giant family pictures

For Christmas we all got together for a Sumsion photo shoot. It was a surprise to my parents, so that was really fun, and rare for us all to be together at the same time. Not to mention dressed, fed, awake, and mostly happy. So 12 adults, 9 1/2 babies… it was quite the task. All images by our wonderful photographer, Katie Luther. (She brought assistants and puppets and seriously you should have seen the madness happening behind the camera. Thank you thank you thank you.) We took them out at this ranch I think? Actually I can’t remember, except that it was windy and freezing and we were on the clock to get them done before kids exploded, in between lunch and naps and dinner and whatever else.

I’m so glad we took the time right after Christmas to do this– it was a little hectic and I’m sorry the timing wasn’t great but I think it was so worth it. Now dad can replace his pink/teal circa 1997 picture down to his office… this was long overdue.

I can’t wait to make this one huge and put it somewhere in my living room. There are so many of us!

That is nine kids age five and under. About to be ten!

Allison, Margo, Kira, Jake, Lincoln, in the front- Madilyn with Quinn and Izzie with Bennett. I love his pants

The original seven. We used to roll in the Toyota Previa.
I love this one. Makes me so happy.
Jake’s arm around Izzie!

Siblings and spouses. 
Man my parents are adorable. Like, could they be cuter?

Big groups or small- if you need a photographer in Redding, call Katie. She is great to work with, flexible, has super good ideas, and great with kids.

  1. Those are awesome pictures. I like the colors too. It is VERY hard to get pictures of large groups with kids. Kudos! They turned out amazing with that said. Nice! I bet your parents were so excited to have all their kids and grand babies together.
