I’ve done a few of these now over the years, but they never get old! I love doing photoshoots when multiple generations come together from far distances to reunite. Julie contacted me to see if I was available Saturday for a photo session. I was booked for later on in the day, but had enough time to make this shoot happen. Getting everyone together at the same time was challenging. Family members were all in different vehicles meeting at a place that they weren’t familiar with. We ended up beginning the shoot a little late, but thankfully we were able to get the photos that Julie really wanted.
Grandma was the main star of the show as everyone was coming to see her. Besides getting the large group shot, everyone wanted to get their own personal photos with her. With such a large group and a limited time, it was important to just find a great spot and have people in and out for photos. I shot all the photos with a 70-200 f2.8 telephoto lens and stood as far as I could to get the best background blur I could. I think the subject separation looks good with the main subjects isolated well.
I’m always a bit hesitant to play too much with the final colors of the photos in post processing, but I wanted to give Julie the option to select the style of photo she wanted. I ended up doing a standard edit of the photos that look pretty natural from the day as well as giving her a more stylized look. The photos in this post are from the stylized edits I did.
Our time together was short, but I really enjoyed working with Julie’s family. I’m glad I was able to provide photos that will have significance for the entire family. If you’re looking for high quality photos, please contact me ASAP! I’d love to book a session with you soon!
