I want to remember every inch of my daughter at this age, her wrinkled nose and her open mouth laugh, the way she rests on my chest and her baby teeth.  But sadly most of my daily photos consists of a blur of child moving too fast for my iPhone to catch and hardly ever with me in the frame.  I want to remember us all together, how we are right now, as a family.  A cuddly, giggly, loving family.  That's why we also get family photos each year. 

Family photos are an investment in your future and memories, You will look back and think about how your children grew up so fast and wish to remember that precious time again, the time that they wanted to cuddle and kiss you and be all over you! We all know how fast it goes! You will have these photos, to hold these memories close for your entire life, to show children and grandchildren these gorgeous photos of you and your family in this moment in time. 

I want to capture this time for you, for your family, exactly how you are.  These fleeting moments with your child at this age, you at your age, one you will never be again.  Looking back on my childhood photos, the ones with my parents are the ones I cherish the most. 

30 years from now what images will your children find of you and them together? 

My photography style is fun, energetic, spontaneous and playful.  I  have always loved children and my playful side definitely comes out when I shoot.  I will do anything to make a child laugh but most of the time I want you to be making them laugh, by tickling, playing and connecting with them the way you do everyday. 

This is where the real magic happens.

HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU DELIVER?
          Since every portrait is different, I can’t guarantee a certain number of images. But, I can tell you that I deliver an average of 150-250 fully edited images per family, maternity and newborn session and 250-350 for each day in the life session.   Each of my portrait options includes an online gallery filled with beautiful, high resolution images. You are able to download, print and share with family and friends.   

WILL ALL OF MY IMAGES BE EDITED?
          Yes, each image I deliver from every session is individually hand edited by me.  This includes correcting exposure, color correcting and making each image exactly the way I like it to match my light but colorful style.  

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
          Your full online gallery of edited images will be delivered to your inbox within 2-3 weeks, much quicker in the slow season.  

WHERE ARE YOU BASED AND IS THERE A TRAVEL FEE?
          I am based in Mill Valley, all of my sessions include travel 15 miles from Mill Valley (94941).  Any location beyond that will include a travel fee of $2/mile. 

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO WE NEED TO BOOK? 
          My weekends typically fill up pretty fast, especially in the busy season (Summer and Fall),  I highly recommend booking at least 1-2 months in advance, or as soon as you know you want a session with me.   

WE ARE READY TO BOOK, WHAT'S THE PROCESS TO SECURE A SESSION? 
          Contact me through my website form to setup a phone consult to tell me more about your family and what kind of session you are interested in, let me answer any questions you have and discuss dates and locations.  
          Pay the $200 non-refundable retainer and sign portrait contract.  I do not hold dates for inquiries, the only way to secure a date with me is to sign the portrait contract and pay the retainer.  

DO YOU SHOOT DIGITAL OR FILM?
          Digital with a light film feel, natural light photographer

WHAT TYPE OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE? 
          I shoot with a Canon Mark II and Mark III, as well as a variety of professional lenses and lots of sandisk memory cards. I always bring backup equipment.  

HOW MANY PORTRAITS DO YOU SHOOT A YEAR? 
          I accept 20 portrait sessions per year to better serve each client with an exceptional experience and give them all of my attention.  

WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH AT A SESSION?  WHAT CAN WE EXPECT AT A SESSION WITH YOU? 
          I love energetic, spontaneous candids, unposed moments of love and connection!  I want your family to play, giggle and have fun!  During a session, I will be moving and shooting a lot!  I don't waste a moment of time and make it fun and easy.  You can also expect timely emails and great communication.  

WHO CHOOSES THE LOCATION AND TIME? 
          Your portrait session can be in your home or at your favorite location.  I also have lots of beautiful locations in mind that I love holding sessions. 

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?  WILL YOU HELP WITH WARDROBE ADVICE?
          Yes, I'm always available to guide you but most importantly you should feel comfortable and confident and feel like yourself in what you choose to wear.  Light and neutral colors are great for a newborn shoot,  
          I love maxi dresses for maternity sessions, and I of course love lots of colorful clothing and patterns!  Depending on availability you can also hire a stylist I recommend. 

WHEN SHOULD WE SCHEDULE A SESSION FOR... 
          Maternity sessions are held at 32-38 weeks. 
          Newborn sessions are held with contract and retainer and scheduled when baby is born, I try to schedule newborn sessions 1-3 weeks after birth.  
          My weekends book up pretty quickly especially in the busy season (summer and fall) so I would secure your date as soon as you know you want to book a shoot with me! 

DO YOU OFFER MINI SESSIONS? 
          I offer mini sessions once or twice a year, sign up for my newsletter to be notified as soon as a day is chosen and open for bookings.  

HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE INCLUDED IN A SESSION? 
          Sessions include up to 5 family members, each additional person is $25. 

DO YOU HAVE HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTISTS YOU RECOMMEND? 
          Yes, I have a list of local professional hair and makeup artists that I have worked with before.

Maternity and family sessions are 1-1.5 hours, newborn sessions are 2-3 hours and day in the life sessions are 3 hours.
