My style is natural, relaxed and minimalistic. I want to capture your family moments as you are. Let's document those big moments of your newborn's first few days at home, the chaos your toddlers bring by racing for the swings at the park, your beautiful daughter's senior portraits when she graduates high school, all the things you want to look back and remember for years to come. My sessions last about an hour and I encourage laughter, hugs, kisses and squeezes.
Outdoor sessions begin approximately 1 hour before sunset.
My pricing is very simple. All sessions are $350 in the Bay Area. The session is about 1 hour for coverage up to 10 people and includes at least 75 edited photos available for download from a web gallery. Portrait sessions are usually only 30 mins, so those sessions are $175.
Family sessions generally take place outdoors an hour before sunset. We can also do in home sessions, if you think your home has sufficient light. The best outfits for family photos are coordinated and don't match too much. Check out my Pinterest page for some outfit ideas. When choosing outfits, keep in mind we will most likely be outdoors and possibly sitting on grass, dirt etc. Click here for some tips for taking great family photos.
I suggest maternity sessions around 30-34 weeks pregnant. Waiting until 33 or 34 weeks is best to capture the full round belly before feeling 'too big'.
Newborn lifestyle sessions generally take place between 7-14 days of life when your baby is still sleeping most of the day. Sessions last about 3 hours in your home to accommodate feeding and sleeping schedules (of your baby). Family lifestyle photos are also included.
Outdoor sessions can be up to 2 locations about an hour before sunset when the light is most romantic to capture one of your first milestones as a couple.
Social media has made your headshot (for good or for worse) one of the most important things for your career and life on the internet. A great portrait on your linkedin profile will get you emails from job recruiters or on the dating sites - that hot date you've been eyeing. The sessions are quick and painless with a building or shrubbery in the background.
