When planning a family photo session, most parents want to take unique photos that are genuine to the family dynamic. By hosting a unique photo shoot, you can have pictures that will not only last a lifetime but will fit your family personality. While most families want to be unique when picture-taking, it can be difficult to decide what type of photos to actually take. Below are a few examples of unique family photo ideas to create unique memories for your family.
#1 Be Silly
One way to create unique photos is to be silly. Think of silly poses or themes to show each family members personality. You can even create a lovely photo that is serious and then pair it with a silly version for a unique family collage.
#2 Fashion Forward
For an interesting photo-op, create a fashion forward photo. Dress in high-end fashion or unique designs to create a runway style photo. You can create a luxury photo with simple items in your closet or rent pieces to create a one-of-a-kind family photo.
#3 Individual Portraits
Consider taking individual portraits of each member of your family as well as a group photo so you can create a photo wall in the home. By hiring professional photographer such as Wimbledon Studio Photography, you can take individual photos and have portraits of your children as well as yourself to hang and enjoy in the home for many years to come.
Remember to consider the family personality and dynamic. If your family enjoys video games, consider dressing up like your favorite gaming characters. If your family is sports oriented, choose a football field or sports venue as the backdrop for your photo shoot.
An interesting way to take photos is with costuming. Dress as superheroes or royalty to have an exciting photo shoot. Any costume choice can be made or rented to create a fun family photo.
#6 Color Coordination
A traditional option for family photography is to color coordinate. You can choose a color you love or base your color choice on the season. For fall, most families use black or browns to create a cohesive look. In the summer, bright blues or pinks are used as a pop of color. You can choose whatever color you enjoy to create a personalized look for your family photos.
#7 Every Season
For a wonderful photo collage of your family, consider scheduling photos of every season. Head outside during the spring, summer, fall and winter to be able to have a unique collage of your family. Color coordinate to have an even more unique look.
#8 Think Outside the Box
You can also think outside the box from a traditional photo shoot. While most people will choose traditional options for photos, you can do something interesting. Head to local train tracks or a unique brick wall in your town to have an interesting backdrop. Think of areas you enjoy in your town or unique features that can be used to create the best photos for your family.
Open up your imagination and create a fantasy style photo shoot to not only have fun but have interesting new photos for the home. Don’t just dress up for Halloween, dress up for a photo shoot too!
#10 Simple Silhouettes
A silhouette is an interesting option for family photos and one that a professional can create. Do something different and create black or gray silhouettes to remember your children’s or family profile as everyone changes with age.
