I love photographing families, and when it comes to location photoshoots for families, there are lots of options in regard to location and backdrops.

I’ve put together this collection of group family photos to give you some ideas and inspiration for your own family photo shoot.

I love using different features of the location to add variety to group photos. In this family portrait, I had the boys sit on the stones next to the bridge, and with Dad with his arm on the bridge, it gives a nice casual and informal feel.

In this family photo, I’ve matched up the heights with the features of the barn to create some nice symmetry. This cute location was suggested by the client. I encourage my clients to choose locations they like or that have meaning or significance, as it will create wonderful memories when you look at these photos in your home.

A fun family group photo idea can be to have the family walking together. This is a nice way of getting natural authentic smiles from everyone!

Having your family photos during the fall is a popular option due to all the wonderful fall colors. This client chose a pretty bridge location near where the family lived for their family photoshoot.

For this family photoshoot, we chose a historic local location to provide an interesting backdrop. Stone is a timeless neutral color that looks great with whatever colors you and your family choose to wear.

The youngest family member is being held, which keeps the group compact, and stops this young gentleman from running off to do more interesting things. (His busy schedule for that day did not have photoshoot on it).
