Outdoor Family Portrait Tips

Introduction To Outdoor Family Portrait

An outdoor family portrait is a timeless way to capture memories and create stunning images that will last a lifetime. With the beauty of nature as your backdrop, you can capture the love and connection that makes your family unique. In this blog, we’ll share some tips for creating stunning outdoor family portraits that will help you capture memories you’ll treasure forever.

Choose the right time and location

The time of day you take your outdoor family portraits can make a big difference in the final results. The best time to take outdoor portraits is during the “golden hour,” which is the hour just after sunrise or just before sunset. During this time, the light is soft and warm, which can create a beautiful, glowing effect in your photos.

The location you choose is also critical. Look for a location that is scenic and and has lots of space for you to comfortably move around.

Light and location should be considered together. Unfortunately not all our favorite places get the right light at the right time. However, worry not! Limoo Photography has lots of excellent selected suggestions for you in the Bay Area.

One last thing, it’s usually best to book your outdoor family portrait on a weekday as there will be significantly fewer people strolling around in the background. You’ll get to enjoy a more private and intimate experience and avoid any photo-bombing!

Family Portrait Dress Code

What you wear can make a huge difference in the look and feel of your outdoor family portraits. Choose outfits that complement each other and fit the location you’ve chosen. If you’re taking photos on the beach, for example, you might want to wear light, flowy clothing. If you’re taking photos in the park, you might want to wear more muted colors. Avoid overly busy patterns and logos, as these can be distracting. Coordinated monochromatic or color-blocking outfits always look great.

Be spontaneous

While posed portraits are important, candid moments can often be the most memorable. Embrace fun and encourage your family to interact with each other, play games, or simply enjoy the scenery. These moments can often result in some of the most beautiful and authentic family portraits.
