I’ll guide you through the entire process

Hello and welcome to the investment guide

I love to tell stories through my shots. Each click is like a page in a book, unfolding a narrative of emotions, connections, and experiences. It's not just about taking pictures; it's about creating a visual story that resonates with you.

What I've found is that this approach creates a comfortable vibe during sessions. You, get to be yourselves, and that authenticity shines through in the photos. I'm not big on making people strike unnatural poses. Instead, I let the moments unfold naturally.

FAQ's

01/04

Do you offer Styling/wardrobe?

Absolutely. I've got a bunch of favorite stores that I think nail the photoshoot look, and I'll happily spill the beans on those. I've got an eye for detail, so I often pick out specific pieces for everyone in the family. Now, don't worry, it's not all about shopping sprees – you can totally mix in stuff you already own.
But wait, there's more! When you book a full or maternity session, you get access to my client closet. You can borrow some sweet outfits for both moms and kiddos. Now, while my usual go-to is that timeless vibe, I'm totally down to switch things up. If your family has a unique style idea, I'm all ears and ready to make it work. So let's make you all look amazing and have a blast doing it!

Where will the session take place?

I shoot all over Bay Area California, from San Francisco to Morgan Hill. I take a lot of time to scout gorgeous locations and know how they look during different times of year, how the light falls, and whether the spot is accessible and how closer it is to the parking lot. Clients often book with me months in advance to get their dream location at the perfect time. I will send you location recommendations with sample photos for your shoot date taking into account where you live, how far you are willing to drive, what kind of session you want, ages of your kids, and how the location will look on your shoot date. I also shoot indoors as well in a more intimate setting whether that be your home, or a creative studio.

What will the session time be?

My sessions take place 1-2 hours before sunset or at sunrise for that gorgeous light. If you have little kids who go to bed early, keep in mind that sunset times are much earlier in the Fall and Winter and schedule your nap times around it. However parents are always amazed how long kids can last in sessions past their bedtime especially when they are having fun on the beach! Or consider a sunrise session in the woods for early evenings.

What is a Micro Family Session?

Micro family sessions are like mini sessions but offered through out the year. These sessions are short and quick with multiple families participating back to back. They make for great annual photos for those holiday cards or just for documenting a milestone such as birthday, graduation etc.,. It covers immediate family up to 5 members & (no pets).

Do you offer at home sessions?

Yes, I do offer at home Newborn lifestyle, family & maternity sessions.

Do you give RAW images?

I do not provide raw images as it represents the unfinished, unprocessed work that I've captured behind the lens. Raw images require specialized editing software and expertise to bring them to their full potential. My commitment to you is delivering professionally edited, finished images that uphold my high-quality standards. This ensures that you receive the best representation of my work and your cherished moments. I firmly believe in providing you with the final product that reflects the dedication and artistry I put into each image I capture. If you have any questions or need further clarification, please don't hesitate to reach out, and I'll be delighted to assist you in any way I can.

Do you offer extended family sessions?

Yes I do offer extended family sessions, so please get in touch with me for a custom quote.
