Sebastian Beach Family Portraits

Sebastian Beach in Lantzville is one of my absolute favorite places for family portrait sessions! The parking situation is always interesting but it’s worth it. If you’ve been there then I don’t have to tell you how amazing the view is or how it can entertain your family for hours with the tidal pools, sandstone rock formations, sandy beach, and wild animal appearances! Sea Lions, Seals, and Sea Otters are the most common sightings but I’ve heard of whale sighting as well!

Kids love Sebastian Beach as well! There’s lots of driftwood to walk on, big rocks to climb on, and lots of little rocks to throw into the water!

The view is unparalleled anywhere else on the island. You can see Notch Hill in Nanoose to the left, various islands across the straight, and a stellar view of the mountains to the right. It’s quite beautiful, and of course, makes an incredible bit of scenery for your portrait session.

The ocean is literally at your feet at this beautiful spot. The sandstone rock formations stretch to the right and drop off quite sharply with the water at its edge. In some spots if the wind is just right you can catch some spray from the waves coming up through the rocks! The color palette here is also fairly neutral, if not a touch cool, so it’s almost universally flattering for most skin tones and outfit colors 🙂

Scroll though the rest of the post and take a peek at this gorgeous family and their fall portrait session to see more about why Sebastian Beach is the perfect portrait session location for the beach and ocean loving family 🙂
