Beach Family Photos: How To Make the Most of Your Beach Photo Shoot

Beach Family Photos: How To Make the Most of Your Beach Photo Shoot

Spring is here and summer will be here shortly. That means it is time for the vacation season to start. My favorite way to vacation is by the beach and the most important part of vacations is making memories. What better way to preserve those memories than by taking family pictures. With help from South Carolina based photographer, Denise Benson, we have tips on how to make the most of your beach photo shoot.

Beach Family Photos: How To Make the Most of Your Beach Photo Shoot

1. Always consider the time when shooting at the beach.  The sun can cast harsh shadows over your face so you want to make sure to shoot either early in the morning (30-60 minutes after the sun has risen) or in the evening an hour before sunset.


2. The beach makes for great candids.  Use this time to not only capture more traditional, posed images, but to have fun as a family and get some candid moments of you playing, walking and laughing together.


3. Get creative with your locations.  When most people think of beach sessions they automatically assume all of the shots will be taken on the sand by the water, but switching things up like shooting near sand dunes with them as your backdrop (not on them) or under a pier can be a fun way to add variety to your shoot.


4. Keep your wardrobe casual.  The beach offers a variety of poses including feet in the water or sitting on the beach watching the sunset so wear something you don’t mind getting a little messy, but still looks great on camera.  And leave the heels/dress shoes at home.


5. Last but not least, have fun!  You’re likely at the beach for a family vacation and wanted to fit in a quick photoshoot while there so make this an enjoyable experience for everyone.  Don’t be afraid to get in the water, build sand castles or draw hearts in the sand.  The more fun you have the better the session will turn out.
