Coronado in November is just as beautiful to me as Coronado in July! The different months have a different feel but the beauty remains the same!
This gorgeous family snagged a last minute spot in the packed month of November and I am so glad they did. They came with a contagious, happy spirit to this Coronado Beach Family Session that left me so grateful for this work.
In preparation of your shoot, think about what you want your overall gallery to look and feel like. Who are your right now? What do you want to capture in your photos? Do you want an urban vibe? Then look at ripped jeans, cute booties and a leather or suede jacket? Want something a little more "beach" then ladies, think fitted bodice with flowy bottom on a dress and, guys, khakis, your fave t-shirt and a pullover. Layers also add some interest and depth to your images. Think vests, scarves, denim or leather jackets, hats…wear something that reveals a bit of who you are!
Another thing you want to keep in mind is WHERE you want to shoot around San Diego? San Diego offers so many backdrops from the beach, to something rustic, to something a bit more urban. All good things to think about when we are planning your shoot.
And a few other tips I always mention are the following: haircuts at least a week before to give your hair time to relax into the cut for both guys and girls, clean nails - this doesn't mean you have to spend on manicures but clean nails are a must, and, for the ladies, think about getting your makeup done or adding a bit more than usual to add a pop! Another thing I mention to my people is that if you are going to get a spray tan, make sure you loofah and go to a reputable place so that it looks even. I actually prefer your own beautiful skin tone over the tans, but that's just me. :)
