5 REASONS TO BOOK AN EXTENDED FAMILY SESSION

March 7, 2024

I love a good family session, but when it includes aunts and uncles and grandparents and cousins, and maybe even a niece or nephew or two? Everything just gets a whole lot more FUN.

Here are 5 reasons you should include your extended fam in your next session:

  1. Get some nice photos of your parents with their grandchildren AT LAST. This is my fave part, not only do you and your parents have these beautiful photos to cherish and pop up on your walls (GREAT gift ideas too!), but these photos also become the most beautiful and sentimental gifts for your children. Ain’t nothing like a multi-generation family photo, and I bet in 10, 20, 50 years they will be SO grateful for them! These are the kinds of photos you pass down and cherish FOREVER.
     
  2. All the joy of a Christmas catch up without the stress (or the over stimulated/over tired, sugar hyped kids LOL). We all need more reasons to get the fam together, don’t we?! This is such a lovely reason to carve out some time and get everyone in one place. There’s always a heap of banter, great play between cousins and plenty of old memories and funny stories to be shared. It’s really spesh.
     
  3. It’s like a heap of family sessions in one. We’ll go through all the must-have pics – like grandparents with all the grandchildren, your parents with your siblings, and all those other all-important combos. But then we break off with each immediate family to spend some quality time with just your little crew. Basically a mini family photoshoot – it’s an awesome way to update your own family photos and catch up with the extended fam at the same time!
     
  4. You can split the costs. Large extended family sessions incur an extra charge of $450, but you’ll get well over 150 images to share and lots of families choose to split the cost between them. If you’ve got a smaller extended family, I may waive the additional fee. Just reach out to me for a quote!
     
  5. It makes THE BEST gift. Milestone birthday? Significant anniversary? New babies in the fam? No matter what you’re celebrating, extended family sessions make the ULTIMATE gift. Not only do you get the joy of spending time with the people you love, you get to relive that joy again and again through special images that you can look back on forever
