Extended Family in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
I had so much fun spending time with this family. I'm behind on blogging, so you get to enjoy it now!!! I loved exploring this location, getting different breakdowns and doing life with them. For extended family sessions my plan is simple. Do life with your family, capture those in between moments, and have images that coordinate for your walls. I will typically start with the children that are ready (or the youngest). We will get all of their breakdowns done, besides the group shot. With extended family sessions you can expect to get images that include, the whole group, immediate family pictures, grandparents and their kiddos, grandparents with grandchildren, grand children separate, sibling groups, and much more. I love the posed, images, but oh my heart is in love with the in betweeen moments, when people are loving on each other. Genuine smiles, and enjoying just being together. I feel like too often in time, we don't slow down. This is time to get Grandma with the newest baby, or Grandpa with his namesake. All of these moments important. Oh, and the silly faces. They are a must. Especially when getting little ones to warm up. This little one had a blast and didn't need any help, but it definitely helps those that may not be used to pictures.
Enjoy! I can't wait to document your extended family session.
