Huggett Family • Sneak Peek!

Shhhh… it’s a surprise! That’s right, this was a surprise extended family photo session for Nana on her birthday! What a perfect gift, because what more could a grandmother want than to be with her family and get photographs of them on her birthday?!

This beautiful extended family all got together in the mountains to celebrate a very special lady’s birthday! They surprised Nana with this photo session and throughout the session very sweetly kept wishing her a happy birthday! She was grinning ear to ear through the entire session! It was a wonderful!

When I arrived at the family’s mountain home I was greeted by two of the daughters who set up the surprise. They greeted me, and then told me that when I pulled up Nana saw me and said, “Do we know her?” When they told her why I was there she smiled, touched up her hair and came out ready for photos! It was so sweet that they knew she would LOVE this idea!

Since we were in the mountains I wanted to take advantage of the mountain backgrounds for the full family photos. To ensure we got these shots, we started with the full family. Everyone did a fantastic job right from the start. With a large group like this people are typically more relaxed because the pressure spreads among them all. No one feels like they are the center of it all.

Once I took a few full family shots I had them break out into smaller families. We captured a few shots of each family, the kids together with their sweet props they brought, and also siblings. Everyone gave me their big smiles, sweet laughter, and had a lot of fun during this session.

It was an honor to photograph such a special moment for this family. Thank you for asking me to capture this rare and special time!
