University of Tampa Pictures
Extended Family Photos
I loved working with this family for their extended family photos over the Christmas week. A great week to have your family pictures taken, am I right? Family in town, call me! Large extended family phots are so much fun for me. University of Tampa pictures are usually not what I think of for “me” and my style, but this extended family photo session at UT may have changed my mind. The location gives a traditional vibe, with brick walls, grand stair cases, and the lovely reflective terrazo floors outside of Plant Hall. However, there are spots of greenery and lovely light to bounce and reflect off the windows in an intersting way, too.
I can’t believe how stinking hot it was the night we met. Especially, as my fingers are slightly slowed as they type by the cold we have right now. The family planned for perfect fall pallette of colors for their session. No one would have though it would be almost 90 degrees that night! They could write the “what to wear” guide for my families for this year. Mustard is one of my favorite colors to photograph. It pops against the red brick walls, and the maroons, and neutrals of the family.
They didn’t shy away from pattern either. Going for the right color theme is one thing. Finding the right pattern mixes will always take your family pictures to another level. Simple additions of scarfs, or a sweater you can put on or off can really change your look. I included quite a few black and white images, which are timeless, and generally go with family pictures from years past so well. Plus, the patterns also create a bit of textural interest in the black and white images that make those images even more my jam.
Thinking of a family session for your extended family for 2017, contact me today to set it up! There is no time like today. The weather is perfect, sun is setting early enough that littles don’t have to stay up late!
The pictures of these sweet grandparents with their grandbabies are some of my favorite “grandparents” shots ever. See more of the session on their video fusion slideshow, included with my “fully digtial” packages when you add that on to your session at booking.
