Recent extended family photos St. Louis family photographer!  My family recently celebrated our matriarch.  My husband’s Grandmother turned 94 this year and we were fortunate to all be together to celebrate it!  There were 22 of us total together for dinner.  During that time I suggested that after dinner we go out into the back yard and take a family photo together.  What good is having a photographer in the family if we can’t spontaneously take family portraits?

My favorite is the hugging and fun shot.  This by far tells the best story of who we are as a family (complete with crying babies)!  We are most definitely a hugging family!

Then of course we had to photograph Gigi (as we all call her) with her two beautiful daughters otherwise known as the crazy ladies!  Can you see the resemblance?

Then all the grandsons (because we don’t have girls in this family).  I love this photo so much, notice Gigi is now drinking from the flask that one of the boys pulled out of his pocket!

We have fun together as a family and these photos are priceless to us.  Having photos of everyone together is wonderful, but having these fun photographs that actually capture who we are as a family are priceless.  I can’t leave out the photo of all of us girls.  We had to marry into the family because as I noted earlier, we don’t do girls in this family (with the exception of little Isabella).
