Sometimes, my clients book family sessions, but never book extended family sessions. A beautiful portrait of your entire family can be something you’ll treasure for generations to come, because rarely are grandparents or aunts and uncles captured alongside immediate family. This summer, I was fortunate enough to be asked to photograph this sweet family at a local park.
We had to work around a schedule of family traveling in from Ontario, the availability of all the other children and grandparents, and somehow we managed to secure the one date that worked for everyone! Hooray! They chose a really soft and soothing color palette (lots of breezy blues and whites) that seamlessly worked with their outdoor location. The park we chose had plenty of sweeping branches and greenery to contrast with their summery outfits, but the real standout were all those smiles! What an amazingly beautiful and loving family. You can see it in the portraits! We had fun and a lot of laughs.
How do you decide who should be in an extended family portrait? Well, there’s no real “rule”, but consider arrangements like grandparents/grandchildren, aunts and uncles, or sibling groups, or go for the BIG family portrait and make it a real reunion! I’d love to talk to you about my modern, clean and lifestyle family pictures and how we can make it a stress-free and fun memory. Contact me HERE.
