Springtime is here and schools are starting to let out for Spring Break! Whether your family is enjoying a staycation, heading to the beach, or venturing to the mountains, you are sure to be making memories your children will cherish for the rest of their lives. If the whole family is heading off to the beach this Spring Break, we have a few tips and tricks when it comes to capturing the perfect family photo on the beach.
You don’t have to go with all white and khaki look anymore, but it is more pleasing to the eye when everyone’s clothing coordinates slightly! You can keep it pretty simple and choose one color and do a variation of that color on everyone. One color combination that looks really good is having the family wear navy, blue, jean colored, and white! You can’t really go wrong – just stay away from super contrasting colors or mixing too many patterns.
While you definitely want some great posed photos on the beach, creating a few “candids” is always a good idea as well! It’s a great way to show off each family member’s personality. You can have your family do a funny face or the parents swing the children in their arms or whatever your family wants! These are your pictures and you can make them as classic, fun, or silly as you’d like.
Since the whole family is dressed up, you might as well take this moment to get an individual portrait of each kid! These are great because you can see how much your child has grown each year if you decide to do these photos every year.
Sharing Your Photos
When all is done and the photos are taken, you’re going to want to easily share your photos from the photoshoot and from the entire Spring Break trip with other family members who want to see them! Rather than uploading millions of photos to Facebook where everyone can see them, use the Share Your Photos App. It allows you to share all your photos privately with the people who join your event, that way you can put up all the funny photos that you don’t want the whole world to see. Best of all? It’s totally free! All you have to do is sign up and create an event.
With these few tips, your Spring Break will be captured perfectly! All that’s left to do is pick out the perfect outfit, grab a towel and sunscreen, and head to the beach!
