If family photos are one of your annual traditions or if you’re just looking to change up the photos that are currently hanging in your home, there are so many unique photo shoot ideas that you can use that go beyond the usual posed portraits.  With my transition into more documentary/unposed/lifestyle sessions, I thought I would share some basic ideas for your consideration!

Think of your favorite place to go for date night or family adventure. This location can be the next location for your most fun photo session yet! You go and do your thing together like normal, with the added factor of me being around, out of sight and out of the way but still around. lol 


Other create and fun ideas you can do in so many ways and at many types of locations: 

If you have a beautiful location in mind, taking family photos at dusk or even at night with the stars as your backdrop, will allow you to capture your silhouettes and give you a unique family portrait to hang in your home.

Have your family stand in front of a still body of water so that you can capture your reflections instead. 

If you still have young children in the house, use your feet to create a special image that you can frame or print on canvas. The photo could be of your feet intertwined at the foot of the bed or of your feet in the sand at the beach. 

Dress Up
The best family photos are those that capture a genuine moment between loved ones. Have your husband and son get dressed in their Sunday best to get a shot of them fastening their ties or bow-ties in the mirror. Play dress up with your little girl by placing curlers in your hair and hers and get a shot of the two of you looking in the mirror.


Sunday Morning Breakfast

Are Sunday mornings your jam? Where everyone in the family meets in the kitchen in their PJ's and makes breakfast together? Are there giggles, and fun, and memories in all the mess making? Things that you might consider basic family traditions make for amazing memory sessions! These memories your physically creating with your loved ones, can be physically documented so for year to come you have images to go with the stories. 

Don’t be afraid to get creative at your next shoot. Ask for advice or ideas if you need some extra help, I'm happy to help however I can.
