Family Portrait Ideas - 3 Tips For Better Family Portrait Photography

Family portraits capture a moment in time that will never happen again. Even as your family unit grows and changes, you can always remember and treasure a time in the past through family photos. You've most likely seen standard family photos before where everyone is standing in a line in front of a blank background - but your family is unique; why not go for unique portraits as well?

Your family photos don't have to be generic and typical, and you don't have to try to pretend to be like every other picturesque family out there. Instead, you can do some things to spice things up and make your family photos as special as your family.

You can transform standard family portraits into works of art through fun planning, cool digital enhancements, and museum-quality canvas printing.

Why Are Family Photos So Important?

Nowadays, everyone has a camera in their pockets through their smartphones. And, most of us are constantly snapping photographs throughout the day. But, some people may wonder, 'why do I even need family photos? I'll have all of these other photos with me instead.'

If this question has entered your mind before, you should know just how memorable family photos can be. They can create beautiful memories and document growth, and they can be wonderful mementos to pass down for generations. Additionally, if you want to turn your family photos into heirlooms to pass down throughout the generations, that's all the more reason to have your pictures professionally printed and turned into art.

You never know when your family will change, grow or even shrink. Before you realise it, all of your children will be grown up, and your little group will be entirely different; why not capture precious memories through wonderful family portraits?

What Three Things Can I Do To Make My Family Photos Stand Out From The Rest?

Once you've decided to get your family together for some fantastic pictures, it's time to figure out how to make them truly special. If you would like to do it right, you should know that there are heaps of things you can do to make the whole process fun and rewarding.

So, as you're thinking about your eventual photos, consider these tips:

Plan Your Photos. If you want photos that properly get everyone in frame and have everyone looking nice and presentable, adequate planning is vital. Rather than hastily gathering everyone together, it would be best if you set a specific date for when everyone is available. Furthermore, you also might want to plan for how you'll all be posed, what you'll wear and where you'll be.

With enough planning, your family portraits can look incredible.

Have Your Photos Digitally Enhanced. Once your photos are all taken, the process doesn't stop there. While you could simply keep those standard photos and be done with it, you should get them digitally touched up and enhanced if you really want them to shine. Digital enhancement can include applying filters to make colours pop, editing out minor mistakes or errors and more.

Furthermore, if you work with talented digital artists like the ones on our team at Art Canvas NZ, you can have your photos enhanced further. Our skilled artists can do things like make your photos look like paintings or even edit in family members who couldn't make it to the gathering.

In fact, if you have any family members who are no longer with you, we can even put them into your edited family portraits so that they can be with the family once more.

Once They're Perfect, Have Your Photos Turned Into Exceptional Wall Art. After your photos are edited and look amazing, don't stop there! Have them printed and turned into incredibly unique canvas prints for your home. Nearly everyone has art hanging up in their homes, but how many people have art starring their own family?

These canvas prints are so high quality that they could hang in a museum without looking out of place. They also come in various size options, so it doesn't matter if you want a moderately sized canvas or a large print that'll be the star of your wall, you'll find something that suits you perfectly.
