Family Photo ?

My dd just turned 1 and I would like to have a family photo taken. The thing is I know I will not be able to get my dh dressed up. Has anyone done a simple pose that looked nice? And any back ground ideas?

  • I think outdoor pictures turn out the best! I love the nice natural backgrounds! We wore black shirts and dark jeans because we are very simple people. This is not a professional picture. We are trying to save money so we had a friend take it. It hasn't been edited yet, but it works. Good luck.

  • We used to do one every year. One of my favorites was on the beach at sunset, each of us wearing jeans and white t-shirts .

  • I never like the forced, dressed up formal pictures. Take one in shorts in the back yard. As long as everyone is smiling, it will be cute!

  • I think casual photos are so much more natural looking than dressy ones anyway. Just jeans & matching colored shirts, or just any clothes that are kind of matching in color is really nice. I usually pick a color pallet of 3 colors (one year it was burgundy, tan & cream) & we all dress in one or more of those colors. Makes a really nice photo.

  • We do jeans and tshirts and take photos outside - my parents live on a lake so we did that one year, there's a beautiful gazebo in my neighborhood we used one year. My SIL is a professional photographer so we have some great pics!
