Extended Family Summer Portrait Session

< back to blog home

This family patriarch was gifted a portrait session from his kids for his birthday and I was lucky enough to be chosen for this momentous occasion. I’ve known Rick and Cindy for several years, I even did a professional portrait of him years ago for another project. But I hadn’t met the rest of his family, so I was excited to do so.

Just like any extended family portrait session I do, I worked carefully with each family unit to get photos of their walls so I could recommend what sized grouping worked best in their respective homes. By the time the session day came around, I felt like I knew the daughter and daughter in law, and knew what I was shooting for.

Here is Rick and Cindy’s favorite group image:

Below are some “behind the scenes” shots that were taken by my sister in law assistant who was helping me. Unfortunately, most of the BTS shots are of my backside. 🙂

You’ll also see a mock up of the wall grouping Rick and Cindy selected for their living room, right above the baby grand piano. This is from the original snapshot I took of the space with the final images and rendering of the frames – I added these in my planning software so they could see what the grouping would look like in the space.Behind the Scenes of an extended family portrait session

Since Rick and Cindy have recently moved to another home, I hope to get over there to photograph the grouping in its new location!
