Planning a family vacation on the picturesque Oregon Coast? With its breathtaking scenery, sandy beaches, and stunning sunsets, the Oregon Coast is the perfect backdrop for creating family memories. And what better way to capture those moments than by hiring a talented Oregon Coast photographer? Today I’ll guide you through the process of finding the perfect photographer to beautifully capture your family’s special moments. Whether you are searching for a Cannon beach family photographer or Seaside Oregon photographers I have you covered!

Importance of Hiring a Family Photographer

Preserving your family’s memories is invaluable, and a talented family photographer can turn ordinary moments into extraordinary keepsakes. By hiring a professional photographer, you can relax and enjoy your time together while they expertly document the love and connection within your family.

The Oregon Coast: A Photographer’s Paradise

When searching for a family photographer on the Oregon Coast, you’re in luck! I’ve helped many families plan their session on the coast. This stunning region offers a diverse range of natural landscapes. It’s essential to find a photographer who knows the area well to guide you to the best locations for your family photos.

Tips for Choosing the Perfect Oregon Coast Family Photographer


Look for a photographer with a portfolio that showcases their ability to capture the family bonds and the natural beauty of the Oregon Coast. Consider their experience in family photography and their unique style that resonates with your vision.

Recommendations and Reviews

Seek recommendations from friends, family, or online communities. Read reviews and testimonials to gauge the photographer’s professionalism, reliability, and ability to work with families, especially with children.


Effective communication is vital when working with a family photographer. Ensure they understand your expectations, discuss locations and themes.

Packages and Pricing

Review the photographer’s pricing structure and packages to ensure they align with your budget and desired services. Some photographers (like myself) offer prints, albums, or digital images, so consider what options are important to you.

Breathtaking Locations for Your Family Session with a Cannon Beach Family Photographer and Seaside Oregon Photographer

Cannon Beach

Renowned for its iconic Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach offers captivating backdrops for your family photos. The wide sandy beach, towering rock formations, and stunning coastal vistas create a picturesque setting that will make your photos truly memorable. As a experienced Cannon Beach family photographer, I am intimately familiar with the area and can guide you to the best spots.


Embrace the charm of Seaside, another fantastic location for your family photoshoot. Its beachfront promenade and vibrant atmosphere provide a dynamic backdrop. From the sandy shores and crashing waves to the peaceful beach grass in the dunes, Seaside offers a diverse range of backdrops for capturing unique family moments. Whether you’re seeking a Cannon Beach family photographer or a Seaside family photographer, I have the expertise to document your family’s special moments against these stunning coastal backdrops.

When to Visit The Oregon Coast and Where to Stay

The weather at the coast can be unpredictable, making summer the safest choice for a warm day. June – September is always my recommendation but if you’re set on winter at the beach we can bundle up for a cozy session. You’ll want to schedule your session about an hour before sunset, adjusting timing based on location and lighting. Consider booking on a weekday for fewer crowds, and more privacy.

For your stay on the Oregon Coast in Cannon Beach or Seaside there are a range of accommodations. From luxury oceanfront resorts to cozy beachside rentals on Airbnb and VRBO. You’ll have no trouble finding a place to stay that suits both your needs and budget.

“Lena was so amazing to work with. She interacted so well with my young children (ages 2 and 4) and was able to capture some beautiful candid photos of them. Taking family photos can be so stressful but Lena made it such a peaceful experience. Our entire gallery was beautiful! The attention to detail with the printed photos and display box was truly the icing on the cake. We will definitely be working with Salt & Ink Photography again in the future.”
