What to Expect from an Extended Family Session

The Goldman family had their family vacation in Sea Isle City, New Jersey. They contacted me early in the year to book their session. It’s always good to get your photographer booked as soon as you know your travel dates. Jersey Shore photographers often book quickly because so many families want to capture their family vacation. The beach makes the perfect backdrop for family pictures, especially if you’re not from the beach.

A majority of my sessions during the summer are extended families. Most families say, “We’d like to get a picture of everyone together and each family.”. What they don’t realize is, by hiring an experience extended family photographer, you’re able to get SO many different groupings in just an hour.

During your extended family session I will capture the below groupings by both the dunes and the ocean:

  • Everyone
  • Grandparents with Grandchildren
  • Grandparents with their children
  • Each Family
  • Grandparents alone
  • Each set of parents alone
  • Siblings
  • Cousins
  • Each child alone

If time allows I also try to capture:

  • Children with each parent
  • Each child with each parent
  • Girl cousins
  • Boy cousins
