I love family reunions! There’s something so awesome about getting the entire family together for a weekend to reconnect and make memories. As a kid growing up in Wisconsin, I lived within 10 minutes of over 40 of my cousins. Some of my best memories are playing with my cousins on our farm, making mud pies and forts in the hay barn.
Times have changed and now families – including mine – are spread out all over the country. That’s why it is so great to have family reunions. I had the opportunity to photograph a number of large family portraits for some family reunions this summer in Sunriver, Oregon. One of my favorites was this lively crew. They had 12 kids under the age of 8 and it was awesome! I love kids, the more the merrier! (And sidenote, the beautiful patchwork quilts were lovingly stitched together by one of the sisters.)
