What to Expect from an Extended Family Beach Portrait Session

We often get asked if we photograph extended family portraits - the answer is YES! All of the time! However, generally, we only show photos of the kiddos having fun on the beach on the blog or Facebook.

While we do photograph tons of different groupings, we want to attract the clientele who wants to have a good time and is looking for more natural expressions, poses, and a more non traditional outlook on their beach portraits.

This session was at 7pm in Corolla, NC.  It was still quite bright out so we began on their walkway down to the beach with the gorgeous evening light kissing the backs of their heads.

We do tons of different groupings in as many locations as we can. Once we finish with the more "posed" images we like for everyone to get in the ocean, go play, splash, swim and have fun!  We want the end of the session to be more of a "Day in the Life" of a beach day.  Feel free to bring paddle boards, floats, surfboards or bathing suits for the kiddos for them to swim in at the end!

Below are some examples of locations and groupings that we try to capture at each session.

Here are all the cousins, newlyweds and Grandma with her 3 children.  They were celebrating her 70th birthday but she doesn't look a day over 50!

We then headed to the beach for some photos by the dunes of Grandma with the grand babies and all the grand kids.

Then down by the water for more playful photos of each individual couple.

Here are two groupings of everyone, one in the dunes and one more fun one after they had played in the ocean laying in the sand.
