I received an email the other day asking about Holiday Portrait Ideas for families and small groups. So…I wanted to share some portrait ideas and posing tips to help you create Amazing Shots this Holiday Season.
Here’s a portrait we just created for our Digital Creation’s Club and it’s called “Home For The Holidays”. Remember what I said before? You should always name your sets and themes that you advertise. Go ahead and swipe our new name “Home For The Holidays”
Pic #1 – Home For The Holidays Theme (Family Pose)
Posing Tip: Try to always group subjects tight together avoiding gaps. Use the children as bookends to complete the pose.
Pic #2 – “Home For The Holidays Theme (Children Posing)
Posing Tip: Have the children look at a present or a book. This will help create a more natural pose and the parents will love it!
Pic #3 – Presents By The Tree Theme (Children Posing)
Posing Tip: Have your subjects touch hands and lightly touch heads. This will create a sense of closeness and bring the image together.
Sometimes it’s the simple things that make a great portrait. It can be a certain pose or a new portrait idea that inspired you to create a unique shot.
Feel Free to study these images and swipe these ideas to use in your own photography sessions.
