There might not be anything more amazing than doing a sunset beach newborn session when you specialize in newborn photography. When my husband told me we were going to travel down to San Diego because of a work retreat, I just knew if I didn’t do a sunset beach session, I would regret it. It looked like the weather would be absolutely perfect; lots of beautiful sunshine and warm enough to take a baby to the beach. The stars were aligning! I asked a few photographer friends of mine down in the area if they would be interested in joining me. It was so great that a couple of them were able to fit it in with their busy lives. They even posted a few model calls and found some babies for us to photograph!
When I showed up at the beach about an hour before sunset, I noticed that it was considerably cooler and a breeze was coming through pretty steadily. I was a bit worried it was good cold for baby Brody, who came to us at just 5 days old. Luckily, one of the other photographers knew of a little section of beach that was a little more secluded and tucked back around a large cliff which gave us lots of protection from the wind. We also had plenty of blankets and little props for Brody to keep him nice and warm. This beautiful babe with his full head of hair didn’t even make a peep! We made it through a couple of set ups in the half an hour we had to photograph him before the sun set for the evening. He was perfect.
Here are a couple of my faves from his beach newborn session. I think I need to make these trips every year so I can keep doing these!
