The holiday time of year brings families together from all parts of the country. That makes it a perfect time to create extended family portraits of the entire group, as well as some fresh smaller family portraits, all in the same session.
Linda was thrilled to have her daughters, their husbands, and the grandkids in town for Thanksgiving, and we planned a session to take place in beautiful Chagrin Falls. Chilly temps had us scrambling for a back up location- the atrium area at the Cleveland Museum of Art. It was nice to have an alternate that provided lots of natural light and clean scenery. Those of you who know me, know that I always work with a little step ladder, and that is contraband at the museum (along with reflectors, flash, etc!). This may be the first session that I did on tip toes.
This lovely family did agree to come with me to the lagoon area for a quick family group shot with the natural scenery. I’m so glad that they indulged me. Yes, it was chilly. But the outdoor family group image was selected to be printed on canvas, and will become a focal point in Linda’s decor.
