FAQ's about Family Portraits - what to expect...
Core Family Group
The Core Family Group includes a 5-8 people, usually parents and children. The session can be held at any location within 30km without any additional travel cost. I love when my clients have somewhere special in mind that they feel comfortable.
During our time I will get a group to sit, stand and move around to give a natural look to their photos. I often take upwards of 150-200 photos during a session and aim to pick out the best 30-50 photos.
I will take several different poses of the group as well as couple photos of the parents, sibling group and individual photos.
Finished photos will be available in your own Online Gallery ready for download and/or to order prints.
Large Generational Family Group
The Large Generational Family Group is exactly how it sounds. Often I get to meet Grandma and Grandpa, parents, cousins, aunts and uncles and babies. This group consists of a group of 20 - 30 people, mostly from a grandparent generation down to the currently new baby.
This group often needs more time and can expect to be photographed for up to 3 hours. The large family photos may be more posed however as we break down into smaller family groupings you can expect to see more personality and lifestyle in the photos. Finally we finish with couple photos, cousins, grandkids, brother and sisters and individual photos.
With a large group I take upwards of 300 photos or more and look to keep the best of each pose. That may be 30-50 photos. It could be more if the group I'm working with is willing, organized and able to take direction well.
