10 Ideas for Dad and Child Poses

Here’s a little bit of inspiration for your next family session – featuring the dads!  I like to get a variety of poses, expressions, actions.

I will get them to look at the camera, but then have ones when they are touch foreheads, looking at each other, laughing.  I find that this part of the session can get playful.

Have dad toss them in the air (age dependent!) or go for a piggyback ride can help get great natural expressions!
