Manchester-By-The-Sea Extended Family Portraits at Grandparents Home

We all know that when multiple generations of family get together (ie. the holidays), things can get a little chaotic.  The same is true for an extended family portrait session.  But when you are able to embrace the energy and emotions that kids (and babies!) of various ages and hanging out with your own siblings and parents can bring, it can also be a rewarding time.

I was invited by my Nobles classmate Liz once again to photograph her family over Labor Day weekend – but this time the whole clan including her parents, siblings and all their kids at their parents home that sits overlooking scenic Manchester-by-the-Sea harbor.  This selection of photos tries to showcase the children at play, parents and grandparents adoring the kids (and sometimes singing/cheering/incorporating various tactics to get their kids attention to the camera!), as well as a few group shots  It was a bright and sunny late summer day, and this preppy group picked a perfect palette of blues and whites to embrace the seaside location.

Grandma and Grandpa B certainly have a beautiful and energetic family to be proud of, and I hope they cherish these photos!PINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPIN
