I’m very lucky to photograph some great clients that make my family photography sessions an absolute joy. For this family photography session we gathered a rather large and adventurous family for an outdoor walk which turned out to be a little more like a trek but thankfully everyone had a great time.
I memorised at 16 names for this shoot, it’s something that I like to do before big family sessions as particularly when you’re photographing a large group, you simply need to know who you’re talking to at all times. When we arrived at our location of choice I set about putting names to faces and then we proceeded to head off, intent on giving everyone a bit of exercise, fun and some photographs to remember the day by before the family went their separate ways after the shoot.
I’m glad to say that it wasn’t only the children who had a sense of adventure on this shoot, the young adults and older adults alike were all game for a bit of a laugh and this made for some slightly crazy but fun photographic opportunities, including almost all of the family in a very large tree. After a slightly wrong turn looking for a particularly picturesque spot we did end up walking a little further than anticipated but I comfort myself in thinking that the extra exercise was recompensed by the large picnic planned upon the sessions’ conclusion.
If you’d like photographs of a large family gathering then please feel free to get in touch. I hope you like a small selection of the photographs produced on the day below.
