How to Take Great Family Photos
With a few tips and a little planning ahead, you’ll know how to take great family photos! Here are a few tips:
- Plan the session with your photographer. I like to meet with families in person. I visit them in their homes to plan for location, wardrobe, and the end goals for the portraits. This way, I get a sense of their style and we get to know each other. When we meet for the session, it’s like we know each other already and can hit the ground running!
- Plan outfits ahead of time and lay them out to see what they look like together. This gives you a great visual of what your portraits will look like. I like to help families consider where the portraits will hang when thinking about wardrobe as well.
- On session day, put away all the stress of getting ready and getting everyone out the door on time! Believe me, I know that’s a chore. But let it all go on the drive to the location. Take a deep breath and let’s have fun! This will allow you to relax and take the best family photos.
The Madonna Family
My session with the Madonna family was so much fun! We laughed a lot and chatted along the way while capturing some fantastic photos of the three of them. After our first set of images, we found a little place down the road where there were “beautiful weeds”. I’m always on the lookout for beautiful weeds and we found some great ones. I adore the depth and beauty of those final images. The family now has great family photos to hang on the walls in the game room and to put around the living room. They can even replace the dreaded school photo with a fantastic shot!
