Extended family pictures aren’t just one big group shot and then done. It is a time to take advantage of everyone dressed up and ready for the camera. That one big shot will happen, of course, but getting images of each individual family is a must. Sibling groups, couples, and individual pictures are all part of the gallery that will be waiting in your inbox if you hire me to do a shoot like this. It is like a mini session for each individual family with the bonus pictures of everyone together. Sometimes families will split the cost of a session like this, which usually makes it cheaper than individual sessions. An extended shoot is a fun way to get those wall worthy pictures of your loved ones easily and for less.
Are you getting together with extended family this summer? The pandemic has helped us realize that family is the most important thing we have. Being together with loved ones is time cherished. Remembering that time will become a treasured memory when this is over. Having professional pictures taken only takes an hour or so, can be so much fun, and will create images to love for years to come.
Lucky for me, this big group of gorgeous people are my family. Not sure how I could be related to this beautiful people, but I am. When I was edited these pictures I started to tear up (yup, totally emotional is my M.O.). Over time they only added to their family making their relationships stronger, not drifting apart like many families. These cousins are inseparable and siblings still surf on the North County shoreline together. Family is so important right now, and these pictures show how much they mean to each other.
