These guys were just one big happy family and their beach session in Lavallette, NJ definitely shows it!  We have been dying to post this since we had to keep it under wraps because it was a Christmas surprise for Grandma!  We both love photographing large groups and the dynamic of extended family is so much fun to be around, especially when the kiddos are a little bit older and in on the fun (instead of being tricked, lol).  Everytime we do this I think about getting together for the big 'family photos' when I was young... there were TWELVE of us cousins and I imagine it was shenanigans the entire time.  Makes me smile... and reminds me, I added a generation, and I gotta get my family done!  Enjoy!
