Recent family session I did. I am still kicking myself for not closing my aperture more on the group shot, so everyone was in sharp focus.

I don't know that I'd kick myself too hard. I looked at this one on your flickr......the boy's a tiny bit soft, but it still looks good.

Just need to keep in mind how wide aperture, focal length and distance relate.

I think these look very good overall.

I agree with the poster above, but and I am a student of photography myself, would you have been able to get everyone in focus had you focused on the girl or boy even with the same settings?

I thought I read that when doing rows of people in group shots, to focus on the front row.

Were you shooting under an umbrella, centered above the camera?

Looks good, just curious.

Nice photos. Second photo looks tightly cropped from the bottom, Just my thought.

They look great in my opinion... I'm sure the family will be thrilled! I love the use of the guitar and suitcase in the boy's photo.. :)
