As a photographer, there is nothing quite as heartwarming as an extended family photoshoot. Seeing multiple generations come together for a session filled with laughter and love never fails to put a smile on my face.
When it comes to planning an extended family photoshoot, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure a successful session:
- Location: Choose a location that is spacious enough to accommodate a large group and offers a variety of backdrops for different poses. Outdoor locations such as a park or beach work well, but indoor locations such as a family member’s home can also be a great option.
- Timing: Plan the photoshoot at a time that is convenient for the majority of the family members. Be mindful of young children’s nap schedules and work around them.
- Clothing: Suggest a color scheme or theme for everyone to follow when choosing their outfits. This way, the final images will have a cohesive look and feel.
After the session, I carefully select and edit the best images and present them to the family. It’s always a joy to see the reaction on their faces when they see the final product.
Overall, extended family photoshoots are a wonderful way to capture memories and celebrate the bond between family members. As a photographer, I feel privileged to be a part of such special moments.
