How to Capture the Best Family Portraits

Raising a family is a rewarding experience. Between all the hectic day-to-day activities taking place in your household, it can be hard to find the time to capture the important moments in your family. Before you know it, your children will be all grown up and preparing to leave the nest! Create memories that will last a lifetime with a professional family portrait session. Here are some things to consider when preparing to take your family portrait.

Chose the Right Location

Choosing the perfect location for your family portrait is the best way to ensure that the essence of your family is properly documented. Locations that have sentimental value can be used as great backdrops for your family portraits. Maybe there’s a local park where your family spends a lot of quality time, or maybe you have a cottage where your family like to relax. These scenic locations can add a personal charm to your family pictures. Shooting your family photos in a special location will help to create an intimate and personalized atmosphere that will capture what is truly unique about your family.

Don’t be Afraid to Have Fun

It’s important to make sure that you and your loved ones are relaxed before taking a family portrait. A good family portrait reflects the individual personality of each family member. If anyone feels tense or uncomfortable, the portrait won’t turn out as beautiful as it could be. Wear something that best represents you and makes you feel comfortable. Take a few serious and staged pictures, but also have the photographer take some more goofy or candid shots as well. The more relaxed you and your family are during your photoshoot, the easier it will be for your true personalities to shine through.
