When Patricia tweeted me regarding her family shoot and told me it was 12 family members that would be at the same place, at the same time…for once in a really long time- I was thrilled with the idea! Patricia, is a talented makeup artist in Jacksonville and one of the sweetest people I know! And her little boy, Sebastian will melt your heart with those gorgeous big, brown, eyes! You can smell love and unity all over this group of lovely people! One of the benefits of working with large groups of family, is seeing the different character of each family member and how they all come together in perfect harmony. We feel blessed to have been able to photograph such a special day for Patricia with her husband, son, grandmother, siblings, father, niece and nephew! We had so much fun and laughs with Patricia and her family, we felt we were part of the family!

We really couldn’t pick favorites from their session, all the images are so full of emotion and unique in their own way! But here are a few that our readers can enjoy-full of the family’s laughter, energy, and yes…more LOVE!

And just for kicks, we thought we’d start the images with a cute little idea we had while shooting!
