Over the years, I've developed a schedule I follow when doing family pictures. It's not set in stone, and I adjust as needed to fit each family, but 90% of the time this schedule is my go to and works really well.
Every 5 years this family returns to Pioneer Park in St. George, Utah to re-create photos of the past that were taken in this same spot.
Even as an adult, living the places I lived I still thought of spring and fall as relatively short seasons. Then I moved to Cedar City.
I might make your husband dance with you at our sessions, but we don't have to tell him that before the session ;)
I love when individual families are excited about their own pictures at extended family sessions!
