I Offer Two Options for Sessions while you are here on Vacation.

Both Sessions are available at all locations

Traditional Beach Sessions will be 60 minutes to a Two Hours.
Large Families and Reunions I block off up to 2 Hours.
I normally have 200-400 images for you to proof.
The Traditional Sessions: With the traditional sessions the prints you purchase are of the best quality and printed only at a Professional Photo Lab. I also personally edit all of these selections to remove such imperfections as fine lines, blemishes, facial glare, whiten teeth, remove people in the background etc. I will also include one major retouch free of charge, an example of this would be head swaps. Sometimes it's impossible to get several people all looking, smiling and the expression you love, easy answer........head swaps. I'm not talking about putting Jennifer Aniston's head on a body of your family member!!LOL, but using the same person's head you like better from a similar image. It's really a great way to get the perfect picture!!
$25.00 deposit due, refunded if bad weather prevents us from session during your stay.
*Traditional Sessions include a Free 8x10 when order is placed within 2 weeks.*

Digital Beach Sessions In most cases your images can now be sent to you via digital download. They are high resolution files and I find this speeds up the delivery as compared to mailing CD's. Time is limited to 45-60 minute Sessions, but more time is added for larger groups.
When opting for this type session please understand even though these are the exact same images I would use to have prints made the print quality can be huge if you don't have access to a professional photo lab.
You get all the images from the session (normally 200-400) all edited for color and exposure corrections. Packages below go by # of people in group.
I then offer editing packages which can be added to the Base Packages (they include in-depth and major edits see descriptions below)
1. In-depth edits minimizing facial lines, smoothing skin, removing blemishes, age spots, teeth whiten, dark circles under eyes, reducing redness to faces, people in the background.
2. Major Edit: all the above plus: Head swaps, glass glare, facial glare, brace removal, digital diet, body swaps, background swaps.

Additional Editing Packages, these can be added to any base package before or after your session. You still get all the images from the session these are edits above and beyond the color/exposure corrections. You may split the edits between family members or you may add the package to just your family. This works great when family members have different tastes on how much editing they like to be done.
Editing Package 1: $25.00 includes 5 indepth edited images.
Editing Package 2: $35.00 5 indepth edited and 1 major edit.
Editng Package 3: $40.00 10 in depth edited images

Please allow 2-3 weeks turnaround from the time you give me your selections.
You Do NOT pay the $65.00 traditional session fee in addition to Digital session options
Many photography sites in the area now offer digital sessions, make sure when comparing you find out what they include with edited images. Many will say they are all edited making it sound like all the images are retouched as extensively as my in-depth edited. The special details for this is more time consuming then just fixing the color, exposure and contrast so just make sure you have clarified this. Whether you choose me or someone else I just want you to have all your facts, especially when this will be something you will see for many years to come.
$50.00 deposit due, refunded if bad weather prevents us from session during your stay.
Session times can change slightly depending on the sky conditions of the day. Overcast skies make it get darker a bit earlier. I can normally determine around 2:00PM the day of the session if the time will need to be adjusted. Please be flexible with the time on the date of the session.
