This family photo shoot started off just like any other - family of four: mom, dad, two adorable little boys. As the day approached, however, the family seemed to grow....to a family of 14. Word got out there was a photographer heading to Westchester and the whole mishpacha wanted in.
The story starts with two twin sisters. They are sweet, fashionable, and have the quickest wits. They each get married. Each couple has kids. Those kids get married and some of them have kids. So here they are: this big group of moms, dads, aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers, sisters, grandmas, and grandpas. And me. Little old me with the biggest, silliest grin on my face running around trying to decipher which son goes with which mom and which husband goes with which sister and which grandson belonges to which grandmother. All while trying to steady my camera while giggling so hard at the boys throwing piles of leaves on their grandmas heads; grandmas are beaming with joy the entire time.
And then I catch my breath long enough to look around at this family overflowing with love and laughter and wonder how I got so lucky to be the one to photograph them.
