Award Winning Asheville Family Photographer photographs Extended Families Vacationing in Asheville!

Several years ago, we began offering Extended Family Portrait Sessions for Large Groups of Extended Families who were Vacationing in and around Asheville after we kept receiving inquiries to photograph these types of sessions & family reunions, etc!

Over the years, photographing these types of sessions: Family Reunions, Extended Families and / or Multiple Families Vacationing together in Asheville — photographing these sessions has actually become one of our favorite things to shoot!

What’s not to love, honestly!? A group of people who maybe haven’t seen each other in a year or more, coming together for vacation! They’re happy, they’re in vacay mode — so they’re usually pretty playful and fun and they’re definitely really excited to finally get portraits all together!

Even if you’re not (technically) related as family — booking an Extended Family Portrait Session with another family who you’re close with — is a really economical way to update those family portraits!

The format of these sessions is typically as follows (with a little variation depending on the children!):

  1. Whole Group Posed + Candid
