22 Photo Ideas for Families at Home

A good photo last a lifetime. As such, I spend lots of time scouring Pinterest and Instagram for amazing photo opportunities. Being stuck at home for the moment limits the photos taken at parts, on vacations, at beaches, poolside, etc. Yet, life is still taking place.

Since my current purpose is tied to documenting moments and sharing lessons learned along the way, here are 25 photos you can create to document your own moments without leaving your home (although some of them do take place in your yard).

1. Porch photo

Put up a cute wreath and door mat. Maybe even throw in some extra porch decor and snap away.

Porch photos are so easy to take. Decorate your porch and snap. #familyphotos #familyphotoshoot #familyphotoideas #mothersonphotos #familyphotosession

2. Photo with kisses

I love kisses. Kisses on the forehead are great and so are kisses on the cheek. Kisses make people feel warm and loved.

Blow some kisses for your family photo.   #familyphotos #familyphotoshoot #familyphotoideas #motherdaughterphotos #familyphotosession
While this photo is not at home, I have recreated this photo at home against an accent wall. #familyphotos #familyphotoideas #familyphotoshoot #kissesphotos #pictureswithkisses

3. Family selfie

Unfortunately, we do not have personal photographer at our disposal to get all the family photos so selfies have to do sometimes. Family selfies, though, can be so fun. Can you get everyone in the photo at once? Is everyone looking at the camera? What will the final photo look like? Family selfies create the best memories.

A family selfie is always a good idea.  #familyphotos #familyphotoideas #familyphotoshoot #familyselfie #iphonephotos

4. Chalk Art Photo

Chalk art can transform a photo. There are limitless colors and possibilities.

Chalk art is an easy way to take family photos at home. #familyphotos #familyphotoideas #familyphotoshoot #photosathome #chalkartphotos

5. Zoo Animal Photo

Google has the ability to bring virtual animals right to your home. Google the name of the animal. Click the “view in 3D” option, and watch the animal appear before you.

Use Google 3D to take a family photo with a zoo animal inside of your home. #familyphotoideas #familyphotos #zooanimalsphoto #kissesphoto #photosathome #kidsphotos

6. Letterboard photo

Funny sayings, cute sayings, or simple facts can all be communicated via letter boards. Stamp out moments in time by spelling out what makes right now so special.

Letterboards add a stamp to what is happening right now in family photos. #familyphotoideas #familyphotos #zooanimalsphoto #letterboardsphoto #photosathome #kidsphotos

7. Flowers Photo

Nature always adds just what a family photo needs.

Flowers always make a family photo better. #familyphotoideas #familyphotos #motherdaughterphoto #photosathome #kissesphoto #flowerphotography

8. Hugs Photo

Because who does not love hugs to go with all those kisses?

Who does not love a photo with hugs in it?  #familyphotoideas #familyphotos #brothersphoto #costumesphoto #hugsphoto#photosathome #kidsphotos

9. Hearts photo

Hearts have made a comeback as a result of the recent pandemic. You can use hearts as a background, or you can use your hands to make the heart symbol.

Hearts show love within family photo. #familyphotoideas #familyphotos #porchphotoideas #heartsphoto #photosathome #kidsphotos

10. Off guard photo

There is power in catching yourself and your family in photos in their natural environment doing what they normally do.

Off guard photos catch families doing what they normally do. #familyphotoideas #familyphotos #girlsphotos #offguardphotos #photosathome #kidsphotos

11. Couch photo

Set up the whole family, the kids, or just you two as a couple on the couch and snap away.

Couch photos can capture couples, just the kids, or the whole family. #familyphotoideas #familyphotos #familyphotoshoot #couchphotos#photosathome #couplesphoto

12. Message photo

Have the family hold signs that create a message. Or write words/letters on hands or feet.

Message photos are the best with families. #familyphotos #familyphotoideas #messagephotos #kidsphotos #kidsphotoideas
Use papers to send the message to the world as a family. #familyphotos #familyphotoideas #messagephotos #familyphotoshoot #kidsphotoideas

16. Laughing photo

Laughter is the best medicine. When families laugh together, even when it is forced, it creates tons of family fun. Laughing photos make awesome family photos and memories.

Laughter is great medicine for family photos. #familyphotos #familyphotoideas #laughingphotos #familyphotoshoot #kidsphotoideas

17. Pick a prop photo

Pick a prop from around the house, and add it to your photos. Seasonal theme props are the best – Christmas decor, pumpkins, spring decor, etc.

Add a prop to your family photos. #familyphotos #familyphotoideas #propsforphotos #familyphotoshoot #kidsphotoideas

18. Sleeping photo

Something about the peacefulness of sleep is so calming.

Pajamas photos and sleeping photos are both wins.   #familyphotos #familyphotoideas #sleepingphotos #familyphotoshoot #kidsphotoideas

19. Funny faces photo

Funny faces never get old. Just like the laughing photo, funny photos leave you feeling great!

Funny Faces make a great family photo idea.   #familyphotos #familyphotoideas #funnyfacesphoto #familyphotoshoot #kidsphotoideas

20. Stairs photo

Stairs are so good for photos. If you do not have stairs inside your house, you can always take pictures on the stairs leading up to your house or porch.

Stair photos.   #familyphotos #familyphotoideas #stairphotos #familyphotoshoot #kidsphotoideas

21. Filtered photo

Snapchat, Facebook, and Instagram all have filter capabilities where you can add animal faces or headbands to photos for some extra family photo fun.

Filters make for a fun family photo idea. #familyphotos #familyphotoideas #filteredphotos #familyphotoshoot #kidsphotoideas

22. Matching clothing photo

You cannot go wrong with matching outfits for family photos.   #familyphotos #familyphotoideas #mommyandmephotos #matchingoutfitsphotos #familyphotoshoot #kidsphotoideas

I love a mommy and me photo session with my daughter, but I have also done matching family pajamas and color themes for family photos (example blue jeans and white shirts).

Matching pajamas or color themed outfits make great family photos. #familyphotos #familyphotoideas #familyphotoshoot #matchingpajamasphoto #themefamilyphotos
