Planning A Vacation Photo Session – Carlsbad, CA Family Photographer
We are very lucky living here for a multitude of reasons.
*It’s always warm
*It’s almost always sunny
*Did I mention is mostly always warm??!!
We also live in a highly sought after tourist destination. Many families coming to the area want their time here documented and I love that! Nothing beats vacation smiles!
I feel so fortunate that several families have chosen me to document their time here in Carlsbad. For a few of them it’s documenting a special occasion for them and for others it’s simply documenting their family here in this beautiful place I am lucky enough to call home.
My biggest piece of advice: take the time to research and find the style of photographer that best fits your family’s style too. I’m not for everyone and there is no one photographer that is. Look at their work, especially in locations you think you might want.
Most visiting families want the beach, especially if they are coming in from an inland/landlocked location. This works out great for me because, um hello, we have an incredibly gorgeous coastline here for miles and miles. I take the time to give families the various options in the general vicinity, including pros and cons.
Also ask questions. How far a spot is from your hotel or AirBnB, recommendations of make up artists or hair salons if you choose hair and make up prior to your session, how photos will be delivered, best time for the shoot and of course location input.
I so appreciate anyone choosing me to photograph their family, but especially those coming in from out of town. I want their photo session to be just as fun and awesome as their vacation here to Carlsbad or San Diego is!
