How to make the most out of your family photo session in a Mexican Beach.

So you have decided to hire a photographer to make some amazing pictures of your family during your vacation to one of many beautiful beaches in Mexico. Perfect plan! Now, I’d like to share with you some super useful tips I’ve learned during my experience as a working photographer in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit that will make your pictures look better, as well as make the experience pleasant, too.

Consider the time of the day and season.

The most basic pillar of any photography is the lightning, and, as you might be planning on some outdoor shots, the time of the day will change dramatically the look of your photos. Usually, we, photographers prefer to work early in the morning  -a bit later than sunrise- or late in the afternoon – close to the sunset- as the quality of light is better and make wonderful backgrounds like the spectacular sunsets in the Pacific Coast.

Take into consideration what to wear.

Of course, you want to look awesome in your pictures, and one of the easiest way to help your photographer to accomplish that goal is what you decide to wear.

In terms of your clothes, I always suggest that it has to be comfortable so you can enjoy the whole process – however, try to avoid very loose garments -. In regards to colors, light plain ones work the best. White is welcome but could be difficult to handle in very bright situations or if your skin tone is dark.

Finally, I usually ask my clients, if their session is happening some days after they arrived at the destination is to use sunscreen lotion, mainly on the face in order to prevent severe sunburn marks.

Be open to different ideas.

It is totally understandable that you decided to get your pictures taken on the beach as part of the vacation, however, you could be surprised with the beauties and interesting spots you might haven’t heard about but your photographer has. From different landscapes to architectural gems or places that represent the local tradition. If you agree in going that direction it is very likely that your pictures have that unique taste of the unexpected.

As well, the season of the year will determine from the point sun is rising and setting to the chances of having a cloudy day, plus the heat factor.

Take into consideration what to wear.

Of course you want to look awesome in your pictures, and one of the easiest way to help your photographer to accomplish that goal is what you decide to wear, and here I’m referring to some more things than just the outfit, but first, let’s tackle that point.

In terms of your clothes, I always suggest that it has to be comfortable so you can enjoy the whole process – however, try to avoid very loose garments -. In regards to colors, light plain ones work the best. White is welcome but could be difficult to handle in very bright situations or if your skin tone is dark.

Tatts 4 food by Vallarta Ink . Fotógrafo en Puerto Vallarta

Debo admitir que tengo una fascinación por los tatuajes y el arte corporal,  y no me resistí a formar parte del evento a beneficio de la casa hogar Máximo Cornejo, en Puerto Vallarta, que organizaron los artistas de Vallarta Ink. Además de la buena vibra y la cooperación de mucha gente que sin pedir nada a cambio, el ambiente fue excelente, al parecer, la recolección de comida y artículos de limpieza fue mayor a lo esperado. Aquí les dejo unos clicks.

13.13.13 What a lucky number. Wedding photography in Nuevo Vallarta by Lime fotografia

I must say this year has turned into a very positive one since the very begining, in several ways: my family is doing great, I am enjoying so much  the rewarding yet difficult role of being a dad, and I am getting to know such nice people whilst doing what I love.

Late November, I received an information inquiry from a gentleman from Canada – funny thing as my website hasn´t been translated to English already- asking  me to make some pictures of his wife and him as they decided to renew their wedding vows in Nuevo Vallarta during their winter family vacations. After some e mails, things went through the right way and they decided to make me part of that special time for their family.

On January 13th we met at Paradise Village Resort for a very intimate ceremony lead by this amazing minister-dj-wedding planner-first time mom-bride to be, called Staci Nichols , and  finally I met this lovely  family . Everything was so relaxed yet filled with beautiful details ( coordinated by Staci, too) that positive energy flowed all over the place. It was very emmotional as they picked that particular day : 13-1-13 to celebrate their 13th anniversary .

I heard this quote recently : ” when things are done with passion, good things will follow” and every day is clearer for me.

Be happy!
