When is the best time to book a session?
It depends on what kind of photographs you want! Typically families will opt for a sunset session. We begin about 45minutes before the sun sets to get some beautiful lighting and less people on the beach.
If you want bright, airy photographs you can opt for a morning session (sunrise!) Sometimes this works well for families with smaller children who are at their best in the morning when they just wake up.
How many photos do I get?
Photo quantities are listed in the package section of my website. I offer 35+ images for each package but always include the best shots even if we are above the number 35.
What do we wear?
I always tell families to coordinate rather than match. It's better to have everyone wear something they feel comfortable in so the chances of smiling increase! Pinterest has some great ideas for coordinating colors. Cool tones are my favorite, blues, khaki, sea foam, light pink all photograph beautifully!
Is the beach your only location?
I have MANY location spots around Sarasota that are beautiful. Many families choose the beach because we are America's #1 Beach. For my local families or families who want something different, I will send a list of location ideas once their session date is secured.
How do we pay you?
Everything is payable online. Simple!!
Upon booking I send a PayPal link for a 50% deposit. Once this is paid your session will be scheduled in the calendar. $50 of this deposit is considered a retainer fee for scheduling purposes and is non-refundable.
A few days before your session I will send another link for the remaining balance. You can pay this before / on the day of your shoot.
(Optional: Let me know if you'd like to pay everything up front - many people choose this option to get the payments out of the way!)
