Cades Cove Extended Family Pictures
I know some Gatlinburg photographers cringe when they get a request for a family reunion portrait sessions in the mountains, but I’m an oddball! I LOVE these big family pictures and getting to meet so many great people. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes getting thirty people into place is a bit like herding cats and I have to get a bit bossy, but WOW are the results worth it!
I’m from a pretty small family myself, so I truly love being immersed in the fun and love of these big groups. Let me tell you, we laugh and joke, a LOT. It’s truly as great a time for me as them.
The Delorey family had 29 members join them for their Pigeon Forge vacation, which is on the larger side of groups I’ve photographed. The heads of the family had five handsome sons, who all started their own beautiful families.
These guys were pros at this, and the beautiful sister-in- laws?? So helpful and organized with the session, they were just amazing at helping me get everyone in place for the perfect pose. Thanks ladies!!!
Let’s not forget that it rained most of the day, so the fields were a muddy mess, and we had to cross our fingers the skies didn’t open back up, but they were troopers! Don’t take my word for it though, see for yourself!
