Family Photo Ideas
When thinking about your family portrait session, it’s nice to have some ideas about what to wear, what props to bring, what to do, and what you’ll do with the portraits after everything is over! Here are some helpful tips on each of these:
WHAT TO WEAR: Choose coordinating colors for each member of the family. We don’t need everyone in the same color but the colors do need to coordinate so that they blend well together. Also, consider the environment and background of your images. Finally, be yourself! Choose clothing that makes you feel and look your best!
WHAT PROPS TO BRING: If you have items that are special to your family, bring them to your portrait session! If the whole family loves football, bring one to throw around and we’ll get some action shots. If you are musicians, bring some instruments and we will make those an important part of the family photos. Your personality as a family can shine…these are for you!
WHAT TO DO: You may feel like you don’t know what to do during the family photo session. Don’t worry because your photographer will help you with this. At Tara Flannery Photography, we like to get posed shots of everyone smiling and looking at the camera and we will help with all of the posing. We also like to get those less-planned connection moments that are the beautiful in-between. We will help guide those as well.
WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR PORTRAITS: Before your family photo session, think about what you’d like to ultimately do with the family portraits. Do you have a space on the wall where you and the kids can admire the portrait every day? Or maybe you’d like an album that can sit on the coffee table and be shown to Grandma when she comes to visit. A little pre-planning for these end goals goes a long way towards creating a beautiful end piece that shows off your gorgeous new portraits!
Family Portraits for The Hickman Family
The Hickman family was so excited about their family portrait session. Mom and baby girl had matching purple tutus. I love the color and how it beautifully coordinates with the natural greenery in our scene. And Dad blends seamlessly with the family too. Since she was turning two, we got some individual portraits of baby girl as well. She will be able to look back on the family photos and see how very special she is. You can see the love in Mom and Dad’s faces. The little smirk in the second photo is just precious!
