Time passes and never returns, however, we do have the privilege of capturing those memorable moments in our cameras and storing them for ages, in the form of photographs. Watching old photographs brings a smile to everybody's face. It's simply so nostalgic! Rather than always clicking random pictures, it would also be great to have unique family photos framed in the house. There are several creative poses for a family photo that one can try out for clicking interesting pictures. Such family photo shoot poses are always fun to take, because it involves prior preparation and oft there are loads of funny things that happen while preparing for such photo sessions.
Fun Family Photo
Have all the family members dress in the same color T-shirt and pair of jeans. For example, green T-shirts and blue jeans. You can also have T-shirts of two colors if your family is large. Have the women wear yellow and the men wear green. Or else, you could have the kids wear one color and the parents can wear another. Now lie down in such a way that all the heads are aligned to form a circle. Ask the photographer to take the snap from above. You could also have everybody lie down in a line and have everybody bend their knees. Have everybody look backwards and then the picture should be taken. It will be quite a fun picture! You could also make formations or stand in angles. Standing in 'v' formations with the father at the tip of the 'v' and the others standing in the 'v' formation is also fun.
If the family comprises a large number of members, then the best family photo poses would be on the stairs (indoors) or on small stools placed outdoors. Get the family to dress in two contrasting colors. For example, white and black or red and green. Have the pants color coordinated as well. You could have all the women in the family dressed in white and all the men in the family dressed in black. This gives a wonderful look. Then have them stand on the stairs right till the base, with the colors of white and black evenly spread out. You could also do this outdoors. Get a few folding stools and allow the elders and those with babies to be seated, while the rest can stand behind them.
Outdoor Family Photo
If it's winter in your area and you have snow all around, make use of the wonderful opportunity. Make different snowmen in the snow representing each member of the family. The distinguishing feature about these snowmen are that they lack heads. Make them headless. Now, ask each family member to stand behind their respective snowmen. This way only the heads can be seen, with the body being that of a snow man. This pose is really great for Christmas and New Year cards.
Cool Family Photo
Check the interests of your family. If as a family, you all have spent time over the years playing scrabble, then have a picture taken with the scrabble tiles. Just give each person a scrabble tile holder with tiles spelling their names in them. Have each person hold the tile in front of them and pose for the shot. This snap stands as a wonderful reminder of all the wonderful times you spent together as a family playing scrabble. You could also stand behind a tree, shortest or smallest member first and the taller ones behind. Have each one pop their head from behind the bark, such that one can only see the heads popping out of the bark.
You do not need to specially go to the studio to have these unique family photo poses captured on camera. You could also ask a family friend to come down and take the family photos for you. Be as creative as you want and create your very own cool family photo pose ideas. It's always a great joy to remember the wonderful days of the past through photographs.
