Free Portraits

June 15, 2021

One of the many perks of staying with Southern Shores Realty is a free family portrait sitting with a professional photographer!

We have partnered with Deb Sawyer at Beach Portraits. She will help you capture your amazing memories on the Outer Banks, which will be cherished for years to come.

As per Beach Portraits website, here are the details:

Southern Shores Realty offers their clients a FREE PORTRAIT SITTING by Beach Portraits.  The $200 Sitting Fee is waived for all families staying in their rental program.

We offer two types of sessions to meet your needs and budget.  Your images are edited, converted to JPEGS, and ready before you leave the beach. AND, if you choose Package #2, we include a free 11×14 print of choice, shipped to your home!

Package #1

If you are only interested in having a great portrait of your entire family group, we can take several images of one professional pose for $199. You will be sent a link within 48 hours to your personal Google Drive Page. The images will be posted, High Resolution, with NO watermarks, so you can print your own pictures and use them on social media. You may share your page link by email, to whoever you wish, as you own the Copyrights to your images. If you are booking this one pose sitting, you will come to one of our favorite ocean front locations within two hours of sunrise OR two hours before sunset. We photograph these portraits at the Kitty Hawk Pier, Jennettes Pier in Nags Head, or Shad Street beach access in Corolla. In the early morning or evening, the piers cast a shadow on the beach to keep you from squinting in the bright morning or early evening light. People love the look of the pier pilings. The ocean is your background. In the early evening, Shad Street’s tall dunes, cast a shadow as well and offer beach grass and sea oats in the image. PLEASE book this sitting as soon as possible for the best portraits times. We require a $100 deposit that goes toward your $199 plus sales tax total.

Package #2

If you want an entire sitting, including poses taken of the whole group, each individual family group, just the children of each group, grandparents with grandchildren, etc., you can schedule a time for a Full Session. In most cases, if you are staying oceanfront, or just across the street, we can come right to your rental.  After we color correct the images, and take beach goers out of the background, you will receive a link, within 48 hours, to your personal Google Drive Page. The images will be posted, High Resolution, with NO watermarks, so you can print your own pictures and use on social media. You may share your images by email, to whoever you wish, as you own the Copyrights. A $200 deposit is required to reserve your hour long sitting. This deposit is NOT a sitting fee but goes directly to your package price. And, because you are a client of Southern Shores, you also receive a free 11×14 print of your choice. Because we have it printed at a custom lab, we ship it right to your home address once you make your decision on the image.  This package price depends upon the total number of people being photographed. Pricing starts at $299 for a couple. Call or email us for pricing. PLEASE book this sitting as soon as possible so we can give you the best portrait times. These appointment times are limited.

 Although you receive copyrights to print your own pictures and use on social media, if you want to order prints through the custom lab we use, we can assist you. 

The staff members of  Beach Portraits are looking forward to meeting your family and creating life long memories.

To schedule your sitting, simply fill out the form on our website.
