Ok so when you think of summer, what comes to mind? Personally, I think of swimming, the hot sun, basketball camps, and Family Reunions. The month of June at my house has been completely full with basketball camps and games for the past 6 years and probably the next 4. I love it, and there will be a future blog post about that. However, after June is over, its time to plan for and attend my husbands extended family reunion.
His reunion is held at different places each year and usually ranges between about 70 people to 200 people. Its full of all the good stuff that make reunions so much fun: seeing family that you don’t often see, playing games, eating yummy food, and of course camp fires!
When ever I have the chance to photograph an extended family who has all traveled from their homes to enjoy each others company, I think of how glad I am that my husbands great grandparents started the tradition of getting everyone together. I think of all the wonderful memories that are made each year and I think about how lucky I am that I can be a small part of that special time in history, helping to document the memories.
Here are a few images from my latest extended family session. I hope it inspires you to get together with your families and to make sure that someone is getting pictures of it!
