I absolutely love when families come together for the holidays to spend time with one another. The Scalas family came to Bend for Thanksgiving from all over, including New Zealand!! When family literally flies across the world to be together, family photographs are a must! One of my favorite things at a family reunion session is capturing all the cousins with Grandma and Grandpa… so after one group photo I got the kids to cuddle their grandparents. It was so sweet! Of course we photographed each family together as well as the cousins together and kids on their own. These kids were so cute. It’s fun to be outside in a beautiful location for photos, even if the kids get distracted and want to play in the nature, I mean, who wouldn’t? I love all the natural smile of these kiddos. I ended their session with a special parent time to capture beautiful photographs of the parents together – it’s not all about the kids. The main stars of this session are their amazing group portraits. Everyone has natural smiles, laughter and you can see that they are all very happy to be together!
