Port Burwell Extended Family Session | The Boeder Family

Families grow. And grow. Until there are many kids and grandkids… and time flies by. Everyone is just trying to get by, make more money than they’re spending, go on vacation once a year, and hopefully make some memories while they’re at it. And when a few of the kids raise their families in a different province or country, it makes getting together more of a chore, but also so much more special. And that’s what it was like for the Boeder family. They try to have their growing family photographed every few years (last time there were 5 less grandkids).  So I had the privilege of capturing this Port Burwell family session!


Wilma lives in Michigan and organized this whole session from there and did an amazing job, if you ask me! She and I went to school together. It was so amazing to catch up with her and get to know her family. Seeing her married with two kids was incredibly special. And meeting (or reconnecting) with her older siblings was super fun as well! It’s obvious that this family really loves each other. I am so thankful that I was able to capture this special time for all of them at this Port Burwell family session


It is definitely a huge responsibility to capture a big family like this one! Especially when all the married children have entrusted me with additional photography to fill the frames in their homes. From the oldest grandchild who is going to grade 10, to the youngest, just a few months old; I’m sure Nana and Papa are going to enjoy seeing all of these! Most of this session was done at Port Burwell, until the rain got too bad and we had to find a location further north to where the radar was showing clear skies.

The kids all got the last chance to see each other for this year, and while they were enjoying their delicious DVI cookies, laughed and gave each other hugs that they will likely forget, but their parents and Nana and Papa will likely not. Without further ado, please enjoy the very big and very blessed family!!!

At this point we got rained out and didn’t get to explore the rest of Port Burwell beach with the whole family, as we’d hoped. See what else Port Burwell has to offer HERE!
