I am Michelle Rasmussen, Tucson Portrait Photographer, owner at Wondertime Photography, and I would like to share with you two important things today about family portraits. Whether you are having your portraits taken or you are taking a family's portrait, these are two important things to know which will improve your photo.
I am going to show you 5 photographs that all have these 2 important factors in common that make them stand out from other family photos that do not have them:
1. All the families are posed so that their heads make a triangle if you were to "connect the heads as dots", except one, and that photo has the family making motion (walking), so it's ok.
2. All the families are pretty much following the rule of dressing as if they are one person and there is no more than one pattern and the rest of the outfits are picked from those colors.
The more people you start to add to the session, the harder it can be, but it's totally worth it to take the time and effort to do this as your photos will look so much better if the subjects are coordinated nicely with one another and your photographer takes the next step to pose them so that you get eye pleasing "connect-the-dot-triangles" with your subjects heads.
I hope you find this article helpful, if you do, let me know by leaving a comment down below. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below also. Thanks! ~Michelle
