20 Brilliant Family Photo Ideas

24450

Choosing the right clothes, location and theme for your family photo shoot can be exciting. But over posing and meaningless props can leave your photos lacking.
We’ve seen families leaping in the air, the awkward relative sandwich and the glamour/rustic contrast in many photographers’ portfolios. While lovely, there’s nothing particularly unique about them.

While the regular family portrait is probably good enough, you certainly want to do something that is out of the ordinary, one that will easily crack a smile when it is looked at, or one that even nana will proudly show off to her bingo buddies.

To inspire you to make really special family portraits, we have prepared 20+  awesome family portraits shot by photographers with an intriguing view of things. If you are the kind who never says no to family, you’ll probably enjoy this post as much as I did making it.
