Portrait Session - General Information

  • Sessions can take place virtually anywhere; your home, office or any one of the many beautiful locations in the greater Beaufort area.

  • If you choose an outdoor venue, it is recommended to schedule your session in the early morning or late afternoon when the light of the day is the prettiest.  The general recommendation is to start a morning session 30 minutes before sunrise and evening sessions an hour before sunset.

  • For the best results, it is recommended that families and groups coordinate their outfits.  It is not necessary for everyone's outfits to match but excessively bright colors and loud patterns tend to pull one's attention away from the most important element in family and group portraits, the faces.

  • The traditional outfit for beach portraits is white tops with khaki slacks/shorts.  Other solid colors work but again, it is best to avoid loud colors and patterns.
