yes, with my 30a photographer services

OF COURSE! THE REAL QUESTION IS...

how much are they

 

As a 30A Florida destination photographer, I firmly believe that everyone should have ALL the memories we capture! I understand that not every memory is worthy of a wall portrait, however it might be perfect for social media and therefore effective Jan 1, 2024 all gallery image downloads are included when you purchase your online gallery.

My photo sessions typically last anywhere from 10 minutes up to 40 minutes for Golden hour beach portraits. The length of your session time will vary based on number of people, time of day, location, outfits, and even the attention span of both kids and adults LOL.

IS A CONTRACT REQUIRED when booking Melonie as my 30A Photographer?

YES, and there are several reasons why you might want to hire a 30A photographer that requires a contract for your portrait session:

 

1. It protects both parties: A contract outlines the rights and responsibilities of both the photographer and the client. This helps to ensure that both parties are on the same page and that there are no misunderstandings.

 

2. It sets clear expectations: A contract outlines the scope of work, payment details, and any other important terms. This helps to ensure that both the client and the photographer have a clear understanding of what is expected.

 

3. It helps to prevent disputes: With a contract in place, there is less room for disagreement or disputes down the line. If an issue does arise, the contract can be used as a reference point to help resolve the issue.

What's your favorite style?

Heartfelt photo session typically aim to capture the natural emotions and activities of individuals and families vs posed smiles. During my heartfelt lifestyle photography sessions there is very little direction from me as these images focus on conveying raw emotions and connections rather than traditional poses and lighting.

The Traditional, Posed Photo Session is an exclusive and personalized experience that incorporates extensive guidance from the photographer/professional image consultant. This premium package is meticulously tailored to bring out the client's unique style, personality, and elegance.

 

Throughout the session, I curate every detail, from ensuring wardrobe looks perfect to selection of best poses for your body shape, resulting in a collection of exquisite and meticulously crafted portraits that reflect the client's individuality and sophistication are.

the pros

OF A LIFESTYLE PHOTO SESSION with 30A PHOTOGRAPHER

These sessions offer a relaxed environment for families and young children on the beach. Build a sand castle, go for a stroll on the beach or snuggle up on a blanket at the beach or even a local park.

These sessions are done with NATURAL LIGHTING and typically seek to capture genuine emotion and laughter between you and your loved ones! Full blown belly giggles and heartfelt hugs are captured for a lifetime.

Very quick and easy! Because of the relaxed atmosphere and natural lighting, we do not need additional camera gear or time for posing and set up between shots.

the cons

OF A LIFESTYLE PHOTO SESSION WITH 30A PHOTOGRAPHER

If you are looking for the traditional photo of your family and loved ones smiling into the camera, chances are this is not the session style for you. Instead choose a portrait session option at either sunrise or sunset Golden Hour.

These sessions are done with natural lighting and therefore may have harsh shadows depending on location, time of day and cloud cover (FYI - we LOVE cloud cover, see why!)

These sessions have very little direction from me as they aim to capture the natural activity and connections of families and couples.  It is suggested to plan an activity like sand castle building or jumping the waves if you have young ones who don't like to pose for the camera.
