Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

Disclaimer:

I do not put a time limit on any of my sessions... I never schedule more than 2 sessions a day so that I have all the time in the world to work with YOU. I want to spend time with you! Get to know you, know that if we need to take a break and grab a cup of coffe or attend to a child's meltdown we have the time for that and we are in no rush. I want to let you into my world just as you are letting me into yours...

Portraiture

I offer simple portrait photography starting at $200 per session. 

This includes a photo session with as many outfit and scenery change as we want to run through. 

You will receive a thumbdrive or online password protected gallery (your choice) with all the best pictures from the session. Most of the time that is between 10-15 photos, however there can be more or less depending on the shoot. 

For more elaborate shoots (beach/glamour/pin-up/fashion) the price varies by the project, so please contact me for rates.

Engagement Photography/Couples Photography

Couple Sessions, whether for an engagement or to celebrate your love start at $300 per session. 

This includes a session with as many outfit and scenery change as you might like. I can offer advice on styling and location, or meet you where you had your first date/kiss! I love themed shoots, from Up! to fun 50s get-up, couples photography should be fun!!

You will receive a thumbdrive or online password protected gallery (your choice) with all the best pictures from the session. Most of the time that is between 15-20 photos, however there can be more or less depending on the shoot. 

Children/Family Photography

My sessions start at $300 for up to 4 people. Ask for rates for larger groups as well as for styled shoots.

This includes as many outfit and close scenery change you might want, while keeping in mind that we are working with children and that we want to keep them as cheerful as possible during the shoot!

You will receive a thumbdrive or password protected online gallery (your choice) with all the best pictures from the session. Usually it amounts to about 15-20 photos, however there can be more or less depending on the shoot.

If we have a meltdown during a session or we get together and realize that your toddler has just fallen asleep I am happy to work with you and figure out another shoot to "fix" what went wrong! I am easy going and really want to make your family happy with the photos I take. This might mean having to give it another go sometimes!

NewBorn Sessions

Newborn photos start at $500 and only focus on the newborn. Any family photos can be added to this as a package for an extra $100 on the same day of the newborn shoot.

These sessions are done in your house, or on location if you prefer an outdoor session and it is warm enough for a newborn (and let's face, we live in California, there is no reason we cannot make an outdoor session work for us!). I provide props and style the session to your liking. We discuss all of those details before hand of course, or you can provide styling and clothes that you prefer your child to be photographed in if you have a vision of what you want.

You will receive a thumbdrive or password protected online gallery (your choice) with all the best pictures from the session. Usually it amounts to about 20-25 photos (or 30-35 with family package added to newborn shoot), however there can be more or less depending on the shoot. If we have a meltdown during a session or we get together and realize that your baby is simply not comfortable with a stranger there that day, I am happy to work with you and figure out another shoot to "fix" what went wrong! I am easy going and really want to make your family happy with the photos I take. This might mean having to give it another go sometimes!

Maternity Sessions

Maternity sessions start at $350 and focus on the mother. Family members can be added to the Maternity session, simply contact me to discuss prices. 

These sessions can be taken where you are comfortable... in your home, at the beach, in the forest... Styling can be provided if discussed before hand otherwise I will assume you come prepared in what you would like to wear for these special photos. 

You will receive a thumbdrive or password protected online gallery (your choice) with all the best pictures from the session. Usually it amounts to about 15-20 photos, however there can be more or less depending on the shoot. I want to work with you and get that one perfect picture that will remind you over and over again of that beautiful time in your life!

Birth Photography

As a Birth Photographer I am on call 24/7 around the time of your birth. I only shoot three births a month in order to make sure that there will not be any risk of births overlapping. In the very rare case that they do I have a second brilliant photographer that I can contact in case of emergency to come and take your pictures so that your moment will not be lost. Birth sessions start at $950 and capture everyone that you have present at your birth, with the mother and baby obviously in focus.

These sessions are of course long sessions... I arrive as soon as you tell me your labor has started to get those pre-active labor shots of you and your family getting ready for the new arrival and stay well past the baby arrives in order to get the first moments of his or her life. I do not use flash photography at births, having given birth myself and knowing how sensitive you can be at that time, my job is to create beautiful images for your family to cherish, not to stress you out! What this means is that if you are more comfortable in a low light environment to give birth, you will get grainier, vintage-y feeling images. If you are comfortable with more light, you can get crisp more modern looking images. We can discuss preferences before hand, and I can remind you and the people at your birth of what we discussed previously during the birth, but in the end... I just go with the flow when it comes down to it, and get the photos that I feel represent your birth the best at the time. In my portfolio you can see a very good example of each of the styles.

You will receive a thumb drive or password protected online gallery (your choice) with all the best pictures from the session. Usually for birth photography it amounts to 80-125 photos, however there can be more of less depending on the shoot.

Birth Packages

I have a few birth packages to offer if you'd like to combine more than one service (Maternity and Birth, Birth and Newborn, etc...), please inquire for pricing in such case.

Styled Session

I now offer styled sessions! These are a lot more time consuming before and during the session. You will get an MUA and Hair stylist. I will purchase wardrobe specifically for your session as well as props and background styling. Session prices will vary depending on what we work on. We will meet for one hour pre-shoot to discuss vision and feel of the session as well as final cost. I will then purchase and prepare the session and we will meet for about three hours the day of the shoot for the photos to be taken. 

You will receive a thumbdrive or password protected online gallery (your choice) with all the best pictures from the session. Usually it amounts to about 15-20 photos, however there can be more or less depending on the shoot.
