Studio Family Portrait Photography Ideas

 When you book a photo session in a studio you have many options to create a memory that you will enjoy forever, because a family photograph captures the spirit of your family. It is a keepsake that will remind you of the thought that you put into creating that moment. Finding the right setting, the appropriate outfits and the best photographer.
There are so many portrait ideas to choose from and to showcase that your family is one of a kind. It can be an outdoor session celebrating a season, a place or an occasion. Or it can be a choreographed indoor shoot designed for you. Either way, the ones who make it unique and memorable are the people in the photo, your family.

Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

Holiday photos.
Christmas is the favorite time to gather the family and have a keepsake and gift for family that lives far away.
Thanksgiving a reminder of getting together to give thanks.
Easter, a classic with the Easter bunny and a new Sunday bonnet.
Hanukah, lighting the menorah together.

Photos with newborns to introduce a new member of the family. It is always a treat to let other siblings hold the baby.

Multiple background photos, this is a great idea to compliment different outfits and poses.

Styling, so that you have the best look including fashion and accessories. This attention to detail by a professional stylist will make the difference with special accessories and have everybody in the family looking and feeling great.

Posed photos, It is a good idea to see some shots and see what you want. Pinterest is great place to find ideas. It is also a good way to have the rest of the family participate and make for an interactive photo shoot.

Natural interactive photos are also nice and contribute to putting everybody at ease. It is a nice way to start a shoot and sometimes the best photos are when you are caught off guard.

Being a team, if your family is a fan of sport or a special team wearing the uniform is a fun way to show your affiliation and support.

Recreating moments or old photographs that have a special meaning for you and you and your family.

Bold family portraits that leave the conventional and showcase an inspiration or fantasy.

 A portrait within a portrait. It is amazing the results you get with a frame as a prop.

 A composite family portrait. A portrait and within another portrait.

 Photos with props highlight your favorite sport, movie or activity.

 Levitation, float into surrealism and set your family on the light side of gravity,
Each picture is a work of art. Every time you look at your photo, memories of that special moment will flood to you and lift your spirits. Some people always carry these with mementos with them as a reminder of their loved ones and the special bond they share.

Remember to shop for the best photographer and be sure that you are in zinc with whomever you choose. True beauty comes from being comfortable and happy.
