Don’t let another year pass by.

Benefits of a Short & Sweet Photography Experience with Heather

  •  Truly a short and sweet photography experience – painless from beginning to end
  • High-quality results with an experienced & professional beach photographer
  • Structured around those little people (and some big people) in your life. Ya know, the ones who only last 5 minutes or so before they want to run free (we’ll capture that too)
  • 2019 marks year 6 of the Short and Sweet Beach Photography Sessions aka a lot of experience with hundreds of families.
  • Real life family art that will capture your family as they are now, in 2019.

Why this year? Because the rest of the time isn’t a guarantee. 

“Heather thank you for such an amazing experience and photos of our family. You have a true skill in bringing out each person’s individual personality as well as the family as a whole. I love your approach and way with the kids (I always have). You made what often can be a very stressful endeavor to a really fun experience. And to top it off the portrait video. What a special gift that we will treasure for the rest of our lives – Priceless!”

Beach Session FAQ’s

How will you prep us for our beach photography session?
Prepping you for your photography session is my number one priority.  Let me take the stress out of planning your beach session.

Start by completing the questionnaire so I can get to know your family. Then, plan on having a phone or email consult. I want to know everything about your vision for the shoot and why you love the beach so much.  I want to know the color scheme of your home and what wall you’d like to update. From beginning to end, I’m here to help.

How do you handle crazy kids that run away and just want to throw sand?
Crazy kids? Who has them 😉

Well, I start by shaking their hand and introducing myself.  That’s always a good start. Your kids may need time to warm up and earn my trust. I take the time upfront. Yes, they may run away – it’s the beach! I am there to keep things under control, guaranteed.

I have a background as a nanny and have earned a degree in early childhood / elementary education — there’s nothing I can’t handle (knock on wood, right?) Before the session, please tell me all about your little ones so that I may be prepared with my favorite tricks and tools.

How much will this cost us? 
The final cost of your session will vary based on your package selection. A $175 beach session deposit is required to reserve your session. After your session, you’ll get to choose between three great packages. Packages rates range from $600-$1500. Please contact Heather for a full rate guide.

What if the weather doesn’t cooperate?
It does rain in Ocean City, unfortunately. The chances of it being a complete wash on the day of your session are slim. If the weather fails us, we will reschedule to another day in the week.

Please note: Your session fee does not include any digital products. The session fee covers our time together prepping and carrying out your session. All prints/products are sold separately.
