Extended Family Portrait Sessions

Coordinating an extended family portrait session can be a daunting task!  Here are some tips to create the perfect family photo session with brothers, sisters, cousins, and grandparents.

  1. Schedule: this is the hardest part.  If you can get past the scheduling, you’re in great shape!  Select a few dates for the family and give everyone plenty of advance notice before the photo session.
  2. Location: discuss location with your photographer.  Indoor studio locations are great because you don’t have to worry about the weather.  However, most people prefer the natural look of an outdoor family session.  It’s up to you.
  3. Wardrobe: plan for easily coordinating colors for the family’s wardrobe.  Jeans and khaki’s can be worn and don’t count as colors.  Choose two or three colors that coordinate and look good in a natural setting if you’ll be outdoors.  Greens, browns, and blues work well in nature.

If you start with these three things, you’re off to a fantastic path to fantastic extended family portrait sessions.

The Wood Family

The Wood family met me at the park for their family portrait session.  We had grandparents, brothers, sisters, and all the kids.  They even brought beer for a little happy hour!  The men loved that!  Our list of poses included the entire family, grandparents and grandchildren, each individual family, and then some of the men and some of the women.  I love one of the final frames with grandmother and all of her grand-babies!  It is precious.  The day was beautiful and the portraits were too.  I’m so glad that the family will have these memories forever!
