Extended Family Sessions

More than smiles, I capture the joy of your family connections.

Life with your family is a whirlwind of love, laughter, and unforgettable moments. I go beyond posed portraits to capture the essence of your family - the playful cuddles, the whispered secrets, the joyful chaos. My photos tell the story of your connections, not just how you look at the camera, but how you truly interact with each other.

Wallowa Lake and Wallowa county are playground for families! Whether it's a game of tag on the shore with the crystal-clear water lapping at your toes, a piggyback ride adventure through meadows bursting with wildflowers, with the snow-capped peaks of the "American Alps" in the background, I'll capture those candid moments that bring your family's story to life.

These are the images you'll cherish for generations to come.

"Angela took our extended families’ photos this past summer, and she absolutely worked her magic— between coordinating three 2 year olds and a 5 year old, plus lots of unexpected smoke from a local forest fire, you would never know it!! She captured smiles, each family member’s unique personality and love for one another, plus spectacular views. Our family photos turned out wonderfully, and we will all cherish them for years to come. I would highly recommend Angela Gorham Photography to anyone!" K. Moore

Angela is one of a kind! She took on the daunting task of photographing the 14 different personalities of our extended family during a very sensitive time. From the beginning, Angela walked us through each step of the process. She answered our endless questions, helped us coordinate outfits, find the best time and location on our family's property and kept our spirits joyful during our session. Angela orchestrated the perfect evening where our family was able to relish in the love that we have for each othe

From the minute Angela showed up she made us feel like we had been friends forever!! She made everyone feel so comfortable and got the best out of our very large family!

Wallowa Lake is so special to us and these pictures are a precious memory to treasure forever!!!

Tell families to take the pictures, capture the moments and love each other big!!!

Thank you Angela!!

Getting Started


I can't wait to book a session with you. Once you contact me, we book a date and start the process - with a questionnaire to help me get to know your family better! I can help as much or as little as you want with styling. When you book you will receive a family style guide as well as a link to an online styling service called "Style and Select). I will ask you to send me pictures of outfit/accessory choices and your color palette along the way to help me plan what looks best!

What happens next?


I will check in with you along the way and as we get closer to nail down the exact time and the flow of your session. We will discuss your outfit choices, locations and special props to determine our plan of action for the perfect session!

Session Day!


I always shoot within the couple hours before Sunset, and location choice will be a factor in the time that we start! I will have scouted out light and location and have a perfect plan in place to give us a great flow and take advantage of all of the beauty that Wallowa County provides!

What about posing?


Your one job is to show up and be yourself. My job is to pose you - which I will do verbally, but I will also get into the poses and show you myself. We will have a combination of posed shots, as well as a lot of movement and flow (for these I give you "prompts". Most of all I want you to have a lot of fun! I want this to be a great experience for your family where you can interact with each other, laugh and have a good time!

I have a giant zit on my face!!!


Scenario: It's session day and you woke up with a giant blemish on your nose! Never to fear! Once your final images are selected I will expertly retouch any blemishes or distractions to make your images perfect!

Next Steps


Once you have completed your session, I usually love to post sneak peeks within a couple days. Next (usually 3 weeks), I will curate a perfectly selected proof album of all of the best shots from the session. We will set up a meeting - in person or over zoom - for an ordering session where we will decide which package you would like to select, and which images you would like as your finals, as well as which prints and products you would like to order. After finals are selected, it will be a 2-3 week turnaround before you have your digitals and product.
