Lakefront Family Portraits

July 17, 2019

I had the incredible honor of photographing my own family this summer on a trip to the Poconos.

As you might be able to tell, there’s a lot of us! The last time we had portraits taken was 2007. Only two of my younger cousins were born at the time. Clearly, our family tree has grown tremendously since then.

We had an amazing time together at the Shicola Lodge in Kunkletown, PA in the heart of the Pocono Mountains this July. I wont lie, it was tough to rangle all of these people while relying on a tripod and self-timer.

But what’s the fun in a photoshoot without a little bit of adventure?

Looking back, this is my favorite adventure we’ve ever been on as a family. I’m so happy I was able to capture it all.
