Preparing for your Beach Session

Summer is officially here and I can’t think of a more perfect setting for your summer family photos than the beach!

What to wear to your beach photoshoot

Skip the all white shirt look and go for some pops of color!
Select a complimentary color scheme for your family and dress everyone in coordinating colors.

Sun dresses for the girls and khakis for the guys is always a great choice. Keep in mind you are likely to get a little wet so if your clothing is not ideal for this, look for a lightweight fabric that wont mind some saltwater splashing.

No shoes needed! Barefoot is always encouraged at the beach. Especially since we spend half of the session in the water or running through the sand!

More Tips for your beach session

PREPARE FOR WIND! Prepare for your clothes and your hair to be blowing. Doesn’t matter the weather, it is always windy at the beach.
Ladies, it’s best to pull your hair away from your face or style in a cute up-do! Check out these hair style suggestions.

ENJOY THE MOMENT! When prompted to love on your little ones, don’t look at the camera, look at your family to engage your little ones during this time. Think of how you play at home and feel free to do these things you know your kids love! I’ll prompt for twirls, splashing in the water and lots of play time. Your kids will follow your lead if you’re smiling, laughing and having fun, they are more likely to do the same.

If you haven’t booked your family’s beach session, there’s still time! We have sessions in June and August available. LEARN MORE.
