Dettl Family | Hampton Roads Family Photographer

Oh how I love BIG FAMILY SHOOTS! Lynne contacted me because she had the whole gang coming to Sandbridge and they had SO MUCH to celebrate!:)

Fourty  years of marriage, reaching the age of 60, daughters celebrating new homes, a new baby, kindergarten graduation, an engagement- EEEK!  Sandbridge has always been the beach vacation we plan and they wanted to document it all!

This group was SO. MUCH. FUN. Not a super serious one in the group and there was a lot of laughter! We had to shoot a little earlier than normal because of all the littles and the wind was kickin’ but we had a blast. These were some of the best behaved kids ever and they knew how to take a picture! Of course the older boys wanted to slip in some super silly ones 😉 On to the “big kids”! It was so nice to take shots of all the siblings, these super cute couples, and of course- the leaders of the pack- Lynne and John!

Can you even handle the lovey dovey vibes we have going on here? GAH! So sweet!

I think they might like each other a little bit 😉 Aren’t her eyes GORGEOUS?


Now it is the kid’s turn to shine:)


The whole gang <3 Hope they have the best memories of their Sandbridge vacation and these pictures help to reminisce forever!
