During the Covid-19 pandemic, many families were unable to see as much of each other as they wished, with visits to grandparents for example being widely curtailed. Sharing printed family photos became more valuable than ever. Spontaneous snaps of special moments can bring a lot of joy, but a more planned photoshoot will always be worth the additional effort.
Here, we'll share a technique for capturing striking generational portrait photography and preparing it for print, to make a unique and long-lasting piece of wall art or gift. By photographing each person individually and then compiling the portraits into a single image, you can create a stylish group photo which can be printed – brilliantly showcasing the similarities and differences between the faces in your family – and can even be extended in the future to add new generations, like an heirloom that grows with your family.
