Virtual families have been the hallmark of the Sims franchises.
I mean, sure, solo Sim households do exist. Many players can fly solo for the entirety of the game. That’s totally understandable.
However, a large portion of Sims 4 players prefer a more family-oriented game.
Here are a few packs that you can check out if you want to fill up your family albums.

35. Family Photo Pose Pack for Sims 4 by Temporary Phenomenons
I was writing the description for this pack when I realised that each pose shows how the Goth family has changed over time.
First, it’s just the young couple, then they get pregnant, then Cassandra is born, then Cassandra and Alexander are born, and then the whole family as they get older.
SO ADORABLE! And it’s a great way to show how the family of your sim changes over time.
These would look great in a scrapbook or hung on a wall as a collection.
34. Sims 4 Family Christmas Pose Pack by FlowerSimsPoses
No matter how many holidays your sims have celebrated, the love and happiness on their faces that morning will always be there.
Each of the 10 holidays poses in this pack is a little bit different.
Download the Christmas decoration accessory for toddlers and the Christmas box for everything to work right.
33. Sims 4 Family Gallery Pose by sakuraleon
If you’re looking for a picture of a family with pets to put in a gallery, here it is!
How could you not want to be a part of a family that looks this good?
With the Pawtastic gallery pose, your family of six people and two pets will look irresistible.
32. Sims 4 Family Posepack by Mel Bennett
These are great for taking screenshots of games while out with the kids or just at home.
There are a total of 6 poses.
I feel like these poses could be in a scrapbook: “Here you are and your brother when you were babies in the crib.”
31. Sims 4 Sibling Pose Pack by simmerberlin
I think my favourite thing about this pose pack is how playful it is and how much fun the hands are. It’s just a different thing!
All of these are good poses for taking screenshots in-game with siblings.
30. Sims 4 Family Poses with Twins by simsulani
So many things could be done with this pack.
I can imagine sisters with kids about the same age or a gay couple with twins.
Even though your sims don’t have to use these poses when they’re at the beach, it does make them look better.
There are 9 different family poses, some of which only have one parent and one child.
29. Sims 4 Family Poses with Pets by simmerberlin
What would pictures of the family be without the pets?
You can get close to your furry friends in 9 different ways.
Always double-check the download links to make sure you have everything you need for the photos.
28. Sims 4 Family Vacation Poses by whimsyalien
Vacations can be pretty pricey, so you’ll want to take as many pictures as you can to remember every moment.
These are great for taking pictures of scenery in-game. There are 4 options that give you a wide range of looks and feelings.
27. Family Group Poses for Sims 4 by Atashi77
I think we can all agree that it’s important to have the whole family in a picture, but can we talk about how cute the poses are just between siblings?
I also like that a lot of these poses have people sitting down, which isn’t something we see in big group poses very often.
This pack is set up for a family of five, with two adults, one child, and two young children.
26. Sims 4 Father Daughter Poses by Katverse
Raising a child can be a lot of work, but the little moments along the way make it all worth it.
These sweet moments a father and daughter share is worth a lot.
25. Sims 4 Mom and Toddler Poses by ratboysims
I don’t know what else will make you happy if these poses don’t.
The relationship between a mother and her child is one of the sweetest and most honest there is.
I know that the love I get from my two-year-old son is like nothing else.
24. Family Picnic Poses for Sims 4 by Lustrousims x Lilalmondsims
Not all family pictures have to be so planned out.
These in-game poses make it look like the family just went on a picnic and someone took a picture of them having fun.
There are 8 poses between the two parts of this work.
23. Sims 4 Family Time Pose Pack by StarrySimsie x SimSulani
Most of the time, the unplanned, real moments in photos are better than the ones that were set up.
The faces are great, and they give the poses a lot of life.
There are 10 poses for a family of four in this candid pose pack.
22. Sims 4 Family Portrait Pose by rebouks
When you have 5 kids, it can be hard to get them to all look at the camera and smile at the same time.
This is the picture that seems like a mistake at the time but ends up being the favourite and the one that stays on the wall.
21. Pose Request #98 by Sciophobis
A family of three should have an extremely cute photoshoot. This is why I started this compilation of Sims 4 family photos with this one.
This pack shows a mother and her children posing together. The poses reflect the affection between the family members.
This photoshoot can be done in your backyard to get the best results.
