Family reunions are a great opportunity for a new family portrait! In my family we do ours most summers if we all manage to get together. I am the designated photographer and it's always fun to try to both be in the big group picture and also take it. I have to say, I prefer to just take the picture and not appear in it. :)
I love having a reason to use my blog, especially this time of year when I have such a hard time getting around to it. This amazing family got together last month for a big group portrait, and one of their families has since moved out of the country. I am happy to blog some of their session, so that they can all see what we got.
Also I get inquiries about what sort of photography I do at these big get-together occasions, so I think it can be helpful to post something that's pretty typical.
Our main big group picture. As is pretty normal, when there are a few young children involved in a group, photoshop helped us to get the best picture of everyone all at once.
And I totally love the Batman group picture. What a great idea for something fun!
The "all the cousins" picture is always the hardest. :)
Then we did each individual family portrait.
And individual portraits of most everyone.
This one was tricky - I kept thinking the kids were going to slide off the log... sometimes I have a hard time being a photographer instead of being a mom...
If you're interested in more information about a family photography session, my website has lots of info about how I do sessions. Or you can call or email me if you have questions or would just like to chat about photo sessions.
I love doing sessions at parks like this one, but for lots of other session locations, see this blog page here.
