Ideas For Unique Family Photos

If you have decided that you are ready to gather up everyone and get a family portrait taken, you might want to consider some of the ways you can get the most unique photos possible. To help you find the best option for your family, take a moment to review the following ideas.

Old Time Photos

These can be a lot of fun because it allows your family to dress up in clothing from many years ago. Call around to various portrait studios to ask about this type of session. You will want to make sure that they have a back drop that would be suitable for the look you are going for, such as an old saloon or a horse stable. You can also inquire as to whether they have their own costumes to let you pick from or if you need to bring your own. If you have to come up with your own costumes for the photo session, you can look through used clothing and costume stores to find everything that you need. 

Flying Through The Air

You will need to find a professional photographer that has excellent skills when it comes to image manipulation through computer programs. You can have a lot of fun by having the photographer take several photos of everyone in the family in various poses. Then, he or she, will edit the photos so it appears some of you are floating in the sky, jumping out of a hot air balloon, or being tossed in the air by another family member. The final product will make it appear as though you and your family were doing some crazy stunts, but you were never actually in harm's way as it is all a computer trick.

Snuggling Under A Blanket

This type of photo can be taken outdoors or in a studio as long as the photographer has access to backdrops that will help tell the story. The idea is to show that it is cold outside, whether there is snow in the background or autumn leaves falling to the ground. You can your family will snuggle together under a large blanket to help show how close the family is. The nice thing about this type of photo is that you do not have to be very picky over what everyone is wearing because most of your clothes are going to be covered by the blanket.

With those unique suggestions in mind, you should have a much easier time figuring out a family photo idea that will work best for you.
