Hudson Gardens Littleton Extended Family Photos Celebrating 40 Year Wedding Anniversary
Today I’m sharing one of the largest Littleton extended family photos I’ve done in my career so far. The family featured on the journal today reminds me a lot of my own family. My dad was the oldest of 7 and I am the oldest of 7 so we had a ton of cousins and aunts and uncles when I was growing up. The family I photographed earlier this month got in touch with me because Grandma and Grandpa are celebrating 40 years of marriage and they wanted to get some extended family photos created as part of their celebration plans. They remind me of my family because this family has 6 kids who are all grown up and are starting their own families and two of those families also have 6 kids! Last summer I photographed a family with 8 kids under the age of 6 but I think this family may have them beat for sheer number of little kids to wrangle all in one photo. It wasn’t easy, but I feel really good about our results!

Hudson Gardens ended up being the perfect location to capture this family together. I had us start a little earlier than I normally like to because there were a lot of family combinations to work with and I wanted to make sure we didn’t run out of time. That meant that we had to start photographing while the sun was still out and pretty bright. Hudson Gardens had a really great shady garden area with lovely bright flowers that we could work with while we waited a little bit for the sun to start going down and get a little easier to work with. One family wore hot pink which matched the flower beds perfectly. And others wore shades of blue and yellow which looked awesome with the flower bed with lots of yellow flowers growing in it. It worked well since we didn’t have to walk long distances and waste time to get some good variety for their pictures. I have a lot of favorites from this one, but I can’t share them all so I tried very hard to narrow them down as best I could. Below are just a tiny fraction of my personal favorites.
