La Jolla Scripps Beach | Mother Daughter Family Photos | J+R
As a San Diego family photographer, I love giving out of town clients the best beach experience for their photo session! As locals we may sometimes take the beach for granted. Having out of town clients reminds me of how beautiful it is. In this La Jolla Scripps Beach | Mother Daughter Family Photos | J+R visited from nearby Palm Springs. I am loving these mom and child sessions lately! Definitely getting ahead and having content ready for Mother’s Day!
This session is another example of planning a date where the low tide is near the sunset time. I believe it was around a 2 hour difference. I knocked out the greenery first as we had to walk that way towards the beach. Once we got to the beach, I thought strategically and began with the furthest locations first to avoid the tide coming up too high on us.
It is important to be familiar with your shoot locations. Knowing how much time you have an area before it gets affected can make or break your session! The more times you frequent a location, the better and easier it gets. The more surprises you can avoid, the less anxious you will feel. You wouldn’t want to get stuck with all your gear and clients during a high tide!
Prior to this session, I had communicated with my client outfit ideas. This is a great service you can provide your clients. It reassures them that what they are wearing will look good in the photos. It benefits you, because you know the outfits will complement the surroundings. In the end, nothing is more important than the client(s) feeling confident and comfortable in what they are wearing! It always shows in the photos!
