Coming in at 1,800 square feet, this photo studio has plenty of room for families of any size. The aesthetic is vintage-eclectic and not surprisingly, it’s just picture-perfect. Our favorite vignette in the studio is one with gold and brass vintage picture frames hanging above a velvet tufted couch. Overall, the space has 13-foot ceilings, textured backgrounds, and five different seating spaces. The hosts invite you to move props as you see fit, so make the space your own and take great family photos.

You’ve seen lofts with natural light, but you’ve never seen anything quite like this. The studio is a converted warehouse-style space with stunning 72-foot wall-to-wall industrial windows. Pair that with the high ceilings and rustic wood floors, and you’ve got a truly gorgeous photo studio space. There are seating options as well as the open space near those fabulous windows. For that ethereal glowing look, consider booking during golden hour!

7. Flex your imagination at a film production studio

Our next pick is a bit more niche. Toronto may be a gorgeous city, but what if your family photoshoot ideas actually call for a different backdrop? Perhaps you want a picture of the kids in Tokyo and the grown-ups in Rome, or maybe a family trip to the moon! You can do it all in this studio. This film and photo studio is fitted with a cyclorama green screen for seamless edges. If you have the editing skills or know someone who does, this could blow any other family photoshoots out of the water.

8. Live it up in a charming daylight loft studio

The stylish and airy design is ideal for calm family photoshoot ideas in Toronto.

Because of how special this space is it’s definitely one of our favorite family photoshoot ideas in Toronto.
