More Info and FAQ

What are your prices?

A.I offer a variety of packages, including mini-sessions and full sessions with files. Please contact me for more information.

Do you offer mini-sessions? What's included?

A.I offer limited mini-sessions throughout the year. These sessions are 20 minutes and are for up to 5 immediate family members. After your session, you will receive an online proofing gallery and can select 3 high-resolution files to download. You will also have the opportunity to purchase all of the files in your gallery if you choose.

What is the difference between a Full or Half Session and a Petite (mini) Session?

A.Half sessions are available any time and include all of the high-resolution files from your gallery. A mini-session (aka Petite Session) is available only at certain times and specific locations. A Petite session includes an online proofing gallery and 3 high-resolution files. Availability for Petite Sessions is extremely limited.

What's included in your sessions?

A.All sessions include the following:
-time and talent of the photographer
-an online gallery to browse and select your images
- basic color and exposure correction of all images in your gallery
-travel within 20 miles of 92694
Sessions are for up to 5 people in an immediate family unit. Please contact me for a custom quote on larger group sessions.

How many photos do I get?

A.The number of photos presented depends on the length of the session and the number of people being photographed. As a general rule of thumb, I deliver approximately 75 photos for a full session and 40 photos for a half session.

Do you offer extended family sessions (i.e, grandparents, cousins, etc?)

A.Absolutely! My normal session fees are for up to 5 people, but I offer custom sessions for extended family. Please inquire for an exact quote.

Can I bring my dog?

A.Please do! I am an animal lover and self-proclaimed dog whisperer. However, some locations do not allow pets. Please contact me to discuss some dog-friendly shooting locations.

What if my kids misbehave, act crazy or cry?

A.As a mom, I understand how stressful a portrait session can be. I also know that the energy or stress that parents bring to the session can make a huge difference on our kids' behavior. I ask that parents let me take the reins with wrangling the kiddos and creating the smiles. Relax and let me do my thing ;)

Do I have to order prints through you?

A.I do offer professional-quality prints, but also offer high-resolution files to all of my clients. I am happy to fulfill print orders for you or direct you to a quality consumer photo lab.

What should we wear?

A.Above all else, wear something that you feel comfortable in. I generally recommend that families coordinate tones and colors to create a pleasing color palette for their images. Matching outfits are not required (and in my opinion should be avoided.) If you are struggling with what to wear, I recommend choosing an outfit for the most difficult person to dress first, then coordinating the other outfits around that color palette.
