What a beautiful family! I had so much fun photographing this extended family. With a total of 17 people, that's including 9 children ranging in ages from 3-months to 9 years old, I sure had my hands full.
I've known The Baxter Family for quite a few years now and I was so excited when they contacted me about setting up this large family session. They have a few homes in the Lavallette, New Jersey area, so they thought a beach session would be perfect for their family.
We had the most gorgeous September afternoon. It was nice and sunny and cool. The town was pretty quite as a majority of the seasonal folks left for the winter, so the beach was peaceful and beautiful. I was able to get lots of individual family shots and then I brought everyone together for some large family shots. The hardest part was the "cousins" picture...trying to get 9 children to all look in one direct is pretty impossible but I love the candid's I got of them being themselves!
The families got to put their toes in the sand and enjoy some family time together! I'm so happy I was able to capture these moments for them!