20. Mommy is awesome! Bored Sims Pose Pack-The Sims 4
Next, we have the adorable family pose featuring the father, mother, toddler, and newborn.
This is all about showing the excitement they have for their new baby.
However, the focus is on the toddler who just realizes how amazing his mommy is.
19. Family is Everything #1 Pose pack
This is my favourite family pose pack for Sims 4.
This pack features 8 different poses that can be used by all age members of the family.
Some poses can only be used with 3 Sims, while others require 4 Sims.
They look real and are fun, regardless!
18. Mothermas Baby Pose Pack by Frxsk0sims
What do modern moms do well?
Every day, they take amazing selfies with their children!
These four poses look amazing together! This is so cute!
17. Aquariustrait presents Best Buddies Pack – The Sims 4
Every parent should be a friend to their children.
This family pose pack is perfect for Sim if he or she strives to be a friend to their child.
The pack includes 3 different poses that show dads, daughters, mothers, and sons being best friends.
16. Family Photoshoot with The Sims 4
This pack contains the largest family poses for Sims 4.
There are tons of poses to choose from, and all look stylish and distinguished.
These poses are perfect for a modern mom, dad and child.
15. Bored Sims #1 Pose Pack: Family is Everything
Number Of Poses: 8.
This Family is All pack, which ends this list with a set of happy poses, is probably the most balanced.
There are many poses for adults and children, teens and adults alike, as well as just teens and just adults.
These are mostly posed poses, but I love the candid ones.
Particularly the sixth, where the toddler Sim is being cradled and the child Sim is piggybacking.
14. Family Matters by talent type
Number Of Poses: 3.
You may be a little surprised to see that these poses do not include a lot of toddlers or children.
The first preview photo and the one that appears in the main preview area are basically for teens or young adults.
According to the Sims creator, most of his Sim family members are teens or older. These poses were created to fit their setup.
This pose pack might not work if your Sim family is full of small Sims.
This pack is recommended for adults and teens who live in the same house.
It’s great for large families that are affectionate. He doesn’t care about personal bubbles.
13. Once Upon a Time, by Simmerberlin
Number Of Poses: 9
These adorable pose packs by Simmerberlin are truly a disgrace to the community.
Another set of custom poses featuring quiet moments in family life is here.
Parents reading to their children at night is a great idea. This is a unique concept in terms of family-oriented poses and has been done almost flawlessly.
The expressions are soft and loving, the features are subtle, but still very emotional, and the positions are just too cute.
12. Say Cheese at simmerberlin
Number Of Poses: 6
Although this pack is not the largest, it has lots of large group photos.
Five of the six options have more than six Sims. One pose requires a staggering 12 Sims to perform.
This pose is perfect for Sims and extended families if you have a mod that allows more than eight Sims to live in one household.
11. Three of Us by Simmerberlin
Number Of Poses: 9
While lilalmondsim’s A Family of Four sets had a soft, fuzzy, affectionate vibe to them, simmerberlin’s Three of Us poses pack is a bit more romantic and possessive.
Don’t be afraid, just like the possessive type.
This set is described by the creator as “A little family with that little person who brightens your day.”
That was so sweet and true.
These poses are a perfect example of “fairly new parents who are so thrilled over their little nugget,” and they work. It’s adorable and easy to photograph.
Also, the facial expressions are of a very high standard.
The female model is happy and content. The male model seems enamoured and a bit haughty, but it’s still the good type of haughty and the toddler model looks adorable.
10. “A Family of Four” by Lilalmondsim
Number Of Poses: 3.
Get ready to hear another overexcited description about a custom pose kit, because this is what I want to talk about.
A Family of Four Set poses by lilalmondsim have some of my favourite custom expressions. Period.
They made my Sims feel all kinds of happy and soft.
These custom poses, which emphasize the facial features in a way that enhances the emotions without making the models appear cartoonish or caricature-like, are a great example of how to make your face look more realistic. They are so affectionate and fond.
9. Family Portrait #4 Poses By Atashi77
Number of Poses: 5.
Atashi77’s Family Portrait #4 pose set has some of our favourite and most adorable poses.
Simple poses and a simple concept allow for easy and quick posing (and snapping) of images.
It’s very simple.
8. Cement Family Posepack: “Happy Household”
Number Of Poses: 10.
