How should we dress for our beach photo session ?

We recommend white shirts and kaki pants,  white shirts and blue pants, white shirts and blue jeans, Light blue shirts and blue pants or brown and white
Girls can also ware a white dress if they like.
Shorts are also a good idea.
Small children should be dressed to match the adults.​

Can or should we bring props ?

Yes props are a great idea for adults and kids.
Some examples would be Fun hats, Play sand bucket and shovel, Sunglasses, Fishing poles, Cigars, Toys, and for the kids you can dress them up in different costumes if you want for some photos.

Will we get wet ?

This will be up to you. Many times at the end of the photo session if you are willing to jump in and get wet we can take a lot of fun in the water photos.

How many photos do you take ?

We will take a lot of photos to make sure we have what we need and everyone has their eyes open in the photos.
We do not have a set amount that we take each session is unique and some sessions have many more people in them so we end up taking more photos as needed.

Can you post our photos in an on-line photo gallery?

Yes that is included. A On-line photo gallery for 30 days

What if it rains on the day we have set up for our session ?

This does happen from time to time.
If your photo session is rained out we will set it up for the next day if we can so please try to set up your session a few days before you are going to be going home so we have a few days to keep trying.
Also it may rain only part of the day and we can still take the photos after the rain at sunset.

In the event we are unable to take your photos do to bad weather we will refund you back the full session fee you have paid us with no delay.

What is your refund policy?

This is very simple. Once you book and pay the session retainer fee we are going to turn down everyone else that calls for that time slot and date so we do not offer any refund for a cancellation as we have turned down other people who wanted your time and date.

You are paying us a retainer fee to hold the date for your photo session.
The retainer fee is non-refundible.

We will move your session to another date if you like as long as the date is still open for up to one year.

We will refund back your retainer session fee if we can not preform the job do to equipment problems (Has never happened we have backup equipment)
If we for some reason break down on the way to the job and can not take the photos.
If its raining at the time of your session and we can not take the photos and can not set up a new time to take them.

Can we have our photo session at another location other then the beach?

Yes many times its a good idea to have your photo session at a different location other then the beach.
We can meet you at a park, Beach house, inland home or just about anywhere on the coast.
