As a SoCal photographer, I take a lot of beach family photos. Whether it’s in Laguna Beach or anywhere else in Orange County, I know all the best spots. There is so much to love about these sessions on the sand, and it’s not just how great all of my clients are! Here are 3 of my favorite things about family photo sessions on the beach:
Family photos at the beach give you so much room to play with your littles! The best photos come from you loving on each other and having fun. Being outside allows you to be carefree and honest, which makes for the best photos. Running on the sand, splashing in the waves, collecting shells — the magic happens when I’m able to capture your family just being yourselves! This way, it doesn’t even feel like a photoshoot, which can help with the kiddos as well.
This peak lighting time doesn’t get any better when you’re at the beach. It gives an extra warmth to your photos that I absolutely love. Golden hour during beach family photos is unmatched!
When shooting at the beach, you can find a few different scenic spots for some location variation in your photos. A mixture of sand, rocks, and greenery makes for a well rounded family photo session. Nothing beats beach views!
Beach family photo sessions can feel daunting when you have littles, but don’t worry! I have everything under control. My biggest tip for parents? Just let go — embrace the waves, splash around in the water and don’t be afraid of getting a little wet. I promise you that’s when the magic happens.
