Incredibly Creative Poses for Family Photos

There are several family photos posing ideas that can be adopted to keep specific memories fresh forever. Though these ideas help, the craziness, the cool quotient and the enthusiasm of your family define how the photograph will turn out to be.

Time passes and never returns; however, we do have the privilege of capturing those memorable moments in our cameras and storing them for ages in the form of photographs.

Watching old photographs brings a smile to everybody’s face. It’s merely so nostalgic! Rather than always clicking random pictures, it would be great to have unique family photos framed in the house.

Fun Family Photo

Beautiful Family In Their Backyard

Have all the family members dressed in the same colour T-shirt and a pair of jeans. For example, blue T-shirts and jeans.


You can also have T-shirts in two colours if your family is substantial.

Having fun as a family

Have the women wear yellow, and the men wear green. Or else, you could have the kids wear one colour, and the parents can wear another. Now lie down in such a way that all the heads are aligned to form a circle. Ask the photographer to take the snap from above.

You could also have everybody lie down in a line and have everybody bend their knees. Have everybody look backward and then the picture should be taken. It will be quite a fun picture! You could also make formations or stand in angles. Standing in ‘v’ formations with the father at the tip of the ‘v’ and the others standing in the ‘v’ formation is also fun.

If the family comprises a large number of members, then the best family photo poses would be on the patio or small stools placed outdoors or the stairs (indoors).

Get the family to dress in two contrasting colours. For example, white and black or red and green. Have the pants colour coordinated as well? You could also have the women in the family dressed in white and the men in the family dressed in black. That gives a beautiful look.

Then have them stand on the stairs right till the base, with the colours of white and black evenly spread out. You could also do this outdoors. Get a few folding stools and allow the elders and those with babies to be seated, while the rest can stand behind them.

Outdoor Family Photo

Family Building Snowman In Garden

If it’s winter in your area and you have snow all around, make use of the excellent opportunity. Make different snowmen in the snow representing each member of the family.


You could also make the snowmen headless and ask each family member to stand behind their snowmen. This way, only the heads can be seen, with the body being that of a snowman. This pose is excellent for Christmas and New Year cards.

Cool Family Photo

Extended Family Group

If you all have spent time over the years playing scrabble, then have a picture with the scrabble tiles. Just give each person a scrabble tile holder with tiles spelling their names in them. Have each person hold the pipe in front of them and pose for the shot.

You could also stand behind a tree, shortest or smallest member first and the taller ones behind. Have each one pop their head from behind the bark, such that one can only see the heads popping out of the bark.


You do not need to specially go to the studio to have this unique family photo poses captured on camera. You could also ask a family friend to come down and take the family photos for you. Be as creative as you want and create your very own fresh family photo pose ideas.
