Five classic family poses for each session | family photographer
Posing families can be hard. But there are a few tricks.
So one thing that you can always do is get everyone at the same height and smoosh them all together! When you do this they are not just physically close but htey also look emotionally close which is something you always want in your images.
Make the kids the focus. By placing the children out front you can create an image like the one below.
This will give you a great family and sibling shot all at the same time!
Candid or shots that aren’t posed at all actually do add a great element to a session. In these images you really capture personality, and who your clients are. these are the ones where the children aren’t behaving, or mom and dad are laughing or the family is just interacting with each other as they normally do.
This is usually one of the easiest poses to start with during your session. People naturally want to stand when they are doing a family portrait so typically for myself I start here with my clients. In the session below, the sessions on the left is actually one of the last images we took while the one on the right is one of the first. AS you can see as we built the session the posing for the family got more fluid.
During your session you are going to be talking and laughing with your clients and they are going to become more and more comfortable with you and therefore, they will become pros in front of the camera!
And the sitting posing. This is a personal favorite of mine. This is a great one for little children because they can be held and comforted, and cuddled by mom and dad and it looks great, because of how naturally families will create connections in front of your camera.
Always keep in mind you are trying to create connection, art, a good time and memories all at the same time. it takes work, practice and time. But you can totally do it!!
Why should you chose me for your family photographer? Because I love you and your family. I love each little personality that you bring with you. Kids are fun and I really truly love working with them. So when they are driving you nuts during a session and you want to pull the plug, go home and make bed time 6:30pm, I am in my element. I love that. I can’t even tell you how many times I have said “if it feels weird it looks great.” Or “it feels like chaos, but trust me.”
My Frients (that’s a client who has turned into a friend. I made it up but all words at some point were made up!) will tell you I speak the truth. So trust me and come jump in front of my camera and let’s make memories come to life. Digital files come with my sessions, large sessions include wall art. You can book at email@example.com.
Just know that Photography (and kids) are. my. jam. I love it. I love the meeting of new people, the challenge and changes in every shot. The way it makes me use both my left and right side of my brain. In addition to shooting on location in and around DFW (willing to travel if ya need me) I have an awesome studio in Gunter Texas I use for kiddos under 3, studio portraiture and newborn babes. I totally dig getting ideas from my clients and then turning them into something special that they want to hang on their wall or share with their family and friends for years to come.
Newborn photography, children’s photography and family photography are my focus. It is what I love and what I pour my heart into everyday. It is a job but its also something I enjoy, and isn’t that the best kind of job? I would love to talk to you about your family and creating something special. I do travel and shoot on location around the Dallas metroplex. Contact me for more information.
Photography is art and so are you. I think it is so important to find a family photographer, newborn photographer who understand who you are as a family as well as one who understands what you are like as individuals. I am ready to do that for you. So let’s book a family photography session. Let’s capture your child as they are right this minute. Book now at firstname.lastname@example.org 817.733.0383
