Why do a Sunrise Beach Session? | Satellite Beach Family Photographer | Extended Family Session

July 17, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

It's summer and the afternoon/evening thunderstorm season is here. That means photographers and their clients are often fretting over whether or not their evening sessions are going to be rained out. The solution? Sunrise sessions! If you know me, you know I am not a morning person, but I love sunrise sessions and they are worth it every time! You may be asking yourself why go through the extra effort to wake up early, get yourself and your family ready, and get to the beach before sunrise? Especially if you're like me and are not a fan of early mornings... keep reading for my list of reasons you might want to do your beach session at sunrise.

1. If you have little ones, especially babies and young toddlers, they are more likely to be happy for an early morning session than a sunset session that is likely past their bedtime or during evening cranky time.

2. Mornings are often cooler so you're less likely to feel like you're melting if we don't have much of a breeze. But don't worry if it's still muggy and gross, you'll never be able to tell by your photos that it was hot and sticky!

3. We are much less likely to have to reschedule due to rain! The rainy season can make sunset beach sessions a little stressful leading up to them with wondering if it will be raining or not. Skip the stressing and let's do it at sunrise instead.

4. When you do your session at sunrise, you get it done first thing and then you have the rest of your day to do as you please. You won't be thinking about your upcoming session all day, hoping your little ones nap on time, figuring out a quick dinner before or after your session, etc.

5. Since the sun rises here over the ocean, we get the sunrise and it's colors over the water instead of the sunsets that are over the dunes (or blocked by buildings).

6. If we're lucky and have some clouds in the east, not only will we get more amazing colors but they'll last longer throughout the session and give us softer light for your photos.

7. There's no worries that we'll run out of light if anyone needs a little longer to warm up or needs a quick break.

8. The beaches are much less crowded in the mornings so we don't need to worry about a bunch of extra people around or being in the background. This is especially important around the major beach holidays and vacation times.

9. Sunrise sessions can sometimes be easier to coordinate when working with varying work schedules, especially with extended families who live locally.

10. Bring swim suits and beach toys and make a day of it! With toddlers and younger kids, they're usually wet by the end of the session anyway from playing near or even in the water. Enjoy the beach without the big crowds and let your kiddos continue playing after the session is over.

A sunrise session was not what we originally planned for this extended family session, but after having to reschedule sunset times for rain and illness, the timing just worked out better for a sunrise session. It turned out to be a beautiful morning and I'm honored to have been chosen to capture this beautiful family.
