Awesome Family Photo Ideas
One common question I receive from families is how to plan their portrait sessions. They are often unsure where to go or what to do. Today I’m going to talk more about family photo ideas. I’ve got options that will help spark ideas to plan your own portrait session.
Personalize Your Family Photo Session
Sometimes, a studio would be perfect for your family photos. Other times, you may want to select locations or activities that are more meaningful to you. When considering options, think about the interests in which your family is involved, and how you like to spend time together. Also think about activities and locations you all enjoy. If you select something important to you, then you are well on your way to creating a memorable experience. Family portrait sessions last around one hour, depending on the location and activity. When outdoors, we generally work in the last two hours before sunset. When indoors, we can work almost any time.
Some location/activity ideas include:
> My St Paul photo studio
> Your home (outdoors or indoors)
> A favorite park
> Riding a rented trolley, canoe or boat
> A fair or carnival with rides
> A destination or public garden
> A barn
> A bowling alley
> Ice or roller skating rink
> A playground
> A baseball field
