My family will be getting together later this month and I have been asked to attempt to do some family pictures, I am more into sports and still life and have not had to much family photography experience.

My question is what are some tips in photographing large families(2 older parents and 4 kids ranging from me age 22 to the oldest 41. 2 of the kids have kids of there own so 9 people total). I don't have large studio equipment so these will most likely be taken outdoors with natural light, however i do have a vivitar flash with a wireless trigger to maybe be used as a fill light.

Thanks in advance for any advice

Some may complain - there is a Discuss Kids & Family section, which is used to answer these questions. You are now posting in the photo sharing section :-)

Tips:

1. Outside
2. Try and find something with a slope to prevent people hiding behind each other.
3. Select the time of day to prevent flat lighting
4. Use shade to your advantage
