The color temperature should be between 5000K to 6500K to mimic daylight. The temperature is mostly mentioned on the box of the bulb.

Use Some Props
With proper lighting and a beautiful backdrop, use some costumes, pool floats, toys to make it more interesting and fun. Also, you can get some animal masks or jewelry and sunglasses. Add anything that looks unique and weird to make it better.
