San Diego is one of the most beautiful places to take your family photography. Besides the beautiful beaches and the landmarks like Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo, Pacific Beach, La Jolla, Torrey Pines, Hotel Del Coronado, and so on, there are plenty of locations to choose your next family photography location.
Some of the beautiful beaches for family or couples photo sessions are Sunset Cliffs, Torrey Pines, Encinitas - Swamis, Carlsbad, Coronado Beach, and Pacific Beach where you will find the Crystal Pier.
As a photographer, you can't ask for better weather than San Diego. It is beautiful to capture pictures all year long and the scenery can change and have its own characteristics for each season.
Many people come to San Diego for vacation and one of the first locations that every family wants is the beach. The beaches are indeed beautiful to take photos but don't get me wrong, there are many other places that you can explore and bring a California feel to your session within a close radius.
Many people ask me: Where is the best place to take photos in San Diego? I say: It depends.
Depend on your family lifestyle, your hobbies, and the wardrobe you have in mind for the session.
Don't matter what location you pick, San Diego offers great weather that let us be always active and create amazing storytelling images for the family all around the world.
Another benefit of being in San Diego is that a couple of hours away you can be in the snow or in the desert. These locations are amazing for family or couples photography. You will find a range of family photographers in San Diego and it is important that you do your homework, find a photographer that you like their style, and/or identify yourself with the images they capture. Every photographer in San Diego has a different style. These styles go from "Lifestyle" which is the style that I photograph, you will find the more casual posing photographer. These are the typical "Say Cheese" images. Also, there are San Diego family fine art photographers which can make really amazing things in your images if that is what you want.
At last, make sure that when you are hiring a San Diego Family Photographer, you make some effort on wardrobe selection. It is half of the photo session results, if not more, and since you are spending to capturing your family story, spend a bit more finding a great outfit for the whole family. Many photographers, including myself, offer styling consultations so you will have peace of mind when choosing the right wardrobe for the whole family.
I hope this was helpful and I hope to see your images soon.
