A little preparation before your portrait session can make a world of difference.


Appointments should be made in advance as we often get fully booked from May - September.

Selecting an evening early in your stay, may allow us to reschedule your session if rain prevails.

The best clothing choices are white/kahaki, black/ khaki, pastels, and neutral tones. Bold colors, stripes and plaids can be distracting. Plan to be "coordinated" with all members of your group.

Shorts or pants look great for gentlemen and boys. Long-sleeved, solid color shirts are also attractive. Men should also shave several hours prior to the photo session.



For ladies and girls, capris and longer skirts are strongly recommended and work better for a variety of poses. Mini-skirts and shorts will limit our ability for additional posing.

Young children should have naps. If possible, wake them gently with time to return from dreamland before being introduced to the beach.
Remember a quick snack, if dinner time is near.
Infants and very young children may have a special toy or blanket. Please bring these with you.

Please remember, personal cameras are not allowed until after your session is completed.
