Sweet & Simple Photo Session includes up to 6 people (If your group has more than 8 people I do recommend booking The Works session).

Beach portrait sessions book very fast for the Summer or “In Season” dates (March to September). It is recommended that you book your session once you book your vacation dates.

I am available any day of the week, but weekends fill up quickly so the sooner you reserve your spot the better. If you are interested in holiday cards, announcements, invitations, albums, etc., please let me know & allow for four weeks between the session date and delivery.

The session fee is NON-REFUNDABLE & due to book any session. All session fees are paid via my online store with a Credit Card at time of booking. Session Fee is transferable to another date within a year of originally booked date. I try my hardest to get sessions re-booked within the time you are in town. This is why I need a good cell number to call you at while you are in town, just in case we need to rearrange our session.

If you do not purchase the digital files at the time of booking, then you must purchase the digital files or make the minimum purchase within 30 days of receiving access to your online gallery. If one of those purchases is not make within 30 days of receiving access to the gallery then the images will be deleted.

Sweet & Simple Beach Sessions will ONLY take place at my preferred BEACH location in Destin on Old 98 near Capt Dave’s On the Gulf. On occasion I will suggest we move the session to another location because of surf or seaweed. This is another reason I need to have a good cell phone number for you so that I may reach you while you are in town. I have some great beach locations in Destin, Santa Rosa Beach & the 30A area.

The Works Session can take place at my location, your location or multiple locations.

NON Beach Sessions – When booking the session we will discuss locations that are available

Newborn Sessions – Are done on location only. I live about 20 feet from the water’s edge so if you would like to take some of them on the beach please let me know. I LOVE taking babies out to the beach!

I only shoot on the beach at Sunrise or just before Sunset. The actual time of the session will depend on the time of the year you will be here. Please email for exact times.

These times are to maximize the use of natural light. These times are the best times of the day to take photos on the beach. We are limited due to the very BRIGHT and HOT sun that reflects off the water and white sand. Doing sessions on the beach at any other times during the day would cause very bright photos and ALOT of squinting.

NON Beach Session are available at numerous times during the day. The exact time will depend on the location and schedule.

Your session time can allow for a few “wardrobe changes” so feel free to try out a few looks! This depends on the number of people included in the session. Please feel free to call to discuss options.

For newborns, “birthday suits” are best. Favorite blankets, diaper covers, and hats are adorable.

For toddlers and older children, solid colors and simple patterns are usually best but cool and trendy is fun too. Tutu’s and capes are also always welcome.

For family shots I would recommend a simple & similar overall tone. I normally prefer solid colors to stripes & plaids, this is for your family, do what fits your families personality.

Please take a few minutes to look around my blog for some great examples of colors & clothing styles. I also have a “What to Wear” board on Pinterest that has some great outfits & color combos that could help ALOT! Pinterest Link

The most important tip: Be YOU and have FUN! This is your chance to bring out your inner fashionista or show your casual side. Simple and clean is splendid, fun and funky is fantastic. And of course shoes are completely optional.

***Note: I know clothing is a very important factor in determining the overall look of your portrait session. If you have any questions at ALL regarding clothing, I would be more than happy to discuss your different options and my preferences with you.

If we are shooting on the beach PLEASE remember that its ALWAYS windy on the beach. I STRONGLY suggest leaving hair & make-up to the pros. They are used to the beach wind & humidity and not to mention its a great excuse to get a little bit of pampering before the session.

I personally LOVE all of the stylist at Pure & Couture. Dani has personally done my hair & make-up many times & for many years now.

Her contact info is 850-716-5801 and the Salon Number is 850-424-3935

Ideally, a well rested, well fed, happy child. Since we know that doesn’t always happen as planned, feel free to bring some snacks and a few of your child’s favorite things to help them feel comfortable and enjoy our play date.Pets, lollies, loveys, tutus, capes, umbrellas, instruments – whatever makes you and them happy. Same goes for seniors and adults!

Yes, I have a wooden Adirondack chair for small children, sea shells, beach buckets & sail boats that I can bring. I also have a smaller props like a sail boat or buckets for newborns up to 1 year olds. These are props they can sit in.

Please make sure to requests these things as I don’t bring them with me to every session.

We understand that unexpected things come up especially when you have children. If you need to reschedule, please call us as soon as possible. If your child is unusually cranky or sick, it is better to go ahead and reschedule your session. The session fee can be transferred towards another session on another date as long as you re-book within 12 months from your original appointment time as schedule allows.

Shhhhh we don’t say that word around here it’s always sunny in Florida!

It’s a less than 90% chance of rain at the location we will wait till just before session to see if it’s actually raining. If it’s a 100% chance of rain I still wait till 2-3 hours before the session before calling it off. I have had MANY MANY times that we have called off the session at Noon and then at 5-6pm it was gorgeous on the beach and raining inland. If it does happen to be raining during your session we will figure out the next best time for both of our schedules before you leave to go home. That may mean getting up at sunrise (I know that is usually VERY early but it’s gorgeous & cooler than sunset).

If for some reason we can not reschedule during this visit your session fee is transferable to another date within a year of our original date scheduled.

After your session the images will be color corrected, brightness adjusted & have editing. If you have a scratch or “boo boo” on your face I will try to edit that on the close ups.

I will NOT photoshop your hair in every photo to make it look like you’re not on the beach…There is wind and I’ll try to position you in the best possible way to avoid crazy hair. I will not make your tan lines disappear, if you know you are having photos made pick out a shirt that doesn’t show them OR wear a different bathing suit.

BUT if you order a photo from me to be printed I WILL tweak it for you. If you want smoother skin, to shave off a FEW inches, erase a few fly-aways I CAN AND WILL DO THAT but there is an additional charge PER photo to do additional editing. The cost will all depend on what you would like done & to how many images. If you are interested in additional editing send me an email with lots of details & I will let you know the cost of editing before the work is done.

Just remember to let me know before you put in your order!

In 4-6 weeks (during my busy season), your images will be available for viewing, ordering & sharing in a private, personalized & password protected online gallery. Feel free to share your password with family and friends so they may also view. There will be a mixture of color & black/white photos within the online gallery.
