Newport Beach Pier – Family Portrait Photographer
This is one of our favorite Newport Beach Pier sessions! We have loved photographing this family over the years and consider them some of our best friends! Tara is Jennifer’s favorite hair stylist and she even cuts our boy’s hair!
The Historic Newport Beach Pier
The Newport Beach Pier is a local favorite when it comes to rustic wooden piers in OC. The original Newport Beach pier was constructed in 1888 and was later rebuilt after a storm in the 1940’s. This area is somewhat of a tourist destination in the summer so plan on arriving early if you want a parking spot! There are many historic buildings right next to the pier. We love to grab a Sea Side Donut or a corn dog from Jane’s with the kiddos. There are many great restaurants in this area so be sure to plan on eating after your session!
Best Time To Visit the Newport Beach Pier
The fall and winter seasons are the best time to take photos at the Newport Beach Pier. Many families travel here for their summer vacation and want a portrait here, but the crowds make it a challenge. If you are planning a summer family portrait photo, mornings are best. If you have your heart set on a sunset photo, be ready to battle the beach goers, photographers, and other families with your same idea!
