Orange County Family Reunion Photographer

Orange County Family Reunion Photographer – At the park

This family was in Newport Beach for their Orange County family reunion and wanted to get a rare photo of the entire group! The main focus for them was the entire extended family and the grand kids/grandparents portrait. While we waited for everyone to arrive, we took photos of each individual family and whatever combos they requested (siblings, cousins, etc.)

Tips For Having a Successful Orange County Family Reunion Portrait Session

  • Choose your color palette and share with family members. You can use this free color palette generator.
  • Name a family captain. Have family members send photos of their outfits to make sure everything looks great before your session. There is always one oddball!
  • Bring treats for the little ones for rewards (no chocolate please!)
  • Have family members arrive 20 minutes early at the meeting place
  • Be sure to have the women in the photo coordinate their hair and makeup appointments.
  • Discuss what everyone wants to do with the photos. Many families decide to purchase all of the digital files to save money or pitch in to buy the grandparents a nice wall canvas.
  • Plan something fun to do after the session is over. Grab dinner or a treat! This helps the younger children stay focused on a reward.
