1. Use Props To Bring Spice To The Photos
Using props is fun for a family to do and the prop can be anything... the possibilities are endless! Talk to the family beforehand and see what it is that they love. Do they have a sport that they all enjoy to play together or a car that would be fun to include? It could even be something simple like bringing along a picnic blanket and basket so they can relax and have a picnic while taking their photos.
2. Capture Their Silhouette
If you are doing the family photo shoot during the time of a sunset, try and plan to capture a silhouette of the family together. Seeing them stand together holding hands or looking at one another can be stunning and make for a wonderful portrait. Kimberly Reid mentions in the guide that in order to get a good silhouette shot, its important to have a blank canvas behind your subjects. One good way to do this is to get on the ground and shoot them up, so the sky is your canvas.
