Family Pics!


I recently won a photo shoot with Susan Monson Photography on the Cranberry Fries blog. I was way excited, because since I got married we haven't had any pictures with all ten of our children.

Getting family pictures taken has never been my favorite thing to do, especially with ten children. Just the prospect is overwhelming. What will we wear? Where will we take them? Can I really clear my kids schedules all at once, and keep seven boys clean for an hour?

Susan Monson made it easy. She provided suggestions for location and wardrobe, and rearranged her schedule more than once to fit ours. During the photo shoot she was professional but had an outgoing, fun personality that made every member of my family comfortable and willing to cooperate.

She came prepared with a list of ideas, but was completely open to anything we wanted to try. I loved her creative photography style. We had some traditional poses, along with many fun shots. She is awesome at capturing candid moments that show real emotion. We are already talking about scheduling my daughter's senior photos, and I won't hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.
