Mermaid Session Collections
Thank you for your interest in scheduling a mermaid session.
Sessions may be scheduled in the AM (7:00-7:30) or PM (8:00) and are held at a beach near Derby, NY.
If you have a different location idea in mind, just let me know!
Sessions typically result in 5-10 final edited images for you to select from.
You will view your images approximately 1-2 weeks after your session.
From this gallery you will choose your image for your product/files included in your package.
Additional prints or digital files can be ordered in addition to your collection.
Below are the collection options for your session.
A $100 deposit & signed contract is required to secure your session.
The $100 will be credited towards the collection you choose.
The remaining balance will be due at the time of the session (e.g. If you choose the Standard Collection, $100 will be due now to book, $150 is due at the session)
Cash, Check, or Credit is accepted.
8.75% NYS tax will be applied to each collection.
Digital files mean you get to download the photo and receive a print release for it.
Digital files also come with a corresponding 4x6 print for archival purposes.
So, select the Petite Collection, receive a 4x6 of that file, Standard = 3 digital files w/corresponding 4x6, Gold = All digital files w/corresponding prints

Do you provide the mermaid outfit?
Yes! I have a tail for a toddler, a tail for the 5-12 year range, and an "adult" tail that will fit teenagers and up.
I may suggest for a mom/adult to bring her own bandeau or bikini top in a solid color.
I recommend for the mermaid to wear a bikini bottom/swimmie diaper/underwear/etc under the tail, and then bring a change of clothes for the drive home.
What color tails do you have?
The actual colors can be seen in the photos above. But I also can edit photos to almost any other color The tail in this photo below is the same seen in the Petite & Gold collection photos.
Those times are too early/late. Can you meet mid-day?
Unfortunately I cannot. These times were chosen based on the lighting it provides which is needed for me to achieve this beautiful, dreamy lighting.
If I choose a package that includes 3 digital files, is that all you edit?
No. I edit anything I love from the session. For mermaid sessions that's usually somewhere close to 10 final photos. From the final ones I edit you get to choose which you would like to download the full file and receive a print release for. That doesn't mean the remaining will disappear forever.
If you choose the Standard Package but can't narrow it down to the 3 favorites, you can order additional digital files from the gallery. Or maybe grandma will want to order a 5x7 print from one of the files you didn't choose.....they will all remain in the gallery for you.
What is a Luxe Metal Art?
The most unique & whimsical product I offer and absolutely perfect for Mermaid Sessions.
Below you'll see what I mean. Your photo is printed on metal and cut into this unique shape. On the back is a "float mount" that easily hangs on a nail or hook in your wall and gives the illusion that it is "floating" off of the wall.
