There are a lot of variables you have to take into account when having a family portrait done. First and foremost, you have to find a dependable, talented photographer in your area and in your price range. Then you have to make an appointment and assemble your family, which is easier said then done if you have a large group and/or out-of-town family members. Once all the logistics are squared away, and it’s time to worry about the actual picture, there are many options you must sift through. Will this be shot outdoor or indoor? Location or studio? Backdrop, green screen, or natural setting? 


Here’s one last major question you and your family need to ask: what are we wearing?


The Scenario


Let’s say you’re shooting a family photo with an extended family. Your parents, your siblings, and their spouses and kids. That group will add up in a hurry. When you’re squeezing all those people into the shot, it wouldn’t hurt to label them. Yes, label them. This is especially true if you have a big family. That way, anyone can glance at the picture and immediately know who is who and who is with who. Each distinct smaller family subset (i.e. you and your kids, your brother and his kids, etc.) can create their own custom t-shirt design with WhoopTee and wear it in the picture. Family one is in green, family two is in blue, and so on. 


Plus, you’re going to be saving your decedents a lot of awkwardness. Some day, when your kids pull out their copy of your family photo from way back in 2017, and they say to their grandkids “do you know who that is”, they can at least narrow the field down by family. In all seriousness though, creating a custom t-shirt online is a fun activity for the entire family. If you're bringing in family from out of town, you can make creating the t-shirt, the photo, all of it into a fun family get-together. That way your t-shirts can double as family reunion t-shirts


All you have to do is gather the family around the computer, open up, and select a custom t-shirt option. Then you can design your family t-shirts in our designer tool. With WhoopTee, you even get free shipping to the lower 48 states. Find your photographer, find your location, and gather your family, but before the shutter closes, grab your custom family t-shirts from WhoopTee.
