Photographing Large Families
I absolutely love capturing large family photos, especially when they are at home. Today we squeezed all seven of these fun-loving family members onto Mum & Dad’s bed for a fun, snuggly Winter session.
When I woke up this morning it was minus 6 degrees! It reached minus 8 overnight. There was no way this family would have been so happy to be doing a morning session in that kind of weather. Luckily, we had the heater blasting and some nice winter warm clothes to keep us cosy. And of course, a lot of activity and energy going into jumping on the bed, playing stacks on each other and cuddling up with the siblings to create a truly gorgeous family session.
I’ll let the images speak for themselves, but this is one of my favourite sessions to date.
The ages of these kids range from ten to fifteen.
Here’s what Susan said about her session:
Steph was great with my kids. I was worried that the older ones wouldn’t get into it. But she had all five of them relaxed. We captured some amazing photos of them looking so natural and happy having fun together. I see some beautiful moments in my photos… very clever to be able to achieve that.
If you have a large family, I am up to the task! I love the challenge of larger families and all the connections, and I would love to photograph your family or extended family, so please get in touch if you’re interested in large family photos!
