I love an extended family session! I love an extended family session! I love… yep, I’m a broken record. Every time I do one, I just love them more! I find the value of them immeasurable. Often I have ‘family envy,’ having always wanted brothers and sisters, or even cousins of my own. So I enjoy seeing the multiple families gather together to document their connections. Before a booking, I often get an inquiry that states ‘we only want one group shot and maybe one of the grandkids’ – but I know better. Wink. I know once I get there, they start to sense the specialness of this event and appreciate the opportunity to get some fun variety. Everyone in one place at one time in a low-stress scenario – how often does that happen?? I encourage different groupings that capture their connections and they soon come up with a multitude of requests on their own, which is always fun!
The ‘H’ Extended Family Session was no different, and I was thrilled we were able to capture their connections on such a lovely fall day with a sweet backdrop on their property, making it even more personal. So enjoy this, another great extended family session I’ve had the pleasure of photographing, with combinations of three generations: grandparents, parents, grandkids, in-laws, sisters, brothers, cousins, and – a bonus – friends.
