Extended Family Session
I'm not going to lie, they tend to be a bit wild! Often my extended family sessions involve quite a few children and usually quite a range of ages. They are a crazy mix of laughter, running around and possibly a game of shoulder races. They are such a lovely way to capture updated photos of the whole family. Here are 3 reasons you should consider rounding up your own family for a photography session with me.
Its the gift that keeps on giving.
Think about it. Your parents/Grandparents are the absolute hardest to buy for at Christmas/Birthdays. They already have everything they want (lucky buggers!) I don't think I have come across any parent that doesn't love photos of their own children or even better their grand-children. Not only will the shoot create some beautiful group photos but it will give you the opportunity to have some gorgeous photos of your children and parents together or perhaps another combination that is extra special to you. Then come the next birthday/Christmas/Mothers day etc you will have an endless supply of photos to create beautiful gifts or albums as special gifts.
It gets the family together.
We all know that life is busy. Crazy busy when children are involved!! How often do you get to spend time together as a whole family? I think every extended family session I have taken has involved the family going out for a nice dinner afterwards to spend time together. I think it sounds like such a lovely afternoon - spend an hour playing on the beach and capturing some memories followed by a nice meal together having a giggle.
Its budget friendly.
Extended family sessions are a lot cheaper than a full family session as you can typically divide the cost with your siblings/parents. I am always sure to take each family aside to capture them individually as well as some beautiful group combos. Its such a great way to get some photos without having to pay the full fee by yourself.
