Camp it up
A shot round the campfire during early evening light looks super cosy; give everyone marshmallows on a stick for a sweet and tasty prop!
Our outdoor family photo ideas so far have been in the natural world, but that’s not the only place you can capture great outdoor pictures; city photo shoots make for some interesting and modern images. Use awesome architecture and interesting doorways to frame your fam.
This fun photo idea involves styling a photo shoot on a country road and taking a shot of your family in front of your car, eyeing up a map. Or perhaps you can mark your journey with snaps of significant landmarks, or even ‘Welcome to...’ signs.
It’s all beachy
A beach photo shoot gives you an instantly beautiful backdrop – you can choose the beach itself or the ocean to include in your shot. Don’t forget props of beach balls, buckets, spades and snorkels!
Do your family all support a sports team? Get your matching uniforms on for a team photo – or better still, go to a match and get a pic with the pitch in the background.
