Smith Rock is one of my favorite places for family photos, but it can be difficult to keep everyone happy. Kids usually get tired of posing for photos after about 40 minutes. If you plan on going here, have a plan on how to keep them happy. You may also need an extended session to give them breaks.
Pros: Beautiful backdrops!
Cons: Can take a long time to get to, especially if you are hiking in. These sessions can be long for kids. Any amount of hiking can ruin makeup and hair.
Prop to bring: Not much if you plan on moving around a bit to get the great backdrops.
Colors to avoid wearing: Too many patterns. Too many patterns can distract from your face and the backdrop.
