family reunion in Tuscany

-What is a Family Reunion in Tuscany?-

A family reunion is an occasion when many members of an extended family congregate. In recent years, travel has been democratized by record low fares and sharing economy solutions, making this kind of gathering even more convenient. For this reason, our clients have chosen Tuscany to meet their loved ones. In our region, it’s easy to find wonderful Villas with large gardens, swimming pools, and stunning views within a 1-hour drive from Lucca, Siena, or Florence.

How does a photoshoot work?

Most of the time, we meet the families at their venue, and we stay within the property. Usually, we start with some posed portraits, involving everyone. Then, besides these hang-on-your-wall-worthy photos, we dedicate ourselves to different smaller combinations.

Cross-cultural

Since 2012, we had the opportunity to photograph several family reunions, and it’s great to see so many different cultures. While children and teenagers have more things in common, we especially loved to relate to older generations.

Italian origins

Many of these families have Italian origins, and their trip is also a journey back in time to reconnect with their roots.

Different families, different outfits

What to wear for family photos?

There are many aspects to keep in mind when deciding what to wear for your family photos. Of course, the most important part of your family portrait is to document the love that you feel for each other. These family photo outfit ideas below will give you some examples of how our former clients dressed, but please keep in mind that each family is different – and each family member has his character. Therefore, we’re here to help you with a few basic suggestions, but it’s essential that you feel comfortable: if you feel good, you will look good!

Very large groups

Having a great family portrait is going to be important to your history and future memories. For this reason, our package for this kind of session always includes two photographers, so big numbers are not a problem for us. Throughout these years, as you can see below, we’ve had the chance to work with large, sometimes very large groups. At the biggest family reunion that we photographed, about 50 people were invited, and it was a fun challenge to find the right location for their shot!

Anniversary and birthday celebrations

Very often, a family reunion in Tuscany is planned for a special occasion. In this photoshoot, for instance, two sisters celebrated their mom’s 70th birthday and their parent’s 50th wedding anniversary.

Fun moments for all the family

Then besides the large family groups, we usually gather immediate family from each branch of the tree. We also love to take parents and children portraits, and grandparents with grandchildren. Considering that we’re working on separate groups, there’s always a moment to relax and take a break.

A family reunion photoshoot is a funny way to spend an afternoon together, sharing beautiful moments and lots of laughs. Staying outdoors, enjoying the Tuscan sun, or jumping in the pool.
