How to book & what to expect:

From our very first conversation, I may ask you to start thinking about your portrait session with the end in mind. Meaning I want you to start by thinking about what your goal is for your portraits. I truly believe that the best place for your portraits is beautifully printed on the highest quality materials for you to display in your home and enjoy every day, not sitting on hard drive and forgotten.

So, with that in mind, what is your vision and dreams for your session? What is it about your children that you would like to remember in 20 years? And how do you want to remember it? Is it in an album that can be handed down from generation to generation? Or a wall portrait that will make you smile when you pass by it every day? Or maybe it is a collection of images arranged in a wall gallery that highlights your growing family year after year?

Whichever way you choose to display your images, we begin with the end in mind. Before we shoot any images, we create a plan for how they will be displayed in your home. Creating a plan and shooting for that plan results in a session that makes magic and is the recipe for a successful portrait process every single time.

Newborn, mini studio, or sunset session… choose your —> package! <—

Contact me and fill out a booking inquiry form –> HERE <—

Once you have filled out the form, I will look over your answers and send you a link to my booking calendar or a link so that you can pay the retainer of $100 to get your session date officially reserved! Session balance will be due the day of your session.

Once your session date is reserved! I’ll have you answer a questionnaire that allows me to gather information about you and your unique family so that we can plan your special session accordingly. Again, I’ll want you to keep in mind where you will want your pictures to go in your house and how you would like them to be displayed… and we’ll use that information to help us both plan for your session and get the look you want!

It is not just a photography session:
It is an experience you will remember!

  • studio in Napa, CA
  • design & consultation to help you get ready
  • fun, exciting photo shoot even dad will love
  • heirloom-quality products to enjoy
  • artistically edited digital images in my four editing styles for you to choose from: no filter, matte filter, B&W, B&W matte
  • in-person ordering appointment
  • client closet available

Expect a lot of snuggles and fun! I promise! And yes, if you are hiring me for a newborn session, trust that your baby is in good hands since I have over 6 years of experience specializing in newborn sessions and have learned from the best of the best in the industry.

1-2 days after your session, you will get an online gallery of proofs that allows you to see all of the best images from your session ‘softly edited” and you can pick your favorites (# varies depending on the package you chose). Please make your selection quickly, since I will need to edit your pictures to perfection before your ordering appointment.

Your ordering appointment is where we’ll reveal to you your final images. I will give you your access code to your gallery so that you can access it later on your own and share with friends. But my services doesn’t stop there…

As a professional photographer, I have access to professional printing labs that allow me to order museum quality prints and products so that these pieces you order will last you a lifetime and beyond. What you can order from me, you will be able to pass on for generations, which is truly a priceless gift to give your children. Those moments where you sit around together flipping through pages of memories and reminisce… there is nothing like it. Before your ordering appointment, I’ll have you take pictures of your rooms where you might want to hang your pictures and I will help you decide which styles and prints will be best.

Can’t wait to work with you 🙂
