Hello! Hello! Hello!
It’s time! Beach Sessions are here!
Beach sessions are similar to how they have been in in the past, but we are also doing them a little bit differently this year.
The same? The lollipops, the beach fun, the style of photography we’re shooting.
The difference? All sessions are 30 minutes, we’re booking them last-minute, there’s no rain date (we will cross that bridge if we hit it), and we have a fun, NEW purchase option, “Buy It Now!”
Similar to the past, our session fees are separate from our prints and digital products. And this year we’re adding in a buy-up-front *FULL RESOLUTION*, full gallery set of images (includes some color and some black and white), and if you pay up front, not only are you likely to see more social media previews as we edit, but you are also going to have the ability to download your gallery in one click when you receive it. One click, folks. That email dings and you open it and you can grab your gallery in one-click. That’s pretty brilliant, right? You are also likely to receive 10-15 more images than in the regular 30 minute shoot-to-gallery sessions— because, after all, we won’t know which your favorites will be and so we’re going to give you a good bunch of options, and then let you peek through and pick your favorites (plus, you know how sometimes family members have different favorites? THAT. You’re welcome. 😉 )
So, $99 for a 30 minute session (15-25 images), and you’ll have the ordering options as listed on a PDF sent you via email (plus a few more, we don’t toss all our info on the internet after all 😉 ).
Or $499 for “Buy it now”, and grab your whole gallery (25-40 images) and go the day it hits the world wide web.
Here are the dates, and if you’re pre-registered, please go ahead and sign your name via Facebook comment or blog comment to confirm it, and I’ll pull your name from parentheses at that time. (I mean, who wants to be squished in parentheses?) Please also read all the fine print below. We’re super-not-into hiding info from you, so we roll it all out. When you receive your contract, we don’t wish to surprise you with any tricks. So, read on, my friends, and then for making your way through all the text and contracts and online payments, mad-prop treat yourself to a cookie or one of those new fancy homemade organic (free-range?) popsicle things I keep reading about on the internet.

We will then send you via email a PDF, a digital online contract, and an online payment form. With your contract you will be able to choose which package you’re ordering— the $99 session only, or the $499 Full Resolution download option. The $499 option is only available if purchased up front, prior to the session.
(Packages removed now that sessions have booked. They remain in your client PDF.)
FINE PRINT BUT IN CAPS AND BOLD TEXT SO YOU DO NOT MISS IT!
Single-generation family, no extended families (please and thank you)
Engaged couples may book with a minimum overall purchase of $499
If you are late, your session will be reduced by the number of minutes you are late.
Unless it is actively raining, we are shooting. Last year it rained for 9 minutes, and then it stopped and was awesome instead. Bring an umbrella. It’s the lakefront. Weather moves fast and the beach is pretty in many forms.
If you are sick, please call Robyn immediately. If she cannot replace your session, you will need to fill the spot yourself.
Galleries will be live for 10 days. 10% early bird print discount for first 3 days. $35 gallery extension.
You will receive a PDF with clothing and session prep advice. Because mini-sessions are discounted sessions, please do not contact the studio with extensive questions about clothing and prep. Extensive styling consultations are reserved for full family sessions that start at $299 per family on weekdays.
