St. Louis family photography can be a challenge when faced with a large extended family like Anna and Matt Roland of Roland Studios Photography recently handled. The main issue you want to avoid is for everything to end up looking the same with each photograph you take of the separate parts of the family.
Anna and Matt Roland of Roland Studios Photography, St. Louis family photographers, accomplish this by varying the poses of each of the families and then also varying the locations for the different parts of the family. We utilized some land of a family member where the Fitzpatrick’s were holding their family gathering. Anna and Matt Roland spent a portion of the morning scouting the surroundings for appropriate places for the sessions.
We had ten sessions in total to get in and had to find enough locations for variation and then utilize different poses to vary the sessions that used the same locations. Anna and Matt Roland of Roland Studios Photography met the challenge head on and accomplished all ten sessions with variation so each had their own unique feel to them.
There was also variations when it came to each family. We had full families to photograph, parents separately, each child separately and multigenerational shots. The St. Louis family photography shoot started with a grandmother and her grandchildren, then moved on to a traditional family shoot. With those two down, we moved on to another traditional family portrait followed by pictures of the parents separately and both of the children separately. Then it was back to another traditional family portrait followed by a multigenerational shoot that included ten people! Then we hit a quick senior session followed by the final traditional family portrait of the day.
It was challenging, but rewarding at the same time to see it all come together when seeing the finished product. We hope you enjoy this St. Louis family photography as much as the Fitzpatrick family did!
