beach sessions

"The Sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever". - Jacques Cousteau

Whether you are lucky enough to live on the Emerald Coast or are visiting on vacation, there's no denying that the beach is a great place to be photographed.

Our beautiful white sand beaches and amazing sunsets provide a great backdrop for families, couples, kids, and seniors. We've even photographed a few surprise engagements on the beach!

If you decide to work with me, we'll talk in person, via phone or on email to plan your perfect session - location, colors & outfits, groupings, props, and all the details.

The collections

The Deluxe Session is our signature service, and is perfect if you want all of the final edited images from your session (50+) as well as a collection of 4x6 reference prints. The session runs an hour or so, which gives us plenty of time for outfit changes, as well as getting both posed and natural images.

Summer weekday sessions book up fairly quickly, as I take only a limited number of beach sessions each week. Once you've booked your stay, you should contact me for availability and to get on my calendar. That being said, even if it's last minute I may be able to fit you in, so get in touch!

Once you are ready to book, we'll speak in person, over the phone or via email to plan the details of your session, including colors and clothing selections, groupings, etc.

You'll receive a link to a private Client Portal with a What to Wear Guide, prep guide, location galleries, and more.

We have a collection of props we bring depending on the ages of children participating - seashells, starfish, pails, boats (even a big one to sit in!), blankets and buckets. You are welcome to bring anything else you'd like to include - just give me a heads-up!

My hope is that you'll love your images from our session! Each session comes with a selection of edited digital images (10, 20 or all). If you choose the 10 or 20 image session, you can add images for $15 each or 10 for $125. I don't ever release RAW or unedited images.

Yes, every session comes with a selection of your favorite images along with a print release allowing you to make prints, canvases, announcements, etc. I have suggestions for better consumer labs in your print release. You can also order products directly through me and my professional lab to ensure the highest quality.

I schedule all beach sessions for either sunrise or about an hour or so before sunset. To get the beautiful colors of our skies and to avoid the harsh overhead shadows, these times work best. I know getting up and ready for a sunrise session (especially while on vacation!) can be rough, I promise it is worth it!

I am always keeping an eye on the weather, and if it looks like there is a good chance of rain during your session I'll reach out to discuss the options. The options often include changing locations, moving the session to the next morning or evening (if I have it available), or in rare instances, canceling the session. Living on the coast, the weather frequently changes, and even if it's raining on Pensacola Beach, it may only be overcast on Navarre Beach. Overcast skies are not a reason to cancel a beach session - we like cloudy and overcast!
