5 Summer Photoshoots Ideas

Since we are approaching the summer season, I’d love to dive into fun summer photoshoot ideas!

As a portrait photographer located in Houston, Tx, I’m thrilled to share with you five exciting ways to capture the joy and warmth of the summer season. From indulging in delicious ice-cream treats to soaking up the sun at the beach, we’ll explore creative ways to make your summer memories last a lifetime.

Icecream Summer Photoshoot

To begin with, why not capture the sweetness of summer with a fun ice-cream photoshoot?

As soon as this couple and I heard the ice-cream truck, we knew it had to be part of the photoshoot. It was so fun to capture them enjoying their ice-cream on a hot summer day.

After all, you can’t deny the fact that the ice-cream adds the pops of color on the images. During this summer photoshoot, there’s was no shortage of sweet moments.

Next, head on down to the beach for a sun-kissed photoshoot by the shore. Feel the warm sand between your toes, listen to the gentle waves, and have fun splashing in the waves.

The beach is a great way to get those amazing sceneries of the ocean and sky. Don’t be afraid to be spontaneous at the beach. It’s the only way to get endless opportunities to capture laughter and smiles.

And by the way, try to avoid weekend shoots at the beach – specially holiday weekends!

At Home

If you’re looking for a more laid-back vibe, consider having a fruity photoshoot right in the comfort of your own home.

This couple decided to document their house being built by having a photoshoot. They had watermelon as a fun prop and I was there to capture the juicy goodness in every bite.

So if you’re looking for a cozy and intimate summer photoshoot idea, this would be the perfect way to go. Just gather a variety of fresh fruits like strawberries, watermelon, and grapes, and set up a cute picnic blanket in your backyard. With the vibrant colors of the fruits and the lush greenery as your backdrop, you’ll create stunning photos that capture the essence of summer.

Studio Sessions to Avoid the Summer Heat

For those who prefer an indoor setting, why not book a studio session?

With the summer heat in Houston, Tx, I know this would be one of the best options. With professional lighting and a variety of backdrops to choose from, you can let your creativity run wild!

Whether you’re going for a classic portrait or a playful theme, a studio session offers endless possibilities for creating beautiful photos.

Kemah Boardwalk Summer Photoshoot

And finally, for a fun-filled summer photoshoot with a touch of nostalgia, head over to the Kemah Boardwalk for some classic boardwalk games.

From carnival rides to arcade games, there’s plenty of excitement to capture as you enjoy a day of laughter and play. Kemah Boardwalk offers plenty of opportunities for capturing candid and joyous moments.

And just like the beach advice, try to avoid weekend shoots at Kemah – specially holiday weekends.
