What better reason for a photo session with your family than a family vacation?! I love when my clients are here for family vacation. I get to work with so many people from all over the world, documenting their happy vacations! Oceanside, California has some amazing beaches and the Oceanside Pier is always a great choice for family photos!

The Oceanside Pier has so many different options for photos and I always have so much fun with families and couples getting amazing photos at this spot!

Vision or Style:
This family coordinated in all the tones of blues, whites, and denims with their own personal style to make it look cohesive! Picking outfits for family photos can be tough but when you agree on a color palette, the results are beautiful!

Favorite Moment:
My favorite moment was towards the end of the shoot when all of the kids began to relax and play together on the beach. Those make the best photos in my opinion!

Favorite Photo:
My favorite photo of the entire family was right on top of the Oceanside Pier. That can be a crowded and sunny location at times but this day was absolutely perfect for the light and the crowds – I just love that photo! Enjoy! 🙂
