What to expect.

Step 1

Pre-Session ConsulT

Preplanning can take a photoshoot to the next level. As your photographer, understanding your overall vision is essential to making that happen. Not sure what that vision looks like, don't worry, we can collaborate to get you there. Consultations take place via phone, Zoom, or in-person meeting. In a 20-30 minute window of time, we will discuss vision, wardrobe choice, and overall shoot plan. Missing a little something to make your outfit pop? As an added bonus, you will be granted access to use any item in our extensive studio wardrobe. Let’s just say it’s like playing dress-up at its best.

Step 2

Photo Session

We have secured a beautiful Oak Island beach home as our base location. Upon arrival, we will review your wardrobe and shoot plan as we move you immediately into hair & makeup so we can get you camera ready. Once hair & makeup is complete we will move to the beach where your guide photoshoot will begin. You will have up to three wardrobe changes. Our entire team will be present to assist you every step of the way. Although the photoshoot plan is well put together, trust me there will be so much fun to be had throughout the entire experience. Beach Portrait experience is an up to 4 hours session. Upon the conclusion of the shoot, the next time we meet will be via Zoom for your photo reveal.

What if I like more than 30 images included in the Beach Portrait package, can I buy more?

Absolutely!!! Although there is no expectation to purchase additional images, additional images are sold for $250 individually or in a set of five for $300.

Not sure what to wear?

No worries, we have you covered. We will discuss wardrobe at our preplanning consultation meeting. You are in great hands. Our team will make sure you will be camera ready.

Can I include my family?

Although the intention of the Beach Portrait session is for my female clientele, yes you can absolutely include your family in a portion of the session. Hair & make up is reserved for you. Should we need an additional hair & makeup services, it will cost an additional $200 for each person and we would need to adjust the start time so we can ensure to have adequate time on the beach. Please note that family photo sessions are not my area of expertise but happy to accommodate if this is important to you.

Can we add a boudoir set into the session?

Yes absolutely for an individual client, not a couple session. In this circumstance we will begin the session with boudoir at the airbnb location and transition to the beach session for beauty portraits.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, we offer short term scheduled payment options for up to 90 days. Please note that product or images will not be delivered until payment is made in full. Please understand that we are a small business and we must have payment in full in order to fulfill our orders. Once payment is made in full we will send images to album vendor for order completion. To secure payment plan option a specified amount will be due weekly or biweekly payment options until payment is made in full.

What if I need to reschedule?

This is a special destination shoot option. Deposits to hold your session date are nonrefundable. Understandably, we hire in advance hair and makeup artists, on top of incurring other costs and expenses to hold a session. Rescheduling is not an option in this scenario. An additional deposit will be required to book a future session.
