What is an Extended Family Session?

Extended Family Sessions are when you have several families that are related come together for one photo session. As life gets busier and busier we find ourselves being apart more from the ones we love, sometimes only getting together at Holidays. When a family has taken the time to plan a vacation to have everyone gathered all together this is a very special event to document. Some families get together every year in the same location while others may get together only every few years. I have seen some families who have not been together in many years, so you can imagine how more special that would be for everyone to want to document their time together.

i love being apart of these sessions, I love to capture each families personality as well as the entire family as a whole, and even get some candids of the kids running, and jumping in the water! These sessions always make me laugh, they make me cry at times, and sometimes they surprise me with a baby announcement, a birthday, or even a wedding proposal. I feel so honored to be apart of each family as they travel here and enjoy the beach, which is the place I call Home!!

Reece and his Cello- Ann Mangum Photography

It's those eyes that draw me in, and then the bow tie, and the smile and if that is not enough he is a music man too.  Loved this session from the summer with this little guy Reece!!

Offering Christmas Mini Sessions- Ann Mangum Photography

It's that time of Year again, so lets plan a little Holiday Cheer and sing "Joy to the World" as we get our pictures done for those Christmas Cards.

 I am thinking a little snow, some decorations, maybe a soft blanket for the family to cozy up in, or maybe you prefer glitter, and bows  we can do that too!

I want my mini sessions this year to be fun for the whole family, so I am thinking 30 minute sessions would be a plenty.  

Don't know what to wear, well I can help with that too!  I have put together some ideas to create a stress free session and I hope you find them useful along the way to your Christmas Minis!

A Girl and Her Duck- Ann Mangum Photography

Kaitlyn and I headed off to the park for an afternoon photo session, as we were there we encountered a very friendly duck who followed us around the rest of our time there.  I believe he wanted food, but the only thing we had was confetti, I don't believe that was what he had in mind.  Check out these playful photos of Kaitlyn in the park.
