Best Poses For A Family Session

Whether you're a client, future client, photographer, or just plain curious about what we do at Lentille Photography, below are some of our go-to best poses for a family session.

Flying High

Get that baby in the air! We get some of the BEST smiles from kiddos when they're being tossed up into the sky by mom or dad.

Pro tip: have them slightly angle baby toward the camera so you can see baby's face and profile better.

Lift some weights

This is my absolute go-to when we have a toddler that isn't as into the session as we'd like. Whether that be running away, picking up rocks and throwing them, or just general grumpiness, getting them up on dad's shoulder is the cure. Their mood shifts instantly and we get some great smiles then!

Pro tip: try to have everyone on the same plane so you maintain sharpness in your images

Traditional isn't boring

While our galleries are full of candid moments, we always include portraits with everyone looking, plus a modern twist. Once the traditional everyone-looking-at-the-camera image is snapped, we can go right into an image of you looking at your favorite person, while everyone else is still looking at the camera.

Pro tip: head swaps are a great skill to learn for the perfect traditional family portrait.

Get Snuggly

Sometimes cuddling up together and kissing is what puts smiles on everyone's faces.

Pro tip: when kissing kids, tell parents to kiss the ears, so little faces aren't covered. If someone isn't smiling, give their little thigh a squeeze for giggles!
