Now Booking 2018 Senior Portraits

Seasonal availability: May - September

Womens portraiture is my specialty.  It was a natural transition to apply some of these techniques to create beautiful age appropriate senior photos for women.  I offer a limited number of sessions for seniors looking for stylized fashion-inspired beach photography for their yearbook submissions.  Perfect for select seniors looking for photos that stand out from the crowd.  


Beaches are a wonderful setting for senior photos.  My special style of portraiture is sure to create images that will make you stand out from the rest.  My favorite places to shoot are South Seaside Park, Island Beach State Park, and Lavallette. but other area beaches can be used, as well.  


Sessions start with professional makeup (hair is an available option), posing guidance, outfit changes (if desired), and complete editing and retouching.

Session Details

Senior Portrait F.A.Q.

Where do you shoot these portraits?


I prefer to use Island Beach State Park, Lavallette, or South Seaside Park, however, if you have a favorite location that may be used as well.


What time will we take these portraits?


Typically, only evening after 6PM, except if we have a cloudy day, then perhaps we can start earlier.  The daytime light is too harsh.  We will start approximately 90 minutes before sunset.


Can I book my session date now?  I'll know we'll be in the area vacationing this summer...


Sure.  Although we can't pick a specific date, I can, however, get you on my calendar for dates you will be in the area.  When the time arrives we will pick the best available day for your session.  Please contact me with your vacation dates so I can get you on my calendar. Only a limited number of spots are available per week during summer.


Can I buy any digital copies of these photos?


Yes.  Full sized high res digitals can be purchased from which you can submit to your senior book and/or print your own photos as often as you would like. 


Do you work summer holidays and weekends?


I do not schedule beach sessions on summer holidays/holiday weekends.  There is a bit too much chaos. (Beach photos aren't cute with bunches of people in the background.)  Saturdays, likewise, are best avoided, if possible.  

What should I wear?


Your clothing should reflect you!  As in my womens portrait  sessions, I would avoid clothing with busy patterns, or prominent logos/slogans.  There are tons of senior photos ideas online these days on sites such as Pinterest,


We will only be in the area a short time, how can we review our photos and order prints?


Files are uploaded to an online proofing gallery where they can be viewed from anywhere you have internet access.  Prints can be purchased and shipped to your location from your gallery, as well.


Do I have to make a deposit?


Yes.  When booking greater than one week in advance a $75 nonrefundable retainer is paid upon booking. The balance is due before the date of your session.  This retainer goes toward paying your session fee, and booking of makeup artists.  There are only a limited number of sessions available each week, and the retainer secures your spot.  


When should I contact you?


Summer is short...the earlier the better.  I can start booking dates early spring for the summer season.  Again, due to the uncertainty of weather I only take limited sessions. 


What's the difference between family beach sessions and senior photos?  Why are beach photos less?


Beach photos do not include makeup services, retouching, or photo styling.  There is an increased amount of time and work in producing senior photos, as well as longer sessions, therefore production costs are higher.

Where do I change my clothes?


I have a portable changing tent which we bring along to the beach.   You may also turn your car into a dressing room!
