Outdoor family photo ideas, are not just for the traditional summer vacation photos anymore. Get your family together any time for a refreshing addition to what used to be the awkward family photos book. Think about themes, events and activities too as you plan for more outdoor family photo ideas.

Are you highlighting an event? Perhaps the next big family get together is the perfect time to put your outdoor family photo ideas to the test. When planning your next outdoor barbecue, take time to get lawn decorations like hay bales or sunflowers you have been growing and add them to the scene. Is there a snow day causing everyone to stay home? Bundle up everyone and build your snowman family to be photographed with. It could result in funny awkward family pictures, but most likely it will be the winter to remember with your loved ones. Are the fall leaves falling? What could be better than outdoor family photo ideas that also include everyone pitching in to rake up the leaves scattered across the yard?

Save the embarrassing family photos for your funny holiday pictures, and make it an annual challenge to come up with the best outdoor family photo ideas. Yes, the kids will always think they are embarrassing family photos, but document your children through the years with new outdoor family photo ideas. Perhaps, each year you and your family could visit some treasured local landmark. You will cherish being able to compare how much everyone has changed over time, and it may help with family picture outfit ideas for years to come as our tastes change.

Does your family share a particular love for biking, hiking, or other outdoor activities? Keep documenting participation and creating new outdoor family photo ideas centered on your shared interests. As the younger kids learn to ride bikes, include your whole family on their bikes. If you all enjoy hiking to the hilltops or mountaintops, make sure you document that as part of your family photo rituals.

Sometimes, we forget that the less posed and more slice of life types of family portraits can really highlight the heart of what we enjoy most as family. And that shows how your family loves, plays, and interacts together better than you might guess!
