MEET YOUR CAPTAIN

The Florida Suncoast lifestyle you embrace is a big part of your identity, and the time you spend on your boat is integral to your way of life, as well as your family's.

Wouldn't it be amazing to document an afternoon with your loved ones on your beautiful boat?  These priceless memories deserve to be captured and treasured for years to come.

Colleen is requesting permission to come aboard and create gorgeous photographs of you on your boat!

IT'S ABOAT
TIME!

what are nautical portraits?

why knot?

A Florida Suncoast native, I feel most alive being on or near the water.  I first learned to sail at summer camp at 8 years old, and received my sailing certification on the Hudson in NYC.  I've enjoyed sailing around the Whitsundays of Australia, kayaking on Lake Michigan, voyaging the entire length of Norway, catamaranning around Fiji, and even boating over a herd of hippos in Zimbabwe, all with my camera in hand!

I've been photographing happy people professionally for almost a decade, and look forward to meeting & photographing you and your loved ones aboard soon!

Hi! I'm COLLEEN, CAPTAIN OF:
CREATIVITY
photography +
fun!

There is nothing more important than family, and photographs are often my clients' most treasured items.

Photographs of your loved ones aboard your boat, happy and enjoying the Florida sunshine, with you in your element steering the ship, sound like the perfect way to capture your family's special moments together.

I use a combination of my Nikon DSLR for on deck images and video, a waterproof domed camera for fun underwater images and video if we decide to anchor somewhere and splash around, and my drone for really captivating aerial images and video, creating a modern and unique documentation of your nautical lifestyle!

(ARE YOU TIRED OF MY NAUTICAL PUNS YET?)

WHERE SHALL WE SAIL and shoot photos?

Let's be real here:  the Florida West Coast is the BEST coast, am I right?!

I am happy to meet you on the dock in Tampa, Saint Petersburg, Sarasota, Fort Myers, Naples, and all the gorgeous little beach towns in between along the Florida Suncoast!

let's explore!

Want so set sail away from Florida?  I LOVE to travel and am happy to accompany you on your nautical adventures.  Some of my favorite clients have brought me along to photograph them and their loved ones in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Mexico, South Africa, and around the Azores, and I've loved every minute of it!

what if i want more?

While most of my on-land portrait sessions are wrapped up within an hour or two, I realize that time at sea is a bit more fluid.

My nautical portrait session includes three hours of my time with you and your loved ones aboard your boat for 900 clams.

Included in this price is a 16x20 ready to hang wall art of your choice, as well as your favorite 25 images, hand edited and delivered digitally in high resolution.

Additional prints, wall art, albums, and digital images available for purchase separately.

how many clams will this cost?

Psst!  My accountant has asked me to put a disclaimer here that clams will not be accepted as valid forms of payment.  1 clam = 1 U.S. dollar.  Let's not make him p-irate! 

want absolutely everything?

Fall in love with more than 25 images from our time sailing together?  (How could you knot?)
You may purchase the full digital collection (50+ images) for an additional 500 clams.  Digital files are perfect for archiving your memories & sharing online with family + friends; they also come with a print release, so you can make prints whenever & wherever you choose!

My most popular add-on is the Modern Luxe Album, which includes all your favorite images from your session in a stunning display piece you'll want to have pride of place in your home.  The small album (8 inch square, 20 pages) is 650 and the large album (10 inch square, 20 pages) is 850.
