Not enough chairs or stools, and we try to do a standing group if possible, keeping family units together. The location changed mid shoot due to the cold weather, and we ended up here to finish the shoot. If we were able to plan this, we would have brought our stools to the shoot. It was all supposed to be at a nature reserve but the temps went down and the winds went up while we were waiting on all the family to show up on location.

With my family and friend events, everyone has seen it as being meaningful that I did spend the time to select the best lens for the best situation. I’m not saying one should constantly be changing lenses: just that there are specific ones that are better for the large group shots before changing to another for close-ups. Not much fuss, and much less PPing later.

Thanks, everyone, for all the advice. I am flying to see mom this weekend. I'm also attending a wedding, so that means a suit, etc. I was trying to limit myself to my small ThinkTank bag (photo below), but maybe that's not a good idea. I'm very familiar with one of the places my mom will be, but not familiar with the other place (one of my sisters bought a new house this summer). My only choices for lenses to take are the 16-35 and the 24-105. I'll take them both just to give myself the best chance to get some photos that the family will enjoy.

If nobody is bothered ... then that's just fine, of course!


Comment and (constructive) criticism always welcome.
