investment

As I mentioned on my About page, I believe in making photography affordable to families of all backgrounds. I am able to accomplish this by not requiring my clients to spend an additional minimum amount on physical prints purchased solely through me.  

 

That being said, I offer two packages and the base rates on them include full-resolution digital downloads only.  You're more than welcome to take your full-resolution digital images to the printer of your choice, however, I won't be able to guarantee the quality of those prints. But if you'd like to order professional lab quality prints through me, I use Santa Cruz-based Bay Photo Lab and their prints are dreamy! I use them for all my own personal printing!

Looking for something short and sweet like a Mini Session but want more than 3 full-resolution downloads? Don't worry! I offer the option for you to purchase more digital  a la carte. For Mini Sessions, clients typically spend an additional $25-$50 by purchasing more downloads. For a Full Session, I guarantee a minimum of 40 full-resolution digital images, but I've been known to deliver far more. A Full Session is the better value for sure if you're looking for a variety of photographs!

For 2019, I put it out to the Universe that I'd love to get back into documenting LOVE again. I'm currently booking couples who are choosing to elope or who are having small, intimate wedding ceremonies. Elopements begin at $1500 and includes 4 hours of coverage. Small ceremonies begin at $2500 and includes 8 hours of coverage. For more details on these types of packages, send me an email so that I can set up a time for us to chat in more depth about your special day!

If you're looking for general event photography for gatherings such as bridal/baby showers, gender reveal parties, or any other type of celebration, my rate is $175 with a three-hour minimum. 

Within six weeks of your session (eight weeks for events), I'll post an online proofing gallery where you'll be able to download your digital images and purchase a variety of professional lab prints, including gallery wrapped canvases. You'll also be able to share the gallery with friends and family for them to make  their own digital image or print purchases! 

If you have any questions at all, or if you'd like to book, please feel free to shoot me an email. I'd love to hear from you!

 

Families

Calling all families, big and small., furbabies included! I'll meet up with you at your light filled home for me to capture some sweet moments of you all in your sanctuary.  Let's make pancakes for brunch from scratch with your little ones while you sip on your freshly pulled shots of espresso (or mimosa, haaay!). I'll capture the rituals that make your family like no other.

 

Or we can head to your favorite beach or park for an afternoon of playfulness and silly moments frozen in time that you'll cherish forever. Pack a picnic, feed the ducks, and then cuddle under the warm filtered sunlight from the trees above. These moments can be so fleeting and I would love to spend time with your family to document the uniqueness that is your tribe.

I want my images of your family to take you back to these special days as the years pass and your children grow.

Couples & elopements

Just because couples photos are the best! You don't need to have a special reason to do a session of the two of you. But if you're a mom and dad, you best believe I'll be sure to snag some photos of you just you two during a family session as well. We can do a full or mini session of just the two of you. Do you have some furbabies, too? Bring them along for the shoot!

As I mentioned above, I put it out to the Universe that I'm into the idea of shooting elopements and small ceremonies. I've photographed a number of big weddings with a lot of moving parts. But I'm drawn to the more relaxed vibe of intimate celebrations of love. There are so many photos I see on Instagram that I wish I had been the one to take. And the only way to make that happen is for me to say yes to photographing these events again! If you'd like more info, shoot me a note and let's grab some coffee to see if we'd be a good fit for one another!

MAternity &
Newborns

I love me some maternity sessions and every mama deserves beautiful photos of herself while carrying baby(ies)! Let's find some place magical and gorgeous to take these photos. I'll even provide a selection of maternity gowns for you to wear.  We can do a Mini or Full session to capture this special time.

When baby arrives, we'll do a Full Lifestyle Newborn Session and it'll take place in your home when the natural light is at its most abundant and ideally will occur within baby's first 6-14 days. Just remember that we're on baby's schedule, so these sessions are scheduled to last around three hours, giving us plenty of time for feedings, burpings, diaper changes, and outfit changes. (Mini Sessions are too short for newborns.) Or I can shoot a Fresh 48 Full Session in the hospital if desired.

I also offer a Maternity + Newborn Combo and it's a steal! You'll receive a Full Maternity Session along with the Full Lifestyle Newborn Session for $700 saving you $100! In order to take advantage of this special rate, both sessions need to be booked and both deposits paid prior to the Maternity session taking place.

portraits

Portrait sessions are perfect for high school or college grads. They're also ideal for your child's 1st birthday (cake smash anyone?) or ANY birthday for that mater! Maybe you're a bad-ass boss babe (or dude) who would like a cute (handsome) professional photo of yourself for your website or an online dating profile... we'll capture those with this kind of session.

Is it your pup's birthday or gotcha day? Let's celebrate! I adore my own furbabies, so I know how much you must love yours. I also enjoy taking photos of mine and I would love to take beautiful photos of your furbabies, too so that you can cherish those moments furever!

Are you a blogger/content creator/brand influencer in the area? If so, I can offer a special rate on portrait sessions in exchange for the exposure you may be able to provide for me. Feel free to reach out to me to see if we'd be a good match up for this type of collaboration!
