Example Group Formals List

July 24, 2019



Group portrait time can be overwhelming. But having a plan and a list can help keep us all on point. And obviously not all families are the same. There will be more groupings in some cases than others. Some families have tricky family dynamics where certain family members don't get along. Informing the photographer of this ahead of time is best. This is just a tool to help you plan for who should be included in the formal portrait time. And if you can put the names of each family member on the appropriate line or have a "point person" who knows who everyone is, this can help things go quickly and smoothly.
