I shoot on location at our beautiful Lewes & Rehoboth Beaches and local in town spots.
The State Park beaches & woods are a fantastic backdrop for your photos. Keep in mind that if you don't have a yearly pass, each car will be charged a $5 fee to park in the DE State Park. This is not included in your session fee. I have permits to shoot in the DE State Parks but that doesn't include the daily entrance fee per car. I highly recommend this as a location as their beaches are stunning and provide a beautiful, natural look to your photos without having other beachgoers "photobomb" us during the busy season.
Newborn sessions are done in my home studio or in your home if you're in the Lewes/Rehoboth area.
I shoot Sunday - Friday evenings. All outdoor shoots are done during the "magic hour" which is the hour before sunset. Start time will vary depending on the time of year so keep that in mind when scheduling if you have little ones. Fall sessions can be as early as 3:30 when the days are the shortest and summer sessions can start as late as 7:45 when the days are the longest.
Newborn sessions are done in the middle of the day when we get the most sunlight coming through the windows.
All sessions are weather pending. The forecast changes so much that I typically won’t call a shoot a rainout until the morning of the scheduled session unless you are traveling from another state. I have shot some beautiful sunsets on nights that were looking like storms so it’s best to wait until at least 8 hours before the session to be able to predict weather. If we end up with rain on the evening of our scheduled shoot then I will do my best to reschedule and get you in as soon as possible. During the fall busy season, this can sometimes be a month out depending on my booking calendar.
