Extended Family Sessions on their Whitefish Vacation

Aly had contacted me a couple of months before their arrival to Whitefish, Montana for their family ski vacation over winter break. They had rented a condo on Whitefish Mountain Resort and planned to spend all their time skiing, soaking in the hot tub, and reminiscing with family while on vacation. They also decided to have their family gathering photographed, so Aly found me and we did just that! I traveled up to their resort condo on the mountain and we actually did photos right from the street! Whitefish Mountain sure showed off for us this night, I am still in awe thinking about it!

I really do love getting inquiries for extended family sessions, especially when everyone is traveling here from different places. There is usually a lot of excitement because the family has seen each other in so long, everyone is rejoicing and having a great time. Being a family photographer in Whitefish means I am familiar with travelers (as it's a resort town) and being a local, I am happy to provide resources that might make planning your trip easier. I am familiar with the locations in the area and know right where to send you for dinner with your family. I also know which activities are sure to bring a smile to everyone's face, trust me... I enjoy providing this information!

Aly's whole family was such a joy to work with, each of the four kids with their significant others and their babies (all four were under 2 years old)! This day was particularly cold, I think it was a whopping 6 degrees that night! We rotated out families to make sure all the little ones stayed warm, everyone getting 5-10 minutes in front of the camera. The breaks sure made the kiddos happy! Near the end of the session we actually took photos right on their back porch of the condo, we were getting some alpenglow on the mountain and we couldn't resist the photo-op!
