If you come get family pictures with me, I know we will do a walking picture. Because I'm known for this, some clients will ask me to do the "walking picture". One reason I like this technique is because the results are natural everyday relaxed expressions from the individuals instead of super posed smiles. And, it's a great picture to enlarge to hang on your wall!
Have you ever thought about white shirts and jeans or khakis for a photoshoot? This is an exception about matching your outfits for the summer sessions because it's very simple and it unifies the group! It's a very nice color scheme especially for a beachy summer shot or pics during the Summer against the lush greens.
Large families are fun to work with because there is so much variety. Here is a larger sized family of eight. Most of the people that come to me for a family photograph are looking to update a picture for their home and send to family and friends. I usually do outdoor formal pictures and slip in some informal poses to give variety as well. Since this is a family of more than five, there is a small price increase.
