How to Get the Best Photographs of your Summer Outfits

Summer is finally right around the corner, and I am very excited for all the moments at the beach, or by the pool, wearing cute bathing suits while sipping refreshing cocktails! Summer is my favorite season, and my best pictures were taken in a sunny scenery, so today I want to give you some tips of how to get the best summer memories through pictures.

First tip: Colors! Everyone knows how colorful summer is and if you have colorful items in your pictures - bathing suits, accessories, fruits, popsicles, floats, etc. Your photo will automatically represent the warmth and fun of the summer

But if you are not a big fan of colorful, and you want your pictures to represent a glam chic summer, go for black bathing suits and a pair of a statement sunglasses.

Besides sunglasses, big hats and body jewelry are also great accessories because they not only look fab, but they are also good to distract the viewers attention from some parts of our bodies that we rather not give much attention in the picture.  

Speaking of sunglasses, be bold and experiment!

And I guess my biggest tip is to not worry so much about how the picture is going to come out, but to enjoy while taking them! Enjoy the sun and go explore this beautiful world we live in! Run, jump, swim, go to parties, try new foods, drink ice cold drinks, and just photograph along the way! 

My next summer destination is South Beach and I am so excited and I can not wait to share the pictures with you! Stay tuned!

One last tip: there are a bunch of photography waterproof devices now in the market, and I think you will enjoy taking some pictures under the water! At least that's one of the things I am looking forward to do this summer!:
