Fun Family Photo Shoot Ideas

There is nothing quite like capturing memories with your loved ones. Are you someone who enjoys taking beautiful pictures of you and your family?  Then you are probably always on the lookout for inspiration for your next photo shoot. Below are some unique photo ideas that you’ll love.

Family history

Are you a fan of the photos that your grandparents or even great grandparents have taken? I know I am! We can have some fun and replicate them? 

First and last day of school

For the first day of school, get some fun pictures of your child getting ready. You can then do the same on the day that they graduate from secondary school so that you can create cool “before and after” pictures. You can even choose to add on university photos later.

Generational photos

Photos are one of those items that are passed down through generations so why not create one that future family members can treasure. Take a photo with your daughter, mom and grandma to show the generations of women in your family or any other mix of family members that you want to place in a picture together.

Pregnancy pictures

There are many fun ways to show your progress through pregnancy and documenting it with photos is the perfect way to capture this time in your life. Years from now you’ll be able to take your child through your journey before you got to meet them and share that special moment with them.

Pet portraits

If your pet is a member of your family then capturing memories with them is just as important.  There are so many great ways to take some amazing photos whether it’s outside at a park or in the comfort of your own home.


Save the date

Getting married in the near future? Taking a quirky couple photo where your wedding date is displayed is a lovely way to invite people to your weddingYou can do anything from writing the date on the bottom of your shoes to using chalkboards or balloons to display the date.

Gender reveal

Why not make finding out the gender of your baby a fun surprise for everyone by turning it into a fun photo that you can send around. Some cute ideas include releasing pink or blue balloons out of a box or you could incorporate a cute color frame to hold around your belly.

Seniors shoots

In America Senior Shoots are so important to the modern family…  don’t you think it’s a great idea? In UK, I can’t find the direct translation because we have 6th form - we don’t have what they call seniors. Can we coin a name? Sweet 16 Shoots? Eitherway, photos are memories and what age do you ever look better?
