Whew! That was a lot of pictures to scroll through. But if you want a wide variety of shots, that’s just one reason why a full-day session can be a perfect fit for something like a family reunion. At first glance, it can give you sticker shock, but when you really break it down and have everyone pitch in, it’s actually the best value for your money.
Our full day started with a mini session at the Grand Californian Hotel. After some sweet moments with the immediate family, we all took a break, so they could get in more comfy park clothes. Then we reconvened at California Adventure with additional family members for the big important group shot. Everyone was so cooperative and as always, my goal was to try to make things quick and easy, for the children’s sake.
Big groups can be tough. And especially with all the excitement and distractions at Disneyland, it can be extra difficult for kids to focus on getting lame pictures taken. I usually set everyone up first and see how they’re doing. If we get the big family photo on the first few frames — wonderful!! If not, I really don’t force it. I’ll let the littles take a break and run around while I snap candid photos, and then we’ll try again. Once we get the most important shot, I will break you up into small family groupings (for the ones who can handle it). I think we did alright that day!
Once we had a winning family photo, everyone started to split up, so I made my way through the park to the different groups and just tried to capture their day of rides and food and family fun.
