Blue Mountain Beach Family Sunset Portrait Session
Happy Wednesday Peeps! Today on the Blog we are exited to feature this family session from one of our October Sunset Beach sessions at Blue Mountain Beach. We had so much fun joking around with this family and wondering who was going to be the bigger of the trouble makers between these two guys - in the end the competition was pretty tight! LOL
We even snuck in a little mini Senior "prep' photo session with this Kentucky cutie. And I'm not gonna lie, he wins for the best comment overheard at one of my photo sessions....
keep scrolling to see what he said!
As we were headed towards the water he asked he if could do some pics with his shirt off in the water, with approval from mom, he begins to tug at his shirt and he politely asks me... "hey, can you make my arms look like his" >>> as he is pointing to Tim. Yep - he had me busting out laughing the rest of the session! Not only great looks, he also has a great personality!
7 Tips for Great Outdoor Portraits
Being outdoors in the summer sun is a great setting for some fun photos of you and your loved ones. In order to get the best results from your session, there are a few things to consider before you step in front of your photographer’s lens.
Wear sunscreen. If you are going to be out in the sun for a long period of time, especially with children, sunscreen is a must. It can however also make your skin look quite shiny. If possible apply makeup that has built-in sunscreen otherwise apply some powered concealer to spots that look especially oily.
Bring along some tissues & concealer powder. Unless it's a cool day, you're probably going to sweat. Bring along some tissues for dabbing off the sweat and your concealer powder for touch ups.
There might be bugs. Photos in the woods can be romantic and beautiful but depending on the time of day and the area you’re in, it could mean swatting away flies and mosquitos. A little bug repellent can make your photo session a lot more pleasant
Stay hydrated. Posing for pictures may not seem like hard work but in the hot sun, you don't have to move around much to be affected by the heat. Make sure you bring lots of water and other hydrating beverages, and drink up often.
Apply makeup sparingly. You want that fresh, sun kissed look in your photos so don’t overdo your makeup application.
What you wear matters. Choose clothing that is comfortable and fits your body shape. Feel free to incorporate accessories such as a hat but don’t let it overwhelm the photo.
Choose your time of day. Since midday can be scorching, plan your shoot early in the morning or just before the sun sets to avoid looking hot and flustered in your photos.
