Beach Session FAQ’s
How will you prep us for our beach photography session?
Will everyone cooperate? Will my kids be tired? Will I look fat? Prepping and planning for your photo session is the most important thing! Planning a photo session is stressful, especially if there are young children involved. I’ll work with you to make it stress-free and a completely seamless process by getting to know your family, arriving preparing and sending you several quick tips to prep your family.

How do you handle crazy kids that run away and just want to throw sand?
Crazy kids? Who has them? Your children have their own needs and as long as they are met before and during the session, they will be a blast on the beach. I take the time up front for them to feel comfortable with me and earn my trust so they are happy to participate in the session and find it truly a fun family time together.

What if my kids don’t cooperate?
Sometimes they don't and thats OK! I follow their lead and if a spot of pose isn't working we move on. If they are happy, I am happy. Before the session, please tell me all about your little ones so that I may be prepared with my favorite tricks and tools. Low key days and late afternoon naps are encouraged!

What time of day do you schedule the session?
Sessions start at the most beautiful time of day – the golden hour - either one hour before sunrise or sunset - This is non - negotiable.

How long will the session take?
For a standard family session – 5 subjects or less, the session will take 30 minutes.

What is the investment and what do we get?
The base cost for your session is $925. This includes the 30 minute session + 20 digital images. Additional digital images & unique products will be available after your session.

What if the weather doesn’t cooperate?
It does rain at the beach, unfortunately. The chances of it being a complete wash on the day of your session are slim. If the weather fails us, we will reschedule to Tuesday or another day that works for both of us.
