Here’s some tips and locations on how to make the most of your photo shoot on a hot day:

Summer Family Photos | Family Fun by the Pool

Poolside: There’s nothing quite like spending a delightful summer day with your loved ones by the cool and refreshing pool. If your family spends summers poolside, why not capture you family photos in your element? Plus, the kids will love it. Grab your sunscreen  and prepare for a day filled with laughter, splashes and joy by the poolside oasis.

Consider booking your summer family photos poolside at your home or at a resort.

Summer Family Photos | Summer Beach Day

Beach Day: A memorable and joyful summer day awaits you as you plan a picture-perfect beach outing in the charming coastal town of Laguna Beach. Immerse yourselves in the sound of crashing waves, golden sand between your toes, and the sea breeze kissing your skin. Capture priceless moments in your summer family photos as you bask in the sun, build sandcastles and splash around in the waves.

Strands in Dana point is the perfect spot for your summer family photos on the beach.

Summer Family Photos | A Golden Hour Family Picnic

Picnic: After the sun has settled down, seat your family on a cozy blanket spread out and have a picnic. Imagine your family photos with a sunset and blooming flowers in the background. Bring some snacks for the little ones and imagine adorable photos of melting popsicles in their hands (we’ll save that for last!) and other tasty treats.

Stay inside: Where does your family escape to when it’s too hot to go outside? Maybe it’s the movie theaters, playing a board game at home or doing some crafts. If you don’t want to face the heat during your summer family photo session, let’s go inside and have some fun instead. Think of eating popcorn while watching a movie together, getting competitive over your favorite game, or getting creative while making a piece of art together.
