Free Family Portrait Sitting

Capture the magic of your Outer Banks vacation with a free family photo sitting!

Southern Shores guests receive a FREE PORTRAIT SITTING by Beach Portraits.  We offer two types of sessions to meet your needs and budget. 

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. We take these sittings at certain scenic locations in Corolla, Southern Shores and Nags Head. The portraits will be posted online for you to download.These images will be ?High Resolution?, color corrected, and people taken out of the background onthe best three. They are ready for you to print yourself and use on social media. There are nowatermarks or logos on the images, and you own the copyrights. A $100 deposit is required to reserve your sitting. This deposit is NOT a sitting fee but goes directly to your package price.

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., the cost will depend upon the total number of people being photographed. The portraits will be posted online for you to download. These images will be ?High Resolution?, color corrected, and people taken out of the background. They are ready for you to print yourself and use on social media. There are no watermarks or logos on the images, and you own the copyrights. A $200 deposit is required toreserve your hour long sitting. This deposit is NOT a sitting fee but goes directly to your package price. And, because you are a customer of Southern Shores Realty you also receive a free 11x14 print of your choice. We have the 11x14 printed at a custom lab, and ship it right to your home address, once you make your decision on the image. PLEASE book this sitting as soon as possible,times are limited. If you schedule early enough, in most cases, we can come right to your rental. You may schedule your sitting as soon as you make your reservation with Southern Shores Realty.

Early morning portraits are best taken on the beach at Jennettes and Kitty Hawk Pier, or sound front at Whalehead in Corolla. The piers cast a shadow on the beach to keep you from squinting in the bright morning light. The ocean is your background. Whalehead has large oak trees for shade with the background of the Currituck Sound or the Currituck Lighthouse.

If you prefer an evening sitting, you can come to one of our favorite oceanfront locations within three hours of sunset. We photograph at these scenic spots in Corolla, Southern Shores, Kill Devil Hillsand Nags Head. If you want an entire portrait sitting, if still available, we can come right to yourrental the hour before suns

We recommend that you book your Outer Banks family portrait sitting at least 2 weeks in advance of your arrival day for the best availability.
