Let the photographer know about it beforehand.
By doing so, you will ensure that your photographer is prepared for the circumstances and has enough time to think about the most appealing poses for group portraits as well as the best localities where you and your whole family or the company of your friends will fit just perfectly and look the best.
Start from group photos and then divide into mini-groups.
When making a photo session of a group of people, the most important task of your photographer will be not only to take pictures of all of you together but also to divide you into small groups and then take photos of each of you in person.
Consider how much time you are ready to spend on a photo shoot.
Keep in mind that calculating the time dedicated to a group photo shoot is just as important as making your pictures look awesome. 2 hours are enough for a group of 10 people while taking pictures of 15-20 people might require up to 3 hours in total.
Choose the right outfit.
Let your outfits be in harmony with each other’s personal style and color choice. This is also important because flawless outfits will make your photos look 100% professional for all of you to be in perfect unity with one another.
Relax and have lots of fun.
It’s your fun time with your close ones, isn’t it? So just let these moments be perfect for all of you spending your time together in the best possible way and with as much pleasure and delight as it can be imagined.
