The biggest one of them all is… the Extended Family Shoot!  Grandparents, parents, uncles, aunties, children, cousins, in-laws, pets… These shoots are fun albeit busy with the results guaranteed to please everyone- especially the grandparents! 

Without doubt, the hardest part of an extended family shoot is organising your family members to be at one location, at the same time, in good moods and (semi) clean clothes! Pick four colours for your family to wear – soft, block colours are best (blues, pinks, grey or mint with denim and white added in as required). Shoes don’t really matter, bare feet are great! 

We normally aim to shoot in the morning and work through our wishlist of photos together making sure there is lots of fun for everyone in between. Given how rare it can be to have your family all together these days, invariably there is a long shoot list capturing many different combinations. Typically, we aim for everyone-in-together, grandparents with their children, grandparents with grandchildren, each nuclear family, little cousins all together plus a whole lot of candids of every other possible combo! It’s a big shoot (approx 2 hours) and we always start with the photos featuring the youngest children first.

For most, an extended family shoot is a very special, once in a lifetime event. Once captured, these photos really will become treasured by all your family.  View the extended family gallery for inspiration.

Some of our favourites…

  • If you are looking for a warm and friendly, intelligent, hard-working, organised and very talented photographer for your wedding day Cristina Mahony/Little Love is the one. Making people feel very at ease (I usually HATE having my photo taken), and taking extremely natural photos whilst capturing every last bit of beauty and warmth out of the subject matter quickly and without fuss is what she does best. Everyone has said that my wedding photos are the most tasteful, beautiful and natural that they’ve seen. She is happy to accommodate your needs and unlike many wedding photographers that require you to sign up for their ‘packages’, she is a delight to deal with and will help you decide on what you need. We are very happy campers!”

  • "Cris captured our family so beautifully especially our two boys. Sometimes it s hard to see the love between siblings when they are fighting and just being rough n tumble boys. But Cris captured their love and affection for each other so perfectly. Timeless photographs we will cherish as they grow. Highly recommend Cris. She has a wonderful way with the camera and people."
