6. Church photoshoot
Even if you’re not particularly religious, churches make great settings for photoshoots. The stained glass windows, wood pews, vaulted ceilings – they all come together to make quite an impressive visual. Understated yet dignified, a church is great for those looking to shoot a classic family portrait. Looking for church space in Boston? Look no further than this renovated and for rent historic church.
7. Leave it to the fish
A lovely activity that also provides a great setting for your daddy daughter photo ideas is a pond where you can feed the fish. Feeding fish is a calming activity, and is sure to bring out the best in both of you while you quietly, or in hushed tones, break off pieces of bread for the minnows. If you’re in San Diego and looking for a private and calming koi pond, you’ll find what you’re looking for in this backyard oasis.

Is it sometimes unclear which of you two is actually the one in charge? Sometimes family roles are fluid, and this shoot is for the daughters out there who take command. Stick dad in a crib and feed him applesauce with a spoon. This humorous shoot is sure to delight friends and family.

9. Family band
Are daddy and daughter musically inclined? Maybe a great way to show off both of your talents is by hosting a photoshoot with music as its theme. Grab your instruments of choice and rock out together while the camera snaps some cool pics of you two having fun. In Austin? Check out this musician’s haven that’s fully stocked with every instrument you can think of.
10. Flexing for the camera
This is another of our daddy daughter photo ideas that revolves around a shared activity – in this case, an athletic activity. If the two of you share a proclivity for sport, why not share that athletic enthusiasm with a photoshoot? Grab your sporting gear, head to the court, field, rink, or gym of your preference and snap some pics. Rock climbing your thing? If you’re in Cleveland, you should definitely take a hike to this indoor rock wall climbing gym.
11. Like royalty
While you two may not be actually royalty, what’s to stop you from pretending you are for your daddy daughter shoot? Grab a crown, a tiara, a couple of thrones, and maybe a scepter, and you’ll be on your way to a memorable shoot. For the daddy/daughter pair in Dallas, this set of red velvet thrones may tickle your fancy.
12. Pink perfection
Maybe daddy doesn’t like to play by gender norms, or is open to anything, even if it isn’t his comfort zone. For this shoot, we’re suggesting you go pretty in pink. While tacky to some, we think this shoot is absolutely fab and is a great way to get dad to loosen up. To give you an example, check out this pink perfection in glamorous downtown Atlanta.
13. The world is an oyster
The last of our daddy daughter photo ideas, this one takes you and your theme wherever you want it. Yep, that’s right, we’re suggesting a green screen! The beauty of a greenscreen is it doesn’t hold you to a specific theme. This shoot choice also lets you “host” your shoot in otherwise impossible locations, like the moon or in the Mariana Trench.
