18 Creative Family Picture Poses



If you’re like us — and a lot of families this time of year — you’re planning for your annual family picture so you can get it done in time for your holiday cards.

But unless you’re one of the rare sort who can come up with a creative family picture idea every year (like my husband’s cousin Cathy and her husband Phil), you may need a little inspiration. How can you find a pose that doesn’t look like the same one you’ve done every year?

I’ve found some ideas for you (and me) in this great gallery full of ideas. Check out the pics and check out the photographers’ sites, too — and maybe you’ll be lucky and one of them will be in your town. As for us, we’ve got our pictures scheduled with our extended family next Saturday … wish us luck.

In the meantime, take a look at these creative poses … after the break.
