The Experience

This experience is just as unique as you are. My passion is to help you see the beauty in your story. I don't want to squeeze you into a little white box and force your family to sit still and smile. Instead I will choose a beautiful outdoor location where your kids can run and play. Where you can spend time exploring and enjoying your family, while I am documenting your togetherness. Where you can relax and just be in the moment, snuggle up, dance in the beautiful sunlight, close your eyes, breath it all in, and simply forget that I am there. What I want for you are real moments, tiny intricacies that will take your breath away. I don't want you to just see your portraits, I want you to feel them.


Is there a session fee?

No, there is no additional charge for your session. However a $200 non-refundable deposit us due at the time of booking and will be applied to you purchase.

Do you sell digitals?

Nope, but you will receive complimentary copies along with your purchase. I want to give you something tangible, something that you can feel the weight of in your hand and your heart. Something that shows you were here, who you are, and where you came from. Something like beautiful prints, albums or wall pieces that you can pass down through the generations. However, because I know digitals are important to you, you will receive the corresponding high resolutions digital copies of whatever you decide you can't live without.

How long are your sessions?

Sessions usually last 60-90 minutes or as long as we all last. Dads don't worry this is more like an family adventure than a portrait session

When do sessions take place?

Sessions are conducted in the hours of the most beautiful light, the golden hour, sunrise, sunset. Approximately 1-2 hours before sunset set.

Where do sessions take place?

Where ever the path may lead us! I am in awe of the beauty of nature and love watching my families/clients put their cell phones down to explore and connect. I find it so inspiring. There is something about nature's beauty and photographing families that feeds my soul. I love exploring places with my families and seeing it through their eyes. Watching your children's excitement as they discover the world around them is the best it gets. I am totally drawn to rivers and lakes for my family sessions. They are both magical and serene, especially when mixed with a beautiful family.

Do you provide styling assistants?

Yes! I want to make this an easy, fun, and amazing experience, so I work closely with you when it comes to styling your family. I love helping families coordinate their outfits. I have an awesome styling guide and great shops to refer you too. However, most of my families find most helpful is if I send them links and outfit suggestions. I am here to serve you in the best way possible.

When is the best time to book a session?

Some of the best times to consider booking your session is summer, while on vacation, or planning a weekend get-away. Its always hard to work around everyone's schedule, with parents working, school, the kid's sports and activities. Trying to juggle all those schedules is hard enough without trying to find time to squeeze in a photo session. Since most people plan at few get aways throughout the year (whether it's camping, hiking, a weekend away) booking your photo session during those times works really well. Think about it, you're all in one place together, no other commitments, having fun and making memories. What better time could there be and what better way to celebrate your time together. Summers are hot in Sacramento, so when you're planning an escape to a cooler destination, let's get together an plan your session too.

Do you do travel sessions?

Omg yes! Most of my fav spots require a little road time, but if you're planning something bigger, then let's chat and see if we can make it happen.

Currently I do not charge extra for travel sessions. I love exploring places with my families and seeing it through their eyes. Watching your children's excitement as they discover the world around is the best it gets. Besides, who doesn't want to shoot in gorgeous locations!

Some places I have yet to shoot at but would love to are, Joshua Tree, Ruby's Beach WA, Oregon, Patrick's Point in CA, Zion National Park Utah... Seriously my list is endless

It's so important to cherish your family, preserve your memories, your love, your story. I’d love to be help you do just that.
