Keep Props Less & Realistic

The focal point of family photo should always be your family memebers! But the addition of a bit photo props will draw eyes of viewer too! Keep props as less and realistic as possible, in order to keep the focus on the connection between the family. For exemple, an artistic picture frame.

Keep Props Natural while Special

Having the family photo session at home allows you and your family to feel more relaxed, and you’ll have the chance to have the family daily moments and routines captured beautifully.

Choose props that will help your family interact for natural, candid photos. Incorporate props that have meaning to your family to really personalize the picture. Take family’s hobbies as an example.

Arrange the Props Around a Family Activity

Sometimes we don’t know how to arrange props in the frame, having less ideas for create new compoitions, especially for a large group of family members. I strongly recommend an activity that the family can do together. This also makes for a good mix of lifestyle and posed photos.

Instruct everyone to join an activity, like cooking, dinner and celebration. And you will find that everyone will interact for natural with many things. Take candid shots and expect for surprise!

Recommended Props

Props such as a couch, chairs, stools, or a ladder can help add different posing options to the same location. Chalkboards, signs, wooden letters, or scrabble tiles can help you spell out and convey a specific message. All in all, choose props that will help your family interact for natural, candid photos.

When choosing props, you should also consider the color of your outfits and background as well. You may want to choose neutral props that will go with anything, or props with a pop of color for added interest. But color assortment attach quite importance.
