Extended Family Session, One big family

Extended family sessions are a great way to capture memories with your entire family, including grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. These sessions are a wonderful way to bring everyone together and create lasting memories that can be treasured for years to come. Here are some tips for a successful extended family session:

  1. Choose the right location: When planning an extended family session, it's important to choose a location that can accommodate a large group of people. Outdoor locations such as parks or beaches can be great options.
  2. Dress appropriately: Encourage your family members to coordinate their outfits to create a cohesive look. Choose colors that complement each other and avoid patterns that may clash.
  3. Plan ahead: Communication is key when planning an extended family session. Make sure to communicate with everyone involved to coordinate schedules and discuss expectations for the session.
  4. Be flexible: Extended family sessions can be challenging due to the large number of people involved. Be flexible and willing to adjust the session as needed to ensure that everyone is included and comfortable.
  5. Capture different groupings: Take advantage of the large group and capture different groupings, such as grandparents with their grandchildren or siblings together. These groupings will provide a variety of photos and capture the unique relationships within the family.
  6. Have fun: The most important thing about an extended family session is to have fun and enjoy the time spent together. Encourage everyone to relax and be themselves to capture genuine moments and emotions.

In conclusion, extended family sessions are a wonderful way to bring everyone together and capture lasting memories. With the right location, communication, and preparation, you can create beautiful photos that will be cherished for generations. Don't hesitate to reach out to a professional photographer to help you plan and execute the perfect extended family session.
