As we near Christmastime, the amount of multi-family photo sessions that I book skyrockets. It makes sense though – ’tis the season for families coming together! September and October tends to be a lot of the photo sessions with small young families playing in the leaves, and around November and December is when the large family groups come together for a big photo shoot. I especially love these types of sessions – more people equals more smiles and more opportunities for different combinations of photos! I love the variety and especially love seeing 3 generations all having fun together. Being in Winnipeg though, it’s cold, so we usually make use of large indoor spaces for large photo shoots like these. Level 3 Studios is a great place to rent for large groups and I especially love it for all its gorgeous natural light.

Another perk to this session was seeing Kara’s beautiful family again and taking pictures of her cute kids! Back in September we photographed her side of the family, and this time it was her husband’s family’s turn for a photo session. I’ve gotten to know Kara more in the last few months since meeting for our first shoot, and it’s been great connecting with her and getting a peek inside her creative world too. You probably have seen her bunting a lot in several of my baby photo shoots as of late…

Here’s a sampling from this last photo session with the Cooke Family – enjoy! 🙂
