Poses for family portrait?
The family is a couple in their early 30's with a 3yr old boy.
Its just being done in my house, but I will have a large black backdrop set up. Props wise, I've got a couple of white barstools, some little childrens chairs, & an old coffe table that can be covered in material (matching the backdrop) & used as a seat. And the floor of course!
I've noticed that many family portraits have the people posed in a triangular formation, is that the norm? Or is it okay to stray away from that? Also, my backdrop is black so I have requested that the boy be dressed in something bright, should I ask the parents to wear similar colors?
If you could provide some links to examples, that'd be great.
