Dana Point Family Portraits on the Beach
These Dana Point family portraits on the were amazing! While most of our family portrait sessions with families with young children involve a lot of tickling, giggling, running, and silliness. This was no exception! Sometimes there’s even a little pouting, crying, begging, and bribing. We do whatever we can to get those kids to look in the right direction and SMILE, right?! Well this family was fantastic we started out taking Family Portraits on the beach in Laguna at the Montage Hotel and ended at Salt Creek Beach Park in Dana Point. On a later day we ended up taking Dana Point family portraits on the beach! This two location photo shoot is rare but it was fun and the kids enjoyed the sand we think their smiles sure showed it too. On another note, this photo shoot is a perfect example of color coordinating, the O family was fantastically dressed for their Dana Point Family Portraits and chose contrasting colors to make everyone stand out for their family photos.
Dana Point family portraits on the beach are magical. There is something about the smell of the salt in the air and the crisp roar of the incoming tide that make beach photography in Dana Point truly a magical experience.
We loved shooting in Laguna Beach and moving on to Dana Point on a later day to capture more smiles. The reason of the two shoots were Marvin captured amazing photos but felt that amazing wasn’t good enough so he called the family and set up a photo shoot on a later date to capture more unique dana point family portraits on the beach. This time he scheduled it in the morning when both children were more receptive to having some fun. With cookies in hand and lots of smiles the second shoot was a success and the rest is history! Its very rare that Marvin will schedule an additional shoot at a later date, but if he does its usually because the weather inst conducive to the photo shoot.
I love the family portrait at the end of this post. It contains so much color and life!
