Are you looking for family picture ideas? Family photos are a great way to record your family in a moment of time, and create something that can be shared with friends and family. Now that social media is popular, it also becomes an option for profile pictures and more.
If you are looking for holiday card appropriate photos, the typical pose in front of a Christmas tree shot is pretty overdone. Most people know it is Christmas time anyway, so why not showcase something fun you have all done together in your photo? These family picture ideas can range from shots of everyone posed next to a sandcastle they made together at the beach, to a photo of the family museum adventure and everyone standing next to a giant stuffed bear. Instead of just telling you that your family looks great, your card receivers will also be asking, so how was that trip to California, anyway?
You can get a lot of neat family picture ideas by looking at what other people have posted online. For example, a shot of a newborn father taking a push up with his baby on back is a very interesting yet poignant shot. Family pictures do not always have to include the entire family, but can instead focus on illustrating the deep ties between different members.
One recommendation for family picture ideas that I find particularly interesting is, make your photos funny. After all, you only live once, and copies of your photos can be a lot funnier to share if there is a bigger story behind them. My aunt has a friend who has pulled off some shenanigans with her family. Some of the funnier examples include hiring kids and adults that looked like her family, and having them as the family photo. The best part is their kids did not even realize it was not then. When did we go there? They asked her. A less zany idea is to take normal pictures in strange places. For example, a traditional shot of a family posed on a sofa together… except the sofa is in their front yard.
