Family Photo Posing Ideas

Family photo posing ideas are always helpful for both professional photographers and moms and dads with cameras wanting to capture photos!

We see SO MANY AMAZING PHOTOS of people each week with our photo challenges, and wanted to help you out on your search for those amazing and somewhat different posing ideas. So we’re very excited to begin a NEW section of I Heart Faces geared just for inspiring you with great photography posing ideas! (Look for lots of changes here in the coming months.)

Bobbi and Mike are amazing at posing families and we adore the family shot featured above. What a great idea for a family with babies! Today we’re featuring  unique family photo poses of all sizes and just in time for the Holidays!

This is so helpful. Sometimes group pictures can look so boring and stiff. I love the ideas of just holding hands and walking. They always end up laughing, either from the ackwardness of it, or just swinging their kids in the air. I get the most authentic smiles whenever hands are held!!

Great ideas and always good to refresh yourself before getting ready to make a family’s session lots of fun! Thanks.

Great ideas. I love the fence / snow pic. Will keep that in mind if we do a family ski trip this year.

I am thrilled to have come to this website after being gone for a while and learn of this new section. Posing is always the hardest part for me! I recently took this picture of a family of 12 and was thrilled with how it turned out!!

I took some today of my 8 (minus one when he got in a pooby) for next years calendar front page ~ some good, some not so, but that’s kinda how it goes with 10 minutes of good light and a stroppy 6 year old!
