Summer is one of my favorite seasons (the other is Fall). But what I really love about summer is spending time at the beach. The ocean, the sand, the sun…there is just something about it that makes everyone relax. It’s also one of my favorite places to take photos. Here are 3 reasons why I love documentary beach sessions.

Memories that Include The Entire Family

Usually there is one person taking the pictures when you’re on vacation or you’re passing the camera back and forth. These sessions capture the entire family having fun together and making memories. You can put down your phone or camera and just be present and enjoy each other.

Relaxed Parents

There is something about the beach or being on vacation that relaxes parents. Kids have more room to run and play and parents can just enjoy being with their family. Also, different from a regular family photo session, mom isn’t feeling pressure to get that “perfect family photo”. These sessions are just about capturing those fun and carefree memories you’re making at the beach that you will talk about in the colder months and years to come.

Fun For Everyone

This isn’t a session you are trying to convince your family to smile and behave for (which by the way I don’t expect for my family sessions either!). This is a friend with a camera hanging out with you at the beach. And since most people love the beach, whether it’s playing in the sand or jumping the waves, there is no trying to get a smile from anyone, they just happen naturally.
