One moment they’re spoon feeding you strained peas, the next they’re assembling Ikea furniture in your college dorm rooms. The time goes by quickly. As a family it’s important to capture the special moments siblings share. Of course, you’ll always be siblings, but eventually you become parents, aunts/uncles, etc. Adults are, in essence.
When this adulthood hits, it’s always great to be able to look back and smile, cringe, or laugh. These family photo ideas will help you capture the best sibling portraits.
Make a serious portrait of your sibling. Parents deserve a good picture.
Saying “cheese” is a silly cue that hopefully elicits smiles from photo subjects. People like to take funny photos to capture a shot. It is possible to relive that feeling every time they see it. Sibling photo poses are important when considering family photo ideas. Don’t wear cargo shorts or tank tops to church services and semi-formal events. Instead, dress in appropriate attire. Siblings could be seated, standing, or sitting together in traditional settings, such as at the fireplace, bookcase, or sofa. Great locations are also available in backyards and parks. You want serious faces but smiley faces. For another session, leave the rabbit ears behind.

If you’d like to take the “TBT” or “Throw Back Thursday” trend to the next level, recreate these family photo ideas. You’re most likely stocked with images from way back then. What about the time you got your first bikes? What about when you built that couch cushion fort in your living room? Have fun and create sibling pictures. While your clothes may be slightly different, you should still try to recreate the look from your childhood wardrobe. If possible, return to the original scene. Find any props that were in the original shot. If the location or props aren’t available, focus on the siblings and matching their expressions to minimize what’s missing from the original. Have fun. Chances are, you’ll find yourself recreating more of these family portrait ideas.
Remake a photo from your parents’ childhood
Similar to recreating sibling picture poses from the past, attempting the same with photos from your parents’ childhood can be even more rewarding. These family photo ideas are always a source of laughter and lightheartedness from everyone involved. Then, find a fun photo of your mom or dad to start the family portrait replication. But, this exercise is often more informative if done properly. Find a photo of your parents as they were when you were their age. By recreating this scene as closely as possible, you’ll likely see the genetic similarities between parents and their children. It’s sibling portrait magic.
Create a family portrait of your pet-siblings
“Hey hoomans! Don’t furrrget to include me.” This might be the easiest sibling portrait to pull off. The family pets go from puppy to hound to kitten to cat quickly. Sibling photo sessions with pets every other week are a fad. You should wear the same outfit each time so that your furry friend’s rapid growth is the main focus. Consider including the parents in your family portrait. You can find more ideas for family group portraits here.
