Photographer Venetia PA 15367 Large Family Groups & Reunions

Photographing large groups is not for the faint of heart. It sounds easy, but I can assure you it is one of the hardest types of photography. Many photographers, especially those who don’t use lighting, will not do sessions like these. Not me – I LOVE THEM! I have been doing them for a long time, and I am quite comfortable with the extra attention and effort that is needed – coordinating, posing, and lighting in an unfamiliar location doesn’t faze me at all.

Here is just a quick peek at one from a family gathering to celebrate their new graduate. Even in the chaos of family traveling in for the weekend for the ceremony, and the big party preparations going on, they made sure that they took advantage of this rare opportunity to be together to capture it. I know that they will love looking back on this image for many years to come!


If you don’t have images like these of your extended family, consider planning for that at your next gathering. The biggest, hardest step is finding a time and place where everyone can be together and that is already done if you are planning a celebration like this. A family reunion, a birthday party, an anniversary celebration or a graduation can all work. I’m happy to chat with you about making it happen!

Hello Friends

I have the coolest job in the world. I get to create gorgeous images of beautiful kids and families, so they can remember these precious days forever!
I live on Lake Keowee in SC, but I travel frequently back to the Pittsburgh/Washington PA area and do sessions in BOTH places!
