Extended Family Portraits
You’re planning the trip to California, you’re planning the holiday festivities, you’re planning your visits to the beach to get all those relatives who are land locked a little bit of ocean breeze in their face and sand in between their toes….so don’t forget the photographer! If you are having an extended family get together this year, you’ll want to capture those moments and have gorgeous photos to look back on. Don’t leave it to your brother and his cell phone, don’t make it your job and then never get into a photo yourself, hire me and enjoy your time at the beach with your family!
Smaller Family Sessions
So obviously with extended family portrait sessions you get a lot of group shots. But what’s even better is the length of time I give for family sessions is long enough to really break it down into smaller groups as well. This session below was a group of 3 brothers and their families, and their parents. I was able to do group shots of the entire family, then each individual family together, then, the favorite of parents..portraits of just their kids. And for this special session, I was even able to grab a few portraits for the eldest child to use for her senior portraits if she wanted to!
There are a million reasons to delay getting your family portraits done. But please, don’t worry about that extra weight you wanted to lose first, or not having the perfect matching outfits, or avoiding the whole scene because you think it’s too stressful. (I had to promise this family that I’d release the guys after I got their shots and they could attack the cooler of beer!) The most important, and only thing that matters is that your family was together, and I hate to sound gloomy, but you are never promised tomorrow…so get them when you can. Regardless of your outfit.
