HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?
DO YOU DO INDOOR PHOTOGRAPHY?
I typically book up 4-6 weeks in advance for weekend dates. During the busy fall season, I am fully booked by early September.
No, I shoot all of my sessions 100% outdoors in the gorgeous natural sunlight. This includes newborn sessions.
WHAT TIME ARE SESSIONS SCHEDULED FOR?
HOW MUCH EDITING DO YOU DO ON THE PHOTOS?
My post-processing includes color corrections, light adjustments and my own artistic enhancements, followed by blemish removal and light skin softening. A small nip & tuck here or there may be involved as well. Shhh...it’s our secret!
Newborn sessions are scheduled during the week and in the morning hours when they are the sleepiest. All maternity, child and family sessions are scheduled 1-2 hours before sunset for the prettiest lighting. Exact times vary depending on the time of the year.
Can I BRING MY DOG?
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
Yes! I love fur babies and have one of my own! As long as the location allows it, please bring ALL members of your family!

DO YOU PROVIDE PROPS?
WHAT IF SOMEONE IN MY FAMILY IS SICK THE DAY OF THE SHOOT?
For happy looking photos we need happy & healthy family members. If you and/or anyone in your family is feeling ill, please contact me to reschedule. Otherwise, if anyone is showing any signs of illness at your session, the shoot will be cancelled on the spot and your retainer and session fees will be non-refundable.
WHAT IF IT RAINS, IS WINDY, TOO HOT, ETC?
ARE you fully vaccinated?
We are pretty lucky living in Southern California; great weather is usually year-round. However if there are poor weather conditions on the day of your session such as rain, smoky air, high winds, or 100+ degree heat, we will need to reschedule.
Absolutely! I am up-to-date on all vaccines including the flu shot, and have had my COVID-19 booster. The same goes for everyone in my household. My family and client's safety is a top priority for me. I'm married to an ICU nurse so we do take this very seriously in my family.
