Brown Family | Scottsdale, Arizona Extended Family Photographer

I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I agreed to take pictures of a family of eleven with two two and a half year olds (born on the same day) and a newborn. I was running around like crazy capturing this family as best I could and loved every minute of it!  I am so incredibly thankful to have met each and everyone of the Brown family and witness the love they have for each other. The toddlers may not have sat very long or posed for many pictures, but they were themselves allowing me to get into their world with my camera.

The highlights for me was the sound of laughter and song. There was so much of it, too! At one point, I was running back and forth behind a fireplace to get the kids' attention. Each time I would disappear, I would stop for a second to listen to this family laughing hysterically and enjoying each other. Then when I would jump out from the wall, I couldn't stop laughing. I think this is the most I've ever laughed during a session.

Towards the end during our last attempt to get a picture of the grandparents with all three grandchildren, someone started to sing "I've Been Working on the Railroad." Everyone started to sing in harmony. It was such a sweet moment for me even though it didn't work with the kids. We still sounded great! And lastly, witnessing the love between each couple was truly amazing. When I left, I kept replaying the previous two hours in my head which reminded me why I do this.

Thank you again, Brown family, for letting me spend the afternoon with you. Enjoy your previews!
