Anytime you get a bunch of family members together at one time, it can be a little crazy and a lot of fun. Think Thanksgiving. An extended family photo session is all of that! For the photographer, it is a challenge to try to fit all the poses, including the all-important large group photos, into the sliver of daylight called “golden hour.” An extended family session, something like shooting a wedding, incorporates the expected posed individual portraits and groupings, but the lifestyle/photojournalistic style also comes into play! This beach session included lots of lively, candid shots of cousins playing in the sand and water.
