Family Posing Guide

So you have the beautiful family. You have scouted the perfect location and the best time of day. Now it is time for the session. So how do you pose a family in a variety of fun and natural ways to be able to fill a full gallery, get a variety of shots and angles, and present your clients with the best possible portraits?

Family Posing Guide Bree Hulme EducationPosing!

Learning a variety of poses, learning how to get your clients in a natural, comfortable position to then interact with each other naturally is crucial to running a successful family photography business. And it is one of the harder aspects to learn.

Family Posing Guide Bree Hulme Education

Over almost 10 years in business, and photographing 100s of families, I have 6 favourite go-to-poses which I use in nearly every session. My sessions are fun and natural, with not a lot of "Smile at the camera". But I do still pose my families so that I can capture them at their best. Then once they are posed I set up little games, topics to discuss (& laugh about) and ways for them to interact so that I can capture their natural smiles, their connection and joy, their beautiful family at their best.

These poses are all outlined in my family posing guide which is free to download through my shop.

Why Baby Portraits are Gorgeous at Every Age

Before the years of Covid-19 Lockdowns here in Sydney, I predominately photographed babies who were under 2 weeks of age. This is the newborn photographers "magic age" as newborns at this age are at their most sleepy, they're most curly, and they're most tiny.

But after a 4 month lockdown all the newborn babies I had scheduled in whilst we were in lockdown and unable to work, grew quite a lot! In the months after reopening and being able to shoot again, I photographed babies aged from 10 days to 4 months old, and every single session was beautiful, precious and so worth capturing. I loved what every baby, every family brought into my studio, and I loved capturing their unique and precious family memories.
