With a wide variety of DSLRs available in the market, everyone has now become a photographer! These days, cameras are so handy and easy to use that they have left hardly any need to hire a photographer. All the family functions, friends’ birthday parties and gala moments are shot by that one person in every group. Everyone compliments the pictures, but you always see one person is missing in all the pictures. Is that person you?

With all this in mind, you still prefer doing it yourself because it’s more economical than hiring a pricey photographer. But sometimes the camera is not just enough! What a family photographer brings with them is much more than that. Here are five reasons why you should stop taking your own family photos and hire a professional photographer to do the job!

  • “You will be in the photos!”

With someone in the family always clicking your family photos, you cannot get that perfect family picture. The fun is not complete until every family member is in the frame. The best reason to hire a photographer is so you can be in the photos! A family photographer will capture you ALL. You can later thank him for the picture perfect credits on Instagram.

  • “The photography will be well planned and styled.”

Say you’re out for a shoot and want some pictures on the beach. A skilled photographer can really help. He can guide you to the best locations and help you pick outfits in various styles for you to try while getting “clicked.” A professional has the experience to know how to take care of each and every detail during photography.

  • Your kids won’t touch the camera!

Most moms and dads can’t say no their kids when they want the camera, which brings the risk of them getting sand all over it or dropping it onto a rock or into the water. Hiring a photographer allows you to avoid all this. More importantly, you can engage with your family and have really natural photos while playing and relaxing on the beach.

  • “Say good-bye to blurred pictures!”

How often have you taken a picture you love, only to find that the image turned out blurry? Hiring a professional photographer insures this won’t happen to your precious family and beach portraits.

  • “You get pictures that are well edited and composed.”

Professional photographers use the best editing tools such as Photoshop and Lightroom to retouch your photos. San Diego photographers know how to balance the colors and brightness to bring out the best in your pictures. They ensure that your images are properly exposed and professionally created.

Obviously when I say, “hire a professional photographer”….I’m talking about me! I am an underwater and beach lifestyle photographer who loves to take photos of rad people having fun….could this be you? Call 858.344.1068 or email me at ellegphotography@me.com to learn more!

Its amazing to think that your heart can be stolen in 2.2 seconds after meeting someone, but thats exactly what happened when I met these 3 wonderful children. They all have such diverse personalities, the brainiac, the flower child and the adventurer. But what they all have in common is manners, curiosity, energy and love. I met their parents 17 years ago when we all worked together at Discovery Cove, in Orlando Florida. Fast forward to 2017, on a cloudy beach in La Jolla, all these years later. Most people might be upset that there wasn’t sun during their family photos. I say embrace the positives! Clouds act light a natural soft box creating diffused, beautiful, soft light. Plus, overcast days are about THE ONLY days you might find an empty beach in San Diego. We scored.

Oh those professional synchronized swimmers…they make underwater portraits look so darn easy. You may not look exactly like Tyler and Ali but if you book an underwater portrait session, I promise you, you will get the hang of it after a few minutes. Most people have never been photographed underwater, I mean this type of photography is not exactly typical. However, you are guaranteed to get something unique and beautiful!

You don’t really need a reason to hire a San Diego photographer to take portraits of you but an occasion like an anniversary is the perfect reason! The Del Angels left their kids at home and opted for a nice little get away in San Diego for their 5 year anniversary. They googled San Diego photographers and lucky for me, found my website. We headed to a little secluded in beach in La Jolla. Good thing for us, it was low tide. Now you might be wondering why the tide matters, but actually some beaches in La Jolla are non existent at high tide. I always check for those types of things before bringing anyone to the beach. Safety first!

The father and son came skateboarding up to greet me for their beach lifestyle portrait session and I was so excited. I love to incorporate peoples personalities in their family portraits and what better way than to brings props like skateboards, bikes, surfboards, etc. I am really game for photographing anything that happens at the beach! The Della Maggiore family came from northern California to visit San Diego and we photographed in my neighborhood of Crystal Pier in Pacific beach.
