When you are on vacation at the beach, it is a great idea to look into having your Orange Beach family beach portraits made by a professional. Not only will you take home some awesome memories and art, your family will enjoy the together time of a portrait session. With literally hundreds of options available, it can be hard to find the right professional for your family. Every artist is different but we are sure with the proper planning and research, you will be able to find one that fits your family to a tee.
There are many factors that you need to discover to find the right professional for you, but I would highly suggest looking first at the art. The true test of a professional beach photographer is how great does their actual sunrise/sunset shots look. Can you see a sunrise/sunset and do the subjects look real and properly lite and balanced with the background. Can you imagine the family in the portfolio shots being yours and would you proudly display it in your home if it was? Do the images look like something you could capture yourself? Do the subjects skin tones look real, or do they look like an Instagram type filter has been added? Are the colors of the environment natural or have they been photoshopped in? These are all really great questions to ask!
What is the point of doing sunrise/sunset beach photography if the sunrise or sunset isn’t even involved right? You think that would be a given, but in all honesty, it is not. If I had a nickel for everything I saw another photographer drag a family out to the beach at sunrise and not even use it as a background! The thought always runs through my mind, what is that family thinking when they see it, but don’t actually get to use it as a backdrop. If they only knew that it wasn’t even an option because their photographer didn’t bring the proper professional lighting equipment to make it happen. Do your research and your walls will thank you for it!
