at a vacation rental. Memories I made with my own family as a kid during our time “up north” are full of nostalgia and have honestly influenced my life enormously (including moving up here full time). So I’m beyond happy that I can capture and preserve these memories for other families. Like the seasons, time is fleeting - it’s so cliche but true. Document these times together because they go by so fast. Thanks for inviting me you guys!

 

AN EXTENDED FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION ON SPIDER LAKE // TRAVERSE CITY, MI

 

It can be hard to get grown up siblings together often. I know that from personal experience with our own family. So when you do have that rare family vacation where everyone is together: the grandparents, parents + kids, it’s a prime time to get some photos taken. I love doing this for families and this group was absolutely wonderful. It was a super playful session with superhero poses, marshmallow mouths, and silly faces and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thanks for having me you guys!

 

THE DONAHUE & LOVE FAMILY // OLD MISSION PENINSULA FAMILY PORTRAITS

 

Leslie & Bob are former wedding clients of ours and so I was super excited to hear from Leslie about a family trip they had planned in Northern Michigan!  They were coming up north with her brother and sister-in-law whose baby was born within months of their new little one.  Bob also proposed to Leslie at the Old Mission Lighthouse, so that made these photos extra special.  What a sweet time for this family.  I was honored to capture some shots for them!
