Thinking of how to make your beach photoshoot come together? You’ll need a creative concept. This will give you an idea of what exactly you’ll be doing during the shoot. It’ll also produce summery pictures that will look amazing in a gallery or a photo album!

To start you off, here are 9 great beach photoshoot ideas that you can try out yourself or use as inspiration.

9 Creative Beach Photoshoot Ideas

1. Leave Handprints in the Sand

Here’s a simple but cute idea for any pair of lovebirds. Each of you simply presses one open hand into the sand, leaving a handprint. Some couples press their left hands into the sand and then plant their rings or wedding bands on the prints’ ring fingers. Feel free to embellish the shot with your initials written in the sand nearby.

This can be easily adjusted for a family. Just leave some space between the parents’ hands for the little ones to make their prints.

2. Line Up Everyone’s Slippers

Need another simple but cute beach photoshoot idea? Take everyone’s beach slippers and arrange them on the sand. You and your family can be seated in the background if you want. The contrast of colors and sizes between parents’ and children’s slippers can make for an adorable summer-themed picture.

You can borrow this idea for a barkada shoot along the beach, too. Try arranging each pair of slippers with a trademark accessory, such as sunglasses or a waterproof watch. It’ll be much easier to tell which beach slippers belong to whom!

3. Whip Out the Sparklers

Planning to have a beach photoshoot just as the sun sinks over the horizon? Take some sparklers with you. Light them up, wade into the water until it’s up to your calves or knees, and pose away! This idea is great for any group, but it’s especially striking if the subjects are a bride and her bridesmaids in matching dresses.
