The biggest question we get is what should we wear. But this is not a one fits all answer. That is why we take the time for your personal consultation to make sure each portrait session is custom tailored to your wants and needs. And what about timing, what is the best time of day to do your family beach portraits? Well this kind of is a one fits all answer and that is it an hour before sunset. If you try to do beach portraits in the middle of the afternoon you are not going to be happy with your results. The sun is too harsh and you will have dark circles under your eyes like a raccoon. Even if your photographer uses a flash which is not flattering in the middle of the afternoon on the beach. Think about it, when you’re on the beach in mid afternoon. you’re wearing sunglasses usually. So we wait until golden hour which is about an hour before sunset. The cotton candy colors of the sky start to form and we can capture this natural light with no flash and create flattering lighting for you and excellent colors to make your images pop.
Due to the custom nature of your portraits and limited lighting at Sunset we can only fit one family per evening so each portraits or on a limited first come first serve basis in an appointment is required. We do book well in advance due to this. So as soon as you know your plans to vacation or visit will be at your summer home reach out to us as soon as possible to reserve your session date! And remember no shoes required but an appointment is!
