Family photos are so precious, whether it is an excuse to get everyone together or for the family holiday card, family photos are so much fun! It is always great to see families come together and capture so many different personalities in one picture. My favorite is also to get siblings who are usually fighting to come together and give each other a hug and show some love (I know mom and dad cherish these photos as well).
My main goal with family sessions is just to get everyone together and photograph all the little things and make sure you are all having some fun together because that is what families are all about. Mini sessions are usually more posed photos, while regular sessions are both posed and candid photos. Though, no matter which session you choose, you will have a blast and make memories you will hold near and dear where everyone was together, laughing and having fun -- even if mom made you all wear matching shirts!
