For our session together, we have the flexibility to meet at a location we've collaboratively chosen or, if you prefer, I can come to your home. I particularly enjoy capturing families in their own homes, so if this type of session interests you, please feel free to inquire!

Southern California offers a plethora of gorgeous and fun locations to explore. I'm eager to grasp your unique vision for your photos, and together, we'll craft a setting that brings your creative ideas to life. I love exploring new and beautiful places, so if you have any specific locations in mind, I'm all ears. To ensure the most enchanting outdoor sessions, I plan our shoots around the golden hours, two hours after sunrise or two hours before sunset, as they offer a truly magical canvas for capturing natural beauty at its finest.

A typical family session lasts for about an hour.  I like to spend some time at the beginning of our session getting to know you and your children. This will include me asking you questions and interacting with your children. I want you to feel comfortable, relaxed and most importantly have fun!

Newborn sessions are best during the first two to three weeks of life. I will come to your home and and capture your new tiny family member. My newborn sessions are lifestyle in nature. I aim to capture the sweet love and connection you have with your new baby, as well as his or her tiny little features. My goal is to capture timeless images that you will treasure forever. Newborn sessions typically take about 1- 2 hours.

When you order prints from me, they come from a professional lab with high quality machines that are properly calibrated.  The images will be printed on archival quality paper, and the colors will be exactly as intended.  This quality can not be matched by one hour photo labs or drugstore printers.
