Taking pictures of a large family can be difficult and take a lot of time if you are not prepared. I had a blast taking this fun family's pictures, The family ended up having a great time too! When photographing a large family, it is best to do so earlier in the day, especially if there are young children involved. Everyone is usually fresh and rested when conducting a session in the morning. This client really wanted a large family picture so I made sure I took the group picture first, then I took this kids pictures, and then individual families next. When photographing young children, I have been more successful when I don't force the child to pose, but get them in a more natural setting.
I love to capture those special moments in people's lives through photography. I am constantly looking at a scene and thinking how could that work in a photo session, or what angle would work to capture the beauty that God has blessed us with.
