lots of good advice given already. for me, 45 minutes is the max that I strive for and can reasonably expect. max.

It's always tricky to shoot a large group, whether they're a family or not, not to mention if there are kids involved.

The only suggestion I can make is always set up your equipment at least 30 minutes before the scheduled appointment, also make sure you let them know and make them understand that the sooner they cooperate, the faster the shoot will be.

Hi Guys,
Can I ask please, what lens would you predominantly use for a large group shot indoors then outdoors (same lens or different?).
This is an area I want to learn to be very good at but have NO experience in.
Thanks in advance.
