The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination, and brings eternal joy to the soul.
— Robert Wyland

Florida's gorgeous beaches provide a perfect backdrop for your family photos! We have so many beautiful beaches to choose from in Vero Beach and in the surrounding areas.


The One Hour Beach Sessions are a mixture of traditional portraits and lifestyle, documentary images. These sessions are very relaxed, and I want your family to be comfortable and to have fun. Think of it as hanging out with your favorite people, and having your new friend (me!) along to make lasting, special photos for you to hang on your walls, give to your loved ones, and use as Christmas cards.


The best time for soft, natural light is about an hour before sunset.  Come barefooted, leave your sunglasses at home (so your eyes will adjust to the light - we don't want squinting), and make sure everyone has had a chance to use a restroom. Have a bite to eat beforehand, or a bring a picnic basket with you. Before your session we'll talk about choosing a favorite activity for our session, maybe flying a kite, kicking a ball, playing with beach toys, or even getting in the water with boogie or skim boards.


We'll start by getting some portraits of everyone together, then I will let your family interact and play together, while I document the sweet and fun moments. If necessary, I can direct your family some, too.


Toward the end of your session I will usually ask everyone to come together for a few more group pictures. By then everyone is very relaxed, and usually quite sandy and wet, too, and these photos often end up being the favorites.


Fall 2017 pricing for One Hour Beach Sessions start at $500.

Individual portraits can be added to your beach session, as well. When booking your Beach Session, please let me know if this is something you're interested in. With larger families we might need to extend to two hours to allow for unhurried sessions.

Whether you are on vacation in Florida or live near the beach, please contact me to book your family’s Beach Session!
