Delaware Lifestyle Beach Family Portrait Sessions
An Experience by Still Poetry Photography
Authentic photography that celebrates real families.
No family is perfect. And no two families look the same. Here are Still Poetry Photography, we capture images that are authentic and showcase what makes your family unique. This isn't an editorial or commercial shoot. We're not looking for perfection. We're capturing joy, love, and togetherness.
"Easily the best experience with a photographer to date! She was super personable, energetic, engaging, a lot of fun and very talented. It was no easy task as she took family photos with a 4 year old and our dog. She made sure everyone was comfortable and enjoying the experience. She was on time, and followed through on everything she said she would do. I was so pleased with our session and final photographs, that I will continue to use her in the future. Would highly recommend her to all of our family and friends. She has an amazing eye, don’t pass up the chance to work with her!"
- Amanda, Beach Family Photography Mom
We've served hundreds of families. Let us turn yours into a work of art.
I'm not a photographer.
Yes, I have a camera. Yes, I take photos. Yes, I use that label when I file my taxes.
But I'm not a photographer. Not really.
I'm an artist. I'm the keeper of your family's legacy. I'm the magician that takes the family chaos tumbling out of an over-packed van and turns it all into a work of art.
I've watched hundreds of families go through the stress that family vacation puts on them. I take away the stress of one of the most important elements of your Delaware family vacation; making sure that those memories will last for generations to come.
Grandma won't be around forever. Your kids will grow up before your eyes.
Anyone can snap a photo. But Still Poetry Photography takes everyday moments we take for granted and turns it into a masterpiece.
Entrust this important task with a true professional. I've got you covered. I promise.

Frequently asked questions:
How do I get my photos?
After your product consultation, you'll get a downloadable collection of web-sized JPEGS to save and share sent to your email. There's no limit on how many people can download. We'll set up a virtual art consultation so we can go which photos you want for your art pieces. We'll order all your products to make it as easy as possible for you! Note: web-sized JPEGs are not large enough to print.
How long do sessions take?
Let's face it; the length of your photo session is completely dependent on your littlest models. Some kids have 15 minutes of focus in them and that is it. Some take longer to come out of their shell. It takes the same amount of skill to capture amazing images in 15 minutes as it does in an hour. I work with your kids to make sure they're feeling happy and respected. There's no time limit other than the setting sun, so you don't have to feel rushed.
My child is very independent and doesn't always listen to direction. Will we still get good pictures?
I have worked with every type of child, from the ones who can't get enough of the camera to those who would rather be anywhere else. I pride myself in my ability to make a safe space for kids to be themselves in photos. At the end of every session, we have "playtime," where all that pent up energy gets released and we get amazing candid photos of kids playing together.
No photo is "perfect." We're not shooting a commercial campaign for Target. I capture memories, not conduct shots with rigid poses.
I especially work well with children on the spectrum and neurodivergent kids (and adults!). Their passion and excitement make the most endearing photos, in my opinion.
Why do you require an art purchase?
To work with us as your family photographers, you pay a session fee and must make an art purchase. We have 5 packages for you to choose from, and we also have an a la carte menu for you to customize exactly what you're looking for.
We require an art purchase for a variety of reasons. Number 1, it breaks our hearts to think about all the photos we've taken that are just sitting in digital graveyards. We believe that you took all that effort of getting your kids dressed up and out the door, you need to celebrate that by displaying it! Number 2, we're focusing on giving a full luxury experience for the families we choose to work with. We've spent countless hours sourcing the best materials and products and each of our product offerings come from a different vendor to guarantee we get the best. This isn't Shutterfly. These creators are artists themselves, and because they are professional-exclusive labs, we think it's our job to bring that quality to our clients.
