A family portrait is a testament to the love and the great bond that survives and flourishes spanning across generations. You can lock away a moment of great family life forever. Here are five poses to get it right.
The Classic Sit-Down
Photographers love the simple sit on the sofa and smile. It gives each member almost equal space in the shot. You can play with the arms and torso to get various angles too. Use variations in the light setting.
It’s a great capture for child-free couples, a small family of four outside their home or at a wedding with the whole family. Both outdoor and indoor settings suit this style as the backdrop.
Relaxed Casual Picnic
With a picnic spread in an outdoor setting, add some fun to boring family portrait.
Couples with toddlers can hold them in their arms or lap, they can lie down or hold objects or show other physical displays of affection.
In case of a single-child family, the photographer gets the couple to hug each other holding the child in the middle. This could work in any setting as well. For bigger families, two members can hug each other with others hugging each member behind the other while facing the camera.
Up in the Air
Candid portraits with babies or little children made easy using this pose. Lift the child up and swing your arms gently to get the desired effect. For a natural look, play with the child to engage him and ensure safety.
An easy pose is holding hands and walking with family. It can be improvised to the family looking back and faces the camera with bodies only half turned towards it.
Remember to be patient and capture great memories with your family with these great poses.
