Extended family sessions are something I shoot fairly regularly, and I LOVE them!
A lot of photographers shy away from big family photo sessions for a few reasons: 1) They can be chaotic and unless you're comfortable directing large groups, they can get out of hand quickly. 2) The post-processing work is usually quite a bit more than a photo session of a single family, requiring a lot more headswaps, etc. 3) They require a completely different set of posing/directing skills than other shoots.
As one of Utah's best extended family photographers, I frequently have other photographers refer their extended family sessions out to me because I enjoy doing it and do it well. I've taken multi-generational photos for families of 10 all the way up to 70+ people! When you hire Flying Gull Photography to take your extended family photos, you get a photographer who 1) Can make a session go quickly, by taking charge, but making it fun, too! 2) Has a bag of tricks to get everyone looking and smiling, but also is a pro at head swaps, and 3) Can quickly and fluidly change between poses and groupings to give you an amazing number and variety of beautiful, professionally retouched photos.
