As my own son has gotten bigger, I have come to a new appreciation of extended family; his grandparents (on both sides), his Gogo (my aunt) and his cousins and uncles and aunts. It really does take a village, and I couldn’t be happier to have them all helping us along. It makes me so happy to photograph extended families, to see happy wonderful people coming together to document a precious moment in time. Photographs are indeed, all that remains of these fleeting moments. It is worth the effort and maybe hassle of coordinating an entire family, these pictures are a testament to that.
