With the weather heating up outside, you may be starting to think about summer family photo ideas. There’s so much you can do to forget about the heat and focus on fun with your family. Let me help you capture those summer memories.
Head to the Beach – Summer Family Photo Ideas
First, nothing screams summer like a trip to the beach. The waves, ocean breeze and sand between your toes is the perfect way to enjoy the summer. An important thing to realize, there is no shade on the beach, so if you are scheduling a session, keep the lighting in mind. With this in mind, super early morning or later in the evening is the perfect time.
Make Use of your Backyard
Second, so simple, yet so often overlooked. In general, when you think about places that your whole family is comfortable and relaxed, the backyard should be top of your list. Most importantly, it costs nothing to hang out and play in the yard.
Hit the Lake
Uniquely Austin, okay probably not, but a favorite here, the lake! Austin has so many beautiful lakes, you can’t go wrong. From Lady Bird Lake to Lake Austin to Quarry Lake, plus so many more close by, you’re covered.
Frolic in the Flowers
This just might be a personal favorite of mine, but you can never go wrong with frolicking in the flowers! Austin is a hotbed for beautiful wildflowers. From our spring bluebonnets to our summer blooms, Austin has no shortage of beautiful wildflower fields.
Final Summer Family Photo Ideas – The Park
Finally, just like the Lakes in Austin, we have no shortage of parks here! No matter if you’re in South Austin, North Austin, or any surrounding cities, your neighborhood park is always a winner.
