Tjoelker Family

Last week I had the opportunity to photograph an extended family that traveled many, many miles to meet up.  It was so fun seeing the many brothers and sisters of the family tease each other and interact.  I just love watching big families be together!  We did some simple, classic family portraits and then we did a run through of various combinations of family units down by the pond on the property.  The pond was so beautiful—it made for a gorgeous setting!  All of this session’s images are online for viewing here or by clicking on the Online Ordering links above.  Enjoy!

Here are all of the siblings—those from hotter parts of the country were trying not to freeze in our breezy, cold weather.


I love the following shots—every couple deserves a great portrait of themselves! 


These are some of the sweetest people you will ever meet--my sister-in-law Jaime, her mother-in-law Eleanor and her sister-in-law Heidi.  PS—Heidi and her husband have the most delicious corn and ever-bearing strawberries for sale…I just bought a bunch this week from them.  Head to Polinder Rd in Lynden, follow the sign!



I LOVE this picture—aren’t they adorable!?
