Caricatures: The Fun Family Portrait

Filed under: family caricatures — Tags: , , , — Charlie Anson @ 2:48 pm

Family portraits are a long honoured tradition that many individuals can expect to take part in from their infancy all the way through their elder years when they have a family of their own. Following this trend, it’s not hard to imagine that after a while, these portraits can begin to look similar – the same format, the same poses, and the same grins plastered across everyone’s faces while they wait for the obligatory picture to be taken. Why not try something new, something fun for everyone that will be sure to stand out from every other portrait you’ve ever done: a caricature portrait.

These personalised caricature portraits provide a unique and humorous approach to the staid portrait format, and are great for group caricatures, as well as individual pictures. The design and artistry relies on a provided photo of the individuals involved, which makes a great surprise for families who are spread out and have limited time to get together for group photos. With this approach, there are two ways you can go about having a family caricature done. The first is to take a group photo, or use an existing photo for everyone involved and have it sent to the artist, the second is a slightly different tactic, using individual photos of everyone in the family and asking the artist to incorporate these into a stylised family caricature.

However you decide to do it, group caricatures can offer a unique and wonderful alternative to the traditional family portrait.
