When Trish reached out to me about doing an extended family portrait session at her parents' home in Strongsville, I couldn't wait to get something scheduled! Trish's mother Linda and my mother went to school together and continue to be friends to this day, and it was so fun getting to know their family (all 19 of them!) after having such a close connection between our parents.
Linda and Ed will be moving shortly, and doing portraits at their longtime home was both a sentimental get-together and a means of goodbye. Linda and Ed's four children Trish, Carolyn, Janet, and Ed coordinated to come together for portraits outside the house they grew up in. They were joined by their spouses and children (Brian, Emily, Jack, Bill, Olivia, Kris, Ashley, Summer, Luke, Angela, Ethan, Andrew, and Adam), and everyone was so much fun to work with! (Plus I got all 19 names down- teaching experience for the win!)
Below are a few favorite images from our beautiful late September evening together!
