We’ve all seen the standard family photo. The kids are well-behaved, the parents look polished, and the dog shines beneath the glow of a camera flash. But, are these the moments you want to display in your digital frame? Here are 6 family activities that can produce a memorable family photo op for your digital frame display.
- Hike at Dawn
We admit, the entire house may not be up for a hike at dawn, but it’s worth it. Fill up the coffee container, wear your best hiking clothes, and head to the park or nearby mountain range. Use the light from the morning sun to capture the perfect shot during your travels.
- Outdoor Games
Gather the family for a friendly game outside. Hit the soccer green, go up to bat on the baseball field, or suit up for flag football. You can assemble at the pitcher’s mound, or celebrate a victory in the end-zone. Either way, you’ll be ready for a fun-filled photo.
- A Family 5K
If your family likes to run, lace up for a photo you’ll want to go straight into your digital frame. Take pictures of your family at the starting line, or capture the victory you share when you cross the finish. Have any medals? Some props can make for an even better shot.
- Snow Day
Next time snow falls, be sure to grab the camera! You and your family can build a snowman together, taste the snowflakes, or hit the slopes for some snow day memories. Snow can be an elegant backdrop for your family photos. Whether your family plays outside the front door, skates on the local pond, or thrashes downhill on their sleds, be sure to capture every moment. Upload your favorite pictures to the cloud, so you can share your snow-filled shots with the ones you love.
- Kitchen Fun
Of all the rooms in your home, the kitchen reigns supreme when it comes to bringing family together. It is a place where family members gather, eat, do homework, play games, and pass on priceless culinary traditions. The kitchen is an ideal family activity photo op. Bring the family together to make Nana’s cookie recipe, trash the kitchen in style, or sit around the dining table for a family board game. You’re bound to make memories you can treasure for ages.
- Museum Moments
Wonderment makes for awe-inspiring photos. Take the family to a museum or art gallery. Snap photos near large creatures, and colorful creations. While your loved ones admire fascinating exhibits, eat beside wooly mammoths, or walk like the mummies, have your camera in-hand to capture every fun and quirky pose.
