This pose is a bit more entertaining version of the previous group photo idea. Ask family members to sit one behind another and make sure that every face is visible. Let the tallest people be in the “head of the train”. This pose works great for the large group photos as it lets to arrange even 5 people in an organic and funny way into a frame.

Seated Poses for Family group Portraits

Seated Poses for Family group Portraits

There are two reasons I prefer to start family group shooting with everyone taking relaxing poses. First of all, in this position I can remain at the same eye level with both parents and children and simultaneously, learn more about them. Secondly, relaxing and holding each other closely lets models become comfortable with a camera pointed straight at them.

To take such a group photo you need to choose the proper place. Make sure it is clean enough and people would be comfortable to sit there. The safety also matters a lot. Ask the family group to sit as tight as possible. Holding hands and hugging would be even better as these holistic ties displayed in the group shot will make it heartwarming and special.

Lean on Something

Lean on Something

Some group photo poses look very natural. That is why I recommend prefer taking lifestyle photographs. Leaning in a tree or a wall is quite a common habit and most people often do it in the street. Try different positions with family members. Ask your group to link hands or hold the child. When you have a low beautiful branch or a hole in the wall, make the child stand there while parents are holding him/her. Funny group photo ideas like this make models interact with each other in a special way and result in catchy and emotional frames. View other portrait photography poses in the same manner.

Holding Hands Walk

This is one of the most heartwarming group picture poses. Ask parents to join hands with children and take a short walking around, not just posing. This way you can capture beautiful group portrait in a natural way. If parents and children look at each other instead of nervous peeping at a camera, a walk like this will let the family feel like they are alone. This is a lucky chance for the photographer to take sincere photographs.
