Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the best time for a beach portrait session?

The best time for a beach portrait session is either at sunrise or sunset. The sunlight at these hours create a soft ambient light that is flattering and brings out beautiful colors in the sky.

How far in advance should I book a session?

Clients typically book with me a few weeks to a few months out from their session. In the summer months, when demand is greater, it's better to book well in advance.

Can I book a beach portrait session alone or with my friends?

Absolutely! These portrait sessions on the beach are great for friends, couples, or even just yourself too!

Do you have a place for me to change?

Yes! I can bring a portable changing tent with my to my location shoots. Please let me know in advance if you need it on location.
