Family Photos at the Beach

If you’ve lived in San Diego for a while, you’ve probably taken family photos at the beach. It sounds cliché, but it does provide a beautiful backdrop for your family’s portraits. There are several beaches in San Diego that work really well for portraits. Not to say that a flat beach with pretty waves won’t work, but there are more interesting backgrounds to be found. You don’t want JUST a beautiful sunset setting the scene…think about the surroundings and what provides variety in your family photos. Some beaches have cliffs, others, a nice hotel or the city in the background. If you go to some beaches a low tide, you can get a beautiful reflection in the sand, while at others you have a pier to work with. You and your photographer should discuss the goals of your beach shoot before you head out…there are all kinds of beautiful surprises out there!
