Family Photography by Akihiro Furuta

We've been thinking about making a family portrait for the holidays and while there's nothing wrong with the traditional studio portraits at places like JC Penney and Target, we'd like to do something a bit different. Our gears were turning again this morning when we spotted the family photography of Akihiro Futura on Swiss Miss's blog.

Okay, maybe you don't want to think this far out of the box or you don't think your photography skills are adequate, but photos like these are inspiring us to try to be more playful and spontaneous in the pictures we take.
