As an Oregon coast family photographer, I can assure you that having your photos at the beach is incredible! You already know what a gem the Oregon coast is. Imagine your next location for your photo shoot here!
On this blog, I will share a maternity photo shoot where I was a featured artist in Bold, Emotional, Colorful and a wonderful family that I have photographed multiple times. They played on the beach, climbed the beautiful sand dunes, and had a blast being together at the beach!
An Oregon Coast photo shoot is ideal for families that are adventurous, free spirited, and love the beauty of the PNW. Further, Cape Kiwanda is one of the most gorgeous beaches along the coast due to its huge blue crashing waves, giant burnt colored sand dunes, and large rock formations. It is easy to get to, only a few hours from Portland Oregon, and quick beach access. You can get as venturesome as you want or simply walk the beach. Either way, your photos will be unique and beautiful.
You and your family can make a day trip or plan a weekend to explore the beach and small town before you have your photos taken. In addition, if you go during mid September, you can catch the surf competition. It’s so much fun! Grab lunch and a beer at Pelican Brewery and watch the surfers head out into the ocean. Moreover, the vibe on the beach is really chill and everyone is always friendly. It’s a great weekend getaway and fun family activity.
At first, you may think Summer is the only time to head to the beach for family photos. This family was photographed in September. There was a light drizzle towards the end of the hour long photo shoot but otherwise very comfortable weather. You know the PNW weather is pretty unpredictable. So, with a little planning, you would be surprised that any time of year can work. I have photographed families in January and the weather was phenomenal.
Check out this Cannon Beach family photo shoot that was in January! You would never know it was the middle of winter.
If you are currently pregnant and are interested in maternity photography at the beach, I recommend contacting me now and scheduling your session about 28-35 weeks of pregnancy. If you are interested in family photography, contact me and we can discuss when the best time would be for your family, but really anytime of year typically works.
You can relax knowing I will help prepare your family on what to wear and how to prepare your kids. You will have access to my simple welcome guide, easy to digest blogs, and I will guide you every step of the way.
Last, just be yourselves and follow my lead, your photos will be authentic to your family and an experience you will all enjoy.
