I've had such a great time capturing extended families this summer. Many times, they told me that they all live states apart and only get together a few times a year. This is true for the L. family, who I met on Ocean Isle Beach. They even brought along the great grandmother (who was so proud of her little great granddaughters!). You can just feel the love in these images and I'm so glad I was able to provide updated portraits for this growing family.
