More About This Session
Lauren (pictured above) began the planning for this portrait session a year ago! I was SO excited to finally meet her and her wonderful family. This group of people truly made our session fun and special. During extended family sessions, the goal is to take one portrait of the ENTIRE family and several candids of the entire family. After that, I try to do what I would normally do at a mini-session with each separate family unit, followed by pictures of the grandparents with the children and some pictures of just the grown-ups. Extended family sessions can get chaotic, which is why they are best suited for a family who can have fun and “roll with the punches.” This family absolutely rocked their session 😉
What to Wear for Extended Family Pictures
As an experienced family photographer in Hingham Massachusetts, I am a pro at outfit selection for beach family pictures! Firstly, DON’T make everyone wear the same thing! Major no-no! Secondly, choose a color scheme or palette. Pinterest is a great place to find color palettes. Thirdly, add one (or two or three, if you have a large family) outfits with either texture or a small pattern to them. Women should all wear long dresses or skirts preferably, for the most flattering look. For men, I recommend lon sleeved button-downs and pants.
Booking a Family Photographer in Hingham Massachusetts
Would you like to book Christina Runnals for your own family portraits? Book your session, or find out more about a family session with Christina Runnals Photography!
For your pictures, do keep in mind that you should request your session as soon as possible. I recommend booking at least 6 months in advance for June, July, August and September dates, and 4-5 months in advance for October dates. I often times even have clients book as early as a year in advance to make sure they secure a prime spot! Because we live in New England, there are only so many months to take your pictures, right!? (That is… unless you want to be wearing snowsuits in your pictures ;-). If you’re booking at the last minute and can’t get the date you want, you can first check to see if I have any Piggyback Sessions available. Another option is that you could request a sunrise session. I can sometimes make time for an early morning session while my children are still sleeping.
Hope to hear from you soon!
