Studio Sessions we offer:
What to expect:
At Coastal Studios we take the time to get to know you.
Our Planning & Design Consultation- A 30 minute appointment scheduled at least one week before we create your portrait- is a necessary and extremely helpful step for all concerned- in order to make sure we get the very best portrait. This appointment can often be done over the telephone. We want you to share all of your ideas, wishes, hopes and dreams – you never know how they will reflect all that is uniquely YOU in each portrait. We want to make sure that you feel comfortable and relaxed in our Studio because each session is designed to be fun! You will feel good about yourself and that confidence will come through, making every photograph a cherished treasure!
Portrait Session- During your planning and design consultation, we will determine the amount of time needed for your portrait session. Sessions vary from 30 minutes up to 3 hours depending on the subject matter, number of people and location. Always plan on staying longer. We like our sessions to be fun and relaxed. We never rush and work with you until we have the perfect portrait. Many sessions can be pretty unpredictable, especially when you are dealing with small children or pets. It is a good idea to bring more of what you need. Your photographer will sort through clothing and other items to determine what will work for each portrait.
It will be a fun experience and a memory to last a lifetime!
"View and Choose" Appointment- This appointment usually lasts about one hour. Here, you will view and pick out your finished portraits. This appointment is normally 1-2 days following your studio portrait session. You will enjoy a custom slideshow on our large screen high definition monitors.
Other Important Information:
Please bring complete outfits that are either light or dark solid colors. Dress from head to toe, meaning jewelry all the way down to your shoes. If you have a favorite outfit that is patterned or has a busy print, bring it along with the solids—we'll work everything in together! Please DO come with clothes that are formal or dressy, but be sure to bring along casual clothes, as well! Come with your own makeup, but avoid shiny eyeshadow, gloss or glitter. As a rule, matte makeup is more flattering when you are photographed.
Please call 843-444-9009 for more information about our current session fees.
The fees includes all three appointments mentioned above.
We require the session fee to be paid at the time you make your consultation and portrait session appointments – this will hold the date. If you need to re-schedule your appointment with less than 24 hours notice, your fee will not be refunded. If you need to re-schedule, we allow for one change of date. After that, an additional deposit may be required.
We cannot refund your deposit if you cancel less than 48 hours before the second session.
We certainly do understand when the circumstances are extreme and will work with you as best as we can.
