Making it Fun is the Key to Success with Large Family Portraits
Mom-to-Mom is a series of photo exhibits that feature non-technical tips and artistic inspiration from image-making moms. The exhibits, which focus on a new theme each month, are designed to encourage other moms like you to experiment with your cameras, lenses, and accessories to hone your own photographic skills.
Large groups are always a handful to capture. Getting everyone to look at the camera on que is next to impossible especially when small children are involved. This summer we “attempted” to get a family reunion style portrait which included 18 people including four busy children. It seems like eventually you just settle on a picture that has at least 90% of the subjects looking at the camera. Honestly, I love the chaotic shots where everyone is just having a good time.
