Planning a family photoshoot each year, or even every six months, is a great way to document all the little changes that occur in your family over time. Family photoshoots in wintertime can be particularly fun, because what could possibly be cuter than fluffy scarves, hats and mittens?
If you’re thinking of tackling the family photo shoot yourself, the first thing you’ll need to do is think of a theme and choose a suitable location. You’ll also need some basic equipment like a tripod as well as a camera with a remote shutter release or at the very least a timer. Once you’ve got these essentials ready, try some of these ideas for a successful homemade family photoshoot.
1. Coordinate your outfits
Any time you have more than one person in the same photo, you will need to put some effort into coordinating your outfits. This will help you avoid certain colours or patterns that clash, and avoid having too much of one colour in your photos, which can end up looking drab and boring. Of course, coordinating your outfits is not the same as matching your outfits, which can actually end up looking a bit cheesy. Just think about a natural colour scheme beforehand and try to keep patterns like stripes or checks to a minimum.
