When you think of an extended family portrait session - or a photo shoot for a family reunion - do you think it’s just a matter of getting “that one shot” of the whole big group?
Sure, it is. That’s the highlight of the event, no question.
However, my job is to give you much more than just “that one shot”.
Here’s a list of some of the must-gets at an extended family session:
Grandparents with grandchildren
Grandparents with grown children
Grown siblings and spouses
Each family unit
Children by themselves
There are so many more — and my role is to suggest combinations that you may not have considered. The day can get away from you; concerns about clothes, kids behaving and grandma getting tired keep your mind busy. Leave the photography and shot list to me.
Looking to book an extended family session this fall? I’d love to help! Let’s talk!
This weekend I photographed the stunning extended Kandula family … reunited for the first time in years.
As a surprising bonus, the family dog escaped the house and ran into the garden at a serendipitous moment. It made for THE perfect sibling portrait! Can you say canvas over the mantle?
