IMMEDIATE FAMILY SESSIONS
For you, your partner, children, and even pets! Sessions are typically 25 - 45 minutes long with 40+ photographs delivered 2 weeks later. You can print anywhere you’d like and share away on social media! I also offer fade resistant, professional grade prints and albums if you’d like to invest in heirloom quality products that will last for generations. These sessions are also perfect for maternity photos!
EXTENDED FAMILY SESSIONS
All of the above but with even more loved ones. Bring your grandparents, siblings and cousins, the more, the merrier! We’ll capture everyone’s photo requests and desired groupings. Sessions are typically 90 minutes long with 120 + photographs delivered 2 weeks later. You can print anywhere you’d like and share away on social media! I also offer fade resistant, professional grade prints and albums if you’d like to invest in heirloom quality products that will last for generations.
DESTINATION FAMILY SESSIONS
While most of my family sessions are taken in SLO county, I've photographed sessions everywhere from Monterey to Manhattan. If you have a location in mind that is significant to your family or are anticipating a family reunion and would like it documented, get in touch for a custom quote built around your ideal date and location.
Sure! After booking, you’ll receive a detailed guide with location suggestions, outfit tips, and comprehensive planning guidance.
Of course. I have a wide array of locations along the Central Coast I can recommend after booking and I also have my beautiful studio available if we face inclement weather or you’d prefer an indoor environment.
Navigating all of your special relationships is one of my greatest strengths, I intuitively know when large groups of people need direction and when to melt into the background and capture an emotional moment without interruption.
Plan to contact me in late summer for your ideal fall date as they book up quite quickly. I recommend a session in September or October so you can take advantage of any Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales. Keeping that in mind, I recommend scheduling your family session no later than two months before your ideal mailing date. You’ll receive your photos within two weeks but you’ll want to account for ordering, printing, and mailing them out, too.
Family sessions can be planned at any time! The Central Coast gives us such beautiful weather year round, here’s the setting you can expect with each season.
