Large family portraits, Columbia City Photographer

Caldwell Extended Family Portraits

These are my favorite family pictures of all time!  I might be a bit partial…because it’s my family.  Take it from me, planning an extended family portrait is worth the time and effort.  While it may be difficult to coordinate outfits, schedules, and you can count on at least one person being hangry, it is […]

Winter Family Portraits in the Snow

Winter family portraits can be tricky.  It is all about timing and a little bit of luck.  The perfect recipe for family portraits in the snow is a fresh snow (at least 3 inches), no wind so it sticks to the trees, temps between 20-32 degrees, and a flexible schedule.  These family snow portraits were […]

Johnson Family Portraits

I love photographing large families! I love families that take the time to get together and coordinate for a beautiful family portrait. While the hours leading up to the session may be stressful, once everyone is together, ready, and the funny jokes start everyone loosens up a bit. This family was absolutely fantastic to work […]

Meinika Family Portraits

I have known the Meinika/Trier Family for about 10 years.  Before all of us had kiddos of our own we would go on huge family vacations with The Meinika Family.  They are blessed to have a very talented photographer of their own among the family; that is why it was even more of an honor […]

I mean…that takes a lot of time and effort! I love families […]
