Considering a family beach photoshoot in Costa Rica? Here are some tips of my favorites beaches

The North Pacific Coast beaches are definitely worth checking out. Not only are they absolutely beautiful, but they also provide an excellent backdrop for family photoshoots. As a Costa Rica photographer who has done many family sessions in this area, I have some recommendations to help you make the most of your trip.

Hire a Local Photographer
If you’re traveling to Costa Rica and want to capture your family’s memories, I recommend hiring a local photographer who knows the area well. A Costa Rica photographer will not only be able to recommend the best locations for your family session, but they will also be able to give you insider tips on the best time of day for the best lighting and how to make the most of your session.

Plan Ahead
When planning your family session, make sure you communicate your vision and expectations with your photographer. If you have specific poses or styles in mind, let them know in advance so they can prepare accordingly. Also, plan your outfits ahead of time to ensure that everyone is dressed appropriately and complement each other well.

Consider Playa Langosta
Playa Langosta is a beautiful beach located just south of Tamarindo, known for its stunning sunsets and pristine waters. It’s a great location for a family session, with plenty of space for the kids to run around and play. It’s also a popular spot for surfing, so if you’re interested in capturing some action shots, this is the place to be.

Need to check Out Playa Avellanas!
Playa Avellanas is another great location for a family session. This beach is known for its natural beauty, with rocky tide pools and towering palm trees. It’s a quieter spot than some of the other beaches in the area, making it ideal for families who want a more intimate setting. If you love outdoor activities, this is the perfect spot for some family surf lessons or walking to the unique Avellanas bride under the Mangroove.

Let’s explore Playa Flamingo!
Playa Flamingo is a white sand gem located in-between Playa Potrero and Playa Brasilito. This beach is perfect for families who want a peaceful and relaxing environment for their session. With crystal clear waters and white sand, this is the ideal spot for some stunning family portraits.
