Telephoto, light, poses...

A longer lens so you can catch them in natural poses (around 200mm?), make sure to make them feel comfortable (for instance if they don't feel comfortable with their body make sure they know you'll only "keep the good shots" i.e. head shots).

The tricky part might be to get everyone to go early in the morning or stay late in the afternoon so you don't have to shoot in harsh mid day light. There are few "golden light" calculators online.

Depending on their disposition you might even have one or two be your photo assistant and hold a medium sized reflector...

Good luck!
