Capturing beautiful family beach portraits in Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach, Ormond Beach, Ponce Inlet, and all areas in between!  Grab your family, give me a shout, and let’s go grab some beautiful images for everyone to look back on for years!  (Your session can be captured in full HD as well if you like – how cool is that?!)

Beach Portraits

I absolutely love shooting family portraits on the beach.  I’ve worked with families taking beach portraits in Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, New Smyrna Beach, Ponce Inlet, and all areas in between.  We have some of the most beautiful beaches here in the area, and I would love to work with you and your family on the sand!  Most families would like to have the high resolution images from these sessions and I’m right there with ya!  The package that I offer gives you exactly that.  In addition to full printing rights to the photos, you’ll also receive beautifully, professionally edited images from your session (see samples images below).  I’m also the only photographer in the area to capture your session in full HD if you would like.  Many families in the past have enjoyed this and you can check out some examples on my video page or right below!

One of my favorite images with you on the beach

I love working with families on the beach and there is one particular shot that I love to do with each family, Senior, couple, etc. that I work with on the beach.  What is that shot you ask?  Ahhh …. click on the image (to the right or below) and a video will pop up describing it!  Grab your family together and give me a call!  Let’s go have some fun!

All Sessions Receive

High Resolution Images

Each session receives high resolution images, allowing you to print everything from wallets to poster size.  I strongly recommend that you print your images through an online service such as Shutterfly, Snapfish, or MPix.  Images from Walgreens, WalMart, etc. are not high quality printers and tend to print extremely dark.

Beach Portrait Pricing

A $50.00 deposit is required to book your session with me (this also counts as the session fee).  It can be purchased below, safely and securely on my website and the remaining balance (i.e. $199.00 + tax for the high resolution images) is due after the session is complete. You won’t find a better deal in the Daytona Beach area!  :-)

  • Beach Portrait Package – $50.00 deposit to book with me (session fee and editing afterwards) + $199.00 for approximately 30 high resolution images from the session
  • 1 hour on location with you and your family. There are several locations that I enjoy shooting at or I have no problem coming to you if you have a larger group or if that would be more convenient.
  • 30 high resolution images from your session, professionally edited. The images themselves will be stored online for you to download immediately and this will allow you to print everything from wallets to poster size prints.
  • Images will be available via download and this will allow you to print everything from wallets to poster size prints.
  • Each image individually inspected for color and exposure correction if needed

Frequently Asked Questions

How do we go about booking you for our family portraits on the beach and how is the remainder paid?

If you click down below, you will see where it states that you can “Pay Your Deposit Securely Online” and this will take you to the shopping cart area where you can finish your transaction.  My website is SSL enabled, so the first part of the transaction will be secure and you’ll be transferred securely to PayPal to finish the remaining portion.  Once I have your deposit, you’ll be locked in with me for that evening at the beach and I’ll follow up with you regarding meeting location and time.  Then, the fun begins from there!  (Note: Payment for the 1 hour time frame is due after the session is complete.  You can pay by cash or credit card directly from my website utilizing your phone or my phone/tablet that will be with me at the time).

How soon will we see the images?

Most sessions are finished within a week. However, during peak times (i.e. in the middle of the summer – it may take up to 3 weeks to receive them). I’ll have images online from that evening or the next day on my Facebook, Instagram and website, if that’s ok with you.  Once the images are finished and uploaded, I will provide you with a digital download link to your images for you to download immediately.

How do we receive our images?

When your images are complete, I will upload them immediately to Dropbox for you to download.  This way, this method will allow all of your family members to pull the images down right away when they are ready.  I no longer mail out media as I’ve had too many problems in the past with CDs getting lost in the mail, scratched, etc.  Everything is available via download, making it easy and convenient for you!

How many people can be in the session?

My session pricing is for 10 family members or less (this is accounting for Grandparents being there, etc).  Although an “unlimited” group size was allowed in previous years, due to the extra time it takes for editing there will be a charge for groups larger than ten.  Thank you for your understanding.

You mentioned video, can you explain more on that?

Sure thing.  I love to shoot and work with video, simple as that.  During the session, as we move from location to location on the beach, each of these moments can also be captured on video, in full HD.  It’s a great bonus to have, in addition to your images, that you can take with you and view over and over again!  Once I have finished editing your video, along with your completed images (which will be completed first) – I will upload the file to Dropbox (so you can download it immediately) as well as mail you a personalized DVD of your session.  The cost of this is 50.00 (this is time to edit the video, DVD disc and case printing, and authoring the DVD).

What should I wear?

Great question!  Many families come in khakis and a white shirt.  I’ve had others come in jeans and a matching shirt (white, blue, etc).  Honestly, it’s really up to you and whatever makes you feel most comfortable.  Matching outfits of similar color really flow well in the photos – but again, it’s up to you in terms of what you would like to wear.  Also, feel free to bring any additional items or props that have meaning to you – and we’ll definitely make sure those are in your photos also!

Can we do a morning or afternoon beach session with you?

No. For your images to be the best quality that they can be, near or close to sunset is the ideal time to take beach portraits.  Any other time besides this and we’ll be fighting harsh lighting, hard shadows, etc.  I can get around this with flash and off camera lighting, however, I no longer do beach sessions except in the late afternoon / early evening.
