A few weeks ago a friend of mine emailed me to ask if I could shoot his family portraits in Bella Vista during their traditional family gathering for Thanksgiving dinner at a lake house. I thought this was a great idea! Not just the family session, but gathering all together the weekend before since most people have more than one Thanksgiving to attend.

I had four families to shoot, and then of course we took one big family photo. I had so much fun hanging out with the Reynolds, Ratzlaff, Bayley, and Lyon families that day!

Here are my favorites for their family session.
