Photography Tip: Family Generation Portrait

Excited to share one of my absolute favorite families in this week’s #AskAliceShesNice.

Family Generation Portraits are a rare request for me.  Most times, it’s because they are so often overlooked, and that is such a shame because the finished product is such prized photograph for all of the family members involved.
As families grow, I highly encourage members of each generation to gather together to create a portrait that captures and preserves the personalities of the old and young.  For posterity.  I’ve witnessed families experience sickness and tragic losses in a blink of an eye and express to me their regret for not taking the time to capture the entire family during their last gathering.  My tip:  Don’t wait.  Life is too short.  Make an effort to document your family every 2 years or anytime a new member is added to the family.  I promise you will never, ever regret it.
Camera Settings:  Canon 5D Mk111, 85mm 1.2L, shot outdoors at ISO 800, f/2.0, 1/3200 on a cloudy day around 7pm.  It was Grandfather’s 75th Birthday.