The Happy Family pack from Cement has the perfect set of poses to portray a family of four that is adorable and affectionate.
It’s hard to imagine any other set that could execute the same concept as this one.
These poses can be playfully affectionate, quite fond, or hopelessly loving.
One for siblings, one for parents, and two for a mother and her little toddler.
They are also beautifully set up.
There are no awkward limbs or floating hands. You can also make perfect facial expressions.
There are many emotions to choose from, but there are no awkward puppet mouths or bug eyes.
7. Chaleara’s “Family Portrait” Posepack
Number Of Poses: 4.
These poses are not “candid,” but they seem a bit too casual and careless to be called “posed.”
A combination of both.
as if a family who planned an outdoor photoshoot decided to keep it casual. This is the feeling I get when I see the poses. All the models look so relaxed and happy as they smile at me.
These poses are variations on family photo poses, except for the second. There’s a little familiarity.
6. Sciophobis celebrates our Celebration Set
Okay, so. Custom poses that require me to download more than a few props or accessories are not my favourite.
It can be a bit tedious when you are trying multiple poses. Sometimes, it can even get tiresome to have to use CAS to achieve the desired effect.
Sciophobis’ Our Celebration Pack almost made it to this list.
These are some of my favourites, the most adorable Christmas poses that I have ever seen.
These are for a picture-perfect, family celebrating a classic storybook holiday. The children have camped underneath a large ole’ pine tree, which has sparklers, toys, and toddlers.
These poses are very versatile in masculine and feminine Sims and look just like candid shots that one would take on camera (assuming they had sharp eyes and were trigger-happy).
5. Sofi Sparks presents the “Legacy” Pose Pack
Number Of Poses: 4.
This Legacy pose pack by Sofi Sparks offers a great mix of options to suit different settings and age groups.
The first pose is for adults or young adults who have one child. The second and third poses are suitable for two or more parents with three children. The fourth pose is for toddlers.
The first portrait is a formal family portrait, which reminds me of the Mac Allister poses packed by helgatisha (although slightly less intimidating).
The second shot is more casual but still posed. The third and fourth photos look more like candid photos and are cute.
4. Family’s Poses Mac Allister, by helgatisha
Number Of Poses: 1
It’s the family pose that is completely untouchable, and everyone knows it.
It’s unclear if this is just a preview photo, or if the Sims in the photo seem to be looking down. But that’s what I sensed from the photo.
A family with the connections and resources to stay ahead of everyone else.
The creator deserves a lot of credit. This is a high-quality pose, straightforward and easy to do.
8 teleporters are stacked one on top of another in the middle section of the sofa. bam. Everything just falls into place.
3. Family Poses #2 by simsgami
Number Of Poses: 5.
Do you want custom poses that exude familial affection and casual love? It doesn’t get any chillier than the Simsgami Family Poses #2 poses pack.
This set includes five poses. They are both candid and posed.
My favourite pose is one where the baby or toddler lies awake and the parents lie down on the couch. It’s my personal favourite.
But curled-up-and-cuddling-the-toddler is a close second.
You will need to have a cat or a dog for one of these poses.
You can have the cat, but the toddler will be tremulous about its weight and rely on the dog.
If you are unable to get a dog into the room, maybe you could take the toddler out so it doesn’t look off.
2. Bonfire Night by Lilialmondsim
Number Of Poses: 3.
I swear, this custom pose pack can transform the grumpiest cats into the most adorable kittens.
It’s adorable, sweet, and well-made. You can feel its warmth through the screen. I was able to, even though I didn’t place my Sims next to a fire.
(I placed them on a couch in the middle of the living room to see how they would look. My point is still valid!)
These poses can accommodate more than two adults, two kids, and a toddler. You can turn it into an extended family gathering if you so desire.
1. KatVerseCC Family Portrait Pose
Number Of Poses: 1
Let’s begin with something simple.
This custom pose is great for quick portraits of Sims family members.
It is simple to set up and very straightforward. One teen, two adults, two children, and a toddler. This is a fairly standard set of poses, but it’s not impossible to make beautiful basic poses.
It’s ideal for a happy, positive family who wants to have a great time outdoors or indoors.
It is also clear that the creator used height modifiers to make the age gaps a bit more apparent. The physical changes are subtle too.
Officer, no squashing or stretching is going on here. Keep going.
