The point of a coastal portrait is to reflect the true nature of your loved ones.
Be yourself, in clothing that you are comfortable in, but there are considerations.
The attire that you choose should absolutely be as classic as possible.
With a smaller family group, there is more allowance for inclusion of some patterns or more of a variety of color. The larger the group, the more cohesive your choices should be.
With that said, each person should retain an individuality with the clothing they wear, and not be forced into something they would never be seen in otherwise for the sake of the portrait.
Clothing with patterns can look busy, as well as too trendy.
Patterned clothing on children should be coordinated in color family with adults.
Keep in mind that patterned clothing can distract from the faces of the subjects. As well, any clothing with obvious branding tend to date the photographs and is not recommended.
Finally, the informality of bare feet is a must. We are at the beach after all!

Normal weather potential includes:
WIND, CLOUDY or GRAY SKIES, MIST or FOG
These factors are to be expected and are more usual than a perfect sunny day.
RBP will photograph the session unless cancellation is the only option, so based on the weather forecast the day you are scheduled, please plan accordingly. A coastal portrait is about experiencing a moment in time at an incredible location that is stunning in any light.
RBP will consider location requests, however, we only photograph at the beach, on the coast.
RBP reserves the right to determine the optimum location for a session and any location must meet specific standards for approval.
