Go Sledding

Sledding is a fun winter tradition for many American families. Whether you’re spending the winter at home or a getaway cabin, sledding is a great family activity. Turn your sledding activity into a winter wonderland photo session. Make sure you dress yourself and your children in warm clothes. For a winter family photo session, you can even layer your beanies with Santa hats. You can capture your baby’s reaction to their first snow. Take a sled down a small hill and capture a candid photo of your family fun. You may also capture snow angels in the ground or build your child’s first snowman.

Ride Bikes

Riding a bike is one of the many milestones in a child’s first decade. If it’s your child’s first time riding a bike, don’t forget to equip their bike with training wheels. You may also invite your child’s friends to make the experience more fun. If your child is an experienced cyclist, consider taking the family out on a fun bike ride. Try out new destinations or take them on an outdoor trail. Novice bikers can bike around a campground to avoid traffic.

Have a Family Picnic

Take your family out on an outdoor family picnic on a sunny afternoon. You can also allow your child to help prepare your meals and sandwiches. If you’re on a picnic, consider taking your pictures during the sunset or golden hour. The golden glow is ideal for taking nostalgic images. You can even go to a park and take pictures with your kids in the playground. If your child enjoys outdoor games, bring frisbees or a ball to make the activity more fun.

Fly Kites

For a low impact activity, teach your kids how to fly kites. This is a great family activity to do after riding bikes or having a picnic. Allow your child to choose a colorful kite that they’ll love. This is a great summer family photo session idea while you’re out on vacation. Teaching your kids how to fly kites is a great bonding experience for the family.
