Making Memories: 5 Super Creative Family Photo Ideas


Need a new family photo to hang up in the lounge? Looking for some inspiration for the perfect snap?

There are tons of ways to organize family photos and we’ve got plenty of posing ideas and awesome locations to share.

If you’re looking for some inspiration for your next adorable family photograph, we’re here to help. Here are some of our great ideas to motivate you, so you can have a sweet memory to keep for years to come.

  1. Keep It Classic

The easiest family photoshoot idea is the classic family-together smiling shot. Just gather everyone on a cozy sofa or an armchair and keep it simple but effective.

When it comes to posing, you can all smile at the camera and hug one another for that cute family photograph.

For a more candid style, you can all laugh or talk to one another to make the photograph more natural.

If you like, you can convert image to black and white. Classic photos look great in both color and black and white, and the latter offers a more timeless feel.

  1. Don’t Forget the Pets

For an adorable family shot, don’t forget the pets! Pets are also important members of the family, and many people love to include them in their special family photographs.

Pets like dogs prefer natural light, so head outside to prepare for the perfect family snap. Remember to avoid using flash when snapping animals; they’re afraid of it and it can also hurt their eyes.

  1. The Kitchen Isn’t Just for Cooking

Inject a dose of fun to your next family shot and head to the kitchen. Cooking with kids makes for an exciting and funny snap, plus it brings you closer. If you don’t fancy cooking, even simply messing around with the pots and pans makes for a cute family photo.

Images in the kitchen look a lot more natural and unique than the typical family portrait, so this one is for you if you’re looking for something a bit different.

  1. Take It Outdoors

It’s great to be out in nature, plus it looks pretty in a photograph too. You don’t need to venture too far to achieve a lovely family snap.

Why not go for a short walk with your loved ones in a nearby park? Or perhaps there’s a pretty recreation reserve nearby?

Plan your shoot for golden hour just before sunset for dreamy lighting that makes for a great photo.

  1. The Fall Family Photo

If you can wait until fall, the weather conditions offer beautiful conditions for a family photograph. Head to a pumpkin patch and pose with the fiery golden leaves, the warm orange pumpkins, and the bare trees in the background.

Beautiful autumn colors and features present the incredible opportunities for any family photo taken outdoors.

Ready to Take Your Next Family Photo?

Done right, family photographs can become heartfelt treasures to look back on and share for years to come. If you have children, you’ll be grateful for capturing their ever-changing looks in their growing years. After all, time seems to go so quickly nowadays!
