Family photographs can look repetitive after pages and pages of Christmas photos, Thanksgiving groups and posed studio shots. If you’re looking for an exciting and unique family photography session with your professional photographer, consider choosing an outdoor location instead.
Here are some ideas that will turn your family photoshoot into a fun family outing.
Get your family to go out together; picnic basket and all. A fun outing sets a good scene for a family photo session. This works for the photographer because it gives you and your family something to be doing while the artist works their magic. It also helps your kids relax and focus on having fun. A fun tip: pack food that shows up well in pictures

A series of family portraits playing catch, unpacking a picnic basket and relaxing in the grass will look adorable! It will show you in your element and eliminate superposed pictures from the family album. You could also stay till the golden sunset hour to add that golden glow to your portraits.
A day at the lakeside is a unique photo opportunity for getting a wholesome family shot. Spend the day at a cabin near the lakeside to get a pleasant shady environment for your pictures. The gleaming water lapping at a green bank will give you a serene scene.
Try fishing for a cute activity that photographs well. You can also arrange a water fight for a hilarious moment that brings out the human side in everybody. A shoot at the lakeside will bring out the natural synergies and intimacies of your family
Open Skies, Open Spaces
An open field is an excellent location for a photoshoot because it gives you a lot of space to work with. Each of your family members can get solo time with the photographer while the others relax on the side.
The open space also gives the photographer a lot of room to play with the skies and clouds. A cloud-filled sky is a quintessential portrait background. Natural sunlight is also at its best in an open space. It will make all of you look your best while the free background gives a sense of freedom to whoever looks at your portraits.
For outdoor photoshoots like these, it’s best to find a photographer who will get invested in your family and capturing your best moments.
