Everything looks better with natural lighting, especially when you’re at the beach. Time sunlight that’s not too bright nor overcast. Early mornings and sunsets are the best times to photograph people in natural light.

Choosing the right backdrop for your subject is just as important as your subject itself. Try experimenting with foregrounds and negative space to give your photo a more dynamic feel.

Happy 1st, love. ❤️
