beach photo shoot bristol weston clevedon

There are some spectacular beaches near Bristol for a family photo shoot. South Wales and Somerset have a variety of great beaches and promenades for a photo shoot which are all very close to Bristol too.

The sunsets are wonderful all year round and particularly great from March to October.

I have taken many family photographs at Portishead, Clevedon, Brean, Severn, and Weston Super Mare beaches, so I know all the best spots to go, to capture that lasting memory for you.

Portishead beach family photo shoot

This family joined me in March  for a sunset evening family photo shoot. We chose an hour before sunset to meet because it is the 'golden hour'; the time when the light is most flattering for portrait photographs and glowing sunsets.

A beach photo shoot lasts approx 1 hour, you can also book a special 30 minute beach session on various dates throughout the year.

What happens during the photo shoot?

Beach photo shoots are so much fun and because of this it is easy to get natural photographs. You can go for a walk, play or sit on a blanket and have some semi-posed photographs. It is all based on your preferences.

I have a few prompts and games for children and I give gentle guidance to position you in the best light. You may find me adjusting your hair if it is windblown and fixing any clothing that may have moved. You can relax and feel assured I will get the best photographs taken of your family.

Planning your outfits for a beach photo shoot

Choosing outfits for your family is the fun part!  When choosing outfits for a beach photo shoot, I find it is always best to choose just 2 or 3 colours for the family to wear. Decide if you would like a lighter colour palette or dark.

Blue and navy are great for contrasting images that allow you stand out amongst the more orangy, blue background. Whereas, pastel colours have a more dreamy look and blend into the beach background.

White, blue and pastels are always a good choice for the beach too.

How much does a beach photo shoot cost & what is included?

You can book a family photo shoot with a small deposit, photographs are provided and include a mounted print and digital files. You can also purchase packages which will save you money the more photographs your purchase.  For full details please visit my family photo shoot details page.

I also run special mini session days throughout the year, when I photograph 3 or 4 families in one day/evening for a shorter photo shoot (30minutes).

I am able to offer slightly lower priced sessions as they are shorter in length and your photo gallery will include approx 10 photographs to choose from instead of 60 for a full gallery.

Please join my mailing list below or contact me to find out when the next days are being held.
