What's included?

All sessions include an online gallery on my website, which you can access through the Client Gallery Access section. There you can view and download your photos. Prints and specialty items are not included in the base prices, but you can order them easily and at very reasonable prices from your online gallery (fulfilled by Mpix and delivered to your door). If requested, I can also provide a flash drive or disc with the images. A print release is also provided so you can have them printed wherever you choose.

Expectations
The beach is almost always windy. I do my best to position you so the wind is not blowing in your face. If you are very concerned about wind, I'd recommend Huntington Beach State Park or Myrtle Beach State park. In addition to the beach, they have greenery areas for photos that are less windy.
 

 

FAQ's

What happens if it rains on my session date?

Myrtle Beach weather changes very quickly! I can't tell you how many times rain has been predicted on a session day but has passed before our scheduled time. This is why I don't cancel or reschedule until the day of the session (or the day before for morning sessions). If bad weather is likely at our scheduled time, I will make every effort to reschedule to a time & date that works for everyone. I always leave a few days open every week to allow for rescheduling. No additional fees will be charged for rescheduling. If no other date is possible to reschedule, no cancellation fee will apply because of bad weather and your retainer will be refunded.

 

Where can I have my session?

I've created a Location Guide with many options! There are several spots along the coast of Myrtle Beach that I use often. Check out the photos I've taken at each spot and the Google Maps pins in the Location Guide to help you decide.
 

How many photos will I receive?

For 1 hour sessions, I include all the good images I take. For seniors, couples & small families, this will typically be 35+ pictures. For larger sessions with 10+ people, it may be as many as 80+ images because of the different groupings we include.

For Mini Sessions, you get 15 images included in the package with the ability to purchase more for $10 each.

 

How long will it take to get my pictures?

For 1 hour sessions, it generally takes about 3-5 weeks for me to select, edit, upload & deliver your full gallery. Larger families with 10+ people take a bit longer than smaller families and couples. I know you're anxious to see the photos right away, so I always send sneak peaks within a week of your session with at least 10 photos!

For Mini Sessions, I send lightly edited proofs within 3-5 days of your session for you to choose your favorites. Then, I go into more detailed editing on your selections to fine tune the images. I will send the final pictures 1-2 weeks after you choose your favorites.

 

How can I pay?

Pretty much any way you'd like! I can accept credit/debit cards in person or online, Venmo, Google Pay, cash, or check.
