Life can be busy especially if you have children! Anytime Mermaid Sessions are scheduled to fit within your schedule.  I put on a Mermaid Day a few times during the summer, which involves bringing ALL my tails down to the beach for lots of Mermaid Fun! If you miss one of my Mermaid Photo Days, dont worry, you can still book a Mermaid Session around your vacation to Santa Cruz. Many people choose to take their vacation in Santa Cruz and book a Mermaid Session at the beach in Capitola or Santa Cruz to schedule into their time at the coast.
