Frequently asked questions

1. I want to become a mermaid. How much does it cost?

Our current prices are $85 per person for a standard photoshoot and $105 per person for a Premium photoshoot. After you have received your edited photos, you may request more edited photos from the photographer for an additional fee. Prices are subject to change, so it's recommended to check our Airbnb Experience page for our most updated prices (

2. What's the different between standard and Premium photoshoots?

Our standard photoshoots include: rental of a mermaid tail, top, headdress, and jewelry for the duration of the photoshoot; 1.5 hours with the photographer, including 30-60 minutes of shoot time (depending on how quickly you/your group gets ready); posing coaching; and 10-15 edited photos delivered digitally in the 2-3 weeks after your photoshoot. Premium photoshoots include all of the above, plus an upgrade to one of our highly realistic neoprene tails from Finfolk Productions (check out the"Experience" page above for photos).

3. How many photos do I get?

At this time, your group will receive 10-15 edited photos as part of your Experience. The photos are chosen at the photographer's discretion, but don't worry-- we will make sure you get the best of the best! You'll see in-camera thumbnails of the photos throughout the shoot. This helps you to know how everything's looking, and we can change our posing accordingly to make sure you love your photos. We work with you to ensure that any "must have" photos are included in your final edits. In addition, we offer the option to purchase additional edited photos from your shoot. If you're interested, we can discuss during your shoot, or send us an email to inquire about current prices.

4. Do you do photoshoots for kids?

Yes! We gladly accept little ones for photoshoots, provided that any minors are accompanied by a parent or guardian. Our current inventory includes costumes for ages 2 through adult. We also offer packages for parents who would like to participate with their little ones. Feel free to contact us at to inquire about availability!

5. How do I book a shoot?

At this time, we handle all bookings through the Airbnb Experiences platform. Please navigate to our Experience page to see available dates and to book your shoot. 

6. I don't see a date that I want. Are you all booked?

We often book up 1-2 months in advance, and you may not see any open dates on our calendar. Do not fret! There may be additional time slots available pending availability. You are always welcome to send a message through Airbnb or an email to inquire about a date -- even if it is not on the calendar. We're a one-mermaid operation, but will do our best to accommodate your request!

7. Can my friends and family come?

Yes! We welcome friends and family to come along and watch you in all your mermaid glory! Any friends or family members who wish to become a mermaid/merman for photos will need to purchase a paying spot, but other family and friends are welcome to hang out free of charge. You are welcome to bring kids, but they must be accompanied by a non-participating adult.
