FAQ's

Should I book?

Please check out the images on my website. I want you to love my style before booking your session. My sessions are bold, bright, and colorful. Hopefully there are gorgeous skies during your session but this can not be guaranteed and I DO NOT add fake skies in post processing. 

Sunrise or Sunset?

Sunrise!!!! No really they are both equally gorgeous here on the beach I just have a special love for sunrise sessions.  I know that kids get tired in the evenings after long beach days that's why I offer my favorite sunrise sessions. Generally not always kids are happy when they wake up, have some food or snack because sunrise is so early and come out to the beach before they have had the chance to get sunburned, tired, and worn out for the day. It's also not as hot, the beach isn't crowded, and generally less windy in the morning. All that said if you know your family aren't early risers sunset is also amazing. If you have a little one that is normally asleep at the sunset session time I suggest giving them a later nap on the day of your session. 

What to wear?

After booking I will send you a what to wear guide. Choose clothing that compliments your body and colors for your family that go together but you do not have to be completely matching (everyone in white and khaki although that is a timeless look if that is what you are going for.) I suggest not wearing black, neon colors, or anything with large logos or prints.

What to expect?

I want you to have realistic expectations during your session. We will take both posed and candid shots these are sometimes my favorite. Remember most children are excited to be at the beach they want to run and play. I want everyone to have fun at there session so we will have tons of play time at the end. Everyone will get sandy and you may even get wet. Bring extra clothing and a towel to your session.

Editing and photoshop is it magic?

Most people expect that everything can be fixed in photoshop. While it is quite magic and I am sure it can I want to go over what I offer so that you can know what to expect from your images. I DO NOT add fake skies to my images which is why I book at sunrise and sunset. It is also why I am very specific about session start times. Also remember the beach can be windy so please keep that in mind when getting ready for your session. It isn't to hard to remove a hair from the forehead, but if they are covering your eyes that is not something I will be able to fix. You will notice that I will try and have you fix those things during your session so we don't encounter this issue, but wind happens sometimes and we just have to work about best around it.  I do edit every single image that I send to you. If i need to I can do head swaps but only with an image from the same set of shots. I can not take one persons picture from the start of the sessions and put it on one from the end of the session. Please have reasonable exceptions when it come to photoshop. I am not magic and can do some tweaking here and there but remember at the end of the session you still want to look like you! You will remember when you look back later at your child's goofy smile that that was who they were at that age. I can not say this enough. Dress to flatter your body. If you would like to request additional edits after viewing your images please email me to discuss. I want you to be happy but the key to this is BE REASONABLE I can not go over every single image and make you someone you are not. 

When will I get my pictures?

My turn around time is generally 2 weeks. I can not guarantee this during the busy season but I will try my best. 

How will I receive my pictures?

Photos are sent to you via digital download. You will recieve a print release with no restrictions on printing. You may print as many and any sizes as you would like. You will also be able to showcase your images online.
