How to Have Memorable Family Photos

Steps to Make Your Family Photo Stand Out - in a Good Way


Family portraits are an important part of our culture. They help catch our children growing up, our changing families, even our pets through the years. Some family photos turn out hilariously and unintentionally bad. Don't let your family photo be among what a family photo shouldn't look like.

1. Don't wear matching outfits

One of many cheesiest things you can do in a family photo is to dress your family all inside the same outfit. Add some especially bad a part of an outfit, for example an ugly, holiday themed sweater and your loved ones photo gets to be a stale cliché or even a joke. Dressing with some sort of theme, say for example a common color is okay, but ditch the Cosby sweater for some thing natural looking and real.

2. Don't stage your photo


It's one thing to tell an account with your photo, there is however a fine line between that product a staged photo that looks silly and over the top. The best family photos are the ones that look natural. Take a household photo where everyone acts themselves and they are better.

3. Control your background

Going for a family photo using a busy background leaves your offered to be the subject of photo bombers; animals acting like, well, animals, something like that so distracting that it takes away from your photo. If you are taking your photo in your own home, you want to make sure you have a neutral backdrop for photography so that you don't have something in private that you don't want there, like a television or even a window. 

If you take a lot of family photos, you might want to consider getting a backdrop from That way you have a neutral backdrop that isn't distracting the viewer of the photo from the family.

4. Make sure everybody smiles

This will likely seem like a no-brainer, but nothing ruins a household photo quicker when compared to a surly teenager or crying toddler. Make certain that everybody is comfortable and happy to your family photo so that the photo doesn't always have one person looking miserable while most people are happy.

Taking a family photo mustn't be some staged and cheesy affair. Ditch the matching clothes, busy past and crying children and go instead for a natural and casual vibe. Letting all your family members be themselves are certain to get your the best family photos.
