When you get to the point in your life where you have your own family you realize how important it is to keep track of moments. With kids, time flies very easily so keeping memories and pictures is a great idea for you and for the kids as well. Family photoshoots are very popular for the winter holidays, but we think a spring photoshoot could be a lot of fun. In this article, we put together some ideas that will help you get some memorable pictures with anyone you consider your family. We included ideas for families with children, animals or even for a very close group of friends, so no type of family is left out or judged. Read along and get your poses and your loved ones ready for a fun time.
If you are a pet owner, or a couple that went for pets before children, this first suggestion is for you. Treating your pet as part of the family, or as your family entirely is a lovely thing to do, and we think you should celebrate this with a photoshoot this spring. We have two suggestions for you: an outdoor photoshoot and a studio one. For the outside pictures, you want to make sure the photographer is good with dynamic shots. This will showcase the playful part of your pet and it’s best for dogs, as they are more energetic. If you have a house pet, a studio or at home shooting will turn out just as good, but you will need more props. You can get inspired from Pinterest on how to create a backdrop, or you can show off the cuddly side of your pet and just use your comfy couch instead.
This next suggestion is for families with young children that want to capture and treasure these first years of their kids’ life. For a spring photoshoot with the family, you can choose to go for a classic picnic vibe, or get more specific and choose a theme. For example, you can have a cultural shoot and go for matching outfits that represent your heritage. You can find a lot of these outfits online, but we choose an Irish example given their rich history. Here you can see some fun onesies that celebrate the Irish essence in a way that would look great in a photoshoot. The colors of the onesies are perfect for the spring and the funny patterns will put a smile on anyone’s face.
This is probably the easiest and most fun photoshoot to organize, as you’re all adults and you can come up with ideas and poses. You don’t even need a professional photographer for this one, you just need your group of friends and a good set up. With this photoshoot we suggest an outdoors set up, as it could be more fun. You can switch it up by having group pictures and some variations such as: girls/boys and different pairs or trios. You can coordinate outfits, get or hand make some props and you will surely have a lot of fun with this one.
