Did you know I met over 40 multi-families last summer for pictures! Bear Lake is an amazing place to bring your family. It’s like escaping to a quiet part of the world, where you are a bit more in nature and enjoying it’s beauty. And days at the beach or in the mountains are perfect times for cousins to make memories.
If you’re on the fence on whether to hire a photographer or have a family member photograph your family, might I suggest the benefits of hiring a local professional.
She will be the most familiar with locations perfect for large family sessions, and will know what time of day works best for those locations. She may even have access to private spots not available to the public. I have a handful of private properties around Bear Lake that I have permission to bring families for photos.
Another reason to hire a photographer is that they are used to posing and directing families, especially children. A photographer will have suggestions on how to stand the most flattering, and will arrange your group in a balanced, pleasing composition.
A local photographer will also be aware of the popular rental cabins, and if your cabin makes a great spot to have a session. The photos below were taken on the beach just below the Grizzly Bear Cabin. It was easy for this large group to gather and have some beautiful shots on the beach. And because there are no homes near by, we had the beach to ourselves.
If memorable pictures of your family reunion sound like something you want, shoot me an email and lets make some plans.
