Family Portraits

Capture the Memories as You Create Them

Souvenirs may get lost and tan lines eventually fade, but photographs preserve the memories you will want to hold on to in a way that is sure to last. What better way to get those photos than with a family portrait session on the beach, in the warm glow of the sun, surrounded by the natural beauty of Port Aransas? Any of the island’s expert photographers will ensure that your family’s memories will be captured as you create them. Hang the results in the hallways of your home and instantly be transported back to the magic of the coast with every glance.

Here are four steps to a seamless family beach picture experience:

Plan Ahead

Planning a trip to Port Aransas? It’s never too early to start thinking about getting a photography session booked. See below for a full list of available photographers, contact information, and examples of their work.

Trust your Photographer

All local photographers are well-versed in the variables that come along with island life. They will work with you to select the options most suited to your wants and needs. That may mean an early call time to capture some of the best sunrises in Texas or an afternoon spot to take advantage of golden hour lighting. This may also mean tailored suggestions about what spots boast wide-open spaces or have the best chance at getting a flock of pelicans in your shot. 

Be Comfortable

Whether you’re a matching khakis-and-white-shirts aficionado or prefer a broader color palette, the key to an enjoyable family photoshoot is comfort for all parties. Wear the clothes you feel most confident in and do your best to make sure kids are well-fed and well-rested, so everything goes off without a hitch.

Relax and Enjoy

Family photos do not need to be high stress, especially not in Port A! Don’t be afraid to let loose and frolic in the waves, or to let the kids dig their toes (and fingers) in the sand. Often, the best photos are the candid ones that capture the joy and love a family share. Then, when you hang the results in the hallways of your home, you will instantly be transported back to the magic of the coast with every glance.
