The Family Beach Photography Experience
What will you remember ????
. . . The giggles you hear when they run in the waves?
Their little toes covered in sugar white Florida sand?
The twinkle in their eyes and dimples in their cheeks?
What will you remember the most from your vacations as your family grows older?
The candid Images we capture, these spontaneous candid little moments frozen in time, joyous memories that will warm your family’s hearts for generations to come.
Please fill out our booking form so we can ensure to give you the best experience and service.
How much does it cost ?
Our Englewood, Manasota Beach, Boca Grande or Palm Island beach photography sessions are “all-inclusive”. That means the price you see below is all you are required to pay. We don’t believe in hidden charges, fine print, or complicated packages! You’ll pay $150 when you book your appointment, then we’ll charge the remaining balance when your pictures are ready for viewing and downloading.
The cost includes your time with the photographer during the “golden hour” at sunrise or sunset plus an UNLIMITED number of high resolution digital images (not just 20 or 35 like many other photographers give you). The majority of our clients receive over 100 pictures (sometimes lots more!). Your pictures will be available for viewing and downloading approximately 2 weeks after your session. Your online gallery will be available for a year. During that year, you can download them as many times as you need. You can create a Favorites Set which you can also share with family and friends.
$450 – Up to 5 people ( + $40 per extra person)
$1000 – 10 or more people
For groups of more than 20 people, we highly recommend scheduling 2 photographers in order to make sure each individual family gets what they want. Please email or call us for details.
The SESSION FEE ONLY COVERS THE CREATION OF YOUR IMAGES . The session fee DOES NOT INCLUDE USB Flash Drive OR PRINTS OR PRODUCTS. All prints and products are SOLD SEPARATELY from the session fee and can be ordered through your gallery a la carte.
The session fee is NON-REFUNDABLE and is due to book any session. All session fees are paid via an online invoice with a Credit Card at time of booking. Session Fee is transferable to another date within a year of originally booked date. I try my hardest to get sessions re-booked within the time you are in town for next.
Sessions are held anywhere between Boca Grande, Palm Island, Manasota Key, to Venice, FL.
**A minor travel fee is required for locations further than 15 miles from the Englewood Beach, FL city limits area, and/or if we have to obtain permits / pay for ferry charges.

Painted Art Portrait on Canvas
Thinking about asking one of our talented artists to paint an original custom portrait, as a special gift, or just for you?
The price of a portrait painting or portrait drawing depends upon its size and number of subjects (people, pets, size, art medium etc).
We aim to provide each client with a unique one-of-a-kind hand-painted or digitally portrait from your favorite photograph. We offer artworks in various mediums such as oil, pencil, charcoal, watercolor, pastels, colored pencil, and so on.
You can now get your own original handmade artwork for as low as $250 and up.
Any tips on what to wear ?
Your session time can allow for a few “wardrobe changes” so feel free to try out a few looks! But this depends on the number of people included in the session. This is something we will address during the pre-consultation. Please feel free to call to discuss options.
For family shots I would recommend a simple & similar overall tone. Nothing too busy like hawaiian shirts. I normally recommend solid summery light and airy colors, this is for your family, so please feel free to dress what fits your families personality.
Please take a few minutes to look around my blog for some great examples of colors & clothing styles. I also have a “What to Wear” board on Pinterest that has some great outfits & color combos that could help A LOT! PINTEREST LINK HERE
For newborns, natural organic color scheme works the best. Favorite blankets, diaper covers, and hats are also adorable. We have plenty of accessories too!
For toddlers and older children, solid colors and simple patterns are usually best but cool and trendy is fun too. Tutu’s and capes are also always welcome.
The most important tip: Be YOU and have FUN! This is your chance to bring out your inner fashionista or show your casual side. Simple and clean is splendid, fun and funky is fantastic. And of course shoes are completely optional.
***Note: I know clothing is a very important factor in determining the overall look of your portrait session. If you have any questions at ALL regarding clothing, I would be more than happy to assist ***
Do you have any Props ?
Yes, per request I can bring a wooden chair, basket, or boat for babies, small accessories such as sea shells, beach buckets & sail boats. Intended for newborn sessions and up to 1 year olds.
After you book with me, we will go over this part during the pre consultation.
Please make sure to requests these things as I don’t bring them automatically with me to every session.
