Family pictures are definitely a great way to keep memories safe and watch the progress of each person going through life. Family pictures may seem like torture to young kids, and a pain to most adults, so here are some fun family picture ideas to make them enjoyable.
Take them outside! No matter the weather. If you have access to a waterproof camera, taking a picture in the rain while making ridiculously miserable faces may prove to be a lot of fun for the whole family. The kids will love the idea of making faces and it will be easier for them to pay attention.
Otherwise any sunny day makes for a great outdoor photo. Take one seasonally as well. A compilation of pictures looks beautiful and shows what the family looks like with the passing of the year. It can be great to make into greeting cards as well.
Taking them yourselves can be costly and time consuming, so having them done professionally is always a great option to have. That way, the clarity is always nice, and there are a ton of options for backgrounds and settings.
Matching is fun, but overused. Try playing with different color schemes when it comes to wearing things for a family picture. That way everyone gets to wear their favorite clothes without looking too miserable.
Also the good part about a professional photo is that you can get them in all sorts of sizes. That way you can have one for the wall, some for the wallets, and even some to burn later on if you get really angry with someone. Really should not do that though, as it would be a waste of money.
Family pictures are great for many different reasons. Fun to look at, fun to brag about, and fun to love to hate. Whether you take them yourselves or get them professionally done, they can be a great family experience to enjoy.
