Many people have the dream to become a mermaid and we understand that, so that is why we came up with our Turn into a Mermaid Experience and Photoshoot. All of our sessions will be done on the beach with a professional photographer.

We get you outfitted up in a mermaid tail and help get you ready with accessories such as our starfish hair clip and more. Your mermaid makeover gets you ready to produce a professional mermaid photo that you will remember for years to come.

We do our mermaid shoots at the golden hour before the sun goes down or at sunrise right after the sun comes up. We want to make sure you have the perfect lighting to go along with the beautiful mermaid you will become. 

 All of these mermaid photography sessions include use of props and rental tails. Mermaid tails are intended for photography use only and will need to be returned, however we also offer the option of purchasing your mermaid tail. 

 You will need to bring with you to the beach a swim suit. We do provide tops, however wear your favorite swimsuit just in case you would feel more comfortable wearing one of your own. It is also a good idea to bring a beach towel as you may get wet if you are willing to get into the water for some water shots. 

 Our photographers enjoy bringing out the beauty and smiles as they are photographing mermaids. They work on bringing out the special moments when you or your child or both turn into the majestic mermaid you have always wanted to be. 

 Once the session is complete you will be able to view the images on our website within 2 weeks. We take our time and professionally edit each image to bring out its true beauty.

What do I need to bring?

We provide the tails, as well as the accessories. (starfish for your hair, sea shell props, paint brush, fishing net, etc.) You need to wear your favorite swimsuit. The bathrooms are a 5 minute walk from the beach so please wear your suit to the session. You should also bring a towel and any other accessories you would like to be incorporated into your photo session! Also bring a quarter or 2 for public beach access parking.

Who can be a mermaid?

Anyone! Babies as young as 3 weeks old have become mermaids with us, children, mermen, and even MERternity mermaids are welcome! Our oldest mermaid was 70 years old so you're never too old or too young!

How should I do my hair and makeup?

For hair, we recommend beach waves. Check out our pinterest page for some ideas how to obtain that perfect mermaid look. We like to keep our mermaids natural looking, but as far as make up goes, we leave that up to you! You know best what makes you look like a stunning mermaid! We do not have anyone to help with hair and make up so this needs to be done prior to arriving for the experience. 

What should I wear?

Wear your favorite swimsuit! We do provide tops but we recommend that you wear your favorite matching top in case you would feel more comfortable wearing your own.

How do I know what tail size I am?

Give us your best guess and we will bring different sizes to be sure you get the right fit. This is why it is important to show up early to your session. You may have to try on several tails before finding the one that is just right.

Can I swim in the tail?

No. We allow 10 minutes of mermaid time to flop around in the tail and play in the water (ideal for younger mermaids) but due to such strong currents off of our Hilton Head coastline, we do not allow you to swim in the tails in the ocean. 

What color tails do you have?

For the experience and photoshoot we currently offer the Watercolor Wave and Tigerlily pictured below.

Multiple mermaids, how does that work?

The first mermaid is $75 and the cost is $65 per additional mermaid up to 4 mermaids. If you have more than 4 mermaids, you will need to schedule 2 sessions to be sure we have enough time to get photos of everyone. The only exception to this is our Mermaid Bachelorette Experience.

How long does it take to receive photos once the session is over?

You will receive a link to your online gallery via e-mail within 1-2 weeks.

What happens if we get bad weather at the time of our session?

The weather in Hilton Head is changing constantly. If it is calling for bad weather at the time of your session, we will make the call the day of your session. We will try our best to reschedule your session, however if we are unable to reschedule, we would issue a full refund.

 We have partnered with One Dollar for the Ocean and we donate One Dollar to a non-profit organization for every service booked. Join us on one of our Experiences and help us give back. Come have fun and do something good for our oceans.
