It seems like a lifetime ago that I had just ONE little one, but looking back at these pictures of families in their beginnings takes me right back, and brings joy to my heart.  I started a series all about Family Picture Pose Ideas for Families of Varying Sizes, and today we’re looking at pose ideas with one.

  1. These are so cute. But I’ve always found it a little sad that we stop having pictures with each child individually as they grow. Obviously the poses have to change, lol, but the importance of them know how important they are individually to us as parents doesn’t. I’m not sure exactly how that would work as they get older (mine are just entering their teens) but I think it’s worth considering. 😊

      I agree! I’m trying to remember to pull each child out individually, and take one with mom, one with dad, and one with both–for their sake–later in life. It’s often forgotten, for sure.

  2. These are absolutely adorable! I wish I would have seen this about a month ago. We just took family pictures a couple of weeks ago and these are stinking cute ideas. Do you have any tips about taking photos with YOUNG (babies-3yrs) kids? My 6 month old didn’t care to do anything but play with the grass and dirt and my little girl didn’t want to smile because we asked her to. Bribes for her and noise makers for my son didn’t help. Luckily our photos turned out but it was probably a little more stressful then it should have been. What are your suggestions?

  3. This is a GREAT series! I am always looking for different poses. I don’t have a business (but I did take your Say No to Auto class), but I take pictures for friends sometimes and posing is my biggest challenge. I can’t wait for the rest of the posts too! Thanks! You are fantastic!

  4. Hi! These are great! Where did you take the one with the railroad tracks?
