Minnesota Winter Family Photos – Thomas Family

The winter cold is not an excuse for having your family photos taken. The Thomas family had all their kids and grandkids together for the holidays. As we all know, it’s no easy task to coordinate having the entire family together in one place at one time. Commonly, we forget what a great opportunity it is to get family photos. Although the majority of my family portraits are with small families, I LOVE the opportunity to photograph large family gatherings. It is such a great way to document and remember these special times.

This family’s backyard backed up to a beautiful forest so we used it as a backdrop. It was cold that day (especially for the littles ones). We planned the large family photo from their walkout basement, I posed up everyone and we ran outside. I estimated we had about 90 seconds and that was pretty accurate. I let everyone run inside and I worked with smaller groupings till everyone was photographed. It was fun session and the result is some beautiful, memorable family photos to cherish for years and years to come 🙂
