Curious how your photo session will flow? I feel you!
First, every session begins with us getting to know each other. We’ll chat for a few minutes before I even take out my camera. I want to know a bit about you, which really helps us connect and helps you relax before I start taking photos. I’m not a robot, so I need a bit of human connection to truly create magic for you! If you’re feeling anxious to get started while we chat, just know this “talk story” time is a very important part of your session! This time is essential to capturing real people and real stories.
Next, we’ll start taking photos! Where and how we start doing this depends on the light, how busy/not busy the beach is and the location we’re at. I have a loose formula in my head, but there’s always room for flexibility. We’ll also have talked about our session plan so as I’m working, you’ll know exactly the plan and you’ll know we’re getting all the shots that are important to you!
Towards the end of your session, and if the water is looking safe and calm, I’ll ask if you want to hop in the ocean. And I hope you do! At the very least, get your feet wet and enjoy the cool ocean on a hot night. These are my favorite pictures. I take many steps back and allow you to enjoy the water without me there to direct. I love watching people catch the last few minutes of the sunset.
And that’s it! The hard part (for you!) is all done and then I get to work to edit your gorgeous photos. This process takes 2-3 weeks as each of your images is fully edited in my specific style.
