La Jolla Scripps Beach Family Photos | Pam + Tom

As a San Diego family portrait photographer, there are so many picturesque backdrops to choose from for your family session! Whether it’s the park, like Balboa Park, or the beach, or in-between! It’s great when you can even get a mix of some too! In these La Jolla Scripps Beach Family Photos | Pam + Tom got a mix of greenery with the beautiful ocean! I would like to say that the greenery is dependent on season. So that is definitely something you want to consider when booking any session. If you are looking for a particular backdrop, make sure you are in the right season!

When preparing for your family portraits, it’s always a great idea to think ahead on outfit choices. As a La Jolla family photographer, I always like to let my clients know that they are free to send me their outfit looks should they want feedback. Especially if there are kids involved, you want to make sure the colors flow seamlessly. More so if there are patterns too. You want to consider what your backdrop colors are and whether what you choose will contrast or complement that.

When shooting at the beach, keep in mind the chances of getting your feet wet are high. If there are certain clothes you don’t want to risk getting wet, I would strongly consider not using it then. For pants, I would definitely cuff them up so they don’t get wet. I would suggest darker bottoms over light, as if they get wet, it’s less obvious when they are dark. If they are light then the splashes leave more of a mark.

If you are ordering clothes online, make sure you have enough time to receive them and try them on. You don’t want to wait till the day of to try on the clothes. You want to give yourself enough time to exchange the items if need be.
