The Experience

01. the consult

Once you’ve officially reserved your date, we’ll set up a time to chat over the phone to go over the session in further detail. We’ll chat about what you’re hoping to capture in your photos…what is your main focus of the session? Grandparents playing with the kids? Your big kids going off to college? Your little one playing in the sand for the first time? Or just the love that you and your partner share?

I’ve specialized in family portraits on the beach for over 7 years and my goal is to capture the moments, activities, and locations most meaningful to you. We have some of most beautiful beaches and I’m always happy to recommend a location if you don’t have one in mind.

02. the wardrobe

Not sure what to wear? Don’t stress!

Prior to the session we’ll also chat about wardrobe ideas and I will help guide you in choosing the right outfits that will compliment your images. All clients are given access to my “What to Wear Guide” as well as my personalized help along the way.

I know the work that goes into planning a vacation, and I’ve put a lot of thought into making this experience as effortless and stress-free as possible for my clients. I am always available to help if needed.

03. the local secrets

If you are new to the area, you’re in for a treat – booking a session with me isn’t just all about the images! After vacationing down here for years, before we made the move to live here permanently, we found our favorites. From dining, recreational activities, fishing guides & sunset dolphin tours to our favorite spots for shelling and the local hidden gems.

I absolutely adore everything our area has to offer and I want nothing more than to share it with you. That means every client is given full access to an exclusive local area guide that I’ve put together to make your vacation even better!

04. the session

Your session will be fun. We will stroll the beach as the sun sets, splash in the water and play in the sand. Be prepared to get sandy, you are at the beach after all. And don’t be surprised if I ask you to walk in the waves and have a splash fight. I will always capture a few traditional poses of everyone looking, and then move on to capture the real moments – your connection with one another and your time together in this moment. There’s no need to worry if the kids don’t want to look at the camera and smile, we will play games to get those giggles to come out. I have a few tricks that work wonders for even the biggest grumpy pants.

I want to give you one-of-a-kind images that represent who you are as a family that you’ll be proud to be display in your home. We’ll bottle up your special vacation moments in a set of images to ensure that you’ll be taking home more than just memories from your vacation – tangible photographs that will be treasured for generations to come.

05. the images

Once your session is finished, you will receive a gallery of proofs to view. From there you will select your final images based on the collection you chose. If you just can’t live with out a few more, don’t worry, you can always add on more! Your images are then hand edited and delivered to you within two weeks.

You will have full access to download the final images as well as order any additional prints & products. Session albums are the number one seller. The perfect way to preserve your images in a heirloom product for years of enjoyment.
