We were able to capture this Grandma and Grandpa with their kids and grandkids at this shoot in the beautiful, green forest in the Black Hills of South Dakota! The fun part of this shoot was doing the posing, smiling, and shots as fast as we could as the light kept growing darker and darker and the thunder sounding closer and closer! In 30 minutes we got photos of the entire group, headshots of all of the adults, the couples together, the kids together, each individual family, all of the children individually, and the grandparents with their grandchildren. That’s some fast shooting!!
People who visit Angel Fire, Red River, Taos, and the rest of Northern New Mexico tend to LOVE it here. For this reason, we are consistently shooting family shoots while people are vacationing; people want to document the smiles and memories made in such a special place! These photo sessions happen (inside and outdoors) at all times of the year. The beautiful backgrounds (green grass, adobe architecture, grandiose mountains, running water, thick forest, white snow, etc) are plentiful and photogenic. A family shoot of up to 15 people only takes about one hour. We take unlimited poses during this time: group shots, individual family shots, grandma/grandpa with grandkids, cousins only, siblings only, etc!
