Get ready. Because this is a DOOZY of a family photo session! This past weekend I got to hang out with the entire DiMatteo clan (2 grand parents, their 4 adult children + 3 spouses, and 9 grandkids!) and while something like this can be chaos and crazy and stressful and end up turning out horribly and be a miserable experience for everyone involved – these guys just totally NAILED IT! They were all such a pleasure to photograph and just fun to be around and I think we all had a blast even though it was 90+ degrees outside!! This post is a BIG ONE because we had so many people and so many fun combinations of groups to do and there’s not a bad photo in the bunch so I just couldn’t narrow down what to post! Check out the WHOLE DiMatteo family!!
Grandma and Grandpa and ALL the grandkids!
Love both of these shots!
No, you’re not seeing things. This is not photoshopped. All 9 kids really did look at the camera and smile (well. we almost got a smile out of the littlest one down there ;)) and it really wasn’t even that hard! They are just the sweetest happiest kiddos and great listeners we BOOM – smiles from everyone! Made my job easy-peasy!
All the boy and all the girls!
Just the boys…
Just the girls.
Had to post this one. How awesome are these girls?! I also think it’s just pretty awesome that they will have each other as friends and not just cousins as they grow up! Pretty special.
Another fun one of all the kids!
And a few of all the adults!
Now for each family! These guys were actually my clients from a few years ago (pre baby boy!) so they were the ring leaders of this whole thing :)
They also just totally nailed their little family session!
