Every family has a personality that’s all their own and it’s something special that you should definitely be capturing on camera.
There are no rules that say your family photos need to follow a specific formula, so make your photo sessions unique by incorporating things you love.
Here are a few ideas to inspire your next family photo session.
5 Ideas for Personalizing Your Family Photos
Wear something special. Every family has something special such as a piece of jewelry or beautiful quilt lying around at home so why not use your next family photo session as the perfect excuse to use it or wear it. It’s also a great way to showcase your family history and honor a family member who is no longer with you.
Include your fur babies. If you spend a lot of time with your pets, including them in some of your family photos is a wonderful way to make your photos unique and extra special. If you’re worried about whether your pets would cooperate for photos, speak to your photographer as they should be able to provide you with some helpful tips.
Select a meaningful location. Is there a specific place where your family just loves spending time? It could be a cabin in the woods, a park in your neighborhood or even your living room at home. The location that you choose can really bring your family photos to life.
Showcase your hobbies. Highlighting your family’s hobbies is another way to add a personal touch to your family photos. Perhaps one of your children plays a musical instrument while another loves to paint or kick a ball around outside. Find ways to incorporate these special talents into some of your photos to make them all your own.
Be yourselves. Some of the best photos happen when you stop paying attention to the camera and just enjoy being together as a family. Trust that your photographer understands what you’re looking to capture and that you can simply be yourselves during your session.
Personalizing your photos really doesn’t have to be a big deal and you certainly don’t need to spend additional money either – simple touches can make all the difference. Don’t forget to ask your photographer for additional inspiration.
