Beach Sessions : $400 - 30+digital images

Beach sessions are available in Charleston SC and surrounding beaches.

I will get photos of the whole family, siblings, each child and candids of everyone interacting with each other.  Plan on having fun, laughing and maybe even getting a little dirty.  Feel free to bring your favorite toy or book. There are no outfit changes! This session includes a downloadable online gallery with high resolution, edited images with print release and the option to order professional prints through me. This fee is for ONE family.  Please contact me for pricing if you are interested in a extended family session.


Session fee must be paid in full at session. I accept cash, check and paypal.

Please allow 2-3 weeks for the completion and delivery of your digital collection.

what to expect

I enjoy providing a fun and relaxed experience that will capture the personalities that are unique to each family. A family session can last 30-60 minutes. Innocence. Honesty. That goofy face they’re always making. The way their nose wrinkles when they giggle. Their shy, daydreaming stare. The way their hair won’t lay just right. These are the things I strive to capture. I prefer not to tell them to smile or say cheese. I like to talk, tell jokes and play in order to pull their personality out. I want the experience to be fun, not a chore! Please let me lead the way and ask you if I need help. No need for threats or bribes, although I may have a few bribes up my own sleeve. I will work at their level and their pace. Sometimes, we’ll work one-on-one, away from the pressures of “performing” for Mom and Dad. I will do a mixture of formal and candid shots in order to capture you and your family as you really are. I might play and run alongside your child and treat the session as a play date if it means I’ll capture them in their natural element. Real smiles. Real memories.  

Nichole Marie Photography is a business dedicated to preserving your memories for an affordable price.  I specialize in lifestyle, on location photography using natural light serving Charlotte, NC and all surrounding areas.

My goal as a photographer is to completely satisfy you as a client.  I want to create original images tailored to you, your personality, and your family.   I pride myself in the flexibility and time I spend prepping, individualizing and editing your session.  I know how important portraits are to you and I want you to realize how important they are to me as well.  Photography is an investment that will last forever.  The photographs that are produced as a result of my professionalism and dedication as your photographer will be cherished for a lifetime (or more) and great thought and consideration should be placed into hiring who is right for your family's most precious investment. I have a certain workflow for every session in order to insure I get the images I need for your gallery.  In our very Pinterest-inspired culture, it's understandable that you may come with some ideas you've seen elsewhere. I will certainly try a handful of them, but it is also important to me to stay true to my own artistic style as well. If you have any specific ideas in mind, please tell me before the session, so I can be sure to come prepared.  If you feel I’m the right person to serve you, I would love to hear from you!


Each session fee includes the time and talent of the photographer before, during, and after the session.  Pictures are professionally edited and ready to print.  A print (not copyright) release will be included.  With this, you can print any of the images off the digital collection anywhere you like.  We will NOT guarantee any products not printed through us.  You will have the option to order products through us.  We print with a professional printing service that will provide higher quality products than any other commercial prints.    Please allow 2-3 weeks for the completion and delivery of your digital collection/online gallery. You will be able to download your digital images straight to your computer and share your gallery with anyone you choose. You will also be able to order professional prints straight from your galley and they are shipped to you. For weddings please allow 6-8 weeks for the completion and delivery of your package. Your downloadable online gallery will be available for two weeks and then expire.  There is a $25.00 reinstalment fee of expired galleries.
