Here are 4 great ways to pose families straight from Kimberly Reid and the Learning The Basics of Family Photography.
1. A Large Family Sitting
Height and variation are important when shooting a family portrait. You do not want to have everyone at eve level as that can make things boring.
2. Jumping Pose
Having fun at a family photo session is so important and everyone loves to jump in pictures. Possibly have the children jump while dad is stealing a kiss from his wife. Just make sure you talk with your clients to make sure this is something they are all comfortable doing.
3. Sitting on Ledges
You can find so many different locations that have a great ledge you can sit on. Perhaps a doc or a ledge outside of a really cool office building in the city. Alternating the way they sit from adult, child, adult, child to differentiate levels and keep the eye moving is important. With families, it is also fun to take some shots while they are all looking at the camera and others while they are looking at each other.
4. Shy Parents
This is a great pose where the parents look like they are a little timid about having their photo taken. They will be in the background but the focus will be on the kids.
