We’ve been photographing Ashley’s family since the twins were just babies. Since then it has grown into more family photos, a playful lifestyle session, headshots for her dental clinic, senior photos for her niece, and two rounds of extended family photos for her parents and siblings. We love a family who spreads the word!
Green Bay Extended Family Photos
Lori and Glen have been blessed with many children who in turn have partners, children, dogs, and even grand-dogs! Each year the family grows and keeping the family photos updated has been a big part of their priorities as a family. Nearly all the family lives in Seymour, Wisconsin, many of them just a few minutes down the road from each other (maybe even a little golf cart or ATV ride). This means the cousins all know each other, big cousins can watch little cousins, and the grown up siblings have the kind of relationship where they tease one another like they’re still teens living at home.

When it comes to extended family photos, we always meet ahead of time to talk about what the goals of the session are. What groups are they hoping to capture? What do they want to do with the photos afterwards? A large wall art piece of the whole group on canvas or wood and a sturdy album with breakdowns of the group are the most popular options. Photographing breakdowns is a big part of how we handle large group family photos. If everyone is making sure to get dressed nice and gather on this specific day, the hard part is over!

While we do the big group first, we are also sure to capture each individual family, siblings together, kids individually, grandparents with grandkids, and more. This session even ended with a silly picture of the whole family enjoying popsicles, the perfect summer reward for a job well done!
