Coastal Portraits is one of the full service studios in the New Bern, NC, area. The studio is located in a 20x40 foot in my back yard which also has a large porch with 2 swings to accommodate morning or afternoon light. There is a spacious dressing room and I have a variety of backdrops.
You have a lot of choices to design your portrait session at Coastal Portraits.I offer print choices from paper to giclee to canvas to metal. I have a variety of frames, new and used, in stock plus plenty of additional frame choices to select from. Other choices for displaying your images include items such as coffee mugs and key chains. There are also jewelry and photo bags that are available along with photo books and calendars.
As a full service studio the choices are unlimited. For your studio session you can choose between a 30 minute mini session for business headshots, or a regular session. For a regular session clothing changes are not limited nor is the time in the session. I like to shoot until I feel like we have the image you will love.
If you prefer a location session or are looking for a small event to be photographed, such as a birthday party or anniversary celebration, I normally bring an assistant and will cater the photography to your wishes. For a small event session you will always receive a CD of edited images which means the images are sized and corrected. These images are not retouched unless it is obvious it is needed, such as an injury that was temporary. I also post the images on an online gallery so you can share with friends and family and they can order from the gallery.
For a business session (head shot) you can bring several changes of clothing and your image can be taken either in my studio or on the studio porch. Location business sessions are also available. You will receive a digital copy of the image you choose in the format requested (the type of digital file). The image will be edited and retouched. I also offer political candidate sessions with a US flag. For a family session we will determine the best location and clothing and take it from there. I have a special family bond session that is available in which all images are black and white. This can be included with your session at no additional cost. I provide the clothing for this type of session.
