FAMILY Beach Portraits
At the beach we photograph the family group in mix of different placements to give you several lovely groupings to choose from. We also photograph the children as a group or individually if you wish. Plus the parents as a couple because they always seem to miss out.
Extended or mass families groups are often photographed at the beach. Often families will organize a mass family shoot for parents or grandparents wedding anniversaries or special birthdays. 50th and 60th birthdays are very popular beach portrait occasions. When photographing an extended or mass family group, with time & weather permitting we try to also photograph the separate families etc. This is a great chance to have the individual families photographed so that they will have something for them selves or the other set of grandparents etc.
Gift Vouchers are very popular for beach photography. If you cant get all the family together to be photographed in time for your parents special occasion, then a gift voucher for that special shoot is the next best thing.
Show someone special just how much you love them with an About Faces Photography portrait or portrait gift voucher.

More information for Beach Family, Children’s and Couples Photography
When we photograph a family on the beach we not only do a variety of different shots of the family group, walking, sitting and playing etc. We also photograph the kids together and each child individually if you wish plus some of mum and dad as a couple because usually they haven’t been photographed professionally since their wedding day. For the kids photos on the beach we want them to be natural and have fun as well as doing some tight happy shots that grandma will love. All of this is part of an About Faces Photography beach family or children’s portrait session. Being photographed at the beach is all about living in this great part of Australia.
Our beach portrait sessions are extremely popular with many families from Wollongong area as well as many families traveling to us from Campbelltown, Mittagong, Bowral, Nowra, Berry, Robertson, Gerringong, Kiama, southern Sydney and even overseas clients who email us to book a session for when they are in the Illawarra.
A beach photo shoot is great fun. At the beach we have photographed many different subjects for example a man with his dog, a woman with her horse, loving couples strolling at sun set, single children, sibling groups, families and extended families. Many families want to include their pet or pets in the family portrait. You can add horses, dogs and surfboards, buckets & spades or flocks of seagulls. The beach is a wonderful place for your portraits.
Lighting is the secret to About Faces Photography’s beautiful beach portraits. As with all other aspects of our photography lighting is managed to give the best possible result. If the weather is not conducive to great photography we will postpone your session to ensure you get great images. Weather considerations may be poor light, strong winds or rain.
Clothing for your beach portraits
Clothing is another important aspect of your beach photo shoot. After you have made your booking we take time to discuss your style and advise you on appropriate ways of conveying this to your clothing choices to give you a great look without compromising the final aesthetics of your finished portrait. Therefore when you are making your beach portrait session booking allow some extra time to discuss clothing with us as well. Always bring a warm jacket to slip on incase we need to wait a while for lighting conditions etc. especially for the children.
Hair and/or make up for a beach session.
For men- if you have a ruddy complexion from being out doors a lot but have the paler area where you would normally wear sun glasses it is best to ask you lady to apply a little foundation to blend the areas together. Haircuts should be done at least a week prior to your session so that any previously hidden forehead or neck area can colour up a little. A good spray of hairspray will help keep your hair in place if the wind is up and you don’t like the wind swept look.
For women - your make up should be a normal daytime going out make up and it should also be natural daytime look. If you have hair that may blow across your face it is a good idea to bring a hair slide or clasp and use a really good amount of hair spray.
For children – Hair is the same as the adults, for long hair its great to have a half up half down style, that way it will help keep the hair off their face but allows you to see some of the length.
|Family & Children portraits at home or on your property. Many families have wonderful homes or properties that are ideal to photograph both children and all the family in and around.
