Often times my favorite images from the session aren't the ones where everyone is looking at the camera.  My style is more natural, organic and full of lots of emotion.  There will be lots of laughing, hugging, tickling and holding onto each other.  It's in those moments that we see each other for who we really are.

Show up. love on your family.  leave the rest up to me.

We can chat through email or on the phone to schedule your session.  Please send me details through my contact form and I will respond within 24-48 hours.

Prep for Your Shoot

One of the fun parts of my job is helping you find a location that fits your style.  Thankfully we have SO many incredible spots around the Bay Area.  

Another detail is planning your clothing!  Your session fee includes access to my Styling Platform that perfectly curates clothing based on your style and sizes.  You will love it!

I'll send you "all-the-things" for your big day - location ideas, outfit inspo, you name it!

the Big Day

So many details you've planned and now the day is here.  It's time to relax and let me do all the work.  Try to be in the moment and forget about everything else.  Don't worry if everything isn't perfect, it's not supposed to be because life isn't perfect.  We are documenting YOU just as you are!

the day has arrived and it's time to get those amazing photos you've been dreaming of!

Gallery Delivery

About 2-3 days after your session, I will post a sneak peek to my social media platforms!  I know you are dying to see the rest, but trust me, it's worth the wait.  About 7-14 days after your session, I will send you your gallery with all your images.  You will have access to downloading the high resolution images.

Are you dying to see your photos?  Check my Social platforms for your sneak peek!

Print Ordering

This is such an important part to your session and something I highly encourage my clients to do.  Hang those photos up and admire them!  Talk with your kids about the memories you created.  

An easy way to order prints, is directly from your gallery.  Simply click the shopping cart and I'll do the rest!

When I think about my style and how I shoot a family, from start to finish, one word comes to mind and that is CONNECTION! During your session, I want you to be relaxed and feel comfortable, almost forgetting I am there. I will direct you into poses that feel natural, candid and bring out all the feels in you! While we all want that everyone-looking-at-the-camera pose (And I will make sure we get that right off the bat), I also want you to have all those little in between moments of you with your kids, husband and even pets.  

I am located in the East Bay of San Francisco but travel all over the Bay Area, up to 30 miles outside of Walnut Creek. Anything outside that radius, I do charge a small travel fee.

A typical session will last between 45 minutes and 1 hour. If you have younger kids, it may take even longer if we have to stop for snack breaks:) but that is not a problem at all. If your kids are having a hard time, some times it’s best to take a breather and let them calm down. I do encourage families to bring treats such as gummy bears or fruit snacks to entice kids to cooperate:)

The best time for outdoor photos is approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour before sunset. I understand that can be hard when it falls around kids bedtime but you may be surprised how well your child will do with having to push bedtime back. Another option if you have early rising kids, is to meet at sunrise! Just as beautiful as golden hour!

Between 1-2 weeks from your session date, is when I will send over your final gallery of images.
