Whether this is your first family trip to the Delaware beaches, if you make this your yearly vacation, or if you are lucky enough to live here, having your family portraits made is an important beach To-Do!
We will begin your family memory session with formal, posed images. We may sit in the sand, on a blanket (that you’ll bring, if you’d like), or dip our toes in the water. After we’ve captured between two and three formal poses, we will use the remaining session for candids, where we will really get to document your family being family. Real, genuine smiles, tickles, and laughter will be heard all over the beach!
Your scheduled session will begin 45 minutes prior to sunset. (Please plan to arrive fifteen minutes before our scheduled time—It is crucial that everyone is ready on time. Sunsets don’t wait for those who are late!) This will allow us to achieve the best lighting for your family portraits. We will meet in our designated location and spend approximately 30-45 minutes photographing.
Lewes Beach (main parking lot),
Rehoboth Beach (boardwalk or near your vacation home),
Cape Henelopen (main parking lot)
Beach sessions are scheduled on Mondays and Wednesdays from March through November. A $100 non-refundable* deposit is required to reserve your session date. Your remaining package balance is due one week before your scheduled session date.
In the event of rain on a Monday session, your rain date will be Tuesday. Your rescheduled Wednesday session date will roll in to Thursday.
*If the entire week is a wash-out, you will be refunded your deposit and payment (but don’t count out rainy-day beach sessions! They can be just as fun–if not more fun!) Reschedules and cancellations will be at the determination of the photographer and will be called approximately two hours before the scheduled session. Many times it may look like rain, or shower just before the session. Then we receive the most beautiful sunsets! Canceling prematurely leaves us at risk of losing out on a gorgeous night. Cloudy and overcast days will not be rescheduled.
Once your session date is booked in, you will receive a Beach Prep Guide to help you plan for your evening. The document will include “What to Wear” guides, what to bring, and tips and tricks for the night. The most important part to take from the guide and your session? Is to have F.U.N!
After your session, I will begin working on your images. Each image will be edited to bring out a pop of color, all while maintaining the integrity and “trueness” of the image.
You will receive your full gallery (emailed to the contact that I have on file) within 2 weeks to share with family and friends. Your gallery will be “live” and available for unlimited downloads for two weeks after your gallery is shared with you. Your canvas selection will be due one week after receiving your gallery.
