I've been asked to photograph a few large groups, families and extended family mostly. Usually when you place 10 people ranging in age from 2year old twins and older it usually doesn't happen that you get the great group shot on the first try....but hey not everyone is like a family from a magazine.

Of course if you know me or have ever worked with me, I believe that breaking it into smaller groups is necessary to commemorate the occasion, whatever that may be.
