5 Fun Family Photography Ideas that Reflect Personality

You’re ready to get family pictures taken but this time you crave something different. You want photos that convey your family’s love for one another, but also have a unique element or artistic twist. You’re willing to go beyond the traditional for something truly different.


To make your next family photos one-of-a-kind, consider these five great ideas:


Embrace the Essence of You

While your professional JCPenney Portraits photographer will capture the smiles you came in for, they will also focus on the candid moments during your session. Whether it is the giggle between frames or pout of your little one, your photographer will tell your family’s unique story.

Photo Props

JCPenney Portraits has many unique props available at each studio, so you might find something to jazz up your family pictures. You’re also always welcome to bring your own props to reflect your family’s unique personality. For example, if you’re a hockey crew, bring a few sticks and wear your jerseys. Large letters can be amazing additions, too, whether you spell out a word or just use the first letter of your last name.


Coordinating Outfits

What you wear can certainly add a unique element to the photograph and set it apart from the rest. How about everyone in suspenders looking spiffy? Maybe you all wear fedoras? Snuggle up in the same scarves? Perhaps you can each wear different outfits but everyone coordinates a color? The options are endless. Consider brainstorming with your family to come up with ideas.

Enjoy the Moment

Your photographer is here and ready to build a relationship with your family to capture the best images possible. They will have all sorts of tricks up their sleeve to bring out your natural smiles. After your family poses have been captured, your photographer will work with your children to showcase their personality. All you have to do is relax and let your photographer’s creativity come to life.



If you want a unique photograph that captures the love of your entire family, don’t forget about furry family members. Call your local JCPenney Portraits studio to inquire about pet photography options. Many studios open specific times for pets and you can get a fun photograph of everyone in your household, even good old Fido. Having pets in the photo can make for some amazing candid shots!


Family photos are like a time capsule. In one click, you forever capture the love you all have at exactly that moment in time. With these unique ideas for family photographs, you’re sure to get images you’ll cherish for a lifetime. Schedule your next family photo session today.
