Extended Family Portraits in Concord MA
and all the magical moments that made it
Extended family portraits – ones with adult siblings, their children and grandparents – are becoming some of my favorite portraits sessions to photograph. It’s not often families come together to have professional pictures taken, and its something I hear people saying they regret not doing. A lot of planning goes into these sessions, from location and outfit selection, to the shot list, all things we discuss before the session. For this family, we planned their session for an evening at Minuteman Park in Concord, a beautiful location for outdoor portraits.
One of the first pictures we captured was this beautiful multi-generation, extended family portrait (which will soon be hanging above proud grandmom’s mantle as a beautiful 20×30 canvas).
As part of our shot list, we also created individual portraits of each family. I love how well everyone’s outfits worked at this session. We discussed outfits and the location ahead of time to get the look that complemented their family best. They selected a couple of core colors, in this case, blues and creams, and this family also included a little pop of red, which I love. A nice contrast to the green field and setting sun.
Some of the fun in-between moments!
Everyone loves this picture of Uncle Mikey, so it had to make the feature! Such a great, relaxed portrait.
A big thank you to Christina for bringing her family to see me. I had a wonderful time getting to know your family, and it was especially wonderful seeing your mom’s reaction to all of your family portraits. It was a complete pleasure.
