Taking the best family picture can be daunting, simply for the fact that that the professional will be working with a group of individuals, where everyone needs to be on the same page. To highlight each subject’s best features and get the best light for the shot is vital for good results.

Black and white portraits

While most photographers choose studio lighting, or indoor lighting nowadays, capturing family portraits in black and white is a great way to make a dramatic impact. Black and white pictures are classic and timeless, and it creates high contrast pictures that are suitable for children, as well as adults, for family photography.


Choosing clothes for a black and white family photoshoot should be planned ahead, and one should discuss with the professional photographer ahead of time. The location will matter, as the lighting will be different, for outdoors and indoors. Most photographers will accommodate black and white pictures if that is what the family has specified.

Indoor family portraits

While indoor photography immediately makes one think of the studio setting, it is important to remember that it can also be in the bedroom, the child’s room or the family room in the house. It can also be a coffee shop or a museum, depending on if the shoot is a themed photoshoot as many families wish to shoot in a familiar setting that is aesthetically pleasing and comfortable.

In the case of indoor settings outside of the house or the studio, it is important to color coordinate the clothing according to the surroundings to ensure that the subject of the shoot, the family stands out and does not fade away into the background.

Natural light portraits

Planning an outdoor photoshoot translates to a larger variety of shots. There are so many options for background, themes. This will ensure that the pictures turn out different from one another which is difficult to recreate in a studio, although not impossible with meticulous planning.


Outdoor sessions can highlight the places that are special for the family, although it may be difficult, in the case of elderly family members. Outdoors can even mean the backyard, with the right setting, can be transformed into the perfect cozy spot for the family to gather for the family photoshoot. Communicating with the photographer of the expectation is vital for the best-captured pictures. Outdoor settings also make people more comfortable and act natural than an indoor setting, which may stifle a lot of subjects.


While there are various family photographers who are proficient in different settings, most will specialize in certain types of settings and lightings, therefore, it is best to research and discuss ahead of time. The price of the shoot is another factor to consider before hiring the best suited professional for the job. 

Taking candid shots of the family outing, or a special occasion that is celebrated in the family is a great way to capture memorable times. Photography is an art and professionals work for years to gain the experience to take the best shots for your family.
